doesn't really apply to move, once u have the camera the controllers are less than a dualshock most casual games wont be using the sub controller its an impulse purchase.

you will start to see wii games go multiplatform when that happens multi console owners will just pick up the ps3 version as it will be the same price.

Q:Who Will Actually Buy Move or Kinect?

A:The same people who bought Nintendo Wiis.

Parapraxis3032d ago

@ monk339
Actually, I have no Wii, nor do I plan to buy one.
This is further re-enforced by Move.
If my GF wants to play "casual" games that use motion controllers she will be able to now, and I can dabble in more "hardcore" titles as well.

Although there are certainly some quality titles on Wii, there are simply not enough there that interest me.

"you will always come back to a nice hardcore game with impressive graphics. "
Yeah, Move games can have the exact same visual fidelity as non-move games, it's a control scheme, it has no impact on graphics.

pimpmaster3032d ago

i have both consoles and i say meh to it. just look at the MS confrence, nothing but bullship for move. move was more impressive but at the same time meh i need to see more hardcore move games.

Move: Shooter fans who want a more engaging interface, platformer fans (Heroes on the Move + Sly Collection), sports fans

Kinect: Dance fans

Well, now I know that Parapraxix and 14 others don' t have Wiis, with that said, I would have to assume that millions upon millions of people that do, don' t come to N4G.

now, here is another question, do those millions of people that don' t come to N4G want something different? Or just a high definition Wii?

with PSN we can get better games than whats on the Wii for under $15

Parapraxis3032d ago

Aside from 1st party Nintendo software, I agree.

Kids already have a Wii. I have my controller. we can have some fun with Kinect 2 player game and if the specs shown are right then we can take turns.

Move, I wish it all the best, but I will probably never own one. I played the wii and it just kills the feel of the game for me. The games don't play as well as the controller and if you want a sip of water, you have to put down the controller and pick it up again. Not to mention I had to put the wii in the kids room because they leave the controllers all over the place.

Kinect has no attachment, and it knows who I am. I just walk in and toy with it then leave. Simple as pie.

NecrumSlavery3032d ago

I'm buying Move. There are plenty of games lined up for it. And Move-Only games are no more than $40. Plus I am still believing that Epic Mickey will come to PS3 now. Kinect on the other hand: I have no desire or reason to buy it. It has zero hardcore launch games, not that any are being made or even thought of. Reach won't use it, Gears 3 won't use it, Fable 3 won't use it. Kinect games are $60.

Jinxstar3032d ago

I think I will buy a move controller because I am a HUGE dead space fan and really wanna play extraction on PS3... Other then that the other rail shooters look good... Not too much else really interests me that much yet...

NecrumSlavery3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

I am totally in love with Sorcery and I haven't touched it yet. I like tech demo games: The games that launch to show off the technology. Trace Memory on DS was a great example. It made you utilize the system in 100 different ways to deliver a great game but at the same time show you everything you can do with it. I think Sorcery will have you doing all kinds of kooky movements when playing. I think it's going to be a really fun game.

Tony-A3032d ago

I totally forgot about Dead Space. That's another game I'll be trying with Move!

Hmm... I might be completely sold on it now. There are a substantial amount of Move games I've already said I wanted to try. If it actually works as well as I've heard it works, it might just be a buy from me. ESPECIALLY if they port Epic Mickey, because I was thinking about getting a Wii for that, too.

And to think I was only gonna get Move for my parents...

FreeFalling3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

Honestly, I don't like the idea of all of a sudden using motion controllers on a console that's been traditional for the 5-6 years it's been out. At least the Wii has had motion controllers it's entire lifespan.
That's why I don't see myself playing any motion control on the HD consoles with core games, I might buy Kinect or Move for my family since it interests them, and it might get some cheap enjoyment out of me here and there, but that's about it. :/

I already know I'm getting two Kinects (one for a gift)..to use the VideoKinect during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We already use the Xbox cam right now during the holidays...the only negative was the only one that could talk was the person with the mic..and you always had t move the cam around to focus on people in the room..

With Videokinect everyone in the room can talk and the camera pans out to fit everyone into the shot..in my opinion this is priceless

As for Move..if the old Guncon games Point Blank 1 + 2 are released as a collection I will RUN to gamestop to get that game..one of my all-time fave Guncom games on the original PS and PS2..

But we will all see whaty actually is released for both peripherals..

the ps eye does that... for several years... and costs little to nothing compared to kinect...

EVILDEAD3603032d ago

It does what? You are saying the PS eyecan do what Kinect did on stage at E3..nah..it can't

But what I loved about the 360 cam was playing Uno..UNo rush..Spades..Chess etc and still being able to see and talk to who you were playing with..

What is amazing about Kinect is being able to chat with people on messenger..

People who travel alot for their jobs will understand how priceless that will be to talk to your family on their couch sitting in front of the tv from your laptop. Parents using it with kids who go to college..deployed military using wifi can say good night to their kids etc..

VideoKinect is absolutely worth the money..especially now that you don't need two 360s to talk to people..they can easily get a free account and a cheap webcam

And the PS eye can do all that. i would know cause i have one.

'And people wonder why everybody says Americans are idiots.

This guy really think he needs a 150$ Kinect to do that.

Man, any 20$ web cam can do that, including the PSEye, stop throwing your money through the window.'

LMAO @ the angry multi-account waking up from his afternoon nap. Another complete idiot trying to insult America because he's a PS3 fankid..too bad he can't read

PSeye is ok..but it wasn't even doing what Xbox Vision cam was doing. With the vision cam you could play games over live and still video conference..playing Spades, UNO, UNO RUSH, Chessmaster Live was priceless.

Only the ignorant think that using a $20 webcam on Skype is something so new. Nah..the fact that I could sit on my couch and lazily wave my hand and videochat with someone whose using a 20 dollar cam over messenger from their laptop is cool & vice versa if I'm traveling and I want to see the entire family sitting on the couch while the cam automatically pans in and out as each come into the view is just as cool. Not to mention I can use a cellphone to video chat with Live through Kinect.

The PSeye isnt going to help the 25 million who use Xbox live no matter how much you pretend it will..

my gf asked me about getting a Wii awhile back, but i showed her the E3 videos and she was sold. i already got a PS Eye, so i'll get 2 move/sub controllers.

i'm sure PS+ will have plenty of "free" move games too!!!

vhero3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

MOVE is 4 player compatible and you don't have to sit between 4-11 feet between it in order for it to pick you up ( http://industry.bnet.com/te... But that's just a couple of good reasons since people need those on here it seems. Anyway as for games no doubt MOVE will get more games as wii games will be so easy to port and since they come out at a rate of like 4 a week at a minimum no doubt a lot of them will start making there way to PS3 thus boosting the PS3s game catalogue and casual market.

People who wants to play games and people who want to look stupid. :)

Bocanegra3032d ago

I will not be buying either of these travesties.

SixZeroFour3032d ago

ive always said this...i would buy kinect at the right price (prolly not over $100) and not necessarily for what games it comes out with (but im sure with time, the games will be better) but for the whole package and what ELSE it can do besides games
