Forget Start the Party. PlayStation Move creator talks up motion-controlled zombie massacre game

Having hada lot of hands-on timewith it, we know this to be true, but if you need any firther evidence, then take the recent aspirational splurge of Dr. Richard Marks. Neither an American singer/song-writer nor affiliated with Communism or gross illegal marijuana usage, Marks is the boffin who invented Move's motion sensing tech in the first place, and ye gods, does he have a great idea for an utterly brutal game.

When asked recently byCVGabout the potential of Move for hardcore gamers, Marks detailed his dream game:

"The game I want to see is the most [with Move] is one where I'm standing up and a whole horde of zombies are attacking me. I have in one hand the ability to pick them up and throw them at each other with some kind of levitation force, and in the other hand I have a weapon, an axe, a sword - I can choose what I want.

"I can throw it at them, pull them towards me and chop their heads off, I can switch to a fireball spell and affect an area like that. I want to feel like that when I'm controlling. We've seen that kind of capability, it takes some work to build that into a game, of course, but that's what I want to play."

A first-person zombie massacre with motion-controlled extreme corpse-smashing? We're in. Sony, sign us up now. In fact, scratch that, sign someone up to make it now, then sign us up to play it. Unless of course, you already have, and this is part of some big elaborate tease. Now you wouldn't be doing anything as sneaky as that would you?
