Reggie: No one would want Move when they have Wii

Wednesday, 17 March 2010 12:48 GMT By Johnny Cullen

NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime has said there’s no point getting PlayStation Move if you have a Wii.

Speaking with Industry Gamers, he said:

“So I’m a consumer and I’m having a great experience with my Wii. And we know that’s the case – we look at the software that’s being purchased. Consumers love the Wii. What’s going to motivate them to spend minimally $300 for a new [PS3] system, plus minimally $100 for the Move motion bundle?

“So [as a consumer] now I’m into this for $400 and I still have to spend money on software. What’s going to motivate me to do that?”

That’s despite comments made last week by Fils-Aime, where he said he was “flattered” over what Sony was doing with the motion controller.

Move is due out in fall.

    Lol if people own a Wii as well as a PS3, I’m sure those owners won’t care about a “little” extra expense to buy Move. More money than sense.

  4. Hero of Canton

    He’s not really saying no-one would want it, more suggesting it’s unlikely to drive PS3 sales and that it’s perhaps too similar to Wii to make people migrate. Of course, those who already own a PS3 might well be tempted to splash out, but that’s another story.

    Natal’s quite a different proposition, which is why I imagine he’s not talked about it in the same way.

    his comments are very narrow minded, what if the PS3 Move has the better games? Not everyone wants a Mario/Zelda every year.

    Don’t live in US but I guess that the Wii cost around 250$ and then you need to buy Wii fit for 100$.

    The Wii experience cost you around 350$

    And I believe that Sony will give out a all included bundle for around 350$ to match Wii.

    Price drop from Nintendo at E3???

    You know what, the more I hear Reggie bad mouth Move, the more I think Nintendo could actually be rattled by it.

    You can’t dispute the maths he’s calling out, but the Wii’s motion abilities are pretty much all it’s got going for it. If people get a PS3 they also get a media hub, HD games console, online network, movie and tv rental/purchasing, Blu-Ray and Move coupled with PSEye is actually a far better motion solution than Nintendo have anyway.

    The PS3 is useful beyond being wheeled out as a party device every now and again, and I guess Sony are hoping people will see the PS3 as an all in one box, and dump the Wii for it.

    Maybe he is right. But folks who don’t own a console but do own a HDTV-set there aren’t anymore reason to buy a wii.

    He’s not really bad-mouthing it, though, is he? Title and first sentence of the post are quite misleading.

    (Understandably so, as it’s a bit of a non-story otherwise. And getting hits is the name of the game.)

  14. OlderGamer

    I agree he isn’t bad mouthing Move.

    And I also agree with his thinking. I own a Wii and a PS3. I am not buying Move. I do enjoy the Wii, often. However it will never replace, in my mind, traditional gaming. Move, WiiMote, nor Natal. Those are just flashy gimmicks.

    I want perciese, dead on, pin point control. I want 16buttons and the ability to use them in combinations. I want duel analog sticks For my regular gaming I will stick with the XB360. Its online, it has the games I want to play, and it has the best controler ever made(opnion alert, yes that was my very own two cents).

    However one thing I do think some of you folks over state is the value of HD.

    I own a HD TV, most of us do. I use HD Cables for the Wii. It runs in 480p. Nope it isn’t 1080p, but it doesn’t have to be. Most of the nintendo games are plain and simple(but not in a bad way), we are talking WiiFit, Wii Sports, Super Mario, etc. They are colorful, and the screen is not crowded. Hard to explain, but it means that the simple presentation looks neat and crisp. Less is more. The Wii looks fine in 480p. The Wii games worth owning are made to run in 480sd/hd and that makes it good. If you tried to run BFBC2 in sd, you would have a problem. The screen would look too busey and stuff would look too small and condensed. the Wii doesn’t have that problem.

    I have no idea if Move will sell. I have a feeling that it won’t. I feel it is too expensive, and doesn’t do much to say I am not a Wii rip off.

