LucasArts boss Paul Meegan has said the company is watching both Kinect and PlayStation Move closely in regards to using both motion controllers for internal development.

“There are some obvious opportunities. We’re keeping a close eye on the tech,” Meegan told MCV.

LucasArts has licensed out the Star Wars brand to Ghostbusters developers Terminal Reality for a Kinect game that will be published by Microsoft Game Studios. Details of the game emerged overnight, with more to come during Microsoft’s E3 press conference tonight.

Meegan says that its been “working closely” with MGS and Terminal Reality to “create a completely new Star Wars experience for the Kinect audience.”
