    Doesn't make it any less of a plagiarism fail.

    How much did that department get paid to come up with the name "Move"? I could've said that for free. Although, for them to come up with "Move" I guess it would've taken quite a bit of brainpower on their part.

    I think move will be quite different to natal since natal is mostly standing up... but i think with move you can sit down... remember when we all thought to play wii we needed to stand up? well we don't always. but with natal you usally do....

    so kinda different

    Natal is better than the Move.

    The Move is just a shameless copy of the Wiimote+MotionPlus. The accuracy brings no added benefit over the Wii because if you add the MotionPlus to the WiiMote it becomes just as accurate. Natal does something new using your entire body as a controller. What interests me the most about Natal is that you can use any object as a tool to play the game. You can make a cardboard gun and use it as a AK-47 in a FPS.

    So?

    The next big thing is 3D. Soon, this won't even matter.

    You can grab a Wii Wheel for a racing game!

    ...


    or can you?

    Tell me one thing if Natal is better...how would you accelerate/brake? How would you fire your onboard missiles?
    We still need buttons. Technology is not advanced enough to leave them behind. If anything saved the Wii, it was the buttons on the Wiimote.

    The camera can see where you apply pressure (according to some site). You can draw a circle on a cardboard gun and apply pressure when you want to shoot. Microsoft could sell a 'gun' with buttons . Just because Natal is focused on full body control, that doesn't mean that they can't add buttons to certain peripherals.

    Buttons on the Wiimote were a given. The Wiimote was the main controller so it had to have buttons for certain games. The 360 already has a main controller. Natal is just a secondary control.

    Thanks for the heads up. If it's indeed true that the camera can detect our pressure input...that's some fearsome tech they've got going on. That would change my opinion of Natal completely. Because as of now....I feel it's the Eyetoy all over again. (Especially with the bad lag...Uncanny Valley-style.)

    sony running their mouth yet again this time to m$ they act like they came up with the controller in the 1st place but it's Definitely a shameless ripoff. Especially considering their hypocrisy, how they attacked Nintendo over motion controls for years now. Motionplus does the same thing too, even 1:1 movement in a 3D space. Thing is that i don't think they've demoed ANY games that use this technology, it's just wasted potential that has already been done in REAL games by now. Go figure... It also still looks like a dildo! [​IMG]

    People always forget this for some reason. People make it seem like with Natal you can't be holding anything. Who's to say I can't play an FPS with my 360 controller and use Natal for certain motions etc. I'd love to be able to (if I wanted) play an FPS with my 360 controller but throw a grenade with a throwing motion ect. Stuff like that. I think if they can combine Natal with the 360 remote and not just rely on motion then it will be much better than Move.

    Sony just needs to shut the f*** up already. They're becoming a joke.

    In my view, Sony has degenerated to that stupid little brat who is always running up to people and either kicking them, punching them, making faces, saying stupid shit, or whatever. Not at all threatening, but extremely childish and stupid looking. Gives a very bad impression of their company. Very unprofessional manner of running your business too. Wonder what happened there, all they can do lately is rip off other companies and try to spread bullshit about how much "better" it is. That is not for them to decide for one, it's for the consumers to decide.

    It's like watching a little two year old boy throw a tantrum because he didn't get enough attention. I've babysat preschool children as a young teen and i know how children like that can act. Besides the big words Sony uses to try to look sophisticated, there's no difference between Sony lately and that little trouble-making preschool kid who throws random fits of jealousy and walks up to people to hit them for no reason. Quite a funny way to run a business... Not unheard of businesses to do that, but it never reflects well on them.

    But I disagree.
    Wii does it better than both of them.

    as omgpwn said in the last post but i should say that sony fine tuned the idea and they accept that they copied it... sometimes leave aside "copying" issues bcz it still requires intelligence and a well-paid cast to produce such a thing
    besides i bet many have requested sony to do something like this or they would have in the future... if wii and natal are there, why dont u guys do something... something like tht
