Well, the main difference is that ALL Wii consoles come with a Wiimote, so there\'s like 100 million Wiimotes out there right now (I own two WM). Arc and Natal have to be bought by consumers and we all know that when that is the case, it\'s very hard for an attach-rate of more than 20% on best cases.
I\'ve had a Wii since launch and there are several games that use motion controls and the Wiimote pointer for a better gaming experience. Just saying \"motion controls are badz bekse of teh cazuals and their wiiwiis\" is just plain stupid. My main interest for Arc right now is playing RE5 with the RE4:Wii Edition controls. Take that as you will.
I think Sony and MS are testing the waters for their next systems. Get something out that doesn\'t cost a fortune that can be a base to grow off of. I am most excited for Natal because if it works like they say it will be very unique. I liked what I saw with the Arc and this could really change current gaming if implemented properly.
Wii is great for mindless fun. Any idiot can play which makes it enjoyable for 3 to 100 yr olds. That is the problem though. It is built for everyone and not so much hard core gaming. Sony and MS are going after both, but more the hard core. This could be a great year for gaming if both new motion systems add to hard core gaming.
Sony wins this I bet you because Natal is now getting awkward like the racing demo where you put foot forward and have an \"air\" wheel, though it\'s cool still not going to do well.
