This holiday season, it's all about the motion control. One is completely hands-free. Which one is better? Which one should go on a holiday wish list or deserves your hard-earned allowance money? Read on for the details.
They failed to mention The PSeye has full body tracking capability as well depending on the software =)
Washington Post. Doubt they know much about gaming anyway. Negative for Move: "Still using a controller" Clearly they don't understand the purpose
The fact that they list "there's a controller" as a "negative" is by far the biggest joke of the entire s*** excuse of an article. Yes, there is still a controller; Sony INTENDED it to be like that. You know, so you can do all sorts of advanced and nuanced things that you wouldn't otherwise be able to do? Sounds like the author completely bought into the $500 million dollar Microsoft hype campaign that hammered "You ARE the controller" into people's brains. Don't get me wrong, I still haven't bought a PS Move OR a Kinect, and I think both are kinda useless peripherals for a hardcore gamer like myself. But I think I know what is the better, more functional peripheral when I see it. One device is selling because it has some decent utility and precision to it; the other device is selling because Microsoft spent half a billion dollars promoting it like it's the second coming.
No need to get so aggressive over it, you don't have to be well informed to have an opinion on something. Why I do agree listing no controller as a negative is nonsense does it really matter? I mean who on earth goes to the washington post for there daily gaming fix?
I'd get both because they actually work and are fun. Don't get the Wii though.
@Statix This article is probably part of the 500m$ campaign. the biggest fail is listing Harry Potter as a good Kinect game, and not mentioning sports champions time crisis and tumble as good move games, they are better reviewed than any of Kinect games.
Lol game-ur, take that tin foil hat off
both offer different experiences and will have games tailored for each. That is...if you own both. If you only own one then get the one for the system owned. Neither are considered system switchers so it is pretty easy to understand. And yes, I agree that WP may NOT be the place for people like us to get our info. Millions of others out there who dont know about n4g or ign or kotaku (etc), however do. Sad but true.
Get neither so this motion gaming crap can die a slow death. People were finally starting to see through the Wii and then Sony and MS have to go and ruin it.
Exactly. The PS Move has far more "capability" than the Kinect. For example, you can do all sorts of things besides waving your arms around in the air like a lunatic. EDIT: Oh wait, you can control and rewind Netflix videos with your hand also. And control SOME limited parts of the 360 dashboard. Because allowing you to control ALL of the 360 dashboard is asking too much. All with questionable responsiveness and precision, and noticeable lag, of course.
Like use the damn thing as a dildo? :S
"For example, you can do all sorts of things besides waving your arms around in the air like a lunatic." Yes because out of the Kinect games I've played so far all I had to do was wave my arms like a lunatic. GTFO Troll EDIT @StatixTroll "Don't get me wrong, I still haven't bought a PS Move OR a Kinect, and I think both are kinda useless peripherals for a hardcore gamer like myself. But I think I know what is the better, more functional peripheral when I see it. One device is selling because it has some decent utility and precision to it; the other device is selling because Microsoft spent half a billion dollars promoting it like it's the second coming." So in short we should listen to a guy that HAS NOT even played Kinect or Move yet and also shows hate to MS because they spent money on a product they make (talk about stupid business right?) You are the perfect example of somebody that REALLY needs to GTFO of these articles
Just when I thought the world was finally over the dildo joke, someone else has to try to resurrect it...sigh
so what teh gt5 hate article are over tahnks god end of the day both of these are towards casual market move will have more hardcore titles for us as long as both sony and MS don't forget the reason/and people who brought them to this point we will be fine give us games AAA games
Another thing they failed to mention is you need a PS3 on top of the Move device.Since its pretty obvious this is a "guide" for the videogame uninformed, it would have been important to mention it like they did with kinect.
Indeed, check out my video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
D - None of the Above
so true bubbles
Hmm? *Looks up from paper* Oh...just flamebait.
it's funny because your avatar is reading the paper. -_-
Hmm? *looks up from paper* Oh...just a hater.
no, it actually made me laugh. i gave you a + bubble too. don't be so mean.
Keep the damn 5 year olds off your consoles!
Keep them from writing idiotic Washington Post articles also.
Ps Moooooove all the way!!
Herbert Moooooooon loves PlayStation Moooooooove.
Clearly if you had eyes and half a brain you would see that Kinect has a lot more going for it and potential.
If you have half a brain, go for Kinect. If you have a WHOLE brain, go for PS Move.
or if you have no brain, just being a tool, repeat what statix said above.
If you had eyes but half a brain, you'd only be able to see out of one of them :)
EVERYONE! CALM DOWN! ...Would anyone like to see my monkey impression?
Go on then. I can see you're dying to do it :)
Well it depends on what consoles you have. If you have both, PS MOVE is the best. I'm from UK btw
"If you have half a brain, go for Kinect. If you have a WHOLE brain, go for PS Move." Wow you are an idiot. I have both and there is nothing wrong with either. TROLL FAIL
i'll buy the one that makes these pointless articles go away.
