At Tokyo Game Show 2009, Microsoft and Sony touted their upcoming motion controllers in different ways. Sony actually showed off working games at itsTGS press conference. Resident Evil 5 and LittleBigPlanet were demonstrated on stage. While it was only two games, it was an important showing for two reasons. First, it showed real-world applications of Sony's motion controls on existing products. Secondly, Sony showed that it will have first-party and third-party support.



Microsoft, on the other hand, issued a press release, confirming support from several major publishers and developers. It also held a Natal panel featuring Capcom’s Keiji Inafune, Sega’s Toshihiro Nagoshi, and Konami’s Hideo Kojima . From what I understand, the panel was more about concepts than actual products (it's hard to tell since it was in Japanese and the translation was lacking). Still, Microsoft supported its Natal initiative with star power and big names.

In the battle of wave motion cannons controllers, who do you think did the better job at TGS 2009? Do you like what Sony did, with real-world demonstrations and actual games? Or do you prefer Microsoft's broad support and star-studded panel? Do you prefer actuality or potentiality? The motion-control skirmish (a subsection of the console wars) will be interesting to watch in 2010. For this round, I want to know which company used TGS more effectively, in your opinion.
