Back to the topic. I'll agree that this article was probably in the works for some time and they will probably have something in the next issue regarding the Kinect and how it isnt just for the kiddies or something regarding the various hacked uses for the technology that have popped up over the past week.
I loved popular science and am contemplating getting a new subscription. It is only $18 for two years for me.
I have both move and kinect and i agree the move out performs the kinect. My favorite game is Fight Lights Out in 3D. It is so damn responsive, tracks as fast as i can punch along with depth,angle,&speed. Great precision. On the other hand i rented Uncaged Fighters for kinect and the responsiveness and lag was horrible, it would only read about half of the moves i was doing. It made me want to throw it out the window after half an hour. The kinect has potential but they need to improve on responsiveness and lag.
I don't think any of the hardware really matters in the case of the products. Whoever has the best software packages backing them up will win hands down.
I think that is the biggest catch with those fighter games, I heard absolutely EVERYTHING sucked about the kinect one (graphics, sound, gameplay, concept)
I did finally get to play a kinect in best buy, and the precision is going to kill this unless they start making software to show off what it does best. The only game I got to play was bowling though (lame...) so I need to give it anyother try.
Even if the Move had better games, Kinect will still "win".. It's different enough from anything else, so people are willing to accept any minor flaws to try something new, especially something as hyped and marketed as this.
