GameDynamo takes a look at PlayStation Move and Kinect and what they have to offer. Did they rip us off or is there still hope?
i would say kinect for paying 150$ and the only good game on it so far is dance central
Dance Central does look like the game to get for Kinect. I know a few people with that game and they love it. The other games like Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports, etc.. were like one time plays. Fun, just not fun enough to return like Dance Central. Move for me, the game to get is The Fight right now. I highly recommend sports champions as well, displays pretty damn good what the Move can do. But The Fight has me addicted right now. Its a pretty good workout and fun at the same time. I don't think either is a waste of money, that all comes down to personal opinion.
yup, the fight looks awesome the only problem is that i got it for Christmas but all move controller are sold out so i cant get a second one have to wait till its in stock
Kinect Sports a one time play???? Your kidding, right. Me and my family havent stopped playing Kinect Sports since Christmas. We love it. Table Tennis online is our fav.
Easily the best. Clearly everyones situation is not the same, I was just commenting on the vast majority of what I'm seeing, which is that game is a one time play to the majority of my friends and family that have the game.
It is funny how people, who don't own Kinect, are experts at which games are best on the system and which one make you want to play again. They usually have a friend (which is even more unbelievable), or have tried it at a friends house. I am your friend too. I have had Kinect since launch. Kinect is a solid gaming device, and its games are simple to pickup and play, but you actually get better at them over time like any other game. You can't just have a one off and say: I did Kinect and it sucks! Or you can't say a friend told me DC is the only good game. I received DC on Thursday and have not opened it Yet, because I am to score from your Shape to really do dancing. Please speak about what you know and stop making fools of yourselves. Please. @EasilyTheBest: May be we should start asking people when they comment on games to show gamer-tags. These guys would have to show they atleast reached pro in 3 of the 6 K-sports game before even getting to post an opinion on it.
Hey BigPappy Gamertag on Xbox for my brother, who has Kinect right next to my PSeye on top of our tv, DUTCHCRACKA. Look it up. I played the games on his Tag with him, Dance Central and Kinect Adventures. Our friend Greg, his tag is on my bro's friends list and I'm not going to give it out since its not mine. But he has Kinectimals, Kinect Sports, Fighters Uncaged, Kinect Adventures and Sonic Freeriders. Need any more? My Tag, SoloGuitarist89, PSN, MADPWNER. I've played the games, don't try that on me.
neither are a waste of $$ so long as they deliver on what they are designed for. You cant fault something if it fulfills on the promise it made regardless of the quality. You can, however, if something is released and nothing is ever done with it from that point on. A few examples would be ROB the robot, or even the hdd for the ps2. Both are examples of useless tech that didnt have to be useless. They failed because the parent companies gave up on them. Sony I think was coerced by Square to make the HDD for FF11 and nothing ever became of it. Sad really as they could have done so much more. Move/Kinect...so far they are delivering on the initial offering of games/gameplay that is different from traditional controls. So early with the doom and gloom articles is a sure sign of a successful product. Look at Wii, PS3 and 360 and the doom and gloom articles when they came out and compare them to their current rate of success.
