Sick of seeing Move against a white background with stars shooting out of it Chronic Reload stuck it on a carpet and took a photo. (Playstation Eye, Playstation Motion Controller, Playstation Move, PS3, Sports Champions) -

The calibration can be a pain in the ass sometimes, but overall, this is one nice piece of hardware!

don't freak out when you take your tv, ps3, and move outside and try to play a game....

Im pretty sure this man (Cevapi) was being sarcastic
hakis86  +   1564d ago
I hope it was sarcastic
But you never know! A few weeks back some idiots were outside in the sun with their beercans and PSMove - and "OMG the calibration doesn't work!!!" (although the move kinda worked, haha :-) ).

Not only did this thing not work well outside in bright daylight, its performance was terrible underwater when I tried using it at a pool party I just threw. Major disappointment.

Because taking your 'TV' and Ps3 out in the sun makes soo much sense..
esp. if you are a HDTV owner, I doubt you'd want to move it bcoz you feel like playing Move outside..

*sighs* Only if SOCOM4/Dead Space 2/K2 would come out earlier I wouldn't be stuck mainly playing Demos until their release! >:)

OMG i just tried it today in NYC
The calibration is only takes 5 seconds........OFF TOPIC i was playing the Glladiator and the archery with TWO MOVE and i like it how it feels.... shoot is amazing too the only game that i didn't pay attention is the Kung Fu Rider and "get fit will mel B" so far i love the move

"Playstation Move for Playstation 3 is Available this Wednesday the 17th September for €39.99 stand alone or €59.99 bundled with the Playstation Eye"
Somebody needs to look at a calendar more often.

Big fail
WildArmed  +   1565d ago
lmfao +bubs

I think the guy is still stuck in '08.
17th Sept was a Wednesday in 2008.
T9X69  +   1565d ago
Well at least they got the actual date right of Sept 17, that woman on Fox news said the 19th, but then again the way she was talking, she seemed a little "slow".
WildArmed  +   1565d ago
Major retailers are listing it as 17th Sept 2010(!)

While SONY is listing it as 19th Sept 2010*

So actually, the Fox News 'reporter'(i think that was the word you were looking for ^^ ) was right on the mark

Ahh I see, well either Sony is slow and don't know their own release date, or major retailers are stupid lol.
DigitalRaptor  +   1564d ago
Hello? Region specific relase dates anyone?

Mainland Europe - 15th September
UK - 17th September
North America - 19th September
Japan - 21st September
WildArmed  +   1564d ago
Actually no..
US has both 19th (via Sony)
and 17th (Via major retailers)

It would be cool if you could detach the glowing ball and throw it around.
memots  +   1565d ago
Would you like to smack those balls around too?
glowing balls excite you?
Army_of_Darkness  +   1565d ago
oooh yeah, super cool..
Oh yeah man! its the smartest thing ever!! spend $59 for the move controller just to detach the glowing ball and smash it to little itsy bitsy pieces!!!
F#@Kin brilliant idea bro......
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1565d ago
If that happen, then Sony would sell Glowing balls to buy for less than $5.

Ya and M$ would sell them for $50, also just curious, would the ball end rip or detached easily, I've never had those balls in my hands(ya i just did that)
darkequitus  +   1564d ago
I guest I have been off the ball. I did not realize it was being released so soon.
I want that Sorcery game, so it is going to be a $130 + game investment. I put off buy until its release date. They may have a bundle then.
GrooveChampion  +   1564d ago
Wouldn't it only cost $140 since it's a first party game and you don't need a nav-controller? You can use a dualshock/sixaxis instead.

The Sports Champion bundle is $99 right now. Sorcery is first party and supposedly those are going to be $40 if it's move only.
darkequitus  +   1564d ago
I did a dummy runny holding the sixaxis in my hand. I don't like it. I'd prefer to spend the $30 and get the sub-controller. I suppose there is no harm getting the sports bundle now and the sub when sorcery comes out.
madpuppy  +   1564d ago
I just paid off my pre order
for two move controllers and one nav controller, I am left handed and I don't know how good it would be for me to try to use a dualshock rather than the nav.
foss3  +   1564d ago
My preorder has been in..
Hopefully it will arrive Friday. Amazon has it listed as going out on the 16th for delivery on the 17th.

I already have a PS EYE but I got the bundle anyway since it's $10 less as a bundle rather than to get them all separately and this way I can put the other PS EYE with my 2nd PS3 in my bedroom.
Father Murder X  +   1564d ago
I am ready to move!!!
I am definitely getting it. Motion control without playing a kiddie game is all good to me. Are they including batteries?
Daver  +   1564d ago
no batteries needed, theres lithium battery in it
CrzyFooL  +   1564d ago
Who the fuck plays Playstation outside!? Seriously.
MacGamer  +   1564d ago
cant wait for mine to get here...
