You realize that "hardcore" gamers are only a small piece of the market right?
Quite the opposite really, in terms of gamers in general in connection with motion gaming.
Saving the $100 is far more important.
People on the fence about which console are going to go "Why is this one $100 cheaper?" "Because it doesn't come with the Kinect/Eye toy." "Oh, well what does that do?" "Facial recognition and some voice commands" "Oh, no thanks, rather save the $100 and just play games".
That's your casual consumer walking into walmart to buy a system with a friend not knowing much about either console.
You can fight it and argue it all you want, but motion gaming does not have a future on console, and sure as frick not on PC.
If motion gaming was something gamers actually wanted it wouldn't have been a shitshow on current gen that didn't sell for shit, and it would have numerous products from companies for PC's.
I would love to go to some huge PC gaming board and create a poll "Do you want a Kinect or Eye for PC?" Would be a complete shite show and you know it.
You're buying an Eye/Kinect for the voice commands more than anything else by a mile, and to a hardcore gamer, or casual gamer, is that worth an additional $100? 80% would say no.
