New Xbox 360 Kinect and PS3 Move: Six months too early

By Peter Chubb - Jun 20, 2010

We have discussed the new Xbox 360 Kinect and the Sony PS3 Move many times– such as the other day where we said that the former was laggy and the latter was precise. We understand that both systems are good in there own way, but there have been suggestions that the technology is six months too early for the market.

Jared Newman from Technologizer is the guy who made the claim – so what made him come up with this opinion? Both aim to de-throne the Nintendo Wii, but they have taken this kind of gaming to the next level. However, the PlayStation Move is the closet to the Wii – although with far better graphics.

Newman has now tried two games developed to work in conjunction with Kinect (formally Natal). The games were the finished product but felt more like demos, he added that although it was nice to be able to do more with the Xbox, it was still like a Wii at the end of the day.

This is the same as the PS3 Move, all the games that Newman tried were the same as Nintendo’s old faithful. It is as if both Sony and Microsoft have rushed the new motion-sensing add-ons, and that they could have had least another six months development time.
