Paul Wedgewood, boss of Splash Damage, says he thinks shooters on the Move and Kinect have a lot of potential. While talking to ComputerAndVideoGames.com, the Brink developer stated that he he thought shooters could be done very well on the upcoming motion sensors on the HD consoles.
“I think these motion controllers have amazing potential for shooters, but perhaps not in the way people might immediately think (i.e. controlling motion),” Wedgwood told CVG.
“Perhaps we’ll think about that in the future, but we don’t have any plans for implementation in Brink.”
CVG speculated Wedgewood could be hinting at using Brink’s SMART system. When asked about the said system, Wedgewood said, “The idea is really straightforward. When you’re in combat and you want to get somewhere in the game world, you hold down your SMART button (which doubles as a sprint button) and it will help with jumps, vaults, mantling, sliding, and so on, allowing you to easily navigate any obstacles in your path.”
