    Good segment, Laura.


    Rather than have Microsoft develop their own motion controller (didn't they try that already before running into patent and copyright issues?), why not pursue a brief software partnership with Nintendo.  There have been a few Microsoft owned DS titles already...and Bungie did work on a secret Halo title for the DS before Microsoft cut it.  I could definitely see some interesting PC and Wii titles that utilize this concept.

  • Thanks Arztek! I think something of that sorts might already be in works Wink
