Sony’s PlayStation Move launches today in North America and some gamers are eagerly waiting for their chance to try out the new peripheral.
No they are not, ask kotaku.
http://images.allmoviephoto... only joking
even the martians and the plutonians came to earth lining up just for move scary indeed
reading PS Blog's twitter last night, there was alot more people than I thought would actually turn up!! Like an actual line haha. Guess Move isn't a total flop after all, since it will only go up-hill from here as the great games start releasing for it.
I saw that same article lokiroo. You gotta think Kotaku is a little schizo at this point. I mean, they had nothing but glowing comments about the Move and yet they use all of one gamestop as an indication of how the midnight launch went across the country. There must be some deep seeded resentment of Sony that they can only suppress for so long.
i forgot this came out yesterday i was wondering what the commotion was in the electronics section in walmart yesterday i didnt even look
some sort of gay god of war hoodie???
I see no factual evidence that would warrant them pluralizing crowd.
Uh, yeah, that was sarcasm.
or games...so they just troll move articles -_- I'm surprised about this! I thought Kotaku's word was the way =/ I guess I was mislead yet again (as with GT5 loading time =()
cool, i hope the move sells a lot this holiday. i am going to be a little bias, and say that i hope it sells more than the kinetic.
Ya know, I was trying to buy a Playstation for about 3 weeks in CA in Orange county area and it was sold out everywhere! Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Walmart and Target are some places I checked they were always sold out BUT there was always stacks of Xbox's, the Xbox was never sold out so I'm going to go with you and say Move will outsell Kinect.
@Keltik82 i already have a ps3, and i also live in the OC (fullerton to be exact) but yea i have only seen one ps3 and it was in the new best buy that just opened up in anaheim. Also huge huge lines for MOVE midnite launch at Orangethrope and harbor, and malvern and gilbert.
Ahhh I live pretty close to you lol. I'm in the Garden Grove area. I was just in Fullerton couple of weeks ago.
does anyone know if you need to buy a special version of heavy rain to play with move, i already have this game and am thinking of picking up move later today.
I think there will be a patch when the HR Move Edition comes out.
Oh thats great news, when i saw move 'edition' i thought they might try and milk. Whats the deal with resident evil 5 gold? patch or do i need a 'move copy' of the game, getting excited now :)
Just Gold. Sadly D:
Yeah, the majority of games that are getting updated for Move compatibility are just getting free patches instead of having to re-buy the games, which is really awesome. But of course, Capcom have been on a role with not listening to their fans and screwing their customers over, so why stop now? In short, you only get the patch if you have the actual Gold Edition of RE5 (even if you already bought all the DLC for an original edition), but at least they aren't charging for the patch. I heard the control scheme is sort of strange for it though, where you have to use the Move button instead of the trigger underneath to fire..
ok, so there is a TRIGGER on the move controller... I dont own a gun but im pretty sure they have TRIGGERS to fire, why on earth would they not use the trigger for firing??
22nd of september for a free move patch for heavy rain, i loved heavy rain and was glad to hear about the patch, and it being free.
while i agree it's weird to not use the trigger for firing, RE5:Gold Move controls are basically the same as RE4 Wii (which many people liked) Check out some of the impressions from forums discussing Move controls in RE5, it's not that bad really.
a software update for heavy rain will be released around 09/24/2010, and u can just download, insatall and you are ready to go....no need to buy a new one
Heavy Rain does have a free patch. If you by the move edition you get The Taxidermist playable scene 45mins extra game time. 3 x dynamic XMB themes for your PS3 Full game stereo soundtrack Making Of videos: There are 9 Making Of videos totaling in around 45 minutes in length. They feature a behind the scenes insight into the game’s development with interviews from the development team and the game’s cast.
. The article's only provide link to the Twitter. http://twitpic.com/2pfhog
pretty big crowd tbh :) i dont know why the article is saying its a store though lol, it was a sony meet up where people get to play move, win prizes etc. not a stores release
This is always stupid. Major cities are always going to be like this, while smaller cities are going to be like the Kotaku pic., because they don't have to worry about tons of people fighting over the same item.
