Future of FPS games lies with motion controls says Guerilla Games
Guerilla Games is convinced that motion controls are definitely the way forward for first-person shooters.
The Dutch studio has recently put the finishing touches to Killzone 3 and their experiences with adding Move compatibility to the game have convinced them that FPS games can evolve using motion controls.
Killzone 3's lead programmer Tommy de Roos said: "I think, as this develops, in a few years most of the first-person-shooters will be played like this. I really think so. Maybe not the Move specifically but a pointing controller like this."
He continued: "I think [gamers are] opening up to it. At the beginning there was a lot of reluctance but I know that a few of them picked it up, they tried it and they were actually quite surprised at how well it worked and the extra dimension it gives you. You lose some of the accuracy when rotating, that becomes more difficult. But you make up for that by being able to point anywhere on the screen and send your bullets flying there. So it's a trade-off and a lot of hardcore gamers are seeing that and actually some of them are starting to prefer playing with the Move."
