I agree with what you wrote. They are trying to save a dying console. The wii had the motion playing in the bag, lets be honest, it was the first console with it to be mass marketed, and it was very successful. Most people have played or own a wii.

I purchased a 360 cause I was bored with the wii, and I wanted serious games (halo battlefield etc). Also, Kinect sounds awesome and I can't wait for it to be released, the way it isn't just about gameplay, but how you control the 360 console with words and motions - I think that is going to be a hit.

For example, when my friend first purchased a PS3 several years ago (he paid something like $900AUD) the only way he could argue that his purchase was a good one (better then spending his money on the 360), was the fact it came with blu-ray. Too bad he didn't have a HDTV... I reckon there is a good amount of awesome games on it, but it just didn't sell as many consoles as the 360 which sucks (for sony.) But the 360 was just so much cheaper then the PS3, so thats why it took off IMHO though

Too early to call it either way.

imo, the move doesn't really compete with the kinect. it's main competitor is the wii.

the PS3 combines stunning graphics(for a console) with much more usability. it's a console plus multimedia center, plus web browser... that's why you pay premium.
the xbox360 is a gaming console with limited multimedia usage.

the wii, is most of all a casual gaming console for everybody, that managed quite easily to broaden the market for from 0-35 to 0-99+.

sony wants to appeal to them, too. because that's where the money is bunkered.

microsoft wants to please the hardcore consolers and the casual one's, a diffcult task.

again imho, the kinect might actually fail, it's too costly... $150 for the system alone is quite steep (move is expensive as well at $100 for the "camera" and only one controller while the controllers cost $50 ) and you can't just take it with you as it needs calibration and stuff and it's not like the move, which has the controllers and the little "camera".
the technology behind it is quite compelling though, but still it has its flaws, mainly the lag, which cancels out more complex games and possibly limits it to party games after all, just like wii and move.

still it's too early to tell.

What Jack4L said.

It hasn't been released yet so you can't call it a failure yet. IMO, The Wii can already do most of what the Move can do with the Wii MotionPlus attachment.

Heh, abit confused right now since I was writing up a reply to how you originally worded your post, but just to clarify:

Are you implying that you think it has less chance to succeed because Nintendo has motion plus?

*Edit* btw, good catch there dfkt, I had a gut feeling about this topic being abit off- too generic and random. Almost like a console fanboi flame bait- Never even considered it to be a spam bot. Clever girl...

My buddy got his new PS3 Move combo for $430 with RE5 Gold Edition & all i got to say is wow, RE 5 is freaking fun with the Move controller & better aiming too. i will get the PS3 Move when the next PS3 get a hardware update to 45mm & 802.11n support.

No I was agreeing on what you said, to early to call it either way

No not implying that, just saying that it doesn't seem that new except for better graphics and the fact that it has camera tracking and the led orb thingy.

lol. Thought it was very generic - and opened a lot of discussion areas - Thought it might be Sony trying to see how successfully we thought there product would be . Probs right.
