PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida has admitted that Sony feels "lucky" that its Move peripheral is continually compared to Microsoft's Kinect - as it has led to more press coverage than the firm could have hoped for.
the comparison chart making them look desperate and is just adding fuel to the fire
Once again, Sony keeping it classy. Just like my man Dudley. :)
Of course they like the comparison...it hides the fact they stole there entire design and gameplay from Nintendo Wii. How embarrassing for Sony to admit that they hang onto the big American company like a parasite looking for a free meal.
What about that whole "Sony's been doing camera control since PS2" thing? Make another account and explain why Sony is both stealing from the Wii and Microsoft, yet their product is better than both Nintendo and Microsoft. Maybe you should hope for Microsoft to steal better next time. Stealing 10 year old hardware ideas isn't the most intelligent way to do business.
Now i understand why sony's advertisement budget is low compared to MS.
lol i agree. Sony doesn't to need spend millions on advertising. Their products are well know and they have a history for high quality assurance.
Sony doesn't need advertising, but you need english lessons. :) On topic: Still not very hyped about either.
cos idiots keep doing comparisons little do they know their advertising the thing for free very clever.
It shows how the move is far superior to kinect every time. Why wouldn't they love it?
use your opponents weight and momentum against him. HAI!
I agree and have been saying the very same thing forever. Sony puts their money on games. They don't waste it on crap that doesn't matter. That is why and how they can fund all the 1st, 2nd and even 3rd party support they have, and why they offer the most variety and diversity in the gaming industry.
Sony's advertisements are just better
After playing Sports Champions, I'm convinced that in terms of added gameplay - Move wins. Now I know Kinect has not been released yet, but Move does not take anythign away from current gameplay mechanics, instead it adds precision, and depth to current gameplay mechanics with its motion control. Kinect on the other hand takes away established gameplay mechanics and substitutes them for on-rail experiences - whcih to me seems like a backward step. I am patiently waiting to be proved wrong (given the TGS announcements of new exclusive games for Kinect), however the simple fact remains that most games will inevitable be casualware, or on rail games! And in this regard I can't say that Kinect > Wii tbh!!!
Other than shooters, how will we control the camera without that second analogue stick? I don't want to control the camera in platformers the same way that SOCOM does it. I am excited for Move, so I hope that developers come up with something that works well (perhaps using head tracking like GT5?).
I think they just need to put a globe on the navigator.
You mean camera control in a TPS? If thats the case then whats the problem with using the move controller for camera? Think of it as the same way as using a mouse to control camera in TPS/Isometric games on the PC.
TPS seems to work fine. My concern is about games that don't use a targeting reticule all the time. I don't want to be platforming in Uncharted 3 with an icon floating around the screen like in Mario Galaxy. Or how about something where the Move is your sword controls? How do you control the camera there? Sorcery seems to lock the camera behind the player, which is fine for many games, but not for others. Game developers are a lot better at designing games than I am, so I hope they see solutions that I don't. @ chaoslockheart: I would bet that when PS4 comes out, it will come with a controller that is an evolution of Move, possibly a hybrid between two Move controllers and a dualshock.
lol if i knew my product was the best on the market i'd love comparisons too. Just think of it as free marketing :)
Pew, Pew, Pew. Need I say more. LOL BUTTONS required..... MOVE for the win
Move is the best option bettewn those three but I still want to see more games that uses it . I will probably wait to get a Move for myself only next year with Killzone3. Hardcore games with Move = WIN For playing ocasional games I still preffer to keep Wii for that.
Look I'm not gonna compare all just yet, but good hardware that works with above average software can never be bad. Meaning if they did what they said they were going to do, snaps fingers like Rolento- "Mission Complete."
I still can't understand how the same people on this site, who once bashed the Wii, are suddenly getting so excited for Move / Kinect. If there's one thing the launch line up of Move titles has shown (and no doubt Kinect will be the same), is that no one has (yet) brought anything new or fresh to the motion control market. The launch titles for Move seem like Wii rip-off's with more grown up graphics. I'll pass until Sony / MS come up with a killer app that makes buying their devices worth my money.
Maybe...you should play Move? Edit: No...I'm serious. Play Move. It's great! People on this site, and gamers alike, dislike the Wii because of two things: A lack of precision and a lack of quality titles. While Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl are great titles...very few titles on the system show off the actual "motion controls" part of it. I'd say Wario Ware is probably the best example of the Wii's capabilities, however. That game is SO AWESOME! I personally enjoy the Wii. However, because of the Move controller/Eye camera, the Move allows for much more precision than the Wii. Precision = FUN! Take Heavenly Sword, for example. While it was a great game, many were put off by the slow response on the combat system. The same goes for Killzone 2. People were spoiled by Devil May Cry and Call of Duty. (I'm fully aware that HS and KZ2's mechanics were included purposefully. It's just an example.) So, what I'm saying is...try the Move. It's great! Sony has ensured quality titles also! That's why we're all excited! The Wii has Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Goldeneye, and Zelda: The Skyward Sword coming out...and those are probably all going to be amazing! However, not a single one of those games pushes "motion controls" very far. Do you understand what I'm getting at now? Also...no, I have NO idea why anyone is excited for Kinect. Speaking from personal experience, it's nothing special.
