Satoru Iwata has told the Financial Times that Nintendo previously fiddled around with camera-based motion controls and decided to pass on ‘em.

The firm eventually decided that “accelerometer-based technology”, like what’s in the WiiMote, worked better.

Iwata admitted, however, that the company will wait and see what Microsoft and Sony do before regretting the decision.

“Until they say when they’re releasing it, how much it costs and what software it comes with, we won’t know whether that is the route we should have taken,” he said.

    Could they just all stop going on about their stupid controllers? Get some good games on your consoles and no one will care how it is controlled.
