I always figured that the Nav was a copy of the Wii's Nunchunk and thus it had gyroscopes in there somewhere.
Here is my take on it.
The Wii – My kids love, and it is a fun party system that people can just pick up and play without much instruction.
360 Kinect – I dont know a whole lot about this one since I dont own a Xbox. But from the trailors I have seen it seems more of a one player control system. What happens if you have a bunch of people in the room, wont it pick up on them and screw up the controls? Can you play two player Coops on one systems with this?
PS3 Move – I am excited for this. HD Bluray motion gaming. Seriously awesome. You can play with multiple players on each game since the system tracks each contoller 1:1. It launches tonight and look at the quality of games already out, the library of upcoming, and the games that have had patches come out to adapt to it. I am looking foward to replaying RE5 GE as soon as I unpack it all. I think Sony has taken the lead on bringing gaming to the next level with the Move.
I'm gonna end up with all three. My wife really likes the Kinect, Im more for the move but intrested in Kinect. So it will be nice to tell between them when all three are out.
yea i agree i will also purchase playstation move and kinect, i have the wii remotes and their just ok nothing to special. I feel like the game selection for the wii is childish.
i've played a wii. and i like it. there's problems there, of course, but they're not bad enough for me to swear off the wii.
i now have a move. the demos i have played with it respond well, it's comfortable to hold, and it's quite accurate. time crisis comes out next month, and i'm excited.
i want to like kinect. i really do. but it's just a fancy eye toy. i've dealt with motion capture in my college before. we have a 32 camera setup, and at most we capture 4 people using the light suits. there's just no way kinect will capture motion the same way. how will it distinguish multiple people? what if someone i'm playing with decides to take a break? will i have to restart the game to accept the loss of that person, or if another person hops in? how will i shoot? hell, how will it know that i'm the one it wants, and not someone wandering around in the background?
I personally think Patcher was right, and nintendo really should have released the Wii HD by now. NPD is proof, and in Japan Wii seems to be doing pretty 'meh' too.
Sony is playing it slightly safe. I really do hope Sony Dev's learn from Nintendo Dev's on how to use the technology properly so we don't have controls like Red Steel 1 implemented in Killzone 3 or so. Probably the most technically advanced piece of hardware out there but still needs to shine with exceptional games.
Kinect, is a lot like a re-branding of the eyetoy for the ps2. Still feel like it is pretty bad and just being pushed. Know people in Microsoft who think its good, but it isnt as good as Microsoft makes it out to be.
I'm a bit skeptical about how Kinect will work as well. I've seen all the tech demos and presentations, but I still don't completely believe it will work that perfectly. Have you guys seen the one with the vitual kid who reads your emotions? How will that work when there are multiple people in the room? And what if two people are attempting to play a racing game with other people doing things behind them? It took MIT forever to build that robot that recognizes and responds to facial expressions. And like anarchy said, it takes alot of cameras and equipment to properly track movement like that. I don't see how an xbox with 1 camera can do all of that. I would have to agree with bilzac; I think it will end up as an improved Eye-Toy.
I'm ambivalent when it comes to motion controllers, however, I do think PS-Move has potential. I might buy it when black friday / holiday season comes around if I see a good deal. PS-Move has potential, but I have low hopes for Kinect.
None of them. I'm a lazy gamer, and like the idea of a controller in my hand as I sit in my chair, not standing. FTW.
I'll wait until next year to purchase Move since the current Sports Champions bundle doesnt appeal to me since I already own Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort. That and I can get two games instead of the Move Bundle and that at the moment is the best value for me. Once Sorcery and PS Move Heroes are out…
