Those Embarrassed by Wii Will Flock to Move, Reckons Take-Two CEO

Users "graduating" to HD devices
The Wii has brought a huge number of people into gaming, from undergraduates to granddads, but many see the PlayStation Move as the next logical step: more precise and with greater graphical power behind it, it's more an evolution than a revolution. Take-Two's CEO Ben Feder spoke at a conference recently about how his teenage son is too embarrassed to play Wii games with friends, but that Move will legitimise that kind of gaming for many.
What Sony and Microsoft have really done with Kinect and Move, especially Move, is provide a bridge for guys that are used to playing the Wii system with the wand and bringing them over to a HD system.
The PS3 with Move, in my view, is the Wii HD system. I think maybe Mom isn't playing, but the kids are 'graduating,' and Microsoft and Sony have both provided a bridge to bring them over.
Whether it's the technology behind Move or line-up of games such as Killzone 3, Heavy Rain: Move Edition and Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition that's likely to lure across disgruntled Nintendo gamers, there's certainly a wealth of motion-controlled experiences lying in wait for those who make the jump.
