"It basically does what the Wii does, but better."

No. It promises to do it better. Wait until these actually come out. If the developers just do flashy waggle games, this will not be better (although I expect reviewers to hypocritically ignore their waggle criticisms even if the control is identical). If some developers make games using full motion that Motion+ has yet to do, that will be a better thing.

But wait. Don't assume the promises here actually make the product better.

From what Sony showed from 1st party, very little involved waggle.

The street fighting game had much more impressive motion gaming than anything i've seen on Wii.

And i fail to see how the red part of your post is anything other than your opinion. Move has already proven it is massively accurate, and it also uses a camera. I don't see how it will automatically be a better thing.

I meant if the games made for this are what we hoped with the Wii.

But that is up to the designers, not the tech. Being more accurate will not make the game better if the developers can't make fun motion control.

A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

I am a happy multiplatform owner, and I can tell you that the Wii is an amazing secondary console.

I use it almost as much as my PS3 and 360, but one simply cannot beat the Nintendo franchises.

While the console may not be to my tastes, or to yours (I am one of those who wish it was a super powered tech box but can respect Nintendo for their much needed direction) I will certinaly admit that the games that have effort in them have more than fine graphics.

So that should not be an issue.

The system is more different than the PS3 is, and the motion control while similar, is different enough that it will offer a varying experience.

I will say this: The Wii is the market leader so you can always expect good games to come out for it, even if 3rd party devs dont put effort.

For me personally, I was not just buying a Wii; I was getting a Gamecube, N64, SNES, NES, Genesis, Master System, TGFX16, Neo Geo, all in one.

I can honestly say I did not go wrong, and I enjoy all my systems equally.

If you have the means, get both. But the Wii is unique in the sense that no one can duplicate that "Nintendo" feeling.

Its that same magical feeling Disney has...they just "get" it.

Why would the PS Move change your mind at all? Doesn't seem sensible to me. It isn't going to get all the games the Wii has. In fact, it is unlikely to get any of the games already released. As such if you want a Wii for the games then there is as much a reason as ever to get it. Am I missing something here?

It's easy to talk about how awesome your upcoming games are.

"It's easy to talk about how awesome your upcoming games are."

This. If you're being swayed by hype, you really need to wait and see if it comes to fruition.

I'd say hold off on the Wii till at least E3, because with Sony and Microsoft both introducing motion control hardware to their systems this year, I guarantee you that the Wii's price will drop yet again sometime this summer or fall, probably to $149 or maybe even less.

Doubt any ofthe move titles will match Zelda Wii.

NONE will match Zelda Wii ever. Did you see the PS Move?

1) stupid name

2) DID YOU SEE THE GAMES ON IT! so much boring, Wii had Wii sports and Twilight Princess for launch.


sorry, if you don't want to purchase a Wii, don't buy it. But what the PS Move demonstrates today is lame and totally innacurate. Hope they fix it because it's going to be the biggest mistake of the generation.

The hypocracy on this site makes you all look like fools, but you knew that already.

Did anyone find out if it can point at the screen? Like the wiimote can point, for fps games?

“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
