Microsoft, Rare, and more comment on Wiimote copy-cat rumors

“There’s absolutely no truth to the rumors, and I have no idea where they’re coming from. Gyration is working on some game-related projects, but it won’t be announced until later this year, and it is not related to the Xbox 360.” - Zac Rivera, the PR rep for Movea Inc

“There are publishers in studios using it right now, but we have not announced our relationships.” - Motus chairman Satayan Mahajan

“Nintendo’s success is great for us. It’s helped broaden the industry, and we feel like we’re a part of that effort. I think that Xbox 360 is a great compliment to that experience; our belief is we offer an experience that has a broad appeal from teens to adults and even young adults… what we’re seeing right now, coming out of last holiday, is that the fastest-growing segment for us is teenagers and teenage girls. With Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Dance Dance Revolution… the music genre has really exploded and those titles are selling best on Xbox 360. (referring to Microsoft’s rumored motion-sensing controller) We haven’t announced anything like that. We really don’t comment on those types of speculative rumors.” - Aaron Greenberg, director of product management for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live

“Many things are possible, but that’s not to say that any of them could be true.” - Rare insider
