How Good is Sony’s PS3 Move Against Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Kinect?

By Jay Shah | Games

It was looking as if Nintendo Wii would take the cake in the motion-controlled gaming market, but now Sony is planning to catch up and get its own share. Very soon you will have the PS3 Move, a collection of devices which create motion controls more accurate than what you get on the Nintendo Wii right now.

The games specifically designed for the Move offer better high-definition graphics and frame rates than the Wii. But let’s not forget that the Move has to be compared to the Microsoft Kinect too, to be judged just how good it is.

Though the Kinect motion controller is an attempt by Microsoft to bring motion-gaming to the Xbox, it is quite different from the Wii. Here a camera placed under your TV allows you to interact with the game and you become the controller!

But despite that it is Sony’s PS3 Move controller which looks a better proposition overall, at least for end users.

First of it’s the price of the Sony’s Move which will attract you. In the bundle you get a PlayStation Eye, a Move controller and a bonus game for $100! If you have already got the PlayStation eye camera, you have to spend even lesser amount of money.

Given that Nintendo Wii has ubiquitous appeal and offers motion gaming at a ridiculous $200, other companies are going to have a hard time matching that level of economy. But the Move seems better equipped than the Kinect which costs $150 and $300 with the Xbox console. In this financial climate, people may go for the cheaper option, as has been proved time and again.

Moreover, Sony Move console has a wide variety of games on offer, as compared to the Microsoft Kinect. You can play games such as SOCOM 4, Resident Evil 5, Heavy Rain and many more exciting titles. While Microsoft may yet be working on a vast array of game titles, the ones available right now are pretty basic and will not appeal to the real gamer.

So, if you want more excitement that Zumba Fitness or petting a few animals in on a private island via the Kinect, Sony’s Move should be your weapon of choice and with good reason too.

Wii is for kids January 27, 2011

Mate you’re on another planet, you must be a Wii fan boy. PS3 Move is on another level.

NO lag, no glitches, button layout is fine. The games are far more playable than the Wii. Where do fan boys like you get their information from, and don’t say research or Google.

PS3 Move is amazing, it’s so accurate and with its playable games how can you not like it. You probably can’t afford one.

Wii is not superior, how can it be if PS3 Move is better? (FACT) do the math.

    I have had the wii for a long time. I haven’t saw any glitches with it at all. The ps3 is just making a spinoff fail off the wii. It really isn’t an more accurate then the wii.

The wii is most accurate with Wii MotionPlus, or WiiMote Plus = 50.00. Kinect is great, PS Move…what the heck is the rubber ball for, and don’t tell me they track the remote with that. Kinect, Wii = GREAT! PS Move = epic fail.

First off, I’ve been playing with the Move and Sports Champions on the PS3 for the past few months. I have a Wii as well, which I’ve had for the past 2 1/2 years. The Wii is NOT accurate, nor precise on it’s movements. Tell me, how can a person sitting down and flick their wrist to bowl a strike in real life? Or how can a kid challenge me in a game of fencing on Wii Sports Resort and just madly wave their wrist left and right and win every time? Where’s the skill? … The Move has the Eyetoy camera which tracks the glowing ball on the Move controller. You MUST perform full movements/motions and perform them with the appropriate amount of force for whatever you’re doing… swinging a sword, swatting a ping pong ball, or throwing a bocce ball. The precision is there. I do still like my Wii, but only for titles like Mario (at times) and Zelda… mainly the 1st party Nintendo titles I can only get on Wii. But really, my Wii hasn’t even been turned on in over 6 months. My PS3 has been on for over 2 hours everyday for the past 2 months!

Playstation MOVE = Best, most accurate motion control, lots of titles, and a lot of MOVE required games are 3D compatible!

Microsoft Kinect = Different breed entirely… only good with games designed specifically for it, and I’m really not seeing much versatility with it yet. Fighters Unleashed is an atrocity. Moves aren’t recognized very often, a lesson in frustration to be sure!

Wii = Fun for little kids, not much skill required due to the fact that the motion control ‘guesses’ a lot, great 1st party Nintendo titles, but those don’t really require much in the way of ‘motion control’ so it works out. Not HD 🙁

People talking about move price are always doing it wrong and comparing it to wii’s remote+nunchuck..

100$ is the price of web-cam + move controller and a game but WITHOUT move’s other controller (the one in the left hand in above picture) that’s an extra 40$!
Other move’s controllers will be 50$+40$ each.. Quite pricey!

