Humility knows no bounds. It also doesn’t know Sony, who are as arrogant as ever.
Dr. Richard Marks, the man behind the Eyetoy, and now the upcoming Playstation Move, who has gone on record to state that the Kinect is limited, has now stated that the upcoming Playstation Move peripheral, which is Sony’s me too entry to the motion controls bandwagon, is better than a PC mouse and keyboard for gaming.
“I think that PC RTS games are designed right now for the mouse and keyboard, but I think the Move can work with the more general idea of an RTS really well,” he claims.
“It could play a PC RTS really well, but I think there is modifications on the RTS genre that will be really good with. I play a lot of RTS games but the way I think about it is you have a landscape below you with all the troops, and imagine you’re the general and you just want to look out over your troops and select guys – tell them to attack there.
“I think that with Move would feel way better than a mouse for that, for example, and doing things that require some 3D information is much better with Move. The RTS genre has been designed not to require any 3D information, but having that extra dimension and all the angle data that we have too is also very interesting.”
Okay, we get it already. The Move and 3D, as propogated by Sony, are the future of gaming. Never mind that 3D will never catch on, and that the Move is a rip off of technology that’s already half a decade old.
