God of War III in E3 ’09: lots of footage, motion control to be revealed
What would a GoW game be like without having to mash Square + Square + Triangle for that ever-useful Plume of Prometheus combo, eh? Maybe God of War III will have us just tilt the SIXAXIS one way or another? Whatever the case is, it’s no secret that Kratos will grace this year’s E3 with his presence. And during that event, we’ll get lots of footage and more details – especially about controls. While the footage part is to be expected, what gives me pause here is the bit about motion control…
Because mashing Square + Square + Triangle isn’t enough for control freaks
It’s no secret that Kratos will grace this year’s E3 with his presence. Already, Sony‘s even made an announcement about an announcement: they’ll be revealing God of War III‘s release date during the event. But what else will we get to see (or hear) about Kratos’ trek up Olympus?
According to The Bitbag, we’ll get lots of footage and more details – especially about controls. Says one Torrence Davis of The Bitbag:
An insider at Sony has not only confirmed that there will be tons of God Of War 3 footage at E3, but also hinted that Sony fans will be getting some motion controls very soon.
While the footage part is to be expected, what gives me pause here is the bit about motion control. Back in February, it was revealed that the dev team at SCE Santa Monica said they didn’t want to put in tilt-sensing controls because they couldn’t figure out a way to incorporate it seamlessly. Doing so would have made it look “forced or gimmicky.”
Ah well, whatever the case is, E3 is just around the corner now. We’ll find out for sure come early June.
