Hardcore Gamers Are All Hypocrites! Playstation Move and Project Natal Lovers

Ironstar Movement Writes: "It was only a little less than a year ago, that hardcore gamers were denouncing motion controls, and everything they stood for. But with the emergence of Project Natal and Playstation Move, it seems a huge amount of these once dedicated motion control detractors, have flipped the script and are now some of motion controls' biggest supporters. I'm sure we all know a hand full of friends who are raving about this, so there's no doubt you guys can relate to this annoyance."

To be honest I never really downed motion controls; I just thought Wii sucked in general lol jk, No seriously...

Wii gave motion controls a bad look with all the shovel ware published on the console; it will be great to see Sony or Microsoft bring some hardcore games to a motion control scheme.

That I said both would FAIL on my 1Up Blog:

Last year at this time we didn't have Motion Plus on the streets, nor even a hint of Natal or PSMove. Motion Plus took motion controls one step closer to being hardcore, and PSMove has taken it even further.

To act like nothing has changed over the past year but peoples opinion of motion controls due to "Mob Mentality", well that is being more than a little naive if not even borderline indignant. To be presented with new facts and evidence and to still proclaim "the world is flat" due to past popular beliefs is the epitome of stupidity. Motion Controls have moved forward, time for hardcore gamers to do so as well.

See you all on the battlefield.

There's nothing wrong with Motion Controls as long that it's well done like in 1st party Nintendo games and a few 3rd parties like Capcom.

the rest is crap

When the Wii was first announce as the Revolution I was disappointed that it didn't have HD graphics but I didn't write the system off. It was after the onslaught of party games and shovel-ware that my opinion of the Wii platform went south.

But you also have to think about it this way: No one had shown what motion controls could really do until Sony and Microsoft entered the fray. Most everything Nintendo showed off was either childish or awkward. Hardcore gamers never saw how motion controls would expand our immersion so we didn't care about them. Now that we have been shown how they can improve our experience we are interested.

That is not hypocrisy, but understanding. People aren't changing their minds on motion controls because their favorite console maker is doing it, they're changing their minds on motion controls because they have been shown that it can be used in a more hardcore context.

finally a article like this.
what took so long.
when it was just the wii 360 fanboys and ps3 fanboys marked it as not a console, but now they have it is like the next coming of jesus. do you see all the hype for the natal. no games and the only game it has lags and its only catching the ball and paiting, just imagine a much more bigger game. and also the avatars sometimes have a siezure.
show me something to be hyped about for natal. it can still be great it still have time before it is release.

the ps move proved to me and gave me a reason to be hyped. i was a fan of the wii and the move is just a better version of the wii with not only better graphics but lots of potential. just imagine a game that utilize the move that has better performance and visual then uncharted and god 3 and i know its going to be hard but nothing is impossible and GG prove that to us with killzone 2

This doesn't really make sense. Hardcore gamers haven't had a motion control experience that warranted another investment in a console.
