Sony to coders: For Move, don't rehash Wii failures

Note to developers planning to make games for Sony's PlayStation Move controller: don't even try to rehash your past titles for the Wii.

Speaking in an interview with Gamasutra, Sony's senior vice president of publisher relations, Rob Dyer, told the publication that when it comes to motion gaming, some titles work, and some just don't. And his company is currently working with developers to help them find the right genres and types of games that would work with the PlayStation Move--and nix those that would not.



"Our challenge here is to make sure [developers are] doing it with the right games and the right genres, and that's where we're spending a lot of our time--going back to people and going, 'Good idea. Bad idea. Good idea. Yeah, not so good idea,'" Dyer said. He went on to say his company is doing everything it can to stop developers from creating games for the Move for "millions of dollars" and lose money because they don't appeal to users.

Finding success can be tough for game developers. Although the Wii is a wildly popular game console, almost all of the successful titles on the platform have come from Nintendo. That poor track record for third parties has prompted some companies to rail against the Wii.
