Sony's Jack Tretton has announced in a post-conference interview at GDC that all types of games can be adpated for motion controls. "There isn't a game that won't apply to this motion gaming," he said.
I just hope all games don't end up like Wii games which are usually not that great.
Which Wii games have you played?
I got a feeling this may Move *wink* some consoles
Who will they market to? And why will the target buy a PS3 and the motion package over the Wii they probably already own?
Pretty much what I've been saying all along. Who on earth is going to dump their inexpensive Wii with it's inexpensive games for Natal and Move?
Dude would you stop posting that image?!!! PS Move takes all the best parts of the wii and makes them better. Plus Move is not replacing the ps3, just adding to its ever-growing awesomeness.
I have a PS3 and a Wii for my son. After seeing the Move demo today we made the decision to sell the Wii and buy the necessary accessories for the Move when it comes out. Sony and Nintendo are on 2 different levels. Nintendo has taken advantage of the public with shoddy games, shoddy graphics and poor controls. Sony is showing the world how to do motion control the right way. With a plethora of 1st party devs and all 3rd party publishers on board we're going to be seeing some great things. Another thing that came to my mind during the demo was the great opportunity for online play. That's something that the Wii doesn't take advantage of. So to answer your question, Sony is targeting Wii owners who are unhappy with a crappy product.
I too have really wondered where the market is. Yeah there is a huge casual market out there, but with the X amount of Wii's sold and those particular customers buy ALL the same games (look at the top seller list, been the same for a long time) I am one who has said that the PS3 doesn't really need the Move. However if the games that come with it, can go WELL BEYOND (no pun intended) what the Wii has done, then I'm all for it.
remember when games were made for, you know.... gamers? People with like, manual dexterity? Ahh, nostalgia...
This comment wins.
All type of games? How can you play Starcraft II with motion? I can see it working with voice commands + motion, but not entirely motion.
I love the idea of a shooter with a motion controller, not so sure about voice commands.
Just saying, not all games as Sony says fit the motion technology. Shooter games, that's cool. RTS games and MMO with all those buttons and commands? Now that's a bit too ambitious without adding voice-commands along with motion.
You do know that they said it will also take voice commands right? It was in their trailer, after all.
where Sony demo the Move. The demo was about tanks where you can choose or group the tanks together and direct them to their next destination. I think that game play can be adapted to Starcraft.
I highly doubt StarCraft 2 will be for consoles anyway.
See the demo back in E3 2009: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Fast forward to 6:39 and you'll see that Starcraft kind of game play is possible.
Thanks Sony for degrading your well known company in the dirt and making us all ps3 owners look like complete retards.
you don't even own a PS3, so shoo
if you think PS3 owners look like retards, just think about how absolutely moronic XBOX360 owners are going to look flailing their hands and legs without a controller. I can only imagine how stupid Natal is going to make people look. The guys on Jimmy Fallon looked pretty ridiculous when they were demoing it. If I wanted to drive a car without a racing controller, I would simply grab that imaginary steering wheel and close my eyes. No need to spend another hundred bucks or so.
Now your so DELUSIONAL you THINK you have a PS3?
Finally, motion controls that a hardcore gamer like me can get into.
want to use these with Resident Evil 5. I absolutely loved playing RE4 on the Wii.
At first,i didn't have any faith at all in this motion controller thing, but after today's conference i decided to get it 1st day. I was afraid it would turn out like wii with their annoying wired nunchuck and also little support for hardcore games like killzone 3 or socom 4. After I saw the socom's demo,i'd convinced myself to support sony in this motion thing. I just hope that they don't get distracted too much by Playstation Move and forget about other thing,like the "real" games. Casual games like those sport stuff is cool,but making them like what Nintendo does with Wii is unacceptable. My support on Nintendo stopped after Gamecube ( I don't have N64 either) because they forgot how to make great games and focusing too much on that casual games thing. I have faith in Sony as always. They never disappoint me since the day I bought PSX in 1996 :)
They should have shown that horror game in the montage. I love that atlus and fromsoftware are on board for this.
sword fights in Demon's Soul 2 here we come
I would like to see that and SLIDER. I would think everyone would want a little kung-fu action on a roller chair.
i wanna know what that horror looking game was in the trailer. it looked like you controlled a flash light with one of the controllers. id love a first person horror game.one controller for a flashlight other for a hand gun. then they can have a shot gun with a front grip on the slide and actually let you pump it. could come up with pretty cool games with this remote. lets just hope they do.
that'd be amazing, to think, there are things yet to be done in FPS games
Thats the Move...
rts games could be done with this perfectly. its 1:1. get ur cursor on screen, and u now have your very own console-like mouse.
Better than a mouse. A mouse can only track in 2 dimensions, the PSmove can be tracked in 3 dimensions.
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Aaron Greenburg hasnt said a peep since last month? Im willing to bet everyone at the MS camp are very scared now.
Neither Sony or MS is going to have the success the Wiik is seeing. I hate this whole F'n motion BS. I couldnt tell you the last time I turned on my Wii. It seriously irks the hell out of me how aggressively Sony and MS are trying to capture an already tapped market. Edit- Move and Natal can both suck my BALLZ SON! DS3 FTW! F this causual ass crap! Put these resources towards something else. I'd rather play games wearing a Helmet and 3D googles vs jumping around a room like a guerrilla or dueling to the MF'n death!
Lol your last sentence was pretty funny.
This is a smart move by Sony to show all this off now the pressure is on MS and Nintendo, and I like how there integrating it to hardcore games, even some of the mini games look very promising but there is still a lot of time to go, I heard that supposedly insomniac is doing a move game for the fall, this maybe was a disappointment for most since there were expecting new games to be announce but it was a great business decision by Sony by showing off their controller and telling it will be less than 100 buck they just place themselves in a very good spot going into E3, and they still have not a announce there fall lineup, E3 is going to be huge…
O.O imagine legend of dragoon with playstation move that be pretty cool
One thing that is true for Sony is that they know who buys their games and what they want, and they have been consistant since the PS1. They won't forget that. No, there won't be too many games for Move for people that read N4G, but that's OK. It's an addition to a great system and that's all. What's scary for MS is that they're going all-in with Natal, almost to the point where the future of their gaming division depends on its success.