I have been a huge sony fanboy since I bought my 60gb launch PS3, but with Kinect launching and my wife wanting it, I finally bought a xbox360. But before I get into that, let me tell you about my ps move experience. I was going to wait to buy it until more games came out, but I was given the controller for my birthday so I was "forced" (not really) to try it out. I have played most of the move demo's (I don't like RTS so no RUSE); tumble and the shoot were really the only cool ones I liked. Eye petz was dumb for an adult as I expected, the party was right up there and beat sketcher was only a little better. Also, I thought heavy rain was better without the move. Since that time I have bought bass pro fishing (way better and ton's of fun with the move, but too simple); I bought Resident Evil gold edition (much improved being able to directly aim and shoot on the screen); and recently sport champions (very fun without the warm fuzzy feeling of wii resort or kinect sports; it's has more of a hardcore gaming feel). All in all having now owned the move, kinect, and wii I can say that I believe the move to be more suited for player such as my self preferring playing hardcore games by themselves. The wii and kinect seem to be more family oriented. That it not to say I don't enjoy playing them. I recently sold my wii since I have the kinect and move. The only thing I actually hate about the move is the camera. I can't understand why they didn't release a 720P HD camera with the move. Other things I dislike are how if you point your move off the screen too far, the calibration gets off (this can be fixed by going too far off the opposite side of the screen or running the calibration tool) and just in general no real major support from Sony in the marketing or game publishing areas. They have a great accessory and need to treat it as such. Now for the kinect. I bought Kinect a couple of months ago and I started with just playing Kinect adventures. I actually do like the game. People need to give it a chance. It's more fun with two people playing though (but I believe that to me true about most motion games). Then I bought Dance Central for the wife. I've played it a bunch since then although I suck at dancing; my wife plays it much more than me though. Then I bought Kinect sports. My wife likes the bowling in that a lot better because you don't need to have a controller. I prefer the bowling on wii resort, I had way more control on it. We both love all of the track and field games on kinect sports as well as volleyball. Finally I just bought fitness your shape evolved or whatever its called. I have been doing that and I am not joking when I say you can work your muscles to failure on that game. It is awesome. I recommend that to anyone wanting to do in home cardio. So all in all I believe it comes down to a personal preference on which systems to get. I think one truely should own all of the systems to get the best gaming experience. If you play alone most of the time, I think the move will be the best motion experience. If you play with family of mostly older ages, I think kinect is great. And if you have young kids or prefer nintendo games overall then get a move. What do you think?
@cpm10682: That was the best review and comparison I have seen on N4G for Kinect and Move. I don't agree with everything you say, but I know you mean every word of it. You may not need my respect, but you have no choice, I'm giving it regardless. Neither of these products were mis-represented. People who bought them knew exactly what they were getting and how much it would cost. They are many on the net who write these opinion pieces to play on fanboy emotions, just for the hits.
Cant you guys see that one of these article are put on N4G everyday and everyday you guys argue over and over again on the same topic? Tomorrow there will be another Kinect and Move comparision of some sort. I wish people who write game news or articles do it creatively. Not the same rehash shit.
I can see this... and lose bubbles for being cynical because of it. *that and being offensive to the odd web douche
We have nothing else to do.
Move will probably die out like the EyeToy/PSEye and Betamax. So it would be better to look at the long term but short term Kinect is the biggest waste of money.
Eyetoy sold 10mil
With an install base of 140 million. Kinect sold 8 million with a 50 million install base and oh yeah, in 2 months and is still selling.
Lol trolls saying MOVE will die. Maybe in your dream land?
It won't die any time soon... But then it won't be held in the same regard as a Gameboy or Snes either - same goes with Kinect. Big futuristic gimmicks with short term merit. As it stands, both are fun to play until the next big thing we're told to buy.
Yeah but it did great for its time before motion gaming became a cool fad. The Wii really made motion gaming popular but the eyetoy was the first to have some sort of commercial success.
yeah and kinect will die out just like hd-dvd oh wait hd-dvd also sold more for a while and looky what happened...
The move won't die because it's an accessory. How long has the ps eye been in stores? Almost since launch with almost no games for it. I hope the same doesn't happen to the move, but Sony does need to kick up its marketing and first party game development.
thats a good question, seriously
Hhhhmmm ... Well, lets see .... hands free ... or a roll-on de-orderiant stick? :)
The one that have good games and variety for Gamers. From Casual to real Core Gamer.
Wii? Great choice
Kinect has no games.
Thats wierd, looking at sales charts, I see 4 kinect games and 1 Move game. For a system with no games, it is selling alot of games.
OMG back to sales again. it must be amazing if 8 million moms own a kinect.
No. I mean, playable enjoyment, silly.
Well,with kinect up to 4 ppl can play with no added camera.with MOVE more accesories has to be purchased.
2 players max buddy get ur facts straight
Actually he is correct up to 4 people can play. Kinect sports Bowling for instance. The players just have to wait there turn, but only 2 players can play at the same time... So its you that needs to get his facts straight buddy....
Both are equal pieces of useless hardware that aren't worth half what they cost. That is the only right answer.
It's only right if you don't like motion gaming or have a family that likes them.
The Wii comes with 2 games, and a Wii-mote(With motion plus) and nun-chuck, for $179. http://www.ign.com/videos/2... http://www.ign.com/videos/2... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Thats why Nintendo chose the "Sensor bar", its even patented too.
