Now that Microsoft has played its hand and confirmed the price of the Kinect in Australia, gamers can start doing their sums and deciding whether they will invest in the new motion control systems this Christmas.
Playstation Move no doubt.
Microsoft Kinect for sure
Pfft, what do they know.
I probably won't do either one right away! Now that all the E3 excitement of these being announced has passed, I see very little reason to get either one right away! There will be other games to keep me occupied until more games come out for these to justify a purchase. Plus, more importantly, wait for the prices to drop! Either one will be expensive, because Kinect will cost $150, and 2 Move setups will cost around $150 as well!
They're both gimmicks that will lose support after a year.
I will be moving and will be dis-kinected.
due to the fact that it will be natively supported for the pc soon. for move to work i would have to wait for some thirf party to do bluetooth or whatever to make it useable on my pc.
plus a webcam or something and a mod for the cam software
I'll Move with that Move jail house fighting game with 2 controllers. Then resident evil, socom 4, and KZ3 with that add on gun handle. You will truely aim with hand eye co. Instead of useing thumb.
buttons... nuff said
but really? Horse Powerr is praised because he wants the PS Move. He is marked with Intelligent and has 95 agrees and 13 disagrees. Now, Green Ring of Life say he wants the Kinect. In now way is he trying to start a battle or is he trolling. But somehow he gets only 20 agrees and 105 disagrees.
Yea, I am definitely getting Move as well. I already pre-ordered it. It has a great line up of games coming out for it. Where Kinect has a very lame line-up for upcoming games. And for $150 all you get is a camera with 2 player support where you have to stand up for every game. You also receive no force feedback which sucks!
you don't have to stand to play all Kinect games...
actually, at this point you do have to stand. MS has said that games can be coded in the FUTURE to have the ability to play sitting down, but it has been made very public that MS told developers initially to make sure that the gameplay required players to stand. It has been brought up in more articles than I can count.
PS Move, there are better and more games.
Not until they make a game that warrants the purchase. Otherwise I got a useless piece of hardware sitting in my living room.
Move has games for the hardest of core.
HAHAHAAHAHAHA!!! Did you believe that when it was known as Wii???
The wii doesn't have Killzone 3, Socom 4, Little Big Planet 2, GT5, Ruse, Resident Evil 4, Heavy Rain and The Fight
Move AWAY from Kinect... Seriously the line up for Kinect sucks so bad...it's a casual easy cash in screw the hardcore move by MS...The move line up is SO MUCH BETTER! such great variety and we haven't hit GC and TGS yet even...can't wait to buy it
but what is the motivation? They want Wii numbers, and they are not going to get that by showing a lot of hardcore games on Kinect. MS knows they need to appeal to the extremely casual to achieve anywhere near Wii numbers. Whether it will support hardcore games or not, remains to be seen. I wouldn't count out hardcore game support for it yet. For a device that hasn't even released yet, it is selling rather well. I think this is one of the biggest hurdles for the Move is that it is focusing too much on the hardcore. I know I will love the Move, but I just don't see it doing Kinect numbers unless they release some more casual games. At the moment, Move doesn't have too many casual games. Either way I will be getting both as I will most likely use the Move more than the Kinect. The Kinect will be great for parties and when I have family over. I don't think the Move would be too ideal for family and friends as it seems more aimed to a single player experience. With the Kinect, you only need one piece of equipment and a game. The Move requires a lot of pieces for multiple players. I guess we will just have to wait and see. I am getting tired of all the needless bashing that is going on. If my kids enjoy the Kinect then it was worth the purchase to me. They like playing the Wii, but games that require nun-chuck play are still a little hard for them. I think that the Kinect would be a perfect fit for my children.
The first two comments and there agree and disagree count are a prefect example to show that N4G is indeed for PS3 fanboys.
That may be true, and probably is, but any serious gamer would buy move over kinect. Any person who comments on sites like this is most probably a hardcore gamer and obviously move with its wide selections of titles that support it, compared to kinect which offers skittles and milo, is going to be the gamers choice.
Why can't you just decide on what it is you want? And yes it's already been decided for, considering that it already supporting some games I already have. Which to me adds alot more playability to titles I have already beaten. Just think what it can do for the case against sonys game not having the replayability factor for alot of their fps and even to a degree sp games. IMO this can truly be a game changer for sony, but like always it come down to their marketing stance.
There is a difference between having a preference than being a fanboy. Not everyone hear who likes the PS3 is automatically a PS3 fanboy. Some of us have a strong preference for one console over another, just so happen more N4Gers prefer PS3 but there are indeed fanboys roaming around N4G but they make it obvious.
all 360 owners want Kinect and all ps3 owners want Move...makes sense...to you. Me on the other hand know many 360 owners who want to see actual games they wanna play before spending their 1 fifty. I also know a few ps3 owners who understand the simplicity and limits of Kinect and are fine with that. You'd probably put it down to fanboys even if they chose a Sony car over a MS brick. Nothing to do with the fact that a car is just better than a brick. Anyway im for Move as ive seen games that i may play and have seen that it can lay a higher variety of game genres. I hope both do well but i can already see what i'd get the most enjoyment from
took the words right out of my mouth.
i like to move it move it, you like to move it move, we like to move it move it. Microsoft rather move it move it
i will ds3 pad like normal LoL
i'll be playing killzone 3 and socom with move.. while others tickle a fake tigers anus and dance like idiots.
the move sure is ergonomically shaped. You'd think both sides could get along over that.