The population of L.A. County exceeds 13 million not 9 million. *On topic: Who cares how much Move sold though. Sony is quoted at saying that they don't expect a high volume of preorders/launch numbers. All that matters to me is that I and my 3 kids are enjoying it tremendously. I am even considering grabbing Tremble off of the PS Store for $9.99. Isn't that what this is SUPPOSED to be about? Fun and games right?
rip-ridah you know maybe you should stand up for your self more. The ps3 fanboy crowd says it's about hardcore games not fun. Like wii games are fun but not hardcore your majority fanbase for your console believes this. Oh yeah and they want the move to fail. I know crazy right?
It must be i just drove to Gamestop and they said they sold out a few hours after they opened.
screw gamestop, I went to Best Buy this morning and was one of the first to get the bundle,nav controller and a nifty flat panel mount for the PSeye. Move ROCKS!!!
You mean all of a sudden people line up at radio Shack to buy video games. Hah! The guys on the left are in uniform. They look like they are waiting on a bus for a bus-ride or going to a game. But not even one PS3 or move shirt in the crowd. I say fake.
Did you even follow the link in the article?
nice try at trolling but u failed
LOL bigpappy. Do you not see what the kids are wearing? Kratos sweaters! How is it fake, when it's from the official PS Twitter?
Those guys are wearing kratos tattoo hoodies.. Its very distinct and I want one...
The first 10 people in the queue got a free Krato's hoodie asshole.
the guys on the left are in uniform? wtf.. your dumb
lol Bigpappy, all you do is praise Kinect with false BS and bash Move. Your opinion doesn't matter in here but I'm sure Skittles will be there to listen to you. Debubbled for trolling.
Maybe if you'd click on the link... no, wait. Why am I even mentioning this? Continue hating away, just like all the 360 fanboys who called the Move a dildo.
for some reason, the release of move brings out 360 fanboys' inner pervy-wanker urges
You have every right to be enraged. It does look bad that I didn't recognize the symbol of the most popular PS3 exclusive. No offence intended. I live in the US and never heard of a Radio Shack doing a Video Game related Launch. You don't hate me because I bash the move. When it was first shown every one said it looked like a Dildo. If I disagreed with that I would be dishonest. I have never question if the move was a good controller, the only thing I question about the move, is the think of some of you that paching it into games made for the DS3 will make it better for those games than the DS3 (not saying they shouldn't patch the games. Noot saying you can't enjoy the games with the Move). I all so said that if Sony wants to penetrate the casual market, they need much better casual games. If you think that is Move bashing then I believe you are overly sensitive and way to defensive. I have also had some good things to say about the Move. It is not all negative. I have said that if I owned a PS3, I would buy one. I said it is a great second option to the DS but I could work better in some games that are not FPS (RTS, Mele and ofcourse casting magic spells).
again, your dumb
"Bigpappy 8h ago Unique on Kinect M$ getting a completely diferent game that the othe 2 consoles. Experiences you can't get anywhere else. I think that is one of M$ lines and its true." This was your comment on Dance Revolution.. a DANCE game. Is this one of your better "casual" games?
lol unique... do some research? or do you always wait till someone feed you, spoonwise
Why is it so hard to people to believe that people actually want to buy Move? Even if its not thousands of people in line who cares. Would you be happier if only one person was in line? cause I saw a photo of that already on this site. The sad thing is your view will probably completely flip come November. WOW look at all those people in line, wearing "not going to mention any specific exclusive" hoodie, going to buy that brand new peripheral. Bet they wont look like they're wearing hoodies. But wait, if theres a picture of only one person in line come November at any particular store you'll get upset and call it fake or something along those lines?
Because sony's own pr bashed it along with the fanboys yes Sony fanboys bashed the hell out of move in fear of it replacing the controller. Which is one of the main reasons they bashed the wii.
god of war hoodies??? there were like six of them right in the foreground of the line.
simple, it works and has THE games you want to play.
The move has more good games than the 360 has exclusives
PS Move = 2 Kinect = 0 :P
It is fu*** awesome !! feels so good in the hand,.. and nav is wireless and a bit bigger,.. that is so much better,.. I love it ,.. Playing ping-pong all day mofos,.. top-spin baby!! Wii Sports is crap compared to this,..
Does anyone know when the Heavy Rain Move update will come out.
I heard it was coming the 22nd of September, so in like four days I believe. I did a quick search, and I came up with this, which also confirms that it's the 22nd: http://www.cinemablend.com/...
