Mirror's Edge and Mass Effect Art is Pricey

Mirror's Edge Art

While we've already discussed how much we think games are art, we weren't necessarily thinking the kind you put on your wall. However giant representations of both Mass Effect and Mirror's Edge can now be bought and the big ones cost over a thousand dollars.

Why so much? You might be asking. Apparently it's because these digital art prints, are, "museum-grade Certified Art Giclees™" which essentially means it's a very high DPI inkjet print. Available over at Cook and Beckler, the announcement of these new prints suggests that they are: "meant to present the digitally created concept art in the best possible quality and are aimed at contemporary art collectors and enthusiasts."

These prints will apparently only be available through Cook and Becker and are of a limited quantity.

While these prints are way more expensive than I can afford for a bit of wall art, they do look pretty fantastic. Hopefully someone will grab these pictures and make them available on a canvas for a bit less as I wouldn't mind having one on my wall.

What do you guys think? Would this look good in your house?

Perhaps but digital printing

Perhaps but digital printing even at such ridiculous DPI does not come close to the actual in game art experience, if you waited twenty years printers by then might be powerful enough to print perfect pixels regardless what kind of paper is used. Unfortunately you would come across an impass, games of that era will be twenty years up the proverbial technology chain. Its no different from the world of photography, digital cams are simply no replacement for traditional photo savvy users.

Play game on highest res,

Play game on highest res, turn quality setting all the way up, position your character/camera in a nice looking area, take a screenshot. Print on poster sized glossy paper, frame it and voila! art. you can do the same with movies. just no legal resale value.
