David Reeves, current head of Capcom Europe and former boss of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, has spoken to Eurogamer about the importance of supporting Move beyond PlayStation 3's life cycle.
I think [motion control is] the preamble to what might come in the next static consoles. There's so much investment in those systems, they'll have to use it for the next static consoles as well. Or a modification. They'll learn a lot from this.
With PlayStation Move having its origins way back in the PlayStation 2 it wouldn't be surprising for it to outlast the PS3 as it outlasted PS2, but there would undoubtedly be improvements made to the next-generation version of Move as the technology updates. Would Move replace the standard DualShock controller however, or would it simply be an alternative? Time will tell.
