Retailers: PlayStation Move will outsell Xbox Kinect

Spandas Lui writes: "Sony’s PlayStation Move has been tipped to be a more popular motion control device than Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect, according to a national video games retailer and a games distributor.

... Move will debut this month while the Kinect is slated for a November release.

National video games retailer, Gametraders, said that, based on feedback from its 35 stores across Australia, the Move will be more coveted than the Kinect."

I ordered 2x move controllers, 1 sub controller and Sport Champions. (already got the camera)

My cousin did the same plus he needed the camera too.

Most of my friends did the same.

None of us got kinect. In fact I don't know a single person personally who ordered kinect. Even my friends with 360's didn't order Kinect.

So in my eyes that is somewhat true.

How does it feel to have wasted so much money on a product that is doomed to fail?

Sport Champions failed miserably, the game was supposed to make people want to buy more Move games. Do you think that people who play it are going to be thinking about buying another games similar to it? Of course not. Especially seeing as you'll have to pick up two motion controllers in order to get the most out of some of the games, which amounts to a big investment for the determined early adopter. Kinect looks great and I'm afraid none of you have the right to say anything about it as you have not tried it in a local community.

But of course, your fanboys.

People will buy. I want it for Heavy Rain and Socom. Do you know how many wheels are sold for Gran Turismo? If they keep making them and expensive then they must be selling. I am buying a wheel that will cot between 120.00 - 150.00 for ONE GAME because that game makes buying the wheel worth it. Together they provide a unique gaming experience that a simple controller pad cannot. No one knows how Move will do but it surely has more potential than Kinect which so far has not shown any games worth buying, not one.

As a person who bought the eyetoy let me tell you that you will be waisting your money with Kenect because There will be few evelopers who want to spend millions to create games for it. Since Kenect (or eyetoy) is needed to play the game you are limited to players on Xbox with Kenect... and only a few will buy your game. that is what Sony learned when they made eyetoy and no developers made games for it.

Really? A product that isn't out yet is doomed to fail and you have the balls to call others fanboys.

That's a classic.

4 camera's and 3 3D-TV's. This is a very hot product. If you don't have one then you are not a gamer. Word to the mother.

AndrewRyan2963d ago

Motion controls throw me off, and the move does not have enough games, SURE IT HAS SUPPORT FOR GAMES like Killzone 3 or RE5, but I rather play with a controller. I mean REAL GAMES, Exclusive games ONLY FOR MOVE.

will be hilarious if kinect has hardware problems like xbox

Bell Boy2963d ago

I doubt Kinect will be used that much once purchased to show many hardware failures, once you play the games they have shown so far expect them to be played for 30 mins at a time max.

I honestly believe it will sell well to the uninformed over Christmas but many disappointed parents will try to return it or it will go in the draw full of homemade jumpers from grandma
