Move Is Not a Peripheral Killer, says Activision Boss
Posted by James Newton
Move can become a huge number of in-game items – not shovels or whips though, remember – but that doesn't mean Activision boss Bobby Kotick is worried it spells the end for his company's wide array of plastic gameplay enhancers.
Speaking to Edge Online, Kotick said that although Move offers some fantastic experiences it can't compete with the feeling of holding a musical instrument:
If the fantasy is to unleash your inner rock star, you need a guitar, or you need a mic, or a DJ booth.
That's all well and good, but considering the versatility of Move – it's already been a series of rackets, a flashlight and the primary means for commanding a World War Two strategy game – Activision will have a job on its hands beating Move at its own game.
