I already own a Wii, what does the Move provide that the Wii doesn't?

Accuracy maybe, and even then it may be un-needed for gaming. Games though? Come on Magus, I know you're a sony fan and all but can you really honestly say the handful of move games announced are better than the Wii's library of hundereds of games, some of which have won awards for game of the year, ect.?

For my gaming needs? Yes. Sorry but Zelda on the Wii has been lackluster, Im not a big mario fan either. My Wii has been gathering dust.

And this is a handful of games for launch, it will be better in a year. I mean Sorcery looked awesome better then any Wii game I have seen yet. I will get a Move just for it if I don't have one by its release.

In general the library seems more robust for Move over the Wii. It seems to offer games for everyone versus how the Wii is mainly aimed for casual/kids.

There is no "library" on the move, yet. Its just a handful, not to mention you have to pay extra for the move in the first place.

I doubt it. I would guess the move wand is just a wii mote without the the pendulum-based tracker in the Motion Plus addon. It uses visual tracking through the wonder lollipop ball. I guess I'm too old for lollipops.

Visual tracking simply can't be as accurate, but it can do things you can't with a wiimote, obviously. Admittedly, the Motion Plus is an addon you have to buy/bundle with games too though, its just exponentially cheaper than Move/Kinect.

And? Tell us everything you didn't like about it.

Inquiring minds would also like to know your girl friends impressions of it.

My GF loved it (she played Dance Central), I other the hand found it boring... but that's because I don't care about dancing, or the stupid mini games they had on show.

So I might have to buy it if the girl decides she wants it at launch.

Sorry but I still don't see this being more then a party thing, I can't see any decent games come from this.

Come on. You would be paying 210 bucks so your girlfriend could play that ONE game? Just tell her to look up Youtube videos of the songs on your TV and she can get the exact same experience.
