That's the only way that developers will actual start to take advantage of the devices. I know you'll disagree because of the comment you made, but I would really like more games to support move. If only for accurate aiming.

I hate motion control. with a passion.

It depends on the motion control in question. I like the DS, Vita and Wii U. I can tolerate Wii and Move (though I think the controller does the job better) but Kinect just sucks.

Can't wait for Until Dawn.

Motion controls are tapped. Nintendo leads everybody follows and fails. Ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages let me present to you, true market disruption!
