Gary A Swaby Writes: As Microsoft and Sony are set to bring their own set of motion controls to compete with the Wii, motion controls have been the hot topic for the longest. However we are forgetting that Sony already has a form of motion controls installed with the Playstation 3, and it is known as the Sixaxis. The Sixaxis controls have been knocked constantly throughout the whole course of the Playstation 3's existence on the market. There are many games that utilize the six axis, and few of those experiences have been exactly pleasant.
People have always complained about sixaxis motions being required in video games. For example, many people hated the motion elements of Heavenly Sword, even though it didn't contain too many. Lair is a game that got nothing but negative responses due to the way you have to play with the controller, mainly people would only accept the game once it was patched with an analog controller option. There have even been cases where people were put off of Killzone 2 because of it's very few instances where it's required to use the sixaxis. It is a shame when people are put off such great games, just because of Sony's attempt to let the player interact with the game.
