Shinji Mikami Underwhelmed by Motion Controls

Recently we posted an article that lambasted both the PS Move and MS Kinect as silly motion control fads that were a waste of time and money. It would appear that gaming great Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil and director of the upcoming TPS Vanquish totally agrees with that:

“I don’t think motion controls will be in the gaming mainstream in the next ten years. When the technology gets to the point where you can just flick your eyeballs around and the computer can pick it up, you won’t need a controller anymore. Obviously it’s going to take a while to get there.”

I don’t see how he could have called them a gimmick any kinder. Perhaps we dont have to get there at all Mikami-san. Long live the controller. Vanquish comes out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 19th. Currently (thankfully) there is no news of motion control support for the title. Check out our impressions of the game, here.
