No they are not, ask kotaku.

ConanOBrien2620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

even the martians and the plutonians came to earth lining up just for move

scary indeed

WhittO2620d ago

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.

Lifendz2620d ago

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

madpuppy2619d ago

Uh, yeah, that was sarcasm.

bjornbear2620d ago

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 =()

bennygunner2620d ago

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.

Keltik822620d ago

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.

spektical2620d ago

@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.

Keltik822619d ago

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.

sackgirl2620d ago

I think there will be a patch when the HR Move Edition comes out.

Perjoss2620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

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 :)

akiraburn2620d ago

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..

Perjoss2620d ago

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??

amiga-man2620d ago

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.

Ravage272620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

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.

danoman642620d ago

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

pr0digyZA2620d ago

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.

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

ABizzel12620d ago

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.

Rip-Ridah2620d ago

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?

N4g_null2619d ago

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.

Consoldtobots2620d ago

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!!!

Bigpappy2621d ago

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.

MaideninBlack2621d ago

Did you even follow the link in the article?

Windex2620d ago

nice try at trolling but u failed

DigitalRaptor2621d ago

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?

moparful992620d ago

Those guys are wearing kratos tattoo hoodies.. Its very distinct and I want one...

djreplay2620d ago

The first 10 people in the queue got a free Krato's hoodie asshole.

xAlmostPro2620d ago

the guys on the left are in uniform? wtf.. your dumb

Erotic Sheep2620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

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.

bustamove2620d ago

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.

Kewl_Kat2620d ago

for some reason, the release of move brings out 360 fanboys' inner pervy-wanker urges

Bigpappy2620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

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).

Erotic Sheep2620d ago

"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?

fooltheman2620d ago

lol unique... do some research?
or do you always wait till someone feed you, spoonwise

BrianG2620d ago

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?

N4g_null2619d ago

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.

madpuppy2619d ago

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.

writersblock2620d ago

The move has more good games than the 360 has exclusives

MGRogue20172620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

PS Move = 2

Kinect = 0

:P