At least kinect already allows 4 players and wii full controler is about 50/60$… you do the math!

Move is a money sucker in my opinion.

guys its been proven in the games that wii is more accurate, precision in ball tracking is rubbish when your not accurate. My local gamestop had to take the move off the demo pod because it glitched and lagged so bad. they always have the motion plus demos on …..why….cos nintendo were spot on with ir(x2) infra red-immidiate responce. sure you can stand in a room and be precision tracked to perfection. however with me i want accurate movements, swings, and actions when playing. as well as a better controller to hold while playing, the reviews for a lot of games on move when compared to wii state 1. bad botton layout, 2. lag, 3. glitching, 4. restricted options. and thats when comparing resort to champions, resi 4 to 5, and lotr:aragorns quest sword movements accuracy to swing precision. wii won them all…fact. so i have traded my ps3 a console that had 4 years to rival and still make a mess of it says only one thing to me. they dont know what they want and cheap cash in on an already superior product. wii has won and will continue to do so.

360 owners loved to complain how expensive the ps3 was. They enjoyed countless hours saying so on the internet for a few years. So…it’s not ok the ps3 was expensive…but it is ok Kinect is expensive? I also believe Kratos is Santa’s alter ego.

With the Move, you only buy what you need. That’s what 360 owners bragged about with the 360. “I don’t need wifi and Microsoft doesn’t make me pay for it”. You already have a ps3 eyetoy? Then all you need is the $50 Move. You don’t need a sub controller for these games? Then don’t buy one. You can use the regular controller as a sub controller anyway. So now it’s Sony giving the customer the choice and it’s Microsoft forcing you to lay down a chunk of cash all at once. Small world.

Casual gamer spending $200 on a Wii. That looks reasonable in print. A casual gamer spending $450 on a 360+Kinect. Doesn’t look as reasonable in print does it? Microsoft needs Kinect to draw people in to buy a 360 because the ps3 is catching up in sales…fast. Sony isn’t any more innocent when it comes to taking your money, BUT, at least they give the existing hardcore game owners who already gave Sony their cash something to take advantage of with the Move. I appreciate that. I don’t feel like I was ignored and left out.

Out of curiosity alone, a good number of ps3 hardcore gamers will at some point try the Move. A friend will have the Move, they’ll try it out, find it doesn’t suck as much as they thought it would, maybe even find it cool, and buy the Move. I find it hard to believe a 25 year old hardcore gamer guy will try out Kinectimals and think “I’ve got to get this. This is so cool. I get to pet a tiger”.

By the way, the person responsible for coming up with the name Kinect should be fired and sent to rehab. They need help. I’m not thrilled about the name The Move either but I’ll take that over Kinect.

No matter how much hardcore 360 owners don’t want to admit it, they would like to take advantage of motion control for hardcore games or at least games that don’t suck. Why? Change of pace, because it might be interesting, break up the monotony like trying a different flavor of ice cream.

Accuracy, price, and games. The Move wins all three categories. Move games will be $40, Kinect games…$50. Everyone knows…EVERYONE, that the Move is move accurate. Even 360 fanboys will admit to that. How important is accuracy and lag in a motion control device? Ummm…pretty important. “It didn’t jump when I did”. Yeah, enjoy that. Plenty of disappointed 360 owners seen the selection of games for Kinect. The Move easily has more diverse and interesting games coming out. “But Kinect shows possibilities other motion controls can’t do”. Ask hardcore gamers(the bread and butter of the 360 and ps3) if they care. Ask the typical hardcore gamer how much he or she cares about Milo. “You can communicate with a fake, animated friend and hand it a paper to draw on”. That’s not impressive…that’s sad.

How important is innovation when it sucks? Everyone was thrilled about Milo? Really? Imagine yourself “playing” with Milo and think about how stupid and creepy that really is. An adult male “playing” with an animated child. No…that’s not creepy at all.

Yeah, I’m a ps3 fanboy. Microsoft turned me into one when they sold me a game console that doesn’t work. 3 dead 360’s in a year and a half. No, I didn’t use it in a confined space or jump on it. Yes…I’m still anal and a cry baby about getting ripped off for $400. Stupid me for getting pissed about getting ripped off for hundreds of dollars. Had my ps3 for two full years. Play it for longer periods of time than I did the 360. Runs like a dream. Sony a hardware company, Microsoft a software company…duh. I’ve learned my lesson. Live and learn.

