Found 7th Nov 2010
I want an active console, so I got a wii but the graphics and the games are a bit gimmicky, so which do you think would be the best console to get a new xbox or a new ps3 ?

which is going to allow proper games like COD and FIFA to be played ? - if any ?

Thanks

You won't get too many honest opinions on here, save for yet another episode of fan-boy nonsense.

I have a PS3, but I do appreciate that the XBOX is noted for being more of a gaming machine.

I wouldn't buy a new console for either Kinect or Move, at least not for the next six months, when we may see what they are actually capable of. Launch day software for both accessories has been mediocre at best, and certainly no more or less gimmicky than what the Wii has to offer.

Personally I have a Wii and a PS3, which complement each other pretty well. I am sure the same could be said of owning a Wii and a 360.

Ive got move and ive pre-ordered kinect, i would say dont bother with move until anything decent comes out, singstar dance isnt even that good for the move, but until kinect comes out no one wqill really have a good idea if its any good.

Simple answer is get the console the majority of your friends have so you are set for online gaming.

As far as Kinect vs Move I would say the Move has the edge in the short-term as it will be familiar to Wii gamers but the Kinect feels like it will have a longer lifespan, especially if it becomes available on PC as some 360 peripherals have, as interactive and voice activated media centre controls would be amazing.

okay cheers, I've had a 360 before, in fact i still have it but its been banned from live so I don't bother with it anymore - most of my mates have the xbox so live is good but the move looks to have better games so far as the kinect games look a bit like wii games

I will just wait for another few weeks and see what happens ... cheers

My xbox was fun seeing that it was flashed! =] but then Live was expensive at £35/40 to play online!
Now that i'm banned of Live, im getting the Move for my PS3 and jailbreak that too! (and PSN is free unlike Live)

IMO Kinect is very expensive, wait till the price drops after christmas. and if you don't actually play online(seeing as you have a Wii ) - look to get it flashed/jailbroken - (google it) - you can get both then because the prices for banned consoles are very cheap

Hope that helps

I think the Wii 2 will be better than them both

Haven't got the Kinect (yet?) but the Move is going down well here.

The Puu?

Playstation move is far more accurate, responsive and the controller is considerably lighter and it doesn't need batteries which is a plus, and you can charge and play at the same time. The games are fairly good, the best being sport champions.

Lets be honest Move should be better than the wii theyve had years to make it better, i disagree with sports champions being any goods, its ok i just think they have given up on the move already, im waiting for that move game to come out which wows me.

In what sense of the word do you use "gimmicky" as surely Kinect and Move are just that compared to the Wii?

Well it's the best game atm, in terms of price too.. Would be nice to see some sort of fps which incorporates move. Hmm...

"M.A.G" already does.

Also of note: "Resident Evil 5 (Gold Edition)" (already available) & out next year will be "SOCOM: Special Forces" (due in the first quarter of 2011) that has been developed with consideration for PlayStation Move support.

BFN,

fp.

Im just not that impressed how sony seem to have given up on it, singstar dance for example they poorly added move support. I own Move and i really want to like it i just can't until something comes out I want to use it with.

Kinect has one good game - Dance Central.

Move has none.
