SCE Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida has given his comments on the competition for PlayStation Move: the Xbox 360's Project Natal, and the Nintendo Wii.
Edit: oh yeah my bad, I think Move and Natal will both sell well but personally both are nothing special, or I haven't seen anything outstanding yet
Did you even bother reading the title? move competition
ain't that cute! lol someone give it a bottle maybe it will go back to it's Mama or the Old Folks Home! which ever way it came from.
with maturity, unlike some opposing company's pr *cough*greenburg*cough* "NANA NANA boo boo, we are better than u,u" i agree with him tho, i am curios also e3's gonna be hot!
Even the motion plus is 1:1, the Wii is so lastgen. Bu bu bu but the salesss!!! The Wii #1. You are saying a ford is better than a lamboghini, not that ford is a bad car.
Agreed, I bought Red Steel 2 brand new so I can get the Wii motion plus bundle, yeah it can do more with motion plus, but its not really a giant leap. The Move seems to be very accurate, and it looks as if though using a sword will be alot more natural feeling then the Wii motion plus, If anything it really is just a waggle controller, and it sucked so I sold it.
Yeah like Keven butler was so mature with the pew pew pew. Guess you need to stop talking about greenberg if butler is doing the same bs PR ok.
But its sad that you're comparing the two. And thers only 1 "pew pew pew" to about 20-30 anti-sony comments from Greenberg.
Let me guess? He loves playing with his kids on Wii Sports...
We don't know much about Natal so it's hard to say a lot about it. Therefore, I'm gonna have to agree with Yoshida on this. Hopefully at E3 we'll find out how Microsoft is able to get past the limitations of not having a controller.
Well we'll get a much bigger insight as to what Natal will offer when they announce the full list of launch titles at E3 :)
Wii MotionPlus makes things much more precise.
But it's not mandatory in games.
Not surprised by his stance.
Thanks for the aclaration. I'm still waiting the Survival Horror Exclusive for Move.
Have a Wii and I never play that. Not interested in more motion controls.
Well at least he didn't bashed the competition.
Don't make any bashing comments about the competition unless you're prepared or understand the consequences of putting your foot in your mouth. They really need to stop it with the PS Eyetoy comparison. They are by far light years apart as far as tech goes, just as the controller we now play with today is light years ahead of the one button joystick and two button control pad of the 8-bit era.
I agree! Todays controller is so evolved since the days of d-pad + 2 buttons of the NES controller. Who would have thought I would be able to use these 2 analog, 1 d-pad, 4-6 button and 2 trigger controllers. Basically, there are more buttons (inputs) on the controller than my fingers! I see Natal the same way, a huge leap above PS EyeToy that can revolutionize and open that area of gaming up just like the Wii did with Motion Control. ... or it could entirely kill that area.
"I WISH Natal the same way, a huge leap above PS EyeToy that can revolutionize and open that area of gaming up just like the Wii did with Motion Control." Fixed. I think it's safe to say you know about Natal the same we all know: nothing. A ball game is nothing to be excited for just yet. Next E3 is gonna be an interesting one.
Wether people like it or not when, ever nintendo decides to launch its wii hd, Sony already beat them to the punch. And the best part is that if you own a ps3 the upgrade is only 100.00 as opposed to buying a new console.
I already own the Eye camera. I do not intend to pay the full $100 for this. So I should be upgrading for maybe $60 (better not be too much more than that).
And a a Kevin Butler response. (pew! pew-pew!)
He recognizes that the competition exists. I remember when Sony carried on like the others were not there.
That's because at those times, Sony had no competition really.
The PS1 outsold any Nintendo console before it while the PS3 was directly blamed for killing the Dreamcast while soundly beating all else still standing. hard not to get a swelled head with crap like that flying around.
they have already made it known that buttons ARE NEEDED for some games to add more depth and interaction.anyone that has played atari with one button and now using a ps3 controller,knows that buttons added more options.that's just fact from a gamer's standpoint. but he's also saying that sony has done the no controller option.and gamers found different ways to play with eyetoy and it's 10 million plus sales. if sony was doing this on ps2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... variation of the same thing using star wars http://www.youtube.com/watc... was doing fighting like with sega's virtua fighter http://www.youtube.com/watc... and just check any eyetoy play games,you KNOW that sony could do a lot more just with the PSEYE.not even using the MOVE controller.with the controller,sony could recreate the star wars thing above but the saber is now in game if lucas arts makes it. sony can do better than wii while having online.and most of what natal does with media navigation and gaming. E3 should prove most interesting.
is this really news?
