The Official Images from Sony for the upcoming motion controller "Move" were recently released at GDC '10. These images detail both the wand and some of the games that were made playable to both media and developers at the conference.
This looks great. I love the no lag part about it. This will surly beat out the competition.
I made fun of it of looking like a sex toy that a girl would enjoy ;D But now that I've seen what it can really do, I'm impressed. Good job Sony. Now I wanna see what Microsoft can do which I don't expect much.
No lag is not only a good thing, it's ESSENTIAL if you want to play a game that requires any skill or precision at all. Not just waving your arms around hoping to hit something.
There is room on my gaming shelf for all three. My Move will sit right next to my Natal and Wii chucks. Unless I'm playing it that is.
The thing is it will be hard to see Natal cause of all the dust on it.
And again not likely
I guess we'll have to wait for E3 to see what Microsofts got. The screenshots look good I watched the conference, looks good, I don't know if I'd buy one right away. I think Sony is definitely targeting a casual audience. Socom looks cool, that's definitely on my must buy list, I just wonder how tight Move can be in a shooter that's hectic. No hardcore shooter fan is gonna give up the sixaxis for that, unless its greater than or at least equal to the standard controller. Both Natal and Move are only coming out to try and capture the Nintendo audience.
how is sony targetting a casual audience when you've got support for RE5, LBP and socom 4 ?
It's really the same gripes that people give Natal at this point. The games look kinda kiddie. There's probably gotta be some time before both the controls and the games can match where they are now. Does it look fun though? no doubt.
Some pretty innovative stuff can be made with natal though I'd prefer to use hardware as a controller. We'll wait and see...
Why does every articles comments section start with somebody flinging poo at one console or another. Crazy. I hardly doubt dust will be settling in on the natal, but since it's hands free maybe you're right.
is real impressive. Now I am going to get a lot of *hit for this but it looks like this may also be CPU intensive for this devise for Sony, this is if the graphics in the games are anything to go by, hey there is still plenty of time for improvment, but Natal beater I think not, I fully intend to be a multiconsole owner, and if I saw this on the 360 I would be saying the same thing, I am just not very impressed at all.
to be a very hard person to impress Tudors. I see where ur coming from but for me Playstation Move seems the way to go i loved the Wii when i had it then i got sick of it cause there wasn't that many games i wanted for it so i sold it. Best thing is the Eye has 3D tracking which is cool i don't really need 2 things that are like the Playstation Eye to that point i don't go online with my 360 so Natal will never see light in my house hold.
"it looks like this may also be CPU intensive for this devise for Sony, this is if the graphics in the games are anything to go by, hey there is still plenty of time for improvment, but Natal beater I think not, I fully intend to be a multiconsole owner, and if I saw this on the 360 I would be saying the same thing, I am just not very impressed at all." The video in this News article ~ http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... addresses the CPU issue that you "believe" to be a problem. As far as a "Natal beater" I don't see why not since Sony/PlayStation has been doing Natal style games with the PS2 over 7-8 years ago last gen and since Sony has also been dev'ing a Controller Peripheral for that same amount of time there is no reason why it can't do Wii style game too on top of the PS3 games it can already do...the PS3 truly does everything.
The Move definitely looks like a device worth owning, from the videos and articles out there is looks like it combines casual and more hardcore aspects. It will be the rate and quality of development that will determine if the Move has promise to be an impressive control medium. Hence why it was shown at GDC.
