Sony Boss Admits Move Games Are “Not So Great”

The UK Vice President of Sony confesses Playstation Move has a way to go.

Fergal Gara, the Vice President and Managing Director for Sony UK, has said in an interview with Official Playstation Magazine that the software for Playstation Move wasn’t as good as it could have been, despite the Move itself being “great tech”.

He explained that:

“it’s better suited towards the casual market, certainly, but we also are pretty clear that we could have done a better job on the titles we’ve had and we’ve brought to market for the PlayStation Move. As you’ve said, great tech, probably not so great applications so far”.

However, he added that “having seen what’s forthcoming gives me great hope that we can do a better job with Move”, and that the technology was “still being worked on”.

I can’t imagine what he’s talking about. Surely everyone knows that The Shoot and The Fight are modern classics, and games like Heavy Rain and Killzone 3 were made immeasurably better with Move controls? OK, I’ll stop being sarcastic now and just say in Move’s defense that it was always the unfortunate middle child of the motion control family. It came in after the novelty of the Wii had worn off and had none of Kinect’s Minority Report-esque futuristic gadgetry (which, incidentally, hasn’t been put to much good use either). Also, it still looks like some kind of sinister sex aid from outer space.

The upcoming game Sorcery - which will utilize motion controls and is set to be released on May 22nd – could be the game to bring out some of Move’s potential.
