Which New Motion System is Dominating the Web?

SFG writes: While wondering around the Web, we here at SFG couldn’t help but notice that the new motion control war is picking up some serious steam. The Sony PlayStation Move has been released in most countries and the Microsoft Kinect is set to release next month. SFG wanted to find out who was dominating the interest of the Web. It might come as a surprise to most people what that answer is.

Lets see the ps3fanboys outnumber the xbox 360 fans 100000 to 1 on the web.

jony_dols2928d ago

Thats because most of the 360fanboys defected after the Ps3 became awesome.

"Thats because most of the 360fanboys defected after the Ps3 became awesome."

Became awesome? So you ARE saying it sucked?

jony_dols2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

The PS3 did suck for its first year,
as did the Xbox suck for its first year.

Name 3 high quality titles that came out on either console (king Kong and the Outfit spring to mind...) during its first couple of months?

Two of my mates who used to be diehard 360 fans, and have since 2009, pawned off their Xboxs and have upgraded to the PS3. Thats why you no longer see as many Xbox fanboys on N4G (and if you need a reminder check any PS3 article comments from '07 and '08), because most of them have realized the error of their ways and actually learned to appreciate quality games.

VINNIEPAZ2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

"upgraded to the PS3"

WTF does that even mean? Can the PS3 play Super Mario Galaxy or Monster Hunter Tri? Can it play Alan wake or Gears of War? No huh.....well I dont see that as an upgrade. I see all my systems equal as each has its own exclusives. To bad you have fanboy vision and will miss these great titles.

And too Longrod_Von_Hugendon, its alright to voice ya opinion about things like Kinect. I too am sad to say its not looking to good. But the thing that needs to be eradicated is the ones that are happy and want it to fail, so they diss it every chance they can get. Any true gamer wants these type of things to succeed so we can maybe have fun new ways to play games. If you want something (Move or Kinect) too fail and you are a gamer, then you fail as a gamer.

The butthurt is strong in this thread!

jony_dols2927d ago

@VinniePaz: I have both the PS3 & the Xbox.
But I happen to think that my PS3 is the better console.

Don't get me wrong, I'd put both Alan Wake & Limbo in my top 5 favorite games this gen, but I think its hard to dispute the sheer quality of Sony's first party line-up.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a great game. The Wii is not a great console, when 95% of its software is shovelware, its a fair indicator of the overall quality of the console. It's just my opinion. Then again any review is an opinion piece.

HolyOrangeCows2927d ago

We have to account for the people looking for "Bam! There it is!" and "Bottom of an avatar's shoe" and "Faked Kinect presentation" and "pre-recorded kinect video" and etc.

@VINNIEPAZ- Uh oh..jony_dols just went against the Sony Defense League honor code.

solidjun52927d ago

I'm sure you've been hiding your XDF badge for a while now you moron. You're such an annoying troll.

Obama2928d ago

Interestingly quite a few 360 diehards actually converted to the ps3.

ManGastaS2928d ago

I was PS3 before, now Im 360 all the way :)

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2928d ago

Yeah the reason why MS Kinect is getting such bad press is because all us PS3 fanboys have influence over the press/media. And nothing to do with the shit hardware witnessed in all the demos.

Show me and everyone else here a video of a live demo where the fucking thing works as promised. I'll wait.

This is fake i did a Google trend search myself and kinect turned out to be more popular, maybe they used wrong keywords..

moparful992928d ago

No links, photos, videos??? No bueno....

DelbertGrady2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

It's because they typed in "xbox 360 kinect". It searches for specific terms. If you just type in "kinect, playstation move" then Kinect becomes more popular.

It's easy to get the results you are looking for on Google trends.

@moparful99 - Just go to www.google.com/trends and try it yourself.

moparful992928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

I did.. I typed playstation move, microsoft kinect and the results were clear.. Kinect garnered a good amount of attention around e3 but dropped off and flat lined for the res of the chart.. Move had a mini spike at e3 and in the september timeline had a huge spike, triple that of the spike it gained during e3.. I tried linking the page but it wont work so I invite you to try it and type exactly what I typed in.....

gamingdroid2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Search for the terms people are most likely to recognize the product by, which is 'Kinect' and 'PS Move'. That is their marketed name.

If you do that, you will see that Kinect completely dominates the search terms. Of course it doesn't say if it is positive or negative though.

Heck, I will even make it easy for you!

moparful992928d ago

Dude I typed in every variation of the move and kinect I could and abbreiviating ps move is you weighting the results.. The "correct" terms are playstation move and microsoft kinect period.. I'm tired of you people that come on here and try to spin and twist everything to fit your agenda.. I dare you to ask regular joe blow's on the street and none of them will say "PS MOVE" Get out of here with that, I'm not naive and you know better....

gamingdroid2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

Believe what you want, since you refuse to believe otherwise.

However, I have never seen Kinect referred to as "Microsoft Kinect". Your are more likely to find it as Kinect in conjunction with Xbox 360 then Microsoft. That is completely ridiculous!

The PS Move has always been referred to as PS Move or at best Playstation Move.

Note that in both cases, I use whatever terms the marketing material from both Sony and MS show.

Stop your own BS and look at the pre-orders. It matches the trend!

What do you have to back up with your information?

Moentjers2928d ago

try kinect, move

guess who wins ?

Mystogan2927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Playstation move is wrong cuz its has the word playstation in it, it searches everything playstation related and also everything move related.

PS move or sony move is the best search

and kinect is just kinect cuz its a pretty unique word

look at the results when i search Xbox,Playstation

http://www.google.com/trend...

And when i search Kinect, Sony Move

http://www.google.com/trend...

gamingdroid2927d ago

'Move' alone is a very generic term that does not uniquely qualify the product. 'PS Move' does and that is what it is referred in almost every article I read about on the internet. That is how it is also referred to as from Sony marketing material.

Kinect is pretty unique word that I notice many can't even say or spell right. However, MS usually advertises it as "Kinect for Xbox 360", but everybody refers to it as Kinect and occasionally I still see Natal or Project Natal.

moparful992927d ago (Edited 2927d ago )

Sony's official branding isnt just move, or ps move.. Its playstation move.

http://us.playstation.com/p...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Move and ps move are just nicknames and abreviations that people use but the devices offical name is [email protected] period... Typing in the other two terms weights the results and give kinect the advantage....
