Shingo Takatsuka, the progenitor of the long-running Pro Evolution Soccer
series, recently had a few choice words to share with IGN
on the subject of incorporating motion control into the franchise. Though the producer of that other soccer game
has stated his indifference to motion control schemes, Takatsuka explained Konami is highly intrigued by Project Natal
and the heretofore "officially" unnamed
PlayStation Motion Controller -- intrigued to the extent that he's "looking at integrating those devices into our games very aggressively."
As we all know, soccer is the most fatiguing activity any human can participate in, so we expect that a Natal-ized version of PES
would be appropriately taxing. However, given the sport's limited employment of hands
, we'd be curious to see how Sony's motion-sensing peripheral would be utilized. There are few pieces of gaming hardware we'd outright refuse to give a fair shot, but shoe adapters
might just be beyond our capacity for humiliation.