    Spoken like a true gamer, sir. Seems that Sony came to the table with gamers in mind. I saw the vids from 2002 where the Playstation engineers were looking at motion controls and they could have half-assed a motion controller like Nintendo did and pushed it on the public as a “revolution”. They didn’t. Why?? Because Sony clearly has a commitment to making good games, and putting the best tech in developers hands to create great games. Microsoft is turning their back on their rabid hardcore base the same way they turned their back on the original Xbox. I really would love for the Kinect to live up to its promises and be a successful product, but the more I see the more it appears that Kinect is just an improved Eye Toy. People keep talking about Kinect’s potential, but how exactly can we apply controller-less gaming to genres we love so much? In a 3rd person perspective, how can you move your character without running into your TV? In an FPS how would you reload? Would you have to say reload? And if that’s the case, if you have friends over to watch, do they have to sit silently so the Kinect doesn’t get confused?

    Point is I’m a gamer therefore I want something to enhance my games. Kinect doesn’t appeal to me at the moment, maybe if they have some genius developer create something truly original it’ll peak my interest but until then all we have from MS is disappointment.

I believe that the PS Move is also the best choice.
I would hope that Kinect does better than expected, but just like the eyetoy and ps eye, I doubt the devs are gonna spend much time with this kind of configuration again. I believe the devs would concentrate on the Move instead, because it’s more advanced than the Wii. Personally the PS Move is the type of controller and game play I’ve been wanting for. Thank You Sony!

Okay, none of you know what you are talking about when it comes to the Kinect vs. the PlayStation Eye.

The PlayStation Eye can only detect your face, and stuff on your face… It also monitors the color of the Move’s ball on top. Nothing more.

The Kinect? It can monitor 22 points on your body, down to your fingers. The PlayStation Eye is not capable of that! IT IS COMPLETELY CONTROLLERLESS! The Move is NOT.

You seriously think the general public is going to be in awe at the Move? Hell no. The majority of the public doesn’t care that the Move is more precise than the Wii. THEY DO NOT CARE. All they will see the Move as is a complete and utter ripoff of the Wii (which it is. Don’t give me that “Sony was researching this forever” crap. No one cares. It only matters who had it out, working, on sale, first).

People WILL be in awe that the Kinect has NO CONTROLLERS. That will blow their mind.

Go away idiots.

    FanBoys Make Me Spit August 21, 2010

    I beg to differ. First off, I suggest you take a look at a special little game called “Kung Fu Live.”

    Next I ask that you stop doing what you are claiming others are doing, being ignorant and not doing any research. Maybe you should see that the PS Move has been on the top preordered items for the past few months and has recieved critical acclaim and awards for best new hardware in the gaming arena.

    I have both a 360 and a PS3 and don’t forget, yes I even own a Wii. I am by no means a fanboy. I am a gamer. But a true gamer wouldnt nit pick at everything. I already preordered my PS move. When I get more money and see a title that I’m actually interested in, I might actually get the Kinect. But so far Move has taken the top spot with accuracy, better response, better games and over all just being better. Stop being butt hurt that less people are interested in a Microsoft peripheral. It’s not the first time the company has put out hardware that has been overshadowed. Look at the Zune. I personally love Zunes, still doesnt take away from the fact that it sells a lot less and cant do as much as the iPod.

    Move will do better than Kinect. Pretty much end of the story.

    I believe that after the last e3, the general consensus was that although the Kinect has no controllers, it turned out to be the least impressive device. The reason was due to the lack of accuracy of the controller-less device. People said it was horrendous and often left people flailing around trying to get the device to detect the correct movement they wanted. In addition, the launch title games for the Kinect aren’t expected to be very fun for real gamers, but more of a “look what we can do” showcase.

    On the other hand, the Playstation Move impressed everyone with it’s pinpoint accuracy and excellent lineup of new and old titles that will work with the device.

      Dude, i am with you. how does Microsoft expect devs to make an immersive game when there is no input device. This is common sense. Even the Kinect games that I would be excited about, which would be the Star Wars game that NO ONE has seen, I still can’t picture myself flailing around my living room like an idiot with a gerbal in his underpants. What would my friends say if they saw me doing this?

