Designers believe E3 was a taste of the future
Speaking with Japanese weekly Famitsu (thanks 1UP) Grasshopper Manufacture's Goichi Suda, Level-5's Akihiro Hino, and Q Entertainment's Tetsuya Mizuguchi have all stated that motion control basically owned E3; and offered us a glimpse of the future.
Suda says that Natal took the show by storm, although he adds that using the device is hard convey unless you've tried it out.
"We developed No More Heroes with the Wii remote in mind, but now I want to think about games with Natal in mind. I have to ask myself, as a game designer, what new games can be done with this, what can be an interesting experience and challenge, and Im looking forward to that," the designer enthuses.
Mizuguchi, meanwhile, says "the door to the future" has been opened, adding "It's not a shift from 2D to 3D or in the number of polygons, but it's games trying to open up an entirely new door. I thought it would take longer, but it's happening faster than I expected."
