EA’s confirmed to Eurogamer it won’t be adding PlayStation Move or Kinect support for Fight Night: Champion.

Gameplay producer for the game, Brian Hayes, said the use of the motion tech for the game may be “beyond the fitness level” of some gamers.

“It’s a little bit too twitch-based, not to mention the fact that standing on your feet for three minutes and throwing punches is something that, believe it or not, might be beyond the fitness level of most gamers,” he said.

Even Microsoft hasn’t said they’re expecting to see games like Fight Night usable with the Kinect control system.

“The motion-based control systems, since they are very new and aren’t on the market yet… Fight Night Champion has not been developed and is not currently being developed to utilise those.”

Hayes added future use of Move and Kinect from EA Sports boxing titles is “on the table”.

“It’s definitely something that’s on the table in terms of exploration for us, but Fight Night Champion is not being developed for Move or for Microsoft Kinect,” he said.

Fight Night: Champion releases next year for PS3 and 360.
