FIFA boss David Rutter has admitted that he remains unconvinced with the latest motion technology.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Rutter said that Kinect or Move support will not be incorporated into the game anytime soon, as the team sees no reason to do so.

“I’m not sure [about Move/Kinect]; I don’t really fancy standing up and kicking a ball at a telly,” he said. “There are some cool things – a goalkeeper could work very well – but obviously we’re not talking about anything like that.”

The developer also mentioned 3D, saying that while it won’t be in FIFA 11, it’s probably something that will appear in future versions of the game.

“We have seen it working; it looks great,” he offered. “But within FIFA there’s too much going on, too much movement, too many camera angle changes for us to be easily supporting it at the moment. But yeah, we are looking at it.”

FIFA 11 is expected to be released in October this year for all formats.
