May 21st, 2010 Sponge

When the holidays hit this year, PlayStation and XBox will have their FINAL battle for dominance!  Sony will put out the PlayStation Move in September of 2010 and Microsoft will put out the Project Natal in December of 2010.  Both feature ground breaking play design but which one will win your hearts (and your dollars)? Do you think that Microsoft’s new strategy for pricing the Natal at $200 is a smart one? Or is Sony going to put an end to the headstart Microsoft had and end the next-gen videogame system wars?  Why or why not?

  2. i haTe Thisz .!

  3. i think it’s not good for Microsoft.

  4. i think tat they shouldnt put it at 200dollrs cuz somepeople arwe really tight on money and thts alot of money for something tht u could buy at a flea market for way less thn tat!!!!!

  6. ie no lyke et!!!!!!!!!!!!! >=(

  7. ie no lyke et!!!!!!!!!!!!! =(

  8. ie no lyke et!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😦

  9. ie no lyke et!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😦

  10. I THINK IT IS A BAD IDEA BECAUSE PLAYSTATION3 ALREADY HAS THIS FOR AROUND $70. I AM A X-BOX 360 PERSON AND I STILL WOULD NOT BUY THE NEW X-BOX BECAUSE THE PLAYSTATION3 HAS ONE FOR $70 AND THE X-BOX HAS ONE FOR $200. IF THE X-BOX 360 COMPANY WANTS TO MAKE MONEY THEY MADE SORT OF A GOOD CHOOSE BECAUSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW THERE IS A PLAYSTATION3 OUT FOR $70.00 WOULD BUY THE X-BOX FOR $200.00. SO THOSE ARE MY REASONS WHY I WOULD BUY THE PLAYSTATION3 AND NOT THE X-BOX 360.

  11. i think that there both cool but came out already. like the will and play station.

  13. I think it is a bad idea because some people may not buy them because it cost to much or they dont have no money. Also that playstation 3 and xbox 360, playstation 3 is around 70 dallors and xbox 360 is around 120 dallors so people may have it now but people will not get it

  14. I think its a bad idea because everyone like their own type of game, like diffreent types of game consoles. I like the wii, ps3, ps2, and the little hand-held games but people all have their own likes and dislikes about a game.

  16. I dont really care. I dont play all the games systems. Ummm yea i think the stuff is good though. They are fun but you can get fat. I think it is bas because playstation already has something out. But it is there choice.

  17. I think it is bad for Microsoft

  18. I think this is a “pety” thing in my opinion. It’s sad that those 2 companies are trying to copy the wii. The wii really killed them if both are trying to copy this. Microsoft in my opinion can’t make video game systems. The xbox 360 has one of the worst failing rate. Especially after all that crap of the “red ring of death”. Sony makes good games but there new PS3 systems have a high failing rate not as much as xbox but it’s high. To me this is just going to make ninteindo much more angry.

  19. Either way i look at it i dont care. Also i hope playsation beats microsoft. Because i like playsation better. My opinon is that either one of them can do what they want. But like I said i hope playsation wins.

  20. PLAY STATION IS JUST COPYING WII BUT THAT THING FOR THE XBOX 360 IS PRETTY COOL

  21. I THINK IT IS A BAD IDEA BECAUSE, NOT MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE MONEY. AS IT IS PEOPLE ARE ALREADY LOW ON MONEY BECAUSE, THEY ARE GETTING LAID OFF. sO PEOPLE SHOULD JUST KEEP THE PRICE THE SAME. AND THE MONEY PEOPLE DO HAVE WOULD END UP GOING TOWARDS THE TECHNOLOGY.

  22. Although I own a PlayStation 3, I believe that with this…Microsoft will take the way with their “Project Natal” concept. This is because it gives users a more fully blown out interface that will also interact with their movements and other things completely without using any sort of controller (unlike the PS3). Just as people are saying…this may very well put an end to the “Console War” between the two companies.

  23. I think that this is a bad idea. People don’t really have the money for this stuff.

  24. I think it is good for micorsoft. I think it good for micorsoft because it only cost 200 dollars so more people will buy it because it cheap so it is good for microsoft and bad for playstation. It bad for playstation because because nobody will buy there system.

