Beyond's producer tells us why the game won’t support PS Move

Beyond: Two Souls will not feature Move control, despite the functionality being added to Quantic Dream’s previous game, Heavy Rain. Speaking with GamesRadar at a preview event in Paris, Guillaume de Fondaumiere, Executive Producer, said:

“The thing is that we’ve done Heavy Rain and we adapted the gameplay to the Move controller. Personally I liked it very much. But on the other hand, I didn’t see a huge evolution from a positive standpoint. I think that with the DualShock we can do really everything. What we did on Heavy Rain already and what we continue to do on Beyond is really use the SIXAXIS functionality of the DualShock, which most developers don’t.”

Gesturing to illustrate a tilt action, he continued: “They use the SIXAXIS functionality of the Move controller. Kind of. So since we are using the movement features of the DualShock already, we don’t see a need to port that to Move.”

Be sure to check out our full, spoiler-free preview of Beyond: Two Souls and look out for more on the game very soon.

    Cause it sucks ass, the PS Move is moronic and looks like shit.

    As someone who doesn't have a PS3, I had thought that SIXAXIS was removed when they added DualShock back in like a year after launch when everyone hated SIXAXIS. If they've been putting SIXAXIS in the DualShocks, that has to have been the biggest waste of money.

    Short Version: Move is redundant, irrelevant and nobody likes it. Glad we got out of the way! Now let's make sure Sony hears that message loud and clear, shall we? : D

    Tried the move with the shooting attachment on Killzone 3, Resistance 3, and Future soldier. Personally, I couldn't get use to the idea of physically turning my body to turn the games characters left or right. Seemed to weird.

    My point precisely. Not to mention, even then, why would you want to use it if you can do all of that quicker and with far better precision with the controller?
