Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has ramped-up the PlayStation Move activity this winter, with brand new videogame releases covering all aspects of gaming. From keeping players active to taking part in grand adventures, from medieval quests to playtime with brand new friends, PlayStation Move provides a whole new world of interactive entertainment, and to prove it SCEE has launched an interactive marketing campaign for the device.

For some reason, and I don't know why, but I have a feeling Sony is gonna push the Move is hard in 2012, with software and marketing.

I'm predicting BioShock Infinite will come out with the exclusive marketing Sony sometimes gets on EA games, with Move compatibility being emphasized. I'm pretty sure that game's gonna get a release date at the VGAs anyway, so it's probably coming Feb-March 2012.

Can't wait!

Those like me who lurrrve old skool shoot'em ups like Point Blank and House of the Dead love the Move very much so.

Hope we get a Virtua Cop, House of the Dead, Ninja Assualt, a proper Time Crisis and maybe a new Jurassic Park shooter. Good time good times!!!

I just wish the cursor on the screen wouldn't drift and need recalibration all the time.

Wake me when they start putting out more quality software for the device, not just games that support it.

Sorry, Sony, but you've really slagged behind on that one thing. We know it works great, but some of us don't just want an alternative for FPS/TPS games. We want something unique and worth the $40-50 per move controller.

If you don't mind me asking, what games have you bought for the Move? I have bought 6 games and non of them have tacked on Move support and they are all worth purchasing a Move over IMO.

Christopher1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

First, I said 'support' not 'tacked on'.

Second, here you go:

- Sports Champions - Best move game to date
- Dungeon Defenders - Good game, but not because of move
- Lab Rats - Much better w/o move
- Killzone 3 - optional
- Resistance 3 - optional
- Infamous 2 - optional
 - Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves - poor game
 - Playstation Move Heroes - poor game
 - Zumba Fitness - Move is completely useless (for the wife)
 - No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise - much better with DS3 for typical play times (1 or more hours)
 - Heavy Rain - added post reelase
 - LBP2 - really only good for builders; DS3 is primary controller
 - The Sly Collection - added on for mini-games that really suck and are just some easy trophies

Third, note that I said software, not just games. The Move has the most potential for allowing some truly unique applications out there. They demoed a load of the potentials prior to the release (look for the vids on youtube, it's easy to find them). Why hasn't Sony stepped up to make a 3D browser (even if it's just a 3D version of their current browser? How about a 3D UI? How about exploration tools such as what has been demoed for physiology and biology?

Move is really a great device in regards to accuracy and control, but they have faltered so hard on the software whereas Kinect is the opposite. It's hardware that was released before its time as it has so much holding it back (needs HD capturing and processing capabilities!), but the software support is truly tremendous.

Edit: I remember Anton, one of the developers of the device, did an awesome demo of a chameleon that would make for a great puzzle game of sorts. Truly a demo that goes way overlooked considering he demoed using two move controllers, one controlling an eye and limb and the other the other eye and limb. I mean, the demo itself just screamed the idea for an awesome chameleon puzzle game.

Here's a link to one of his demos of the chameleon demo. Not the best one, but first one I found.

What games have you bought?

fei-hung1609d ago

@cpayne93

I got:

1) Sports Champions
2) Time Crisis razing Storm
3) Dead Sea Pirates
4) Child of Eden
5) House of the Dead Overkill Extended Edition
6) The Fight: Lights Out
7) The Shoot

Other Games with Move support:

1) Infamous 2
2) Killzone 3
3) RE5
4) Heavy Rain

I've already mentioned my love for shooters like Time Crisis and the like, but The Fight: Lights Out is by far one of the best fighitng games I have played. In fact, I have given up on Fight Night until they release one with Move support sine it just feels perfectly made for that genre of gaming.

I agree though, it would be nice having more support with apps and maybe a sequel to Sports Champions as well as more light gun games.

I think that is part of the point I was trying to make, one of my main reasons for like the move outside of the Fight is the light gun games. I suppose they are not everyones cup of tea.

cpayne931608d ago

I wouldn't consider every one of those worth buying a move for, but there's a funny thing I noticed about The Fight. It got extremely low reviews from critics, yet high reviews from users, also many people with fighting experience say it is very well done. Perhaps that's the problem? Were the majority of the critics just using bad form? Trying to do it with waggle instead of real punches? Are they just too out of shape to like the game? Not sure but I will try it out when I pick up the move.

I'll wake you up when Sorcery and Until Down are released then :P

Knushwood Butt1608d ago

I agree to some extent.

I think the hardware is excellent, but software support from Sony AND third parties is lacking.

By the way, get Tumble if you don't already have it. It's Move only, and very good.

I'm buying Move when that Until Dawn horror/zombie game comes out. Graphics look great in that game.
