GNT: Motion controls in our favourite games? Get used to it!

With the announcement of the latest FIFA 13 features this week, many were looking forward to the next instalment of a franchise which provides glory, hard-work and great co-op gameplay. Towards the end of the list of new features however, fans of the series would have looked twice to believe that FIFA 13 will be compatible with both the Xbox 360’s Kinect and Playstation’s Move functions. “Why would they include this?” (FIFA 13, Kinect, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

Actually i can understand move as its like the wii controller and works quite well in Fifa games. Kinect i can only see being used for goal kicks as not really sure how it would work.

By all accounts they did a great job with the most recent Tiger Woods without affecting the enjoyment of people who don't want to use motion controls so why not this game?

Kinect can contribute a lot to a lot of a genres - you have obvious ones FPS, fighting, RTS, sports, dance - but also menu navigation, voice functions and other stuff that could work in almost any game.

If it doesn't detract from the core gameplay, it's sorta acceptable. I say "sorta" because it could have zero negative impact on the core gameplay, but not really be of much use. In cases like that, it's pretty much a gimmick, and I'd rather the developer have spent that time working on something else.
