Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has described Microsoft’s(Project NATAL) and Sony’s(PlayStation Move) rush to motion control as “threatening”.
In an interview for Edge, Shigeru Miyamoto was asked whether he can see parallels between the acceptance of motion controllers and the “borrowing” of analog sticks in the PlayStation generation. He answered by saying that “Nintendo always tries to make something that other people have never made before. So, because of that, other people might want to copy us in the end.” he continued “Whenever something we have created and presented is followed by copies, we always feel it is threatening.”
Both Microsoft’s Natal and Sony’s Move are set to be released towards the end of this year, and both will showed extensively at E3.
