David Sheets of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
By now, the word has trickled into every crack and corner of the Internet that Microsoft is developing a motion-sensitive wand controller for its Xbox 360 console, and that the prototype design fairly resembles the wand available for Nintendo Wii...
Because the report goes against Microsoft's earlier position that motion-sensitive controllers were not on the horizon for Xbox 360 (but perhaps for its hoped-for replacement, the Xbox 720) and has no credible sources cited, gaming pundits were quick to jump on it and affix their own question marks: Is this good for Microsoft? Will Xbox 360 regain and keep the top spot among gaming consoles? Does Nintendo have anything to fear?
Well, in Game Guy's opinion, the answer is "no" to all three, because one huge problem still stands in the way of any new technology helping lift Xbox 360's fortunes: the Xbox itself.
