As the motion-controlled gaming war intensifies, one brave market analyst as hinted that Sony’s Motion Control technology is superior to Microsoft’s Project Natal.

Both systems were demoed at the recent E3 games show in North America, but now Doug Creutz, an analyst at Cowen & Co, has since told website Gamasutra that “Sony's demo was superior from a gaming perspective”.

Creutz’s opinion appears to be based solely on the E3 demos, rather than any private demonstrations he may have had behind closed doors.

However, he added that “Sony is squarely targeting the core gamer market [with Motion Control], which is what they need to be doing” and that Microsoft’s Natal is “a technological solution in search of a problem”. ®