      @ Aldo: We all know what Microsoft is offering, we have all researched it, But be for real…tell me what game are you actually interested in playing? How long do you think you will play it? when you are done with that game, what is the next one you will play? I don’t want to play with pretend kittens, pretend 12 year old boys, or pretend dance in my living room. That is NOT cool. If you asked me, holding a controller is more immersive than not holding one anyway.

      It really is a shame. I was extremely excited about Kinect/Natal when i first heard about it. I thought, this is awesome tech. Then, I started wondering, How is Microsoft gonna make this work with AAA titles? How could you possible use this in a FPS? The answer, as we all know now, is that you can’t. I think Microsoft is using this tech in the wrong market. Kinect tech would be amazing for my PC, My TV, Blu-ray (microsoft is still yet to admit the love blu-ray tho).

    Wow… OK, let’s do this.

    “The PlayStation Eye can only detect your face, and stuff on your face… It also monitors the color of the Move’s ball on top. Nothing more.”

    Incorrect. The Eye can body-track as well (EyeToy Antigrav on the PS2 shows this). The controller adds to this not just with the ball on top, but with three different types of motion sensors inside to help when the ball may not be visible.

    “The Kinect? It can monitor 22 points on your body, down to your fingers. The PlayStation Eye is not capable of that! IT IS COMPLETELY CONTROLLERLESS! The Move is NOT.”

    That’s fine, I’m still not impressed. Kinect is limiting itself by not including a controller. A burger may be superior to fries in every way possible, but if I can choose to have a burger AND fries, I’ll prefer that.

    “The majority of the public doesn’t care that the Move is more precise than the Wii. THEY DO NOT CARE.”

    Incorrect again. The Move’s precision could bring RTS games to the PS3 because of its precision (I think RUSE is already slated to do so). Also, the jitters that show up in Wii games are really annoying, even to casual gamers. Move’s range of motion will be better, too. A Full-arm punch can be used instead of a flick of the wrist. THAT’S definitely a noticable improvement.

    “Don’t give me that “Sony was researching this forever” crap. No one cares. It only matters who had it out, working, on sale, first).”

    Eyetoy: Released 2003.
    PS Eye: 2007
    PS Move: Scheduled for Sept. 19th, 2010 in NA.
    Kinect: Scheduled for Nov. 10th, 2010 in NA.

    “People WILL be in awe that the Kinect has NO CONTROLLERS. That will blow their mind.”

    It failed to do so with the Eyetoy and PSEye. Sony learned from this and realised that people still want some sort of controller option.

      Wrong…you may have forgot the failure that was the power glove. That occurred long before the idea of the PS1 was even in the minds of Sony. Doesn’t change the fact it was the first one though.

      Also, your flick of the wrist analogy only works with the original Wii Mote…after Motion Plus came out that changed (Red Steel 2, Wii Sports Resort).

    aldo you are an idiot.

    Kinect cannot track your fingers. That is a myth. They can’t even detect if your hand is opened or closed. It’s on their list of stuff to implement in the future, in other words, there is not even the slightest bit of implementation currently in.

    There are 360 joins in the human body, Kinect tracks 20 of them. How can you be impressed by this? You think it tracks fingers? For crying out loud, you have 27 joints IN EACH HAND. Really, don’t talk about things you have no idea about.

    Kinect can’t detect players sitting, the camera actually has LOWER specs than the PSEye, face scanning is not even in early stages of implementation, neither is scanning of objects, Kinect as of yet cannot identify players based on their voice, side poses do not work, joint rotation doesn’t get tracked (major issue), many clothing textures are not tracked and cause the camera to stop tracking, you must be at least a meter from your TV, and worst of all FULL BODY SKELETAL TRACKING ONLY WORKS FOR 2 PLAYERS MAXIMUM BECAUSE KINECT CAN ONLY TRACK 46 JOINTS AT A TIME (20 PER)… if that isn’t enough to make you question how broken this device still is, keep in mind that I haven’t even mentioned some of the worst things with it.

    Did you know that both Sony and Nintendo declided the Kinect technology? They both tested it extensively, it was pathetic. Microsoft took the scraps.

While the move is not new technology. (Nintendo wii) Neither is kinect. (Playstation eyetoy) Sony is however the first to put the two technologies together. This creates more imput information from the user and gives more precise control of the game. Plus I like that move puts you in the game on it’s pet game. Not a human shaped blob or avitar like kinect does on it’s games.

