PS3 Move Will Outsell Kinect for Xbox 360: Survey

We have on a number of occasions discussed the Sony PS3 Move and the Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox 360. I have been accused of being a PS3 fanboy, but I have just been stating what has been reported about both devices. I feel that I might get attacked again when I report that a recent survey shows that the Sony motion-sensing device will outsell the Microsoft counterpart.

The survey was conducted by the website Groupola.com, and from the 2,000 gamers asked 23 percent of Xbox 360 owners said that they would purchase the Kinect, compared to 64 percent of PlayStation 3 owners saying that they would consider buying the Move.

77 percent of Xbox owners believe that the price of the peripheral is too expensive, which was always going to factor into things. Dan Howdle from NowGamer also points out that only 19 percent of Xbox 360 owners were happy with the titles coming out to support Kinect.

Do not get me wrong, the Kiinect does look a fantastic system, it is just the price that seems to be its mains issue. Which of the two would you purchase?

I like what eveyone is saying. I agree with everything everyone has said.(It's their own opinion) I find that MS might not have gone to the right place with the kinect. As did PS3, they only made it so that they would have an extra edge over the WII-seeing how it has the WII controller with reacts with the motion sensor. I've owned both the XBOX 360 and the PS3, I got rid of my PS3 due to the fact that the online (for moder warfare 2 would always crash). I kept my XBOX360, due to the fact that the… Read more »

Kinect will fail hard as it is a step in the wrong direction. 360 is about shooters, well can't shoot without a button. Also every demo I've seen is inaccurate and has no good games on it. Move is much more accurate, can do kids or hard core games and definitely can do shooters/race cars. This is yet another example of Xbox failing. RROD, RDOD, Scratching disks, pay to play, pay to stream, pay for every little thing you get from xbox. PS3 – blu ray, free online gaming, best/true exclusives (360 supposed exclusives available on PC), internet browser, streaming… Read more »

KINECT ADVENTURES which bundles with Kinect pre order sales are at 100,000 with 10 weeks until launch, so things are looking very good for Kinect.

SPORTS CHAMPIONS which comes with the MOVE bundle(USA ONLY, demo disc for Europe) has only managed to pre order 24,000 with only 3 weeks until launch and is not even in the top 20.

Intrstingly Gran Turismo 5 launches the same month as Kinect and Kinect is now getting higher weekly pre orders

PS3 move can always be upgraded to do what the Kinetic does… so in that regard, PS3 has far more potential…

If I can pick up a stick and use it as a lightsaber in game I will be happy! I aint showing anyone this so called true potential because it's there for YOU to see. Just use your imagination! And no Kinect hasnt got the best line up of games for launch, but you can bet your ass that they already have something special in mind!

Kinect might fail because…. You cant play FPS games with Kinect so no Gears, Halo, L4D, (so thats 90% of 360 owners already out). Lets face it Halo and Gears are the primary AAA franchises that have sold the 360. But thats not what Kinect is about. It's new tech and as such needs new game genres. Microsoft now need to come up with new games that break the mould and they need to be thinking fast or Kinect will tank before it has chance to get settled in. If MS can get Kate & Milo working (I know the… Read more »

You know what really tickles me about this?

Sony has always had a big box with everything included for a big price. Microsoft has always gone for the building block approach. Here we are with Move and Kinect and they have swapped roles. M$ has the big expensive all singing all dancing Kinect and Sony has the slow bleed product.

I think its like launching a new console.. All depends on the games

Uhm, Glen Larson, how is Move more expensive than Kinect? Move is £50 including camera. Kinect allows two players so Move x 2 = £100 (don't give me tracking 4 other players as playing the game). As M$ are so keen to tell us, do the Math. And before you accuse me of being a fanboy I've got both consoles, the 360 is a decent console but Kinect is too expensive and the games look weak.

23% said they would purchase kinect vs 64% saying the WOULD CONSIDER buying the move. clever writting

Glen Larson

Uhm, If you plan on playing with more than one player the Kinect is the less expensive of the two, I wonder if the people being polled were aware of this?

The rabid fanboy is at it again.

Based on what i've seen and know of video games (2 decades of playing), the Move will outsell the Kinect based on pricing alone and the fact that the people with wii's in their household or have enjoyed thi Wii will want to play the Move. In a casual gamers eyes the Move is Wii updated and gf/kids/wives will want to try it out and play with their siblings/dads/spouse.

So if the current xbox 360 guys are not casual market, why are current PS3 guys casual market? I thought xbox and PS had the same markets?

You proved all who said you are a Sony fan boy wasn't wrong.
it's called casual market,can you understand?guys who play just for fun and don't care for many things.
of course majority of current X360 owners will not buy Kinect because it designed for those new guys (casual market,remember?).
Groupola.com or anyone else if you want to make a survey about Kinect go and research in casuals or those that waiting to buy a console at the end of the year.
