ps3

Reasons:
1. that not seen an add for it; while xbox konnect adds are everywhere-meaning they need to heavily promote it because it's an inferior product.

2. PS vs better than the Xbox.

3. Ipod was better than the mps player.

I don't expect microsoft to do a good job, have a good price or not to have hidden rip offs built into their products.

1st of all: it's an ad not an add
2nd: according to that logic the iphone is worse than nokias cheapest cell phone because they dont advertise it

uhm...so???



from a technical standpoint the kinect is much more interesting since you dont need a controller. and there are already some open source kinect drivers for linux and windows (and macos i guess).
i wouldnt buy a xbox for it but if i had one i would certainly not switch to the ps3 just because of move.

Microsoft has a pattern of heavily hyping a product when it's inferior, the fact that they're so screaming for attention is a tell they're again inferior.

This comes down to the reality that the microsoft engineering team is not an A team and one should not expect them to be better.

I think Fox may well be right though about the alternatives to both.

First off, Windows 7 was heavily hyped and Windows 7 > XP pro >>> Vista. (Whether it's better than OS X or Linux is, I believe, more a matter of individual preference over objective quality.)

Second, to the original question, I have an Xbox 360 and just got a Kinect. I like it quite a bit. I haven't played with a Move, but I think they're aimed at 2 different audiences (at least with the games that are available at launch.) Kinect is much more like a Wii was when it came out. Most of the games are workout and kid's games, whereas the Move has more hardcore gamer games. I'm not sure how Kinect is going to transition into games like FPS and tactical shooters without having a controler (or a gun) whose trigger you have to pull. So, in that respect the Kinect is more Wii-like than the Move. Although, the Kinect's ability to respond to voice commands and do video chats with anyone on Windows Live Messenger could be a plus depending on whether you use that service much.

Finally, a bit of comic relief. This is my favorite Vista vs. Windows 7 cartoon. Be sure to check the mouseover text. http://xkcd.com/528/

pretty sure that's bollocks.

that's certainly true, if you're into endlessly repetitive japanese rpgs and playing dress up, but what if you want to get called a fag by an overweight teenager with adhd and acne whose only experience of getting his dick wet was pissing himself on the first day of big school?

obviously, that's why Apple have spent somewhere around a billion dollars marketing it.

okay so what you're saying is, you're massively prejudiced against microsoft?

my actual thoughts on the subject; i don't give a fuck. if i wanted to jump about like an idiot i'd buy a wii.
