Amazon Opens PlayStation Move and Kinect ‘Stores’

Last October, Amazon.com opened up a 'PlayStation Network' store which offered game codes that could later be digitally downloaded on the PlayStation Network. It seems that this unique store on Amazon has had some success, as the world's largest online retailer has now opened 'stores' for the PlayStation Move and Microsoft's Kinect.

I guess Sony and MS teamed up with Amazon to make sure the average consumer knows about PlayStation Move and Kinect.

This should help any consumer confusion these new "controllers" are going to cause.

And to save a few bucks for being an early adopter! Well, if you're on the Move side of things, anyway - looks like any Kinect games on disc are priced a full $60!

I wonder if Kinect games will sell as well if they stick with the $60 price tag, compared to Move games at the $40 price tag.

Kinect games priced at full probably because MS is still "tasting the market" to see what demand will be for the current prices they set and the fact that we are 4 months away from release.

PS Move needs to get their @ss in gear soon with advertisements though, since they got 2 months to release....

Thats awesome that Move games are priced at $40. Makes for a bigger collection for me. xD Im actually kind of suprised that Move games are the cheaper games while Kinect is more expensive. I thought for sure Microsoft was going to charge as little as possible for the casual games.

I took a look at both stores and a couple of things stand out.

a)the Move, sports champion, and PS eye bundle for "under $100" seems like a good deal for the average consumer as far as content goes.

b) Amazon's Pre-order guarantee has Kinect priced at $149.99 (which isn't official) but if the price changes you get it for the lowest price. So if you are interested in Kinect you might want to pre-order just in case MS releases it for more than $150. I doubt it though but...

Also... take a look at the differences between the two stores. There are a whole lot of games for Move, but not much for Kinect. Thus far, what actual games have been announced for Kinect beyond Kinectimals and Joy Ride? I wonder if Microsoft are saving some big announcements for closer to launch time, or if this is really all that they have so far to talk about. The dashboard integration is kind of cool, but does anyone really want to pay $150+ just so they can talk to their Xbox and tell it to play a movie?

only 2 game for Kinect; Comparing unofficial pricing; Bigger collection of games (Move releases in 8 weeks).

Maybe you sould have a look at their pre-order charts to see how each is doing.

Spin, spin, spin!
