Do we really need to sit through a health and safety briefing every time we want to play a PlayStation Move-enabled game? Sony seems to think so but maybe there's a solution that pleases gamers AND Sony's legal team...
It is more covering their backs. If the warning signs are there and industry to property or person happens then Sony cannot be sued. A disclaimer would work but these seconds long pre game notices are exactly in the way. It seems a silly rant over nothing
HEADS UP EVERYONE---iWAGGLE3D.com stated by tapping the "X" button rapidly will speed up that screen. Works every time I do it. When the MOVE screen appears tap the X button rapidly. Keep tapping. The screen will speed up. Really works! SPREAD THE WORD!
bubble up, helpful
wtf i thought everyone knew that already...XD
only works cuz ur mind is on spamming the x button and not on waiting :)
Finally an intelligent comment on an article. No one ever complained when the WII did it. People are to sue happy and businesses need to protect their investment.
first time i saw this screen i was like am i playing the wii?! it was on killzone 3. Now every game with move its annoying.
How is it annoying? It lasts about 10 seconds, are you really that impatient?
I hope it's obvious from the tone of the article that this isn't a serious, raging rant. I'm not really sat at my living room sweating with my jaw and fists clenched whenever the Move safety notices appear. It was more of an attempt to suggest a simple idea to rid the PS3 of one of those tiny little annoyances, in a humorous way. Granted, comedy isn't my strong suit :) I just didn't think "Why don't Sony add an option to the settings to disable the Move safety warnings" justified a blog post of its own.
Actually its necessary because todays sue happy culture would flood Sony's Lawyers inbox with their self-entitled requests for money after 'accidentally' being 'emotionally damaged' from smacking their social worker round the chops with the business end of a Move controller. We should all blame Sony though, actually we should sue for 'loss of earnings' due to the few seconds we had to wait for those screens to pop up, we're entitled right?
As long as there are stupid people who sues for their OWN mistakes, then yep. They should include those warnings.
Just another stupid screen we have to sit through before we can play... Its a shame some people are so greedy and stupid.
But they have to for legal reasons.
definitely true. But it's like the "online play isn't rated by EBS#* thing. They don't go through it in detail by explaining what that means. I think they could do with a line of text on another screen, without the entire photo animation showing you. something like "Motion-user beware of playing field, and related risks"
Motion control games are usually bad anyway :/ Why bother caring? You are only going to have the disk in once or twice.
Killzone 3, Resistance 3, MAG, Socom4 seems like im naming my favorites.
I was referring to purely motion controller games, not games designed for a controller then they add in motion control to please their publishers. But then that forces everybody to sit through the stupid safety message >_<
TUMBLE, SPORT CHAMPIONS, RUSE , THE FIGHT
Actually what he means is that these games work really well with Move. So not just publishers but gamers as well.
Its the same kind of warning that my radiator has. It says "Don't use in temperatures above 80 degrees Celsius".
People sue for dumb reasons these days. They spill coffee on themselves and blame whoever they bought it from. I saw a to go box which said "do not eat the to go box" on it once. WHY WOULD SOMEONE NEED TO BE TOLD THAT???
This is actually the fault of the media, rather than a "sue-happy" culture. This culture in itself was created by the media as well. The media began using this as a "what have we come to" type of outrage piece whenever they had little to report on, and it soon became widespread. They have everyone believing that if you don't put warnings or disclaimers up, people will sue you and they will WIN. The reality is much less dramatic. Most of these cases never make it past the actual filing of the case, as they are often dismissed on the grounds of there being no case to begin with or clearly over-stating the value of the damages caused. And when they do go through and (god forbid) are ruled in the favour of the plaintiff, there are usually far more extenuating circumstances to it that forced the judge or jury to make that judgement. Stuff that the media don't like to spend too much time reporting on, if at all, because it's not as entertaining when you find out that the person who apparently frivolously sued some large, faceless organization for stupidillion dollars will be scarred/crippled for life, thus spending most of their "winnings" on medical care and legal fees.
it is kind of a pain to whatch that for 15 seconds or so. i wish we could press x to skip or something
Yeah like if it says... Press X if you understand
just press x rapidly and it'll speed up..
I promise NOTHING!! I do what I want LOL
Warning labels and information screens are necessary because people are basically stupid. Disagree all you want, but it is true.
“Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!” George Carlin :)
I understand that they need to cover their behinds. But, i think they could just put the warning in th ebox, or in the insturctions. Leaglly speaking it should be enough. I find the warning a bit annoying, but it is not the end of the world.
Goodness me, complaints have reached a new low. He actually wasted time writing this. Everyone know it's there for legal reasons and you can speed through it by pressing x. I see it all the time playing Motorstorm Apocalypse even though i don't know how the move is used in the game and i probably won't use it for the game but you dont see me complaining.
i rather them show the safety screen cuz if they dnt and sumone breaks sumthin or sumone dies or gets injured then law suits and all kinda bullsh*t from the media soo keep putting them thier sony dnt listen to the stupid people who complain about everything
