Instead of going with Wiimote/Nunchuk controller idea?

You ever use the power glove?

It would of been radical, just so we could feel the power.

Sony is touting the use of "buttons" on their move flyer. A glove wouldnt work right as you would need to take one hand to press buttons on the other.

Now, if it was minority report type of gloves then sony would be doing their own pew pew pew.

They would have had to make different size gloves for kids, adults etc. Anyone can hold a Move controller, it's a lot more practical :)

Of course... what does that say about 3D glasses? Not as big of a deal as a glove, but still kind of something to take into account.

Also how to clean the gloves? e.g. when you sweat.
Conrtoller was a good Move Sony, see what I did there ;)

Because the Wii-mote is a proven concept, and, something like a glove would have to come in different sizes. One Move fits all.

Nintendo tried this with the power glove, it failed, I am glad sony changed their design plan!

Doesn't mean it cannot succeed now, especially with all of the advancements in technology since the Power Glove.

That actually sounds like a cool idea, they could've really differentiated themselves from the Wii with that. Plus don't you have to "put on" the strap when using Move/Wii anyway so I don't see why that would be a problem with the glove.

A Power Glove remake would have been awesome.

I think some posters above me might be too young to even remember the nes power glove. :)
