they are so copying nintendo EVEN THOUGH THEY FUCKING HAD THE SAME TECH IN 2004, they are still copying nintendo.
My take on it, if it wasn't for nintendo sony wouldn't have released move, but MOVE is not a copy, since it was in development since will before the wii was even shown in public
I hate to sound like a dick but..
Did Sony ever bundle it with every console?
Fact is Nintendo took the risk and succeded now Sony and MS watch a piece of the motion control market. Both MS and Sony are copying Nintendo in there own ways.
Sure Natal is different, but its gonna compete with Wii mote.
The PS mote might be a complete copy but its better than the basic Wii mote which is a huge plus (No pun intended)
But again, Nintendo took the tech primarily from Sony's piggy bank. Did Nintendo come up with the creative idea for it? Did Nintendo fund a good portion of the groundwork for the project? In most cases, no they didn't. So while MS / Sony are trying to replicate the Wii's success or steal some of it's thunder, even Nintendo is guilty of copying in this regard.
The Idea of motion controls have been around since the 1980's.
It's not just the idea for it. It's the idea for interface, idea for everything revolving around it. Sony did not come up with all of these either. Neither did Nintendo. That's the whole point.
On a simplistic sense, Sony came up with the technology for the Wand first which Nintendo copied. Nintendo came up with the risky idea of trying it as a main form of control for their system which Sony is now copying by providing an option to use motion controls.
People making a big issue out of this are Nintendo fanboys or people trying to create drama/issues where there is none. This type of thing happens constantly in this industry.
Did anyone else bundle it succesfully like Nintendo has done?
No one has been more succesfull than Nintendo with the Wii.
If the Wii had never launched then PS mote nor Natal would be coming out.
I am in full agreement due to the fact the EYETOY was not lighting up the ps2 gamer's when it was released for the PS2.
The developer for the EYETOY even stated the PSWand on the PS2 would have had problem's performing some function's due to the PS2's limitation's with it's hardware the same with the first xbox and the Game cube, it's no wonder why these machine's are more robust to handle the requirement's needed for certain function's that motion control's would need even though the Wii being the lowest spec's out of these new machine's.
it's still way more advanced in it's hardware than the game cube. the Game cube does not hold a candle to the hardware that's in the Wii. not saying the Game cube was not a great machine, because it is. i own 2 of them.. .
the succesfull release and sales of the Wii just established Motion control's as a very Viable control scheme that both Sony an Microsoft did not think the cosumer's would be ready to support like they already do with game control pad's.
If anything Nintendo Moved the entire industry forward.
though that does not mean that the entire industry copied Nintendo, it just mean's some did not see the motion control's as a main control scheme for game console's even if there were R&D LAB'S IN OTHER COMPANIES OUT SIDE OF Nintendo that felt the same way as Nintendo have about Motion control's.
