IGN: Kinect vs. Wii After a full year of waiting since the original unveiling of the Xbox 360's in-development Project Natal, Microsoft's newly-renamed "Kinect" device has now had a more official reveal -- the look is complete, the branding's in place, and, most importantly, we now know several actual games that we'll be playing on the new peripheral. So, of course, it's time to begin the inevitable comparisons.

The story is too old to be commented.

Natal vs Eyetoy would be a better comparison
along with Move vs Wii.

I cant believe what a bunch of pathetic liers they are, saying they were impressed by MS press!? Are you serious!? If Sony or Nintendo had press like that jokes would be flying left and right. But 300 bucks gift tend to influence your judgment. i called it yesterday that that will happen, i guess i was correct.

@ lamback Were you impressed if not care to state y?.

Iamback2323d ago (Edited 2323d ago )


If you are MS fan and say you were impressed by MS press they you are lying to yourself and me. Xbox 360 is synonyms to hardcore gamers, their press conferences have always been about hardcore gamers, at least 80% of content, this time roles were reversed. Ok lets start. COD game, cool that was good way to start. Yes it is multiplat game but they have 1 month on maps so ok a lot of people play that. Then Rising, probably best demo and that is also multiplat, and we will probably see a lot more on Sony show, maybe even Move support which makes it version to have and even without that MGS fans are on PS3.
Then there was Gears 3, great demo, Fable 3 borring cg trailer, some god of War game from Crytek, trailer was lame used real actors, we learned nothing. Then basically boring stuff begins. SUre some of those xbl/kinect stuff were cool, like voice thing but those are not games. Rest of Kinect presentation was horrible. Bunch of Wii and Eye Toy "me too" projects but i guess you think thats cool. Compared to last year pace was bad, show was much slower and targeted towards casuals.
Difference between Sony fans and MS is that SOny fans would say it was trash, MS fans like anything and everything from MS and just keep on taking it you know where.
They knew they had bad press so to affect judgment they gave free bribe 300$ gifts to every journalist in audience. Embarrassing thing to do. I promose you if Sony did that there would be an outrage. Things like that should be banned. We saw product of that IGN was really impressed which boggles my mind, considering those same guys are so hardcore and trashed Wii and motion games for years but now all of a sudden they want to "Jump in".
Dont ever again ast me to explain my self. I never write BS based on bias, i call it as i see it, SOny, MS or Nintendo.

@Iamback: an IGN editor probably makes ~$60k a year, you think $300 is going to sway their opinion? What are you 12?

Iamback2323d ago

I guess you are 12 and dont understand how human psychology works.

UltraNova2323d ago (Edited 2323d ago )


Dont try to downplay MS's cheap shot yesterday. IGN editors might make that much money but they are still gamers like us. And gamers will always be excited and ready to play dumb when they get a brand new console for free.

Why do they sent 500 bucks worth of memorabilia with each test code ? Because they are a charity? Bottom line is that MS hits bellow the waistline openly and shamelessly and always gets a free pass to go with it.

jsx2322d ago (Edited 2322d ago )

@Iamback, UltraNova: Wow you two are seriously deluded. Journalists always get free copies to review, look at Walt Mossberg, the dude gets every gadget months before they come out. That's the way it is and will always be.

"Bottom line is that MS hits bellow the waistline openly and shamelessly and always gets a free pass to go with it."

WTF, kid, you're a total moron. Your whole comment is lacking any sign of intelligence. How is giving away your product to event attendees a "cheap shot?" A cheap shot at who, exactly? What a bunch of ignorant children on this site.

UltraNova2317d ago

@JSX Pull up your pants and stop going in reverse bended over like that with MS behind you closing in..

MS have gone from having one of the best E3 conference last year to frankly one of the worst and most embarrassing I have ever seen and I have seen each one since 2002.

Cannot see how bowling can work correctly on Kinect I feel its gonna be frustrating without something in your hand. That being said it certainly looks nice.

Its been a great day i was stoked with what ms had to offer , getting in bed with crytek very smart move as was it a great day to see SDF in full action defense mode tearing everything down i love it sutch a laugh its the best.

evrfighter2323d ago

im not gonna lie.

it was entertaining. Only apple and sony fanboys can be that amusing. I personally am not intrigued by Kinect or Move though. If I wanted gimmick gaming I would have bought a 3d setup for my pc years ago.

Imperator2323d ago

Can you tell me exactly what you liked so much about it?

Was it the demos of games that had ALREADY been revealed?

Perhaps it was the very laggy Kinect interface and the very annoying presentation of Video chat...

Was it the demonstration of MS' various Wii/PS3 ripoff titles?

I simply can't understand why anyone would actually defend MS. This was far worse than Sony's 2006 conference or any of Nintendo's conferences. Just terrible.

Ilikegames762323d ago

impressed with the way the in-game character in the Star Wars game was moving the player with a little noticeable lag.

fooltheman2323d ago

and movement was on rails...^^

TheAwesomessMan2323d ago

NOw let us say first the is ahead BY ALOT! So if Microsoft is gonna do this they better step up will big. Because Nintendo is just chilaxing with their money. And just cause you gave away free xboxes doesn't mean you made a dent in the Wiis sales. But Microsoft are some gangsters or something see what they do they tryna widen the WW or NA gap between them n Sony. By releasing the system that early. They tallied how many they gave away to keep track. Haha Microsoft I see you.
