    As if the controls of RE5 weren’t screwed up enough, now they’re adding motion control?? 0_o

    It worked for RE4 on Wii, its considered the best version.

    The amount of focus on the wand thing is somewhat concerning. I was kind of hoping they’d have a whole bunch of ‘normal’ games to show, not a vast chunk of rehashes and tacked-on gimmicks.

    Heh – I only just heard about what actually happened at the Resi 5 demo. Dualshock 3 in one hand, wand in the other! Genius! Or possibly…. stupid! :-D

    Thats lame, the wand needs a numchuk in that case.

    I dunno – if they let you use one half of a controller instead of shelling out for another controller add on then perhaps that’s a good thing no? Or would you rather be forced to spend another £15 on something you already have?

    I’d like to see some 2-wand games too.

    why? the wand is already gonna be overpriced and you wanna buy 2 for every player?

    Isn’t the wand supposed to have a thumbstick, making the need for a separate one obsolete? I seem to recall them saying something along these lines, but I could be wrong…

    The pic from the Hirai speech doesn’t look like it, but that may not be the final design.

    No. Most games will just need one wand and a lot of people will likely get an extra for two-player games. Using two for a single player game opens up some interesting possibilities though. You could look about with one and aim within the screen with the other in a FPS for example.

    I read that article and saw the picture after this comment and apparently you are right. I still hope that this is not the final design -especially since I’d expect Sony to make a fuss announcing it, if it were- but this may not be the case.

    However, I’d imagine it would feel awkward having to hold a standard DS3 pad with one hand…
