Konami Looking To Add Motion Control To PS3, 360 Games

Konami Looking To Add Motion Control To PS3, 360 Games

Add Konami to the list of developers getting on board with Microsoft’s Project Natal and Sony’s unnamed(?) motion controller, at least for the Pro Evo soccer simulation series.

According to a report from IGN, series lead Shingo ‘Seabass’ Takatsuka has said that the Pro Evo team is “looking at integrating those devices into our games very aggressively”. We doubt they’re the only ones at Konami HQ getting up to speed on the Wii Remote’s pair of competitors.

While it could make headers in Pro Evo a dangerous prospect, we can see it working in other Konami titles. Just imagine being able to immerse yourself in a cardboard box in real life, then see Solid Snake do the exact same thing! Or imagine what Koji Igarashi could do with a motion controlled Castlevania.

I’m guessing a vampire slaying driving game.

    I’d like to see someone use a motion controller to do some Street Fighter moves…
