Microsoft is confident that Kinect will have a bigger Launch than the Nintendo Wii

Microsoft will launch the controller free gaming system Kinect for the Xbox 360 on November 4th. Aaron Greenberg, Chief of Staff for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business said in an interview with Eurogamer that Microsoft will definitely sell more Kinect sensors than the Wii sold when it launched or the Xbox 360 wen it launched. Microsoft feels save to assume that they will sell 3 million Kinect sensors this Holiday.

I have the same expectation. Microsoft Kinect is bringing something entirely new to gaming. Kinect has caught the imagination of gamers and it does not matter that Kinect will is getting mixed reviews or that you have to clean-up your living room before you play. The wow effect is there with Kinect. No controller to hold and voice commands make the Xbox 360 a lot more attractive. Microsoft even updated the Xbox 360 console itself.

Microsoft will gain a lot of new Xbox 360 gamers with Kinect this holiday season. In contrast to Sony. I believe most Playstation Move controllers will only be bought by existing PS3 owners and not lure many new gamers to the PS3 console.

The Wii will still be attractive choice this Holiday shopping season. The new Wii console bundles include the new Wii Remote Plus. The advantage of the Wii is still cost. There are tons of motion controller games available for the Wii at discount prices. The new Kinect and Playstation Move games are all selling for around $50 and of course the cheapest Xbox 360 with Kinect console is still $100 more expensive than a Wii console bundle.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
