Analyst: Sony Motion Controller "superior" to Natal
Many, many people believe that the 360's Project Natal was the winner over the PS3's Motion Controller. But not analyst Doug Creutz. He believes the PlayStation 3 Wand is "superior" to Natal.
"The Project Natal demo from Microsoft got most of the ink, but I really thought Sony's demo was superior from a gaming perspective." said Creutz, he also added "Natal appeared to me a technological solution in search of a problem.
Creutz expressed his feelings whilst speaking to Gamasutra. "Do I really care if I can navigate my Netflix queue without using a controller? I had a very hard time envisioning playing Modern Warfare 3 using Natal. By contrast, I had a very easy time envisioning it (and enjoying it) using Sony's control/motion capture scheme."
He finalized by saying "In contrast, Sony is squarely targeting the core gamer market, which is what they need to be doing. Of course, there is a wide chasm between a demo and a finished, playable, appropriately-priced product."
