Despite the label announcing Kinect support for all future titles — with absolutely nothing to show, we might add — the FIFA team will not be adding functionality for Sony's motion controller into its premium football franchise. At least not for now, anyway.
"We have not focused on PS Move for FIFA, but that's not to say we won't," senior vice president Andrew Wilson explained to Eurogamer.
"There have been different problems we're solving as we go through the process. That's not one we've sought to solve. We've focused a lot with PS Move with Tiger, and we've looked at other sports where it seems a natural fit.
"What we learnt coming through the Wii development cycle is to use the controller to add value, and if the controller doesn't add value, don't use it.
"Far be it for me to say the Move controller is right or wrong for FIFA. We've not seen it to add value today. But it's only one person that comes and says, 'I've got a great idea.'"
Just to be snarky gits, we will add that the Wii Remote works exceptionally well in the Pro Evolution Soccer games on Nintendo's platform. But yes, we do agree with what Wilson's saying. Obviously there's a touch of hypocrisy after the Kinect announcement though. Exactly what value does Kinect add to the FIFA experience? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
