You could almost be watching three clips from the same video - how consumer marketing plays a critical part in the motion control wars...
I think Wii and the PS Move will be locked into one battle because they both use wands. MS will be seen separately because it will be a totally different experience.
Incorrect. The Move will be locked in two battles. People fail to realize that Natal isn't as impressive as the hype. The PS3 motion controller is good enough at what Natal tries to have as it's strong suit, that the Move will more than likely receive ports for it. Look at all the big publishers, they are supporting both controls, although the Move has 2-3 times more support from publishers. The same will happen with Wii games ported to the Move. On the other hand, neither of the competitors can boast about having any where near the features Move has. The wii is terrible at spacial recognition, no camera to detect movement, and movement is limited due to poor handling of screen frames. Natal on the other hand lacks precision, is plagued with lag, and there is no controller to allow it to play hardcore game experiences, there is also the hit to the memory of the 360. Not to mention, both competitors, especially the Wii are incredibly lacking in the technical department of what the console offers. Move is the best solution by a mile.
Foliage -- Some of those Move demos had a heckuva lot of lag (if the lag that could cripple Natal comes from relying on camera input, there could be some issues with the Eye, too). I hope it's because those demos were taken from earlier stages of development for their respective games, because there's some promising stuff there. That said, the PS3 just got to a competitive price point. If Sony plans on tacking another $100 on for a Move bundle, they've already put themselves behind the 8 ball again for attracting new users. And it's still up to devs to push the tech that's there. Third parties had a looooooong learning curve with the Wii remote.
You have SOOO many inaccuracies I don't even know where to begin. 1. Lag - You do realize that there are reports from yesterday about MOVE and Lag. Granted it will be corrected, but so will Natal. How are you gonna criticize Natal when MOVE has shown the same exact problem. 2. "People fail to realize that Natal isn't as impressive as the hype." Oh I'm sorry, I forgot YOU personally know more then the media who has tried this first hand. (Sarcasm)Please enlighten us with the real truth you know because you are a psychic. 3. "Move has 2-3 times more support from publishers." AGAIN, how would you know this when final numbers have not been released from either party??? 4. "Natal on the other hand lacks precision" Another statement made with NOOO knowledge. Do you work for MicroSoft? Have you played the final build?? I'm not saying one is better then the other but please try arguing with FACTS not just make believe fanboy perceptions. And what I was talking about was perception. Yes, me and you as true gamers know that the MOVE and Wii are vastly differently, but this is targeted towards the Mass Market. They will see wand and control and automatically think Wii. The Natal is atleast different so people will think of it different. That is all I was saying.
I find all of them equally boring...don't like these kind o' trailers
I love my PS3, but I think the Wii trailer is better here.
The Wii trailer included an actual classic game that was good enough to get a 95 on metacritic. Sony has to prove they have a game worth buying this new controller for. I will still buy the black Wiimote with Motionplus over this new Sony controller from what I've seen so far. Bring the heat Sony. :)
wii trailer is better, show more games and look interactive lol ^_^
motion controls are lame. ~ Sony's looks like the wii but in HD. ~ Microsoft looks like the eyetoy in HD.
I can respect. Hates Motion Controls no matter what company makes em. I'd bubble you up, but no need. Oh and for the record, I love Motion Controls when done right. As for the trailers..no contest, Wii by a country mile. I hate to say this, because I thought Sony might have something worth while, but they didn't. All they seemed to have were more detailed tech demos of the lame tech demos they showed at E3. And I'm not too sure those problems mentioned will be ironed out. When developing a game the foundation has to be the interface, third parties largely just tack on waggle. Nintendo has largely been the only company capable of making good/great MC games. Sony's first party while good, is not in Nintendo's league. And their experience with Motion is even more limited. As these displays show.
Screw the trailers, the demos are what interested me. And some of those demos are laggy, which would jive with all of the people who talked about possible latency issues with camera tracking (and the Eye's refresh rate). I hope they iron things out, because the Wii is starved for good third-person shooters, and I would LOVE to play SOCOM with pointer shooting controls.
Wii and Move, hmmmm....
All 3 there's one thing missing from Sony's trailer though and that's voice Recognition and also the ability to go through the menus with out using ur controller since the Eyetoy for the PS2 was able to do that in its game. I would like to see what the new trailer for PS Move will be like for E3. Since that trailer was manly to introduces this software to the dev's. All 3 showed you what you need to see that they are all gonna be a lot of fun. If done right and we know the wii was done right. And we now know the PlayStation Move is going in the right direction, now we wait for E3 for Natal to see where that's heading in this is a great time for gamers if you hate motion controls and if you don't.
And you know MOVE is the best motion control because you played all three of the products from each company to compare or are you going by what fanboys...oops I mean people say about it. Maybe you need to wait until MOVE and Natal is out before you make conclusions. Why do I get this strange feeling that you were probably one of the many that bashed the Wii remote and Wii when it launched and bashed Natal when it was first announced and then praised the "Wand" when SOny announced it 24 hours later...............
It's the only one in real peoples hands with real games and has sold 50+ millions units. Everything else, Natal included is just hyperware right now. Ask this silly question when all three can be compared by real consumers, not the fluff you see in videos.
