I'm pretty sure that Sports Champions is way better.
Honestly, I'm just waiting for Dead Space 2/Time Crisis to show us how motion gaming is done :D I'm not really too into SC or WiiResort
Time Crisis with the PlayStation Move seems to be really fun.
Time Crisis is great, cant wait till it comes out. However I have to disagree, although I really love Championship Sports, Wii Sport Resort is much better imho, except for the kiddie Wii Graphics, there is just much more to do. With that said, Gladiator Duel on the Move is the most fun I have had with motion controls since Wii Sport Resort, it makes me dream of playing a Move enabled Demon`s Souls.
lol, Demons Souls with move, that would be kind of fun, but extra hard.
@montrealien DS or any other action RPG for that matter. I can think on ESV. A little more on topic: Looking at those minicollection being compared ultimately resume the audience they are aimed for and the type of console they run on. I'm so glad PS3 owners can experience motion control which such fidelity and maturity. Gonna get my MOVE. @Trebious Dont read too much into that comment. Remember this is IGN being polite.
because it's too realistic ... ... ... .. . .. ... ...
Lol! ..because you can't play Table tennis in real life, they should simplify table tennis in motion gaming -.- Great Logic Greg! And here we though Sony was pushing 'Accuracy and Precision' for no reason -.- If they wanted to make a gesture based game, the PS Move (w/o the PSEYE) would have sufficed.
No, don't take it the wrong way, he has a point. which I'm sure you'll understand when you get your hands on it and try. There's a reason Nintendo has the game guide the characters on screen in certain ways. When you get THAT realistic like the Move is, it's incredibly hard to accurately judge things when you're not actually hitting something but rather looking at a TV screen as your base of reference. It's a lot harder to judge depth and how to swing etc. when you're not actually hitting anything. When it gets that real, because of the fact that you're trying to operate in a virtual 3 dimensional space projected on a 2 dimensional surface, it gets difficult. It's hard to explain, but i'm sure some of you will see when you get your hands on it. Now if this was on a 3D TV, OMG it would be incredible :P. This isn't a knock on Move at all, the technology is incredible and I can't wait for some killer games, but the developer DOES need to help give the player a little leniency and help correct things just a little. This is a video game after all, not a virtual reality thing, which is what makes Wii so approachable to casuals.
"..because you can't play Table tennis in real life, they should simplify table tennis in motion gaming -.- Great Logic Greg! " You're not that bright are you? The UserInterface is suppose to be intuitive, but if the de game is limiting itself to pro's only it takes away the FUN of enjoying a GAME that shoul be played by everyone.
The table tennis on Sports Champions is simplfied, just not as simplified as Wii Sports Resort. It's very responsive, very engrossing and it really matters if you're playing a fore hand or a back hand. I'm terrible at table tennis in real life, yet I managed to pick it up quite easily with the Move. Sports Champions is very pick up and play, it's just deeper than most motion games.
I just picked up the package but I have to wait til it charges. :(
i just played sports champions using my brother's ps move and game. i was impressed. miles better and accurate than wii sports resort. im afraid im going to my friend's wii night next Sunday i will show him ps move and let him decide.
I have both (got my move today), and Sports Champions is a better experience. It plays better and looks better.
I agree with them about the personality of the Wii. The sports champions does have just normal characters but the Tech is more advanced.
I did hope to see Home character integration (I can finally use that white knight chronicles costume for something then!) But, the Sports Champions did lack personality (judging by what I've seen)
To be honest I don't want that Mii thing. I think Sports Champions is very fun and also very accurate as it is. But just my oppinion Below: You do get to customize. You win extra stuff like fx a tennis ketcher in table tennis and other clothes for the characters by winning games..
Oh, I know the game is great. I was hoping for just more customizations of characters (even if they gave you the ability to customize the current characters would be awesome). I'm really looking forward to trying out archery when my Move arrives Honestly, I hated playing the Wii sports games... it was quite frustrating getting owned by my 7 year old niece xD
This is my problem with Nintendo in general. The games are all so "cutesy" with that overly cheerful synthesized music... five minutes of that, and I want to strangle a kitten. Oddly enough, I have always been known to be rather calm and "mello", but for some strange reason these types of games trigger a seething rage from deep within. As far as Sports Champions lacking personality, that was definitely a design choice. I personally prefer the silence as it seems more realistic and really allows you to get caught up in the game. At least that is my experience with it thus far.
