Hardcore gamers seem to have no interest in the new peripheral while family gamers are excited to get their hands on it. Personally, I’m not itching to get my hands on it. It’s other item that will be nestled under my Christmas tree.
But I am excited that the Xbox 360 community will grow with the new motion controller. While I assume the usual FPS and other M-rated games will stay away from using motion control many games designed for children and families will bring in new users.
Microsoft has been missing out for the most part when it comes to the young children. Wii has been ruling that market for some time. It’s about time Microsoft get in on that.
So to the hardcore gamers who have no interest, don’t buy it. But the gaming industry is a business and Microsoft has been missing out. Can’t blame them for chasing the dollar and jumping on the motion control bandwagon.
