Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has said he is "flattered" by Sony's PlayStation Move
Seems like Sony is paying tribute to Nintendo Innovation. Complete Rip Off. Nintendo must be happy if Sony copys thier great idea. But Move is just a downgrade from Wii Motion Plus. As the nunchuk don't have motion detection. Damn actually as a gamer I am embrassed at playstation Move. I mean how could sony do such a major rip off. Sony fans have also admitted its ashaming.
So Natal isn't a rip off of Eyetoy? Avatars aren't a rip off of Mii's? Lips isn't a rip off of Singstar? Scrap Metal isn't a rip off of Twisted Metal? Get your head out of your a$$. All companies do it. Not only that but Sony has been working on this tech since early 2000's. Check youtube if you want. Nintendo were just the first to commercialize the technology.
Everything is a ripoff of something even the natal.
so reggie and nintendo are flattered. let's see if they are "flattered" when their market share lessens next year when all motion controls will have been released. let's see if they are "flattered" when third party companies make ps3 versions of wii games that sound BETTER,look BETTER and control BETTER.parents will now say when seeing the commercials in the future: "they offer a better version on our ps3 for just $10 bucks more than our wii?""let's get that one." let's see if they are "flattered" when wii gets the inferior version and ps3 gets the BETTER ps3 version if you have both consoles.if the third party wii games don't sell in the future,and the ps3 version sells more,what happens to third party developers on wii?they are already running like the No More Heroes dev. let's see if consumers will still be "flattered" by nintendo's offerings when they can't even offer GOOD online gaming,HD graphics,HD [email protected]!...what would the point be of getting a wii besides nintendo's first party games? i'm flattered reggie's flattered.
It's too late for Sony; the majority who wanted motion controls already bought a Wii. Even the games for the PS Move look similar to the ones Wii has. Let's not forget how much negative press the PS move and its games are getting.
Homicide your talking about the games move ha and it hasn't been even released and if you knew anything about the gaming media you know 90% of it is biased towards the ps3. N4g is full of ps3 hate articles, have they changed anything ? nope
they can be quite UGLY too.especially on an HD television. similar is not the same as identical.the first word similar means "close."the second word identical means "carbon copy." there will be games that are ports to ps3.making gameplay similar.but you are missing something: I DON'T HAVE TO BUY A WII.I HAVEN'T.I WON'T HAVE TO. and as i said above,they will look better,sound better,control better with the right development on ps3.why get the wii version of EA's game if you can get the ps3 version?ubisoft,activision,cap com,sega,etc. not everyone has bought a wii.and they won't need to.there are a lot of sports fans out there.and a lot of them have a ps3.or they have a 360.all sports games will be potentially more accurate and better looking. unless you can give me a well though out reason on why a family that owns both wii and ps3,should get the wii version over the ps3 version beyond price(as you need to buy move starter kit),there is no other reason to get a wii in the future or a third party wii game when it comes to cross platform. can't watch HD movies,don't have HD games and wii has pitiful online gaming.but every time you see wii in marketing photos and commercials,the family is PLAYING in front of a HD television. "how many commercials have you seen where wii gamers are playing on SDTVs?" thought so.
'But Move is just a downgrade from Wii Motion Plus. As the nunchuk don't have motion detection.' By your comment, it's easy to tell you dont have experience first hand with the Wii. And OBVIOUSLY you dont have any experience with the Move. I'm Glad we get such educated impressions on motion gaming, mr. spartan
Just buy component cables for Wii :) The games Sony showed us for Move are exactly the same as Wii Sports Resorts, but worse. And that fighting game looks God awful. It's hilarious Sony is even bothering releasing this 4 years after Nintendo has done it. And yes truth, the media is biased against PS3. M$ pays their wages, and they made a deal with Satan.
