It seems everyone got a Wii, PSmove or Kinect this year, so what are your thoughts on them all?
Wii has alot of games, The Move and Kinects software kinda sucks at this point. I personally think the Move is the best device of all of them personally. Followed by the Wii, followed by Kinect. How is my above comment trolling??? Ask ANYONE....the best game for Kinect is DANCE CENTRAL. If some has a problem w/ that they should be mad at MS...NOT ME. It`s the truth.
Because the MOD knows the point of your comment and thought it was flame bait. Pretending to have a non biased opinion towards non Sony products probably bugged him. The 2nd part of this comment is proof of your goal and doesn't even make any sense. You think Move and Kinect have crap software and the Wii has a lot of games but the defense of your comment is claiming Kinect only has one game? I think people are voting with their money.
Welcome to LAST year.. Another fan bloggger who doesn't own the Kinect trying to pretend to give 'fair' analysis on it.. I own all three and like the rest of the agenda driven fan kid blogs he article is FAIL on so many levels.. For the Wii he uses 'Wii Sports' and 'Raving Rabbids'. 80 Million people bought the Wii on the strength of Wii Sports. We know it works the world has owned it for 4 years now and it is the BEST representation for the Wiimote. For Move, he uses Sports champions, Eye Pet, Time Crisis 4, Shoot the Movies, the PSN demos and plans to use Heavy Rain. But, predictably at this point, we see a smeared Kinect review which makes it clear this guy doesnt even own the device. Instead of using the pack-in game Kinect Adventures or ANY of the best Kinect games, he instead he chooses to use one of the worst games on the system 'Game Party: In Motion as the ONLY game for his analysis. So to be clear..you compare Wii Sports, Sports Champions and don't use Kinect Sports? Silly You use Eye Pet for Move and claim that it is amazing the way you 'interact' with the creature and don't use Kinectimals for Kinect? If your 'amazed' by Eye Pet then your going to be blown away by Kinectimals. It doesnt matter, what his opinions are of the devices or games but it's clear that this fan blogger loses ALL credibility when he clearly doesnt give all the devices a fair shake in a 'comparison' article. But, we all know the reason why..this isn't the first or the last one we will see like this Evil
WOw...A couple bone heads think they slapped someone silly. Guys like you make me happy to see Kinect proving you wrong at every turn. DOn't get mad at me because Move sucks.
People on this site and in general in life make up their own intentions of other actions way to often. I`m off to go play a game, I don`t have time to talk about this nonsense.
How am I not surprised that the JLM (Justice League of Muppet's) is here to use the same old tired excuses about there favorite $150 remote control "Move is nothing more that the Wii mote" "Kinect is the most unique experience" "SALES SALES SALES" lets see when it comes to what matters Quality, Games , reliability and playability 1.Wii 2.Move 3.Kinect even if you add fanboy logic SALES Wii destroys all. Move and kinect have just launched with maybe more than 1 game everyone needs to get but in future uses Move wins against Kinect by far it's now a proven fact that for Kinect to even make anything but Kiddie carnival, Dancing/Exercise games there going to have to add a controller of some type (like the Wii/Move mote). Kon below trolls are like gay people they can always tell there own kind.
"I`m off to go play a game, I don`t have time to talk about this nonsense." The way I see it you sit around your PC all day every day waiting for 360 news to troll. You don't have time for this my but! all you do is waste time trying to spin or downplay the 360 every day of the week. You chose PS MOVE because you're a die hard PS3 zealot. You don't have time for nonsense but why is nonsense the only thing you come to N4G for? You guys are going to have to deal with Kinect being a success and Move not so much. You're so bitter you waste a Sunday evening trying to cope with Sony's failure by attacking Kinect?
"I`m off to go play a game, I don`t have time to talk about this nonsense." Or how about your out of bubbles and can finally stfu! Tired of reading this Wimote and Move nonsense where there nothing more than generic wrist devices. Kinect is the only tech that offers true motion and immersion into gaming world. Move has not proved anything and is nothing I repeat nothing than an alternative controller created to confuse people into thinking it's on the Wii level.
Lol @ ignorance. Tinasumsum accuses everyone of being a fanboy if they say anything even remotely negative about microsoft, and lowcarb accuses the Move of being pure wrist movement. News flash! Kinect lags. Kinect lags alot. Dance Central doesn't even track your body. It only notices gesture movements like Just Dance on the Wii. Move is the only motion control device that is anywhere close to 1:1 and augmented reality. Stop being fanboys. It's annoying. The Wii has the games. The Move has the hardware. Kinect has......what exactly?
Who the heck is this Lyr1c above me? Dude shut up...you make yourself sound so clueless and dumb by saying Kinect lags. It's does not lag and that 1:1 nonsense needs to stop here and now because it doesn't matter. Move is simply not needed (because why)it's an option and a gimmick with no true potential other than replacing the standard controller. Kinect is where it's at so deal with it and quit spreading fud. That 1:1 augmented crap means nothing when I'm playing a game (no Lag) recognizing my full body movements and putting me actually in the game. You keep playing in the past with that Wii wannabe not needed controller. Just watch Sony try and answer Kinect with a new eyetoy and you change your tone with excuses.
