Kinect for Xbox 360 versus Playstation Move, Wii wins?

Kinect for Xbox 360 versus Playstation Move, Wii wins?

Buy Nintendo Wii from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Microsoft and Sony detailed their upcoming motion controller at the E3 2010. Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360 is a controller free experience with voice control. Sony gives you controllers to hold on to during game play like the Wii.
What is the better solution? For Nintendo the winner is still the Wii. Nintendo's Reggie made it clear during the Nintendo E3 2010 media event that the Wii is still a hot seller breaking sales records past holidays.

Since Nintendo does not bring any new hardware for the living room, Nintendo still bets on the Wii to hold its own during the battle between Kinect for Xbox 360 and Playstation Move the coming holidays.

I consider myself an early adopter who is always on the hunt for the next new tech experience. Microsoft's Kinect is pushing more of my buttons at the moment. The idea of controlling not just games, but also media and video conferencing in the living room is mind boggling. I want this. If Microsoft is smart they add a Universal remote adapter to have the Xbox control also other home theater components: "Xbox, turn on TV", "Xbox, CNN".

Sony is "only" positioning the Playstation Move controllers for game play. They argue that you need buttons to play games like shooters. I agree, but then Microsoft just can sell guns that work on top of Kinect.
Playstation Move is also supposed to be super accurate, which is a shot towards Nintendo Wii.

One of the deciding factors on who wins this holiday season in terms of sale is the price. The cost for equipping your PS3 for Playstation Move for one player is $100. This price includes the Playstation Eye camera, a Move controller and two discs.
Microsoft did not come forward with a price for Kinect yet, but it is rumored to be $150. Update: Walmart offers Kinect for pre-order for $149.96.
Here comes the Wii into play. You get a complete console with the new Wii plus and Wii Resort for $200.
Motion control will be a huge topic for the coming holidays, but all the drumming by Sony and Microsoft might actually work in favor for Nintendo because of the very low cost to entry.

Additionally the Wii is proven to work. Kinect has demoed really well, but if it will work as advertised in real living room settings is not known yet. Same is true for the Playstation Move.
It is going to be an exciting Holiday shopping season for video gamer, that is for sure.
