That's why I'm asking for confirmation. These shop are reputable retailers and generally do get info from distributor ahead of time. They've discloved news before the publisher in the past as well so its certainly not without precedent. Furthermore, in this case its not just one site, its actually pretty wide spread.The reason I'm a bit pessimistic about these data is because the game screams motion control with big honkin horns so it could be natural for a few retailers to make a mistake and for everyone else to compound on that mistake by reading the mistaken retailers' data and treating it as fact.
I'm very interested in this game, it is essentially going to be the decider for me on either getting the move or the kinetic later in the year. Don't burn me for being a bit wishful :P
Fair enough, I just tweeted somone from Ubisoft hopefully they give me a response :D
Kinect price was in the retailers so you could be right, though Australia was bargaining the kinect price as soon as it was announced as it didnt want it above 200, which they succesfull did. It is 199 here. I dunno how it would work with a controller now that I have seen the Kinect video haha. It looks lots of fun.
HAHA join the green machines motion control :D
I have not been impressed so far by any game from either move or kinetic. I'm a bit old fashion and like my adventure game on a game-pad on my console and my fps / rts on my damn nice pc with a sexy keyboard / mouse setup. I never got into the wii, just didn't enjoy waving my hand around to play games and I'm a weak little bastard that get tired pretty fast.
Cost really isn't a issue for me, but I refuse to buy a system that has no game I'm interested in.
Child of Eden however... hot damn! The first time I saw this at E3 I was freaking drooling in eagerness, this look like an AWESOME game to play while drunk. I have a bottle of vodka already stored up for this shit and I cannot wait to try it out.
I was leaning towards kinect first, because no hand sounds the most trippy but early report indicated that there will be some lag when using kinetc (I think this is control lag and happens with all kinect games) and then my usual online shop of choice list this down as move compatible. I've been told move is the most accurate of the 3 motion controllers so for a while I was gonna get it for the move.
Then I got told that it wasn't move compatible at all (or at least not confirmed) and got a bit sad, but I reflected that since I was gonna primary play this game drunk or at least a bit tipsy, I really shouldn't give a fuck on the precision of the control so I was happy again.
Finally I found that the same info is also on several other website (move compatible) and became confuse again.
The not knowing is driving me bat shit insane so I've set my position once more to neutral and am waiting for confirmation of compatibility and reviews on the game's performance for kinect (and move if that news prove true).
