Red Steel 2 “could work fantastically” well with PlayStation Motion Control


When Ubisofts Red Steel came out for the Wii it met mixed reviews, even though the concept seemed perfect for demonstrating the Wii’s motion control, it didn’t quite reach the expectations because of some clunky controls, poor story and some bugs and glitches thrown in as well. But the game did show potential and now with Red Steel 2 around the corner things are looking good, hopefully for Ubisoft this could be what Assassins Creed 2 was for Assassins Creed 1, a huge “what-should-of-been” improvement.

Now when i was reading about Red Steel 2 i was thinking to myself how this would be an ideal game for the PlayStation Motion Control later this year. The games creative director, Jason Vandenberghe, seems to agree when he was speaking with VideoGamesDaily:

“I think it could work fantastically with the Sony wand. With this kind of game you need a thumbstick, that’s the only real constraint. For walking around at least, I haven’t seen a solution.

“Microsoft may come forward and show me something I haven’t seen before, which makes me understand how you can play a first-person action game like this that requires this intense finesse and accuracy in your motion, and not have a controller in your hand of some kind.

“But I think we need to have a thumbstick. I think this is probably a more natural fit for the Sony side of things right now, but I don’t think Microsoft is showing all of its cards right now either.”

The game’s out for Wii on March 23 in the US and March 26 in the UK. But lets hope we see it for the, still unnamed, PlayStation Motion Control which is due for release by the end of the year.
