Too gimmicky or too technologically difficult to use the controller as a steering wheel or to fly a plane?

Because it's less responsive than the barebones Wiimote.

Because motion control is a gimmick that isn't really needed in games.

I can count the games on one hand that did anything worthwhile with motion control (Folklore, Heavy Rain, and...uh...yeah, that's pretty much it).

Maybe they should have invested more money into it?

Lack of precision.

Probably should have saved their money and never developed it to begin with.

After spending years teaching myself to not move the controller like a spaz whilst playing, I ain't going back to moving the damned controller.

Because Lair was a disaster.

I think it's because it wasn't something people actually asked for; it also didn't fit in the PlayStation style of games. The only game that I thought that had an interesting simple use for it was MGS4, were you can shake it vertically to reset the OctoCamo, even during cutscenes.

Because shaking the controller looks ridiculous and feels weird. My cat judges me.