One game: kung fu live. Eat it kinect.
What? No one has seen Kung Fu Live? It does the full body tracking and without a controller to. Kinect can't even track full body all the time, then again it is all about how tall and how big your chest is and all that stuff.
Playstation Move because you can use it sitting down, you can use it without needing 8 ft of space (3-5 is fine), and it can be used with better/hardcore games.
I have no first hand experience with Kinect, so I can't comment on that, but saying that holding a controller is supposed to be a bad thing about Move is just plain ridiculous. And where the hell did they come up with that postulation that there are only eight Move games? I don't have the total number on hand here and I don't have time to go looking for lists now, but including old games that have had Move support patched in, and new games that give you the option of playing with either Move or a regular controller (and I don't see any reason whatsoever that both types shouldn't be included in the number of Move games), it's gotta be up to 20+ - including PSN store titles - by now?
ya its 26 harry porter as best kineck experience funny stuff
exactly, you can play sport champion, ping pong, even golf sitting down. Really Awesome. :D @jleack I better see you using the move for KZ3 alright. I'm waiting on line once it comes out. F the ds3.
Move works with core games. How's that for a super plus?
I wanna hold something in my hand. I don't think my body is a good enough controller. I don't trust it and if it breaks you can't buy a new body controller on Amazon. So I choose the Move.
I like that through all these nonsense comments you manage to put it all in perspective with your comment. Pick what ever games/controlers you like and enjoy.
Of course I say that because I bought the Move on launch and my girl just bought me the Kinect for my Bday. Kinectimals and Dance Central here I come. We work hard so we can play hard.
I recommend: If you have a PS3, you should buy a PS Move. If you have a Xbox 360, you should buy a Kinect sensor. Makes sense for me...
Logitech Driving Force GT or the Microsoft wheel. Definitely more fun than motion controls.
None. For now. :)
it's not as bad as the show gadget show made they was telling everyone that a 30fps 3d camera had a better response time than a 60fps one, i mean really thats like saying a 30mph car is faster than 60mph car but anyway atleast i know the truth as my kids jumped around like mad on kinect adventures, poor kinect could not keep up with them and it did have lag not to mention the virtual characters did not jump as many times as they did, i mean seriously what is this world coming to what they don't tell you is the reality move is the fastest followed by wii, followed by kinect and the reason is because kinect has to track alot more in 3d and operates at a slower speed which is the reason it is slower.
Another paid rant for MS, move along.
i have a ps eye already i don't need kinect.
I have a wii already I don't need move
How you getting on with that Ps2 with less accurate Move?By your rationale we shouldn't have bothered buying 360 or PS3 and stuck with PS2.we buy next gen consoles every cycle,why is next gen motion(with a next gen console that could do so much more)not applicable?
Neither one I'm afraid. Not interested in Kinect or Move AT ALL.
Then don't read articles about them.
kinect is what i GOT... :)
Well if you want a wii knock off than why not just get a wii, otherwise I would get something new like kinect
i have both an when i play move which is still fun, i like THE SHOOT!! its like i've been there done that(wii), my wife an kids absolutly love kinect, all we have right now is kinect adventures but they enjoy it way more than the Wii an move, well frankly i do to..i like the motorized stand of the kinect you dont have to adjust it.but for the move when your playing games like ipet you have to point the camera down then point it back up when your playing something else.
MOVE wins hands down. BUTTONS, 1:1 TRACKING, LAG FREE Kinect is simply shit.............. PEW, PEW, PEW...........LOL
To all you MS fanboys. Instead of being happy and defending the Kinect tech like it's a new revolution. You should be pissed off at MS for spending 500 mil. on a POS hardware, instead of spending that money on making new exclusive games on the system. Just imagine all the exclusive games they could have made with that money. I hope you hardcore MS fanboys will be happy with Kineck games and Gears 3 next year.
Since kinect is selling more than the move I would say people already made their decision.I think its funny that sony has been counting shipped instead as sold all this time. I bet its the same with their console as well. Probably all the ps3 fanboys claiming that move is great and kinect is shit probably hasn't tried either one. thoract I don't defend kinect at all. I personally don't give a shit about motion control gaming. Also, I'm sure Ms hasn't reveal all its games for 2011 yet.
They are 2 very different devices. So get whichever one you like the most
How does Kinect have potiental? Come on explain
They are both for casuals. The difference is that MS does not lie that Kinect is anything else. Sony brainwashes their gullible fanboys into believeing that Move is for them as well. It's not. Also if you are indeed interested in all this casual stuff Kinect is a lot more interesting thing. Move is just a copy of Wii-mote but Wii already has a lot of great games.
Spoken like a true xbot, that bought into the Kinect hype. Replacing your xbox multiple times and increasing the cost of XBLive is ok because MS is always so truthful. You should really think about who is brainwashed here buddy.
MOVE CAUSE IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY.