Sports Champions is by far better as a sports game. Don't forget they're kinda aimed as SPORTS games not as PARTY games. Sports Champions if you have a game of table tennis with someone else it's a game of skill + power. You beat someone at Sports Champions then there is more of a chance you'd beat them at the real sport. Wii... Not so. I disagree with Miller's point about Sports Champions being bland. The environments are pretty, gorgeous water graphics, and character models make it seem more serious. This is like EA Fifa vs Sega Soccer Slam. They both have purpose, they are in the same "field" but they're not the same game.
I agree with you all the way.I own all three consoles and I just picked up Move tody and Im really impressed with the 1:1 motion and the graphics.I cant see how Miller sees bland when the enviroments are beautiful with rich colours and texture.What does the WII offer???No hand MIIs with blahh cartoony trees.I always said that it looks like the MIIs are knock offs of the hotshots series.The Move is family orientated but without making it look to silly but more of a true sports game that can be taken lightly and seriously.I do give credit to nintendo for what they did with motion controllers and family games but they where always one step behind to catering to all gammers and thats where Sony has done the the right thing.There trying to make everyone happy without stepping on toes.Sports champions is a wicked game with different variety that works great not at 80%.Pick the Move up if you want to see how fun it was meant to be with true motion contolers.
both are good With MOVE i had to actually reach forward or back to play, you can't do little flicks like with wii games and they respond with them. Sports champion is really good, i am loving it
Yeah, it's more precise.
I've never played a Wii so i can't comment on that game but what i would say is that Sports Champions is a very easy pick up and play game if you want it to be but if you delve deeper then you will be rewarded , you can do so many different shots in table tennis and disc golf , add backspin , topspin , bend round obstacles , or you can just swing around the bat and throw the disc , it's both easy and deep , very impressed with the tech.
Why does Wii sports have more personality? Because they have armless fat guys? Anyway even if SC is better the SR no one would ever really admit it. Sony has to practically bend over backwards to proof themselves this generation despite their years of experience and successful game and console history.
Sports champion..is aimed at a more adult fan base ....I was playing today and I was really really into the game ..table tennis is why I bought move..I was slicing hitting drop shots slams..it felt great..but my 4yr old son didn't have a clue..but start the party demo is amazing he was swatting flies ..drawing pictures and smashing things amazing and he loved seeing himself on tv...I never got this feeling from wii...I'm very impressed with Sony move..there is something for every1 in da family..
You bought move for table tennis? You fit into the crowd who bought Wii for the Wii Bowling... Are you sure you're a gamer? Come on, I was being sarcastic. If he weren't a gamer, he wouldn't own a PS3. I'm just giving him a little crap, that's all. No offense intended. My point was there are a lot more games for Move than table tennis. If anything, I'd buy Move for the other games and Sports Champions would just be icing on the cake.
A table tennis table, paddle and balls require a LOT of room, a decent amount of cash: http://www.google.co.uk/pro... (more than the £50 starter pack of Move) and there isn't going to be a waste of space if you decide you dislike the sport. I too bought Move for Table Tennis as I loved how deadly accurate it was, but it wasn't exactly the SOLE reason just the reason I knew I'd love it/wanted it launch day.
sport champion technically above the wii, but fun factor is on the same level for both.
I def think that Sports Champions is better which also makes it more fun. The biggest reason is that I think the Wii motes are laggy and the Move very precise which gives a better experience in all. Wii sports is fun also but imo Move is more fun with better accuracy and options. EDIT: Can someone pls bubble me up? I lost all my bubbles on Move's EU launch date praising move over Kinect and got slammed and ripped for all ma bubbles :/
bubble up for everyone
Both will be collecting dust after 2 weeks.
Sports championship makes wii sports go wii wii all the way home. Using your own wii character means nothing to me, it really doesn't change anything or add more to gameplay. If you want your kids to learn how to do real sports the right way, move is the best thing, if you want your kids to sit and shake their hands the wii.
