Microsoft and Sony are set to unleash torrents of information regarding their motion controllers next week during E3, but is anyone wanting it?
Research company OTX has used it’s tracking service – GamePlan Insights – to quiz 2,000 American gamers on whether or not they will be purchasing Natal (or is it Wave now?) or Move when they are released later this year.
Of the 2,000 polled, only 8% of the Xbox 360 users are planning on buying Natal and only 6% of PlayStation users are intending to purchase Move. Of those, only 25% are willing to pre-order.
Okay, so it’s a low representation of a massive market but it does give an indication of some people’s attitudes toward the two new pieces of technology. This seemingly small amount of interest could be attributed to several factors such as lack of information, lack of pricing and a lack of footage showing what they are actually bringing to the proverbial table.
Seeing as the research only covered a small percentage of American gamers, I thought we’d better ask you guys. European gamers.
Based on the information that you have seen and read, what are your feelings about Project Natal and PlayStation Move? Do you want? Are you getting? Are you waiting? Are you interested at all?
