But I get your point, more accessability, more customers, more money. I just don't feel that this is going to get any more customers because of this.
As for disabled people playing, thats great. Though i doubt there are many disabled people who have bought a 300$ device they can't use (though there could be a family or roommates where one person bought the system and another is disabled). An alternate controller would be a much better fix for these type of folks.
All in all i guess it's a moot point, because it doesn't hurt my game experience.
And your right, this may not get many or any new customers per say, but this type of mode may allow a persons son, younger brother, or gaming inadequate friend to try it and may help persuade them to try video games more often. Hell Nintendo has a mode in New Super Mario Bros. Wii that allows the game to play itself (no input from you at all) if you want it to, and I won't be surprised if this sneaks into more Nintendo titles.
Also this may help disabled people play games, but as a C6-quadriplegic gamer who plays a ton of games I don't think it is necessary for them, but if they aren't gamers this may help introduce them to the medium.
