Let’s face it, Microsoft’s Kinect and Sony’s PlayStation Move are nothing but marketing schemes to stop the Wii’s dominating sells onslaught, and while it may seem as if both Microsoft and Sony are late to the party, both companies will sell their fare share of motion controlled systems, but Kinect is specifically made to sell to the casual gamers, which equals, ‘greater sales’.
One example of how consumer friendly Kinect is, would be the one single Kinect camera consumers would purchase, while the PS Move may confuse consumers with separate accessories and prices.
