Nabs "most immersive game controller" gong
We know Move works great, you know Move works great, and now Sony's controller has been honoured with an award in Popular Science magazine's "Best of What's New 2010" issue.
Honoured in the always hotly-contested Home Entertainment category, Move was called the "most immersive game controller", with the editors saying:
Sony’s Move is the first motion-capture game system accurate enough to attract the hardcore gamers who consider the Wii and Microsoft Kinect to be kids’ stuff. A camera near the TV tracks a glowing sphere on top of a wand to follow a player’s horizontal and vertical movement, as well as the distance from the screen, while accelerometers and gyroscopes sense rotation. All this translates into the ability to take out zombies in Resident Evil with dead-on accuracy.
All that technology, all those millions of man hours of research, all to win an award for most accurate zombie headshot tool. What a wonderful world we live in.
