How Move is better than the Wii - CNN Review

CNN: In short, PS3 owners with Wii envy can now get aboard the motion-sensing bandwagon with pride, but don't be too optimistic about the first-generation game offerings. (Casual games, Move, PS3, Tech, Wii) -

Don't be too optimistic about the first-generation game offerings.
Exactly. The hardware may be new and impressive, but its the games that eventually matter.
8-bit  +   1968d ago
Here is why I AM optimistic
The games are what matter and that is why I look forward to playing LBP2, MAG, SOCOM, Killzone 3 and so on with MOVE.

These family oriented games don't appeal to me as I don't have kids yet.

@below, How did I forget?!

The Move is way better than expected
The launch titles may be underwhelming, but Sports Champions is so much fun. I love table tennis, and the move peripheral coupled with that game is undeniably the most fun I've had with motion controls. It literally feels like Im playing ping pong.

The future looks bright, I dont care about the now. I like to buy new stuff when it comes out regardless of what it launches with.

Can noone give their opinion on why they prefer a certain control scheme for a valid reason without getting their head chopped off?
darthv72  +   1968d ago
@ the title
It's quite easy to sum up. The quality of the games. HD games vs non HD games. First party support for both is unquestionably in Nintendo's favor considering EVERY game for Wii uses the wiimote in some way or another.

Sony knows they can't all of a sudden turn their back on the regular control crowd but then again, they can't let their new wand of wonder go unnoticed as well.

They will need to incorporate a better sense of quality control on those that want to have move support otherwise it would suck. I hate games with just tacked on motion support and the wii is riddled with them.

Create the need to use one and the masses will follow.

Not sure why you are being so rude.
While Move and IR from the Wii-mote serve great as mouse alternative, its still not exactly the precision you need in RTS games.
Selecting a pack of troops in a bigger group, you don't really want your hand shaking then when you need to react fast.

The hardware and software and on point. In fact I would say it`s launch line up was better than the 360s and just as good as PS3s. SC, Eyepet, STP and Tumble are all solid games. As was RFOM and MStorm on PS3 and Kameo on 360. So I`d say it has great launch games.

And on the games department I think the PS3 will deliver much better games than the Wii did.
I'm confident in that. Killzone 3 alone with move, 3D and HD graphics is better than anything the Wii has to offer I think.
Spydr07  +   1968d ago
SMG and Zelda...

I'd rather play either of those than KZ3. KZ is just not my style and Ninty definitely has some good games. It's the 3rd party crap that kills the Wii.

SMG and Zelda... zzzzzzzzz

You are missing out on fanboyism. Your loss really. J/K

I own a wii and a PS3 with Move and I can honestly say that there is no comparison as far as the tech goes. Move is just so much more accurate than the wii mote. I am looking forward to a few wii games tho like the new Donkey Kong Country, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Epic Mickey and the new Zelda.

I bought it so my kids would could play some family friendly games. Funny thing is it gets very little use, all my kids want to play is the PS3.

It kind of ticks me off because if feel that I wasted my money.
DarkFantasy  +   1968d ago
i own a wii and what i like about it is i got my ps3 for my hardcore games and i got my wii for games i can just sit back and relax and play and it dose have some hardcore games also and i gotta say i love the virtual console NES/SNES ect. and its great for when i get tired of playing shooters
all the fanboys talking shit about the wii almost made me not get one and I'm glad i did its a great little machine my family gos crazy over it i enjoy playing the games with them im so use to playing on my own so its nice,i do not regret buying it one bit.

every new piece of hardware
NEVER has a huge line up of games out the door... Its the truth for PS2 and PS3 and also Xbox and 360... I dont play nintendo anymore so im leaving them out, i got bored of Mario.

Sony is flooded with Studios that will make a killer app within the first year, i think Sorcery looks kinda cool.

Kinect will also suffer from a lack luster first gen of software and time will tell if ppl, 3rd party studios, find a reason to make a killer app or in this case the hardware for it. MS says they have 15 titles at launch! Lets see how they fair with reviewers
Shoko  +   1968d ago
Of course the newer tech would be better than the one that was released first, unless it's a Microsoft product. Move would HAVE to be better, or else Sony would've just looked stupid and made a useless product. I like Move, and it's better than the Wii remote, but I don't get it when people brag about how it's better than the Wii's controls. I mean, it's like, DUH, ya know?
ChickeyCantor  +   1968d ago
Considering Wii-mote + motion plus are out for a long time now.
Sony had enough room to improve upon their product.
Bottom line, DURRRRRR.

