Future Xbox One & PS4 peripheral game features ‘can’t be gimmicky,’ says EA

There has no doubt been a push for motion control gaming for the past 3 years, especially with Kinect 2.0 coming with the new Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 already includes the Playroom to use its PlayStation Eye on. In our ongoing segment this week with EA Executive Producer Marcus Nilsson, we ask his view on the benefits that these peripherals present. This is what he had to say:

With Xbox One, it’s very excited to be able to go into the living room and it recognizes me and I’m right into the game. From a game perspective, we’re always going to use the peripherals that we think can make for a greater game experience. They’ll be different services running on these machines. Some of them will make use of those peripherals and some will not have them. It can’t be gimmicky, using these things; they need to be able to bring real value to the gameplay experience.

Whether incorporated into the games or not, motion control gaming is here to stay. Developers should certainly be able to integrate features involving the cameras, especially with Kinect 2.0. Some believe since Sony dropped the Eye from coming with the system and being required that developers would get less aggressive with the support. Only time will tell on this. Stay tuned the rest of the week for more Q&A with Marcus Nilsson
