Ubisoft: Traditional controllers still key to big action games

No gesture-based Splinter Cell plans afoot

While the PS3's and Xbox 360's respective motion control technologies, unveiled at E3, may be drawing all the hype they can muster in the wake of the show - Ubisoft chief Yves Guillemot has said that big action games will still be about traditional controllers in the future.

"The current pad for gamers is giving them a lot," Guillemot replied, when asked whether Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell might one day be played 'motion-style'.

"They play for hours, so they don't want to get up and down. They don't want to be tired after five minutes. These games are about reactivity."

The big cheese was quick to add that family titles, such as Rayman, will certainly make use of motion control technology in the future.
