Sony: Move Better Than Mouse for Real Time Strategy Games

Sony can’t stop pimping Move in the strangest ways. Now they’re claiming that Move is better than a computer mouse for.

According to Richard Marks:

“It could play a PC RTS really well, but I think there is modifications on the RTS genre that will be really good with. I play a lot of RTS games but the way I think about it is you have a landscape below you with all the troops, and imagine you’re the general and you just want to look out over your troops and select guys – tell them to attack there. You really feel like this general or god-like person that can manipulate huge armies.

I think that with Move would feel way better than a mouse for that, for example, and doing things that require some 3D information is much better with Move. The RTS genre has been designed not to require any 3D information, but having that extra dimension and all the angle data that we have too is also very interesting.”

I’d love to see South Korean professional Starcraft players trying to play with a Wii remote or Move controller.

Say what you want about Microsoft – at least they’re not shoehorning Kinect into Halo: Reach and Gears of War 3 and claiming it will replace keyboard and mouse for shooters.
