Sony: Kinect-style experience 'pretty cumbersome'

R&D guru Dr. Richard Marks says magical feeling "wears off pretty quickly"

Sony Computer Entertainment R&D guru Dr. Richard Marks isn't a big fan of the type of controller-free experience Kinect offers.

"I totally agree that there is this magical feeling with using your hands to select something," Marks told the New York Times as part of a Kinect feature.

"But that feeling wears off pretty quickly, and it becomes a pretty cumbersome way to do things," added the man behind EyeToy and PS Move.


According to the report, Sony considered eliminating the need for controllers too, but it came to the conclusion that gamers wouldn't find the experience satisfactory.

Marks gave us a special glimpse into the technical capabilities of Move back in July.
