PS Move hands on preview with Sports Champions

Dualshockers: After watching Star Wars some kids prayed for the day they would get a motion controlled lightsaber video game, after watching Rocky some kids prayed for a motion controlled boxing game, if you happen to be that kid who watched Forrest Gump and was praying for the perfect table tennis simulator then your prayers have been answered! Table tennis is just one of several sports based mini-games included in the upcoming PS Move title: Sports Champions. Check out this video to see the game in action and to hear my thoughts on it. (Move, PS3, Sports Champions)

Looks like a major step up from the sort of thing you get on the Wii. What are the other mini-games like ?
Games4M - Rob  +   1764d ago
There is bowling, frisbee, archery and also (i think) golf.

I'll be honest though i didnt try any of the other mini-games. I spent most of my time with the game wupping the ass of my mate at table tennis. Its seriously addictive and it dosnt feel like its left to chance whether or not you will hit the ball. Just look at some of the hand movements i make in the video, the game really does track them 1:1 for spin shots or little chip shots over the net.

Rob, I watched the video.
Great footage.

The 1:1 track really impressive.
Christopher  +   1764d ago
The games included are:
Frisbee Golf (aka disc golf)
Table Tennis

The table tennis game is the only one I've been interested so far. I'm still not sold on the whole package, though.

Isn't that arena battle game included?
Slient Knight 9  +   1764d ago
@Action Bastard
yes it is, it's the "Gladiator" game, which cgoodno has listed

bye bye wii sports resort.

I figured they'd make something like this. Not that it's a bad thing because this is the kind of game that will appeal to the much younger crowd and parents procrastinating what to buy their kids. I think, even though the hardcore is included in the Move's crowd of gamers to attract, the casual crowd needs something to work with. Games like these will definitely play somewhat of role in the success of the Move when being aimed at the large population of both casual and hardcore gamers, even if it does seem like a regurgitated Wii Sports to some.

I find it ironic that ping pong gets such a big nod, I still remember Rockstar making their ping pong game, who knew?

The ability to rotate the paddle is pretty cool and you don't need a peripheral for your peripheral like the Wiimote.

only move game for 2010 that interests me and i am going to buy. Speaking of specific for MOVE games of course.
Next year
Heros on the Move
Flashlight horror game
Ape Escape
are on my list.

No Heavy Rain ? No Resident Evil 5 ?

Resident Evil 4 on the Wii was pure sex and that was mainly due to them motion control scheme. Even though the story for Resi 5 sucks in comparison i cant wait to start popping zombies in the kneecaps with a Move controller.
Nicaragua  +   1764d ago
Damn right ! Move has given me a reason to play resi 5 again, that game was one of my biggest dissapointments last year.
raztad  +   1764d ago
havent played RE5 yet. So MOVE would be a good excuse to pick it up. Archery, Gladiator and Table Tenis look very interesting for some mindless, pick and play/let me waste 10 min gaming session.
TOO PAWNED  +   1764d ago
I said MOVE specific games. Games that are built around Move. Games that only had Move added on them do not interest me. That includes RE5,HR, etc. I am going to play those with DS3, or i have already played some of thsoe and dot plan to play them again

I can't wait for the PS Move and get a feel of its ability. This game looks fun, I can't wait for what is in store for us in the future of gaming with the Move.
booni3  +   1764d ago
seems like it would be fun for a good party romp. Already killing any of other console tennis games.
Hitman0769  +   1764d ago
This title has a lot of Sports games that weren't in Wii Sports such as 2 player VS Gladiator and the 1:1 is amazing. I'm really looking forward to rocking this game out, nice video showing off a game mode I didn't know was in it at such high quality.
jneul  +   1764d ago
I must admit I was there at psn Birmingham and sports champions soon became my favourite move game, I played table tennis three times, because the move is so precise, and addictive lol
tiamat5  +   1764d ago
Oh yeah. Almost forgot about the gladiator battles. They look like they could be engaging. Maybe I should pick this one up first. Been trying to decide what game to buy first for my first Move experience. You know if Sony can get Lucas Arts to make a game with one on one battles with a light saber in you hand they would make a mint.

lool yes do if the rest of the games are as good as tennis sports champions is really going to be something special.
Bedrockk  +   1764d ago
i don't care how good table tennis is, its not going to get me to buy the Move - now, you acutally come up with a good lightsaber game, and that's a different story ...
mcstorm  +   1764d ago
I dont know why but ive not been impressed with Move (And no not because im a fan buy) Just not seen anything that looks different to what the wii has shown. The one thing I did notice is why can the bat go through the table that should not happen.
I just feel Sony have rushed move and are not really giving us any games to buy because of move support. Yes Res 5 might be good playing with move like res4 was on the wii but I dont see the point to spending over £100 to play a old game.
Come on sony give us some new games to shout about not games we have already played for 12 months.
claterz  +   1764d ago
If you wanna be impressed, go onto youtube and watch the tech demos of Move, at the moment there doesn't seem to be any games that make the most of the tech. Just watch the demos and you'll see =D
Games4M - Rob  +   1764d ago
Move tech demo's here


Like claterz says they really highlight the potential for the device.
mcstorm  +   1764d ago
Ive seen them but there tech demos just like milo on Kinect. Tech demos don't sell hardware. But only time will tell if Move and Kinect will be good.
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1764d ago
Milo is Fake, those Videos are Montages like the Ads.

There are already more than 40 Games in the catalog for Move.

Move have more potential thanks to the PS Eye, Z Axis, and is very accurate. The best Motion Gaming for Core and Casual Gamers.

@ at the forest gump comment, I watched that movie the other day and when it showed him playing table tennis i thought to myself "Man i cant wait for move to come out so i can play me some table tennis!"
Nicaragua  +   1764d ago
With a name like that i would have thought boxing would have been more up your street. Still i guess we all have to relax, even steroid fuelled communist murderers :)
Ivan Drago IV  +   1764d ago
Will Sports champions have online multiplayer! man i sure hope so, id be playing this for hours on end if it does! please please sony make sports champions with online multiplayer
Pennywise  +   1764d ago
This is the only question I want answered. Will this game have online multiplayer?
blusoops  +   1764d ago
No it does not
Have online mp. :(
Pennywise  +   1764d ago
I sure hope you are wrong. What a huge mistake.
DORMIN  +   1764d ago
Can't wait to see what the Move will be like in the future when we all drink are food from straws! :D
saint_seya  +   1764d ago
