Original-Gamer: "At the Pre-PAX East event, Sony showed off their Playstation Move. Too bad it didn't work."
The problem was the battery. It's not like Natal where the problem is the actual hardware. lol
There were hundreds of people attending the event that gave Move a go, causing the battery to die. What does that tell you? That's right, it means that Move is the next big thing! Enjoy bashing Sony and Move fanboys,because you won't be laughing for long!
A TECH DEMO NOT WORKING! how dare it.
wow. they'll never live that.....49 second delay down.
You don't say.
Use this why you can, because after E3, and when the Natal and the Move come out everyone will see wich one is better... Here's a hint it's the one that works with real games.
lol sony have Embarrassing Moments since lauch of ps3 in 2006.. " flop games" "flop sales" "copied the softwares of nintendo ( move rip off ) " "genric games" ps3 is died in this ps3 fanboys... deal whit it ;)
dat makes a nice kevin butler ad
wow it was off.
Oh wow, is that it? Why did it say he changed the batteries? Thought it had an internal one like DualShock 3. I'd crap my pants if I was demoing it in front of an audience and that happened to me. Though I wouldn't say it's embarrassing for Sony, just for the girl having a hundred pair of eyes waiting for her to fix it. I'd change the title to "Girl Suffers Embarrassing Moment Demoing Move for Pre-PAX Audience" though nobody would care then.
If that isn't deserving of a facepalm, what is? Lack of batteries; front page news.
ps move is so accurate it can detect a fart 30 feet away. cmon' millions upon millions of gamers will own this, and it will be a major success story. and the only thing embarrassing is your article fails! hahahaha and to the natal people and faboys stop comparing this to natal, its not a move vs natal article wft insanity...
it wasnt off, the battery died. either sony didnt charge it up completely, or people must have really liked it.
the headline made it seem much worse, wow one random controllers battery dies on the show floor among tons of working machines. HOW EMBARRASSING /sarcasm FAKE STORY IS FAKE
But that the retail units will have it.
All that happened was the batteries were dead. It happened to a few of the controllers at the event. It was because there was 300+ people in attendance.
Alpha-Male22, the move controller & sub-controller run on li-ion batteries and recharge exactly like a DS3. They most likely just grabbed a fresh controller. ....oh my what a terribly embarrassing scene.
yeah I'd assume that it would happen eventually. No big deal really, but this is getting a lot of views. Successful title is successful. @Praxis It says they "changed" the batteries. Maybe it's just for the pre-release version like 357 said. OT: you and 357 have cool names lol.
Embarrassing, Yeah, But Sony suffering from it? No I don't think it would would have affected anyone's opinion about it, I mean it was just a need of changing batteries. It just a simple mistake which I can see one doing after traveling so much to certain gaming events like gdc and engadget, showing off the PS Move to the press and developers alike.
Dumb way to get hits, the controller wasn't on, shhhot happens. It doesn't mean there is a problem with the tech like the tittle implies. All these stupid people with stupid blogs, if you want to be taken seriously give us real news and not this stupid crap just to get hits.
yeah i was going to say isnt it suppose for that ball to shine when its on? lol
shouldn't really matter that there were 300+ people at the event... It was only 3 hours and I would expect the controller to last through more than 3 hours of continuos use. If they were changing batteries then the demo controllers must not have the lithium ion packs in them... maybe they are just using alkalines for now? Alkalines don't fair as well vs lithium ions for intensive power draws. This does raise a concern for battery life though. Has Sony said how long the controller is supposed to function on a charge?
this would be embarass http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'd have to guess that the PSMove will have similar battery time as a DS3. It may be a little shorter, but I doubt it will be a major issue.
That is funny. It's on par with not plugging it in.
Haha, people hating on Sony when its there own idiocy. Funneh
Complete flaimbait, non story. Oh look teh battery died so therefore teh Move fails and sony are embarrassed....gtfo desperate fanboys.
It's not much more embarrassing then let's say... The console dying at press events...
It demonstrates clearly that certain people are so afraid of Move, it's technology, it's potential, and it's inevitable ownership of the market that they will grasp at any straw to try and put a stain on it. Well the only thing that is embarrassing is this article's failed attempt.
Could be worse your console could be dead on display. Remember all those RROD Xbox's on display in events like this? Now [email protected] embarrassing!
Hey, battery died on my 360 controller when I was showing a game to my buddies. Let's make it news!!!
WoW, this article is really lame, wanna see something Embarrassing http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So when the Sony move is off you simply change the batteries but what do you do for the latency in the natal?
I'm pretty sure dead batteries would make it turn off, as is the case with most battery powered devices.
She is the one to blame for those low batteries. Get it?
I agree. Just like all the Natal hate like: 1. It doesn't see Black People 2. You have to stand 3 meters back 3. Natal cannot keep up with motion tracking Yet for some reason you were in all those post saying how much of a FAIL Natal was when actually those things all turned out to be fake or have the same issue as MOVE (latency). Hypocrite much?
