Ubisoft Sees Promise in PS3 Controller
Could we be seeing Red Steel on the PS3 as well?

PS3 Controller

In the first account I’ve heard of, someone who is actually in the game industry (who is not part of SCE, that is) digs the PS3’s tilt-sensitive controller! And, it is none other than Ubisoft, a developer that has already pledged a great deal of support to that other motion-sensitive system.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Ubisoft President Yves Guillemot said that he is happy with the direction Sony is taking and that they intend to use the feature a lot.

While this may come as a surprise to some, it really shouldn’t. Ubisoft is one of the biggest third-party supporters of the Nintendo Wii, and the PS3’s controller only enables them to release a wider variety of cross platform games (in addition to the traditional sort of games that we would have seen on the Xbox 360 and PS3 anyways). Even though the two controllers are vastly different, this could come as quite a blow to Nintendo, as a lot more of their exclusive titles could be reworked for the PS3 with similar features.

Since Red Steel was announced as Wii exclusive, I doubt we’ll see it make the jump.  But one game that is bound to make use of the controller: Rayman Raving Rabbids.  According to Rayman creator Ancel, the Wii’s controller is already key in the development, and the examples we’ve heard of so far (more on that in our upcoming preview) could easily be modified.

More on this story as it develops.
