PlayStation Move A Peripheral Killer?
I’ve just read a really good article over at PlayStation Lifestyle about the PS Move Killing Peripherals One At A Time.
To reiterate what the article discussed, there were days when game titles, such as Time Crisis, used the infamous GunCon, and of course GunCon 2. Even those peripherals brought many a gamer pleasure whilst shooting the bad guys. There was one problem with it. It was only compatible with one title!
With Time Crisis: Razing Storm making an appearance at GamesCom 2010, Producer Norihiro Nishimura told GamingUnion.net that there were plans for a new GunCon – a wireless one. However, it wasn’t made due to the fact Move was released.
So, you can probably see where I’m going with this, and looking at the article written by PlayStation Lifestyle, are we in agreement that PlayStation Move is a peripheral killer?
I, personally, would be in agreement – just a little bit. This probably is just the start, as most games will, in the future, have some aspect of Move incorporated into it; it will look to replace ‘some’ accessories/peripherals, but not all. If PS Move did kill all peripherals, this would mean the PS3 would be a casual gamer console and the hardcore gamers would be moved to one side. Not the kind of thing SONY would have had in mind.
For those that have a Guncon 3, you can actually use it with Time Crisis: Razing Storm! However, I’ll leave you with two questions that’s sort of related to this article – the PlayStation Move Navigation controller, or a Sixaxis/Dualshock 3 controller – which would you use? Is PS Move a peripheral killer in your eyes?
