A job posting for a new Microsoft studio has added further weight to the rumors that the company is working on motion controls for the 360
What do Nintendo and Sony have that Microsoft doesn't? Well, aside from Japanese headquarters and company names with the letter 'n' in them, the answer is motion-sensitive controls for their console. But is all that about to change?
With E3 lurking just around the corner, one of the most popular rumors doing the rounds on the net is that Microsoft will announce a new, motion-sensitive controller for the Xbox 360. That rumor got a further shot in the arm with a recent job listing at Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices division.
The listing reads:
Are you interested in shipping innovative games that will change the way people play? If so, we want you to join our team to work on an amazing next-generation project, built from the ground up, in Microsoft Game Studios. We are building a NEW GAME STUDIO from the ground up that will revolutionize both WHAT you play and HOW you play. You have the chance to get in on the ground floor and work with professionals responsible for some of the industry's greatest innovations to date. (Emphasis in the original.)
Now, to be fair, they might not be talking about motion-controls, but it's hard to think of anything else they could mean... unless it's something really out there like telepathy...
Oh My God! It's Telepathy! Flee the city!
