"Worthless Gimmick"0.5 starson by cronolink
Pros: Uhh... I got nothing.
Cons: Terrible to use. Don't expect to ever be able to play any kind of normal game with this while sitting down. You have to re-calibrate constantly! It's like sony tried to rip off Nintendo and Microsoft at the same time while failing miserably at it.
Summary: It's like Sony tried to rip off Nintendo and Microsoft at the same time. Unfortunately they failed miserably. I have all three systems. I haven't used kinect yet so I can't compare it, but I have used the wii and the motion plus accessory quite a bit and they are great. Lets face it Nintendo started the motion controller back when everybody thought it would be a gimmick but they made it work and they made it work well. It isn't buggy, you don't have to stand 8 feet in front of the TV all the time (ok with some games you do but it's the game itself that requires that not the hardware) and you don't have to re-calibrate every time (or ever for that matter). Don't get me wrong it's not that I'm some super Nintendo fan (pun not intended), I actually spend more time on my Xbox 360. It just has the only good motion control system. My advice is to try the Sony Move before you buy it. Find a video store that rents it or a friend that has it. An in-store demo really doesn't give you the whole effect.
