Katamari Creator Taking A Break From Videogames

Keita Takahashi, the man behind titles Katamari and Noby Noby Boy has said he'll be taking a break from videogames following the future presented at E3 this year being as he described, 'a bit dull':
“At E3 I saw people putting on speeches but I thought the future seemed a bit dark. The 3D games didn’t spark my interest. I think motion control’s a bit old now, I don’t think those games are the future. It all seemed a bit dull.”
One of Takahashi's gripes was with the advancement of technology as he commented he'd rather go back to the PS2 days:
“It’d be good if we could go back to the PS2 era. Instead of spending lots of effort developing new technology, I think ideas are the most important thing.”
Isn't that what Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network are for? Well, whatever he gets up to, all the best from us.
