PlayStation Move's Ace In The Hole: PlayStation Network (RunDLC)

Like many gamers, I’m both curious and on the proverbial fence about PlayStation Move. The peripheral’s great. I had the privilege of testing it before launch and think it has loads of potential. I’m just disappointed with the initial software lineup. The flagship title, Sports Champions, doesn’t hold my attention long, and there’s little about Kung Fu Rider and Start the Party that excites me. It’s OK if you disagree, since a lot of people are happy with the device and its games. But I need something else to pry $99.99 from my wallet, some glimmer of hope that leads me to believe that Sony intends to make the most of its new toy, and it appears that I have the perfect answer. PlayStation Network.

They are already at it. They should publish majority of the Move games on PSN. Saves developers some money, and they don't have to worry about used game sales.

the guy who wrote that is an idiot
this is repost of my comment on that site;

I just created this account so I can tell you how misinformed and wrong you are:

-dead space extraction comes included on the same blu ray as the main game, it's NOT a PSN download, I don't know where you got that, on blu rays there's plenty of room and there's no need for voucher code to download stuff like it happens on the 360 with DVDs

-you need something else besides sport champions, kung fu rider and start the party? what about Heavy Rain, MAG, High Velocity Bowling and Resident Evil 5 gold edition, all these games support Move and you didn't mention any of them

-what about gran turismo 5, killzone 3, RUSE and little big planet 2? all those games support Move and you still think that PSN's 10 or 15 dollars games are Move's ace in the hole? you have no idea what you're saying

-sport champions is incredibly fun and addictive, I used to think that would suck until I got it and now I think it's great, so you shouldn't talk about the quality of games you haven't play for more than a few minutes with brief demos

Although MOVE is precise enough
that SONY want's it used in big retail releases it truly is meant to get the family crowd. Smaller $15 PSN downloadable games are much more attractive to a family buying games for their kids than a $60 M rate game imo.

As for Extraction being on disc... that is ONLY with the LE version...regular DS2 doesn't have it...it'll be a sepearte purchasable PSN game...

From Joystiq:

The PlayStation 3 version's high-definition graphics are a straightforward (if unambitious) improvement, but the wider distribution via the PlayStation Network, and through Limited Edition PS3 copies of next year's Dead Space 2, offers the greatest opportunity to connect with new players.

From the official PSN blog:

Dead Space: Extraction will ship on the Dead Space 2: Limited Edition Blu-ray disc on January 25th, and will be available separately as a PSN download.

idiot who?

The facts don't lie!

Don't buy the MOVE yet people!
"Don’t get me wrong. More games will hit store shelves in the coming months, from The Shoot to Time Crisis: Razing Storm, but PlayStation Network could hold the key to the Move’s legacy. "

so why the hell should hardcore gamers wait for trash games from those list?

Save your money, play some games for Oct:
Quantum Theory
Lords of Shadow
Medal of Honor

buy the movie dec 2010 or 2011, what is the point in buying the move whereas there isn't any hardcore titles for it?
do you really wanna re-buy Gold Edition?
or are you lucky to have a Gold edition?
are you lucky to have
RUSE? Heavy Rain?

Mind you heavy rain is not even playable with move control layout!
some point it will ask you to press and hold Circle, Triangle+Move button.
good luck with that one, you would have to put down the Nav Controller or 6 Aixs.

Also it all cost too much!
*£40 Move starter kit
*£30 charger kit
*£20 Navigation controller
*£-- bunch of piece of trash Move games such as Sports Champion.

go to the farking gym or sport centre to play a real sport.

we want hardcore games!

quantum theory, ewwwwww

Charger unit? Just use a USB cable! My mate does.

Also, hardly no games actually NEED the navigation controller yet.
Pedobear Rocks  +   1391d ago
You don't
need a charger kit or a nav controller.
jneul  +   1391d ago
Noticed reach up there....go to x360 section pls
On topic: had you noticed that maybe we have the money now for move and a game and for later months we can still take our pick from that list if we want, for example I have move and still plan on getting castlevania

Xino,i can respect your opinion, but can't agree with you.
i have move, and have had a great time with it, my mate who bought one after using it, and we have had some real tense battles in sports champions, my brother who owns an xbox ( but is no way a fanboy i might add) has spent the last 3 days trying to beat me, and has also had hours of fun, as for hardcore time will tell but Move has proved itself as great addition to my ps3 controllers.

Can't wait to get a Move for Tumble and Echochrome alone.
blackburn5  +   1391d ago
I thought of that already. Cheaper games are one of the positives of the Move. PSN games and Move games cost a lot less then ordinary games. Move owners don't necessarily have to spend a ton of money on games or worry about spending extra money to add Move functionality. But people are too busy dissing it to even mention or think about that. BTW ignore xino he is trolling by writing the same thing over and over in move articles
