E3 2010: Move more accurate than Kinect, says BBC
BBC blog casts doubts whether the Kenict can cope with serious gameplay
While everyone was caught up in the surreal spectacle of Microsoft's pre-E3 Kenict showcase, the BBC is claiming that Sony's Move controller may be better suited to hardcore gaming due to its 'improved precision'.
According to one of its reporters who gave both motion control systems a quick playtest, the Sony Move, which retains the controller, but now interacts with a sensor unit on the television, is "much less radical" and "less physical" than the Kenict, but "delivers a lot more precision".
While the BBC enjoyed the sports games on the Kenict, describing the experience as a "sweaty half-hour", it threw up doubts over whether the technology could cope with serious games that delve beyond the realm of 'fun Wii-style gameplay'.
Conversely, the BBC described a table-tennis game using Sony's Move technology (to be properly unveiled on Tuesday) as mimicing "the real thing much more closely than I have seen elsewhere".
Very interesting early impressions, indeed.
