News: Sony’s senior VP Scott Rohde explains why the company is pushing motion gaming despite criticism from the core fans.
they are and even though Wonderbook isnt for me, i KNOW kids will eats this up big time. we may have this boring during the presser, but i think it was a very smart move on their part. i know i dont have nothing to worry about from Sony they are still giving the core games that i want while trying to still cater to the families with kids. wonderbook has great potential, and sony will still support motion gaming. you know what's funny people here are complaining they are using up resources that can go to more core games on PS3 and Vita, but for what i saw at the presser they are still doing that while supporting motion gaming.
i know people complain about sony wasting time and money on these family things like wonderbook, but complain that they are making to many exclusive quality games and they dont have enough money to buy them all lol. you either complain about one or the other and one shouldn't matter to the other because its not affecting it. good old sony
@TLG exactly that fact that Sony is supporting motion gaming while still releasing core games shows no resources are being wasted. i saw an article the other day showcasing the games coming to vita and most were 1st party, they even stressed at the presser the core gamer is still their number priority. gamers this gen seem to have this entitlement complex and they need to let that go.
All I can think of is portal in motion. Patching up portal and new add on content for move.
If your fans aren't supporting it; is it a good idea to back a dead horse?
10million+ units is failing now?
Compared to the Wii's success? Yeah it is. Even their gimmicky as hell Wii Balance Board has sold over 42 million worldwide.
Yes, because they did a great job showing off Wonderbook. lol Don't mean to diss Sony there, but come on. Any Sony fan hated that demo.
i liked the demo and im the biggest sony fan going. i just dont think it fits with sony unless they can get serious support and even then people arnt going to folk out for a ps3, wonderbook, move then each book just to read a book you can pick up for £10-15
@K By showing wonderbook they are supporting move, that's the point I don't care about it, it almost killed the conference for me by being so boring IF Sony wants to keep supporting motion-controls, they need to find a way to integrate it with their next default controller, because it's clear that people will take their DS3 over Move any day of the week, by making an hybrind kind of joystick, they can support it and be successful, the wii-controller was successful by being the default controller, not another one you had to buy separately
@sikbeta If you're gonna support move, support it with something that's intriguing and worth playing.
Ps3 only owner, 21 and i think it has potential
It's not always about rated M games. You also have to have kids games too and my kids will eat this up just like they ate up both eyepet games. Jeez, you guys need to relax sometimes. I think it looked pretty interesting, but of course I MUST be a casual gamer right?
Well that's great, sony, but the gamers aren't supporting it.
are you sure sony???
i like motion gaming and i like some hardcore games with Move like The Fight, Killzone 3 and Sports Champions. Infamous 2 with move was also nice ! It works well when it's well used but we need more good games if they hope to change anything because 1 game out of 100 is supporting Motion controls.
then they should get one of their party's to make a survival-horror revolving around motion control, much like Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. It's amazing how 'right' it feels to use the Wii remote to control a flashlight and the Move should take advantage of that. Would make for an incredibly immersive experience.
They are making one. Its working title has been known as 'Until Dawn' and it's been in development for some years now. I think they're gonna reveal it at Gamescom, if not the weeks running up to it. http://forums.gametrailers....
They should do a fatal frame game. Back in the day that game really creeped me out.
lol no Sony.Just no.
Of course they are still supporting it, didn't anyone see Wonderbook? lol
Heavy support with one sequel on a sportsgame and some storybook for kids? Releasing some Sorcery game, almost the only reasonable Move title in how long, a year time? I bought the Move, because finally there was a precise motion controller unlike the Wiimote bad tracking. Those Move gamepatches don't work, games are played better with DS3. Games made specifically for Move, better said good or great games made for it, are not there.
Stop the motion casual shit. Take the recources for the vita:D<3
Sony: “we’re still supporting motion gaming” LOL. Good one.
I love the move, the games my family plays are really awesome, House of he dead 4 is fun with a move. I think core gamers these days are just seeing a lot of changes to the usual core games only videogame console and that takes em out of their little comfort zone and some panic. My ps3 truly is my family's total entertaintment system right now, I get home and my kid's watching cartoons on netflix, I play Move based or family based, multiplayer based games with the wife. I listening to music while I work out a bit with music unlimited on the ps3 since i got the free 1 month trial (loving it btw), and the I play some hardcore games at nights often. Wonderbook is going to be HUGE, Whoever says different just doesn't have a clue really. Why you ask? J.K Rowling. Jeez... you know what Harry Potter is alright and I didn't think myself that it wasn't as huge as it is but good god. Did you guys know that universal studios in order to put the wizarding world of Harry P in their theme park had to pay up the ass to do so? estimates say more than 400 million dollars. Ever since that section of the park opened it became the most visited theme park IN THE WORLD. People book 5 thousand dollar vacations in there just so they can have the priviledge to enter the harry potter area with their whole family just one hour early than everyone else. Millions made in books, movies, items. It's crazy how big potter along with jk rowling's fanbase is and when this thing get's out it's going to shit out money trust me. I showed the video at my job to some of the potter fans and they went NUTS. Sony knows what it's doing.
well they are supporting it in very miniscule way. having move supported games is good but what it needs is more games that are exclusive to move like sorcery, fight: the lights out and sports champion. they really need to get that in their heads.
Move is good as dead...lol
All they need is a proper fighting game and rpg and they're back in it.
maybe so. Its definitely not the technology because its quite impressive. I just don't think devs are excited about developing for it.
@cstyle I think there will be more announcements at Gamescom
That's another move support right there. Not to mention the next Portal DLC that comes with it. Need I mention Bioshock: Infinite?
thx for the reminder, I had forgotten about it completely. But seriously, I would have no problem if they just dumped the move and focused on other stuff. The same goes to MS and Kenect.
Trying to support such a casual-like peripheral on one side (Move) while trying to support such a hardcore-focused system (Vita) can get any company's hands full. It's a really difficult thing to do and I don't know if the reward is worth it in the case of the Move. Sony's manufacturing FOUR different gaming systems and one major peripheral. I feel like that makes it too hard to focus on what their majority wants. Sony! You are officially the only one of the Big 3 to devote yourselves completely to the hardcore! If you're going to support motion gaming, please make Move the very very last thing on your list.. and preferably Vita as your top :) (sorry PS3)
They need an upgraded camera and an redesigned controller. I try to support move but(wanted for Bioshock infinite)its button placement and buttons period are little and i get lost.
I was playing Pixeljunk 4am yesterday for the first time yesterday (with Move, of course). It's awesome. I had almost 100 people listening to my performance.
