    I don't own either but have played both and while fun for a short while, I didn't feel they were worth the cost.

    I got the Move as part of a bundle when I had to replace my old PS3. Playing Sports Champions with it was okay but the novelty wears out fast. Sony never did widely support it. Of the games that do support it, (Killzone 3, Okami) I find it's just easier to use the controller. I honestly can't remember the last time I used it. It's been months.

    Half the battle is the room I have my PS3 in is too small. Hate having to drag the camera out too. I'd leave it permanently plugged in if Sony had the good sense to put a USB port on the back, so the wire wasn't always dangling.

    I voted "regularly", because my wife uses the Kinect 3 or 4 times a week for exercise stuff. I use it only occasionally.

    I bought a Kinect a couple of weeks ago for the wife, but I seem to be the only one using it (she's played the dance game once).

    It's actually pretty cool and fun. I used the Nike+ Fuel trainer for the first time on Saturday and it was very impressive. Still sore from it actually.

    Question: does anyone know the cheapest way to get the old Dance Central songs (from part 1 & 2) into our Dance Central 3? If I buy an eBay digital download, can I get the old songs that way?

    Have move. LOVED it for heavy rain. Sports championships is good fun for get togethers, but I never play it alone. Bought sorcery for like 8 bucks haven't had a chance to play yet.

    Basically it's still a pretty small, but enjoyable, niche.

    We have a Kinect that me and my daughter used sometimes, but I moved a month ago and we haven't hooked it back up yet. I am interested to try using it with Skyrim though for the voice commands.

    My Kinect turns on everytime the Xbox is used, but I ignore it. It probably gets used a little more than the Wii, which means never.

    I pretty much expected these results :)

    I've only tried them out at bestbuy, but kinect seemed unacceptably unresponsive (I can see it may be worth having for voice commands, though of course if MS cared these could be built into the headset, too, for games), and move was better but I don't really hear much about it.

    I got the Sharpshooter bundle with Socom 4 the day before PSN went down for months. I used the Move once and it collected dust until I ebayed it. Motion controls are far too imprecise.

    sports championships is what i play often. Me and my kids love the frisbee golf.

    i am dispointed with the amount of good games out for the move.


    My kids want the kinect now since there seems to be more for it (we don't have a XBOX)

    I barely even use the ps3 anymore, and haven't touched the Move. Just have the 2 move controllers, no nunchuck things. I used it for sports champions which was fun for a little while but now it sits. Sports Champions 2 is out soon IIRC and that might be fun again for a bit. If they add some online MP aspect it might actually be fun for a while.

    That said, I recently got a Wii because walmart had them for $90 new and I didn't realize how imprecise the Wii was until using the Move for a while. The Move is IMO a pretty solid motion controller and could have done well with software support. It's a damn shame it went to waste though.

    Well there are far more Move compatible games. Kinect has dried up considerably since last year. A couple of big budget flops like Star Wars and Steel Battalions have killed there momentum.

    Even racing games like NFS are Move compatible now since they released the wheel. All non-Move racing games work too.

    Our Kinect has seen very little use... even for OS features... since after we first bought it and the "Newness" wore off...

    From time to time my nephews will ask to play a Kinect Game like Adventures.. but even that is rather rare

    This is why I've always absolutely hated that console. Its controls are ghastly in the extreme, it's like being piss drunk and moving in jello with a time lapse. I can't even understand how people put up with it.

    I don't play FPS on console due to lack of kb/mouse support. But I am very curious to play with move on that game, Resistance 3 & Socom.

    Most alluring on PS3 is the Resident Evil Chronicles HD remake.
    I'm a fan of on rail shooters, soon as I can get around to it, I plan to check out that selection of games as well.
