NowGamer: NowGamer conducts an overview of the three new motion control technologies presented at this year's E3, and survey's the office to find out which of the Big Three came out on top Winner: Project Natal Runner up: PS3 motion controller
Natal owns sony and nintendo motion controller.
go rape milo
Natal obviously, because sony doesn't got have jack, and the Wii is old news.
Nintendo won it, obviously, since they have the only system where motion controls come as the standard. They're also the only ones this gen who have proven they can take a first-party peripheral and make it almost as much of a standard as the "normal" controller (the WiiFit balance board). But between Natal and PSMotion (not really sure what they're calling it), my vote of confidence goes with PSMotion. Yeah, their tech demo was just that: a crappy-looking tech demo. Yet the things they demonstrated (yes, demonstrated, not just showed off a video trailer) ran circles around Natal without question, and it seems far more practical for conventional gaming purposes.
The real question is: where is it? Bam. There it is.
I think that Natal **COULD** be used to make on hell of an adventure/mystery game/survival horror game. But the PS3-thingy looks like I could easily play any type of game with it. So unless the 360 will allow for controllers in your hand, I have to say I think it would be easier to get a decent game out of the PS3 motion control. In the end, it really all comes down to execution. Will either one actually be able to pull off a decent game with their controllers? The Wii is just now getting games I think look like fun (Red Steel 2, the conduit). I will stick with my PC for the sure fire fun, and hold on to my two consoles in the hopes they come up with something good.
african American can play the ps eye and the ps stick
My grandpa would laugh his balls off! Oh, another war! "Yeah G you might have fought Hitlers worst at El Alamein but I was a footsoldier in the console wars and got slightly chafed when they escalated into what we all feared-The Motion Control Wars, a war started by Nintendo. The scary basta£$s." Motion control wars my arse. We have't even played anything which shows what M+ can do yet let alone the other damn things and, also, is this the first war where absolutely noone gives a toss? Some might pretend for fanboy reasons but they don't care and those who like their motion controls don't see any fekkin war anyway.
Hmmm, what if its late at night and I want to relax and play some games in my bedroom? but can't cause I gotta be in the living room in order not to break everything surrounding me?!
It sure seems to have the media fooled, but you really think gamers are going to want to jump up and down in front of their screens like idiots to make Master Chief take on the Covenant? Of course not. When I get home from work, the last thing I want to do is leap around in front of my television. I want to sink into my couch, have a coke and switch off for an hour. That's why the PS3 motion demo appealed to me, and they mentioned this in the article. They actually showed you how it could be used with traditional games, games I would actually want to play. I'm not spending what little gaming time I have making elephant shapes with my buddies and throwing virtual paint on the screen. Natal was aimed right at the casuals. Gamers look elsewhere.
Everybody knows that Microsoft won the Motion Sensor show. everybody STILL talking about. It's even talked and demoed on f**king night and day talkshows.
After playing Tiger Woods 10 on the Wii, all I can say is I cannot wait for the PS3 motion controllers so that I can get Tiger Woods 11 and play another perfect one-to-one golf game, but with much better HD graphics and more accessible online play. And yeah, I believe that a Wiimote w/ Wii MotionPlus or a PS3 Motion Controller (as demoed) would be much more accurate, reliable, and comfortable to use for a golf game. Tangibility for the win.
why can't ps3 owners just be acceptable that Natale is better. It is totally new and fresh. I think sony is just copying the wii motion controllers. Natale is truley amazing with it's features. Sony fanboys are always on this site and it is really bugging me there always complaining and talking down on xbox but i'll say look at numbers and i love my xbox and i dont need some fanboys talking down what me and my friends think is truley amazing. Disagree me and keep your dumb sony pride with you tools. Natale Ftw!!!! Ps: i like some ps3 owners just not the ones who hate xbox. UP
Dude why can't 360 fanboys except that Natal is virtually useless in playing shooters which is 360's biggest market. Just remove the thick coat covering your eyes and accept the fact that Natal is for casual gamers. Just tell me how the hell will you move with it, or reload with it? Aiming and taking headshots will be tough as hell and what if the thing glitches while playing online like it did at the showing (that foot of Avatar thing?) Don't tell me it's great for playing mini games. I ain't saying PS controller is better than Natal or something like that. Only reason I feel the PsC has more potential is cause of it's 1:1 accuracy. Think of it like a hardcore Wii. That is why I feel PsC appeals to me more.
sony showed nothing but the copy cat wii motion. while ms got the press and the attention for bringing it to another level. nobody cares or even mentions the copy cat women pleasure 5000 that sony threw together. when people see that they are going to just buy a wii.
