Until Dawn, the fascinating teen horror slasher from Supermassive Games, may not need a PlayStation Move motion controller after all. As spotted by the ferocious folks over at Bloody Disgusting, the title’s box art merely states that the game is ‘compatible’ with Sony’s illuminated wand, not ‘required’.
The compatible icon is typically reserved for titles such as Killzone 3 – games that are fully playable with the peripheral, but also work with the DualShock 3. Assuming that the cover is accurate – and not merely a placeholder – it would perhaps explain why the horror title has been hiding in the shadows ever since its announcement at GamesCom last year.
If true, we sincerely hope that the controls haven’t been watered down as a result. The developer originally promised a fully interactive experience, taking advantage of the accuracy of the motion controller. We've got our fingers-crossed that that will remain the case, because taking your girlfriend’s clothes off just won't feel as satisfying with an analogue stick.
