Motion Gaming... The Future?


I heard a rumor stating that the next Microsoft console will be 100% controller free. This means that motion gaming will be a thing of the future via Kinect. What do you gamers think about that? Are we that far into the next generation that youd be willing to give up controller-based gaming?

Ill be ready to drop my controller when I can play in something like Stark Trek or Tron. Playing with a controller has dominated the last forty-something years in the business. What if motion gaming took over? To me, it would be something if we could switch over to motion gaming, but wed have to faze the controller out. It seems as though everyone wants to have some type of motion capability in their games from Forza 4 (Kinect) to Tiger Woods 12 (PS Move), and even in upcoming games like Metal Gear Solid Rising and Mass Effect 3.

Maybe its not just a bandwagon anymore like I originally thought it would be. Perhaps its the future of gaming, but how should developers move forward? From the games that have been fitted with motion control, do you think gaming is taking a step into the future or taking a turn for the worse? Thoughts, opinions?

Baweepgranaweepminibon! I'm Vernon and I love Mass Effect with a passion that is only overcome by my love of beautiful women... especially mine. I love writing and I love video games, so I thought it'd be a good idea to combine the two into a little video game blog thingy called Get Tuitt. It's a blog I started a while back, but the name is a little more recent. My last name is Tuitt, so it kinda stuck with me. By the way, hate all you want, but it works out perfectly! I post my opinions on certain happenings in the gaming industry, and try to see as many sides to any given situation. However, I will always end up on one side... my side... the right one.

I got into gaming at a young age when my father introduced me to the NES, and my love for gaming grew from there. I love game like Uncharted, Halo, God of War, NCAA, Jak and Daxter, LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth, Prince of Persia, and the best one of them all... MASS EFFECT! You should probably know that I'm obsessively waiting for the third installment and with gobble up any news I hear.

Anyway, love it or hate, I'm gonna let my writing thang shine. Comment, rant, and pass the word along... and remember that when you can't do it, Get Tuitt! Also, if anyone knows how to unlock true biotic potential in humans, please let me know. I'm trying to get my mom to learn Warp.... ;-)