Thanks cause I bought move to play Heavy Rain and Time Crisis but time Crisis doesn't come out till October. These were the two move games that will hold me until Killzone 3
The developers for heavy rain were working on extra dlc but had to scrap it to do move support, I've read the review on the move support with heavy rain, it a dds nothing new at all, if you played through it once you won't play through again with move, if you never played it then that's different. Still I think its lame gamers will miss out on extra content like levels characters, outfits and so on just to tack on useless move support. I see what's it's about, call microsoft greedy but this is about money, being move has no must haves, people will flock to heavy rain and resident evil. $50 for a new game or $5 , for extra content. I bet lots of developers will do this. On top of it all 3 games with added support have score scored poorly. Tiger woods 10, heavy rain and resident evil. Games can be good for it but they should be made from the ground up for it. I say gamefly added move support games.
Actually, I really don't think that is generally how it works Shady. If you've checked out the numerous articles about Move implementation into currently released games and upcoming games, it's been stated by almost everyone that it's a very simple process that usually takes only around a month to do, during which time they can still be focused on other things. And if you look at games like Gran Turismo 5, Infamous 2, and Killzone 3 are all getting Move support from release day. That should indicate that they are able to streamline the process, while also using that time to still work on other aspects of the game. No content had to be "cut" from these games, nor will others, whether they get Move support on release day or a few weeks after. Besides that, you're statement about it being about money I have to say is inaccurate, because the large majority of games are getting free patches which enable Move support (including Heavy Rain), with the one exception being Resident Evil 5, where you need the Gold Edition to get the free patch, but that was Capcom's fault, and is possibly the only game where this is happening. If anything, downloadable content is about the money, since the majority of it they will charge for, and it's usually in the $10-15 range, not just $5. In the case of Heavy Rain, some things should be discussed here. First off, we don't know if the additional downloadable content has been permanently canceled or just put on hold. All we know is that David Cage said that they had to focus on Move support first. And even if the content has been cancelled, I really don't think that they ended up not providing the extra content due solely to the Move patch. Most likely, it has to do with him having at least two other games in the works currently. The real question, is why he didn't get the episodic content in production sooner? Heavy Rain released in February, which left him a total of seven entire months to be working on both the Move patch and further episodes. Going from what was said about Move support taking roughly a month to properly implement with a small team working on it, that leaves at least 5-6 months of development time open, even with just a small team. I believe according to David Cage, his team is working on at least two other titles right now, which means that they are stretched pretty thin, and maybe the episodic content was already put on hold beforehand due to this, and maybe the Move is actually a good thing that will get the episodic content back into production.
its pretty fun. i like the sports game but i cant wait for HR patch and more stuff to come.
todd why are you slabbering utter false garbage about move being laggy . that was actually 1 of my huge worries abt move being laggy but got it yesterday and sports champions is so accurate i was actually shocked and all game demos were fantastic too its 1.1 clearly so stop LYING
First off I originally was not feeling it. I thought it was ok until into an hour in a half I was still playing sports champion archery ..lol that's when I said oh shhhh I'm addicted ! But with that said ,am I in a rush to buy it no if I had disposable income yes I would buy it !all move needs is mire games NBA 2k11 sucked with it ..lol ..on another not I have never played kinect but I believe it will be big with children you see my son doest can't yet play controller based games he is only 3 and a half.. No buttons is peefect for this age other than that I don't see myself wanting to jump around all dAy playing a game after a while that would get tiring ..I rate move 9 out of 10 only because it needs more software! I will get one soon.
the problem is that an he would be better off with an action man... No need to let a kid who has limited understanding...to play a game...
I think u went to the wrong launch. I mean u & Bigcrappy were linedup at the gay bar thats prolly why not many people showed up, just u, Bigcrappy & your dad and his boyfriend. I can see why it wasnt packed, lol.
Why do all of the guys have on the exact same jacket? I call BS!! I really doubt that this is an example of what is happening in most places. Most people that I know that have Ps3 didn't even know about MOVE until I told them about. Now I don't watch much television but have there been any commercials for MOVE. I will be getting mine sometime this week.
This was selling out at Gamestop like it was new candy NPDs will show the sale figures for this??????????????
