    Welcome to the games industry.
    You must be new.

    Copying ideas is not anything new its been going on since the dawn of time. Sony do it, Sega did it and even Nintendo do it

    You know the Miis from the Wii? Copy of Avatars from Xbox360. Also, the 720 is another rumor.

    And the PS3 was better? At least Microsoft was smart enough to modify the Eye toy from PS2, rather than the PS3 copying what the Wii does.

    Regardless of borderline copyright infringement and the kinect being good or bad,

    Sony and Microsoft are ****ed either way, from a monetary stand point. No, they aren't going out of business, but Nintendo's announced their next console when the other two companies are still fiddling with their own motion-based devices. Too little, too late... If they manage to break a worthwhile profit off of these gimmicks, I'll be amazed. Probably be because of some subliminal marketting trick, or somethin'...
