CNET: Playstation Move Review

E3 2009 officially opened the floodgates in terms of motion control on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Though Nintendo had found major success already with the company's Wii console, Microsoft and Sony were clearly hungry to get in on the action. (Playstation Move, PS3) 3/5

KZ3D + Move = WIN!

You can't go against this controller, it's not a waggle-waggle device, it's the real evolution of motion-controls applied in real games....

PlayStation Move FTW!!!

how are they a credible gaming review site?

ABizzel1  +   1990d ago
My guess is they took points away because of the launch titles.

Everything they said about the Move controller was positive until it came to the games. They had nothing really bad to say about the game either, expect that the launch titles probably aren't enough to make you want to buy Move Day 1.

The only problem I have with that is that journalist are complaining about the lack of games, but many older games are backwards compatible with Move, so it's not like there's nothing to play especially if they're a new comer to the PS3.

Eye Pet, Flower, Heavy Rain, High Velocity Bowling, Hustle Kings, MAG, Little League World Series, Pain, Planet Mini Golf, Resident Evil 5, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, and Toy Story.

Add that with the Move's launch titles and you have a good list of games to play if you're new to the PS3 and want a HD Wii.

Sony should repackage those games and sell them with a Move controller for $60 again since none of them are really big sellers anymore. Or at least their exclusive games.

Wow so many butthurt fanboys 'bu bu but Cnet is biased', we'll just wait for the reviews of all the other sites and then of course it will be Eurogamer is biased to MS, IGN is biased to MS. Probably the only sites that will give it 5/5 or 10/10 are the plethora of pro Sony sites on here run by fanboys who just want to make themselves feel good and defy proper reviewing sites.

It's just a wiimote for the PS3. Therefore, it's a waste of money.

Edit: lol at the disagrees. Face it. Sony and MS are both trying to cash in on this motion gimmick BS.

Really? Nobody here said anything about reserving judgment, people here have made up their minds, and because you're an MS zealot, you have too. Also due to your naive allegiance, you're the "reviews tell me if I'm alive or dead and if the world is round or flat" kind of robot...Good job, you live simply to be told what to think because you're incapable of conjuring up your own independent thoughts. Impressive.

Just get over it, you've lost. I don't even know what battle you're in...but you've clearly lost.

And Sienfan, you got even fewer agrees than Conloles because you don't even know the subject matter you're babbling about. Just say blah blah blah so you have a better shot. If you did an ounce of research, you wouldn't be like a toddler trying to argue a new algorithm about the theory of relativity. Meet your fellow FAILmate, Conloles.

On topic, I think I'll eventually get the Move, but right now I have a Wii. I know Move's unique, though, with the camera added and additional tech as well as HD, so, one day, yes. Plus there's going to be a slew of exclusive games in time that use it. I would also like to try it myself, and see if it feels natural. I'm fairly certain it'll do "fine" but it won't unseat the Wii in sales...there's just too much exposure and momentum there. But it's great that Sony branched out this way.

To paraphrase your comment: "boohoo sum peepulz donts likes teh moshun controlz! Jew donts noes NE ting!"

Get over yourself. Motion sucks ass. Making it more precise and throwing it in with games that are perfectly fine without them isn't going to sway opinions. For the failures like you who enjoy the latest gimmicks, it gets you wet and puts money in the companies' pockets. And yes, I'm in dire need of doing "research" on a peripheral that I'll never buy. You can thank the Wii for that because it's such an awful console with a controller made specifically for autistic children in mind such as yourself. I've had my taste of motion gaming and it was an underwhelming experience.
BWS1982  +   1988d ago
Impressive. Not one thing you said was true, worthy or remotely intelligent. You even failed to conjure up a concise or valid opinion, that's how miserable you are. You go on about admitting you don't even know what you're talking about because it's a waste of time to learn the subject matter (that YOU'RE DEBATING, MIND YOU), and then assume I'm excited for it. If you read my other comment, you'd know I'm only mildly interested in trying it some day, and never did I say it's superior or even preferred. Don't bother if you're not even reading the damn comments. WTF are you even here for, then? Autism-bashing?

How does this work: you come to argue and present yourself as an authority on something, as a naysayer, then get called out to be a fraud because you don't know the technology, THEN you BRILLIANTLY admit you know nothing about it BUT PERSIST TO STATE YOU STILL KNOW BETTER? Laughable. Simply hilarious. Instant fail. Keep it coming, you're a joke.

