The Gamer Sheep owns and loves both Kinect and Move. Each has its strength and offers something worthwhile. But each needs better titles and needs them fast as the holiday season speeds away.
i think most 3rd party devs are holding off until they see a proven success for either that is a full-fledged Move/Kinect game built from the ground up and will actually be able to compete with the core games for both systems...Sorcery comes to mind when i think of the Move...as far as Kinect, it has different projects under way, but not a lot of info on what they are and what they will be capable of come release day
Yeah, the peripherals need BIGGER games, because as sales show, gamers are clearly willing to buy into both of them. My buddies were over last night trying out Move Sports Champions and they had a blast doing sword-fighting, table-tennis, and disc golf (they disc in real life, too). But each of them said that they wish there were more "fleshed out" games, because they'd definitely play them.
This is an obvious generalization. It could be applied to virtually any game related product when released. Time for a little rationalizing. "Better" in what sense? Seeing as better is more of a subjective term like value (not monetary). People see things differently and there is no fault there. It is when someone tries to pass off their view as a standard to which others must adhere to. The real title should relate to the subject matter: "appeal". Because people have different tastes, not every title will appeal to everyone. That does not mean their presence in gaming is invalidated. For example, my wife loves Dr. Mario, tetris, other puzzle games. They dont appeal to me but I understand their relevance in gaming. I prefer god of war, halo, etc and my wife wont touch them. Understandable. It is inevitable that games will progress as time goes by. To think there would not be "better" ones days, weeks or months from now is ludicrous. It is a matter of personal opinion whether or not the ones currently available appeal to anyone. So far, it looks like they do. To others that expect more...they are coming.
Yes, they do.
as gamers we can all agree move one thing i hope is that sorcery game can be played with DS3 i think sony said all their games will be able to be played with DS3 but in 2011 move will get some hardcore titles and i was reading somewhere epic is working on a new game for natal
If Sorcery uses DS3, then Move is in serious trouble. There are currently several Move games that can not be played with the DS3. Sports Champion is the perfit example of such a game. If Sony plans to grow Move as a device of any significance on the PS3, they need to make games like sorcery exclusive to the device.
Though there should have been follow up games out by now. Not just a bunch of stuff with "TBA" release dates and next to no gameplay footage about them.
Gamer Sheep need better articles.
How did we not think of this...Better Games, so crazy it might just work
Imagine that... Kinect and Move need better games... Just like the PS3 and 360 when they first came out. Jesus... isn't anything allowed to come out of the gates, and not have the best games right away?
I agree. What is with the need better games nonsense. I agree that Move and especially Kinect need more and better games but for goodness sake they just came out. Did you think that every game would be a winner? Kinect has only two games worth playing right now and Move's strength so far is basically how well it can be integrated into existing games. At least wait until next year.No system in the history of gaming has ever launched with epic games from the start.
Why don't developers place their games on xbl and psn to start an gradually work there way up.
FYI...the Wii came out with Zelda when in it opened. Move and Kinect games are still lacking. They all feel half baked lacking quality, art, and online multiplayer. Notice there is no 10s between the two.
Kinect Sports is really fun online playing with a friend. ;) That game is pretty good.
That Zelda was a GC port with Wii control tacked on. Easy to score a "hit" Wii game when it's a 3yr developed GameCube title.
Seriously! How is that any different than RE5 or MAG with Move tacked on!
Neither were launch titles for one. Neither were available on the PS2 for two.
man i hope he doesn't fall, being all the way out on that limb.
move already has good games, people have just been bribed to say otherwise, if in doubt go check out the fight, heavy rain, eyepet, re5: gold, tumble, time crisis:raising storm all of them are good move games
Infamous 2(rumoured), KZ3, MGS:Rising (a very likely possibility), LBP2 Still many more likely to come. However, PS Move still has alot more potential and should be put to good use.
"people have just been bribed to say otherwise" I wouldn't say bribed! More like, one company didn't put out enough advertising dollars and its direct competitor put out the biggest ad campaign in history, leading to only one logical conclusion: The original companies product will be downplayed to cater to the companies product that is lining magazines pockets with ad dollars! ...or maybe I would!
This breaking news has just hit our desk: Water is wet! What a great read. /s
Well the thing is they do both need some quality games built specifically for each device, and that is what people are waiting for. As there are currently no 'must have' games for either. But at the same time, the Move has the edge over Kinect in the sense that it can be patched into and utilised in other games such as: Heavy Rain, MAG, Socom, ect ect ect. I am interested to see how Sorcery turns out, as that has the potential to be the first of the motion sensing only games that could really get things underway.
actually ive been playing MAG and Resident Evil 5 with the Move. And i look forward to Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3 with the move. but anyway... back to your point. yeah kinect sucks
the technology is still new and just like anything that is new at launch its going to take time for devs to perfect the technology, that's why I wasn't so quick to hope on the bandwagon, give it try with any new technology even consoles for that matter that launch is always rocky and over time it gets better with time.
I had to stop reading when I read "shovelware." This guy doesn't have a clue. I absolutely despise when people waste my time writing something uninformed. How can integrating controls into your best franchises be shovelware???? Perhaps he needs to do a bit more research. I currently own 10 MOVE games and I haven't even finished them all. They're all perfectly capable games and sit as great testament to the functionality PS MOVE provides. Furthermore, I'd like to see this guy's PSN ID or Gamertag? Does he have a Platinum or 1000 achievement points in each game? Who is he to make such a judgment call? They need more games...prove it! Show us how simple and easy the games are. Tell us why each platform despite having more than 10 titles available each needs more when most people haven't played more than 1 or 2 motion titles? So he's worried about the potential of motion gaming? Let's be honest. Anybody worried about the potential of motion gaming simply lacks imagination.
I think Kinect has some great reviews on some of there titles. I love what the kinect already has for games and there qulity..:)
