While next week at E3 both Sony and Microsoft will be devoting plenty of time to their upcoming motion controllers, it seems the general public isn't really interested.
According to a study done by Research firm OTX, less than 10% of the console market is interested in buying either motion controller:
Research firm OTX's U.S. tracking study GamePlan Insights polled a group of 2,000 gamers between May 23 and June 5, 2010, and found that 8 percent of the Xbox 360 market intends to buy Natal, and 6 percent of the PlayStation 3 market intends to purchase Move.
Of the people that are already planning on buying Natal and Move, 25 percent plan to preorder the controllers.
Both companies shouldn't worry too much yet though, as it seems that the low percentages are mostly due to lack of information and awareness which should be fixed after E3:
The GamePlan Insights study also said that 15 percent of the Xbox 360 market is aware of Natal, while the same percentage of the PS3 market is aware of the Move.
Still... only 6% of PS3 owners interested in Move and 8% of X360 owners in Natal? Hardly impressive for new hardware that's supposed to prolong the lifespan of either console.
