EA Sports president Peter Moore has given his thoughts on the codenamed ‘Arc’ PlayStation motion controller, saying that Sony’s invention will be “a different experience” from the Nintendo Wii.

Speaking in an interview conducted by CVG, the EA Sports boss talks about Sony’s motion controller.

I’ve seen the technology working. I think it’s going to be a great complement to what’s out there. Sony will put their collective technology and marketing might behind it.

It’s a different experience than Wii and we’re watching it with great interest. As you might imagine, we’re working on stuff – in particular on what sports can bring to it.

One thing we’ve learnt with the Wii is that we can afford [to spend time on building bespoke games]. The two that stand out in terms of authentic sports motion on Wii are golf and tennis. If you can capture that motion, that brings the game to life in a very unique way. We’re looking at how we bring that sports credibility and authenticity to life with Sony’s new platform.

Recently, THQ CEO Brian Farrel all but confirmed the ‘Arc’ name for the motion controller.
