PS3's Move 'Off to a Good Start,' says Analyst

Both Sony and Microsoft are vying for a piece of the motion controls market this holiday season. The PlayStation Move has been out for several weeks already, and Microsoft Kinect motion camera is fast approaching. According to a new survey of U.S. consumers by Lazard Capital Markets, interest in both motion devices is actually high. (Industry, Kinect, Microsoft, Playstation Move, PS3, Sony, Xbox 360)

Good...I will jump on board soon.

If you do buy RUSE, it's is without a doubt the best way the play RTS on consoles. I use to love playing RTS when I was mainly a PC gamer and that genre I missed the most switching mainly over to consoles. But, since i bought the MOVE I'm hook on RTS games again and I hope they will be future RTS games to PS3 mainly Civilization 5.

civ 5 is not RTS...i...t
Lekumkee  +   1503d ago
No it's not RTS per-se but it has RTS type controls that would be easier with the MOVE.
raztad  +   1503d ago
I'm definitely picking RUSE. I liked the demo using MOVE, very intuitive. BTW, could anyone elaborate why CiV5 is not a RTS?
Lekumkee  +   1503d ago
@raztad

Civ5 is more turn base strategy, but the controls are exactly like RTS meaning you point at a unit and you tell it what to do and where to go. Unlike a RTS where all commands are done in real time.

Now you guys care about sales (it's not even doing that well)?
Lekumkee  +   1503d ago
WTF are you talking about? The article is about interest in motion controls. Jeez paranoid much?! Not every article is about PS3 vs Xbox. Go back to your cave.

I hope Move sells well so that it will be supported by devs and the community. I don't hope things sell well just to use it in a fanboy argument as if proves a "win". Fanboys of the box tend to use sales as a crutch in any argument.

oh shut it
it an article on sales, what did you expect people to comment on?

and why are you here? to comment on people commenting on sales?

The people that are commenting negatively about other people's comments about sales in a story about sales are merely showing how fragile their egos really are.

Move actually can be a lot of fun. Sony needs to market it better though
Kurisu  +   1503d ago
I see adverts all the time for it on various channels here in the UK! So I think the marketing going pretty well :)
facelike  +   1503d ago
I see ads for Move on ESPN in the States all the time.
blackburn5  +   1503d ago
People always forget to factor in that Move hasn't come out in Japan yet. That will definitely even the odds. But seriously 3-4 million Kinect by year's end based on easily cancelled preorders. That is just not happening. @ Kurisu the Move just came out a short time ago. Move's line up extends into next year. Be patient.

yeah since Japan is biggest and most important market of them all.

EDIT:Why disagrees? Who doesn't agree that Japan is important gaming market?

Because Pokemon Black & White is ONLY out in Japan, and it outside Halo: Reach worldwide in its first week...

Japan CAN be a massive market.
SprSynJn  +   1502d ago
I don't think it will sell as well here as it will overseas. The Japanese are more interested in portable gaming machines than anything else. While the Wii is popular, the PS3 has been outselling it for a while, so I doubt the Move will have much of an impact. What I am trying to say is that the PS3 gamers are the people who probably do not care about motion control.

We have different definitions of a good start then
Mr Analyst
Kurisu  +   1503d ago
I love Move, but I'd like to see more compatible games! :)
Shadow Flare  +   1503d ago
I'd like to see more online move games. Namely a patch for sports champions for online multiplayer
Kurisu  +   1503d ago
Online for Sports Champions would be pretty epic!
divideby0  +   1503d ago
as more REAL games get on board with Move.... I will reconsider it a buy
PS360fanboy  +   1503d ago
I don't know if it's moving any consoles but sales were not that bad.
Kain81  +   1503d ago
i think it does, at least in Germany. When i bought the PS-Move starter pack, i saw 8 people with the PS3 bundle (mediamarkt).
dead_eye  +   1503d ago
I don't think move or kinect will be system sellers really. If it's aimed at the causel market they ain't going to go out and buy a system plus the motion device straight away or at all if it's gonna cost more than a wii.
Trebius  +   1503d ago
Move is amazing :)
I really enjoyed the demo i played, I'm picking it up soon as possible.
plb  +   1503d ago
Sorcery please. BTW anyone know how GT5 will play with move?

AntoineDodson  +   1503d ago
GT5? I don't think that you can play that with Move. Correct me if I'm wrong tho. I do know it has head tracking which you use the PS Eye for.
dead_eye  +   1503d ago
probably like shit. get a steering wheel and play it proper style
madpuppy  +   1503d ago
Move is pretty interesting
I am having a ball with gladiator battle and tumble is pretty fun as well.

I am looking forward to "the fight" to come out soon.

but, it does need more games.
tweet75  +   1503d ago
after reading the game reviews
I just cant get excited about it
dead_eye  +   1503d ago
Yeah who wants something that works
Stealth20k  +   1503d ago
3-4 years before new consoles is good
jerethdagryphon  +   1503d ago
ther hardware averges 8.8 and the games are about 8.0

fair enough for launch line up

sportschampions is fun just dont over do the gladiator one
it can hurt
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   1503d ago
Idk why I bought move for to be honest. I'm not a motion gaming person. I'd tried it and let me tell you did I really get bored of it fast ( yes I did). Ima just be Patience With it and wait for good games to drop.
seinfan  +   1503d ago
This is sad.
dtrain21  +   1503d ago
I don't want to buy another Wii-mote....oh wait
