No change, why buy either when I already have a wii. Thats the general idea of all my friends and people I communicate with.

I still stand by my prediction that Move will fail purely based on the fact that core gamers are not interested and from a casual gamers perspective, its exactly the same as Wii so there is no incentive to buy it. Kinect on the other hand is a different take on motion gaming.

Pretty much this, except I don't think casuals will buy either, casuales will see Kinect as eye toy 2.0 when their are already 10 million eye toys out their. Consols shouldn't launch motion sensitive device during the middle of its life.

50/50 in my eyes.
Kinect will succeed because of a new approach to motion gaming
Kinect will fail because the Wii is the cheaper approach and casuals always look at the starting price.
Move will succeed because Sony is focusing on a untapped group of motion controls fans (Hardcore Motion fans), while M$ and Ninty are focusing on the same group. (Casual Motion fans)
Move will fail because of the unknown amount of actual (Hardcore Motion fans)
Nintendo in my eyes, will just sit back and relax and still be able to garner up sales because of the cheap price.

Neither Kinect or Move is launching with anything remotely close to a killer app so I doubt anything will change at all.

I wouldn't make the assumption if I didn't have a large number of people's opinions.

I think there really wont be a big change, cause mostly everyone already has a Wii, and thats good enough for them.

So I am wrong to make assumptions based on evidense I get from day-to-day life.

I'm making another assumption here but I would think its safe to say that the majority of your friends are not the audience the Kinect is really aimed at. My experiences tell me otherwise, people seem rather excited for Kinect motion controls.

Thats your assumption and I respect your opinion but to be told wrong based on my experiance is flatout ignorance.
