It's a terrible gimmick, I'm content with my current controller.

I for one, think that with a motion-sensing controller, it could really push MS to get to the more casual gamers that they are trying to target more of.

I hope it does not come to be. The Wii is already set with it's own motion sensing control and the Playstation 3 ended up cutting the motion sensing that it had in their controller

I really dislike the Wii's motion controls outside of Wii sports, and Sixaxis just doesn't work well for anything I've tried, so I for one am against motion controls.

Sony had to cut their motion control cause it was poorly implemented.

The idea for a motion sense controller for the Microsoft would be about the same as the those Scene It controllers. They will never ever become a viable way to control your games. But will work with the types of games that are obvious for the control scheme. I am all for it coming out but I won't be first in line to buy it unless there are good games that use it well.

Even if they do have motion controls I don't want to use them anyway. With the PS3 I always turn it off.

actually, that would be very lame considering the idea being taken from a copycat,(PS3), who took it from Wii, who took it from Dreamcast.

I think it's pretty ridiculous and it's also why I think the Wii Motion plus is a bad idea. Not because the idea itself is bad but because since it isn't part of everyones system it makes the amount of games that can offer it very limited. If it came with the system at launch it would be fine but this far out in the 360's life cycle it just doesn't make sense. I'd say wait and do it for their next console when they can have it ready for launch.

First, to the couple of people who said that Sony cut the motion controls out of the PS3, that isn't true.  The new dualshock controllers still have tilt support, it's just that most games released still don't use it in any interesting ways, if at all.

As far as a motion controller, I think it would be a poor idea.  I thought the same thing about a lot of other products during Microsoft's E3 press conference.  Rather than obviously and desperately trying to grab at the audience that made the Wii a huge success, I think Microsoft would be served really well by just embracing the identity they've already created for themselves and just running with it.

I don't mind if MS decided to put it in the 360, but I don't think it would be necessary to do that. The 360 controller is fine as it is now.

Nah, I wouldn't care for it, unless the new 360 games they made forced me to use them. No offense to you Nintendo gamers out there (I am one myself and I do own a Wii), but look at the Wii. The only reason their motion sensitive control is pleasurable at all is because it appeals to people that never play games. Since I am a hardcore gamer, I could care less about how "cool" these simple games are just because they use new ideas. So no, forget motion sensing!

Actually, I'd be pretty happy - as long as M$ can come up with some comparable games to the Wii sports stuff, I won't have to buy a Wii for my daughter in the next few years or so.  As long as they learn from the mistakes that others have made, they should do alright.

Exactly. The Xbox 360 controller is great as it is. It has a good bit of weight and it has a good feel to it. Besides, most games that would use the motion controller I would never play.

I really wouldn't care for it at all. If you look at the main player demographic of 360 users, then I think you can agree that they won't appreciate it either. Let Nintendo keep their motion sensor stuff.

Uhh, when? Where do you get your facts, lol. Many games use it in pretty smart and casual ways, but thank god nothing like the Wii (flailing the stick all over).

They are trying to target the casual more, just look at what they are doing. New motion sense controller, new dashboard, Avatars, and games like Lips (SingStar type of game, Sony did great with that casual market), and Scene It (Buzz rip off, which was a huge casual game in the EU).

So I think they are trying to move in that direct a lot more.

You know the term they are using for this new controller? "Six degrees of freedom". Ever heard of that before? Ring a bell? Exact same slogan Sony used in 06 when they debuted the controller, now 2 years later MS is doing the same thing, but in the form of a Wii mote. The current 360 controller is great, there is no need for a new one. Have you seen the videos of it? Looks ridiculous. Sony did it right by putting it IN their controller, where MS is making a whole new controller for it. :( I think its a bad idea, just stick with the 360 controller, if anything add motion sense into that.

Actually it won't be Wii sports kind of stuff. Because this uses tilt controls, like the SIXAXIS, but in the form of a stick, like the Wiimote. So playing a game like golf or tenis wouldn't be possible. Well it would, but highly innacurate, like the SIXAXIS.

What he said... the 360 Experience isn't about flailing around like a retard we'll leave that for the Wii. When you get a 360 you want that perfect ergonomically designed masterpiece in yer hands & pwn n00bs in the fun-est games possible. PERIOD!

it works on Wii because they took time and care to get it right. it won't work on 360 because their stuff is too expensive and they're just making it to copy nintendo.

I dunno.  I'm pretty liberal about the release of accessories like this, but I don't think I would ever buy it.

As a casual gamer, I am much more content with sitting around, relatively still, as opposed to weaving the controller through the air.  It's just not necessary for me to enjoy the games.

Most games on the Wii don't even make good use of the motion controls, and I think it would fail on the 360. Microsoft won't be able to grab the casual market by just copying what is already out, and I think the hardcore gamers don't want motion sensing anyway.

My thoughts are that it is stupid as hell in the PS3 controller already, it's still not yet proven itself to me even on the Wii, and it will be just as stupid on the 360.

SIXAXIS motion controls are just a side feature, could be used in neat ways like they have in many games, but most games they are just a little addition, sometimes they work well and are fun, no harm (ie HS, R&C, UDF, etc), but the other games, mostly 3rd part stuff, are usually just shitty tacked on mechanics that don't need to be there.

Speaking as a Neutral, I am totally against any company besides Nintendo incorporating motion sensing in their controllers. It just seems that each console has its own appeal. The PS3 plays blurays and makes you fly, the Xbox 360 allows players to connect to anybody and everybody and explodes causing you to fly, and the wii gives users a chance to wave their arms around their rooms (mimicking a flying bird). They are all unique and should stay that way.

No, I think it's the giant WindTunnel-esk noise coming from the Xbox that causes you to fly.

At this point, releasing a motion controller for the 360 would be pretty pointless. Even if Microsoft bundled the controller with all future systems, only a small percentage of 360 owners would have it. They would be splitting their market much like they have with the hard-drive situation.
