Cohort Studios: Move is “so much more accurate” than Wiimote

Move over, Nintendo. According to Cohort Studios CEO Lol Scragg, you’re no longer the coolest kid on the motion control block.

“The PlayStation Move is a great piece of hardware,” Scragg, whose studio is hard at work on one of the first Move-centric games, an on-rails shooter tentatively titled The Shoot, told Develop. “It has a fantastic feel to it and it’s incredibly accurate. We’ve had no issues with it, and the hardware and the libraries have come on well.”

“Having used both controllers a lot, I’d say it was clear that the Move controller is so much more accurate [than the Wii],” said Scragg. “And it’s not just across the X and Y-axis either, the Z axis is really accurate as well.”

Big talk? Oh yeah. But as it turns out, Scragg was only peppering us with warning shots from his hyperbole pea shooter. This, on the other hand, is a salvo from his megaton cannon:

“I understand that, if you read any of the forums, you’ll [see] people state they don’t need motion control, but that’s because they’ve likened motion control to the Wii. Once Sony and Microsoft start releasing their own games for their motion controllers, I think the core will come round to it.”

Madness. They’ll have to pry the gamepads from our cold, dead hands. Unless, of course, Scragg’s onto something. Guess we’ll find out later this year.
