At E3 Gaming Union sat down with Jim Scott, the CEO of UK based publisher O-Games. Scott's company brought John Daly's ProStroke Golf, an upcoming golfing game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, to the show. We asked Scott about a range of topics from using John Daly as the face of ProStroke to choosing PlayStation Move for the game's motion control. In terms of motion control, Scott believes Kinect's controller free approach presents "limitations" compared to Move.

On the subject of whether they considered Kinect for ProStroke, Scott had this to say: "The limitations for Kinect in our eyes, particularly when you're making sports games, is that you have nothing in your hand, which can make things a bit difficult. I'm not saying it's a bad system, I think it would be brilliant for certain games like fitness or family games, but when you're playing sports and you've got something physically in your hand I'm not too sure it's as good as Move."

Scott also stated his belief that "Move gives you much greater control than the Wii Motion Plus does." However, that isn't going to stop ProStroke from coming out on the Wii "next year."