    Time will tell.

    #14 5 years ago
  15. Robo_1

    In general though, he has been bad mouthing the Move. His previous comments of how he’s embarrassed to watch his competitors playing catch up in the motion control space, and his prior remarks saying:

    “I think the key question is, how will they respond when we continue to innovate if this is their best effort?”

    At the very least, he’s damning them with faint praise.

    #15 5 years ago
  16. theevilaires

    Wait until E3 before you make your final judgment O.G. if you think the Wii is a gimmick then why did you buy one….cause of your kids and wife? Maybe they will like MOVE better.

  17. Gheritt White

    @17: IMHO, X360 has the joint first best gamepad ever – it’s tied with the GameCube (that pad was stellar).

    @7: Couldn’t agree more. I can’t wait for Move and the prospect of having a BluRay player bundled as well is a nice bonus.

    @TEA: If you’re gonna capitalise Sony and Move every time you write it, why not add the appropriate ™, ® and © symbols as well?

    Maybe they will like Move, Tea, maybe they will. But Like Reggie said, they already have a Wii. And really its the wife, my kids are grown save for two, both of them teens. Needless to say they enjoy xb360/PS3.

    The Wii has enjoyed stellar sales because of the wow factor, however, the deciding factor for Move will be the games.

    People will not be impressed by the gesture / motion controls alone for a second time, they will probably see it as a “me-too” gadget. So Move must impress them with the quality of its games.

    It will also be a non-standard PS3 controller, so developers / publishers will not be able to safely assume its install base (their potential customers) and invest accordingly. So, at first, 3rd parties will probably have it as a secondary / optional control scheme and not use it to its full potential (this is where 1st party support becomes crucial).

    Reggie should start wondering why the wii sells well, but wii games don’t (exept for some in particular).

    Also, we know the main reason for wii numbers is the motion controller, not graphics or great games or nextGen.

    I know Reggie is all about nintendo, but he might start to worry that Ps3 might take the place of “Wii HD”.
    And he should also consider a plastic surgery. That donkey kong look isn’t of any help.

    About sony, I don’t think they can’t make Move much cheaper.. but I believe that by the time its released they can make a new price cut for Ps3, and of course, bundles…

    #21 5 years ago
  22. theevilaires

    well if its just your wife who is mainly into the Wii then yea Reggie’s statement is half true. But I will have MOVE on day 1 (anyone surprised) and that cancels out his “No one” remark

    #22 5 years ago
  23. Hero of Canton

    But I think it’s telling that he’s not really directly referenced Natal. The thing with Move is that it’s almost identical to what Nintendo’s been doing for, what, three years now? A bit more precision isn’t going to sway the millions that bought into Wii to shelling out for Move. Hence the ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ comments and the wondering aloud where Sony goes when Nintendo does something new.

    If MOVE will have better precision than wii and people who are into the wii find out they may want to try and buy MOVE.

    the possibility is there. It will come down to marketing (which Sony will put a hell of a lot into) and price. The American economy is still shaky, you euros will buy it cause you have nothing else better to do over there and the Japs love PlayStation period so NATAL sorry buddy.

    @17 & @28
    360 controller is exceptional (bar the d-pad). I’d put it joint with one of these babies though … Konix Speedking

    On a general point the PS3 has quite a lot to offer a Wii owning family. Aside from the HD graphics, Blu-ray player and more general media capabilities it also has a load of great games which you play with a regular gaming controller. Something the Wii is lacking. Absolutely a Wiimote being the standard controller was the right thing for the Wii at launch. It has hampered it somewhat for more regular gaming though.

    @OlderGamer
    I think you make a good point about Wii graphics being plain and simple (and not in a bad way). I’d agree it’s clean, it’s never crisp though. Blocky is more the word. It doesn’t help that 480p doesn’t fit so well with native resolutions of HD LCD TVs though.

    #33 5 years ago
  34. ianbenoir

    I insist: the problem with wii players is that they’re stuck with a last-gen console.