The fact that you also resort to turning the discussion into an autism-bashing session just shows what scum you are. That's lower than fanboy, mind you. You're just filth, now. Congrats, you're at the bottom of the food chain.

So, get over myself. Huh. I'm not the one who just put myself leaps and bounds above a group of disabled people with despicable remarks like yours. I think your ego needs the check.

Talk about leaps in logic. Autism-bashing? Just because I don't like the controller and I think it was meant for individuals who can barely control themselves, doesn't mean that I'm bashing them. If you're so offended by me pointing it out, perhaps it is you who has the problem! Where in my comment did I state "I know nothing about this controller"? Nowhere, so you must be delusional. Also, you basically repeated yourself 3 times over in every paragraph. Do you suffer from short term memory loss as well? If not, it's very pathetic and speaks volumes of your stupidity.
BWS1982  +   1988d ago
Oh Jesus. You're going
in circles now, you don't even have any semblance of an argument or even a point. It's random banter and 8th grade quips at this stage, and you've sunk to name-calling and back-pedaling when you CLEARLY admitted your lack of knowledge (I don't care if you deny it, your admission is there). And yes, you brought up autism in an offensive way, just seeing your justification is further hilarity. I'm not all that offended, but it shows your bigotry, and that you resort to such correlations to prove you hate motion. The fact you'd even think to use it to relay a point is pathetic, what are you, 15?

You lost a couple posts up, and name-calling doesn't secure any victory, so I'll take that as your graceful concession to failure since it's meaningless and off-topic. I've debated a lot of things in my life, and your attacks on the perception of intelligence leave you in the dust. There's nothing. You can't even read your own posts, let alone mine. Not one thing you said registers as coherent or valid, so I'm leaving this ridiculous excuse for a conversation to you and your intellectual deficiency. Enjoy--I really don't care about any further response, you're out of your league, kid. Good bye.

Nothing but more delusions of grandeur on your part. Please, incoherent? You seem to be pulling most of these observations out of your ass. You didn't have to reply the first time, you know. But I see that because you have little to no substance to your objection (simply that I brought up autism and you felt uncomfortable about it), you can only come up with assertions of me being unable to logically think and that I somehow get lost within my own thought process. Sorry to say, but you commit the very things you accuse me of. Have fun in lala land.

They crowned the PS3 as the best blu-ray player. They are definitely not Microsoft biased.
fullmetal297  +   1990d ago
LOL whats with the disagrees? Now lookie here:

They awarded the PS3 slim as the winner the recent prize fight after Sony reduced the price and size factor and also named it the best blu-ray player. Somebody mentioned seeing only negative comments on PS3 related but I search "PS3" and then "xbox 360" on the CNET main page and all articles received the same share of both bad and good receptions.

See fanboys, its easy to callout a website for its "bias" but all you need is a 10 minutes of searching to see whose the real conspirators are and who are ones making false claims.

CNET published articles forever about how BluRay will fail and the PS3 will fail. Don Reisinger's stuff on there was notorious! Crowning the PS3 as the best of something they've knocked for years (even if just by association) is hardly a compliment. Take your own advice and do some research before calling people fanboys who've maybe been here longer and remember the frequent headlines on N4G featuring Reisinger's rants on CNET.

This Don Reisinger character isn't even an employee of CNET and his articles shouldn't represent what CNET thinks of bluray as a whole.

IMO they gave the ps3 the crown because MS doesn't have a bluray player.. otherwise they would've given it to them...

when they had the ps3 against the 360 they gave the 360 points for the silliest things to win over the ps3.. and when they compared the 360 agains the ps3 in HARDWARE and VALUE there was like a .05 difference when the ps3 has hdmi, hdd, wifi, and wireless controllers included... oh yeah and BLURAY! so yeah they're definitely biased when it comes to sony against MS

I'd say the Wii takes the crown, it's been the biggest commercial success this gen, has motion controlled games ranked up there with the top of any gen past and present. Pushed MS/Sony to follow suit (you think there would be Move/Kinect had the Wii flopped?).

It might not be the most technically advanced, but it's done its job and done it well.

