Tretton: PS3 Motion Controller Might Be Back-Compatible
Last week at Sony’s E3 press conference, the company unveiled a motion controller for the PlayStation 3. This week, Sony’s President and CEO of SCEA said that the motion controller just might be backwards compatible with older PlayStation 3 games.
When asked in an interview with CNBC reporter Chris Morris if updates to existing games would be coming out to make them compatible with the new motion control technology, Jack Tretton responded that he “think that’s absolutely conceivable.”
“I think our [motion] controller can be used with every game that’s on the system now — and every game we’re working on,” Tretton continued.
Tretton said he believed that the motion control technology that the PlayStation 3 will have is superior to that of Nintendo’s Wii.
“Personally, it’s very difficult for me to perceive ‘God of War 3’ being played with the Wii controller,” Tretton said. “It’s a different experience that doesn’t lend itself to certain types of games.”
My question is......how? What do you think about Tretton's proposal? Do you think it is possible? If so, would you try it out? Discuss please.
