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.

Move Is “Legitimately” Hard To Find, Says Sony

by Ernice Gilbert on November 30th, 2010, under News, Sony

Michael Pachter said yesterday that Microsoft and to a further extent Sony, were giving the impression that their motion control devices were sold out and hard to find at retail just to create positive momentum for the products. And while the latest Kinect numbers released yesterday by Microsoft puts all Pachter’s chatter to rest, Sony’s yet to release any, so the giant did what any would: go on the defensive by claiming the PS Move is “legitimately” hard to find.

Is that so?

by Ernice Gilbert on October 26th, 2010, under Hot, Microsoft, News

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.

UPDATE: The 1 million includes Latin America and they were sold to retail (not to consumers).

It’s been out for just about a month, and for a market’s that many thought was already saturated with Nintendo’s motion gaming console, Wii, Sony’s PS Move is proving to be extremely popular in Europe and North America. So much so that the company might have to “accelerate production”.

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.

There were also many titles specifically designed to take full advantage of the peripheral, one of the most outstanding being a game that brings together in one experience Ratchet & Clank, Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper franchises. Back then it was called Heroes On The Move, that was back then.

Move Developer Stresses The Importance Of Buttons, Calls Kinect Into Question
