Pachter: Project Natal and PlayStation Motion Controller won’t topple Wii

Sony and Microsoft unveil new motion-based controls at this year’s E3, revealing a new controller that works with the PS Eye and Project Natal, respectively. Nintendo has been doing it since late 2006, but this year, both Sony and Microsoft have hopped on the motion controller bandwagon. Games analyst Michael Pachter told Edge that despite these new product announcements, Nintendo really has nothing to worry about.

“We do not expect either to displace Nintendo’s Wii from its leadership position,” Pachter said. He went on further to say that Microsoft’s Natal is really only aimed toward interface improvement, and that Sony’s new controller is simply “Wii-nis envy,” solidifying his company’s opinion that the Wii will come out on top for this console cycle.
