PlayStation Move vs WiiMote

tabble-tennis-by-takeya-masami

The PlayStation Move controller may be a flagrant copy of the Wii’s WiiMote, but ping-pong aficionados playing both consoles side-by-side have compared the two and found Sony’s imitation does actually deliver a rather upgraded experience.

“Wii Sports” vs “Sports Champions”:

The “waggle test” – the motion sensing of the Wii is sufficiently crude that in some games little more than the illusion of control is offered, as exemplified by the finding that waggling the Wii’s controller randomly from side to side assures victory thanks to some rather generous assistance from the console itself… the Move controller is however a different story:

All that remains to be seen is how Kinect performs under similar conditions.

    All i want for Move Compatible games is No More Heroes 2 Paradise, Resident Evil 5, Demon Souls, Monster Hunter PS3, Beat-em Up Games(still waiting for a God Hand Sequel), FPS Games(like Resistance 3).

    i really like the wiimote design though, especially it has built in speakers sadly they took away the feature from no more hereos 2.

    Can't we just let motion sensing games stay where they belong.. in the arcade?

    yes id rather just sit on my fat ass and use a controller.

    In reality i could care less if they make these products or games, i'm sure lots of people like them. As long as it doesn't become forced upon me to use them ill be fine.

    so with the PS3 move, the game controlls you

    but with the wii, you controll the game

    is that it?

    The wii wagling is far from what Nintendo likes to pretend it is but many of their games do give up functionality and "assist" the player a lot too.

    wrap up

    1- Move offers more, its improved!
    2- Wii doesnt you did all you could, just some blockbusters to wait now

    3- Move is seen by a casual consumer perspective like a rip off
    4- Wii was the first, came and took the market place. Kicked Ass! Impossible to deny.

    4- Final Fantasy 5 and 6 beat 12 and 13, so obviously the eye toy can look better than kinect, but lets wait on that
    5- "The improved ps2" did what Sony coudnt at the time plus the gimmick that by itself is irrelevant if people buy it and enjoy it

    6- There shouldnt be any discussion at all, Wii kicked ass, ps3 didnt. Move comes out to catch the casual market. Casual market is already owned

    7- "Move" on * teheee i make a pun i did i

    Sounds like your trying to convince yourself the Wii is better than it actually is.

    Also, is it so wrong for another company to use motion controls other than Nintendo. Not to mention PS2 had the first successful motion control device that sold millions. The PSEye. The Power Glove was a joke so don't use that.

    the wii did it first on a large scale

    doing it first doesnt really matter

    doing it first successfully on a large scale (like...idk...only having that kind of controller) matters

    I got a Move and it's 150x better than my WII. The WII is a kids toy compared to the MOVE. Simple as that. People that post negative comments on the MOVE obviously don't own one or they'd actually talk some sense. You only have to stand back far enough that you don't smack your TV. I don't know what people are bitching about.
    It's not "perfect" but it's 96% perfect and as close as any hardware is capable of delivering for under $100. The disc with the bundle has enough proof on it to shut up detractors and games next year are going to explode with motion control I'm 100% sure. I got a 360 also so I'm not a fanboi of any system but you can't deny that the MOVE is going to be impossible to beat. It's just a fact of reality.

    I owe move too, and Im a bit disappointed with move.
    Maybe is a novelty for the majority of ps3 users, but playing the disc bundle and the sense of deja vu is horrid, is like go back to 4 years ago but in HD, so I dont feel it like "it changes everything", feels more like another WAGGLE game. Did you tried wiimotion plus? the sense is almost the same 1:1

    No, it's a Move fan raving about their love for a Sony-made copy of the Wii Motion Plus with a flashing bulb on the end and toting its over-rated glory as a "fact" when it's clearly not.

    Everything that the Move does, the Wii Motion Plus does just as well.

    I own both and haven't seen a single difference in response quality. Because there isn't one.

    What really matters is the quality of the games used on each respective system.
    If you had focused on that area and started pointing out the fact that the Wii needs to dump the shovel-ware being thrown onto it and start focusing more on the quality titles people WANT on the system, you'd have had a fair point.
    But you didn't.
    So you don't.
    Try again when you've widened your narrow PoV.
    You don't have to be a Sony fan-boy to be a narrow-minded Wii-Hater.