Hmm thank God that rest of the world doesn't have same perspective on things as you do "NO-brrrr Partan". I guess every car manufacture is ripping of Motorwagen (first engine car) since they are making...cars...how dare they, they should be "embarrassed" just how you are. Same goes for aeroplanes, building, etc. You makes no sense. If creation does not cross line that is set by patenting product, then there is nothing wrong. Natal is eyetoy 2.0, there is nothing innovative about it. Eyetoy does 3D space reading, it has voice recognition, so there is nothing really new and if you think Milo BS is real, then you need some help. Even if you put every single AI programmer in the world, they wouldn't be able to create AI so intelligent to actually understand your words and what you really mean. That is why Milo is BS but you will see soon.
Reggie obviously hasn't seen the 2004 video of the prototype for Sony's motion controller. Why should they be flattered that Sony had the idea before them? All Sony has done is saw that there is an interest in motion gaming and decided to bring it out.
I really don't think Nintendo is remotely threatened or even care if Move is going to be better. Sony is offering Move as an OPTIONAL peripheral and it's no way going to overthrow the Wii. The Wii has dominated the consoles this gen. Case closed, nothing will catch up to its sales. The only reason Sony is following is because they see the success of Wii. The only reason MS is following is because they see how strong the casual market is. Nintendo being "flattered" is of course a nice jab at Sony, but as a gamer I only want Move to be cheap and effective in my gaming experience. As for sales and fame (which is what these companies care about) Nintendo is not under any threat at least any time soon.
The Wii came out in 2006. That means Nin were working on the Wii right after the Gamecube launched in 2001. Lol at the people trying to justify this blatant rip off by saying Sony did it first. Anyways the outrage in here is pretty funny. Hey guys everyone copies from everyone. Only retards thought that Sony never copy and that "they only innovate" lol. Believing crap like that gets people acting like this.
Well no duh that they were working on the Wii before 2006. That does not mean Sony knew what they were doing and even if they did wouldn't you think they would have launched the Move with the PS3??? That's like saying Sony was working on PS3 since the PS2 launched in 2000(which they were) so the 360 copied the PS3 because Microsoft knew about it.... No one is saying Sony doesn't copy, they are saying they did not copy the Wii. They just saw its success and brought out what they were already working on, the reason they did not launch it on the PS2 is they did not think anyone would be interested. They were wrong, that is all. You tried to make a good argument out of the knowledge you knew, but you just used a weak excuse that fell flat. The fact is no one knows what each company knew so speculation like that does not work.
"The games Sony showed us for Move are exactly the same as Wii Sports Resorts, but worse" Including SOCOM, right? No, sir, Move will actually have games that hardcore gamers give a crap about which Nintendo has exceedingly failed at doing.
@The first dude talking crap Bungie strikes again with a new ACCOUNT, What a surprise...Get a Life [email protected] and stop talking about something you don't know nothing about, let the people that is interested in this Motion-Trend alone... @the guy who said the PS-Move Games are exactly the same as Wii Sports, GUY, You're totally Right, graphics are By FAR better, but the "concept" is the same: http://i42.tinypic.com/2rgn...
Note to Nintendo, Don't be. Sony has been researching this since long before the Wii, but they didn't want to half ass it like you did. So they waited until it was ready.
Nintendo shouldn't be flattered. Its Sony's way of saying "Hey Nintendo. You've come up with a good idea, but we can impliment it so much better!"
Flattered by how Nintendo used the idea that Sony's been working on since the late 1990s...
Nintendo are probably laughing at Sony too, not only did they blatantly copy them they done a terrible job at it too. No motion control in the nunchuk, a wireless nunchuk meaning more charging and not being able to have 4 players with a remote and analogue stick, not having everything together (need a cam, a remote and nunchuk, and the starter kit doesnt even include all of them), loads of games that rely on a single player to have TWO remotes etc The idea was obviously rushed out and not thought through and will likely blow up in their faces.
microsoft blatantly copied sony on natal.the eyetoy was on ps2,natal was actually shown running on ps2, http://www.youtube.com/watc... and this video is way before microsoft announced natal: http://www.youtube.com/watc... the video is 3 years old.but you neglected to see that huh? more charging?so not having to buy batteries or charge kits like 360 controllers or wii controllers is a BAD THING?i have 4 usb ports on my ps3.don't see the problem.especially when they have these things being sold called "usb hubs." show me a picture of the ps3 starter kit being sold today? show me games that require 4 move controllers and 4 sub-controllers on the market? actually,show me any GDC games shown this week that are on the market? natal has been shown with glitches since E3 last year.and recently received a downgrade in chips.....must not be well thought out and rushing to market.
