Venturebeat: We reported recently that Microsoft was preparing to announce a gesture-control system for the Xbox 360 at the E3 show in Los Angeles starting Monday. Now we've peeled back another layer of the secret.
The motion-sensing control system that Microsoft is working on is key to its attempt to win back market share from Nintendo. We've heard that Microsoft is not only working with 3DV Systems on this but also one of 3DV's competitors, Prime Sense.
Sony has its own effort in the works as well because everyone knows that gesture-control, or using your whole body to make things happen in a game, is important to making games more appealing to broader audiences. Controllers with lots of buttons and joysticks are passe.
