Less than 3 weeks away from E3 2010, and the primary focus appears to be on the motion control systems for Microsoft and Sony. We have “Natal” on the Microsoft side and “Move” on the Sony side. Which motion system will impress the gamers the most?
with natal the potential is there, but i havent seen anything but the red all game. i will reserve my judgement untill e3.
fishing for hits?
"PS Move & Natal Square Off. Which One Will Impress The Most?" I'll let ya know when I test out both at my local Bestbuy:) @boysenberry- 100% agree. I have no interest in buying either as well. @sxpacks- Thank u for putting ur ignorance on display :/
MOVE LOOKS BETTE THAN NATAL. @droidsmasha stfu!
Expensive peripherals are fail.
Well, at this point it's Sony. They've shown various both casual and hardcore that effectively use the PS MOve. Ms has only shown a game about hitting a red ball. Anyone can see the huge difference.
Natal needs like 6 ft of clearance for it to work properly, that alone will render it useless in many Non-American homes.
That has not been officially confirmed. Reported yes, confirmed no. I could very easily say that PS Move requires 2 beers and a pretty lady to work properly but that wouldn't be confirmed and remarkably untrue ...and slightly disappointing.
it might not be exactly 6 ft, but i could imagine its somewhere near that number. adds to the factor that some people might have their setup in their bedroom (like me), i don't even have 3 ft clearance. whoever thinks it will work as well as physical devices like the Move or the Wiimote are kidding themselves.
Key term is, works well. We are all still waiting to see if natal will work well.
I can't recall hearing of online response times especially after seeing vids... natal even worse lag wise and with the lack of dedicated servers how evenly matched can opponents be? Or will these games NOT have online components?
How could you even start to compare games when you know next to nothing about Natal or its games. Then we have the official Natal specialist (Game13a13y). He said we will need to clear 6ft of space to use Natal. Thank you for your for your hands on preview ... not! Anyway E3 is 2 weeks away. I prefer to wait and see what their both have to offer. I don't want to ASSume anything, or I may be made to like the author and "the Natal Specialist".
It's been pretty clear there is no competition between Move and Natal. This should be Wiimote vs Move not Natal vs Move. The industry has given Move a nuke warm welcome as where Natal has been praised seen as a revolution by people with a better understanding about what the two techs based on hands on experience. I trust their input over Sony fanboys hoping Natal sucks, mentioning the two techs as if they're going to be going toe to toe or are on the same level.
Lol, natal eye toy exist since...eye toy. Move is the only controler for real gamers (but natal, as an optimised eye toy, is probably fun too, for casuals : like wiimote)
I say Move will have more promise. Older games like resident evil will be patched to be able to be used with move as well as Wii ports and possibly some Natal ports also. Next gen, console will most likely have a camera and motion controller out the bos along with maybe some other added control option (maybe lcd or touchpad ?). So move seems to be the best option in terms of potential but as usual it will come down to killer games to determine it's importance.
How about seeing actual games for them before asking that question?
The Score So far: Natal: Ricochet Move: Wii Sports Resort Clone -Gladiator, tennis, bow and arrow...etc Lights Out - Mini Games - move party, shooter, ...etc Socom 4 Move has the advantage, because it showed more than wii clones
You forgot Ape Escape PS3, which is bigger than Natal's entire library combined so far. Microsoft hasn't showed anything and the $150 price tag isn't helping.
Resident Evil 5, Little Big Planet 1 and 2 for Move. Ape Escape, and the new Survival Horror FPS for Move: http://img232.imageshack.us...
It doesn't count until somebody outside of Sony/MS gets their hands on it. LBP and Resident Evil 5 did not get a hands on by the press. So although they are coming, they don't count yet So that means Natal gets 1 more: Burnout Paradise. So score is 2 to 4: Advantage Sony At this early stage quantity matters. Once you get a large library of games, the audience will follow. This was the case when 360 first came out. It had a MUCH bigger library than PS3.
Most of those Move games are the same as the ones on Wii :-/ Natal has a lot of potential.
The one who have the better games will.
I havent seen anything that would make me even offer an intelligent opinion yet question is just premature and a way to start a fanboy argument
as long as i can play with a controller like I've been doing since the first time i played a home console
Bump this article for the sake of this website's dignity (or whats left of it).
It's all about the software. Sony's non support of the PS Eye so far this generation has me skeptical. E3 2010 might be the best ever.
Neither, they both fail. I refuse to play games by moving my body parts especially my peni...
As of now, I have "ZERO" interest in both.
Bring me Killzone 3 news.
I feel like I'm obligated to send you a copy of Team Fortress 2 so you can experience what a good FPS plays like.
Well murderdolls is right about one thing Team Fortress's multiplayer is much better than any consoles have to offer.
so your saying killzone is not a good fps. just because you dont like doesnt mean it aint good. i hate gears, but it doesnt mean it sucks.
Move is purely a game based motion system, it lacks the ability to expand beyond much else, unless they look into more software solutions. Natal is much more expandable because it can become a "move" with an accesory. This allows for way more expandability over time. Sorry but the move is just a over-bloated Wiimote! In a sense that is ok, there will be some games that will be fun using it, but Natal will also function as a way to interact with the console. Its just a much richer piece of hardware, but if the software is not there then neither will be relevant.
are you forgetting that move is using the ps eye as well? the ps eye can do what natal can and the controllers are for added precision
From everything you said in your post, this stands out the most; "but if the software is not there then neither will be relevant". Keep in mind that Sony owns a ton of dev studios & can influence them to create (& control the level of quality) the software you are talking about!
more impressive.. lets see ricochet dodgeball game or play socom 4, lbp2, boxing game... right now its move, by far. edit* not saying im interested in buying any of the 2, just calling it how it is.
