PlayStation Move “Quite Good Actually”

playstation-move-controller

Videos of leaked PlayStation Move gameplay purport to show that the controller is not a stultifying Wiimote knock-off after all:

Despite initial doubts that Sony’s offering was a cheap rip-off of the Wii whilst only Microsoft had anything original to offer, it is beginning to seem that Kinect has significant problems, whilst the Move may yet avoid failed controller hell.

    It seems better than a Wiimote, for sure. But we'll see have to see if it isn't still just a gimmick that wears out in a few months.

    I think people here are forgetting one very important thing though.

    Is it probably going to be better then the Wii-mote? Most likely. But is it because Sony is just better then Nintendo? Not a chance in hell.

    The Wii came out...how long ago? And the PS move came out just now? Technologies advance overtime. I'd be dissappointed if they didn't make it better then the Wii-mote. The Wii came out years ago, so anything that rips it off better be better then the Wii to some extent.

    If Nintendo decided to reinvent the Wii with today's technology, they'd probably end up with something along PSMove's ability, a little better or a little worse.

    On a technical level, Move is more Kinect than Wii - it's webcam visual tracking software, plus the sort of motion sensing hardware that's in the Sixaxis.

    I'll stand by my predictions that it'll track more accurately than the Wii, in a larger area (instead of going dead if you point off screen) but may suffer rotational drift over time, which they will probably recalibrate much like the MotionPlus, by going "level... start!" and recentering it when the player's about to play.

    Now the real question is will the software FOR it suck? I want Child of Eden... but if there's nothing else, I'll just play CoE with a controller.

    Yeah. At least in the Wii's case, the system comes with the motion tracking non-controller and the MotionPlus, and you have to pay extra for the real controller to properly play (some) games.

    In Sony's and Microsoft's world, people have to spend a good hundred squids for the privilege of flinging around their arms to experience long-term fatigue.

    That's sooo not gonna fly...

    AnonAnon, here,

    Well, if you can't teach them through words, let them learn by experience...
    That aside, I don't think many people will learn because not many have the intention to think whilst they play.

    I was thinking about picking it up to play good old Time Crisis at home, where I reminisce back when I played it in arcades. But when I look back at videos posted on Youtube of the game in action, I think I must've been partly retarded when I thought at the time "THIS GAME, THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER". Terribad script, little to no logic, and just god awful voice acting. I don't see Playstation Move in anytime having me as a potential buyer.

    The worst of the three is kenect.
    X-box Really should stick to making up their own shit,sony can make good products whether or not adhering to a previous idea,their fualts line up with game quality.Which isnt realy bad but it can be noticed.

    And lets face it nintendo owns this field.Gaming is in their blood.The other two are hardware junkies not so much gamers.So its no real surprise to me that the list is more like this.

    Nintendo-Original gamers,Their hardware can sometimes be faulty but they wil eventually invent real virtual reality.

    Sony-Hardware junkies,Their hardwre is always top notch(sept for eyetoy) They juwst have to hope the developers fallow up their successful creation with good and enjoyable games.Like with the psone and 2

    X-box-The american,They can be really good in the third party area.The first X-box had an odd controller(specificaly in the location of the white and black buttons)
    But over all their even and are pretty good at coming up with original ways to make something badass in a pseudo-macho way.

    In the end they all have fualts just nintendo is a master of controlling thiers.

    It all comes down to what they make with that controller, because those mini games looked very boring.

    Jesus fuck is there one post here that does NOT ridicule the controller for its design?

    "ZOMG IT IS NOW CALLED THE WII HAHAHA SOUNDS LIKE WEE-WEE HAHAHAHA PENIS"

    I dunno, I never really liked the Wii remote and I doubt I'll like Move any better. Plus I don't see what Sony and Mircosoft are going to accomplish by this other then trying to cash in on the flood of casual gamers the Wii produced.

    i love the wii mote :D since it looks cool and it's actually fun(no more heroes,re4,metroid prime trilogy and so on) hopefully developers will include the move in the right games like demon souls, resident evil 5, no more heroes paradise and so on.

    I want the opportunity to play games that require this AND games that require normal controllers?

    I find them both fun and both of them have a time and place and limitations of their own. :/

    Didn't you see the original introduction to the PS Move? They had the typical party games, but also the FPS shooter (forgot which) with the dude sitting on the couch. He wasn't moving, or waving his hands around. It didn't even look like he was using a Move controller.

    Maybe they work for Sony, seeing as how he was not willing to say how he got his stuff. I wonder if he's Kevin Butler's son... Kevin Butler's dumb stupid and non-funny black sheep son.

    It's people like you that make fanboys look bad. I mean fanboys are just morons, but guys like you are worse. You make a blanket statement that one company produces GOOD stuff and another doesn't. That is what ignorance is. You either really believe what you say, and if you do then I feel sorry for you. OR.... You make these statements because you are a fanboys fanboy. In either case don't reproduce.

    Sony makes good stuff
    MS makes good stuff
    nintendo makes good stuff
    AND VICE VERSA.
