Wink I predict they will both fail!

Analyst backs Microsoft’s Natal to beat Sony’s Arc

I am yet to see a stand alone peripheral get more than a 5% to 10% install rate with console owners and unless these "changes to the face of gaming" are anything more than cosmetic, they will fall in a big heap.

You can have the best peripheral idea in the world, but if the AAA games are not there to back it up, wiggling in front of the TV will become to much like hard work.

I can tell how old my Wii is by cutting it in half and counting the stratas of dust rings (Sorry Kiz ... don't hate me )

That's a similar problem with the Wii Motion Plus at the moment. It supports too few titles that it will probably be the last real extension peripheral for the current lifespan of the Wii hardware. Let me see there's Wii Sports Resort....Ummm....Urr...Oh yeah Red Steel 2 and that's about it really.
We've seen it all before, when a new hardware component is brought out and it's not supported by game companies it usually a major fizzer.

So you blokes wouldn't recommend a Wii?
I was thinking about getting one for my kids. It sounded like a fair swap...

1) LOL at new avatar! Outstanding!

2) Great for young kids, but my 10 year old is already over the Wii.

Couple of years ago, my now-15yo's mother bought him and his sister (these 2 don't live with me) a Wii For Christmas. This was around the same time I bought him a slim PS2 for his birthday.
Guess which one they play the most

Given that my now-4 and 5-year-olds quite happily play Lego Batman/Indy/SW and LBP on the PS3, I don't think a Wii will be necessary. They were *stoked* on the weekend 'cos I bought the LBP Pirates of the Caribbean DLC.

They're anxiously waiting (asking, purging...) for Lego Harry Potter. It's due out this month.

Ok now you need a Wii.

If we hear, "Can't play MAG, kids have the PS3" there will be tears! (Mostly mine, but tears none the less!)

I use my wii for a few exclusive niche titles, which are fantastic, but that only comprises about half a dozen games total.
