Sony Move vs Microsoft Natal

movevsnatalI knew Sony were bringing out a motion controller of some kind but Jesus it really does look like a bit too close to the Wiimote doesn’t it? It’s apparently lighter, perhaps slightly more ergonomic and it definitely looks better but still. Looks like the next big fight is a match up between the Sony Move and Microsoft’s Project Natal where “you are the controller”. A bit like the old Sony EyeToy but supposedly much better. There are plenty of developers onboard for both new peripherals so we’ll just have to see how they cope with lag and whether your movements actually translate properly into onscreen action.

I still think the PS3 is going to come charging through into the ascendancy, let’s face it everyone who wants a Wii has one and then there are another few million people who don’t want one but they already have one too. With these new motion controllers for the two big competitors there is quite simply no excuse left to want a Wii, it is inferior in every respect.

The Project Natal title Milo which is being developed by Lionhead still wins the creepiest game award. Who wants a young boy to talk to living in their television? I don’t even want to answer that question.

    From what I can see, theXbox Kinect is more than just a family games console, after all you can do a lot more stuff that you can’t do with the Wii. The graphics are better & Wii fanboy or not, you can’t denythe Hard Drive storage on the new Xbox is far superior to the Wii. There is no need for controllers so less battery and recharging cost. If you have a young family like I do, you don’t have to worry about the kids misusing the controllers or dropping them in there juice. Kinect does have voice recognition so if the kids are getting out of order and reality wrestling rather than virtual wrestling you can just shout pause and Kinect will pause. Pity this doesn’t generally work with the kids, well not in my house anyway. There is no doubt your whole family will have a lot of fun with the Kinect and it is taking interactive gaming to another level. To be fair , Microsoft were falling behind a bit recently in the games console world and it’s about time they stepped up to the plate and with Xbox Kinect, they have done exactly that in my opinion. Whether it has bugs or little minor problems remains to be seen and as with all these things, the proof is in the ongoing sales rather than the initial sales onslaught of inquisitive techno-holics who buy any new gadget released.
