Epic Mickey 2 on PS3 supports Move, but no Kinect on Xbox


The first Epic Mickey made extensive use of the Wii Remote's pointer, to control the direction of Mickey's paint and thinner. The PS3 version of Epic Mickey 2 will use the PlayStation Move accessory to replicate that experience, though I was unable to see this functionality in my hands-on demo this week.

The Move support is optional, however -- you're free to control Mickey's paintbrush with the right analog stick of the DualShock 3 as well. The regular controller even retains a bit of motion control, allowing you to shake the DualShock to do a spin attack.

Junction Point reps told me that Kinect support wouldn't be part of the Xbox 360 version, so don't expect to wave a real paintbrush around.