For me move cause I have ps3 and I heard resident evil 5 is going use move and I'm never getting a 360 so idc for natal.
why ? socom 4 can be played with it ! an some other cool games. ....Natal ?.....that red ball game is as hardcore as it gets for it. lol
I have both systems and will more than likely not buy a Move or a Wave.
"I can shoot with that? wha?, "MOVE" %ITCH, GET OUT THE WAY!!" Now I finally can make use of that new but dusty playstation 3 I've had sitting there for viewing bluray movies.
The natal "wave" thingy? I love my Xbox 360. Been on live for years...but when xbox division hides something better than sony, im usually sceptical. E3 should answer all questions...well most questions on microsofts part.
To be honest, I could care less. The only reason I'm in this thread is because my mother wants the Move so I'm finding out as much as I can about it. So far, it seems like Sony is much more willing to show off some games as opposed to MS with Natal. PS: Don't bother to nag me about why my mom wants the Move. She wants something like the Wii that can keep her active. I could tell my mom to get Natal, but it's all about feedback. All she'll have is something on screen to keep her occupied. Other than the on-screen character movements, there's nothing that will have her feeling like she's making those things happen. If she wants to pretend like she's punching someone, she can look in the mirror and do it. No vibration, same effect (without the lag). My step-father wants some games like Heavenly Sword and God of War III, plus they both need a Blu-Ray player (I gave them some movies to start a collection) so getting them a PS3 with Move is a no-brainer. Oh yeah, baby.... two birds.... one stone :D
both look terrible
i think both will just fade off and all this hype will to as soon as there both released. there both going to be good, but they both dont deserve the hype. natal is a 50/50 it can bomb or be good. there is no middle.
IF natal proves it gots hardcore going for it then I will say NATAL but if it doesnt then MOVE instatly wins since we already have seen hardcore titles.
Wii is doing quit well without the hard core. The hard core on 360 love the 360 controller for their games. Saying hardcore gamers have no interest in casual games is also inaccurate.
So if Natal gets "harcore games" it wins automatically even though Move already has that? Your logic is flawed. Natal bounces balls Move has Fighting Games, Socom 4, Killzone 3, LBP2, Resident Evil 4, Some Survival Horror game, ect @Bigpappy Are you retarded? The wii has more hardcore exclusives than the 360 does like Metroid/Fire Emblem/Monster Hunter Tri/ect And most "Hardcore" gamers could care less about more "casual" games after a few minutes of playing them, like wii sports.
I Fail to see why so many need to criticize MS for not revealing all of its software for Natal of course they want to keep it under wraps for a better time in terms of Sony i still consider move a joke and its existence is only due to Microsoft's strides at the casual market
How the 360 fanboys are saying they both will suck now. All Sony need to do to sell me on Move is show me that Socom4 with Move is just as precise and easy to control as a DS3.
My money is on PS Move. I honestly don't think Natal will be as compelling as people think. Besides, I am a core gamer not a casual gamer, therefore Sony's Move suits me better than Microsoft's Natal.
Move (advanced wireless wiimote + eye toy) + 3D = inovation and win if people are less dumb than i think.
With MS being so secretive about Natal, I cant see how anyone can say "Move (or Natal) is better!". Sony seems to have been giving up the goods sooner about Move,but that just means E3 wont fill as many unanswered Q's about it. But what Natal's all about is alot of speculation at this point. Cant people just wait a few more weeks to see how good (or bad) it is?
I'm trying to figure out how in the heck did PS3 fanboy spin Sony's desperate attempt to steal some of Natal's thunder by giving up too much so soon so Natal won't completely drown out the PS3. Notice how no one even talks about Move and the only way PS3 fanboys can get people to pay any attention it, is to match it up with the much talked about Natal. This is the ultimate "ME TOO" from the Sony camp. Microsoft has been talking about their "WORLD PREMIER" for months now yet PS3 fanboys are still trying to exploit that same old spin. bu Bu Bu teh games That talking point is the most retarded damage control I have heard in a while in gaming. How can you say a device is not impressive when it proves it's potential based from the tech/demo, devs and media that have used or worked on it? How can you bash a device based on what software has been shown so far? It's like bashing a PC or a TV that does something great, bashing it because you have not installed a OS on it or don't have HD package lol. It's like a 1080i tv from a no name brand from 3 years ago being championed over a late model Samsung LCD/LED because you've seen the 1080i tv with a cable package vs the HD movie on the Samsung.
It's called a Wii. I don't need another overpriced version of it. Natal might be interesting, but it has a lot to prove.
sry ps3 guys i only have a xbx,damn i wish i had some backup after saying this :-(
One u just simply wave & swing - the other can recognize your body movements, face & voice. Um yea.. waving & swinging my arms sounds waayy more impressive!
sounds like you already have a wii ?
LOL! Move is just a Wii knockoff. Nothing new.
It depends on which one works the best. If one is more responsive then the other then it will impress more. Also it's library will tip the scale in either company's favor
