Capcom Dev: Sony Motion Controller Means Wii-to-PS3 Ports


240w ago - During a recent interview with Capcom's Jun Takeuchi, 1UP (linked above) was told that several Japanese developers welcome Sony's upcoming PS3 Motion Controller as it opens the door for Wii-to-PS3 ports.

To quote from the interview: "1UP: What about Sony's motion control device?

JT: Well just being from Capcom, I can tell you that we have a lot of good ideas on how to make use of that technology and we're looking forward to putting them into practice.

However, speaking to other developers in Japan, I've heard a few of them say they were delighted by the Sony motion controller because they can just port over their Wii titles to the PS3."

As the PS3 has mostly hardcore gamers. I think this move is a brilliant one. Sony knows the only way to go after Wii's huge market share is to capture some of there younger generation gamers of that system. Just like the Wii got our Snake ( MGS ). Can you imagine Mario Brother's being on the PS3, lol.... The PS3 is giving player's no reason to look else where.

With the reliability of the Wii, AAA exclusives, Blu-ray, standard Wi-Fi, 1080p, $299 price, 120hd, using less power, just on and on, lol... But, this is not a fluke seeing how they ended up with the worlds best selling #1 and #2 gaming system from before. This one took a little time because they brought a new advanced technology to the gaming world before the world was even ready in that Blu-ray drive. They are looking past the Xbox total sells numbers and heading straight for the Wii's now.

I have two Wii's systems still, lol. Got one each for my daughters. So there keepers.

Yay for all the great games like... And... Wait a minute...

Yes the Wii has crap for games. With the exception being the ones made by Nintendo. I personally think that it's a bad idea for a game like... (Place random bad wii game here. If you can not pick one just google "Wii games" and place any one of your search results here.) To be ported to the PS3. Like some of the people commenting before me said, it will lower the quallity of the games on the PS3.

Don't believe me? Sonic unleashed got a 3.8 on the 360 and ps3 on IGN, and the Wii version got a 7.2. Was this because Sega made the game better on the wii? Or does the wii's games suck so bad the Nintendo team gave it a higher score because the other games they play suck? You decide, I personally choose option two.
