Cohort Studios: The core will “come around” to new motion controls

Cohort Studios CEO Lol Scragg has said that once Move and Natal are released, the core player will come around to accepting the new tech.

Speaking with Develop, Scragg talked a bit about his firm’s experience creating The Shoot for Move.

“The PlayStation Move is a great piece of hardware,” said Scragg. “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], and it’s not just across the X and Y-axis either, the Z axis is really accurate as well.

“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.”

His comments kind of mirror’s Peter Dille’s thoughts on motion controls as well, ya know.

Move and Natal are both due sometime close to the holidays, and you can find out what the internet thought about The Shoot and more Move titles during GDC here.
