Sony’s Tired Of Microsoft’s Kinect Advertising Blitz
Turn on your TV, then allow about 2 minutes on most stations and I assure you there’ll be a Kinect ad on its display. Indeed, Microsoft’s set aside half a billion dollars to push its motion control device, and Sony’s tired of it.

Kinect Is “Fundamentally Different” From PS Move Says MS
Microsoft Game Studios VP Phil Spencer’s been on the talking trail lately, making the case for why people should purchase Kinect, and the revolution it brings to gaming.
He owns a PS Move, admittedly, but for him, Sony’s effort is not as immersive as Kinect, and does not offer the type of diversity Microsoft’s motion control device brings to the table.
For him, Kinect is “fundamentally different” from the PlayStation Move.

Heroes On The Move Renamed, “PlayStation” Included In New Title
At this year’s E3, although Sony had many games showing off at its presser, the PlayStation Move was the giant’s main focus. Many games were shown using the motion controller, including top PS brands like GT5 and Killzone 3 amongst others.