Lol @ lowcarb. QQ some more. Kinect lags. You see how many disagrees you have? I've played Kinect. Don't you dare insult my (and everyone else's) intelligence by trying say that it doesn't lag. Not everyone is a brain dead sheep. Lmao...... "1:1 doesn't matter" Right kid. And human's don't need water to survive. /s
lmao Lyr1c just slapped u silly. "1:1 nonsense needs to stop here and now because it doesn't matter." wow, that is pathetic.
No surprise, you often troll in these kind of articles.
- PS Move is like a super-Wii, in terms of tech within the controller itself, the PS3 system and the PS-Eye cam, which is well capable of motion sensing on its own as well. - Kinect is a bit more of a full-fledged version of the PS-Eye(if you will), disregarding any controller input. - BUT the Wii has the most software by a landslide. Main reason for that is that the Wii's motion controls are part of the system, while Kinect and Move are add-ons. So when it comes to motion controls for me, it's the Wii and good ol' DDR :P
You get trolled report by 360 fanboys, they don't like your comment as usal, i know that i have the same problems and mods do nothing about it, they like that people get reporting for trolling by fanboys. "Because the MOD knows the point of your comment and thought it was flame bait" Boy, you don't even know how the report system works? it's not by mods but by fanboys who cliking with many accounts on trolling report so that he get a ban for 7 days and bubble low becouse of his comment. His comment has nothjing to do with trolling. I'm get sick for this stupid kids flame Site, runs by fanboys al over the time.
Why people keep comparing kinect with Wiimote and Move?!
Because if it wasn't for Wii, there wouldn't be any motion controllers this gen
Kinect is the most unique experience out the 3
pseye is a part of move. Your point is invalid.
fun. I don't feel hesitant at all to try KZ3 with the Move but I'm skeptical when it comes to the Kinect and non mini/dancing games. The Move also can be used in the fitness/dancing genre but thats not what I;m interested in. PS. I didn't disagree with you, I tried the Kinect its unique and works but it isn't practical for gaming purposes.
I don't care if it's is unique. The games aren't. They are nothing we haven't seen before and they are nothing that is of any interest to me. I play games like Killzone and that is why I prefer move.
Kinect for me and I have played them all. Like Loner said, most unique experience. And I know some of you guys dont like it, but the Move is to similar an experience as the Wii.
Lmao. If Kinect is unique, then so is the Zune.
they are similar, but what is funny to me is: the games that are on kinect would be considered shovelware and crap if it was on the Wii. Heck some of you consider Monster Hunter Tri as crap, but Dance Central isn't? name me one kinect game that isn't of the same quality of the stuff u call shovelware on the Wii if a pack in game like flinsmash is better than all your games, that says a lot. Kinect would have been cool and unique if they would have waited and perfected it, but instead we have a rushed product from a scraed Microsoft who desparately wanted to hold on to the number 2 spot.
Kinect. It is a new, fresh experience.
New? Fresh? lol ok
I know what your thinking. b-b-b-b-b-u-t the eyetoyz!!! Bah.
So you concur, Lol Besides, who said anything about the EyeToy? The PS Eye on PS3 is more advanced, able to detect body movements better than the PS2 EyeToy.
@Above PSEye and Kinect are completely different. If you have the time google "Difference Between PsEye and Kinect" Please, how many times i will have to explain this for people like you?
Here you go http://sweediesplace.wordpr... Don't forget the awesome games you can play on Kine--- no
This story again? Haven't we had this article like 400 times already?
I'm wondering when we can start reporting these stories w/ the same damn content and title as duplicates... I guess they do come from diff authors.. >.>
PS Move is the same as the Wiimote... and the Wii has more and better games then Move. As for Kinect, good or bad, it's something different.
Try Move, now try the Wii, now back to the Move, notice how different they are? No? Well maybe because you don't own both and are just spewing BS. The Move is 100x more accurate than the Move. It is also kinda obvious the Wii has better games. Its like bashing the upcoming 3DS over not having as many titles as the original DS.
i was hoping for some old-spice-like ownage there. The beginning of your comment mislead me lol
Since when Wiimote have the same Tech as PS Move to say: ''PS Move is the same as the Wiimote'' And I doubt you played any PS Move game to say such a thing. Sigh.
