Survey: Gamers more aware of Move than Natal
Posted on June 11, 2010 by Nick

With both Microsoft's Project Natal and Sony's PlayStation Move scheduled to be fully unveiled at next weeks E3 conference, the stage has been set between the two hardware manufacturers to see which one can woo the lucrative casual market.

While the answer to that question is still unclear, a new survey conducted by the Nielsen company has determined that gamers are more aware of Move. According to the survey, 23 percent of gamers are aware of the PlayStation Move, while only 21 percent know what Natal is.

Awareness for both motion control systems is up considerably among the respective system's owners, with 42 percent of PlayStation 3 owners claiming they are familiar with Move and 39 percent of Xbox owners cognizant of Natal.

Gamers also tend to think PlayStation Move will be less expensive than Natal. According to the survey, most gamers think PlayStation Move will cost between $26 and $75, while 44 percent of gamers think Natal will be $76 or more.

While both consoles are selling pretty evenly thus far in 2010, analysts Michael Pachter and Jesse Divnich told us in an interview in February that motion controllers may determine the best-selling HD system for the year.