Until something comes out that actually looks like a decent gaming experience I'll pass. I bought a Wii day 1. The games are OK, but it's been my least favourite Ninty console. Motion controls - no matter how accurate (or not) are just not for me right now. I hate playing Mario Galaxy with the Wiimote. However, as a console that friends can play together, it's great. The Move has yet to show anything that makes me think it's worth trying (let along worth purchasing). Sure there are a lot of decent titles in the pipeline, but until they arrive, again, I'll pass.
Because Launch titles are always the measuring stick for hardware RIGHT?!?! /S I cant speak for Kinect, but MOve is insanely accurate, as MR. Kennedy said the accuracy = fun and adds a whole new level to games like sports champions. I was never into the Wii at all, Wii sports and sports resort couldnt keep my attention at all, yet SC has me hooked. YOur skill determines how good you do as in most other games. All of these motion controls are trying to grab the mainstream casual audience, but Sony's offering is also going after the Core audience and i think thats a big deal s a core gamer. In the end dont judge hardware off launch titles, if we did the PS3 and the X360 wouldve failed long ago.
Because Launch titles are always the measuring stick for hardware RIGHT?!?! /S That argument is getting more and more tired every generation. The PS3 is now a known quantity for developers. Move has been in development for a long time. There's no excuse not to have an awesome launch line up. Especially when you consider that the PS3 has had rudimentary motion control since Day 1 in the SIXAXIS / DS3!! I'm not hating on PS3 - it's my fave console right now, and 3D TV plus Move has massive potential. But as I said before...People knocked the Wii, and it had nothing to do with it being inaccurate - it was because people called it a fad, or a joke. Now here we are with Sony and MS desperate to get their controllers accepted - and yet still dishing out half arsed shovelware at launch. And of course I'll judge Move off the launch titles, I'm not saying the hardware sucks - I'm buying the controller to play the games. I'm just not going to buy the Move based on future potential. I'll buy it when there are games I want to play and laugh at the hypocrites who bashed the Wii and now are foaming over Move / Kinect as if it's the second coming.
It says a lot that the LAUNCH titles for Move look and control better than most of the "equivalents" on the Wii. I own a Wii, but the games I play on it are definitely ones that don't use its shoddy motion control very much, if at all (like Monster Hunter 3 and Fatal Frame 4).
You have Fatal Frame 4?!? How is it?!? It's my favorite survival horror series. I NEED TO PLAY IT!
@LeonSKennedy4Life It's really good. Motion only controls the flashlight. Everything else is classic Fatal Frame goodness.
I wish they (Sony) make a HD remake of Fatal Frame collection with move support.
Sony to make Siren compatible with Move.
Here's why I'm excited. Games like Killzone 3 and Socom 4 that look to play incredibly well with the control scheme and the fact that Sony are supporting the core gamer with it along with the casuals. I don't like the look of most games on the Wii, I played Wii Sports with some family last Xmas and it was fun at that gathering but not something I see myself playing as a regular gaming session and I wouldn't buy a Wii just for the occasional Mario game or the occasional Mario Kart or Metroid game either. Kinect's games don't appeal to me either. The software simply never appealed to me as I'm sure there are many others who felt exactly the same way. There's software for the Move however that does appeal to me. Personally I think that Move itself has freshened up the motion control market simply because there is no motion controller as capable as it. Also how they have it so well integrated into core games. Who else has integrated such capable motion controls into a core game? It hasn't been done before, by definition that is new and fresh.
I played the demo and, while I am not excited about the game, I am excited about the possibilities it shows. Move is wicked precise. I am also really looking forward to the Heavy Rain patch. That game was incredibly immersing even with the Dualshock. Move will probably make it even better. edit @ below: That may be, I know the "Valkyria Chronicles" demo didn't to it justice either, but I'm currently playing Dragon Age, and that will probably keep me busy for several months. No need to spend $10 on something else that has gotten very mixed reviews right now.
Play the full game of Tumble. Sleeper I tell you, sleeper.
Enjoy Dragon Age man. That's one I skipped b/c of the mixed reviews. Any good?
My bedroom is too small for Move. Its only about 3x4 feet in area........hold on, im in the wardrobe- SOMEONE LET ME OUT OF HERE, HEEEELP.
Lol. You have a wardrobe? I play in a space about that size. It works pretty well.
I'm about a 1.5 metres away from my tv. still works even though it says stand 2 metres away.
Just come out of the closet already! LOL. I'm joking man don't take it seriously. But you have to admit that you set yourself up for that one.
Did i mention that the door is locked?. Anyway, if you could just swim over and open the door for me i'd appreciate it. I'll give you my old Peter Pan lunchbox as a sign of my thanks.
Sony still need to Push Move to keep the sales up and as for every one who is saying kinect is crap and you need to play on Move before you slag it off is it not the same way around for Kinect try it your self before you slag it off its the same for every new tech. At this moment in Time im not a big fan of move as there are not any games that make me think wow that looks amazing with the move add on but im sure once Sony bring some games built from the ground up to show off what move can do ill prob go out and pick on up but until then ill stick to the ds3 and 360 controller.
You can't compared these things, Kinect is a whole new console, Move is just the next step beyond the Wii.
lol And here we are looking at the games and thinking it is just an overpriced EyeToy
... And I bet they like to see that their product always comes out on top after the all arguments & fanboy-games :D
Quality: Move > Wii > Kinect Price Kinect > Move > Wii (except if you insist that Kinect can actually do 4 active players)
Yep Sony getting the people into the stores to see Kinect and leaving with Move Good strategy
THIS IS UNFAIR COMPARISON A COULD DO THE SAME WITH DIFFERENT RESULTS!
