Kinect for Xbox 360 (formerly known as Project Natal)


Recommended Posts

150 $ wtf?!?!?! I actually prefer playstation move, and its cheaper! I only think gaming with no remote can go to a certain extent but the sony sorcery and socom 4 stuff for PS Move looks epic
Preferred control scheme aside (Kinect/Move/Wii), at least do your math correctly.

 

Kinect

Cost per unit: $150

Quantity required: 1

Total Cost: $150

 

PlayStation Move

Cost (Move/PSEye combo): $100

Sub-controller (optional, can use SIXAXIS/DS3): $30

Extra Move Controller (1-3): $50-$150

Extra Sub-Constroller (1-3): $30-$90

Total Cost: Minimum $50 if you have a PSEye already, $100 if you don't

Maximum $370 (4 sets of controllers + Eye)

 

I would say at bare minimum, assuming you don't have a PSEye, you're looking at $130 to play most games effectively with the PS Move. While I also prefer Move to Kinect, I'm not fool enough to use price as an argument.

Games are the factor for me when it comes with device to invest in. Kinect isn't showing me much that I want... PlayStation Move on the other hand being a straight Wii ripoff has pretty much the exact same applications meaning that it can also be used more easily with traditional based games.

 

If I see certain games coming out with PS Move functionality I may get those games for PS3... hell, it may convince me to buy certain multi-platform games for the PS3 instead of 360.

If a game comes out that I want to play then I could purchase any of them, right now none of them have showed me anything worth my time or money.

Ok, and what exactly is wrong with that? With the Wii, Nintendo has opened up a whole new gaming audience, Microsoft and Sony would be pretty stupid not to try and tap into that new market.

It's a bit too pricey imo, I probably won't pay for it if they market it at the rumored $150.00 price. Not enough to attract me to drop that kind of cash when I'd much rather put it toward a purchase of the slim 360.
