IGN's Nate Ahearn ponder uses for Sony and Microsoft's new peripherals hitting stores this fall.
April 16, 2010 - In the minds of many self-proclaimed "hardcore gamers" motion controls are a bad thing. They're seen as a gimmick, and for good reason, as they've often been used as such on platforms like the Wii and in games like You're In The Movies on Xbox 360. But one genre that has seen some signs of worthwhile motion control use is sports, where many times having a club (read: controller) in your hand and swinging around like mad makes total sense. While it's true some sports games should be left alone (being the sports guy here at IGN, I certainly don't want my favorites ruined), I could see both the PlayStation Move and Natal being used cleverly in very specific instances to increase the fun and realism of playing sports games.
