SEGA’s Move and Natal projects to court PS2 crowd

SEGA West president Mike Hayes has said, once again that the titles it’s working on for Natal and Move would be revealed at E3 and that the projects will appeal to a specific type of player.

Speaking in an interview with IndustryGamers, Hayes believes that what the company has in store will appeal to the PS2 crowd.

“We’re very supportive of both [controllers], said Hayes. “It’s too early to give out details on that, but we’ll provide that at E3.

“The thing we like about these [motion control] applications is that they tend to suit the traditional Sega genre. Look at the phenomenal success we’ve had with games like Mario & Sonic, which effectively is a whole variety of party games that happen to be based on the Olympics. And we’ve done very well recently with Sega All-Star Racing.

“So we actually like the fact that Move and Natal will bring in more of what I’d call the PS2 type of consumer for those platforms (Xbox 360, PS3), which then suits very much the IP that Sega has. So I’d say we’re fully supportive of both equally, because they’re both very important partners for us as we try and sell more software.”

It was announced last year that SEGA was one of the publishers slated to make games for Natal.