I believe Natal can be used with a controller, but what I wonder about is that if Natal is indeed computationally expensive, how will that impact how games are supported? That is, let's say for example Gears 3, Halo: Reach, or whatever game is optimized, polished, and runs like a dream...but what if Natal needs an additional 5% to 15% (I don't believe the giant 1/3 or more figures) of the 360's computational power? What are they going to do about optimizing the game if they need to account for power dedicated to Natal? Do they scale back other things to account for this? Move is less advanced tech, but it also isn't very demanding on system resources. It seems like that could be an issue even if they are using the controller with Natal. This is in addition to the issue that some games are going to need to use a controller. It seems like it would just be a lot simpler for a game like Gears 3 to skip Natal support entirely, which is no good for Natal if it doesn't get support of the key franchises. But it's early, so let's wait and see how Microsoft handles these concerns. Move is something I feel more comfortable about because I've already played games like Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition and Metroid Prime 3 extensively. It works a lot like it does in those games functionally (which was great even on the standard Wiimote), except it's significantly more accurate. I already have a pretty good sense of how it could be applied to Uncharted, Killzone, or other key franchises. Basically, it's going to work a lot like a mouse except you point directly at the screen. Pointing or aiming will be very accurate, which is really nice for shooters and strategy games. I wouldn't use it for games in some other genres, though. I have no interest in using it for God of War, for example. I know there will motion control party games and whatnot for both all 3 consoles, but I'm not that concerned about those.
seems very similar to the ps eye.
Socom 4 on the move that's going to be big imagine the move is more precise then dualshock Sony is awesome I may sound like a fanboy but socom 4 is the biggest game for me.
Anyone who says its soo much more advanced is fooling themselves. Sure its an improvement but its no way a quantum leap all the xbox camp wants you to believe. Till someone shows me different I have no excitement for it. Move however is genius using controler and camera together to become greater than all others. It simply does everything!!!!!!
Relax. "More advanced" doesn't necessarily mean "better in games." Natal being a more advanced and elaborate technology requiring more resources could actually cause compromises in games. That could mean lower quality visuals, physics, ect. But you just can't stand the thought of Natal being more technically advanced, even if that could functionally result in disadvantages.
It's all going to mean nothing if they don't have something more original then hd wii game knockoffs. The biggest problem i see right now is who has the room for all the crap that's gotta go on your tv for all this... i mean now if your a well equipped gamer for this genh you'll have a natal thing, an eyetoy, an sensor bar and a wiispeak mic if you dig MH tri... Someone better invent a clever plastic soultion ASAP.
I can remember a time when all the fanboys were saying that motion control was the downfall of modern gamin as we know it...hhhmmm-now it's the best thing ever..do you guys really think that sony or microsoft really have a snowballs chance in hell to topple Nintendo at this point? That's just silly..if anything it will be a nice niche' market for sony and microsoft to give their fanbase..nothing more..if you guys really think that the doors are gonna burst wide open for these companys and start selling like wii's then you are even stupider than the you sound..your fanboyism is showing..let me show mine and just say Nintendo is crushing you fools and will continue to do so for the forseable future..with the money nintendo is making do you really think they are just gonna sit back and let their competion take control..3ds coming..probably a new wii..first gen motion control from competitors..refined motion plus games from nintendo..i think i'll stick with ninty biatches!
"if you guys really think that the doors are gonna burst wide open for these companys and start selling like wii's then you are even stupider than the you sound" LOL hasnt the Ps3 outsold the Wii for a while now with supposedly being in short supply (unless a major Wii title came out and boosted sales)
NPD for march Hardware Sales: 1. Nintendo DS: 700,800 + 87.8k 2. Wii: 557,500 + 135.5k 3. Xbox 360: 338,400 – 83.6k 4. PlayStation 3: 313,900 – 46.1k 5. PSP: 119,900 – 13.1k 6. PlayStation 2: 118,300 + 16.3k In fact ps3 did worse in march this year then it did march of last year. The shortages must be because ony is starting to manufacture less of them.
I like how he stated his words, everything was done professinally. Lol he attacked them hard with seeming like he did at all. But he sates the truth, only time will tell for Natal.
This may not be on point with this story. From what I have read (of everyone comments) If you have something (own it) it's the best. If you don't (own something * Gaming system) It's trash (Some) people may say "now that PS3 has motion controls, there is no need for Wii HD" Then someone else (someone that owns a Wii) will say what about mario (and other Nintendo only games) The other people (who may own a PS3) will say "That games no good, I don't want to play it" The point I'm trying to make is will this ever end? I got a wii, cuz I like that games you may have (PS3 or 360) cuz thats what you want Now that someone else maybe doing something else is doing does not equal win and the other loss.
I CAN SEE YOU. I CAN HEAR YOU. I CAN UNDERSTAND YOU. I AM YOU. NATAL. B E W A R E ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOAR :-D
The sooner its here, the better!!!
