Kinect will beat Move says US retailer

As Kinect prepares itself for Euro launch, US store says it's in prime position to win war with Sony.

PlayStation Move or Xbox Kinect? The motion control battle between Sony and Microsoft has only just got under way, with us European gaming fanatics not even getting hold of Kinect until this week.

But that hasn’t stopped Stateside retailer Gamestop claiming that Microsoft’s hands-free effort will come out on top in the run up to Christmas. “I'd say right now Microsoft's Kinect is looking to be the winner of the two for us,” said Bob McEnzie, the store’s senior VP of merchandising and marketing.

Speaking of Kinect he added, “We're very happy with the sell through over the weekend. It has met our expectations and actually exceeded our initial forecasts." Kinect is already sold out in the States, with Microsoft revising its sales forecast from three million to five million before the festive season.

Of course, Sony will point out that its stunning early numbers in both Europe and the US, coupled with an earlier release date, have given it the edge in this latest front in the gaming wars.

What do you reckon? Can Kinect kick ass? Tell us your thoughts on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
