Microsoft Corp. is also stealing the limelight with its newest motion control system, called Kinect, for the firm's Xbox 360 game console. The system goes on sale in November. Unlike Wii and PS Move, the Kinect sensor system for the Xbox 360 machine doesn't require a hand-held controller. A camera, depth sensor and multiarray microphone set up in front of the users detect the movements and location of the players, and match the characters' actions in the video game.
"I enjoyed playing, but I think the Wii is better" at detecting movements, said Yusuke, a 23-year-old man from Tokyo who only gave his given name. He said the Kinect seemed to have trouble keeping up with fast movements. Game makers are also trying to take advantage of the growing popularity of 3-D TVs. Sony, tapping the powerful graphic performance of its PlayStation 3 and technologies for 3-D televisions, is an industry leader in developing the 3-D video game market. Sony is showing off several 3-D titles for visitors to try.