    WHat you ALL have to realize is that this site has crawled up SONY's ass soooooooo far that I'm surtprised that they say anything bad about sony at all.... oohh wait they dont LOL. But anyway good luck trying to get sony's attention while the fact remains that a 8ms delay is far long that a 2ms delay which is what the nintendo wii has.

    Sorry to be the person with bad news but BOTH Sony AND Microsoft are still a few years behind nintendo when it comes to actual sensing devices. The move (although great) is basically a copy off of all of the stuff nintendo couldn't patent then new software was written in to cover up where there were holes. As for play, once you get a move you'll realize how bad a 2ms response time is when your character not only doesn't represent you on the screen but moves about .5 seconds slower making it almost impossible to play su7ch games as fighting and FPS's.

    Nobody ever seems to mention how far you have to stand away from your T.V. for the PS Move camera to be able to see your entire swings. Thats a big draw back and every review I watched just glanced over the issue. When I first tried the move at this years TGS that was the first thing i noticed. Just look at the videos posted, theres a reason why the PS move videos always have a second window to show the player.

    XD My my, so much love in here from all the Move-tards and Wii-tards.

    Established fact; Sony pulled a shameless poser move that works slightly better than a Wii-mote WITHOUT Motion Plus, while adding a plastic light-bulb to flash and distract you to the end of it.

    When the next Nintendo console comes around[Not the 3DS; that's already breaking records for awesome], it will probably match up to, if not beat, what the Move has done in terms of tech specs. Whether or not they'll act as shamelessly as Sony did and copy looks on top of everything else is still up for debate, but let's not put it beyond them.

    Then Sony will come around and pull off the same thing.
    Then Nintendo will do it.
    Back and forth for the entirety of their company's respective lives.

    Honestly, the industry thrives off of people taking ideas away from each other, altering them slightly, then re-marketing them.
    I mean, take a look at Call of Duty VS Modern Warfare debates that have been flying around lately for an example.XD

    Nothing's gonna change about how shameless all three companies are going to act in the future, so we all might as well just go with the flow by picking what suits us instead of arguing about it incessantly over the net.

    After all, as the saying goes,
    "Arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics; even if you win, you're still retarded."

    I work in the games industry and have it on good information that when put into practice the wii's system is more accurate (or at the lest identical in that respect) and more reliable (less prone to decalibration). when it comes down to it though, the difference is actualy very small. PR and misinfomed fanboys can do a lot.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but in the 2nd video they dont even try to swing the move controller like they did with the wii mote to show that it in fact wouldnt register the same. Like..show that you would indeed mess up if you didnt do accurate full arm movements on the move.

    Also in the 3rd video I noticed that they only show the wii mote and the tv at the same time...but when it came to the move, they only showed the tv and didnt let you see the controller movement to game sync..hrmmm

    They should make these comparison demonstration videos show things equally. =>_<;=

    Using these videos to compare the games is fine, but to use them to compare the accuracy of the controllers when Wii Sports is obviously dumbed down to be a family game is retarded.

    It's not as dumbed down.

    The point is winning at Wii Sports by waggling back and forth is not because of the Wiimote's limitation, so it's stupid to treat it as such.

    You know what else was released years later? Kinect.

    EyeToy was released in 2004.
    Kinect was released in 2010.

    Which one is better? It's definitely not the "newer" one.

    Sure you're not confusing EyeToy with Playstation Eye? 'cause there's a significant difference, i have no doubt that kinect, shitty as it may be at what it's trying to do, is better as a straight up camera than an EyeToy.

    And in the same amount of time Nintendo could make something even better than this...few more years past, Sony beats, that, and so on...

    If all you have to do to win Wii Ping Pong on it's hardest setting is sit there and wiggle the wiimote back and forth, what in God's name makes that superior. Get off Nintendo's dick.

    And, for all those that have been saying that Sony is just copying Nintendo with motion control, please do your research. Sony was researching/developing the technology that would eventually become the Move controller LONG before the Wii was ever even announced or released.

    Still better than eating the wall with hasty rip-off...

    I say if the product is good/better than it's predecessor,people shouldn't ditch it just because "someone did it before".

    If people weren't copying at all,we wouldn't see many of the (good) things we see now.
    I'm not saying people should copy,but i don't see why people should stop themselves of making thing somebody else made if they can make it better.

    It's called improvement.

    oooooor you could also kick out the second cook out of the kitchen while you wait another 2 year for the first cook to realize what he did wrong...if he does because hey,if it sell,then it must be good!

    But that's just my opinion.
    Competition has always been a good way of improving things.