LMao how lame. BTW waggle doesnt work in Sports resort. Now that I know you havent played it though you are just another example of someone who is only impressed by Move because you are completely ignorant and blindly devoted to a single company. Also. If you want your kid to be good at sports, sitting in front of a TV is not the way to do it.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... and for the waggle test http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Jnuel, Im not saying those videos dont show how impressive Move is, but those videos are BIAS. The guy didn't take into count that the game is DESIGNED that way. EA also put a cap on motion+ because the realism of moving your racket in their tennis game wasn't fun due the skill you had to have. Sure Motion+ lacks some features comapred to Move, but you can bet your ass on it that games won't take the 1:1 in every context because its jut not fun to many. It Requires some skill to be good at playing some kind of game. You can keep posting those videos but if you can't understand what im trying to say you fail hard.
"If you want your kids to learn how to do real sports the right way" YOU SEND THEM TO A DAMN SPORT SCHOOL. You sir are a horrible fanboy LOL
If you want your kid to play real sports the real way you make them go out and play real sports

Ur a Lame if u want to carjack some1 don't do it on gta...na just go outside and do it...play call of duty...naaaa go outside and shot the some1 ....get a life idiot
Lol dude can't a guy post in a article without being attacked? Was what I posted so offensive?
Yes cause playing sports outdoors is totally just like carjacking.. Only a Sony gamer could say that and think it was valid.
I'm loving sports champions. MAG with move support is hard a all hell. Im playing exactly like when i started the game. I'm getting better though. I can aim like a pro when standing still, but moving and trying to readjust the aim is hard. But feels more... fun than the DS3. Tumble is awesome. Flight Control isn't too shabby either.
There is always a killjoy in a group and I guess you are it Capdastaro
thx but i pass
I didn't know Wii Sports ran at 60FPS. O.o Impressive for a PS2 dressed up like a Mac.
I like both but the move is by far more precise.
Every time another article about it is put up, it makes me want to get in my car, drive to Best Buy and pick one up. Just a couple of questions. How far from the Eye do you have to be? Because there is not much room between the end of my bed and the furniture my PS3 is on. I could always play it on the PS3 in the family room, but people are usually using the tv or the PS3 to watch a movie. Also, does the Eye need to be at a certain hight with respect to the controller?
it depends on the game, for example on sports champions you definitely have to be 8ft away, but on start the party it likes you to be much closer(as it only needs to track the upper body)
Yes wii is the only system that has nothing hindering ur experience with wii u can play game almost right next to tv u can go in the garden and still wack the ball u can turn ur back on tv and still play why because wii doesnt use a camera on tv to watch ur every motion
The Wii is great. However, as the video points out the tech is much better on the Move. It is going to be interesting to see how Kinect turns out. I have all three consoles and will probably still end up getting motion controls for each.
The tech isnt better on Move its not trust me there are things wiimote can do with IR camera that cant be done on Move as well as Wiimote has memory/speaker/rumble/mic ect all without a nasty camera on ur tv ect all move can do is put u in the tv with its camera ect thats it plus move looks kiddie a glow up ball on ur controls NO THANKS plus all this nit picking ill enjoy real FPS controls in Goldeneye and Black-ops until the real successor to Wii hits in late 2011 early 2012 that will clearly have superior controls to any device before or after it because Iwata has stated patents on everything next time.
Remember wiisports is suppose to be forgiving so if sports champions is more precise then so be it but its not hard to better something thats been out for 4 years specially when u use there concept and add a few tweaks but i say between M+/Move there is no clear winner in precision end of and with certain motions like driving F12009 ect u wont improve on that unless u put force feedback in top/bottom of Move/Wiimote same with basic gestures for smashing windows combat ect u cant make that any better with more precision end of but IR on Wiimote is better than what i have seen in Move in Killzone/Socom demos by far Wiimote IR faster and more precise in FPS its a fact and time will prove me right on that because IR isnt a motion its the Wiimotes way of pointing and its as precise as it will ever be able to get Move is like your dragging the pointer/gun along the screen it doesn follow ur quicker reactions so Wiimote=best FPS controls/best Driving controls and Black-ops/Goldeneye will further prove Wiimote best FPS controls,Trackmania will have better Controls than F12009 and u cant get better Driving controls on Move only equal so really the wii has Blackp-ops/Goldeneye/Trackmani a/NBA jam/PES11 all using motions and IR no Move games will come close to them this year.
This game seems to have alot of reports of lag making the action difficult. I thought it wasn't supposed to do that. If it does have the lag people are claiming it might just kill move before it even starts. No matter how much the sony fanboys try to rationalize it.
table tennis is easy until you have to fight with a the final boss, which is a robot in gold cup
