PSXE Poll Update: Motion Sensing Will Have A Positive Impact
Well, despite some of the more heated comments we've seen that have attacked the idea of motion sensing in this generation, it seems a great many of you definitely like this new technology.
In fact, the vast majority of you believe motion sensing is either "okay" or "great for the industry," and you're pretty much split between those two responses. Developers seem split, too, although one - Heavy Rain designer Quantic Dream - has said they don't particularly like that direction, and see gaming shifting more towards the movie spectrum. On the other hand, other companies - like EA and Ubisoft - have expressed their interest in the new motion sensing technology being prepared by Sony and Microsoft, and evidently, it seems there will be plenty of compatible software. For our part, we don't mind cool new advancements in the industry, especially when it involves something innovative and even revolutionary, but we just don't want gaming to lose its focus. We can easily see how certain genres will benefit from this fresh technology, but we really can't see how it will enhance our enjoyment of RPGs, for example. And speaking of RPGs, now that a whole bunch are on the horizon for the PlayStation 3 (took long enough, but whatever), we want to know:
What's your most anticipated PS3 RPG? Now, we're leaving Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII off this list because the results would be too obvious. We know everyone wants those; we'd like to know what ranks almost as high on your list. Is it Level 5's White Knight Chronicles? Bioware's Dragon Age: Origins? Or that fantastic Demon's Souls we've been hearing so much about? Yes, we're including the latter title because it's not yet available in North America. Vote away, role-playing fans!
