Nintendo of America's beefburger boss, Reggie Fils-Aime, has declared that if you have a Wii, you don't really have any motivation to drop another few hundred bucks on a PS3 with PlayStation Move. Doesn't sound like Nintendo's threatened at all by the Sony Wiimote. 

"So I’m a consumer and I’m having a great experience with my Wii," declares Reggie. "And we know that’s the case – we look at the software that’s being purchased. Consumers love the Wii. What’s going to motivate them to spend minimally $300 for a new [PS3] system, plus minimally $100 for the Move motion bundle?

"So [as a consumer] now I’m into this for $400 and I still have to spend money on software. What’s going to motivate me to do that?"

I have to make Reggie right on this. I have a Wii. I bought a PS3 because it provided a different experience to the Wii. Why should I be excited to hear that Sony is now just duplicating the Wii's experience? Sony should never have tried to copy Nintendo. Rather, it should have put some real support behind the PlayStation Eye. That's at least a unique experience, and something Sony had in place long before Project Natal. Still, I should be used to Sony dropping the ball by now.