Kinect, because it has no gaming applicability outside eye-toy type of games- It is an Ir-depth,30fps eye-toy. And it is way to expensive for what it does. There will be some cool software for it, but more or less eye-toy type of games, with way better Z-axis tracking.(It has way cooler use outside of gaming) You will see some cool dance games, fitness games, party and mini games.(and even young children can have fun with it) If anybody can please explain to me how it would work in a core game (such as shooters, platformers, basically any standard game genre,..) I will take it all back and apologize. - - - Move is basically more precise Wii, that tracks Z-axis , kind of a 3d mouse without friction (that is great, but there is also downside to not having friction though),.. And it can do core games, same as Wii.
Why choose? They're both just awful.
I have both and I've enjoyed my Kinect much more than my Move. I like Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures, my daughter (who is only 3) enjoys those games, as well as Kinectimals, and my wife enjoys Dance Central. We also have Your Shape, which is a great fitness game. I have a few and demoed many more Move games. The only ones currently out that I like are The Shoot and Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011. So, for my family, Kinect wins.
Finally someone else who owns both move and Kinect! Bubble for you!
That's my experience as well. Any I can say I've been a Sony fanboy up until the kinect launch and my wife had me buy it.
I own all 3 consoles and I must say that Move is easily the best motion controls.The Wii is the worst console I've ever owned and Kinect has no interest to me. I was one of the 10.5 million Eyetoy owners and although Kinect is better,the gameplay(physical movements)are the same but with more lag.The 3rd dimension means less if the accuracy is low.It does not rotation measurements for example.I think Kinect is cool tech but limited for actual games. Problem is,I can't say either Move of Kinect are value for money because at the moment only Sports Champions and Tumble are must plays for me on Move.There is nothing on Kinect I want and people I know that have played both said Kinect falls short. Best tech combo is PS3 and Move,next 360 and Kinect,worst is Wii BUT at the moment Wii has the best choice of games by far so neither of the others are value for money.
i'll go with both as well. both bring descent tech, but with out interesting games i no need for either. a few games announced at TGS have me my attention, and Sorcery with Move looks cools.
I don't see how you can compare a controller-less system with a control based system. Move vs wii makes sense, but the kinect is different. And if you truely own all three of these motion based systems, I question how you can't like dance central, kinect sports, or fitness evolved. They are awesome. On the move I also like the shoot and tumble, plus resident evil gold and bass pro fishing.
"PlayStation Move or Kinect, which is the Biggest Waste of Money?" Well Kinecto costs more so......
Judging by the games, i say that Kinect is expensive but don't have many quality games. So, if you are willing to wait some time for good games to show up, your money might be well spent. The Move has some great games to be released this year, but the problem is if you want to play with your friends, you have to buy more controllers, as for Kinect, you can play with more than one people w/o the necessity of buying additional controllers.
Move is an option for gamers. Kinect seems more and more the only choice if you want to play on 360.
they are both wastes of money
Kinect. I'm afraid the games compatible with move have more appeal to the core fanbase. Kinect has copied all eye toy and Wii games for casuals. Sony have a better lineup for their fanbase. Kinect at this point in time is just trying to cash in on the casual market. And no form of MS PR nonsense will change that.
Kinect as it's just crap period. PEW, PEW, PEW BUTTONS are NEEDED MOVE all the way
None of them are a waste of money, I personally own a PlayStation Move, but I'm not just going to shoot down the Kinect just because I don't own one. I know they both provide decent games, so I see no point in saying which one is a biggest waste of money.
Well said man.
Judging by price of these devices, games that are out and games coming out this year than move wins with a huge margin...
i guess if kinect is leading in sales it would be the overall greater waste of money. but i do think both are worth it in there own ways when my kids are old enough to play games im sure ill get a kinect.
I've got Move, which is rubbish and waste of money, Kinect - well, i've tried it in Toys R US - equally rubbish. Save your money people both are bad.
