Cowen and Co. Analyst Prefers Sony’s Motion Control

When asked about what went under reported at this year’s E3, Cowen & Co. analyst said:

The Project Natal demo from Microsoft got most of the ink, but I really thought Sony’s demo was superior from a gaming perspective.

Natal appeared to me to be a technological solution in search of a problem. Do I really care if I can navigate my Netflix queue without using a controller? I had a very hard time envisioning playing Modern Warfare 3 using Natal. By contrast, I had a very easy time envisioning it (and enjoying it) using Sony’s control/motion capture scheme.

With the public putting so much blind faith in motion control, I’m glad to see more skeptics like this guy.

However, to be honest, I’m still skeptical about Sony’s wand device. How would one play Modern Warfare 3 with Sony’s wand? Would it just be a fancy light gun? You can’t turn more than 45 degrees or so since you need to keep looking at your TV. You would still need to turn/navigate with a traditional analog stick, and shoot/reload/jump/action with buttons.
