Richard Marks Dreams of a Gory Zombie Game on Move

Telekinesis and axes in Dr Marks's ideal game
Blood-letting zombiefest Left 4 Dead missed the PlayStation 3, but Sony's R&D whiz Dr Richard Marks has described his ideal undead experience for PlayStation Move and it makes quite exciting, if unsettling, reading.
In an interview with C&VG, Dr Marks went into some detail about a game where zombies can be thrown around with telekinesis before being sliced up with a range of sharp weapons or set alight with fireballs. It's really quite gory, if potentially awesome.
The game I want to see the most [with Move] is one where I'm standing up and a whole horde of zombies are attacking me. I have in one hand the ability to pick them up and throw them at each other with some kind of levitation force, and in the other hand I have a weapon, an axe, a sword - I can choose what I want.
It certainly sounds a cut above the first-person shooter gameplay of Left 4 Dead, but if your imagination doesn't run riot imagining throwing zombies into the air before carving them to pieces then perhaps gaming isn't for you.
