Sony: Move can be more precise

Big S boss says motion controller can be tweaked with firmware update

Just because it can be more precise, doesn't mean it needs to be, says Sony.

Sony has admitted that its million-selling Move motion controller can be more precise. But software engineer Anton Mikhailov has said that just because it can get more accurate, doesn’t mean it needs to be updated right now.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Mikhailov said, “We can certainly update it through firmware.The real question is, do we want to? So far we haven't had any real requests from studios to improve the accuracy. There are a couple of issues here and there we can fix, but the majority the games are not even taxing it to its full accuracy."

Mikhailov also added that gamers weren’t necessarily that keen on the controller being pinpoint accurate, as it made games tougher. He pointed to Sports Champion’ expert difficulty, which he said got rid of assists and made the game as hard as possible.

Mikhailov stated that any updates would be decided on once Sony thought there was a need for more precision. Sony has sold Move on the premise that it’s much more accurate than the Wii and its trailblazing controllers. Is it right? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
