Both Robert Bowling of Infinity Ward and Reggie of Nintendo have rubbished thoughts that the traditional controller is dying. Reggie noted people want a variety of experiences while Bowling commented that controllers are important for accuracy in first person shooter games.
Here's what they both said:
"I think it's going to be awhile, if ever, that we get away from a solid control pad, especially with our game," said Robert Bowling, creative strategist at "Modern Warfare" franchise developer Infinity Ward.
"In a first-person shooter, you have to have that accuracy, so I don't think we will ever move away from having that stick control and using a control pad."
"Consumers want variety, and they want a range of experiences," said Fils-Aime.
