GDC: Blizzard's Pardo: Sony, Microsoft Need New Forms Of Gameplay

Speaking at a GDC luncheon with several game industry luminaries, Blizzard's game design EVP Rob Pardo said that Sony and Microsoft need to "come up with new forms of gameplay and new mechanics."

Um.. Sony and Microsoft are primarily hardware providers in the console game there Rob. You're the game developer... Maybe someone should clarify that role for you.

1. a good flight stick
2. a light gun similar to what the Sega master system and the NES had

Otherwise, the only other thing I'd like is a motion simulator chair like those used for 'After Burner' in the arcades. But that's not an input device but an output one.

As for a Wii like controller. meh.
