Battlefield 4 Motion Controls Are A Gimmick – DICE executive producer Patrick Bach tells us in his latest statement that there will be no “Motion Controls” in Battlefield 4.
He also adds his thoughts and thinks that “Motion Controls” are a gimmick and a waste of time and money for the DICE studio.
“We are not interested in things that don’t make the game better. There are a lot of gimmicks, people throwing money at us asking can you implement support for this quirky control thing? No, it doesn’t make the game better.”
“We are extremely open to innovation, but if it’s a gimmick, there’s no point unless it adds value to the player. Touch screens used to be a gimmick, because no one could get it to work until iPhone came out and used it right. It adds to the experience, and now everyone is doing it. To us it’s the same with motion control and perceptual gaming in general, if it adds, great. If it’s a gimmick, ignore it.”
