Sony: PlayStation Move Will "Focus On The Core Gamers"
We try and keep an eye on PlayStation Move news, especially in regards to how Sony wishes to present their new motion-sensing technology to the public.
Recently, it seems as if Sony wishes to separate themselves from the competition thanks to one very important trait; unparalleled accuracy. In a recent interview with Tech2, Sony India head Atindriya Bose spoke about such accuracy delivering pinpoint control "into the domain of core gamers." It's interesting that Bose admits one thing- the "core experiences" won't come until after the initial run of family-oriented launch titles.
"While the initial launch games will focus on the family audience with fun games, PS Move will also have focus on the core gamers. Given the precision factors, there will be a number of core games from the action/adventure/shooting genre that will be coming in with Move functionality. This will not be restricted to SCE games but will cover many of the other publishers' titles also.
With the launch of PS Move, the motion sensing gaming can truly get into the domain of core gamers while enchanting the family gamers with fun games of their choice."
Although we know they probably need to lead with the family-friendly products, we're most interested in the games that target the "core gamers," which would be a definite change of pace in comparison to the Wii. Plus, we know Kinect will have some intriguing products for the hardcore followers, so the competition will likely be quite stiff.