Dam Apocalypse Shadow not only did you own Omega the noob you stomped him into the ground. What people fail to see is this is the 1st time that Move has been shown since E3 it's been kept in the shadows what they showed was pretty much what allot of people expected to see a fighting game, a golf game, some fun arcade type games everything that what this "Move" was ment for. When one company shows respect to another it shows class something certain people in this industry don't have. No matter what Move or Natal do they will always be in the shadow of the Wii and anything that either of the 2 systems can do to 1up the Wii will definitely be a challenge.
Well, just for the record I'm laughing at your two bubbles too ;) You've earned to two bubbles.. So obviously anything you write is to be laughed at.
just one more bubble
LOL Comparing a 2D Web Cam to Natal is like comparing a Big Wheel to a Ferrari. Give it up! You guys are wearing holes in those same YouTube videos you keep posting but it still hasn't changed the fact that you are proving nothing and actually proving to the contrary. Hey look I can be just as stupid.. The EyeToy is just a rip-off of the DreamEye. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Sony couldn't even come up with its own name! LOL
Same way how Sony are laughing at Microsoft for only now, releasing tech that Sony's has had running and commercialized for 5 years.
Why should Sony be laughing at Microsoft? Natal has generated a lot of positive press, and numerous developers have posed an interest in Natal. Sony failed to capitalize with the EyeToy.
have u forgotten that there are 36 dev's that wanna make games for the PSMOVE. What is ur problem you really need to grow up. You have so much negativity. I don't understand where it all comes from, everybody copies someone in this industry, yes even Nintendo have copied people because motion control has all been done before the Wii came out. Your also forgetting every single sport game that is out kind of takes the same form as the sports games seen in Wii Resort. Ur acting like its never been done god all sports games look the same they've just been improved. And there have been a lot of positive views on PSMOVE why because those people are smart and they understand great technology when they see it and they understand what pre alpha means there not idiotic like you there will gamers. Bloody hell when i have kids i'm gonna make sure they don't end up like u.
Ah... so much Love For natal and the xbowners didn't see anything more than a DODGE-BALL Game, there are some guys that are so Glad and Blind-following the Hype-Machine that is natal, these guys don't even care about the thing or if it [or WILL] WORK PROPERLY, just hyping the thing More And More just cuz, "hey... is a product made by my Console of Choice Manufacturer" What is going to happen if all of these dudes go and buy this thing and it end up not being like it was supposed to be, they'll just SHUT UP or will complain about and say something like, "hey, MAYBE Next Time I'll WAIT to see how it Really Works, INSTEAD of HYPING IT SO MUCH..." As GAMERS, The Best Thing These Guys can do is Just Wait to See The Final Product, instead of HYPE/DEFEND/LOVE IT cuz is a Product For The Console Of Choice
we are wearing it out because they are facts being presented.if the facts are wrong,please enlighten us to the truth. better yet,since you say natal is BEYOND eyetoy/pseye capabilities.... SHOW us VIDEO of natal doing these beyond current camera capabilities.i would like to see your links to prove its power. but you know you and the rest have nothing to show.why?microsoft has shown NOTHING. a whole year to show no games.a whole year to show no features.a whole year to shut the nay sayers up on accuracy.not only that,microsoft didn't even show up at the developer's conference. HOW DO YOU NOT SHOW UP TO A DEVELOPER'S CONFERENCE? but natal will be AMAZING right?right?
Move: "sup" Wiimote: "Why, how amusing. Sony wants to try to take over our market. Those fools, we could crush them now if we wanted to, but where is the fun in that?"
they'll also be flattened by the Playstation Move
"uh huh.. heres the problem to many toasters" (turns of switch)
that was a random comment of mine
while everyone seem to be complaining, Am I the only one rejoicing that, I get to have a wii HD, and a Playstation ps3, plus Blu-ray and DVD, and a hardrive that is 120 gig on ONE system, for 300 buck!!!! ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!!!!!!!!!!
