- EA CEO John Riccitiello
said in an interview with industry gamers that Sony's motion controller
will be more accessible for developers than Project Natal.
To quote: "a great bridge technology," that provides users with an brand new experience but one that "doesn't require quite the leap of faith that Natal does."
Of Natal, Riccitiello spoke about potential development: "It's certainly very compelling for a number of game concepts I've got in my mind and my teams are working on," he said.
"I think the challenges around it is that there's a lot to be worked out - it's not something consumers have interacted with before."
"Providing users with an experience that's unlike what they've used previously, but at the same time, "it doesn't require quite the leap of faith that Natal does."
At this point, though, all we're seeing is a technical demo, and so we don't have anywhere as great an idea of how the technology will play out as we do with Project Natal."
Either way both Microsoft and Sony are out to take the Wii's motion controller dominance away. So Wii needs to watch out if they want to stay on top.
