Sony's Marks: Move Supports 'Wide Enough Range Of Experiences' For Success

Dr. Richard Marks, senior researcher for Sony Computer Entertainment’s R&D department, has been talking about Sony's Move motion control device versus Microsoft's Kinect, suggesting that Move's controller/camera combo is 'flexible' compared to the "set of experiences" the body-capture based Kinect offers.

When asked by Edge magazine whether he agreed with Microsoft’s position that ‘one controller is too many’, Marks replied: “I don’t think that point of view is quite right… I think you can do some things really well with just a camera, but there are a bunch of experiences you could never do as well.“

Marks, who conceived and developed Sony’s EyeToy hardware and was later involved in the development of its PS3 successor, PlayStation Eye, is one of the people responsible for designing and bringing the Move hardware to life.

''“With Move we wanted to make sure that we had a wide enough range of experiences that is worked as a platform device for us. So we could really say that, no matter who you are, you’ll really want this controller, even if you’ve never played a game, or you’ve been playing the hardest core games of all.”''

EyeToy has been where Kinect is going. Sadly the best game that could have showed off what Kinect could do is currently a PSN exclusive.

Kung Fu Live.

Yep, the PS3 can do Kinect like gaming as well as Wii like gaming and then it can do what only the PSMove and do... which is take the best of both (Kinect and Wiimote) and add 3D to the mix. Yep, that there will be a truly Move-ing experience as we begin to Play Beyond our current imaginations.

Great that its looking like its potentially going to sell but at the end of the day if you don't have the software to back it up you may as well have a Wii.
Besides Dance Central (which looks like a timed exclusive) what other killer app does the Kinect have or will have??
"Have you checked out Sony's willdo? Its teh awsome" WHAT?!
