- In an interview
with Eurogamer following the Develop Conference
, Kish Hirani
and SCEE's vice president of research and development, Paul Holman
, shared just how accurate the upcoming PS3 Motion Controller
To quote: The controller, reports Sony, is incredibly accurate.
"What most people are really surprised about is the precision," Sony's Kish Hirani, head of developer services, tells game site Eurogamer.
"It's scarily good. The army has had this sort of technology for a long time, so a lot of academians have seen these things, but when you see a consumer space device with this level of accuracy – that's when developers say, 'Wow.'"
Something else that might make developers say "wow"? It's possible to set the color of the controller's light up ball.
"I'm not a games designer, but if I was I might use it as a muzzle flash if you're using a gun, or use it as a paintbrush you can use to dip in and pick up different colors," Hirani adds.
"There's always room for wizards..." Color could also come in handy for when four of these controllers are used at once. Another tidbit? The new controller will have buttons!
