SCEA executive John Koller said the company is confident in the power of the PS3 Wand.
"We look at motion control as being that much more than what exist on the market," Koller told Gamepro. "The Holy Grail of gaming is placing you as the consumer into the game physically. We provide further details, people will see exactly where we're going."
Koller notes that the PS3 Wand will work with a "real wide variety" of genres. "The areas that are going to be really critical to our success will be family games, as well as shooters and sports games."
"Those are going to be the areas that really define success, because they're areas that quite honestly, I think Project Natal and Wii are going to have trouble matching, from a differentiation standpoint."
In 2010, the company will focus on three pillars: 3D gaming, Motion Controls and PSN, you can also expect a lot of firmware updates. " A lot of what you'll see in terms of changes to the PS3 are going to be done through firmware for the foreseeable future. There's a lot of features and functions we have planned there. I think that 2010 will be a big year for that," he added.
Koller then delve into the games, the exclusive lineup that separates the PS3. "Going into the back half of the year, we have a number of key launches. We haven't really announced all of them yet, but the titles that will be launching at that time are going to be very exciting.
"Some of the big franchises, as well as new IPs have new ways to game, not motion control gaming, but in other ways. It's going to be a really strong lineup."