Haha, wait you being serious.... http://www.n4g.com/events_e... Microsoft copied Sony with the whole 3D camera thing... just like to point it out. So I'd just like to point shut up fanboy.. I am a fanboy of games, I like to call myself a gamer, I play good games which are fun or push boundries... regardless of system.
Calm down Nasim
Yeah....these articles should end any day now guys. /sarcasm.
the wii-motion plus make my head explode when I think how much potential it has natal and ps motion are very limited,natal,you can't run,walk,run,climb but it looks interseting,ps3 motion looks so accurate and spot on but the big mistake imo is the lack of an analoge stick,so it will be limited wii motion plus has 1:1 controles+THE NUNCHUK,which have infinte potential imo,in wii motion + you can mix all your games,with 1:1 no matter how big and grand your game is. hope to see more about natal(it may work perfect for boxing games) as well as sony add an analoge or something attached to the ps3 motion
im sure theyll add it, it was just a prototype after all.
I thought the 'PSMotion' had analogue sticks on it. They're going to have to add something. One analog stick on each controller would be perfect, even if they're like the PSP's. The major flaw I see in Natal is not being able to move around. You can only really move a foot in each direction, so walking through the game would be kind of difficult. Unless you're into walking in place.
i thought on the E3 demo of the PSmotion they mentioned it having analog buttons or somethin.
he is an usher. he need to see the doctor.
DAMN,don't take things so serios,u look oh so emotionaly offended,don't worry,it's a piece of plastic,nothing will come out and eat u XD,it's games it's fun and it's my view,it may change the time I see games for ps motion,natal or wii motion plus,im open minded,don't cry againg please the REAL THING IS,all of u just stop comparing these two motion controls,you'r wasting your time,we still have not seen anything,I hope they have hardcore AAA titles,it's so abvious that ms and sony wanna take on the casual market and I hate casual games,I can't stand them so please,no offense next time,we are gamers,we have to respect each other.ok,tell your opinion,don't bash other opinions,we need to have nice discutions here not FLAMEFIGHTS.K
im just want to teasing with you. get a grip. lol.
All we seen of Sony's controller was a raw tech demo with no sort of game built around the tech. They didn't even allow hands on for the media. How is it the runner up? the Wiimote should have been the runner up.
So you were satisfied with Dodgeball then? That sword/shield/bow & arrow tech demo looked a hell of a lot better than stomping godzilla, fake skateboarding, and air driving. I guess that's just me though.
Natal and ps3 motion controller . Even though we havent seen any major games for it . We do know games will be made with this tech.
Burnout Paradise, the sony, meh, nothing special, do you have to buy two controlers or just one, some things took one controler the some needed two and you need the ps camera right? I wonder what the costs will be.
damn i see you in every natal article saying i want to rape milo. Man MGo i'm going to call Chris" Hansen on your ass if you keep this up.
he is a droid what you expect? he is jerking it to the thought of the new michael jackson game. milo is on many of the pedophile ps3 owners minds.
You got that look in yo eye, og triple og.
ps3 cause what game would use natal?
Ofc Natal win ... duhhh...
The answer to this does not require anyone to speculate. All people have to ask themselves is which products are people and the media are talking about. Are people taking about Project Natal and or Sony's remote? E3 is all about getting people to talk about the new stuff... the one that managed to get people to talk about their products the most.. that one wins.
I own all the consoles, standard controllers, gaming mice, flight sticks, steering wheels and gaming chairs/c0ckpits and fight sticks. I am not into motion controls and I hope mainstream gaming always gives us the option of standard controllers. I'm not against motion controls because it is expanding the gaming industry but I get enough exercise when I'm working or covering the HDL. I like to kick back and relax while I am gaming. Big fat comfy recliner with my surround sound cranked and my gaming door locked. Now if only I can get that spare key off of my wife's keychain without her noticing. ;)
Truer words have never been spoken. Well said, PirateThom.
pirate man u deserve bubbles 2 WORDS better than a whole paragraph and your avatar pretty much suits it XD good sense of humor TAKE THIS.....1-UP
Prototypes against an actual product... interesting how prototypes win the war.
i say if you want to play with a motion controller buy a wii i could careless about natal or sony controller just give me games i can play with my standard controller
Everyone keeps saying the pseye can't do what Natal can. And that's an absolute lie. They were demoing that same wall crashing game back on the Eye toy years ago. Where's teh pope when ya need em.
KING OF THE DOUCHE BAGS.
Sony HAHAHAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAAAHHAAAAA AAAHAHAAAA!!!!! Sorry, I couldn't type that with a straight face. LMAO!!!