I have all 3 and the only one I really like is th Wii but I think it's because you have no other real option but to use the wiimote, With move I miss the ease of a duelshock and found the games that are around at the min a little dull, but it's easy to use due to having the same principles as the Wii just a little more advanced With kinect I've only got dance central and the free arcade game that comes in the box, both are slow to start and awkward to navigate, but with a controller for the menus it feels a little faster but only while you can use then, I also find the space it uses to big way to much for stardard size room mines 12ft x 11ft, All in all I expect the move and kinect to get better and when the Wii 2 comes I'm sure it will push them a little harder
I can't really comment on Kinect because I only tried the demo at Best Buy briefly but the software I've seen for it as far as games go isn't making me want to go out and grab one. I'm not a big fan of the Wii. The idea was good but the implementation could have been better and thats what Sony did, utilize the tech better. I can hit home runs on Wii sports by flicking my wrist, good luck doing stuff like that with the MOVE, it doesn't happen. Granted, you weren't meant to cheat the Wii by just flicking your wrist but you can do it. I'm not saying all Wii games are crap its just not what it could have been. MOVE on the other hand is utilizing the tech for both casual and hardcore games, reaching out to everyone. I can relax with casual games on Sports Champions or play an FPS with MOVE. I just bought The Fight: Lights Out and it amazes me the game got the terrible reviews it did. Its not 'amazing' and there are some hiccups here and there with the accuracy but I'm very impressed with it overall and am enjoying it, even tho I'm sweating my butt off in the process. The bottom line is we've got 3 companies fighting for our money and we can enjoy the benefits of their competition, especially if you can afford all three because then you can just pick the best of each. If you can't afford all three then appreciate the gems you get for your pick and understand that there are gems on the other ones to.
The fight lights out is great. 120 fights and online easily makes it worth the $40.
The Wii had the Nintendo brand name, Kinect a $500m ad campaign with it and Move having the PR rep that they're better than the Wii. Kinect has obviously beaten Move which is the better versatile motion device, but both show the sad weakness of this whole console gen of being rushed to market with more emphasis on hype than ability. Wont have any real games for months. Meanwhile people are saying the Wii has finally run out of steam as the gimmick it was.
As for not having any real games what are you playing? MOVE has plenty of titles out that are 'real games'. - MAG got the patch and with enough practice it works very well. - Heavy Rain got a MOVE patch and added replay value to the entire game with it, hows that not real? - Sports Champions, while a 'casual' title is a full fledged game that is challenging as well. - The Fight: Lights Out (see my above comment before yours) may have gotten bad reviews but is a full fledged game regardless and a workout to boot. - The Shoot was made for MOVE. - Time Crisis says hello. There are plenty of other titles as well but it baffles me to assume there are no 'real' games for the MOVE when it clearly has a mixed bag of offerings, for casual, and hardcore alike. *Edit* Thx Parapraxis for the clarification, I read it wrong the first time ;)
"Kinect has obviously beaten Move which is the better versatile motion device" Meaning kinect has trumped move (in sales) even though Move is a better device. He didn't say Kinect was more versatile. I'm not saying that I agree or disagree with what Godmars said, just clarifying for you.
wii for me i dont wana spend 50 dollers on a move cus i already freaken spent 60 on controlers that dont even last a year so yeah... i wonder how long move motes last... lets be real here sony controlers love to move on its own lol and break shortly after :o i sence move moving on its own but will any1 admit it nope lol then again no ones playing with it XD
Wow, you must be unlucky. I have had 3 DS3s that shipped (in december of 07) from Japan before they were available in North America a Sixaxis and 2 move controllers and a navi, yet none of them have died on me.
Same here the only DS3 that has broken on me was because I smashed when I got pissed off at Madden. 3+ years and none of my 4 batteries have died.
My first sixaxis controller died like 3 months ago. Sorry you had bad luck but I haven't read a rash of complaints about controllers not lasting anywhere.
well they dont completly die they just start spazzing like waking / botons bein stuck or doint things on thair own it was the same for ps2 lol thats one thing i love about that bulky game cube controler was it was pritty comfy and u could beath the living crap out of it and it wouldent break
your just playing too much on your ps3 :)
XD nah thats not it i barly play it my bros play it maybe thats why lol
The Move is awesome. Try Tumble, the accuracy is amazing. It just needs more games.
Personally for me - I would go with Kinect, then Move and forget the Wii its dead.
Imo the Wii is still the best on the market because it has alot more games than move and kinect but I think as time goes on I think kinect will become the better of the 3 devices as games are being built from the ground up for the device the same as the Wii has had. But I only see kinect becoming the device to have for code and none core if companys design the software right to work with the joypad and kinect. I like moves hardware it is very good the way it works but because Sony have not really set any ground rules with the device I see this being its biggest problem. Most games for move can use the ds3 and are designed for the ds3 with move support added onto it so you don't see move at its best. Also with the different ways you can use move dose not help some games need 2 move devices some need one move device and some need a move and analogue stick. Plus some games need you to move the eye toy below the tv and look at the floor others need it above the tv and I just think this will put alot of people off the device when picking there console. But at the end of the day every one is different and likes different things so its all about yourself get what's best for you not because everyone on this site says you should get one.
Party in motion is hands down the worst kinect game. Many reviews claim the game is just broken. You'll find the wii party in motion is also very poor. I'm not sure why you used wii sports as one benchmark, and party in motion for another. It's pretty much botched from the get-go.
Move/PS Eye combination>>Wiimote> Kinect
Lots of MS bloggers here talking about "unique" and "potential" and "fresh". Don't seem to get that non-lag and accuracy has more potential.