I’m on my 4th 360 so pretty much refuse to use it after being burned time after time. logical answer is the ps3. how old are you Isaiah? maybe your logical combo should be ps3/360 being thAt their the only systems with actual non lollypop kids games.

okay the developer of the playstation eye said camera only controls are great however there was a limit to the things a camera only game could do. He would know since hes been in R&D deparment working with camera games for over 10yrs so this revolutionary Kinect will be limited compared to a controller and camera setup period. Also most of the games are on a rail system meaning im just along for the ride for example the racing game where you cant accelerate or brake or worse yet I CANT PLAY KINECT SITTING DOWN! Now how revolutionary is that? someone explain maybe i’ll get the concept of standing up for 3 hours to play my favorite game.

Kinect is a waste of time. Microsoft obviously wasn’t paying attention when Sony toted with the same tech when working on their EyeToy years ago. Controllerless gaming might be good for waggle type games that the wii can already do but for true motion control gaming that appeals to hardcore and casual gamers alike Playstation Move is the way to go. Move offers gamers true 1:1 motion control without the amount of lag present in the Wii or Kinect. IGN’s recent article stating that the Move is no different from the Wii , is purely a paid attempt by Microsoft to extinguish the strong sales that Playstation Move is already generating. It’s funny to see recent articles from Kinect developers stating that Kinect will accessorize, when the who point of the device is controllerless gaming. With a software launch lineup that is severely lacking I’d much rather be able to play a slew of games new and retrofitted for the Playstation Move than no games at all. Move will be able to control existing titles like MAG, LittleBigPlanet, Tiger Woods Golf, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, High Velocity Bowling… And with upcoming titles like Sorcery, Gran Tourismo 5, Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, SOCOM 4… And Move specific titles like Sports Champions, The Fight, Sorcery, The Shoot…. it is easy to see that Move has already the largest game library than Kinect. Titles which were thought to be getting Kinect treatment on the Xbox are now claiming not to such as Fable 3.
Miitoo comments about the Move are clearly uneducated attempts to describe a device that they know little about. The Move is a camera based motion control system that can detect fullbody motion like Kinect but also offers the precision of a controller, this is clearly not Like the Wii. Move also can detect motion on the X, Y, Z axis which allows for detection of rotation and full motion gestures similar to wii-motion plus but not exactly. What separates Move from Wii is the glowing orb on the top of the Move device, with this the Playstation Eye camera can judge the distance of the controller from it as well as the orientation allowing for 3 dimensional control. If anything I’ve seen so far is Wii-like it’s the Kinect with it’s waggle type games such as the kickball bopping game.
Hopefully I haven’t left out any key items from my Move descriptions. If one just looks at what I’ve said and also looks at the amazing tech demo videos one can see the potential of Move. So far Kinect has little to show that will appeal to hardcore and those that are sick of the waggle inaccuracies of the Wii controller.

Wii rip-off or not, I do think the Move can be a good motion control if it has the game support. I’m all for innovation but whats wrong with adopting and improving on rival technology? Its been happening with gamepads for generations! Even Kinect is a clever evolution of an EyeToy. If Kinect or Move are successful, I won’t be surprised if Nintendo include cameras in their next motion control system.

Richard August 21, 2010

@isiah You mention knock off products but seem unaware that the pseye has been doing motion capture for a while. Until the 360 uses the camera and dedicated controllers like the ps3 I think it will struggle after the initial sales spike at launch. I suppose time will tell!

Isaiah August 21, 2010

Screw Move, I already have a wii, and that is really all the Move is. It’s obviously a knockoff product all the way through. Plus the tracking isn’t that much better to get me to buy it. Just look at the video reviews at ign, they say it feels just like wii

Kinect on the other hand isn’t a knockoff. It’s an evolution to the technology and not a me-too product. Everyone already has a wii, if they want something new then they’ll get kinect too. Here comes wii360 all over again.

    Isaiah, you may want to consider the fact that Kinect is a direct rip-off of the old Eye Toy. If you remember, Sony dabbled with controller-less tech about ten years ago. And though Kinect is a far more advanced system, the principle remains the same.

      fer August 23, 2010

      Waldo, there is no relationship whatsoever between the Eye Toy and Kinnect, Kinnect uses infrared and tracks the skeleton whereas EyeToy did not.

      I am not saying which one is better, but changing the facts to make a point does not help the discussion.

      Cheers
