We've got the US price and release details for Pure Chess, coming to the PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita May 29.
I love chess.
I didnt see were it said the price in the article
nvm its in the red caption bubble its $7.99, not a bad price I'm gonna pick this up, hope its has training and scalable AI
the good: its chess the bad: three and a half days to load a game, you can move the camera up/down and around the board but you cant lock in a camera position, i would like the camera a bit closer, no online mode
No online mode?
No online is worrisome... then again, I hate getting my ass kicked by total strangers.
No online more for a chess game? Ok, I usually don't make a big deal out of a game having no online. But THIS...isn't cool Now I won't be buying it. Chess is a competitive game by nature. Not having online for it is like...I don't know...E circumcizing or something...
if no online mode ,this fails
Depends. If it has the difficulty settings on the windows version then it'll have a lot of playability behind it.
Sorry there isnt a windows version. Talking bout a different game lol but basically im saying if the difficulties are good then it'll be fine.
im so accustomed TO yahoo chess
There is an online 'play by mail' mode, you send each move as a message then wait for a reply... It's not great but it works. There is no decent tutorial/trainer, just a few things telling you how the pieces move. There is also no way to analyze a game, no suggested moves, no way to see what would have been better. It does look nice, it's a virtual chess set, that's about all. If you love chess, it's worth buying. If you want to learn chess try elsewhere. Final gripe: in tournament mode a stalemate is a loss, you have to win all games, no best 3/5, lose or draw and it's game over.
