Thanks for your thoughts. I don't know about the camera based motion control. At a sports like baseball there is a fair amount of variation on how people swing the bat. Some people scrunch down to squeeze the strike zone, some whirl the bat before swinging, some turn their head to watch the ball, etc. A game where you move like tennis I just can't see working at all. How big a room would be needed? Imagine acting out football with camera based motion control ... you are the linebacker ... Sony should have bought Nintendo in 1992. How much is Mario worth now?
Me too. Much of the success of the Wii is related to Shigeru Miyamoto because of the creative use he has made of motion control. Even if Msft had not passed up motion control when it was offered, they would have been unable to come up the games that have made it a hit. Sony seems just as unable to move into a new type of controller. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shigeru_Miyamoto
