Shuhei Yoshida,President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed the compatibility of the existing Move controllers with the PS4.
Wasnt this confirmed before ? I saw an article in february
it was confirmed at the Feb 20th reveal, but when websites want to get some clicks they pull old stuff and update the dates. Remember this? http://i.imgur.com/gaWWTP8....
Kind of like this. http://youtu.be/QuHvpUrLn8M
You'd never see micro$oft doing something like this. LOL They want to sell you all new stuff every time. This is yet another example of how Sony understands the gamer's market much better than micro$oft. Go Sony!!!!!
LMAO! @ abzdine.... Funny sh!t.
I didn't pay attention at the time. Nice one, but I rarely use mine anyway.
Apparently I didn't either, but good to know... and glad they will be compatible.
nice, maybe my psmove will get some used i only ever tried it out with re5 as far as i remeber thinking it would be like re4 wii edition and it just didnt stick with me so i went back to the dualshock3 with great relief i might say. hopfully its more smooth with ps4 games if its easy enough that is
well seeing as the DS4 has a light bar on it, I'm not sure devs will go the extra mile for the PS Move. I mean, they didn't in this generation, why should they bother next gen?
The other issue you have is the PS eye is not sold with every PS4 console so even less developers will look at move or even the DS4 light bar. This is one advantage the WiiU and Xbox one have over the PS4 in terms of motion control. But that said im sure the 1st party games will use it in some cool ways.
@mcstorm I actually think it is an advantage. Since it is really optional the chance it is mandatory for games is almost 99% while the others... since it comes with the console, the chance they force motion control is higher. And after playing Wii and Kinect... I'm have to say I'd rather stick to a controller :3 But, of course, that is my choice and preference.
@ArchangelMike As a developer you arent interested in spending ressources on something that only 25% of your target audience can use. As soon as that number starts going below 100%, it becomes a "Nice to have feature" and gets cut away if deadlines are getting hard to meet. OR it gets tacked on to the product just so publishers can slap a "Works with Kinect/PSMove" tag on it.
@NightmareLuffy I have to disagree it is not an Advantage. Move is a really good device but was over looked by most of the 3rd party's this gen and it will be next to.
Even with it being a mandatory part of the console, that doesn't mean developers want to spend any extra time and money making concessions for it. They could just as easily tack some stuff on with the mandatory Kinect as the optional PS4Eye. In the end, it boils down to whether or not they WANT to use the device.
and suddenly motion capture gaming is good even though i've seen YOU specifically complaining about how motion controls are gimmicks -_-
Good to know Sony is not going to nickle and dime us with proprietary peripherals. I would like to know if the PSeye for PS3 will also work for the PS4. In theory it should being it works with usb. But I guess they would have to include the drivers for it.
@slazer101 - The new PS4 camera runs off a dedicated port, so it don't use the USB's. Hence why the PS3 camera, I believe won't work on PS4.
Yeah I know that the PS4 camera is proprietary. Just wondering because the PS4 has USB ports also. One can hope right. Lol
Sony just add an analog stick to the main Move controller and I will love you!
That was really the only thing bad about the move. You cant use 2 moves in sword or boxing games and still walk around.
Thank you for agreeing. Would make for much easier gameplay in games.
Nice i just bought the sharpshooter works great with KZ3! I hope KZ shadowfall support it 2. It just takes a little time to get used to it.
Yeah! It was my only use for the move. I just had to use a support for my left arm (the chair turned around)
i thought it was pretty obvious
"existing Move controllers" So does that mean there is a new Move controller on the way for the PS4?
No, it doesn't!
This was confirmed when the PS4 was announced in Feb. We've been working on a PS4 DualShock 4/Move game for several months now. Check out our old tech demos to get an idea of where we are heading with the type of motion controlled gameplay we're creating. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
In fact, when I got into a spirited debate with a friend over motion controlled gaming, I used that tech demo of yours as proof Move could be implemented into core gaming. (It's always been my contention that it's the fault of tunnel visioned, greedy publishers who shoehorn popular genres that simply don't work well within the framework of motion gaming. Think FPSs on tablets). I told him just imagine playing Amnesia or Penumbra with your accessory! However, that said, I just sadly wonder if will gain traction now that Sony didn't bundle the camera in with the PS4. Having worked in retail management, I know the mark up on accessories/peripherals is as high as 75%; if the MSRP is only $60 for the Eye2, then I assume the OEM costs are half that. Shame they just didn't include it in at the $399 price point
Thanks so much! We really appreciate the support and you using our video as part of your debate! We were initially bummed when Sony decided not to bundle the camera. They put a lot of work into upgrading the camera, but to have hit the $399 price point with the camera in the box probably would have been tough. Especially after confirming that the console is going to have 8gb of GDDR5 Ram. With the greatly increased motion control capabilities of the DualShock 4 (even without the camera), I expect to see more quality motion-controlled experiences, and a lot more consumers who will make the camera purchase once something comes out that is appealing to them.
Well duh. It would have taken some serious stupidity on Sony's part to release another move controller that functions exactly the same as the PS3 one, but only works on PS4
of course move controllers will work on PS4 since that DS4 works like move with it's light bar capturing by PS4 camera in real time
I heard before you use it you'll have to dust it off first
Since XBO will have the install base, 3rd parties may port over the functions for the move. Right now, my move controllers are collecting dust.
hey guys i've got the sony pulse elite 7.1 surround sound wireless headset and im just wondering if it will be compatible with the PS4?
That's because it's really the same as last time. They just added another RGB camera.
Why are u here...u bash Sony all the time. Get out. Isn't there a Xbox article for u to read. God get a life, every Sony article I go to your there with something nasty to say. U clearly have a console of choice, and that's great, so go to that page. OK. Thanks.
lol...no need to get riled up dude. It's the truth. Where did I say something nasty?. Sony didn't invest a lot in this camera technology.
Your a notorious troll sir. I'm not riled up, I'm just sick of seeing you with something shitty to say ALL the time. Even in your response to me you managed to throw another jab in at Sony. I don't know why I bother with Trolls like you. I guess I should've responded with the obligatory anti Xbox comment, but I've got nothing to say..because I'm a gamer not a troll sir. Edit: BTW something can't be the "same" if its different that the previous model. You know I could say the same about Kinect, but that would mean I sunk to your level, and that's right around boot height.
How did I throw a jab at sony? They even said they weren't investing a lot into the camera technology and that it's not a priority. Chill out dude. No reason to get all upset over this stuff. There is more to life than console gaming. No need to jump to the defense mode.
I know there is...that's why u should stop posting on Sony threads. There's a reason you have only 3 bubbles. Stop playing the victim.
I still want to use my move controller with killzone hopefully we have that option
Ive been knowing this
