Notch Teases Minecraft PS3 With PlayStation Move Support
Posted by Christopher Ingram
A wolf in sheep’s clothing?
The surprise announcement at this year's E3 that the massively successful game Minecraft is coming to Kinect instantly got us thinking; wouldn’t PlayStation Move be a perfect fit too? Move launch title Tumble proved the controller could easily select objects and manoeuvre them in a 3D environment with extreme precision, and navigating menus with an on-screen cursor using Move is a given success if implemented correctly. So shouldn’t Minecraft come to PS3 with Move support as well?
Well, a recent IGN interview with Minecraft’s creator Markus “Notch” Persson contained a strange answer when he was asked if the game would also make the transition to the PS3:
I have been instructed not to reply to this question, so here's a picture of a sheep instead:
Is it possible that this sheep was in fact drawn using the PlayStation Move in Minecraft? We think it’s possible, as it would be difficult to draw this with an analogue stick instead, but of course it could just be a picture of a sheep used to deflect the question.
What do you think — is this a morsel of proof that Minecraft could eventually land on the PS3 and feature Move controls? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
