No standard move controller for Playstation 4

March 17, 2011

Bosfight Gaming Blog - Playstation Move

We can’t deny that the motion controllers have been a huge succes. Despite that, it is not going to be the standard for the Playstation 4 says Dr. Richard Marks head of Sony’s R&D department.

“I don’t think that makes sense”

he said in an interview with gamasutra

“I said that pretty much from the beginning that we’re not trying to get rid of the gamepad. The gamepad is a really good abstract device. It can map to so many different things. It doesn’t map one-to-one to those things, but it doesn’t need to for a lot of game experiences.”

Marks did admit that the standard gamecontrollers scares a part of the audience,

“It is still intimidating to some audiences, some people. And so, those people might like Move better. So, I think having both offered to people that want to play is the right choice right now.”

It varies per game,

“I think the DualShock, it’s just better for some experiences, but the Move is better for other ones. There’s just no way to combine them and just say one is the right thing to have. I don’t mean there’s no way to combine them. I mean just throwing one of them away is not the right choice.”

I must admit that I do not own a Move controller or a Kinect, so for me this sounds quite logical. They didn’t convince me yet…
What do you think about this?

And this year’s E3 Winner is?

June 24, 2010

Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo who is the big winner?
They all had spectacular shows that’s for sure.

Microsoft:
+ 360 Slim very sexy
+ Halo Reach
+ Gears of War 3
– Kinect controller-less waggling

– No new anouncements

Sony:
+ Little Big Planet 2
+ A lot of Exclusive content announced
+ Kevin Buttler
– Wii HD waggling
– No New announcements except for Portal 2
– Playstation Plus

Sony's Kevin Buttler

Nintendo:

+ Goldeneye Remake
+ Zelda Skyward Sword
+ Kirby Epic Yarn
+ Metroid: Other M
+ Epic Mickey
+ Kid Ikarus

Metroid

Conclusion:
While Microsoft and Sony where busy slapping each other in the face with their motion controls and pimping with their exclusive titles, Nintendo just kept it real by going back to their core classics and bringing them back stronger than ever.
Also suprising everyone with a technological breakthrough by introducing a handheld that displays 3D without wearing any glasses. Even introducing a line up of games and movies backing it up! It’s is even able to take 3D pictures!

E3 is all about surprising the audience. Did Microsoft do that? No. Did Sony do that? No. Did Nintendo do that? Absolutely..

I believe this is the year Nintendo will get their hardcore audience back. By means of old school hardcore games.
Without a doubt they are the big surprise of this years E3.
(They even made me buy a Wii!)
