I agree with most people that MS are a bit awful at supporting their peripherals (i too am a vision owner) but MS also are the best at writing APIs and the XBOX has an awesome update system.

Think of the games that could receive updates and be improved by a wagglewand controller... Command and conquer for instance - wouldnt take much to add the mouse like support and would probably massively improve the playability (but then again - its EA, lets not get our hopes up too much)

The other thing is you have to realise the number of games that we'd get ported from the wii... its gotta be worth it for that - Wii style control but without last gen graphics - best of both worlds.

Its bound to happen - mostly because ive only just got my wii and things like that always happen to me!

I doubt you would see any games ported from the Wii. The PS3 has had motion control since launch, have you seen any Wii ports on it?

I voted yes for some reason.

But I own a ps3 and I forgot that it had Six-Axis in the controller.... the only time I ever use it is when the game forces you to.

I don't see the point. it wouldn't help any games I currently play, and any new games would just use it as a gimik, just like PS3 and Wii...

Yeah, there definitely should have been a "maybe... depends on the games" option in the poll. That seems like the most common answer. If there was a GOOD* gun attachment then yeah it would definitely be worth it, but I don't see it being that useful otherwise.

* By GOOD I mean a full sized rifle or something similar not a cheesy-ass lookin thing like the wii zapper. That thing blows.

EDIT: I just had a cool idea: A handgun for one hand and instead of a nunchuck thing there could be a grenade for the other hand. The Handle on the grenade could be an anolog trigger... that'd be sweet. If they made it look like the Halo weapons they'd sell millions.

i voted yes, and id like to explain why

while there arent any current games out yet that would utilize this feature, future games could incorporate it without much trouble.

and yes the wii has some pretty crazy glitches but with a multibillion dollar corporation such as microsoft im sure they could fix all of the kinks out of the system

but who knows...

I vote no. I game to relax. Sitting down, leaning back. Not standing up with arms flailing around. My opinion is that since the Wii is dominating the market, Microsoft is trying to steal some of the Wii's thunder. It won't happen though. People would rather spend $250 on a machine dedicated to motion sensing, than spend $350-$450 for a machine that MIGHT half-heartedly support motion sensing. I don't own a PS3, but to my knowledge most games don't really take advantage of Six-Axis. Because of broader appeal, lower price point & a "simple" interface (appealling to non-gamers) M$ & Sony won't catch up. It's a battle for 2nd place. Microsoft should stick to what it knows in order to fend Sony off, and secure 2nd place. 2nd place isn't a bad spot to be in, given the situation.

sleeping.gif Yawn... no point in a motion controller, unless there are games that support it. The existing crop of X360 and XBLA games are designed and optimized for the standard gamepad, so there's no point in a motion controller for those.

All in all, a useless niche add-on that will not get the software support necessary to make it worth getting.

I would buy one, but only if they would release 2-3 games with it, that fully support it. Also, I am curious how would it look like, like a wii mote or how that is called, a nunchak, or plain and simple like the old controler, with motion sensors...

and what if M$ would buy rights to create a wii emulator for the 360??? then I would surely buy one.... but that will never going to hapen so... sad.gif

For gods sake no! It sucks, i've seen crazy jap's @ youtube.com going crazy wild with their Wii's and i thought that if i wanted to play a game, i would like to relax while playing. Not be making all these movments with the controller. It makes no sence!

IchiKyuo had an opinion!

I am the 664th person to say no. I may as well get flamed but I long for the day where I can plug in a mouse n keyboard in without having to buy an xfps sniper thingy as what I have seen seem like a lot of faffing about to get it working.

The PS3 (sorry for saying that bad word here) has offered mouse n kb support for UT3 and Resistance FoM. Some guff about being more accurate and being unfair to players who use the pad. I think there is certain games that the pad is by far the best controller but for the love of god mouse n kb rocks on FPS games but a country mile.

While I am on about controllers wtf did Logitech make a "multi-format" g25 racing wheel that works with Sony PS2/3 and the PC and not the 360. What kind of donut in Logitech thought that would be "multi format"

There I have had my rant. Now let the flaming begin
