Has Your PS3 Motion Controller Been Idle? Here Are Plenty Of Reasons To Get Moving Again!

The PlayStation Move is an excellent video game controller with potential for great games, but sadly many that see the potential haven’t had a lot to choose from since the release of the Move in 2010. While there are some great games that make use of the Move, there are a lot that haven’t made the best use of the technology. The potential with the Move is still just that for many that want more from their PS3 motion controller. The future is bright for those that do have one (or more), though, as Sony has taken this into consideration and has some great titles on the horizon.

Sony UK Vice President and Managing Director Fergal Gara mentioned to Official PlayStation Magazine earlier this year about how the Move could have been better supported since release in 2010. “What I’m thinking is that it’s better suited towards the casual market, certainly, but we also are pretty clear that we could have done a better job on the titles we’ve had and we’ve brought to market for the PlayStat...

My moves been a bit dusty, but they can do much better they just havn't.

I'm actually surpried at this list of move games. Spiderman ? I've got to see how they do that game lol (swinging on webs?), Sorcery I really want to check out. Dust 514 free and on consoles with move thats a must! Bioshock and Ghost recon that will be cool as well, at least Bioshock will be. I hope some games get patches for move, like BF3 and Skyrim. It would be great if Sony annouces some thing really worth while to get on move at E3. It's been really lackluster but I want to se the device at its full potential.

Sony's almost blown it with Move. If they really wanted this peripheral to succeed they would have had tons of patches and made sure most of the big-name games supported it. COD, BF3, and Skyrim all should have been patched for the Move or supported from the start. Every big FPS that comes out should support Move. They could have partnered with Blizzard to bring Diablo 3 to the PS3. The Move would have worked well with that game.

Sony's missed their opportunities. Now everyone pretty much thinks of the Move as a gimmick that is hardly supported so no one's going to buy it. It's sad.

After just finishing infamous 2 with the move I really hate that 3rd party developers haven't been taking advantage of the move, especially fps developers. The move is really accurate and was a blast to use with infamous.

I do think, however, that the move might be taking up resources on the ps3 that makes it hard for devs to implement. If not then I feel that m$ is being strict with their bs parity policy including the controllers.

There are a couple of games that I really like how they use Move. One is Infamous 2. When I play that game with the Move controller, it feels like I'm playing a PC game from my couch, it's really nice for someone like me who is a PC gamer first and a console gamer second.

I also like the way it is used in LBP 2. The Move only levels have some really neat ideas that really take advantage of the controller.

Another game I have been enjoy playing with the move controller is Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny.

However all of these games can be played with the standard controller as well. I have yet to see a Move Only game that I like.

I am looking forward to Epic Mickey 2, as I really enjoyed the first game. If it comes out before the Wii U is out, I'll be grabbing the PS3 version so I can play it in HD.

Mine was a bit dusty, but I charged it up for Datura, which I'll get this week. Then I played some Killzone 3 for the first time in a long time, and that was rather enjoyable.