    I think ppl learned how to play with wii. Now they’ll go for Move or Natal, which is a natural improvement, at least if Nintendo don’t show up soon with a new console or start talking about it right away. Its the only way to make nintendo fans stay with them. I bet that by now they should alredy be thinking about getting a blu-ray player for their homes anyway…

    And you know what? That’s always been the problem with nintendo: They know how to make lot of success but never how to keep up.

    it’s quite easy to logically rubbish the DS3 design.

    When Sony first created the original Playstation controller they put the controls in the optimum position, like this:

    http://i42.tinypic.com/x3trn9.jpg

    Then, halfway through the PS1 generation they added analogue controls, mindful (and this is the crux of the matter) that the digital controls would still be the primary controls for all old games and for all gamers who didn’t invest in the dualshock:

    http://i44.tinypic.com/6jddnk.jpg

    It seems like at this point they had already sacked their ergonomic designers, because they then released basically the the same configuration in Dualshock 2.

    http://i42.tinypic.com/14obr7r.jpg

    Then, we can see a grain of common sense, albeit from what was clearly a work experience guy drafted in, with the infamous batarang. Notice that the digital controls are pushed outwards in favour of the analogue sticks, almost curving onto the top of the pad:

    http://i43.tinypic.com/ipxnqs.jpg

    But of course Sony couldn’t take the heat over this slightly unconventional controller design, even though it was a clear admission that the Dualshock layout had had its day, so we’re left with the DS3.

    The fact that the 360 pad has triggers lets you know what the system is mainly about….shooters…and shitty ones at that (Shadow Run anyone)

    While the L2 and R2 are meant for racers like GT5, motorstorm, NFS. and the R1 and L1 are meant for FPS like COD and KZ2.

    Frod I can’t be bothered to read your bullshit after your first picture link. Obviously you are too young and probably started gaming on a xbox system before you could realize true greatest that was the PS1 and PS2 controller designs that became the “INDUSTRY LEAD CONTROLLER”

    Hmm. I’m pretty sure that Sony have released more shooters than Microsoft in this generation. So that doesn’t hold water either.

    I don’t really think anyone is denying that the 360 d-pad sucks, but the point is that it’s only used in such a tiny minority of games that it almost doesn’t matter – which makes the positioning of the left analogue on the DS3 all the more baffling.

    #52 5 years ago
  53. frod

    and that’s an ad hominem argument.

    Just one final point, I’m fairly the design of the analogue triggers is more to do with ergonomics, i.e. comfort and ease of use, than trying to look like a gun trigger.

    It’s also worth noting that one of the Playstation magazines gave away concave triggers with their magazine once (Gioteck Real triggers I think?). Interesting that no-one has thought to sell convex trigger attachments for the 360 pad however.

    I guess if you have a PS3, it could be a cool little novelty controller in case any of the entertaining Wii games make the jump.

    It just seems to me like it would be easier to buy a Wii and get the actual games that a controller like that was tailored for in the first place. I could see why Nintendo would be threatened by an HD console stealing their controller though, aside from queasy family games, that’s just about their biggest weakness.

    Either way, I’m not gonna be dancing and prancing in front of my TV any time soon.

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    @TEA
    Shadowrun was a great game – it was let down by lack of game modes/map for a full price game. Controls and balance wise it was a great game though.

    What makes the 360 controller great for shooters is nothing to do with buttons, it’s the sticks. Concave tops and perfect resistance.

    Oh how I wish online multiplayer was cross platform. Please if Sony and M$ are reading this let one game become online cross platform play so I can wipe the floor with the people who think they have the better edge with that 360 pad.

    IMO, people who will buy this might not have a Wii, or use their PS3 more and will get this as well.

    Its hardly like buying a second console.
    No one is under the illusion (well, maybe Sony) that this is the ‘new’ Wii, its just Sony’s own offering in this market, an accessory if you will.

