Shinji Mikami: Motion Control Not Mainstream For 10 Years

By Colin Tan on September 2, 2010, 9:27PM EDT

Shinji Mikami, father of Resident Evil, pioneer of the over-the-shoulder view and maker of upcoming third person shooter, Vanquish, isn't quite satisfied with the current tech that Move or Kinect offers.

Speaking with UK magazine PSM3, Mikami says he doesn't expect such technology to have a real impact for a very long time.

"I don't think motion controls will be in the gaming mainstream in the next ten years.

"When the technology gets to the point where you can just flick your eyeballs around and the computer can pick it up, you won't need a controller anymore. Obviously it's going to take a while to get there/"

Before you get all hung up on the audacity of eyeball controlled games, that was likely just an example of the potential precision and accuracy that he would like to reach in regards to motion technology.

Wouldn't that be something?
