Ubisoft boss “so happy” with PS3 controller

Microsoft executives may be lining up to heap criticism on it, but Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot has expressed his delight with the PlayStation 3 controller, pledging strong support from the third-party giant for Sony's controversial motion-sensing fun

Microsoft executives may be lining up to heap criticism on it, but Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot has expressed his delight with the PlayStation 3 controller, pledging strong support from the third-party giant for Sony's controversial motion-sensing functionality.

Guillemot's comments came in an exclusive interview with Eurogamer TV, due to be broadcast soon, with the publisher boss revealing: âWe were so happy to see that Sony was taking that direction - we think it will help to have a better experience so we are going to use that a lot.â

Guillemot did not specify any PS3 projects which would incorporate motion-sensing - but given Sony's announcement appeared to come as a genuine surprise to most of the games industry, any supportive products are likely to be some way off.

Ubisoft's vocal support for the Sony initiative comes after the French publisher also proved itself at E3 as one of the leading third-party supporters of Nintendo's own motion-based technology for its Wii system, with titles including Red Steel and Rayman Raving Rabbids on show.