Move cost me the price of a game so it wasn't a waste of money to me.It's is only a waste of money if you are not satisfied with the device. Move for me has me playing Sports Champions and Tumble constantly. A lot of people on this site I am guessing never used it so they jump to say it's no good. I have played Kinect and really don't see what is the big deal playing games that most of them you can play on the Wii or Move with less effort.But like I said that is my opinion. A suggestion though. Stop approving this kind of flamebait please. I think everyone on this site has already given their opinions and views on their motion control of their preference. It's a good thing all gamers don't have the negative attitude that so many of you have or no console would ever sell. All devices started off without much to play until the games got better. I don't remember the 360, PS3 or Wii exactly having hundreds of games to play at [email protected] otacon68. Well said. People fail to realize that Move game cost so much less then Kinect games by as much as $40.I could buy Tumble for 10.00 instead of Kinect Sports for almost as much as a normal game.
Kinect isn't very realistic is it? I was playing table tennis by waving my hand, and allmost slapped a child standing next to me when i tried to smash..lol. I would rather hold a bat or move controller to make it look more realistic and believable. I wonder how would driving games will be like on Kinect without sterring wheel and paddles.
Well you have lost me Dug.
So you would have rather have hit that child with a bat instead of almost slapping them?
if you're curious about driving games on Kinect, there is a free demo available on XBL of JoyRide. but it sucks, so i wouldn't recommend it.
Interesting way to frame the question. So far I haven't invested in either because I'm waiting for more software before I make up my mind.
Its about the games and price for the accessory. Move with camera is like $100 and kinect without the power block is $150. Now we have to look at the games. Kinect has Kinect Jow Ride, Kinect adventures, Dance central, kinectimals, kinect sports, and your shape fitness involved,fighters uncaged, harry potter, sonic riders, zumba fitness, and some other fitness games. PSeye/move has Operation: Creature Feature, MAG, SOCOM 4,Kung-Fu Live, eye pet, killzone 3, Modern combat, GT5(head tracking), time crisis razing storm, heavy rain, dead space extraction, LBP sackboy prehistoric moves, littlebigplanet 2 and some others.
@Loaner, your alright, some of these blind loyalist freak over any critical comment towards their system as if it pays their rent and gets them a gf
aaahhh flamebait... and fanboys..... another Move VS kinect article. Simple question simple answer For a more ( but not only!) casual gamer, Kinect wins way over Move. For a more (but not only!) core gamer, Move wins way over Kinect. Simple as that. I think playing halo with kinect is just crap and playing dance central with the move is removing a lot of movement detection (overall body) compared to kinect. Gamers playing dance central are probably not posting on N4G compared to the playstation move players. If all dance central fans were posting here, they would defend their game. 2 Great products, 3 if you count the wii! wii = cheapest, but still nice features for the price. Kinect= cost more, but with great additionnal features and more players without having to buy addons (nunchuck). Move= cost more, but offers more accuracy and precision.
child of eden is not kinect only, people need to remember that. Also I have yet to imagine a scenario where even with using a controller how a racing game can be better with kinect(referring to Forza 4), I would love to hear some inputs on that. Oh and Codename D? I saw the single trailer as well, not exactly much to be excited about, I see flaming baseball and gallery of enemies dying in a fiery explosion...yea no gameplay and from the baseball in his hands it might be a shooting gallery using flaming baseballs instead of a gun, who knows.
I have Move and I've also had a good play on Kinect over the xmas period at my brothers house. Move was worth punting some cash at because the risk was lower but there have only been a few games worth getting for it. Although I remember the vitriol towards the PS3 for having no games in the first months too and look where it is now. Kinect has potential but it hasnt made me go running out to buy it. Maybe if it was cheaper by about 2/3's I'd go get it but it hasnt blown me away. I'd say give at least a year to each tech, then we can judge more appropriately.
Hey now. I just played LittleBigPlanet 2 with the Move controller and it was a blast. I'll also be playing Killzone 3 next month with the controller. Move rocks!
I can't possibly see why anyone would be interested in the move. Why would you rather wave your arms around with games, when you can just use a regular controller for most of them? Kinect seems to be bringing family gaming to the 360 in a different way than the wii did.
Kinectimals I would like to add while it is more for young ones the controls are spot on and it is just about the best looking Kinect game so far. Incredibly polished and my 5 and 11 year simply love it. Can you ask for more really? I own both a PS3 and 360 and only have kinect so far, but I want the move as well. The disc golf looks awesome and looks like it would be a blast, as well as golf. Sadly no golf for Kinect.
