I don't know if that'll do them any good.

[USER=71]@Naiwen[/USER] it will allow them to directly compete with the Kinect, and allows for a closer competition. This allows Sony a smart move to push into games that gave Xbox the niche - making the market share smaller. In that sense, I feel that the move is smart, however Sony needs to REALLY push next-generation and unique ideas in my eyes, to give them the "wow, look at that!" that they need in order to drag the XBox users across.

As well as that, I feel that if one of them were able to reduce the price (even just a little) then this would give them a huge advantage! :)
