Straight from da Kotaku.

It's pretty fucking ridiculous, you have to do a whole bunch of shit with your body to have stuff happen. I'm surprised they don't jsut use the vision camera, but at the moment it looks like s sensor bar.

If all the major consoles go the way of motion controls, I'm going to be pretty freaking unhappy about it.

I'll be okay with this as long as it's never mandatory.

If PS4 is motion i'm out.  I have a Wii and haven't touched it since beating No More Heroes.  Motion controls are a gimmick and do nothing for serious gamers.

I'm beginning to think Microsoft won't do motion controls until their next console is out, and even then it will be optional or only used for a few games.

But like it or not, motion controls are here to stay in some form.

I'm cool with motion controls as long as they're optional or minimally used. Several PS3 games, for instance, have found some smart ways to implement motion controls.

I like motion controls, but I think they need more input. Nintendo showed that it is a viable gaming controller, but with limitations. I've already preordered "Tiger Woods 10 / Motion plus bundle" for the Wii, so I'll get first hand knowledge of how it feels.

Microsoft wants the word on the street to be. It plays like a Wii... but better.

That's cool. I own a 360.

Fuck. Are they intentionally trying to alienate all of us? They have to know that most of the people that own their product would hate to see this exist. Right? What's wrong with a damn controller? Can't they be satisfied with their "hardcore" audience? If this actually affects me by making it mandatory next generation, I will have no where else to go.

I guess I have a PC...

I have many fond memories of nintendo and all the great things they done over the years, but if the Wii ends up turning all video games into motion controlled crap. Then FUCK nintendo for ruining video games.

*Giant face smack* 

I just realized what this years Microsofts E3 Press Conference is going to be like.

"Heres 5 minutes of games you care about... And now an hour of ugly Microsoft reps dancing and jiving for the new microsoft waggle thing while trying to convince us that the Xbox is actually casual."

Haha... So that's Sony and Microsoft now probably gearing up motion controls.

I wouldn't mind if Nintendo had actually found a real use for the controller since the Wii launched. That's not to say there aren't good Wii games, but some sports titles alone, I'm yet to think of a good example where motion is better than buttons.

I'll stand corrected if someone can tell me though.

Motion controls are okay if they are just not mandatory. I'm not up for looking like a complete tool bag whilst playing a shooting game, for instance. How is that suppose to work? Am I suppose to run in place to move, and start ducking into cover? It is unfortunate both Microsoft and Sony are (rumored) to be moving toward a casual basis, including motion peripherals. Most of the time motion controlling is not needed. (i.e. almost all PS3 games)

This going to make for some damned embarrassing (and funny) demonstrations at this years E3.  Cammy's goofiness last year will be elevated to a level like that of the Bolshoi ballet by comparison.  I wonder how this doohickey works.  I hope you don't need to have the room incredibly brightly lit for the thing to work.  Being able to play in a dark room is what makes the Wii's system of motion control superior to all the previous camera substitutes.

Same here man, I hope the Wii motion plus really improves the precision of the motion controls because right now it really is kind of a gimmick.

So, it's like those DSiWare games? Or uh, PlayStation Eye? I don't see them being able to apply decent controls to proper games, it's nice as a bonus (hence why DSi has it) but not for normal games, I think. Nintendo did it best with the nunchuck+remote combo, the design is ingenious and will be hard to replicate, especially with M Plus around the corner which will be what actually introduces actual motion controls for me. Until now, I thought the Wii's best thing is the pointer controls, and that won't be replicated with a system as described here. Well, motion controls were great for things like tennis and some waggling to add a visceral feel to attacks, but that's about it. Pointer all the way aside from that, at least until M Plus arrives. But hey, competition's good, if they actually manage to make something decent.

God damn.  People have been going on about how MS will be doing motion controls for years now yet they haven't.  Every conference people talk about this.
This may happen, but it's not going to be a main control method, only an eyetoy like add on.

Haven't we already realized that motion controls aren't reallyt great?

I think it's safe to say that even if this is true, it'll only be a few certain games that support it.
MS has bolded it several times--- they know gamers just really just want games.

MS will have a huge E3 conference this year though,I really do feel it.  Let's see what we can pretty much safely, and I do mean safely, assume to be announced
- Forza 3
- Lionhead's new ip (confirmed by gamespot)
- at least 1 new Rare game (confirmed by the scribes on rare)
- Halo 3 ODST gameplay.  This is an assumption of course, but it's coming out in the fall, and we haven't really seen anything about it.  BUngie seems to be excited for E3.
- Square Enix's new SRPG (although not sure if this is technicalkly to be announced at E3 or around the time)

and this doesn't fall in the list, but I think it's about time for Mistwalker to show what they've been working on, either at E3 or TGS.  And remember, this is just pre-E3 guesses.  You never really know what will happen.  For all we know Rare might show off they're 2nd game (they did say they should have them both out this year but whatever) and if they really wanted to, they could pull out with the big gun of a new Bungie game (but ODST will probably delay the announcement-- so not in competiion) as well as Halo Chronicles by Wingnut (peter jackson, payton, etc.)

But what if it has "Minority Report" type of interface with the dashboard.  That might be neat.

Or what if you could get out a real tennis racket to play a tennis game?  oh wait.  i guess you could just go outside and play.
