“When you give our development teams exciting new technology, it’s great to see the experiences they come up with, and that’s both in terms of new concepts and new games, but also the application of those technologies to our existing franchises”. “We are working on new games and looking at applications [for] our existing franchises.” Said Denny.

Its seems that a lot of developers are excited by the Arc and motion control and one such developer is Quantic Dream boss and main man behind the up and coming PS3 title, Heavy Rain –  David Cage.

“I am curious to see what can be done with more mature games, if it can be used to support immersion and create a new way of playing. Quantic Dream will definitely experiment with the Wand in the near future.” Said Cage.
