Would You Sell Nintendo Wii For PS3 Move?

The Nintendo Wii was first launched back in 2006, and hasn’t had any competition when it comes to motion controllers. Now the PlayStation Move has hit PS3’s around the world is the time up for the Wii?

When it was first launched the Wii took the world by storm, it enabled families and friends to play games together. Game playing on the console became more of a social event than ever before. Wii Sports Resorts had families playing tennis and ten pin bowling in their living rooms like never before.

Not only were the games fun, it even gave people a workout. The console continued to sell a bucket load of units, but recently sales figures have started to stall. Surely now Nintendo will give the Wii a makeover?

Sony’s Move has only been available for a couple of days but is receiving some very good reviews. The technology used is far advanced to the Wii; its position can be tracked in three dimensions offering high precision and accuracy. The Wii is old so maybe it cannot be compared to the PS3’s Move, but would you now trade in or sell your Wii for the PlayStation Move?

Move, WE ALL KNOW IS A WII COPY, but "potential" control and "HD" games don't convince me, also, we know PS3 don't have very good games, yeah we have KillZone 2, MGS4, Haze, etc. But with this control what? Wii game copies? no thanks, i think this is a good idea for those who wants a "Challenge", for me, Move don't represent any challenge and many of you may think i never play it before, BUT i have it, and is really really bad, Sony for the price and the quality, 2/5, because i can't say is they worst idea,… Read more »

I just Think that move has a great potential, and sony is trying to make a whole renewal gaming experience of the PS3, adding support to old games. Is more accurate than the wiimote, is lighter, seems to have potential… when the eyetoy can register the lighted sphere. I tried Sports Champion in a sony market place, and the great accuracy wasn´t so… impressive, felt like when I played wii sports, wich means fun, but 4 years later. Surely is precise, but dosen´t change a lot to the fact of gaming, just an excuse to say that is superior to… Read more »

"Wii 2. Xbox 720" what a bunch of stupid idiotic names people give to "new" consoles.

Just grow up, please.

Yes because the ps3 doesn't have Mario, Link, Kirby and DK.

I got the Move launch day. Worth every penny. I even had my 76 year old dad playing ping pong and enjoying it. People that say the Move is only a rip off of the Wii I guess also believe that a Porsche is also just a rip off of a 1971 Ford Pinto. Sure they both have doors, an engine, gas tank, four wheels, steering wheel, and seats…but they aren't the same. Don't knock it 'til you try it.

wii 2 will indeed blow the ps3 out of the water. Since Nintendo actually comes up with new stuff, sony doesn't know what it is yet. Nintendo came with motion control and it took Sony what… 4 years to catch up. Same will happen with Nintendo's next move. It's already happening with me playing Wii games and 3DS games soon… no time for lousy PS3.

If I had a Wii I would not sell it for a controller on the PS3 (because this would mean I have both systems). I would keep it but I would not hesitate to get the Move, I would probably not invest much more in the Wii but never hurts to have more than one console. The Wii2 is not coming out anytime soon, it would be pointless for Nintendo to put out a new console that is only going to be on par with the PS3 + Move. If the Wii2 is HD graphics with Blu-ray discs, and a… Read more »

After we got our PS3 Slim we also thought of getting a Wii & its been a year now. But as a nice dad I can't let myself & my little ones go back to ole standard definition, right? That will be an insult to our new 120Hz 46" HDTV! So I waited a year for the PS Move and guess what it was WORTH THE WAIT!? We got the Sports Champion Bundle plus one More Move controller & now the Wife can't put Sports Champion Archery down! What have I done!? Hah hah hah I made the no-gamer Wife… Read more »

I Sold My Wii a long time ago in favour of the PS3, Got Move Day one and its far superior to the Wiimotes.
If I still had the Wii I would have traded it in to get more games for the kids.

@GET THE DRIFT, you do realise that the majority of Nintendo's Wii releases are Sequels or Spin-Off's don't you? Not to take anything away from Nintendo, they make some of my favourite games of all time, Metroid and Zelda being some of them, but i think you post is a bit hypocritical

Nintendo for life. Only Jesus, my whole family plus extended and work come before Nintendo.

it's not just the controller but the wii fit board adds so much to skiing games.. the wii games are all about getting up and moving around..the PS3 can still be played sat down..

So whilst the controller may have 'moved' on..the games will never match the playability of the wii..I know I have both for very different reasons.

Can't believe how great the Move is! Sold the Wii for more controllers too! Might invest in some navigation controllers as well but we'll have to see. I'm so excited!

I tried Move out in GameStation today. They must have had a dodgy controller there as it was much less responsive than when I first tried out Wii Sports back in 2006 – the pointer didn't seem to be able to keep up with movement and quite a few swings didn't register.

After that experience I think I'll pass.
