SOCOM 4 Will Use PlayStation Move And/Or DualShock

Zipper Interactive has confirmed that while SOCOM 4 will make use of Sony's PlayStation Move controller, the game will also support full play with a DualShock controller. Travis Steiner commented:
“First and foremost, SOCOM 4 was designed with the DualShock in mind. When we started this game over three years ago, Move didn’t even exist yet. I cannot emphasize this point enough: the game supports both controllers. And again, we designed SOCOM 4 with the DualShock in mind."

“What ended up happening is that when we found out about the Move, we decided to try it out and see if it fits with the SOCOM experience very well. And so far, the reaction of the people that have tried it is that it’s actually integrated quite well."

“The key there is that it’s an optional control mechanic, and in no way is any other part of the SOCOM game being hindered or negatively affected by Move’s integration."

“It’s hard to know how well it works in SOCOM until you actually try it. I think people have some preconceived notions about how effective motion controls are in a shooter game, because up until now, the response time just hasn’t been there, the accuracy, as well as the graphics."

“The PS3 can deliver the kind of realistic HD gaming that I think serious shooter players would want. And I think when you try the Move in SOCOM 4, a lot of people become pleasantly surprised by how effective and accurate it can be”.
Here's hoping the game arrives without complications by the end of the year.
