Konami Plans to Tackle New Motion Controls Aggressively

Fans of Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series can expect to see the franchise get much more active in their future PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 installments, as Konami plans to integrate Project Natal and Sony’s Wand into the series’ gameplay. And Konami may not be stopping there.

“Up until 2009 we believed all the platforms should have the same controls and features,” said Producer Shingo ‘Seabass’ Takatsuka at the European Championships in Nice. “That’s no longer the case, because there are specific controllers for different machines, what with Natal and the PlayStation motion sensor system. I cannot say much, but I can say we are looking at integrating those devices into our games very aggressively.”

How these controls will be integrated into PES 2011– or other Konami brands– remains to be seen. Hopefully we will at least see better results than Castlevania Judgment.
