if Sony had motion tracking (move) in development since 2004 I need to see evidence from before the wii became a success.  Otherwise it's just lies from Sony.  The kinect is kin to the eyetoy but it's not a rip off of it.  Microsoft didn't say, "man that eyetoy is such a phenomenal success!  Let's make one too."  they didn't capitalize on Sony's hands free fad.  They took a dead idea and gave it life, which is not the same as stealing IMO.


Woah! Your comment is like... The definition of double standards.

i do have different standards for biting a successful idea and biting a failed idea.  Different standards for different situations, not groups. Sony made the first dual analog controller.  Everyone stole it.  Sony started the dvd/blueray media format in games.  Microsoft copied that.    These are all successful ideas.

 

Sony created remote play with the psp, for use with ps1 games and lair.  Sony later supported remote play with vita, for use with 2-3 HD remasters.  Remote play on ps3 is a failed implementation of a great concept.  Therefore I don't give sony credit for Wii U's perfect implementation of this concept.


If the Eyetoy was a failure Sony wouldn't have invested into three iterations of it. Think first.

Does it really matters? Everytime I see this Kaz Hirai smiling and waving at the media but we all know Sony is still bleeding billions of dollars since the PS3 and the end is still far away because of the Vita and PS4. They are too proud to admit anything.....



Sony copies Nintendo all the freaking time, but I don't fault them for what you mentioned. Personally I never understood that button to begin with. It was always just a useless button which almost nothing ever made use of except in the most primitive and old of games.

Even then I was always more confused when it was used than when it wasn't used. Because I go through so many games without ever touching that button I just naturally think it's not gonna be used; thus, when I truly need to use the select button, I just end up getting lost for awhile or try making due without it.

That statement doesn't match the situation even in an ironic sense.

Well I can't wait for Nintendo to make a VR machine and Sony to have motion controls and say they won't have VR because it's just a gimmick, and talk about how Nintendo is just a toy. :O



Nintendo Wii by generations...

1. Wii

2. Wii U

3. Wii O U

Predictions made by gamers concerning the current Nintendo line up of games.

Pikmen 3= Little Bump to nothing. (Got Little Bump)

Wind Waker HD= Won't sell anything (The explosion happened here and at one time 4 Wii U games was in the Amazon top 100)

Super Mario 3D World= Won't help at all looks cheap. (Currently the most sought after Wii U game and continuing the Wii U increase.)

Its called the Occulus Rift. As for Nintendo they've always been considered a toy company.



What is the point of this thread??? It's not like Nintendo never copied any ideas is it????? All companies copy off each other. It just shows how desperate some Nintendo fans are right now!
