Sony won’t tolerate Wii to Move ports
We are going to be brutally honest - we are extremely excited about the PlayStation Move here at Attitude Towers, but there is a little voice in the back of our head that tells us to burn things. Behind that voice however is a more niggling one, playing on one of our fears – that the Move will be nothing more than a home to shoddy Wii ports.
Can Sony brush aside that fear?
Well they are certainly talking the talk. SCEA’s publisher relations boss Rob Dyer has now publically commented on the fact that lazy Wii ports will not be tolerated by Sony, and that they will be working to stop a mad rush of shovelware onto the system.
“We’ll do everything we can, whether it’s up-res, add trophies, and do things and make it network-only so you don’t see it on a disc, but at the same time, we don’t have to approve it if we don’t want to go down that path.
If it’s day and date, we’ll work with them on it. If it’s a port, then we’ll move it a step, to the network. Unless it’s something that they’ve done an incredible amount of adjusting… We want to be a one-to-one experience.
The Wii doesn’t have a camera. We’ve got a camera. Use that camera, implement that in there. A lot of these guys don’t want to. They just want to use the accelerometer and say, well… No. Not gonna happen. It doesn’t work that way. Put the camera in there, make it work with that, get your trophies, up-res is, put some more content in, come on down.”
Big words – and ones we hope Sony backs up with action. Saying that though, some of the Move games already shown are dangerously close to the type of games Sony is saying they will be putting a stop too.
What do you think about Wii ports – yay or nay?
