Stuff.TV: PlayStation Move first look video

Stuffmagazine's Jools is invited to check out PlayStation's answer to the Wii's brilliant motion sensitive gameplay. It's called PlayStation Move...but will it be able to lure people away from Nintendo's massively popular console? Have a little look and see what you think.

Best of Both Worlds!

PlayStation Move is going to be the best all around Motion Controller IMO.

Good preview from Stuff.
Seems like all the reports on the controller mention the same thing: the controller is accurate.

Good going Sony: now get us some lots of good games for the device :)

here you see difference between professional European guy vs American overly cynical(trying to be funny/cool) journalists/sites.
Not saying that there aren't EU guys that act as Americans.

Less monkey shaving, more gameplay.

thereapersson2372d ago

There was noticeable lag. I think it even caused him to miss the ball a couple times.

And here I thought NATAL's lag was bad...

DaTruth2372d ago (Edited 2372d ago )

The thing about the Move that gives me more confidence in it than Natal is Sony isn't afraid to show it!

Wait for E3, Wait for E3.... so MS can produce a commercial directed by David Copperfield with assistants... er, actors pretending to have fun and doing things the system will never be capable of. I mean, you can't just set up smoke machines and mirrors anywhere!

Shadow Flare2372d ago

Notice how sony preview their controller to a tech magazine but microsoft preview their camera to a bunch of half baked celebrities numbnuts

Hellsvacancy2372d ago

I think thats the 4th comment youve made in 2 days that ive agreed with

+1 2-u mofo

This is Great... and all, but I want -> [Minority Report] by PS-Move

Christopher2372d ago

I'll give you there was some delay with the games that uses the camera to project your image onto the screen, but other than that I have to call you crazy to even come close to comparing this to Natal's lag.

Table Tennis didn't show any noticeable lag at all and he missed the ball only one time due to him aiming too high to hit it, not because of lag.

And, the lag with the camera has been known for ages since the lag is from having to process the video images and not the controller. But, those are all casual games as well.

I do think that the SOCOM 4 gameplay may be a bit awkward for someone to use while sitting since the aiming reticle follows the move controller, which when at center must be pointing directly at the TV. I think I would prefer it if the move controller controlled turning and the reticle remained centered.

Rumor2372d ago

i love the accuracy of it.

on another note, it really bugs me that the navigation nunchuck has no motion controls. its confusing enough tho to see that in the Kevin Butler from the future video, the guy playin socom throws his hand to throw a grenade, but he has the actual move in his other hand. hmmm??

seen at 1:02

Hideo_Kojima2372d ago

It wouldnt have been hard to program the camera to pick that up...
With tech seen in Eye Toy.

They could use the location of your face and the move controller to locate your left side. Then when movement is detected above your face going down it could detect you want to through a grenade.

It wouldn't be as precise though.

Christopher2372d ago

It's likely just a button press, he was just asked to act out throwing the grenade.

fr0sty2372d ago

pseye is more than capable enough to detect the gesture of your hand throwing a grenade, or signaling your squad, or any number of things you can do with gesture control. it does not require the 3d vision of natal to tell a gesture has been made. gesture based control does not require 1:1 accuracy. zipper has already said they're working on gestures that eye could recognize, like throwing grenades.

UltraNova2372d ago

Thats called trust and confidence on what you promise to deliver, unlike some other companies..

vhero2372d ago

Real people playing with it and no noticeable lag unlike the fanboy above me claims (if there is any its impossible to tell with the naked eye so that's all that counts)No closed booths controlled by MS/Sony where they can be controlled. This is real people and unlike NATAL wince you have the buttons and analogue stick you have a lot more control compared to NATAL there is just some things you cannot do using just your body and a camera!

Rumor2372d ago

thanks for clearing that up for me guys :D

Meryl2372d ago

@rumor there is two ways they can do that granade throw, track the hand via ps eye or they could have six-axis in the nunchuck for all you know lol

we are getting the device (demo station) in work (game) soon i cant wait
Sony hinted to us a fitness game Shhhhhhhhhhhh SHhhhhhhhhhhhhh i will be getting fired

i had a test me self and its a lot better than wii

Jamie Foxx2372d ago (Edited 2372d ago )

Out of all the motion controllers this definately has the most potential just because it works with casual but is just as comfortable with shooters and driving games

Only thing worryin me is the reported rrp of £100 sonys pricing strategy this gen has been awful...launch ps3,psp go...

saint_john_paul_ii2372d ago

well if you do get to play it, give us a good preview of it and give us an unbiased opinion of what you think of it. so far from what i am seeing in this vid, the Move is everything i wished the wiimote could of done.

just dont leak anything to us that you're not suppose to, just give us hints without revealing it, ok, LOL.

THC CELL2372d ago

the demo is for the public who comes to the store

The Wood2372d ago (Edited 2372d ago )

in sight;0

....apart from me and jamie that is

Omega42372d ago

If Sony's going after the causal audience shouldn't the games allow for more than one player to play them?

Cuase those causal mini games looked like only one person would be able to play at a time.

THC CELL2372d ago (Edited 2372d ago )

they are a few games coming where more than 2 people can play

a few diss

Lbp has been shown with 2 player coop
table tennis is 2 player

and trust me they are loads more on the table

clintos592372d ago

Not saying sony cant deliver which we all know they can but seeing the small support they had for the eyetoy is the only reason why I ask but I know if sony really pushed there first party studios to make something amazing, I already know that sony's first party studios are very capable of doing so since they have some of the most talented devs in the gaming industry. Hope they show something new at e3.

Also to Omega4 thats why they have updates and firmwares my friend. :)

thereapersson2372d ago

MOVE supports more than just one player. Even the table tennis game can have two-player action going on at once:

0:40 seconds in. Watch and actually learn something for once...

TreMillz2372d ago

The PS Eye can recognize up to 4 moves at a time or 2 moves and 2 subs. There's guarentee to be game that have 4 players on a screen at 1 time. Don't try to BS Sony's attempt, if the Wii has it, why won't the Move have it, after all its like how your clan calls its, a "Wii clone" right?
