And how Sony could have owned motion control six years ago.
let's hope that PS Eye and PS Move are a success (sales). They are a groundbreaking piece of tech.
fantastic read! day 1 buy for me.
The 15th can't come any sooner :D
Oh, NOW a big time site brings up the 2004 conference. Took them long enough... -_-'
That was a very good read. Very thorough. They say that only bundling 1 move controller with ps3 is a mistake because it limits how many people can play game where you need 2 move controllers. But in truth, I don't see that as a problem. Most house holds that will buy move are going to have at least 2 move controllers for multiplayer games. So if there's a 1 player game that requires 2 move controllers, they should have 2 in the house anyway. I think Sony only included 1 controller for that reason, and that if people buy move, they're probably willing to get another controller with it. So I don't see that as a problem Great article though. Had everything from the years of research that went into it, it's huge raw potential, and the ways it surpasses the wii. Excellent
if any1 expects something innovative,something special or something that actually works properly to come out of microsoft then they need a reality check NOW because i think their brain has RROD too. just over a week to go now for the MOVE. ;)
No "case" needed. I've seen MOVE in action plenty of times for myself, have decided it isn't just a gimmick and that it can actually contribute to the evolution of gaming. MOVE presents it's own case very eloquenmtly.
Duke Nukem looks even better on a Sony TV. ;)
MEANING SONY ALWAYS WANTED MOTION CONTROL TO BE A BIG OF THEIR FUTURE CONSOLES
Good and long article. PS Move has lots of flexibility, can't wait to try PS Move with 3D.
That was an amazing read, one of the best articles ever posted on n4g.com. All gamers should be in here reading this story. Basically Sony's management screwed up on what Marks was trying to develop and let Nintendo beat them to market, and it's good to know that they could have brought out a Natal like product but decided not after testing it. Lets see if Sony can vindicate themselves. Move is Day one for me. Can't wait. Nice find Kors.
Yeah, it is pretty clear Sony screwed up big time here and I'm uncertain about PS Move's future. Sony had the EyeToy and the Wii style motion control market. Instead, Wii took the latter market and MS is taking the former market leaving Sony with a sort of hybrid system. Hybrid system might be superior, but everything indicates uptake for this device will be slow. Uptake needs to be fast for developers willing to put 18-24 months into developing games for it. It is a mixed bag and we will see.
DF writes a well researched and factual PS Move piece, and suddenly they are Sony fanboys. Usually they get labeled the other way around when they are doing game PS3/360 game comparisons. Just goes to show that fanboys on both sides don't react well to any positive news about their opponents consoles. Very interesting and well written article from DF, as usual. Hope we can drop the whole fanboy stamp on them now, but considering what I wrote earlier it probably won't happen...
Very well written article. I think Move can and will do well. It may not have many big games at launch but Sony has more than enough studios that can and will utilize the tech to the fullest and show gamers why they should buy Move. Even just implementing it into games like SOCOM 4 and KZ3 is enough for me to be excited for it. Also with the 3rd party support they have already gotten and will continue to get is going to really make motion gaming stand out on the PS3. For 3rd parties my two must have Move enabled titles are Ruse and Dead Space Extraction.
MOVE + SONY = AMAZING
That may explain the huge change in management. Back then the Six-axis was released - should have been Move - so heads rolled when Wii took the market.