There's a reason you belong in the Open Zone...
No games were show for either. The games will decide this issue, not especulation
Well that was biased. So many 360 editors, and not one Sony or Nintendo people.
Glad I'm not the only person who noticed.
Seriously. All of the people who work for Xbox 360-centric publications (3 out of the 7, nearly half) picked Microsoft (surprise surprise). There were no people from Nintendo or PS3-specific publications, and none of those 4 people who work for multiplatform-based publications picked Microsoft. One of them said he refused to pick a winner, one picked Sony, one picked Nintendo, and one said it was a tie between Sony and Microsoft. So in other words, the "final decision" is worthless on account of the people involved in the voting. If you got rid of the 3 people who work for Xbox publications, then Microsoft didn't win at all.
LOL, the 4 who don't work for an Xbox magazine didn't vote for Natal.
Well, where I would agree, that Wii + Motion Plus might be the best alround motion control device (reasons are stated above elsewhere), it lacks a certain fire power consolewise. That's why my points go to the PS-device. Natal looks kinda nice but I'd need a bit more to see, before I can really judge it (some of it can indeed be done with a cam, but we'll see). It's good that this other dimension of gaming is being explored.
Natal is a gimmick at best.
Natal is a really cool concept, i think the problem will be with how it performs. Kind of how when you first heard about the wiimote, sounded really cool until you tried it and realized it´s not precise and isnt that great with fast movement. There is where i found Sonys waggle controlles interesting, he could litteraly thickle the skeletons neck when they showed it. But its to early to tell, hopefully we will see more soon.
but what they presented onscreen was poor.a ball game and a painting game. nintendo made the wiimote as accurate as it was supposed to be at launch. sony presented 1:1 control.call it whatever you want,"dildo", or whatever. IT WORKED. that what counts.and it seems to work for most games.since no one knows what games are coming,we can't say if natal or ps3 motion will be better.but sony wowed after dr marks was nervous at the beginning.and with pseye,you can have voice commands and hand gesture. hype means nothing when the facts show microsoft had no games for it.and going by DEMOS,sony had things that would be more fun. apocalypse.....
I couldn't agree with you MORE. Seriously, it looked great.
Might want to stop spreading the words of truth around these parts until school starts again. Right now the number of alts is sky high and the "clone wars" are in full effect. Besides, don't we actually have games to play instead of discussing tech that is 9-infinity months away.
natal is a joke really
But Sony's wand is totally cool right?
aka mr bill gates baby
because he dose not have much to do with Microsoft anymore
I like how most of the people quoted on the bottom are from X360 magazines and journalism sites. Fair right!?
Well they're marketing the hell out of Natal. Hardly anyone has even heard about Sony's motion control. Their version actually looked a lot more effective to me, but I guess we'll see. Sony sucks hard at marketing.
But I can't help but notice that MS is digging themselves into a hole trying to fight a war on two fronts. There's no way that they're going to beat Nintendo in price with Natal+Arcade. And then Sony has a price drop that everyone is waiting for.
but what is that going to mean in six months when all MS is going to have are Wii-clone motion games?
Bubububu Sony ps eye cant use it to navigate a menu or make things drrawn on paper come to life well BAM here it is. That is next gen and actually advances with tech.
Unless you count the Eyepet which has nothing to do with the Wand. Forget that the picture was actually shown in the Milo demo. Or that the Wand paint demo was far more precise than Natal's abstract splash job. Edit: Bit confused by your statement, and then your link to the Eyetoy trailer.
What i mean is kudo said they were the only 1 to use moco to navigate through menus when eyepet just demoed that. And sony beat microsoft with the scannining of stuff like tanks or drawing something like a airplane and then get it animated ingame while microsoft only showed a lame commercial. Even so without that the wand thing would still win. Wish they would have demoed it with demon souls or oblivion or a rts game would show the true power of what sony wand can do.
Is that Sony was hinting at a controller free UI when they first announced the PS3's cam, have been working on it since the PS2, yet have done nothing. Forget that MS is now taking credit for thinking it up in the first place. Though I get the feeling that it wont be ready day one Natal's launch. Probably not the first six months.
BIG QUESTION IS NATAL REALLY A "MOTION CONTROLLER"? OR CAN YOU SAY OTHER THING LIKE "ZCAM CONTROLLER" OR "TRACKING BODY CONTROLLER"?
Only one company could trick the entire internet media into overwhelming jock riding. For all the 360 shooter lovers I just want to know how they plan on playing a shooter without a controller...LOL
