No Move, Kinect Support For Fight Night: Champion

EA Announces Fight Night Champion

Fight Night Champion is coming out on the Playstation 3 and the 360, so you might think the game would feature support for the Move or Kinect. Boxing seems the perfect fit for the motion control systems, right? Wrong.

According to EA  producer Brian Hayes, gamers are just too out-of-shape to handle realistic boxing action. "It's a little bit too twitch-based, not to mention the fact that standing on your feet for three minutes and throwing punches is something that, believe it or not, might be beyond the fitness level of most gamers." Hayes said.

Sometimes, The Truth hurts -- Hayes is probably right. If you stand up and start swinging right now, you'll probably only last about 45 seconds, let's be honest.

But enough about fitness. Hayes isn't saying "never" about the combination of Fight Night and motion control “It’s definitely something that’s on the table in terms of exploration for us, but Fight Night Champion is not being developed for Move or for Microsoft Kinect,” he said.
