Technologizer: With 3D glasses around my head and a big, plastic, fake assault rifle in my hand, I did something that seasoned gamers might consider sacrilege: I played Killzone 3.
The sharpshooter definitely looks cool. I hope future games support the feature to use Move, including COD and Resistance. Love the reloading feature where you bump the bottom as if you are putting in a clip. Much better than twisting the Move like you have to do in Killzone 3, which I always thought was a little gimmicky. GG/SP did a good job with that little aspect. Actually, I think that's the coolest feature.
I could see the COD casuals going mad for this. @Below I would kill for Silent Scope!
I can see a rebirth of those types of games like Area 51, Virtua Cop, Time Crisis, and many more coming to PS3. You figure, if you are going to make such an elaborate accessory you may as well go all out and make it relevant. Id like to be gunning in those games again. Sega, Namco, Atari....get to work. edit: silent scope...YES. Maybe even a new more graphic house of the dead. They dont all have to be rail shooters but those are the ones I have the fondest memories in the arcade.
@darthv72 I would love that. and I've always wanted to play FPS with a handled model gun. Makes me wonder why Namco aren't making Point Blank with user generated content like LBP.

I think if they ever implement Move controls into shooters they should somehow keep everyone separated to keep it even. Move players and controller players would be an uneven match. I would like to try games like K3 with the Move though.
Big tip, shoot from the hip when using Move
All I see is blah blah blah, I want to see a video with someone using the rifle now just words.
I get that this is an article from a site that isn't just gaming...so the writers are probably purposely more vague... but...all this said to me was: playing killzone 3 with a completely different controller, and completely different mechanics...did in fact...make the game...different... and its worth pointing out...GG already confirmed that using the move (and/or this controller with it) can be customized nearly completely...you can turn off ALL auto-aim functionality and have a true 1:1 aiming situation... its how you pan that everyone wants to see in action...and will pretty much make it or break it for most...they have described it numerous times (aiming off screen i guess)...but we want to see the acceleration of screen panning and stuff to see if its going to work...
@ Alpha You seem like a gamer I'd like to whoop up on in...something. Plus, the Dexter avatar is always a win. PSN/XBL: SuMizzle
It does look flipping cool. Ive given at least 10 hours of MAG time with the Move and learned to really dig it. It took me a good few hours to get used to it but it gets really intuitive. I don't really like this article. I understand it's a personal opinion, but the author blatantly says he only played with it for a very brief amount of time. Apparently most of it was spent in cover, too. I don't know, i'd rather a journalist take some time to properly assess anything, rather than all these "Previews" that seem to accompany every Review. Ah well.

@fooltheman It's a feature built into the peripheral.
aha...So in killzone 3? ^^ thanks for answering btw I understand now..I watched the vid of the gun... yeah indeed... it way cooler... It's more than just a plastic gun...
@ Alpha-Male22 Hmmmm..... maybe. Not a big fan of these add on parts but this one might be worth a shot. I'll think about it.
I wanna play KZ3 this way, casual or not I wanna shoot people in the face ;)
Me to, i wanna shoot people in the but ;)
They sharp shooter looks really cool, I wouldn't mind using it for a rail shooter like Dead Space Extraction, but for KZ3 I like my Move naked.
..Well you can turn the auto-aim off... no-one told him that... that would make it less arcadey
