    Miyamoto: WM Plus > Natal > Sony's prototype

    http://kotaku.com/5281311/miyamoto-l...ntrol-projects

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8080698.stm

    I guess Nintendo has played around w/ Natal and Sony's prototype before, since they've been messing around motion control for the 5-6 years now, but Nintendo decided to go w/ WiiMotion Plus instead.

    Nintendo is the undisputed market leader in motion controls and in the casual gaming market segment. Moreover they have a nearly 5-6 year technology lead on a market with absolutely no competition. When Sony and Microsoft will finally get there, Nintendo will simply move to the next big thing, so no danger there. I do hope that both MS and Sony makes their motion control accurate, cheap, and gain developers support or it's not worth for consumers to support it at all. I wouldn't throw $200+ on Sony or MS add-ons until I see a $h!t load of hardcore games are out for them. How long will those games take to make or are they going to be even made at all? Hopefully by that time, I still play video games.

    IMO, it's Sony in first (since it's only a prototype, but it looks better than the Wii already) WMP in second, and Natal far into third place.

    You're dreaming, kid.

    Sony's prototype is not only better than Wii Motion Plus, but Sony will actually put theirs to use. Each and every one of you knows that Nintendo isn't going to (/can't) put Wii Motion Plus to work beyond Wii Sports 2 (and 3 and 4 and 5). The best you'll get is Zelda, which would be awesome, but pail in comparison to Sony applying their prototype to every first and third person shooter, adventure and other genre that they own the rights to.

    Sony's prototype probably won't come out until the next generation anyway. Then we'll see how well they can implement it into their games.

    I'm almost certain that they announced at E3 that it would be available Spring of 2010.

    If that's the case, Nintendo isn't ahead "5-6 years," as you say, but 5-6 months.

    Sony's prototype is not only a replica of Wii Motion Plus, but Nintendo will actually put theirs to use. Each and every one of you knows that Nintendo is going to put Wii Motion Plus to work beyond Wii Sports 2 (Zelda, No
    More Heroes 2, Red Steel 2, Gladiator A.D., The Grinder). The best you'll get is Zelda, which would be awesome!!
    In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.

    As it stands today:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million

    Wii Fit: 35 Million

    Nintendo has been utilizing the Wiimote w/ all their franchises (Mario Kart, Galaxy, Metroid, Pikmin, etc.) This means that motion control is the standard for the Wii. Will Sony make it theirs? Should it make it theirs? They have no idea. If they make it theirs, then it would alienate motion control haters which are about half of PS3 owners. If they don't make it theirs, then developers might not make games for it since it's not the standard. They don't even have a name for their motion control project yet or a final design. No price, projected release date, and no games. This thing could be for the PS4. Don't get me wrong. I have a PS3. I wish PS3 good luck w/ their motion control so I can ditch the Wii but you and I know that it's going to be tough to beat Nintendo in that department since they have the majority of the motion control fans and developers (EA: Tiger, Grand Slam...Ubisoft: Red Steel 2....Sega: Virtual Tennis) behind it already.

    We obviously have different ideas of what "putting to use," means. If you think Nintendo has done a good job of implementing the Wii Remote over the past few years, then yes, by your standards, Nintendo will use it more.

    But just to clarify, Red Steel 2 and Wii Sports 3 =/= MAG and Assassin's Creed 3.

    EDIT: And lol at counting a Pikmin remake as something that Nintendo has been using the wii remote with in all their franchises. That's because that's the only thing they changed in that game.

    Pikmin 3 is in development according to Miyamoto. Do you think it'll be controlled w/ analog sticks? And why are you comparing Red Steel 2 and Wii Sports 3 to MAG and Assassin's Creed?
