PS4, Xbox 720 will automatically use Move, Kinect - Ubisoft

CEO doesn't want to call a winner between new motion control devices

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot doesn't want to speculate whether Move or Kinect will win the new motion control battle, but he expects both to be alive and kicking when the next generation of home consoles arrives.

"I think it will be very interesting to see what happens in the US and Europe," he told MCV. "I don't like to say who will win, but I think one will win in one territory and one in the other." We guess he means Move in Europe and Kinect in the US.

Ubisoft was quick to announce support for both following their announcements, and Guillemot sees the investment in the new motion control devices as a long-term one that will span console generations.

"... It's not just an investment in this generation, it's building the next one too," he said. "The next generation of console will automatically use all of these motion-sensing innovations and so a lot more people will be able to play with the next generation of consoles."

Sony has said that Move sold 1.5 million units in Europe in its first month of availability, while Microsoft expects to shift three million Kinects over the holiday season.
