Activision Hesitant To Support The Kinect Or Move

With many folks looking forward to motion-controlled gaming via Microsoft’s Kinect or Sony’s PlayStation Move, you’d think that game developers would be scrambling to get motion-sensing games out of the door. But it turns out that Activision Blizzard is quite hesitant to support the new control methods, and its main concern lies with the fairly high prices of the Move and Kinect, thought the Kinect’s price hasn’t been officially confirmed by Microsoft. With the cost of getting the necessary Move or Kinect hardware likely to be more than $100, the publisher is quite worried about the install base of the games that support these control methods. Of course, Microsoft and Sony are going to promote those controllers quite aggressively, so hopefully the adoption rate of it will be high, and we’ll be seeing some cool games over the next few months.
