TGS 2009: Motion Controller and GT5
For all of you wanting to know what the final design is, here you go.
So, you heard about that price-cut for the wii? Well don’t waste your money (Or time) on that, and wait for something along the lines of this. The Playstation UI: Motion Controller. At TGS, they showed demos of Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition and LittleBigPlanet running with the motion control scheme, which, to me, is exhilarating.
For RE5, it sounds like one person is using the analog sticks to move and the other guy aims and shoots. Sounds awkward for when you want to play alone though; hopefully they describe the controls more later on. As for LBP, when you’re by yourself its no different, but with co-op, the other player moves around and shoots objects out the way and collects bubbles for you. Maybe I should take back what I said about the Wii. The Motion Controller is to be out by Spring.
