Sony's answer to the Wii Remote and Microsoft Kinect. Discuss.
I think people are making to much of this "moving around while playing a video game" bullshit. Its had its day and I don't think its "innovative' or even "cool' anymore. Its just a bunch of money grubbing manufacturers cashing in on a fad that they know people will be dumb enough to pay money for even though they've got the same thing already with the Wii.
Let's not forget that this whole moving your butt off the couch/chair thing was tried over a decade ago by Sega with the introduction of the Sega Activator controller. And we all know how badly that idea flopped. Activator barely sold and was off the market in less than a year due to such poor sales. We gamers are bonified couch potatoes. If a game company wanted to make something we'd actually be willing to buy they'd been to make a though controller so we wouldn't have to mover out fingers while we played games, I know I'd buy that!
Yeah that'd be pretty cool.
The Move controller will cost $49.99, the navigation controller $29.99, and the PlayStation Eye $39.99. A bundle with all three of those pieces and a copy of Sports Champions will be available for a discounted price of $99.99.

too much for me to spend on a wii hd add on. the big bundle sounds decent, but the individual controls cost too much. just think about getting an extra set for two players. no gracias.
it amuses me seeing you reiterate that statement, but there's somewhat of an agreement upon it.
I found this on the same website and thought it was pretty humorous.
:: last two had me going? ::
Ha. VG Cats verifying what I've already said. Fuck the Kinect, the Wiis already using the same concept.
Correct me on this I'm wrong. Kinect won't use the stupid Wii-motes to achieve what the Wii can only due thanks to the Wii-motes right?
Bought a Wii last weekend and hating the Wii-mote. Well, at least as a game controller I hate it, working great for PC related things.
ya right, Kinect won't have any motion controllers. it's like an advanced Sony EyeToy.
PS3 will be combining all those items into one package, EyeToy and Wii ripoff motion controllers.
