Wii’s Threat Is Xbox Kinect Not PS3 Move

By Jamie Pert - Nov 8, 2010

Over the last few months we have posted a lot of articles regarding what will be better PlayStation Move or Kinect for Xbox 360, however a recent CVG articles suggests that the real competition is between the Wii and Kinect, whilst Move caters for hardcore gamers.

This is the opinion of an analyst called Billy Pidgeon, he suggest that Nintendo should consider a Wii price-cut to combat the launch of Kinect, especially with Black Friday just a few weeks away.

I don’t completely agree with Pidgeon, obviously a price cut will help Wii sales, however I think that their technology has gone has far as it can go, perhaps they should concentrate on a Wii 2 instead, let’s face it if people wanted a Wii they would have probably bought one by now.

The launch of Kinect will in my opinion allow the Xbox 360 to accommodate family games and health-centric games, if this is the case Nintendo may be in for a real battle.

I do still think that the real competition is between Kinect and Move, Kinect in my opinion will initially be more of an attraction for non-hardcore gamers, however as developers get more used to the tech they will begin introducing it into games more suited towards hardcore gamers.

Do you think that it is about time Nintendo concentrated on a successor to the Wii?
