Try hold hold in your amazement, folks. This “Gametrak Freedom” from PDP (Performance Designed Products) is coming the Xbox 360 in the Autumn. It features four face buttons, a D-pad, and one trigger on the back, and will ship with one game, Squeeballs (a “Party” game). Well, this is just unbelievable. Who would have thought that we’d have motion controls already. I thought this was just a fantasy, like virtual reality and flying cars. It’s the most innovative and original product I’ve ever seen!

And what’s this “Party” game that it ships with? A game that has mini games? I don’t know about you, but that sounds mind-blowing to me. A game where you use a motion controller to play many small games with a party of people is, again, so imaginative that I’m not sure we’re ready for it yet.

  1. haha is this real? It almost seems as if I have seen it before, no it couldn't be ;)

    So is there also a sensor bar? Were will the point of reference be? Well in the end this just shows how the Wii and it's motion controller are nothing close to being a cheap gimmick ^^

    After all imitation is the highest form of flattery.

    • Yes, Giant Lenin, they would. On Wii you can play Wii Sports, Carnival Games, and all those other casual games with a motion controller, but with this, you can only play Squeeballs. Also, the branding isn't really there. And Microsoft is too late to the party. A casual gamer will buy what their friends have, and a lot of casual people own Wiis, so that in turn draws their friends to said system.

      • But whats to stop those games or similar ones being brought out on the 360? Yeh it's kind of annoying how they just focus on the casual gamers now for the Wii, bringing out 1 decent title with every blue moon.

    • Yeah I wouldn't worry to much about that. I mean if the PC gets a lot of the 360 games but people still buy the 360 I'm sure people will still buy the Wii if another console would use motion controls.

  2. The Xbox 360 is cheaper and has better graphics, so it has much more potential. Graphics are the biggest problem with the Wii.

    I imagine porting Wii games will be easy because of the Xbox’s power, even a clumsily written Wii emulator would fly on 360.

    I don’t understand why it has taken so long, when motion controllers are such a great concept?
