Edge examines what it means for gaming now that motion control has made it to all three home consoles.
"Kinect has been easy to sell. We put it on the shop floor and, to be honest, it sells itself. We can’t keep up with demand. Move stocks are also low – but it’s bundled with every PS3 we’re selling at the moment.” We’re talking to the store manager of an inner-city branch of a major UK videogame retailer (who wishes to remain anonymous), who’s seen first-hand the impact of Kinect and Move’s launches. “We’re currently sold out of 360 hardware,” he continues, “though we do have plenty of PS3s. I am very surprised with the Move sales figures, as the demand and interest isn’t there at a shop-floor level. Kinect really has flown off the shelves, though.”
