Forget the motion-sensitive remote Microsoft, fix X-Box 360!

50°
337w ago - By now, the word has trickled into every crack and corner of the Internet that Microsoft is developing a motion-sensitive wand controller for its Xbox 360 console, and that the prototype design fairly resembles the wand available for Nintendo Wii.

Since MTV spilled the rumor Monday, dozens of publications have jumped on the story and twisted it into a balloon animal for their own purposes. Yahoo Tech thinks any wand remote built years after Xbox's debut would rate as little more than a second-rate accessory. NintendoRevolution thinks it's an April Fool's joke. PS3 says it's a sign that Microsoft really does care about casual gaming despite the company's huge effort to command the high-end gaming market.

MTV has pinned the rumor to an "unnamed source" who claims to have been briefed on Microsoft's plans. The source says Microsoft's secret controller will do much more than the Wiimote, including interact with the Xbox Live Vision Camera, and that "several developers, speaking on background" confirmed the source's claim.

To quote: Collider: So this is the question that every fan...I'm asking this for every fan...what are you going to do to finally make a kick-ass video game movie?

Mike De Luca: I mean, hopefully not screw it up. For me adapting a video game is just like adapting a book or a play or any other...whenever you're adapting from another medium for film you try to take into account what you need to do to make it a movie. With books it's how you compensate for not being inside a character's head and with video games I think what you have to compensate for is the loss of interactivity, you know.

What makes video games fun is that you get to be the character and you're sitting there ruling the universe and it's a really first person interactive experience. When you're in your theatre seat, you're...
