Move for the hardcore who like controllers over motion. Kinect for the casual who like things simple and fun. There we have it. Hopefully they can both stay around. It will be interesting to see where they stay next year this time.

My nieces & nephew was over this weekend and they played with the Move none stop.

My 5 year old Niece made me play the Start The Party Demo with her for about 5 hours none stop and she was even beating her older brother at Sports Champion Gladiator Duel.

& My 12 year old Niece is really good at Sports Champion.

it doesn't get much more simple and fun than Start The Party & Sports Champion is fun for kids on up to old people & the hardcore gamers.
