Child of Eden offers joy(pad) (controls)

This may not be news to you, but it would appear that many people – myself included – were unaware that Child of Eden can be played with a good old fashioned joypad instead of the Kinect.

I could blame ignorance on my own behalf for not knowing this but I think Ubisoft is also partly to blame – it has been very heavily promoted as a Kinect-only title. We’ll never know for certain if this is something Microsoft has specifically requested but you can’t help to think that they’ve missed out on a few extra sales.

  • Now that the game is out, yeah. But prior to release it was talked about as a Kinect only game.

    Anywho, a quick survey on Twitter revealed that those unaware of joypad controls are in double figures.
