Monday, 6th June 2011 09:03 GMT By Johnny Cullen

LucasArts boss Paul Meegan has said the company is watching both Kinect and PlayStation Move closely in regards to using both motion controllers for internal development.

“There are some obvious opportunities. We’re keeping a close eye on the tech,” Meegan told MCV.

LucasArts has licensed out the Star Wars brand to Ghostbusters developers Terminal Reality for a Kinect game that will be published by Microsoft Game Studios. Details of the game emerged overnight, with more to come during Microsoft’s E3 press conference tonight.

Meegan says that its been “working closely” with MGS and Terminal Reality to “create a completely new Star Wars experience for the Kinect audience.”

    Move would be a much greater fit for a Star Wars game, it’s already proven that it can be great for shooters & it seems like a perfect fit for melee based games but so far, there’s been very few good examples. I’m still astonished they haven’t brought out a good RPG for Move, til then, I’ve no interest in buying the hardware.

    if Lightsaber = SW. Than i would agree with you. However, SW is not only lightsabers – “The Force” would much better implemented without ANYTHING in user’s hands! Hence, Kinect

    PS3 can do motion tracking with PS Eye. The Force just requires you push forward with both or just 1 hand. To get a pretty accurate Lightsaber movement i’d think the move will be the best bet and then just use the camera feed without the move to track hand gestures.
