Resi Evil Alt Edition to use PS3 motion control “from top to bottom”

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 5 October 2009 19:06 GMT


Capcom’s Chris Kramer told GT that the PS3 version of Resident Evil 5’s Alternative Edition will be giving more than a little love to the machine’s upcoming motion tech.

“They’re going to be using motion controller on PS3 from top to bottom, going in from movement to combat,” he said.

“I’ll be very interested to see it in practice.”

Kramer added that 360 owners may want to start whistling if they’re after similar motion controls for the game, although it sounds as though the team’s planning some good shit for the other SKU, yo.

“I haven’t heard anything about Natal right now,” the PR boss added. “The team’s said it’s focusing on motion control support for the PlayStation 3 platform, and they’re thinking very hard about what they can offer to be of an equal level of interest for 360 players.”

Watch Kramer speak after the break. PS3’s motion tech ships next spring.
