Now I may be missing something here and please feel to correct me in the comments section if I am, but football is played with, like, your feet? That’s right isn’t it?
My knowledge of football is confined to gossip on which Big Brother contestant Ryan Giggs is boffing today* but I’m pretty sure not having PS Move as a control option in FIFA 13 is a good thing.
EA have promised they will include Kinect support in the FIFA series starting with FIFA 13 – all good, Kinect can track your legs and feet.
However, EA have felt the need to state they will not be supporting Move. Senior vice president of worldwide development, Andrew Wilson, spoke to Eurogamer:
We have not focused on PS Move for FIFA, but that’s not to say we won’t.
There have been different problems we’re solving as we go through the process. That’s not one we’ve sought to solve. We’ve focused a lot with PS Move with Tiger, and we’ve looked at other sports where it seems a natural fit.
Eurogamer then asked why Move would not be supported and Andrew said it ‘did not add value to the experience’.
Move is hand held, football is played with your feet – surely that is good reason not to use the controller? I’m struggling to see how you could use a hand held device to control a football game – unless FIFA 13 has a ‘Ryan Giggs Hotel Boff’ mini game.
