If you think the PlayStation eye is the same as the eyetoy then you dont know what you're talking about. I was talking about the eyetoy. You know? The one that came out in 1998 and allowed people to play without controllers, had voice control, you could control the user interface with hand gestures an could recognize objects in 3D space? Yes, the EYETOY. I am talking about the best motion controller and the kinect is not it. It's easier to use obviously but that doesn't make it the best. We all have different taste and opinions but at the end of the day we'll see what all the kinect lovers say when they can't have fun in games because they got bored of themnpr when microsoft announces the new never-before-seen "kinect controller: for more precision and control".

Talk to me when that happens.

The more you talk the more of a Sony Fan boy you sound like. I don't know if you read the post but EYETOY was not one of the three we are talking about. It was last gen. I don't think Kinect is original. None of the three are. Nintendo had the power glove before the wii. I don't think anyone thinks the Power Glove is as good as the Wii. Nintendo started motion control for the most part not Sony. Even Sega had a none controler motion control before Sony had the EYETOY. It was terrible. You don't have to come up with something first to impove on it. The EYETOY was not that good. It didn't sell good at all. I had a PS2 and had no intrest in it. Most games just put your actually image on the screen while you played games. The Kinect is much inproved over the EYETOY just like the move is an improvement over the WII.

Even if they add some type of controller or wand how is that a bad thing. It would just make something good even that much better. It would still do what WII and move can't. Track your entire body. The reason it is important to do that is games like Dance Central. That game is very challenging by the way. It is the only game that does what it does and you can only play it on 360. You don't have to get a Kinect. I can see the value in all three systems. It's fan boys like you who can't. Why don't you just post things on Sony message boards with all your freinds.

I see the value in all 3 as well. I mentioned Eyetoy because All xbox fanboys say tht kinect is so "new" and microsoft did something "never before seen" which is false. If MS makes a controller (which they will) then that only proves my point: kinect has limits. It doesnt matter if it can track your full body; its useless, unless, as i said before, you wanna keep playing dancing games and catching balls. Full 3D tracking doesnt give you any advantages. Just think about it. Which motion controller can do more right now with precision? The wii did great things but not Microsoft. Both Nintendo and Sony passed on Kinect. Microsoft was the only one to take it. If that doesn't tell you something then I don't know what will.

Got my 6 year old daughter a Kinect, Kinect Sports, Dance Central, Kinectimals, for Christmas. We mostly play Kinect Sports together, and we have a blast. Suprisingly, I play it by myself sometimes as it is very fun and addictive. Bowling is excellent. Beach Volleyball and Table tennis are a lot of fun. Boxing sucks imo. Plus, it's getting my duff off the couch unlike Madden, NCAA FB, etc. I am very happy with my purchase. I had a hard time deciding which one to get, Move or Kinect, but at the end of the day, it was for my daughter, and not me so the Kinect had better kid games, and I thought it would be easier for her to play since she didn't have to learn how to use a controller (she hasn't played any other video games except those on the iphone).

I plan on buying a Move too for my PS3, but not until MLB the Show comes out and if it is implemented well even if I only end up using it for HR derby. I hope they have some mini games for the Move. I doubt I will use it for my franchise play.

davitpr, imo the Kinect is good for casual gaming at this point, like what I described in my previous post. It really can be a lot of fun. The Move will work better (at least at this point) for shooters, golf, baseball. Each have their strengths and weaknesses, it depends on what you are looking for. Most of us on OS will probably just stick to our normal controllers anyway for our traditional sports games Personally, I sometimes enjoy just vegging on the couch playing MLB the Show.
