Microsoft Dismisses Motion-Control Rumors

Microsoft Game Studios Creative Director Ken Lobb’s palm-to-face moment: When he said “you twist the controller around and it’ll move different things in [Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts].” Of course, rumor mongers immediately went on a frenzy, speculating that Microsoft is developing a Wii-mote like controller.

Microsoft denies the rumors of a new motion-sensitive 360 controller in development, stating that, “Ken’s comment is in reference to rotating the left analog stick while hitting the X-button to move different things in the game.” Ah, so that explains the whole twist the controller around part? He meant the left controller analog stick, not the right controller analog stick, right?

It’s cool, we’ll all find out starting next Monday with our E3 2008 coverage.
