When Nintendo released the Wii and then the Wii Fit it had that market all to itself – but we knew that once Sony and Microsoft saw its potential, they would offer up their own version of this new way to control games. 2010 will be the year that motion control gaming will truly take-off with the announcements of Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox 360 and Move for the PS3.
Both these systems will make the Nintendo Wii look outdated – but it has to take some of the credit for the evolution of the controller. The Kinect and Move offer full body and controller tracking, but both look and react differently. The former has full body control, whereas the latter has a simpler approach.
Matt Burns from Crunch Gear said that when you look closer at how both of them control a game you could see that both are a rip-off to the Nintendo Wii. However, as more games come out both systems will evolve into much more than they are now.
Burns tries to make it simple for us by explaining that the PlayStation 3 Move is all about the game itself, but the Kinect goes much further and could be onto something huge in the gaming market.
Now that we are well into E3 2010 we are certain that you have learned all you need to know about both systems – the question is what one of the two is the better system?
