Nintendo: Microsoft and Sony are playing 'Follow the Leader'

A new era of motion control gaming kicks of tomorrow, November 4th of 2010, as Microsoft releases its Kinect system. Kinect takes a novel new approach to motion-controlled video gaming by eliminating handheld controllers altogether and instead relying on the player's body to literally become the controller. Roughly a month ago, rival company Sony released its own motion control system in what's known as PlayStation Move, which uses a more conventional handheld controller scheme coupled with a small video camera that tracks the movements of players and the PS Move controllers.

Both of these, however, had been beaten to the punch by Nintendo which made the gamble with a fully motion-controlled home gaming console when the Wii was released on November 19th of 2006 -- a fact that Nintendo isn't shy to point out.

The story is too old to be commented.

But then again, the whole industry is about them sharing, copying and competing.

thats how the industry works... companies picks up what is the best (what is selling) and place it to own devices.
another great example is the mobile phones industry.