One problem out of the thousands of demos... FAIL. /sarcasm
haha your right it is off, wow any thing to make Sony look bad XD, I'm sure Sony is so embarrassed from having a controller die and needing to be recharged! AHA!! LOL!!!
Hm and i remember all the times seeing xbox 360`s RROD on the show floor of such expos like E3. Or myself personaly i have seen so many xbox 360`s that have RROD at a store like gamestop or walmart. So one little screw up no room to talk. Also i bought a xbox 360 once from walmart took it home hooked it up and BOOM! RROD!
LOOL epic fail
Hate to say it but that's funny.
i bet it was not as embarrassing as when that one guy that was demoing windows 95 to bill gates and the computer bsoded him right in front of bill gates lol
haha i remember that bill acted like he was so confused and worried.
Extra controllers. Extra nunchucks. Extra (other) devices. More "stealth" costs to YOU. Same end result for sony........... 3RD place this gen. And the droids have the nerve to say microsoft rip people off. This wiimote version 2.0 wannabe is gonna cost you a fortune. Natal......... one device, no further costs.
batteries. can you charge a wiimote while playing [email protected] they dont charge the move its just play and pass on. and really the 360 cost more then the ps3 right now, xbox live fee, batteries for the controll and wifi. so i dont get waht you talking about. i bet you if you didnt pay for live, the wifi adapter and all the batteries for the 360 controller you can probably buy 2 of the move
So when Natal releases, XBOX Live is free? It's about time!!!! EDIT: I've always wondered why I don't enjoy my PS3. You hit the nail on the head. Its coz its in 3rd place in sales. Just can't enjoy my PS3 when its 3rd, just like I can't enjoy a game until it outsells Halo. Come on PS3 owners the sales, how else can I enjoy my PS3 games. Never mind that lead that is gradually shrinking. The 360 is 2nd in a HANDICAP race. A handicap race is the results still count, but someone always has a HEADSTART!!
BWAHAHA! Extra input devices are "stealth costs"? LOL It's not like the 360 where necessities cost $100 when better quality accessories of the same type cost half that on other consoles (e.g. HDD)
But but but the batteries! http://www.mrmobileuk.com/i... But but but the extra other devices! http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-... Nuff said.
where should i begin to described your "2nd coming of jesus through your eyes " console................ i need to get 5 hour energy and a snicker to begin this huge text wall i can write with proof.But i'll just keep it simple in a 3 list 1. kids play thing 2. mom and dad credit card to pay for online 3. 54%
I like how Mooey lists a wireless wifi adapter, a wireless headset and a wireless battery charger as if they're necessities. Once you have a wireless controller the only thing you need is a play and charge kit which is like less than 20 dollars. The headset comes with the console and nobody needs wifi. What is it with Sony fans and lists? I see list after list in every article I go into. Somebody mentions Halo and it's someones knee jerk reaction to make a list. It's pretty weird.
True. Just like how no one needs Blu-Ray. Why adapt to more advanced and convenient 21st century technological tools when you can just sit pretty with your scan-and-pan big screen TV, DVD, long connection cords and all the rest of the 20th century tech that was groundbreaking in 1998, right? Advancement is for A-holes Anyway!
Well you seem pretty content with PSN when that's obviously inferior to Xbox Live so why not advance with the rest of us? Advancement is for A-holes though right?
when we can play 256 players without lag on psn i dont think you need to pay, after paying 60 bucks on a game charging for online is a farce. Live on PC is free btw pc owners are too smart i guess.
All those extra things mooey listed are whats required to make the 360 on par with an out of the box PS3 @ $299. I think its logical that the move package will cost more than the natal seeing as there is more hardware involved. Man some of you are so dumb.
@2.10 - I find it ironic that you're calling us delusional when you're spewing nonsense. The PS3 slim does NOT come with a headset let alone a wireless one it also does NOT come with HDMI cables.
Natal it will only cost you ur dignity
Well yeah you got me on the HDMI lead but if you wanna bring the headset to the "required" elements ill raise you a HDdrive add on and after that worthless attempt at correcting me the 360 still costs hundreds more. Even if you bought all the accessories possible it still would not be on par with the ps3 (blu-ray, blutooth, internet browser, RELIABILITY etc etc). Cant believe your actually gonna argue over which console is the better value for money when its so blatantly obvious, thats why you bots are delusional.
not as embarrising as natals avater mess up. along with natal its self is embarresing
Calm down, nobody is saying Move is an embarrassment. It was a simple hiccup, you don't have to turn this into another childish Motion War.
It's not like it malfunctioned during a presentation, It was just one controller out of god knows how many, very misleading.
Ever wonder what thaaa....bottom of an AVATAR shoe looks like?.
Well BAM there it is!
that song actually rules XD soo funny!
not really embararassing as the natal one http://www.youtube.com/watc... i think is just the batteries man. imean it cant be charged while playing it.
Actually, I'm pretty sure they can be. With that said, the controllers were being used all day, non-stop, having them die is no surprise. The lamest thing about this is the morons that are celebrating this as some sort of victory. FAIL.
