PSXE Poll Update: Move Won't Gain Much Traction Next Gen
Some believe that motion sensing will become more advanced in the next generation. As a result, devices like PlayStation Move will become more popular.
But that's not what the majority of our readers think. While a great many do expect Move to do better when the PlayStation 4 arrives, most think Sony's motion-sensing system won't gain much traction. They say popularity will stay about the same.
Personally, I'm surprised at how many Move units Sony has sold. It's not a bad mechanic; it just lacks any top-notch AAA software. And it also seems as if Sony has stopped trying to produce that one killer app for the Move. Plenty of games these days are Move compatible but that's typically just an option, as the titles aren't clearly made for the peripheral. I can't decide if Sony should just try harder, or simply not bother. I've never cared about Move and I don't think I would in the future, no matter how advanced it got. But others may feel differently.
This week, we look to the future. Specifically, we wonder how Sony will fare in the PlayStation marketing realm in the next generation. Promoting their first-party titles has been an issue for the company in the past, and many say Sony needs to do a lot more. Do you think Sony will step up their marketing game when the PS4 hits? Or will we still have difficulty finding an Uncharted 4 commercial?
