The Wii set the trend for motion controllers, and now both Sony and Microsoft have joined the fray

Following the success of the Wii’s motion controller, it was only a matter of time before Microsoft and Sony jumped on the bandwagon. Sony came first with the Move and was soon followed by Microsoft with its Kinect. All of the controllers use vastly different technologies with varying advantages and disadvantages. Since the Wii is already well established and the Wii motion plus attachment only serves to augment the controller, we have chosen to not directly include it in the comparison. Rather we will use it as a reference to compare the other two. So to not delay you any further, here is our joint review of the Kinect and the Move.
