With Sony launching their new PlayStation 3 motion controls this year, they’ll probably want to use a few of their bigger franchises to make the peripheral(s) more appealing to the consumer. One game that will not be joining that line-up however appears to be the “assured” Uncharted 3.
“We really don’t have any interest in using the motion control to do a third-person action game,” Uncharted developer Naughty Dog’s co-president Evan Wells told G4 recently.
Wells thinks Nintendo’s Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are among the best experiences this generation has brought forth and believes a similar approach — developing games from the ground up, not changing them, for the new controller — is the way Naughty Dog would want to go. “If we were going to make a motion controller game, I think we’d want to tackle it from the bottom up and make sure that we were designing the game around the motion control, the way the best Wii games are designed.”