I really like how they mentioned that this has been in development for a while as not to strike the "they copied the wii" flame.
Optical_Matrix  +   1968d ago
The point I keep stressing and keep getting shot down on by Sony fanboys, despite the fact people on this site KNOW I'm a big supporter of Sony. This thing lacks games. And I'm talking Move only games that make me think, shit, I can only play this game if I have I better go out now and buy one. None of the Move only games do that.
ivant  +   1968d ago
So again, how long has the Move been out?

Like aren't you clever stressing the obvious. Lacks games...ha, ha.

But if you could try sport champion, tumble, etc, you'll probably say "i better go out now and buy one"

Without move in the hand to test that kind of games, you can't really imagine what you are loosing.
Ven1000  +   1967d ago
Echocrome 2 will be sweet
The demo was marvelous.
Optical_Matrix  +   1967d ago
@ What's wrong with me stating this? I'm just voicing my opinion. I don't care if it's obvious, it's the truth, so don't try and act smart with me.
It's not been out long, but my problem is this. The Wii is already out and it's cheaper with Wii-only games that are much more sought after than games like Sports Champions etc. If Sony want this to appeal to the masses better, it needs better games for Moves launch. Don't act like there aren't plenty of people like me that would buy Move if there were more incentive (software wise) to do so.

and @n4gno. No, those games don't make me want Move. I went to TGS mate. And apart from the tech itself, nothing made me want to get Move. I just thought it worked really well with Killzone 3 and Tumble.
matey  +   1967d ago
And then nitendo come out with wiisports resort 2 and it has ultra realistic motion that out MOVE to shame i can see it happening nintendo wiimote is exact the same as MOVE for motions ect but better at pointing and controlling a on screen gun/torch ect lets see a move game do a torch like in silent hill with lighting and shadows that are incredible running at 60 fps oh move cant do 60fps i forgot that alone makes wiimote better and u tend to get 4 player plus support on wii MP games MOVE 2 player Kinect 1 player wii is the bets console out and most people will be waiting for nintendo to make Wii2 that will have the proper nect gen motion controls and Iwata is patenting everything this time to avoid copy cats like MOVE
ivant  +   1968d ago
Okay already. The Move is better. Maybe because Sony had time to improve the technology, you think?

But I will still say that they made a mistake by developing line-of-sight technology(the Glowing ball), rather then putting more research into improving magnetic technology(no Glowing ball).

The current tech is a quick fix to cash in on motion control but magnetic tech is the future. Sony better hope Microsoft doesn't see this....once they are done with the Kinect.

How anyone can say MOVE is better/more accurate than wii at this point are very wishfull i mean the wiimote has done so much its a joke MOVE has been in retail for 1 week and its better than wiimote what ever floats ur boat i know ill be backing wii because FPS games are 1on1 with Wiimote IR so not interested in MOVE im more interested in what Ninty have next because that will be the true next-gen version of wiimote not MOVE,MOVE has lag IGN review and in my opinion wiimote has made driving games better/FPS better/Platforming better/Arcade shooters better ect using a basic motion to smash a windows or melee attacks cant be bettered with more precision end of the IR is better on wii its 1on1 the tilt function is same on both and basic gestures r same on both so what does MOVE do it cant track 1on1 in fps its got lag and is to slow i think ill play Black-ops wii and Goldeneye wii ect and alot more until Wii2.
pcz  +   1967d ago
i dont envy ps3 owners with move at all.
there is no good software.

move not will take off.

when ps4 comes out with motion controls as standard, then you can talk about sony motion tech being in competition with the wii.

until then, just shut up because the wii is literally in a league of its own.

move? dont make me laugh

How long...
How long do you think it will take Sony to release a motion controlled game as good as, let's say, Mario Galaxy 2? You guessed right not in a million years. They just don't have it in them.
Sony spends four years babbling about how the Wii is no competition... Then they rip off the idea in it's entirety.

what the hell, mario galaxy 2!?! the only reason mario games get such acclaim is because its mario its got mass appeal but from a gaming point of view it doesn't do anything revolutionary AT ALL.

Go out and try move its really quite different and alot better than wii.

Are you serious? I mean it are you for real?
Shnazzyone  +   1967d ago
It may not be revolutionary
But it's incontrovertibly a very very good game. Miles above EVERYTHING that has been released or has been announced for move.

what better then galaxy 2? Is it the silly virtual pet, wii-sports knockoff or is it that they shoehorned pointer controls into socom?

Sorry the move launch lineup is ass. Slightly less ass then kinects launch titles. But still ass.

more ppl try move the more second hand wii's will start appearing.

At least
because some developers say it's expensive to develop for the ps3, that means there should be alot less shovelware. companies are not gonna be willing to risk a flop on ps3 for move.
