Sony: We love Kinect comparisons

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.

Def Warrant2644d ago

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.

LordStig2644d ago

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?

bjornbear2644d ago

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.

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.

Qui-Gon Jim2643d ago (Edited 2643d ago )

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.

Def Warrant2644d ago

lol if i knew my product was the best on the market i'd love comparisons too. Just think of it as free marketing :)

DJMarty2644d ago

Pew, Pew, Pew. Need I say more. LOL

BUTTONS required.....

MOVE for the win
