Wonder wants games for the blind

Motown singer challenges industry.

Legendary Motown singer Stevie Wonder has challenged the games industry to produce content for blind people like himself.

Wonder presented The Beatles: Rock Band with the Best Music Game award at this weekend's Spike VGA 2009 extravangza and had this message for the audience: "I want to see the companies that make these video games make them accessible so that people like myself can enjoy them too."

Videogames, in their current state, rely almost exclusively on visual input to challenge the player. Whether rumble feedback and the new flock of motion sensing equipment can overcome Wonder's particular hurdle remains to be seen.
