Such is the conclusion of our resident gaming geek, who says it’s not even close: Sony will obliterate Microsoft in a battle for the gamers of the future. (via Techland)
“Let’s get this out of the way – Sony will dominate the next generation motion control wars,” says Techland’s Peter Ha, breaking down both the Playstation Move and the Kinect for Xbox 360.
“I’ve been a long-time supporter of Microsoft’s Xbox platform, so it pains me to say that. But I’ve seen a few things the public haven’t been privy to and spent extensive time with both platforms. While Sony did an incredible job trying to convert this self-proclaimed Xbox fanboy weeks ago, it wasn’t until I spent an adequate amount of time with Kinect that I saw the light. Microsoft made it pretty clear during their press conference that they’re going after the casual gamer. In other words, they want Nintendo’s lunch money and they’re poised to do just that. But from a technological standpoint, Kinect has nothing on Move.”