KINECT For sure, I GOT A WII ALREADY SO I DON'T need move.
if you have the money,and a job why not?
according to N4G: Move, according to the REAL WORLD: Kinect...since e3 kinect has outsold move evrywhere
i will buy kinect because thats what the majority in the REAL WORLD are going to do /s
...likewise I don't do party games so what Kinect has to offer purely from a games prospective I'm not interested :(
Everybody has been bashing the Wii the last couple of years because of the controls ... now the PS3 is coping it, and everybody automatically praises Move. Ahhhhh.... fanboys.
I'm more about the Move (if I get either). Kinect sounds to glitchy and there aren't any games for it I'd like.
I own both systems and I could care less for Kinect for anything besides browsing, when it`s super cheap I`ll buy it for that. Move on the other hand, looks like it has alot of potential to be used for games I`d like to play.
Move for sure
move is the price of a dualshock = instabuy. TC raizing kung fu rider socom 4 champions ape escape echochrome2 @launch. @Mr Rotten Yeah for sure and GT5 headtracking.
don't forget: Little Big Planet Killzone Resident Evil Sorcerer R.U.S.E Dead Space(extraction) Tiger Woods Sly collection Heavy Rain are soon to follow!!
Also Horizon Heroes on the Move EyePet The Shoot de Blob Underground DeadSpace Extraction And if we all wish upon a star, maybe one day, we'll get EPIC MICKEY HD!!!!
Necrum...I don't know if you should be wishing so hard for Epic Mickey...from the feedback it's getting from e3 it sounds more like Epic Fail Mickey.
move has already 20+ hardcore games while kinect just has dance central
come on now, lets not be too hard on Kinect it has more than one title ready for launch :) http://www.vertigogaming.ne...
... I think my answer is obvious.
PlayStation Move. Casual, Hardcore, everything!
...the facts in this article are really messed up, aren’t they? Isn’t the new 360 only $200? and the one with Kinect $300? Am I missing something? edit: never mind, these are Australian prices.
But I was talking to my friend and we came to the conclusion that Kinect does literally nothing that we would use. At least with Move you can play games that I would actually like. Kinect just doesn't have to accuracy or content that would warrant a purchase from someone who actually likes playing videogaes IMO.
I think Kinect is the kind of thing that I'd see at a friend's house and try out and think "Wow! This is kinda cool!" And he'd say, "Yeah! You should buy it!" and I'd laugh and say, "No! That's what you're for!" Despite its games at launch, I think (read, "hope") hardcore games will be coming. There's a bunch of ways they could incorporate this with a controller into making existing hardcore games more immersive. And if I can think of them, I can only assume professional devs can to. As for Move, I have the same feeling as I do for the Wii. It might be more accurate with virtually no lag, but I just don't care. That's like telling me this $60 sushi making machine can replicate squid perfectly. Great. I still hate squid.
I can see where your coming from. But what we have seen from Move is a focus on the hardcore, which is something I never saw from Nintendo with the Wii. Like I said, I wont be buying either, at least until a price drop. But if I buy one it will be Move because they seem to have the software to back up the purchase.
I will get the one which actually has games made from the ground up for the device, not just tacked onto games which work better with a normal controller.
Glad to see you've tried out all the games with move support to verify they actually work better with a DS3. /s
Well, Socom 4, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, and LBP2 are all built from the ground up with the Move in mind. Then there's Sorcery that's built specifically for the Move. So don't give me that crap. I guess I could say something like this: "I'll get the one which actually has hardcore games it supports." And I know about Heavy Rain and Resident Evil 5 being patched to work with it. But honestly what's wrong with that??
Resident Evil and Heavy Rain aren't just mere patches. And everyone who has played them has said that they perform even better than the original versions. Also, I am hoping Trine 2 supports Move. That would be awesome, controlling the Wizard with it.
SOCOM 4 was not built from ground up with the Move in mind. Zipper already stated they where over a year in development on SOCOM 4 before Sony asked them to add support for the Move, and SOCOM 4 was built with the DS3 in mind. As far as the other games you listed I'm not to sure.
So Move then?
Bubbles for the laugh!
Glad to see you're getting Move as well.
LOL.Bubbles for the laugh.
ps3 version of wii, instead of waiting for wiihd, i think i'll just get a 200 bucks ps3 plus this thing and it'll be the end of that :D
For me, all that matters is which one has more games that appeal to me, and right now it's too early for me to tell.
Honestly, I might actually buy Move, but I'll buy a PSeye before I do.
Oh kinect can go suck some wii balls! im all about the move baby. better tech! better support! Better games! until the game Muhammad and the 72 virgins comes out for kinect im not gonna change my mind!
