Speaking to GI, Sony’s EyeToy devs have questioned the viability of its rivals’ casual titles – including Microsoft’s You’re in the Movies – and casted doubt as to whether the Wii controller is being used to its full potential.
“I think that [with You're In the Movies] they’re probably going to have some technical difficulties to wrestle with,” said EyeToy designer, Sandy Spangler.
“They’re using some technical elements that are not reliable, at least not according to our experience. They’re using background subtraction to put you in the movie, and it’s not very robust, that’s why we haven’t done it in any of our games.
“If the white shifts in the room or something, it can stop working,” he added. “Good luck to them.”
Turning his attention to the Wii-mote, Spangler said, “It’s more intuitive, it’s very clear, as opposed to trying to figure out how to… use the Wii remote in ways that maybe naturally don’t make sense – you wave it a lot to do activities where you wouldn’t be waving in real life.
“Whereas what we always try and do with our games is make a direct correlation between the motion that you’re doing and the action on screen, the effect you’re having on the game.”

According to this MCV story, Microsoft is setting up camp in London’s Leicester Square this weekend, the main point of which is to show off Lips and You’re in the Movies.
It’s all part of the Xbox Trial tour, which will also visit Glasgow (November 8-9), Newcastle (November 15-16), Sheffield (November 22-23) and Bristol (November 29-30).
Should be fantabulous. More through there.

According to Microsoft reps at E3, a You’re in the Movies bundle – including the game and an Xbox Live Vision Cam – will retail for $60, writes Joystiq.
The camera itself costs $40, so if you fancy standing in front of the telly doing all manner of silly things with your body, then this could seem like a bargain.
No price was given for the game on its own, and we’re still waiting to find out how much it will cost in Europe. No release date either. We’re not very good are we?

You’re in the Movies, a brand new IP from Codemasters and Zoe Mode, has just been announced for Xbox 360.
The title’s about “making short, happy B-movies where your friends and families are the stars. You just know it’s going to be a cult classic,” said Shan Kim.
