I ultimately purchased both of them, though, and now I can see the benefits they have to offer. People often say that Nintendo is the leading force in innovation in the world of gaming, and that Sony, Microsoft, and the like all wait to see what they are working on before they make their move. At this particular point in time, that is starting to seem like a very true sentiment. Sony’s Move and Microsoft’s Kinect almost definitely would not have existed without the Wii’s success. It’s as simple as that, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing."
