The lights are on
Rocksteady Studios' Sefton Hill shares his thoughts on the upcoming technology from Sony and Microsoft.When we visited Rocksteady for our Batman: Arkham City cover story, everyone had just returned from E3 where Move, Kinect, and 3D were the big talk of the show. While Hill wouldn't say one way or the other if the upcoming Batman sequel would include any of these features, he did offer his opinion on all of the technologies: 3D GAMING:"I think 3D is cool - I don’t think we’re announcing or saying anything about it at the moment - but I think that it’s interesting for games."MOVE AND KINECT:"My own personal opinion is that I think they’re both interesting. I think Move might be a bit more applicable for hardcore gamers from what I’ve seen mainly because I can play it lazing on my sofa -- my number one requirement. I think Kinect seems interesting. I’d like to see more games for it definitely. They haven’t really shown too much so I’d like to see what I’m actually going to be able to play with it apart from Dance Central. "I think Move will integrate quite cleanly with a lot of existing titles like Resident Evil 5 where they’re doing patches and stuff like that. It’s definitely an interesting area. How that relates to Batman, who knows? But those are for quite a different experience as well, so i don’t think they’re going to supercede existing games. That’s going to be a totally different experience. "Certainly Kinect as well. You buy those games. You play your Kinect experience. You’re not going to be doing that instead of playing your hardcore games, your Call of Duty or whatever. I don’t see that these games are sort of stepping on that. I think it’s another audience that they’re bringing in myself."

he has a good point
You Read my mind
i don't think that they should do anything with motion control than what they are already doing personally. like the patches to games, and stuff like that. please no motiobat! please! (if you didn't understand that it is motion and bat put together, you see my genius)
That's a good assessment, his perspective makes sense. These peripherals are not replacements, just merely additional components to the original intentions for each system. Well played sir...
lazing on the couch no
lazing in my beanbag.....yes
You cannot compare kinect with the move because for one thing you dont need a controller to play anything. Like what this guy said, they both trigger different audiences meaning; kinect more towards the g-rated family surface type of stuff. And the "Move" (which i still think till this day, that its a copycat ala wiimote) is more towards the hardcore fans such as myself. I'd like to play games like resident evil or maybe make the next elderscrolls...man that would kik az lol

I can totally see using the Move for Batman. Throwing boomerangs, shooting your grapling with point and aim, and breaking the enemy's neck like the way you headbutt in THE FIGHT would all be fun with this tech.
I would like the option to sit down or be more active. I don't need to be lazy to comfortably play a hardcore game.
I do agree with the statements regarding the Move and Kinect. I think the Move is far more appealing to Harcourt gamers. Kinect has had too many issues and bad press to be impressive from its release.
