MS: Kinect 'fundamentally different' from Wii

Microsoft credits Nintendo - while distancing Kinect

Microsoft's Marc Whitten has said that Kinect (formerly known as Project Natal) is "fundamentally different" from the motion control Nintendo introduced with Wii.

While crediting the Japanese firm for kicking off the motion control trend and brining new gamers into the industry, he distances it from what MS is doing now with its new Kinect device.

Whitten commented: "They have done some amazing things and brought new people to the category.

"This is fundamentally different. It's (about) my body being the controller (and) being able to communicate with just my voice to the system," he said via USA Today (who naughtily revealed Kinect's final name AND a list of its launch titles hours before Microsoft's official conference).
