Ninja Theory not interested in motion controllers

The UK developer is enslaved by old-fashion control devices.

With Move available at retail and Kinect due next month, many developers have eagerly begun adopting motion controls to their titles in an effort to cash in on the craze started by Nintendo's innovative console, the Wii.

Not the Cambridge-based Ninja Theory, though. According to Tameem Antoniades, the studio's chief designer, Ninja Theory doesn't even have any development kits for the devices.

"At the moment, no, I don't have particular interest in [motion controllers], not until I see what they can do," he admitted to Eurogamer. "But we haven't actually got dev kits or anything like that," he added.

Ninja Theory's latest game is the multi-format title Enslaved, which is published by Namco Bandai. While the studio is waiting to see how Enslaved performs at retail, Antoniades did tell Eurogamer that Ninja Theory would love to do a sequel to it, if the opportunity arose.