Fishy Fingers  +   1990d ago
Little dramatic, momentum has dipped but did you expect it to maintain it for the duration? A decent price drop, which Nintendo are capable of as they've always made a profit on the Wii and the sales will spike up again, especially if done during the xmas period.

Sales and all that jazz aside, the Wii crated Move and Kinect, it's Nintendos success that drove the others to follow suit, that alone for me proves that as of now and probably the remainder of this gen, Wii will be the platform synonymous with motion control.

I agree fishy
but if the competitors out do ninty at thier own game it could be a different story.

Nintendo has the sales success already, but people that are looking for wii HD doesnt need to wait for nintendo, PS MOve provides that familiar control scheme with all new sense of control.

Besides the wii is runnin off last gen hardware how long can survive, and i say survive because it isnt really directly competing with ps3 or x360.

Besides in the end it all comes down to the G-A-M-E-S..

Fishy hasn't a clue what he's talking about. Why do you think the Wii has lost momentum Cause there is competition. Why do you think MS has a lead? cause they started early and had no competition. Now both have competition and of course it hurts their sales. Wii up until now has had no competition with the controls so all they had to do was push the controls to casuals and come out with a good game form an old franchise once in a while. now they have competition form MS and Sony I bet the Wii slows down even more. Nintendo must now step up and make better games they can't rely on the motion gimmick any more.
N4g_null  +   1990d ago
Fishy we all know your right. Yet the sony fanboys are desperate for a win.

Out of all the games coming to move just fps and the gimmick bone breaking socery game are the only games they really have.

I've posted about moves limits before yet im sure every one will find out when they buy it day one lol. There are going to be some pizz sony fanboys when that happens. Oh well...

Im sure nintendo is readying the next console and evolution in motion controls and tracking past the move and motion plus limitations.

Another thing is move can not be played in different ways. You have to buy other extra parts to do that.
Jazz4108  +   1990d ago
I'm sorry guys but sony is not god and neither is ms. These motion controls and there shovelware need to go back to the wii. The move is a blantant wii rip off and kinect well its a interesting overpriced web cam. They both suck so please let sony fart so you guys can get out of there as$,
TheGoose  +   1990d ago
Wasn't Sony working on motion controls before the Wii was released? The concept with the EyeToy and colored objects or something.
N4g_null  +   1989d ago
Thegoose did you buy an eye toy for the ps 2 or 3. How did that work out? Yeah it sucked. Casuals didn't even buy it because the games sucked. All of that came before the wii then hd eye came out guess what it still sucked. Now you can spend about $70 dollars to play a little more like the wii with out key things like ir pointing, play style change mid game along with games that have sold over 10 million easy like Mario kart and Mario 5.

To those claiming it does not do depth you actualy zoom in by moving the controller forward. It has 3 gyros just like move with motionplus. And it functions as an nes controller. Yeah nintendo got all of that from Sony.

Seriously go out and try it then post here about it. It was a good try and I look forward to the upgrade because this setup is not enough. I hope fps fans can save it.

It starting to feel like Sony and ms are just trying to make motion controls suck rather than rock.

What is sad is this talk is not negative it's constructive. If Sony releases this like it is then they are shooting them selves in the foot.

It will be like red steel 1. No matter what they fix it will still suck to many. If done correctly they can compete with nintendos next controller. Yet as of right now a nintendo console launch could threaten the ps3 period making this a psp2 moment.
Seferoth75  +   1990d ago
Yes Wii clearly takes the crown to all but fanboys. Great post and you make a very valid point. Of course SOny fans blindly follow any product and claim it superior.

Remember when the Sixaxis was better than the Wii remote and the Wii remote was a complete joke? Now Sony offers something not as accurate and Sony fans ignorant of the Wii and what it can do are proclaiming Move superior simply because it is a Sony product. Truth is both use the same method for motion controls. The only difference is Move has a single sensor to calibrate with while the Wii has 2 sensors to calibrate pointer functions.

It might sale well to Sony fans they buy anything, but convincing Wii owners to buy a console that does not have Mario,Metroid or Zelda or superior controls will be a stretch.
Speaking of Mario, metroid, Zelda, I love how Sony fans think people are going to be interested in a console where they cannot play those games.

Seferoth - you're spouting nonsense !

