Sony's trojan horse for 3D and Move: games you already own

Sony has money and effort sunk into two technologies: the PlayStation Move and 3D televisions and movies. The company would love nothing more than to have you waving your glowing, ball-tipped controller while wearing glasses in front of your brand new 3D Sony television.

While both technologies will require an investment above and beyond the system you already own, the software side of the effort is doing exactly what it needs to do to get you ready to buy: making sure that you already own games that support each option before you buy either one.

"OH AND ALSO this beats out the question of people say the MOVE aint gonna have any games when it comes out"

Ummm...who the hell said that?

"is MS gonna patch their games to support kinect?
no they wont"

You make it seem like M$ is evil because they don't patch old games to support Kinect. Maybe you should take a few hardware and computer engineering courses to realize how difficult it would be to map Gears of War/Halo's controls to gesture based movements.

My God, the PS3 fanfags on this site always talk about how Sony innovates and Microsoft doesn't and when Microsoft attempts to revolutionize the industry with gesture based controls...you people frown upon them. As far as hardcore games are concerned, Kinect isn't there yet...but NO ONE can deny that the technology itself is impressive.

Kinect isn't something I would purchase at this point in time, but I appreciate that Microsoft is taking risks with this new technology.

Ms is not attemting to revolutionize anything. They simply bought a company with a camera device with similar but slightly better pseye specs. Hardly revolutionary. Slightly evolutionary at best which is a good thing. Its just that the stand alone camera motion scene has been proven limiting a while ago by sony. Sonys approach has shown to be much more pronising. Also you do have a grating personality so you calling out fanatics while constantly defending ms and enjoying getting under the skins of others is amusing.

With Kinect, MS have effectively launched a new console as far as game development/publisher support is concerned.

Why make a game for 2 million people when you can make a game for 40 odd million?

i see a lot of arcade games but not much else.

TheTeam062978d ago

From what I hear, games can't be retrofitted for Kinect, so the only game released before that (Joy Ride) was probably done over again with Kinect in mind. I'm not even sure if you'll be able to use your controller as an alternative for it.

Yeeeeeeaaaaaaah...unfortunate ly Sony had already taken that risk last generation with the EyeToy.

"...the PS3 fanfags on this site always talk about how Sony innovates and Microsoft doesn't..."

Well, can you really blame them? Now if you would like to retain just a shred of dignity, I suggest you shut up for a while.

Raoh2978d ago

i dont believe they can

they had the ability but they removed the processor from kinect to make it cheaper.. i believe this is one of the reasons nintendo and sony passed on the tech.. the cost is still too high for it to work at its full capability

MS originally did plan to patch games but without the processor that is a no go.. future games only

After looking at the chameleon demo i can't help but imagine a spiderman game using move controllers

EDIT: Also Condemned series would be a good addition.

No pun intended.Thank god Sony learned from their past mistake(PS3 launch). They have enough games at launch for both casual and hardcore.