Couldn't agree more.. I was thinking for buying a Wii last week, now after seeing the move, i am totally sold sorry Nintendo maybe next time.
Everyone did copy Sony See http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Why is it barely being released?
called being on youtube and having a video copy of it that isn't clear.
3 Links says all http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
in the third vid: I sure like wacking balls! That made me crack up so much :)
Sony is going to show Nintendo how to do motion controls the right way. They've been working with motion controls since the PS2 and the Eyetoy. They know more about this than Nintendo does.
They should be scared.
A lot of hate. Means this thing will get more sales. Keep with the hate then.
It's good for everyone :)
Wii developers can now start experimenting with the PS3, and thus increase sales.
Remember when the ps3 launched all I remember was nitty & 360 fans saying ps3 is doomed, ps3 has no games, ps3 cost too much, ps3 has no rumble, ps3 will never have a game that looks better then gears of war, ps3 showcases only CGI videos there is no way the ps3 can have killzone 2 like graphics, ps3 doesnt have squat on playstation network to download, ps3 home will fail,and I can go on & on but look how all that has been answered by sony and still to this day I cant believe how BLIND some of u are still trying to find anything to low blow the ps3. U blind morons are as blind as jesus is own ppl who crucified him even though he showed them proof that he was the son of our heavenly father. U guys are that blind & I feel bad for u because u too ignorant to let go of your precious console of choice even when u, yourself know the ps3 is the best console with the best software linep out of the 3. I can admit that with PRIDE even as an owner of all 3 consoles.
Oh, what a world we live in, and to tell you the truth Sony can steal Nintendo's market, but I'm not sure if Microsoft can steal Sony's. Sony is in a better position than any other company to dominate, the question isn't if, but when? If you can't beat them, join them then lead them, lol. In the end I see Sony rising where Nintendo keeps falling, and with Microsoft, their success is like a coin toss, it's always by fluke. It only does everything.
It just needed to be streamlined and more accurate. Nintendo should work on making the nunchuck wireless and putting built-in lithium ion batteries instead of requiring removable (and expensive) batteries.
Nintendo is now sounding like the market leader that they are...good for them. They have come a long way since last gen and the Gamecube... Nintendo shocked the industry with its massive success this gen... Its going to be interesting to see how things shake out next gen... Maybe Microsoft will surprise everyone and be market leader...doubtful...but it would be interesting if it happened.
Do you agree with this quote? -End statement
nintendo and sony aren't trash talkers they praise each other. ms instigates all the time
Was a simple idea for PS2, which needed work(mo-cap etc) and was upgraded in diff ways and hence move. I don't hate on it, i've got a wii as well. And just bought sonic racing for it, just as good as mario kart imo. I just like games.
Ms copied the dualshock button layout and just moved the anologue stick so they wouldn't get sued
ok 1st of all Ps move is better than wiimote and probably only 40% bought the wii plus. 2nd a retard said the eye and move is not bundled 2gether. HES WRONG! 3rd PS EYE CAN BE USED AS A MIC. 4th MORE GAMES WILL COME FOR MOVE AND WILL LEARN TO USE THE FUNCTION. 5th PSMOVE ISNT EVEN RELEASED YET! NO WII FAN EVER PLAYED IT THUS SHOULD NOT JUDGE! 6th PS MOVE WITH PS3 LOOKS BETTER ACTUAL ONLINE AND WITH PS3 POWER IT CAN MAKE GAMES WELL SEE IN 3 MONTHS WE WILL LAUGH
Looks like Sony is doing what they do best this gen and that's copy others. Have they brought any innovation this gen???? Stealing SIMS, Achievements, and now this. Their used to be a time when Sony was the leader of innovation. Well that was a long time ago.
I'd ever see this after the bashing the Wii got...oh well. I thought Sony was Saint.
He should be given most of the credit for all this motion detection stuff.