'The only difference is Move has a single sensor to calibrate with while the Wii has 2 sensors to calibrate pointer functions.'

see here -

notice the BIG difference is the letter Z - namely Move can capture motion on the X Y and Z axis while the Wii (and Kinect) can only capture X Y motion.

This is what sets Move apart - real depth 1:1 and not gesture based XY tracking.

Seriously - I'm not talking shit here and I'm not falsely bigging up Sony - it's the truth in black and white...

4. Now Microsoft and Viacom have a strong partnership... Google Microsoft and Viacom... no doubt about this...

Yeah, you guys all see it too. I don't know why they even bother reviewing PS3 products. I just hope that people who look at their PS3 articles realize that they have a slant against the console for some reason. Because it's really just not fair to the PS3 or to Sony that such a big-name, and more or less well-respected source like Cnet always has some kind of hate to spread about the PS3.
bjornbear  +   1990d ago
its true =/
its just like MSN and their reviews. If you make an average, all their PS3/Sony related reviews ARE below the average

then again, sites like IGN (believe it or not) and 1UP and above the average, thus pro SONY

still its no secret, CNET IS owned by the competition and, believe it or not, that DOES effect things.

anyone joking about "uuu teh bias" are either too immature or too stupid to understand how these things really work (it makes a big difference)

but hey, thats business =P

Hardly any proof here. The link you provided is only a redirect link and doesn't mean they are working with each other. I did a search with a third-party program and found at least 10 URLs redirect to many other sites CNN, Disney, Warner bros, and even Fox News. The same ones who were bashing Mass Effect's "Sex Scene". Good luck luck trying to find any affiliation between MS and EVERY major news organization.

Hopefully this will teach Sony what to include with the PS4. If they focus on hardcore, traditional experiences without tacked on motion control then likely they'll succeed far more as they'd not only have the existing PS3 fanbase but the 360 one too. Let Microsoft and Nintendo ruin themselves with motion control. :) Actually... Knowing Nintendo I don't think their next console will have conventional motion control it'll have to be super innovative to include motion control. So next gen it'll be Nintendo vs Sony. Mark my words.

MAG also has Move support already... the Beta allows people to use it and those who have have been owning people...

And you can't base MAG off of the early reviews... its a completely different game now... and the Beta seems more like a sequal than DLC... the framerates better and the skill tree/ weapon store are awesome... they really have improved that game so much

k-Lan  +   1990d ago

I don't own a PS3 by choice but i've played it's games many times. It's called having friends. Maybe you're not familiar with such a thing.

MAG sucks donkey balls. Is it the worst game of all time? No. It's definitly not a good game when you compare it to other shooters no matter how many people are playing online at the same time. Have fun playing that trash. ;)
Chromer  +   1990d ago
The fact that you said you don't have a PS3 and only played it at your friends' places discredit anything that you say. I own both a 360 and a PS3 and I own MAG. Compared to the other mindless shooters that permeate both the 360 and the PS3, MAG is one of the best and deepest FPS to come out of this generation. The only reason it sucks donkey balls to you is because you 1. don't even own the game and a PS3 and 2. haven't even played the game long enough (or in your case not at all) to even make a retarded statement as such.

Of course, you are a blind Xbox fanboy so anything you say gets ignored automatically. Stop talking son.

Tomorrow if MSN site reviews move and grade it 9/10 then these bunch of tossers will claim that that's actually not owned by MS.

Let's wait for the review of Kinect before we start talking about it and it's games. Now is the time to talk about Move and i must admit, reading the review was laughable. I seriously have no idea why anybody would buy this. All Nintendo has to do is announce a price cut on the launch day of Move and Sony's motion controller is done like dinner.

Of course all the hardcore gamers who support Sony to death on N4G will run out and buy it on the first day, forcing themselves to play with this newer version of the Wiimote which they've been dissing on for the last few years. Buuu buuu BUT now that Sony made the same thing, just better, it's all good now and they all LOVE motion control gaming! lmao! I love N4G!

Move = FAIL! Disagree? Anybody want to bet? ;)

Shadow Flare.

"Everyones been raving about it"

lmao! Like who??? Your buddies on N4G? Maybe you're talking about fanboys like yourself?

"Move has been proven to be better at FPS's then dualshock"

Really! With what games? SOCOM4?? Get back to me when you show me how well it works online with games such as BC2 & MW2. Let me guess.. those games are garbage? ;)

Stay hating on Kinect duuuuuuude.

