Sony: Move feels better than a mouse & keyboard

The PC is considered the home of the real-time-strategy game, with the mouse and keyboard providing uncontested control of a battlefield. Sony, however, has other ideas, claiming instead that PlayStation Move has what it takes to supplant the PC and become the new RTS king. 

"I think that PC RTS games are designed right now for the mouse and keyboard, but I think the Move can work with the more general idea of an RTS really well," says Move designer Dr. Richard Marks. "It could play a PC RTS really well, but I think there is modifications on the RTS genre that will be really good with. I play a lot of RTS games but the way I think about it is you have a landscape below you with all the troops, and imagine you're the general and you just want to look out over your troops and select guys - tell them to attack there. 

"You really feel like this general or god-like person that can manipulate huge armies. I think that with Move would feel way better than a mouse for that, for example, and doing things that require some 3D information is much better with Move. The RTS genre has been designed not to require any 3D information, but having that extra dimension and all the angle data that we have too is also very interesting."

I'll believe it when I see it, that's all I'm saying.
