Killzone 3 Dev: "Shooters Will be Played Like This in the Future"

Sees bright future
Many Move owners have been putting the controller through its paces in the Killzone 3 multiplayer beta, and developer Guerilla Games is so happy with the controller's prowess it foresees a big future for pointer-controlled first person shooters.
Principal programmer Tommy de Roos of Guerilla Games spoke to CVG about the controller's potential impact on future entries in the FPS genre, stating that many hardcore gamers have been won over by the pointer controls.
I think, as this develops, in a few years most of the first-person-shooters will be played like this. I really think so. Maybe not the Move specifically but a pointing controller like this.
If there's one genre popular enough to support its own unique, performance-enhancing controller – other than racing, naturally – it's without a doubt the first-person shooter.
Do you agree that future FPS games will be played with pointer controls instead of dual analogue sticks?
