Kinect only supports two players, Move supports two-ish

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Kinect only supports two players, Move supports two-ish

And I've always wondered why on earth did Sony had the odd 7 bluetooths?!? It just doesn't make sense!!! 8 bluetooth would have been great, it would of been the king of sports on any current console! Basically not only will it benefit sports games but 4 players Move multiplayers games too!!

IMO, the biggest Sony mistakes of this gen!!



Around the Network

1. It is marketed as a three player game and the average consumer won't know the limitation?! The average consumer won't be sold by the internet at all, they will be sold because they played it at someone's house. The limitations will be apparent.

2. As a Wii owner this is nowhere near as bad a problem as the arbitrary limitation of one Balance Board. It has still been pretty successful.

I believe it's part of the bluetooth standard that a maxium of seven bluetooth devices can be supported at any one time.

4 player motion gaming?  never done it on the Wii.... ever. 

I doubt I could in my gaming room (space).... and I doubt I'd want the brusies from elbows smashing into my ribs and face.

2 is enough for me, so Sony and MS are just fine.


The ps3 supports 4 move controllers

Wii Fit has been quite successful, yes.  The balance board itself, however, is barely supported by any other applications.  A few games support it as a secondary, optional feature (Mario & Sonic, Punch Out), but no games outside of Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus fully require the peripheral.

I've had friends over for Mario Kart fairly often.  It and Mario Party 8 are especially popular with my sister's kids.

Off the top of my head you can play 4 player in Wii Sports Tennis and in Mario Kart. Those are "motion games".

I'm pretty sure there are more..

Actually it's eight devices that are supported at any one time. It comes down to seven controllers because the PS3 itself is a part of that too.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
