SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive’s Travis Steiner spoke regarding SOCOM 4, the Playstation Move, and addressing skeptical fans. For all those that are worried that the Move will ruin the experience of the future SOCOM games, Steiner assures fans that everything is going to be fine. Zipper has designed SOCOM 4 with the standard DualShock controller in mind, and that the Move controller is just another option.
In regards to the quality of the motion controls, Steiner asserts that they work quite well and players have reacted positively to the new control scheme. Both control schemes have the same functionality. However, testing has shown that the Move offers faster and superior target acquisition. Mr. Steiner believes that people that prefer to play shooters on their PC will see the type precision and fluid movement from Move that they get from a mouse and keyboard.
