Microsoft Announces New No-Controller Gaming System

May 24, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Microsoft, in a collaboration with Israel-based 3DV Systems, has developed a new gaming system that monitors a players movements in 3D.

The console, which Microsoft competes with technology like the Sony EyeToy, will allow a player to use real virtual movements to perform gaming tasks in 3-D, which they hope will allow them to gain an edge over the Wii system, which has taken the gaming world by storm.

“By taking away the controls altogether, the game becomes so easy to operate that even your grandmother can master it,” an anonymous source working on the console told British paper the Telegraph.

The system has been developed, and will be launched at the E3 conference in June.

    Um…no.

    First of all, it’s not a new console, it’s a camera peripheral for the XBox 360, a system which already exists. Second, it’s not called the Sony EyeToy. That product already exists and is made by Microsoft’s competitor, Sony.

    Poop on the no controller system. I love Microsoft and Xbox and all they’ve done with gaming but if they go through with this it will be a huge mistake.
    Gamers want a controller. Gamers need a controller.

    I think the limitations of a controller will be what does make this system a hit.

    Think about this – what if they included RPG games where you can swing your own sword make your own jumps etc… I would get it in a heart beat if they took it all the way.

    But I can’t see myself forking over the money for little bowling games. i think for this to be a success they are going to have to amp up the games as well.
