Gamasutra Interview: Meet the Man Behind the Move

The R&D manager tells Gamasutra how he got from underwater robotics to the gaming industry, why he thinks the traditional gamepad will remain relevant despite motion controllers and where he thinks the competing Kinect for Xbox 360 succeeds, and where it fails. (Industry, PS3, Richard Marks)

Great interview. I knew Indiana was huge for Media Arts and Sciences, but I didn't think someone so nationally recognized in the gaming industry would be from my home state. Gives me a little glimmer of hope as I go into this field.

Dr. Marks is awesome for one big reason, he is not a douchebag at all. he is a really smart guy who has hands on the technology.

It's assholes like Kudo who make motion gaming look retarded. Dr Marks is a straight up dork. He's really moddest and kind of a goober around the pretty ladies like Veronica Belmont(loving her so much) and just tells it like it is. If there is a con he brings it up, talks about limitations and how it can be improved. There is no bullshlt with ol Richard Marks, not scamming, no lying, no three ring circus. Plus the guyhas a real degree, unlike 99% of anyone who comes on the stage to talk about their games. he is not a stage front, or an actor, just a really smart dude trying to innovate through Sony.
