Alright so I am annoyed, all I have heard since the rumors of Kinects price point is that $150 is to much and that Move is the better deal.
Move + Eyetoy bundle $99
Sub Controller (nunchuck) $ 29
Charging Station $29
Move alone is $49
My view is both cost about the same, but you are much more likely to get multiplayer games for the Kinect, mostly because you can. The fact that some of the demo's were using more than one move also add to that cost.
I just wish I knew which device is more computationally expensive, as this will impact how much you have to leave out of your art to use the alternate input devices.
At first, Move SEEMED really cheap when they said it was $50... then you add $30 for the Son-unchuk (Sony's got brass balls for these two blatant copies), $30 for the PlayStation Eye and you're at $110 for ONE person
$190 for two people and add $80 a piece for a third and fourth... (just like with the Wii)
So then Kinect seems like the price winner...
My only thing is I haven't seen good demos for Kinect... I saw a really bad one (here on gdgt) with Kinect controlling the Zune Music Market and it was unresponsive, clumsy, and picked up things it shouldn't have. I'm beginning to doubt that it will effectively be able to deal with 2 people, much less 4, simultaneously AND be fun... They trotted out the usual minigames but nothing that THAT ONE KILLER game..
as far as I am concerned right now, Move is the best compromise between Kinect and Wii, having enhanced gyroscope support and camera tracking. Sony's commercials have one really good point about Kinect - most games do need buttons.. and joysticks.. I would love to see them get past this somehow, but for now at least, I can't see that happening...
and before you get crazy you should know I'm not gonna buy either system for a long time as I think they are both overpriced.... I've spent so much between consoles and games and rentals and Rock Band/Guitar Hero equipment that frankly I'm disgusted they cost as much as they do...
I think the cost of entry, hardware-wise, should be MUCH lower and the games should be a lot cheaper as well to cater to the casual audience and the, frankly, lower production values of the games they showed...
they would either need to be off-center or I would need to move my center channel... or maybe try to mount it to my center channel (which already sits right in front of the Wii sensor bar!)
Personally, I hope all 3 systems have great motion based games as it just benefits the consumer and the video game industry more in general :)
