Peter Molyneux, the man behind the Fable series and Microsoft employee, believes that the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Move are basically the same. In terms of the motion control arms race, Molyneux went on to tell UGO that Microsoft has gone "one step beyond" with Kinect.
"They seem very similar in their scope," he said. "I know Sony and Nintendo would argue that they are different, but they kind of seem the same. They enable certain sorts of experiences, and they are analogous to Kinect."
Molyneux also said believes Kinect is the next big step forward for motion control: "I have to take my hat off to Microsoft, because they really did go one step beyond what they needed to do. It would be very easy for them to have created something like the Wii, but instead they did go that extra mile and they said, "˜No, we're going to make that huge step.'"
PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect hit store shelves this fall.
