E3 2010 has gotten off to a great start with Microsoft renaming its Xbox 360 motion-sensing device Kinect — formally Project Natal. We were shown a brief glimpse of this latest gaming device last year, which is aimed at the Nintendo Wii — we have to wonder if you would consider leaving Nintendo for Microsoft?
Alan Ng has covered so many aspects of Kinect, but we are certain that he will offer a greater insight once Microsoft begins their keynote today. The company will need much more than a huge Cirque De Soleil performance like it did at Kinect’s launch if it hopes to derail the Wii.
OK, so lets look at the two; we have the Xbox 360 motion-sensing device that is aimed at providing fun for gamers, as does the Wii — but where the two will differ is in the quality of the graphics and titles available.
Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox 360 will have superior graphics compared to that of the Nintendo Wii, but the former will lose out to the latter because of the huge amount of titles that it has available.
You will not have long to choose between the two — with a release date thought to be in November, which we discussed in a recent post.
Would you leave Nintendo for Microsoft?
