Peripheral manufacturer In2Games has announced it is developing a Wii-like motion-sensing controller for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
3rd party, not in house, never going to work on an epic scale. Sony and Microsoft need to come up with a way to communicate to gamers of hardcore variety and homo motion control isn't the way to do it. nintendo's toys are their thing, let them have it. I'd like to see Sony and Microsoft keep gaming alive by innovating their software, not their hardware. Sorry to say, guys.
Now that just looks stupid... lol... lets wait for the official one.
I think the Wii's Wiimote Reversal Headtracking solution is the big time. The IR solution of the Wiimote also creates a great mouse alternative. I don't know about spamming my home with ultrasonic sound waves either. Dog owners bewared.
Lame. I won't be buying this.
Very lame. It even looks fake.
Without proper developer support this thing will work like poo. Your games need to be made with this controller in mind.
You're absolutely right, but I'm assuming they already thought of that. Maybe they know something we don't about Sony and Microsoft's plans for the future?
thats not what its gunna look like, if it is then some ones fitting to get sued. it will be wack though no matter what. unless its the sony one that breaks into two, that looks awesome.
for your butt, cause it's gonna be sh!tty
reading the comments? Because right now they must be pretty depressed and know that they lost their jobs.
SONY and MS can win over wii gamers by consistently delivering far superior titles to anything nintendo has to offer, not with a cheap copy of the wiimote.
You'd think so, but Wii "gamers" (past the Nintendo loyal) are made up of kids and old people. You could have Metal Gears of Halo Theft Fantasy XXVI and they wouldn't care, as long as Mario is there for mini-game madness.
"Metal Gears of Halo Theft Fantasy XXVI" First day Purchase for me! lol
Thats awesome. I agree. You can't really rival Mario games with much success... but pairing the 360/PS3 graphics with a "WiiMote" would be neat. If they did it right, it would be compatible with all previous games by simply measuring the "pointer" to the center of the screen. So anything higher then the center will simulate pressing up on the joystick. It takes a bit of getting used to but you could easily move, look and still use the majority of the buttons for various functions. It solves the problem of having to remove your thumb off the 4 front buttons to the second joystick.
I am probably the only one on these boards that actually thinks this is a good thing. I mean, anything that can broaden your horizon within a console isnt necessarily bad is it? I see a lot of pretty decent PSN games coming from a "PSmote". No it wont be the best thing since 2.4 but it will be a welcome addition to the PS brand. After all, how many guys have wives and gf's out there that are more into the wii than the ps3 or 360? I dunno, personally I dont see how this will hurt either brand. btw: I am not the biggest fan of slippery slope fallacy (look it up if you dont know it) so dont bring that "Its the beginning of the end" crap. There will always be games for us hardcore gamers, but the one reason why I love the PS brand is that the diversity is there for me to choose. It makes the experience worth the price, I fail to see how this is any different.
i will love the sh*t out of it if its the one that that guy showed a video of where the controller broke in two and you can climb a latter or punch. that looked like the best idea of a motion controller to me. i garentee its not going to look anything like the wii cause nintendo has a patent on that design. it'll be good watch.
you do have a good point about GFs. now i hope it does end up being good
To me, they can make as many peripherals as they want. Just as long as they continue to support the Hardcore game's market and give us our Gears of Wars, Fables, Metal Gear Solids, Final Fantasies etc. etc.
not really interested since im not a 5yr old kid lol
I wonder what she was doing with a controller lol
hmmm....looks like a dildo
Same people who made that gametrak glove where you fight using it on your ps2 it sucked and bombed BADLY as this will too.
great now the droids have got a dildo to go with their gaystaion installations SDF 2.73
Then I will buy it. I have the PS2 version which works with strings - and the Golf game. Actually works quite well.
I think Song and Microsoft should STOp focusing on the Wii and just cater to the hardcore gamers
