SCEA Prez Jack Tretton Compares Natal to Eye-Toy

O it’s on.  It’s on like Donkey Kong…  Or a Chinese counter-strike match.

During an interview with Gametrailers TV, Sony Computer Entertainment of America president Jack Tretton went on the offensive promoting the Playstation Move over other motion-based gaming.  When asked how he felt about the inevitable competition between Natal and Move since both are set to launch this fall, Tretton said; “I think ultimately [the Move] is next generation gaming…  If you really want to get involved in playing with a camera I suggest you go out and buy a $99 PlayStation 2 and play some of the great technology we invented eight years ago”.


Though the comparison between the Natal and the Eye Toy makes perfect sense, seeing as they both use motion-capture recorded by a camera, it seems a bit hypocritical calling Natal a rip-off when Move is so derivative of the Wii.  Regardless, it looks like the motion-control war is going to get ugly.
