Ubisoft: Move, Kinect not life extenders

Not everyone is a subscriber to Sony and Microsoft’s company lines of Move and Kinect being able to extend their respective consoles’ lifecycles. One of those is Ubisoft’s European MD Alain Corre; “I don’t think so, no,” he said when asked if the motion add-ons will be able to extend the current generation beyond another 2 years.

Corre sees the devices as “a good extension of the lifecycle for a certain length of time,” as well as “a good way to capture some consumers they didn’t have on the casual side,” but doesn’t believe they’ll prevent the companies from releasing new machines in the next five years.

The publisher in fact expects that both platform holders are already developing new technology.
