At this point it's hard to see the value of such a feature, in terms of gameplay. I envision a bunch of people standing around in the middle of town, flailing about... flailing circles!

lol she's waving her right hand but her character in the game is waving its left hand. i can only imagine players trying to stab enemies with their shields and trying to block arrows with their swords XD

My impression was she was waving her left hand (facing the screen) and the character was waving her left hand as well. Since the person is silhouetted it is hard to determine facing.

I don't see the silhouette aspect here. The person is directly facing the camera. She is waving her right hand. Her left hand is either amputated or behind her back. And the avatar is about 3/4 facing the camera. They're definitely waving opposite hands... OR... the lag is so great that she waved the left, put it behind her back, waved her right, the avatar waved left and then the picture snapped.

My impression is that in this photo, no motion sensing is actually occurring and this girl is just posing based off her character (albeit inaccurately).

Maybe we should steal this and backwards engineer it like China does with everyone elses' tech.

Motion control is an interesting advance and I can see the value.

But just replacing our keyboards/controllers with semaphore seems ridiculous.

Fighting game where you are acting out the actual moves? Perfect!
MMO where left-arm-up means target-nearest-enemy? Silly.

I've just figured it out... the real person... is on the computer screen. That's just a robot chick on the left! So when the computer-person moves, the robot chick has to raise a hand. Got it.

Sounds awesome, I said once before in the past that if consoles are to be where MMOs are going to go they'll need easier controllers and motion sensing systems are what is needed. I hope they succeed, for the future of gaming.
