Console Wars: The Beginning – A Fan Film A new director is creating a film depicting a war between Playstation and Xbox



In a universe where consoles are re-imagined as planets, while games are re-imagined as sectors, the events in the sector known as Olympus changed the world of Playstanea (Playstation) forever.

Kratos had slaughtered all the Gods of Olympus, beings that once held control over the elements of the entire planet. 

The world descended into elemental chaos without gods to control them,  forcing survivors from different sectors of Playstanea to band together. The survivors were powerful, confident and selfish; the perfect character traits sought by Calypso, who finds great entertainment in bloodshed.  

Calypso offers Kratos, Cole Magrath, Colonel Radec and Sweet Tooth a chance at escaping the death of Playstanea, while manipulating them towards a hostile invasion of a neighbouring planet, Exbor (XBOX). 

Overwhelmed by the warriors of Playstanea's unbelievable strength, Master Chief and Cortana seek the help of heroes from other sectors of Exbor to join the defence of their world.


This film takes a unique angle, as it follows the perspective of Playstation warriors in this first Season, written in this story arc to be the 'evil' protagonists. Should we make it to Season 2, I plan to write it from the perspective of the 'good' antagonists. 

Console Wars may look serious, and there is an 'epic' aspect to it, but there will be generous doses of humour and gamer references to keep the entertainment light hearted and fun! 

I want to make you laugh, I want to make you smile and I want you to enjoy watching this film as much as I am making it. But most of all, at the end, I want only one thought to remain in your heads: “That was awesome!"

By getting this project funded, I hope to not only Kick-start Console Wars but my career as a film maker as well. 

I am confident that with my passion and the talent of my cast and crew, we can make something truly amazing. And that is why I have managed to get us as far as this concept trailer, we need your help for the rest!

More about the project can be found on the Kickstarter page, which goes in depth about funding, the director, and the process of filming the trailer and generating the idea
