Kinect vs. Move: The Games – Sony’s view

It seems to me that Kinect has certainly appealed to a large audience, also Microsoft confirmed that Forza 4 will support Kinect, Kinect will probably have improved accuracy, and we all know that there already are a great range of planned Kinect Games. Beyond all these usual announcement, Kinect will also have an adult game (on PC), something still missing in Move’s line-up, even when it form would suggest otherwise…

First, they attack Kinect‘s specs, then Sony attacks the line-up of Kinect. In my view, they better focus on creating wonderful experiences with the Move, instead of bashing Kinect.

Stating the fact is not basing. The truth is that Kinect's specs are bad. Ask any PC gamer and they'll tell you that.

"...then Sony attacks the line-up of Kinect."

Again, that's not attacking. That's just stating the fact. Sony is right. Kinect's line-up is pretty bad. The best Kinect game is Dance Central, which only receive an average score of around 8.

"In my view, they better focus on creating wonderful experiences with the Move, instead of bashing Kinect."

Sony are focusing on creating wonderful experiences with Move, which is why you are seeing all these games coming out that supports Move. Games that creates experiences that both the casual and hardcore can enjoy.

Is that you hear more about the hacks that are being applied to it, rather than actual game support.

Why is that? Every time I try to think of the latest game that is coming out for Kinect, the first thing that pops into my head isn't "Forza: Kinect Edition", but what sort of rudimentary Minority Report-esque augmented reality hack that some researcher at MIT has discovered. If I were a Kinect owner, I'd be a little worried considering that at least Sony has been more than up-front in regards to their upcoming Move software library.

Sony probably won't get the massive holiday boost like Microsoft will gain via Kinect, and they won't have an obnoxious, expensive advertisement campaign. They know they can't compete with Microsoft's advertising budget, but what they can do instead, is spend their resources on ensuring that the customers who end up choosing Move over Kinect -- or even just purchasing Move by itself -- will have plenty of reasons to feel as though their purchase has been justified.

Also, does anyone else find it suspicious that a site called "123Kinect" is trying to provide an objective argument between the two peripherals?

I find it difficult to read irony on the internet, is this what you were doing ComboBreaker?

"Sony are focusing on creating wonderful experiences with Move, which is why you are seeing all these games coming out that supports Move. Games that creates experiences that both the casual and hardcore can enjoy."

Too too funny. Lets see what released for both motion controls before declaring a winner, as so far, they have BOTH been pretty crappy!

DiRtY2468d ago

Why are Kinect's specs bad when it works as flawless as it does right now?

And why is the lineup of Kinect titles rated higher on meta than Move-titles? (And DON'T bring RE5 or Heavy Rain into this)

Where are the move games you are talking about. Don't list games that are move compatible, show me games build for move only to actually use the potential. Sorcery is one, but then? Sony played it save to copy the Wii and MS made the more risky bet with Kinect and it is paying off.

jneul2468d ago

@dirty echochrome ii is unique and already getting some really good scores and yes it was built ground up for move, thankyou for asking

cliffbo2468d ago

And why is the lineup of Kinect titles rated higher on meta than Move-titles? (And DON'T bring RE5 or Heavy Rain into this)

yeah, lets ignore these games. we wouldn't want to make MOVE look better than Kinect now would we

redsquad2467d ago

@Dirty 1.1.3
Why CAN'T he mention Move-capable titles? Seeing as how the whole point of Move is that it can be integrated into almost ANY type of game (unlike, at this juncture, KInect), you want to conveniently cross such games off the list to level the playing field?

ZeldaForever2467d ago

A fanboy rant such as the linked Kinect vs Move comparison or a sleazy paid advertisement on one of the major online mags that's cunningly written as a game review?

GodofSackboy2468d ago

The website is 123Kinect.com, article fail. This article should be called "A Kinect Fanboy site explains why the Move sucks and Kinect rules" . Of course the Move has dedicated games, like Sorcery and Heroes on the Move and that secret one on N4G a couple of days ago, but they "forget" to mention that Move also has optional support on a ton of games like Resident Evil 5, Mag, Killzone 3, Heavy Rain and Socom 4, so yeah, Move is better

kinf-of-zon2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

@ dirty Don't use, "that games should be made from the ground up"motto because kinect joy was an xbl game before they made it for kinect. I'm paraphrasing your quoted comment.

kenjix2468d ago

I will not read this article NEXT!!!

Cherchez La Ghost2468d ago

This is just an opinion based on a blogger site. Fanboy indeed. But if this was a Sony fanboy speaking, you all be slapping each other on the ass saying "agree & true indeed"! N4G is a fanboy site that blood is ran by numers of consoles and exclusives sold.

The hacks of Kinect will open up ideas in the future. Not only that, but it will open up some jobs for talented people to develop games for. But most of you let your ignorance to see these facts. I had my doubts of the hardware, but I give credit where credit is due. MS has a tech toy geeks are loving. And this is where ideas of games start from.

kinf-of-zon2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

I disagree with that last part, because of this video of Sony talking about why they created the ps move @ 3:31 is where they show some cool tech demos.

Cherchez La Ghost2468d ago

There is no need for me to even go to this link. Fact is innovation is being developed with Kinect. Sony had the ball with this tech several years ago, but did not proceed futher with it. That was then and this is now. If this was Sony Eye Toy inovation, people be bowing their heads to Sony as God.

Sony is God and Microsoft is the Devil forever here in N4G. And that sheit is a fact. Someone disagree with a logical rebuttal please.

DaTruth2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

As long as that website is not called "123SonyMove", there is nothing wrong with that!

A legitimate review from an unbiased source giving their own opinion of Move and Kinect or games in general is the reason half of us came to N4G in the first place... even if that's not exactly what we get.

I also take Playstation game reviews from OPM with a grain of salt!

kinf-of-zon2468d ago

@ cherchez la ghost
I didn't mean that kinect is bad, I'm referring to the fact that gaming journalist give Microsoft the benefit of doubt with kinect and dismiss ps move or ps eye even though Sony show on more occasion how their tech works on the ps3 than Microsoft on 360 and by not watching the link proves my point.

eferreira2468d ago

I wont buy a kinect. The device is all smoke and mirrors. Too much hand holding on their games like dance central and joy ride. I'll wait and see what else they bring out.

Mustang300C20122468d ago

It is heating up for the dumbest comment of the year with Eferreira moving up into the forefront. Only 10 more days for the dumbest comment of the year to be crowned....stay tuned.

ZeldaForever2467d ago

you cant like a device until you try it your just person who likes to whine..
