Recently Microsoft just announced that the sale of the 10 millionth Kinect system. It took Kinect 5 months to reach 10 million sales, something that the Wii took nearly 2 years to reach. To be fair, the Wii console was at least $100 more expensive than the Kinect, but an impressive feat nonetheless. I am sure that Playstation would be more than pleased to sell 10 million Move systems during the products entire existence. The announcement did get me thinking about which motion gaming system is the best.
To start with, I have played all three systems and I have had enjoyable experiences with each. However, every competition needs a winner, and in this one I would crown the Wii as king. Playstation Move had some decent game play, but it just didn’t hold up to the variety and performance of the Kinect and the Wii. It is still new, and I have faith in Sony’s ability to improve it, but for now it stays as my #3. Coming in a close second was the Kinect. Microsoft did some incredible things with its launch of the Kinect system. There is an impressive selection of games to choose from, and even more importantly some innovative and new ideas for motion gaming. In general I enjoyed sports-type motion gaming games best on the Kinect.
Taking the cake though had to be the Wii for me though. I may be a bit biased on this as I am a Super Smash Brothers addict. Part of the reason I rank the Wii as the top is the Nintendo collection and the game play of games like the super smash brothers franchise and Mario party. Overall though, the Wii offered the best choice for games, and more of a variety of game styles. So there are my rankings, I’m sure you will all have some differing opinions (based off my “iPad has a camera… who cares” post). So let’s hear it, which console do you go to for your motion gaming?
