Sony Also have New Motion Control in the Works?

1 min read

microsoft-buying-3dv-system[1] Motion control, while used before, is a prominent feature this generation. Nintendo’s emphasis on motion control and their wholesale ingurgitation of the casual market has meant that its competitors (whether they’d like to brand themselves as such or not) have reason to believe they have to follow suit. Rumours of Microsoft incorporating motion controls in the 360 have been circulating for years.

Sony’s PS3 of course already has rudimentary motion control – but reports from the inner sanctums of the internet indicate that Sony bigwigs may feel that its half-arsed waggle just isn’t enough. Seems that details of an LED-based system of motion control are surfacing and that if the internet ninjas are correct, will be demonstrated at this year’s E3.

I’m still of the opinion that motion control is this generation’s white elephant – It’s applied usefulness is still out of proportion to how it’s generally tacked-on and counter-intuitive.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    I can’t see the point of motion control in most games. Sports games that use a bat are the only games where I can see that it will enhance the gaming experience.
