With Kinect and Move advertising in full swing, how far can the company line carry these two devices?
The Kinect damn near dislocated my shoulder....
The guy in the video did better standing still than I did trying to control the car at a Bose store. Kinect Adventures seemed to follow my movements fairly accurately though.
Kinect Is a blast to pull out for a good full body work out...
I can't seem to muster any interest in either device.
This Author doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. The question is whether Microsoft's 500 million in advertising will stack up to Sony's word of mouth advertising. Difference is one didn't cost 500 million!! Now, regardless of the fact that both devices JUST LAUNCHED and both have already sold into the millions. (Or shipped, I don't give a fuck if it's shipped or sold, because shipped will very quickly be sold!! DUH!!! The stores ORDER the devices based on DEMAND!) That goes for Microsoft and Sony. As with any device...it's not the advertising push, but quality of software that will ultimately spell the success or doom of these devices..........so regardless this article is a major fail.
You know there are a few things here: 1. Have you heard of overestimating demand? Yeah, it happens to retailers frequently and they subsequently end up clearance it out and stop re-stocking it. 2. Not putting in your weight behind your product, might just mean you are screwing your customers over because it won't have the necessary momentum to carry the platform forward with support from third party developers. I'm just saying, there is more than one way to look at things!
I like your style, looking at things from multiple perspectives. I try to do the same as much as possible. But I still believe the devices are selling in good demand. Also I have been seeing more ads for Move, so Sony is putting some "weight" behind their product now, would've paid off for them earlier to. But one of the struggles with Move is showing why its better than Wii. Of course us gamers know the difference because we play games. But the ads would have to convince those that don't know why it is better. Kinect is an easier sell from that view point because it appears newer. I would def put my money behind Kinect if I was working at MS. Regardless of how I feel about the product.
1-Yes I have heard of over estimating demand. But I do not think it's being applied here. Do you see any clearance move sales going on? No. 2-Sony is putting just as much behind Move as they did the ps3. Look at the exclusive line up for 2011 and tell me where the 'momentum' is. Is 'screwing' your customers giving them the games they want...or giving them a device instead of exclusive content? Can you imagine what that 500 million could have created for exclusive first party content? Oh wait...whats important is how many sales Kinect/Xbox has, which is what that 500 million directly translates too. As always...I will take game quality. It might take a few years for a quality game to be made but...you know I get more satisfaction from waiting for a few years for an amazing game...than knowing a bunch of other people have same device I have.
your both right, we sort of have to wait to see how it plays out. sony doesnt have the marketing budget of microsoft. but... do they really need it? what could sell more consoles and their games and accessories than a price drop. microsofts 500 million in advertisement and ps3 price drop will probably yield the same results.
Motion Control isn't evolving and the Wii has run it's course. You can name every motion control genre in one hand. Mini-games. Dance games. Work out games and pet simulator games. Now to be fair we've had some mainstream games like Mario Galaxy that have shown the potential of motion control on popular core franchises, but that hasn't caught on. Right now motion control is riding the wave of what it knows best, Mini-games. Dance games. Work out games and pet simulator games.
i love my kinect! me and my friend played dance central for hours today.......as for the move i got one and i played its fair share but it totally ended up like the wii (of course i reserved sorcery cant wait!)
try singstar dance especially the lady gaga song it actually lets you do the poker face move with move, wheras on dance central it does not because kinect cannot tack all of your hands correctly also why have you not played on games like time crisis, re5:gold, heavy rain with move if you had i have a feeling you would not be saying this, right now
alright ill try that one ^^ and i wasn't happy with the new crisis, RE and heavy rain where meh with move controls,i do wanna try the sly collection as well
you know the funny thing is there is no smoke screen for move, it actually works as described
I know. It does. And it's not doing a gigantic over blown ad campaign trying to jam it down peoples throats. AND Sony is still offering amazing quality exclusive content...because they know not everyone wants the move. So...Yes...I'm done.
yeah uk retailers are literally out of stock of move but people dont believe it. @jnuel bubs+
Funny you say that becuase al the supermarkets, game shops , argos, electronic stores and blockbuster rental shops where i am in leeds, have plenty of them. A quick stock check online for instore pickup shows that your comment is nothing but childish trolling.
can you tell me where i can get an extra playstation move controller? i live in denmark and they are sold out everywhere:-( every internetsite i normally buy from is out of stock! can you tell me a good site, cause i cant find any. PEACE:-)
