Don't know about flaming or trolling, but I think it's cool when companies compliment each other.

Of course we can. Move is a great product...! I'm sure Kinect will be too.

Kudos for Greenberg for admitting it.
RIP_Weazel  +   1648d ago
Regardless, if he said with any degree of sincerity, then it's a welcome break from the bullsh*t co*k measuring that usually goes on. Fingers crossed that this graciousness continues on all sides!
r1sh12  +   1648d ago
the points he made were pretty good.
We have yet to see games created for the move, they are coming out but sony have more to come.
Games like killzone 3 will have move support but how many players will want to play killzone3 with move?
Personally I wouldnt, you will get the occasional few that will give it a go, and an even smaller number who actually use move to play it, but the majority will play with a controller.
I want to see some more titles for move only before I consider buying it.
same goes for kinect, I will wait to try it out and see if there are any games that I actually want, rather than buying something blindly.

We had launch titles for the Move made for the Move - Don't agree with that assessment.

Greenberg spins Kinect's limitations into benefits. The types of experiences with Kinect are limited, so they have to look for new games experiences, but they are not doing that admirably better a job than Sony though. There are 5 fitness games, 2 Dance games and 3 Sports titles for the Kinect at launch.

Of course its a great product. It works as expected and caters to both the casual and core gamer. Now only if the same was true for the competition...
The Wood  +   1648d ago
Well it's true
It works. I think this is like the 2nd time vie heard him praise Sony or their products. So well done I think and it makes a change
Neko_Mega  +   1648d ago
LAIR!!! Didn't they say Forza 3 was going to have support for Kinect? So wouldn't that meam they are doing the same as Playstation Move?

-_- I think this is his way of saying nicely "Sony's Move Isn't Great". I'm sorry but this is bs, they are doing the same thing and they want to.

If Kinect work with Call Of Duty, I bet alot of people would try it. Doesn't mean it has to work well or anything, heck using Kinect with Fable 3 would be awesome.

Using your own voice to talk to AI, what every your face does your characters face does (Meaning if you have a sad face, then your character will have one to). Yeah so I don't think this is true.

edhe  +   1648d ago
Which is why, like everyone is always saying, kinect will not be any kind of attempt to replace pad controls for shooters.
Neko_Mega  +   1648d ago
Deal With It
If you can't tell he is lining that is your problem.
Apone  +   1648d ago
I agree with Greenberg.
It IS a great product!
jack_burt0n  +   1648d ago
Its good to know greeny goes home sits on the couch and uses move to play RE5, Heavy Rain, and Ruse on his PS3. It is the best way to play.

Greenberg actually being quite sensible and intelligent in his interview for a change.

He does this from time to time, if only he'd do it more often he'd get a lot more respect.

thank you..
NotSoSilentBob  +   1648d ago
This guy actually had a complement for a competitors product?

He might be scared of loosing his job.
edhe  +   1648d ago
Erh.. no. People in big business are called "grown-ups".

But everything ballmer says he has to consider the impact it will have on shares. So if he just mocked the competitor without foundation then he'd be considered foolish - stock drops. If he praises it unduly then they'd consider his direction - stock drops.

By doing what he said - saying it's a nice product but not having the same vision as they have with their product - he keeps stock ok whilst not sounding like a complete div or a total fanboi.

Greenberg: hello Kaz, i just phoned to say that the Move is great.
Kaz: who is this?, is that you Peter?.
Greenberg: no it's me Aaron- the XBOX guy, i called to say that the Move is great.
Kaz: um...okay...are you drunk?.
Greenberg: yes, drunk with love for you, Move and Sony in general.
Kaz: stop it- you are scaring me, ju..ju..just piss off alright- i'm calling the cops.
Greenberg: good- maybe they'll let us borrow their handcuffs.
Kaz: you are one sick motherfucker.
Greemberg: mother.....fucker? Hmm? I'll put that one on my to-do list.
Kaz: Ugh!.
Greenberg: put the phone closer to your face and pretend it's my belly button- go on-DO IT.
Kaz: leave me alone- alright, just FUCK OFF.
Greenberg: Off?!. No, i want to fuck YOU.
Kaz: Jack!- i need your help over here- there's some wierdo on the phone.
John: Hello!- who the fuck is there?.
Greenberg: *ahem* uh yeah, it's Aaron Greenberg- the XBOX guy- i just called to say that the Move is great and i think that....
Jack: FUCK OFF *hangs up*.

insomnium  +   1648d ago
OMG! Greenberg is talking about a Playstation/Sony product and he isn't bashing it at all? This is a breath of fresh air for once.

@NnT3291 MS has been bashing Sony for the last 4 years more or less. Where have you been?

It's not like Sony doesn't do the same thing. It's called competition. You do know Sony and MS are not just game companies right?, they need each other, like Sony uses Window 7 for their Laptops, MS might use Blu ray for the next Xbox. That's how business works

I actually thought the PS3 DID have a decent amount of "unique" games for move.. I always just thought the fact you could easily add it on to any current game was just a bonus..

I think because the amount of games already out that CAN use it greatly outNUMBER the exclusive-move games at the moment... they tend to overshadow the move games until more are released (and more are going to be released).

just imo
blackburn5  +   1648d ago
Adding Move to current and future games is a bonus. The fact that it has not only Move centered games but Move intergrated games doubles the usefulness and flexability of the Move and gains support from third parties in the process. It is only fanboys, stupid PR con men and Kinect defenders that try to make it seem like a problem or a disadvantage just because Kinect can't do it.

Well, natrualy hes going to think his is better because, well, he has to. But its nice to see him atleast recognize the competition as being good.

Move is a great product.
At the asking price, Kinect is not.
edgeofblade  +   1648d ago
The guy actually said something nice about Move, and it wasn't as backhanded as it could have been.

Honestly, Move and Kinect aren't competing in the same way. Move is going to be so much more accurate and capable in more core games, where Kinect offers a pile of off-the-shelf tech tied together with some kickass research and software.

They are both worthy in my mind. I'm going to get Move for Time Crisis at some point. But my wife demands Kinect at launch.