    It won’t sell like the Wii did, but im sure it will do very well for Sony, and will be a nice extra to have, same can be said for Natal with Microsoft.

    I think people, as usual, are blowing this thing totally out of proportion.

    Both 360 and PS3 gamepads are stellar. They both are really great controllers and it just depends on your own opinion on comfort. I can easily pick up my xbox360 controller and play with it without one complaint. I can easily pick up my DS3 and play with it without a single compaint.
    I am more comfortable playing with the PS3 controller though. Its a matter of opinion.

    As far as Move goes. If people would look into Move seriously, they will notice the complete advantage it has over the Wii remote. Clearly the Move setup is technologically better than the Wii….but in a casual market, simplicity and word of mouth seems to rule.

    “Wow, SEGA really did make the worst pads in the business.”

    Please tell me this is a joke?

    The DC pad may have been a little plasticy, but its triggers were very much a precursor to the design of the Xbox controller.

    The Saturn D-Pad was straight up the best d-pad of any controller that’s ever been made. It was incredibly precise and fluid you actually *could* play fighting games with it, something that most other controllers sucked at.

    Also, that “shitty” controller you linked to was the first major analogue controller in mainstream gaming (if not the first analogue stick ever), well before the Dual Shock was released. It may have looked silly, but it felt *great* in your hands.

    Not to mention that the Mega Drive controller with its groves and curves was far more ergonomic than that brick that was the SNES controller.

  107. G1GAHURTZ

    No joke, Michael.

    I’ve never liked a single SEGA pad.

    Like I said about the Master System pad, one of the worst things about them, which the 360 D-pad is also guilty of, is that there is almost no clear distinction between the 8 directions.

    I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been trying to walk forward with Sonic, only for him to crouch on the spot.

    The main flaw with this type of D-pad, as remains the case today, is that they’re rubbish for fighting games. There used to be a time when I used to judge a controller on how accurate it was for doing a fireball, which is practically the basis of most special moves in Street Fighter. SEGA pads were too imprecise for me. The last thing you want to do is lose a fight because you were charging back, then pressed down forward instead of forward and end up doing a medium punch instead of a sonic boom!

    Ninetndo’s pads, on the other hand, were excellent at this kind of stuff.

    SEGA even tried to rip Nintendo’s D-pad off, like Sony has basically done, with the DC controller, but the last time I picked one up it didn’t feel anywhere near as robust, to say the least.

    I never played with the Saturn Pad. Probably due to the amount of grief the Master System, Game Gear and MegaDrive had given me over the years…

    #107 5 years ago
  108. theevilaires

    O’Connor is no Psychotext, spider, so I don’t even bother to try as much.

    But on the topic of controllers the new 360 pad is clearly a rip off of the dreamcast pad done slightly better. Like I said before I’m all up for a showdown with the best gamer on this site who matches my skills in COD4 and I’ll be more than happy to take on Reas…..I mean G1GA :P any day with his 360 pad against the king DS3.

    He is known as this site COD fanatic but I can assure you there are better players than him here also….even me. Flinch??? ….no, I laugh at the chance to be face to face with him running around a virtual map trying to best him. Its an excitement I look forward to every time I play COD.

    “seriously, hardcore titles on the Wii are having bad sales, why should developers keep making games for Wii when Move is the same and is in Next gen graphics to attract more users?”

    Indeed. Move offers a great opportunity for us to see great titles that would have otherwise been sent to die on the Wii got some much deserved exposure on a core gaming console.

    Games like Lost Winds, Okami, MadWorld.

    I also hope to see the Move being used as an alternative control option in many new games (especially shooters) instead of simply seeing games that *require* it. I don’t know how easy the tech is to implement, but that sort of thing would go a long way towards getting the Move into the hands of the core gamers, and not just the casual audience.

    Example: Stuff like the new Sam and Max would be great with the Move. Imagine that… a point and click there you actually point and click once again! *laughs*
