Microsoft Mum on Motion Control Rumors

In line with policy, Microsoft has declined to comment on rumors of a motion-controlled Xbox 360 controller.

A Microsoft rep offered Next-Gen the expected response, "Microsoft does not comment on rumors or speculation. And I have nothing further to share."

Gyration is the same company that pitched motion-sensing controller prototypes to Nintendo back in 2001. Nintendo didn't go with Gyration's design, but Gyration does hold multiple motion-sensing and remote control patents.

I remember the 360 fans saying that motion sensing is not needed this and that and now they are excited about it? Thats proof 360 fans are a bunch of hungry dogs like MS. If the good goes to the 360 you'll want it but if its only for another console, you bash it.

The things that MS has to do:

1. make it more responsive and more accurate than the Wii. I love the Wii, but I hate when it misses a movement.
2. Don't force it (or require it) in a game like they did in Lair. Make it an option that can be turned on and off.
3. Utilize it in XBLA games first.

That should help it get off the ground. Forcing it is the worst thing they could do. Just do it right.
