I haven't really had a chance to try either motion controller yet; but my step brother got kinect today. i'll check it out and respond here with what I think.
I tryed Kinect at Frys Electronics and was not impressed. The distance required for accurate movement is not going to sit well with college dorms or those who game in thier rooms. My son refused to even try it (13). He felt it was for kids. the concept sounds good on paper but I need something in my hands. The one title made by the guy who did rez looks fun but it is coming to ps3 with move so other then that kinect fails for me.
Then theres this coming for the pc-[China Hi-Tech] Chinese Firms Demo Motion Controller
The sensor unit in operation. Both ends of the unit are emitting light though it cannot be seen by the naked eye. The light is created by infrared LEDs. There is an STB under the sensor unit.
As a known hater of all things Motion-based (yet sadly owns all of them)...
I've got to say that the Kinect is EASILY the best option of the bunch....as far as possibilities go. It's just a shame that there's only one title currently out that showcases it's goodness (Dance Central). Not that it's a Dance game (I'm FAR from a dancer), but for the simple fact that it's EASILY the most responsive title to be had.
Better then the Wii strictly in the motion category (Wii ultimately wins thanx to it's implementation of a standard control scheme), better then Sony's Move from the sense that Move is something that's been done before (albeit a better version).
Myk you fanboy :P just kidding lol. I really have no interest in any motion controlling device whatsoever.
My real problem with Kinect is after playing it, I realized there were people behind me snickering/pointing/laughing. A buddy of mine brought it into work and we played it in the tech break room. After watching for a bit, I realized how goofy it makes a grown ass man look. When we play Wii in the break room, we never get those responses.
lol my buddy is a big time MS fanboy but we get along. Only dude I know that owns 360, Kinect and Windows Mobile 7 lol. but he is a cool cat.
