Take-Two: PlayStation Move is ‘Wii HD’

Are you one of those people gagging for an HD Wii? According to publisher Take-Two, the wait is almost over, since Sony has us covered!

“What Sony and Microsoft have really done with Kinect and Move, especially Move, is provide a bridge for guys that are used to playing the Wii system with the wand and bringing them over to a HD system,” says CEO Ben Feder. “The PS3 with Move, in my view, is the Wii HD system. I think maybe mom isn’t playing, but the kids are graduating, and Microsoft and Sony have both provided a bridge to bring them over.”

I disagree with that statement, mostly for the fact that people wanted an HD Wii to see better looking versions of Nintendo franchises. Acting like Move meets the demand for an HD Wii represents a sad attitude I’ve noticed in the industry — the attitude that seems to think copying hardware is enough. 

Software is what is important, and when Move gets experiences that match Super Mario Galaxy and The Legend of Zelda or even Kirby’s Epic Yarn, then we can call it the Wii HD.
