Data shows that while most gamers are aware of the new motion controllers, few want to buy them.
they are the ones who plays the most "games" and not gimmicks.
"It should be noted that EEDAR's report is based on traffic data from IGN.com, which tends to skew "hardcore." Purchase intent may be much higher among the more "casual" gamers once they're aware of the products."
It a quote from the article... if anyone bothered to read it. Just like the Wii we can expect these peripherals to be more popular with the casual audience, the ones that don't care so much about gaming as to read online about the upcoming tech gadgets. Personally, I don't care for any of this stuff. I'll stay with my DualShock3, thank you very much.
It's N4G....no matter how much such you try to make of something, it if isn't pro-sony then you're getting attacked here.
because real gamers dont get hyped for motion control fad
any joe schmo would know that kinect is the business
any joe schmo would know that kinect is the business? how about this...any real gamer with a brain in there skull is going to know that "move is the real deal.
It's called Precision and buttons, you need it for those hardcore games that Kinect isn't going to have. I will still use my DS3 controller for sure, but I can see the Move taking over for some of my hardcore games I saw it used during Socom4 and I'm like it a lot! It is showing a lot of potential for Casual and Hardcore gaming. Bring on the Playstation Move!
And what business is that? The business of doing a complete 180 and ignoring the people who got you to where you are?
You just gotta love when all gamers come together to unanimously agree that something is horrible, in this case Kinect. Lol.
sounds like a serious disorder... is the guy in your avatar a joe schmo? disgusting...
"It should be noted that EEDAR's report is based on traffic data from IGN.com" .....lol.
So this means nothing. This could be skewed toward people looking for a train wreck for all we know. I've always been curious about the use of web metrics in market research. I have some validity concerns. If there's been negative articles on the Kinect in IGN, what does that say? I'm sure Microsoft is doing this, but I'd hope some of these companies are doing some honest to goodness survey research.
MS & Sony just want a piece of Nintendo's pie. IMO, they are way too late. Most people that would want one of these products probably already own a Wii. Forget this crap and bring more AAA games pls. EDIT: I'll play Killzone 3, etc. with the DualShock...
@ Luzce I have a Wii and I have a PS3. RE4 with wiimote was great, Super Paper Mario was great, Metroid Prime 3 was awesome. So it's not only about motion controls - it's about games for these controls. As long as good core games continue to out for Move (as KZ3, Ape Escape, RE5, Sorcery and so on), I will support Move.
because there's just no reason to buy them yet. maybe we'll see when the 2nd wave of software hits but as of right now, forget it.
It still cost nearly $200 for the entire move set as well >_>
PS Eye ($40) + Move ($50) + DS3/SIXAXIS (Included w/Ps3) = $90 There aren't any games that require two Move controllers at launch.
"There aren't any games that require two Move controllers at launch" I'm curious, are we saying that the lack of party games is going to help or harm the Move's chances at mainstream commercial success?
@^^^ There is not such thing like "lack of party games", Sony is bundling Sport Champion and there are some others. I think Cows means you can play all move games with only one control.
"I think Cows means you can play all move games with only one control." Play a party game with one controller?
Game will eventually use it. Its not like you spending $200 at launch, but over time. The money one spends on a camera like Yerbouti, is still money spent. Its not like theres a rebate if you bought a camera a year ago. >_>
For the newly minted casuals,...yeah? For me it isn't a problem. It is going to be just $50 for me - I have a camera and a dual shock already. Okay it is more like $100 if Heavy Rain requires two Move controllers.
The video I saw for Heavy Rain using Move, only showed the person using 1 controller.
The only reason I'd buy Move is for the Time Crisis game. And even then we're talking low priority. Though what happened to that flashlight/horror game they showed off last year?
Yes, I'm waiting for that too. http://img130.imageshack.us... Also, Socom 4 looks incredible playing with Move, besides Zipper said Move Players literally owned the DS3 Players in a test they did in a match. Killzone 3, Sorcery, RE5, RUSE, Heavy Rain and more is making Move worth to buy.
It's Alan Fake. j/k The Move would lend itself brilliantly to Alan Wake's game play. Microsoft should have given Kinect a controller. Hell with the idea behind Kinect. The idea's stupid. Sony wizened up and gave the camera a controller, now the every FPS out there can be positioned as the killer app for Move. Kinect has dance games and interactive fitness games - either of which could be guitar game big - but very little for the hardcore.
Well I am waiting it for socom4, timecrisis ,. even Killzone,.. if it behaves more like a standard mouse in that game,.I will pwn everybody,.. Funny enough even that fighting and table tennis looks dope,.. You know how much fun it is on wii,.. This is 1:1,.. damn,..This thing really has potential ,.. Maybe we finally get a decent RTS !! and we have the entire third party wii games lineup UPrezed,.. and some are not shit,.. That DS:E wee get with dead Space2 for free,.. is a really good shooter guys,..
the move is better than having a standard mouse, as you are holding it as you would hold a real gun in real life if you use the ps move gun attachment, no matter what pc geeks say ps move is more natural than using a mouse and we have the killer way of moving around instead of using a keyboard which is awkward btw i have a pc and a ps3 and i have played on shoters on the wii and pc, and even the wii feels more natural than the pc, so the move will be even better
I agree with you,.. Though wii's precision is a bit dodgy at times,.. it feels better,.. and there is another point,.. why it is better,.. It has no surface resistance,.. Try writing with your mouse,..With Move you can actually write readable text,.. Kinda thinking of booting resi4 on the wii again ,..
I'm passing on both but I hope each enjoys great success.
Any chance we can wait until the motion devices actually come out before we start wildly speculating? Of course data will change once they come out? Why are these people paid to state the obvious? And who are most gamers? Did you ask the people with PS3s? Did you ask people with 360? How many is this 'most gamers?' 10 people? 20 people? 10 million? there are almost as many PS3 owners as 360 owners so how could a few million tip the scales so far? Where do i get a job like this to state the obvious and get paid
i heard that most of the Move game will cost $39.99 and most of the (Kinect4) games will cost $59.99 Can someone name (1) kinect4 game that is worth $59.99. i can name alot of Move Game that are worth $59.99 and $39.99. K3,HR and ect.... the sorcery game looks like steal for $39.99....
i'm getting move because of 'sorcery', that game looks awesome.
