Aptus promises 3D games using motion controllers

Actiga on Tuesday announced plans for Aptus Games, a new Web-based gaming environment that runs on Macs and PCs. Scheduled to go online during the third calendar quarter of 2008, the site will feature 3D games you'll play through a propriety 3D controller.

Although the games will also work with a mouse and keyboard, Aptus' forthcoming game controller will enable users to have 3D interaction with their environment. And because the site works through a standard Web browser, it won't matter if you're playing on the Mac or on Windows. All that's required is a broadband Internet connection.

Aptus Games seems ready to leverage Actiga's development of game controllers. Under its Qmotions brand, Actiga makes speciality controllers for golf, baseball, snowboarding and skateboarding games.

Actiga said that Aptus Games will span game genres ranging from action, strategy, puzzle, reality, racing, sports and more. Aptus Games will soon begin beta testing on a limited basis—users interested in the new service are encouraged to visit the Web site for more details.