K-LAN, your judging move on THIS review? Wow. Cnet is owned by Microsoft.

Funny how you ignore every single other review which has been praising move to no end. And it has great hardcore games that support it. But selective reading is what you're good at isn't it? I'm getting move because of the likes of RUSE where Move vastly improves over the dualshock controller. And move has been proven to be better at FPS's then dualshock. Plus all the games I intend to buy have move support anyway. Stay hating on move dude. Everyones been raving about it. And we actually have great games for it.

Again, enjoy stroking skittles

Shadow Flare  +   1990d ago

Those are a bunch of reviews praising Move, none of the sites are Sony affiliated unlike cnet and ms. So it's not just ps3 fanboys

The only reason some of those sites scored move down was because the selection of launch titles isn't great. But they were all impressed with the tech, noting it was beyond the wii tech. And we know there are great games for move on the way. Littlebigplanet 2, ruse, echochrome ii and others are on my list.

Not that that's going to change your mind at all. You seem to already have made your mind up. Like a fanboy. I just wanted to show you it's not just ps3 fans raving about Move. And you're really in no position to talk. Look at kinetc. It's got nothing. It doesn't work properly and has no games for it. Even if to YOU, move is just a wiimote, the important thing is I don't have a wii. And now I can have that experience with my favourite playstation games. And btw, its not wiimote. Some of the tech demonstrations prove that.

This is one reason why I'm getting move:

Later. Enjoy skittles.

cry moar please.

The author's of review seem to resonate with that of the gaming press... very cool tech of move, but no games to make it appealing at this point. It will probably take developers a while to wrap their hands around the new tech. MS on the other hand already has a nice selection of games scheduled around the launch of kinect

BWS1982  +   1989d ago
I remember
the same whining by MS fanboys in 2006..."PS3 has no "

There are BC games, as was noted, and a dedicated launch lineup. The tech itself is what should be reviewed, and if all that's said about that is positive, giving a mediocre review just proves the reviewer is reaching. That's like reviewing a movie based on who was in the theater with you, it's ignorant.

Oh Sony fans.. How pathetic you can be. Someone didnt like Move and gave it a fair score so people who have never used it are here to correct them..

It's just so pathetic you have to laugh at you guys. This is why Sony fans are the laughing stock of gaming.
Never used a Wii but you are an expert. Never used Move but you are the expert. Oh and of course all the people who have used both and can see its not superior are just completely wrong.

Oh and kids, this is a Move article, not a kinnect article. SO what if Kinnect gets a 1. It's not MS fans that have been going around calling it superior. I love it when you Sony fanboys hype something to hell and back then when it shows to not be worthy of that hype you bring up a competitors product like that justifies you hyping a bad product.

There's only one reason you troll so much..the system you chose has no games to play. If the Wii was better you'd be playing a game on it. I know the Move is better. I have the Wii, there is no difference in a realistic motion, and a wrist flick. FACT. The Move has that ball 12 yr old boys like to call a dildo. It actually can track the ball, giving it depth. The Wii doesn't do this. I like my Wii a lot, but I have to wait for staple franchise games to play. The rest is just shovel ware. The good news now is both Sony and MS will now have their own shovel ware but in HD. The Move works. Even if you hate Sony, can you really tell me your such a fanboy, that you trust the word of a site owned by their competition.
whitesoxfalife  +   1990d ago
i dont know what part of cnet yall watches but maybe yall dont watch the prizefight in which the ps3 wins every time or maybe they have played with this move somewhere before oh wait its was from the Wii...... but im not bashing the ps3 at all like yall bashes everything xbox does..... give credit to where its do that made sony step their game up i know move will sell crazy and kinect will sell like crazy as well they is two different styles in motion gaming but really you go off what somebody else says or do you still go out and try it for yourself you know your own judgement
whitesoxfalife  +   1990d ago
f there's one thing we're learning about motion controlled gaming, it's that we're not sure this is what the hard-core gaming audience wants. As we mentioned above, the Move can provide an entertaining and occasionally impressive experience, but it's never able to emulate the ultraprecise and never laggy gameplay that a standard button controller provides.

We can't fault these console manufacturers for wanting to reap the fruits that Nintendo pioneered, we just don't know if there is a place for the technology on each of the three major systems. .......
