Never-Before-Seen PS Move Tech Demo is Amazing

DualShockers writes, "Yesterday we were fortunate enough to hang out with our buddy Anton Mikailov from SCEA at Sony’s Holiday media preview event in NYC. We caught up with Anton and the PS Move a while back, and although he had some cool stuff to show us last time around, this time I was absolutely floored. Anton showcased some never before seen PS Move tech demos; the same demos that are being shown to 3rd party developers and publishers in order to showcase what the PS Move is all about. The first demo in the clip, is one you may have seen but just wait until you see the “chameleon” and “Rts” demos. Just think about all of the potential. Amazing is the only way to describe it. Check out the clip below." (Dev, Playstation Move, PS3, Sony, Tech)

Honestly, the more I see the Move in action, the more impressed I am with it. A lot of people tend to actually compare it to the Wii's controls. But, although the Wii IS a motion controller, I have yet to see it apply its tech onto applications the way the Move has been doing. For those of you who will try to compare both controllers, do yourself the favor and read on the difference in techs. The fact that developers have the option to patch code into current and future games that can make use of the controller is an amazing feat on its own.

Next PS3 to have inbuilt HD PS Eye? haha, in 4 years time might not seem so stupid.

Have to say, I was probably going to get Move after seeing E3 conference, but the more I see what it can do, which is not just the crap Casual stuff, makes me excited to see what amazing games Devs like Naughty Dog could produce.

Sorry in 4+ years time I'm sure it will be a 4D cam that will cost alot to include, trying to push the industry forward with the tech, increasing the PS4 price higher, making people cry, then 2-3 years later when the tech becomes common place/standard get over it and start to realise it was the best decision/value for money and will be used for years to come without the need to buy any extra (expensive) add-ons etc.

i'm just waiting for a truly cool game. I hope there'll be an Alan Wake-esque game for the Move. That would've been awesome. Or if Dead Space 2 supported Move, I would buy that in a heartbeat.

For now I'll still wait on the sidelines. No games have truly "moved" me yet. Tech demos are awesome but we're not getting access too them :/

Demon's Souls is fantastic but when I think of Move and a RPG I cross my fingers and think about The Witcher 2.
Seijoru  +   1958d ago
Move is looking pretty sic! Anyone notice that one of the creators is just a gamer like us and near our ages, that is why I think Move is so in tune to what real gamers want. Its not some PR middle aged guy with a bunch of child actors demonstrating an overpriced camera with pre-rendered footage.

If you order this month's (July) Qore they have a huge section with the creator demoing real use of the tech. It is amazing to say the least. If you are still on the fence I guarantee the demo will make up your mind. Go order July Qore for 2 bucks.

Seriously get a life cez. 2 bucks to me mean shit since I make money with a job. I don't spend my life on N4g bashing everything Sony and sucking MS's dick. Go ahead take my bubbles I don't give a shit. N4g is a cess pool of hate anyways so I could care less.

I get more aggravation from visiting this site than I do information so see ya and I wouldn't wana be ya.

"Shooters and motion controllers don't really mix..." Sure I bet you think shooters and a mouse and keyboard don't mix either right? That is exactly what it will be like to play a shooter with the move.

Yeah I am a Ps3 fanboy that is why I had a Wii, 360, Ps3 and A Laptop that runs rings around your DESKTOP.

Now move along kiddo... and remember there is more to life than N4g.

This is what I'm talking about when I talk about motion controls. The Chameleon may be able to be done with Kinect but move's precision is just what the hardcore need. I am getting this officially day one. They convinced me Socom 4 here I come or Heavy Rain.

Lykon  +   1958d ago
i keep reading about move compared to wii, but seriously , has anyone here tried using wii controls? my experience was that they were highly inaccurate. Move looks like it actually works extremely well. i'm not someone who was interested in motion control, after several frustrating sessions with the wii, and a play through of heavy rain, flapping the dual shock around feeling bored out of my skull i'm starting to feel quite impressed and interested in move.
hazeblaze  +   1958d ago
Yea, that shit was bananas! I hope some Sony 1st party studio gets started on a starcraft- caliber RTS!!! The level of precision in the control was sick! And the fireball demo was pretty sick too... I can't wait to see what the 1st part studios are going to come up with using this tech. Hopefully 3rd party devs will invest some R&D into it too... these short demos already showed how much additional gameplay potential is there!
ShadowCK  +   1958d ago
I love how there is no hate for this device yet in a Kinect article it's the entire opposite. If you think that this technology will appeal to the casual you've got another thing coming. Sony would need a miracle to increase the interest in its Move system. Current sales numbers are not speaking in favor of the PS3.

It's going to be pleasure seeing Kinect crush this appalling abomination.
Lykon  +   1958d ago
your right. I've not seen any hate for move , but not just here but from every hands on preview . I think that's because it is a really good piece of kit... and it would appear to bridge the gap between hardcore and casual effectively...if casuals can manage with the wiis broken (innacurate) controls , they'll be fine with move. Commercialy though we will have to wait and see. Move clearly fixes and improves the wii, I wonder if Kinect can make something new and useable out of webcam movement recognition software (that i remember coming bundled with logitech webcams 10 years ago).

I hate that people compare
it the Wii. Yes it's using two motion controllers and yes it's based on the same general idea. However, even with wii motion plus you CANNOT compare them in accuracy and natural movement. The move is a day one buy.

RubMyTaco  +   1958d ago
That hadouken comment makes me wonder..
Would be pretty cool if they found a way to make street fighter playable with move. Doing your normal attacks (punching, kicking) with the normal buttons, but hold the z button (or whatever it's called on move) and make a movement with the controller(s) to do specials. Seems pretty cool to me. Not sure it would be practical though...

siyrobbo  +   1958d ago
why does every move or kinect thread turn into a move vs kinect debate? cant you just enjoy something for its own merits without having to compare it to something else?

anyway, back on topic, that chameleon demo was very good, i like the direction they are going with the tech, pushing in different directions than what has been done before. Just wish the launch line-up was better
IRetrouk  +   1958d ago
wot merits does kinect have other than being expensive and laggy, we have seen time and time again that it doesnt work as advertised, its an eytoy with a 3d camera, dont get me wrong i love my xbox but move just does a better job of motion control, sorry if you dont agree but i honestly dont really care.
siyrobbo  +   1958d ago
maybe so but why does it have to be continuously rammed down our throats

every new kinect article has 100's of comments about how crap and expensive it is. yes its shit, yes its overpriced, but why the constant repetition

not every kinect article need 3 dozen comments about why move is so superior

If they come out with a good quality RTS game like SC or a Myth type game and it be exclusive to the PS3 Move then I will by one for sure. Star Wars, DBZ, Naruto and Avatar type games would also be a plus.

I wonder What Nintendo is thinking about pertaining to next gen. I would think now they would have to either come out with some new way to interact with games or be forced to come out with an expensive console with up to date tech. Nintendo's next gen console will have to far surpass what the PS3+Move combo can do and get 1st and 3rd party games to match PS3's next console. Next gen will be interesting.

Hacking off limbs in real time would be a fantastic addition to Demon's Souls and i can already picture myself playing an RTS with the intuitive control scheme showed, utilizing voice commands as hotkeys.

The most impressive part about the move is
when it comes to programming it is truly easier to do program for the move than it is for Kinect. Modeling a game towards every persons personal gestures and figure is very hard. But modeling a game on two bulbs and the orientation of a controller that is very very accurate is easy.
