Microsoft Kinect Makes You Look Silly, But It Will Outsell Move

Let’s face it, Microsoft’s Kinect and Sony’s PlayStation Move are nothing but marketing schemes to stop the Wii’s dominating sells onslaught, and while it may seem as if both Microsoft and Sony are late to the party, both companies will sell their fare share of motion controlled systems, but Kinect is specifically made to sell to the casual gamers, which equals, ‘greater sells’.

The story is too old to be commented.

im getting deja vu. its HDDVD article all over again

lociefer2938d ago

wtf is this, where is my doooomed articles ?

Rumor2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

as a ps3 enthusiast, i think kinect will be ate up by the casuals like a flesh eating disease on Cronos' scrotum. they will see it as some revolutionary tech, completely ignoring the already achieved ps eye. i hope this head start sony has with move gets it going...not to mention, move gmes arent priced at FULL RETAIL

ARBitrator2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

Do you really consider something that you yourself marked as an opinion piece was new or are you posting this sh!t to add to the on going kinect/move spam fest.

Or perhaps you are just doing it for posting credit.

edit: This stupid thing about all of the Kinect videos is the person film this garbage is spending more time show the person playing the game as opposed to showing the actual game.

I'm sure if you point a camera at anyone playing a motion controlled game, they will look silly if the camera is just sitting there facing the gamer. I personally look at the screen when I'm in a room with a gamer unless it's some type of karaoke game like lips or singstar.

At any rate....whatever.

why don't i see the wii-sports is THE BEST GAME EVER INVENTED articles cause it has sold more games that any other game..

ugh.. as the usual the 360 has the best sales and the ps3 has the wider variety with a higher quality story telling and better graphics but less sales, how sales is more important to true gamers i have no idea.

"But It Will Outsell Move"

Because the casuals are going to spend $400+ on the 360 and Kinect, and Halo gamers are going to spend up to $200 for Kinect and Dance Central, right?

Kinect with the family
http://i49.tinypic.com/6dzh...

Or Kinect with Grandpa
http://i49.tinypic.com/4olq...

Or You could be a hardcore gamer and Move with the Playstation Move with its 1:1 Motion Control Precision.

Rumor2938d ago

Doc Sony2938d ago

HAHA, that Schwarzenegger one is priceless.

The Kinect ones are priceless too but in a bad way.

Rocket Sauce2938d ago

Playstation Move will redefine hardcore.

fermcr2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

OMG... Arnold with two dildos in his hands.

Does he have to have two? Isn't one enough?

Dragun6192938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

@ Rocket Sauce
Yes, Playstation Move will redefine Hardcore gaming with Motion Contols along with Kinect.

@ Samus HD
I agree, you could do that too, Can't wait for Metroid: The Other M & Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Just recently got a black Wii bundle for it.

TotalPS3Fanboy2937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

Wait, r u trying to tell me that kinect, a device which lags horribly, and makes u look like a complete dumbass in ur living room with games like kinectimals (nuff said, already but ill continue) and kinect adventures or some shit like that will outsell a device that supports its hardcore and causal games and doesnt lag horribly?

God, maybe ur right. Maybe that girl justin bieber would have all her fans buy kinect.

saint_john_paul_ii2938d ago

dont worry, we will ship that girl Bieber to Best Korea....

Blacktric2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

WILL SELL MOVE? Hahahhaha never lol'd so hard. One is aimed for every gaming crowd out there, supports the same count of gamers as the other for around the same price maybe even lesser and tracks one to one. The other only aims casual crowd and only lets you play casual games and maybe silly side games in some hardcore games, supports two players out of the box and thats it. Now which will sell more? Microsoft sold Xbox 360 as the console with most hardcore games on it for 5 years. And now some writer from an unknown website starts talking about how Kinect will outsell Move. IT WON'T HAPPEN. STOP DREAMING...

Blacktric2938d ago

"WILL SELL MOVE" part should be "WILL OUTSELL MOVE" so sorry about that.

lelo2play2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

Honestly... with Move you look like you have a dildo in your hand. Some people are going to have very strange ideas with Move.

For hype meter (or sales)... it looks like Kinect has an advantage over Move, since the casuals apparently are more interested in Kinect.

As for me... not interested in Kinect, nor Move.

lace2938d ago

When I have lady friends over that's what I'm hoping for. They will try my Move out, get curious, and be amazed at the 1:1 precision. Glow baby glow.

TotalPS3Fanboy2937d ago

With Kinect, you will look like you're tickling a tiger's balls. So that doesn't look so good either.

vhero2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

@MaximusPrime nail meet head!
@lelo2play - all those millions of wii owners disagree with you. Most of those owners are ex ps2 players and have been waiting for playstation to do something like the wii and now they have. PS3 will get a lot of wii owners switching for better graphics and still casual gameplay they are used to and know how to work straight away as they are used to it from the wii. Kinect is completely different and the 2 player limit is the killer.

lelo2play2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

Maybe what you say is true... we will see in the future.

As for limit... what is the limit of numbers of players for Move. Can it even support 2 active players at the same time? I don't think Sony announced the player limit of Move. All the demonstrations are with one player with one (or two) Move.

Bigpappy2937d ago

2 players on one console is only controvesial because M$ showed ads with it suporting 4 people sitting. The truth is no one on N4G knows for sure what Kinect can or can not do, and the 2 player active spec for full body control only serves as a talking point for fanboys who had Natal doomed to begin with.

How many games do you play, where you have 4 people on the same TV? Seriously? Thats why we have Xbox Live and Sysyem link. I think too much space would be required for full body motion controll any way. The only way to use connect with 4 players, would be sitting. M$ is yet to show games with people sitting. There is a lot to be revealed about Kinect. Relax.

tinybigman2937d ago

Of looking like an idiot when I'm playing my games. So M$ can keep natal and the shovelware to themselves. I didn't buy shovelware for my wii and I'm not going to start now.

Ill spend whatever the cost is for natal on games that I want to play for each of my 3 systems.

Godmars2902938d ago

Why do I get the feeling that if 100 Moves are sold versus 200 Kenects, we'll hear about ones outselling the other?

Why does this stupid argument even exist when most serious gamers consider MC to be a joke and waste of time?

Forbidden_Darkness2938d ago

I'm waiting for a 'Ballerina' game for Kinect, that would be totally hilarious to watch people play.
