And here's my added two cents. How about indie films made for vidgame platforms? You may have heard about a film called Paranormal Behavior, made for $15,000 in a week - and now topping the box office with about $30 million in ticket sales. It's a classic, minimalistic horror movie, perfect for the game crowd. As more people get accustomed to watching films on their Xboxes/PS3s/Wiis, it's only a matter of time before filmmakers plug in too.
