With Move's release only a few months away, it's not a surprise more developers announce support for the company's motion device. Eurogamer reports Ubisoft's long-delayed strategy game R.U.S.E. is the latest to incorporate Move. It won't, however, be adding support for Microsoft's Kinect.

Eurogamer recently attended a R.U.S.E. event in London, where Move came up. The developers added Move support only "four or five weeks ago," according to senior producer Mathieu Girard.

As you might expect, Move's primary function is as a pointer, somewhat replicating what a PC user can execute with a mouse. According to the report, "flicking" also manipulates the camera.

As of right now, Girard doesn't expect to add Kinect to the list of supported devices, citing the hardware's inability to fully recognize player actions unless they are standing up as a deterrent.

Microsoft has denied Kinect is unplayable while sitting down since the news started making the rounds at E3, with the company later admitting it's a limitation being worked on prior to launch.