  25. PlayStation 3 because it dose a lot more things and it is a lot more cooler and it can play blue-ray and some of them can play ps2 games.

  26. I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE ITS A LOWER PRICE AND MOSTLY EVERY ONE WILL BE ABLE TO BUY IT.

  27. I THINK IT IS A BAD IDEA BECAUSE PLAYSTATION3 ALREADY HAS THIS FOR AROUND $70. i Think itsz noT qood for micRosofT To puT iT aT $200 because foR one sony is aLReady beaT Them by puTTinq iT ouT a monTh eaRLy. I think this is a “pety” thing in my opinion. It’s sad that those 2 companies are trying to copy the wii.

  29. I THANK THAT play station move is just a redisiend wii. but natle is better because you dont need a controler. its the first controler free game. I choose the nattle. mainly because you dont need a controler.

  30. i think those game wars are getting out of hand. microsoft and sony has been going head to head for a long time. i think they are doing a good idea because they’re giving the stuff that the fans want. i like the other things that they made before this time. i would spend my money for this new kind of stuff.

  31. project natal is better. you can do more stuff. it cost less only 200 dollar. they can experiance it. its cool but there coping the eyetoy.

  32. ps2 because they all ready had the sensore. the means that the ps2 is better. they have the eyetoy thats does the same thing. i want an eyetoy. the ps2 is the best.

  33. i think that PLAYSTATION WILL KICK XBOX ALL THE WAY TO MARS. because xbox copyed ps2 natal like tech. it is not new. playstationis much better. playstation rules.

  34. well i relly dont vare bout this styuff! neather one of these will win my heart or my money so i really dont care what they do with it! i dont think it was smart to price it at 200 dollars butt then agen if you think about it its cheeap butt no matter what i dont care so yeh! what happens with both of them is what happens so bye! 🙂

  35. I do not know which one will win. If the games are good and new on one that really ups the possibility of a winning. The battle could go on for years more. Or a tie could call a truce. Which would mean less new technology soon. But if there is a winner companies will continue to try hard to push the other to last.

  36. i rilly do not now what to do because this stufe is good and alote of people will buy it.so if i buy it the people will get my mouny.it lookes like fun but i rilly have to save up mouny to buy it.so what is next that they are going to bring out now. i hop it is somthing that is rilly good.

  37. I THINK THAT THE NATAL XBOX WILL BE A BIGGER HIT. MOSTLY BECAUSE THE PLAYSTATION THING IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE THAT HAVE THE WII ARE USED TO. BUT THE NATAL XBOX, IS DIFFERENT, MOSTLY BECAUSE IT DOESNT HAVE A CONTROLER. YOU ONLY USE YOUR BODY TO CONTROL THE GAME. I THINK THAT IS WAY COOLER, AND WILL GET MORE MONEY THAN THE USUAL GAMES.

  38. I think that the wars will never end. I think that they will go on forever and keep getting better. I also think that if the x-box company wants to make money they will lower there price to an affordable range. See if playstation’s price is like 100-150 doller’s there most likely to be bought. now if x-box put’s there price about the same there is going to be a big battle. This is what I think.

  39. scene most people have an XBOX most people will like the Natal because you do not need a controller, it is voice commanded, and it seems really cool with any games

  40. YES CAUSE IT WILL WANT PEOPLE TO BUY IT PLUS XBOX NEEDS TO COME OUT WITH MORE GAMES AND OTHER STUFF LIKE THAT

  41. i think that the natal XBOX will be a batta hit cuz of what it can do. tha PLAYSTATIONmove will sell more first cuz it comes out first but once tha natal XBOX comes out lots of peolpe are gana buy and i think its oka to cost like $200 cuz u dont need controllers like tha wii and ps3 and it be like ur really in tha game! so i would wana get tha natal XBOX!

  42. I have always like playstaion’s better than x box i hate xbox. ihave got playstation 1’2’and 3 and i probaly will get the new thin you showed us for the sponge.

  43. I think it is a bad idea. I think this because there already beating them by putting it out a month earlier. Besides its just going to cost more money and be expensive! I don’t really care about video games. I don’t play x-box or play station. But I think it is a stupid idea!
