Crytek: PS Move “didn’t really lend itself” to Crysis 2

Wednesday, 2nd March 2011 07:21 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Crytek’s Hasit Zala has said the developer invsitgated the integration of Move support into Crysis 2, but ultimately decided it didn’t work.

“We felt that in terms of what we were doing and the controls we needed, it didn’t really lend itself to the kind of gameplay experience we were looking to achieve,” Zala told Eurogamer at GDC, although he did comment that it was something Crytek looked into.

“I think it’s an interesting concept, but I don’t think it’s quite there yet,” he explained.

“I can’t think of too many first person shooters that are really embracing it at this point in time.

“There’s definitely something there but also with shooter controls, the sighting, being able to change your modes and your armour and switch into stealth mode – that makes it difficult for us to work with it at the moment.”

You’ll have to break out a bog standard Dual Shock for the March 15 PlayStation 3 demo, then.

    Prefect opportunity to stand out from the crowd then.

    I just don’t understand that attitude. Move is the perfect replacement for mouse and keyboard on the sofa. KZ3 and MAG demonstrate perfectly well. Why such a PC centric developer can’t see that is a mystery to me. Too much much fear and conservatism ( small c ) amongst modern gamers and developers these days imo.

    Works great with KZ3, and I’m definitely more likely to buy a game with Move support than without.

    Stupid Crytech, the only reason I bought Killzone 3 was the super-funny PS move-support! Without it would be half the fun! Only plaing it with move and the sharpshooter including multiplayer! The reason I don’t buy Crysis 2 is because of the missing move-support! Crytech should play Killzone 3 and have a look at what the future really is about!
