With Sony yet to deliver that triple-A PlayStation Move experience, PSU.com ponders if there's any hope left for the motion-sensing peripheral.
i used it for heavy rain, with killzone 3 it worked actually very very well, now sorcery looks like it will be a good move experience. but i would love it if battlefield 3 used it, that would make it probably almost an everyday use out of it.
I use it exclusively to play Killzone 3, and Socom 4. I tried it on Heavy Rain demo and it's more intuitive than the dualshock and it was good with Resistance 3 after the patch to fix the iron sights. Even as much as I enjoy the peripheral with my preferred game I expected it to be a novelty that would be supported only through exclusive content. When it's not mandatory for 3rd part developers it's an afterthought. I'm interested in getting Sorcery eventually but it I didn't already have a Move I don't see much out there that would have convinced me to buy it other than my desire to have a go at motion controls without buying a Wii.
i may get socom to try out the move with it, it really was a fun game. i remember watching "move" gameplay for it, and it looked promising.
@ himdeel "I use it exclusively to play Killzone 3, and Socom 4" LOL im sorry buddy i just had to laugh i never actually thought anyone would ever say that "fanboys"
Killzone 3 is honestly better with move. It allows you to lock on to targets ONLINE. Although it only holds the lock for a few seconds before going back to manual 1:1 motion aiming. It is seriously amazing for sniping though ;)
I really like Move... damn the haters!!! While I still use a traditional controller for shooters, I got Sorcery yesterday and it's all kinds of fun. I also played No More Heroes, Medieval Moves, Dead Space Extraction, House of the Dead and many more with it. It really is the most precise motion controller on the market, and I own all three motion controllers. I hope we see more games built just for Move like Sorcery. But if there's one hardcore game I'd like to see get optional Move support, it'd be God of War. It could play like Sorcery with the navigation controller to control Kratos and the wand to f#@k s#!t up with.
Killzone is awesome with Move!!! I got it just for the KZ3 release and it was so enjoyable playing through the campaign with it! It made some gameplay scenes much more enjoyable. In MP all i found it helpfull for was shotguns and snipers. For the other weapons i would have to do a lot of sensitivity tweaking to make it work for me.
@crzyjackbauer I used the DS3 once to play KZ3 in coop mode and it was horrible, how anybody has fun playing with those old, clunky and slow controls is beyond me. One day you will come to realise that playing a shooter by physically pointing and pulling a trigger is better in every single way than controlling an on screen reticule with your thumbs.
Sony needs to advertise it more, thing is not going to sell itself.
@ JhawkFootball06 That's a good point. When Sony drops the price of the PS3 sometime this year, they need to re-launch Move, bundling it with the PS3 and promoting the hell out of it. Sony has already proven the PS3 is a great console for the core gamers, it now needs to attack the casual gamer market. There are plenty of great casual titles for the PS3, Sony just needs to focus on advertising to the families. Oh, and we need Kevin Butler back.
nobody plays Killzone 3 multiplayer anymore :( it was my best motion control experience with Sports Champions and Start the Party.. Great device needs great games, or else it's worthless !! I hope they aren't gonna focus too much on casual with the dancing titles and they will announce some good stuff for this year. Let's hope so !
Lots of people play, you most have not been on it lately. You forgot that Killzone 3 mp is on PSN for $15. That got alot of people playing. There's people that still play Killzone ect. People will always plays all games, because people don't always have money for new stuff.
i tried last week and a few days before that and it takes a long time before i can join a game with max 4 players :'( i'll give it a try tomorrow thanks for the info :) if some want to play feel free to add me : abzdine
Move was pretty much dead on arrival.
The Move implementation in SOCOM 4 is very good too. Much better than Resistance 3 IMO. Still, neither beat Killzone 3 with the Move, which rocks. On topic, I think there's plenty of hope. I recently dusted off my Move for Datura, which I enjoyed. Then played some more Killzone 3. Next up is PixelJunk 4am and Sorcery, which I pre-ordered. I may even get Ghost Recon if they implement Move well.
Ghost recon doesn't have proper Move implementation, it's just that pointless gunsmith mode like kinect. It's ridiculous, I had considered getting it too because I thought it was Move enabled but it is not to be.
Really? What's that? Can you elaborate please? Also, for anyone who disagreed to my comments, I hope you're enjoying your Resistance 3 Move experience with totally gimped iron sight patch.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Just looks like an excuse to add a Kinect feature to me, then to include a Move version without implementing in game Move controller options is just insulting.
Thanks for the link. Ugh, if that's all it's going to be then I'll probably pass. Why would they not implement it for the game??
I honestly don't think there's much hope for Sony period. They are a sinking ship that I would not put money into as there future according to analysis is very grim and risky. So Move of course will fail without the parent company but wll most likely go down before Sony does
Try resident evil 5 and tumble
Yeah, the games that are being released for it. I'm glad Sony isn't forcing every game to utilize the move or focusing mostly on the move and casual friendly games. Basically I'm glad playstation isn't nintendo or Microsoft where those companies main focus isn't the core gamers.
If no third party support, then there is no hope. But there is so don't count out the move just yet!
After playing KZ3 with Sharpshooter, I'm never buying another FPS this generation that doesn't have Move support. Move's the only thing keeping the shooter genre alive for me. As far as everyone else, I can't speak for them.
Bought the sharpshooter day one, could never get used to it.
you have to calibrate and work on it mate.
The first time I used it, I felt like going straight back to the store and returning it. Couldn't aim for my life. The cursor was flying all over the place despite my efforts to stabalize the gun...but after three days I got used to it and I loved it. It's a new control scheme that you aren't used to. Of course, your not gunna be a pro Day 1. As far as settings, set everything to 0 and set the turn speed to 70. And when you calibrate, make sure that aiming FEELS good. You should be able to get the reticle in the middle of the screen with little effort. If you have to arch the gun upwards just to get the reticle in the middle of the screen, then you calibrated it wrong. EDIT: Btw, not sure why your getting disagrees. There are plenty of people out there that can't get used to Move.
iwaggle.com had a tutorial that changed my Killzone 3 career. The person or persons that run that site are nothing short of brilliant. And Sorcery has been a blast...
Wth. So it must be Move players that crush me in Killzone. I've gotta try this "sharpshooter".
That could be, pulling off head shots with the Sharpshooter is so easy it feels like cheating.
What a pathetic article or rather opinion. I get owned by move players every day, so why "hope" for something that is?
I want another sports champions !!! They need to stop treating it like the wii controller, its much more capable. There is a large list of games but those games are just plain bad and you wouldn't even want to play regardless of controller used, or they just use the tech wrong. @MistaDonzie - Yea i actually want to get that, i will soon.
The Fight Lights Out is the BEST display of the move's capabilities imo
Bad calibration process but great implementation of the motion controls !
I agree, I still use The Fight as part of my workout routine from time to time. Do some sets, hit the bag/dummy, and fight a few chumps. The game wasn't perfect, but the accuracy and 1:1 movement really can't be beat!
I picked up TF:LO I thought it was a big waste, it would work great one day then the next it was trash. I got rid of it. One game no one mention that had move support was M.A.G and it was so awesome, it was so Over powered its not even funny. I wish all devs would get the Move working because it's way more fun.
I miss out the Bestbuy mayhem specials!!
PixelJunk 4AM is the only Move game that matters... and it's not even a game.
Its a stellar app, just wish you could control the tracks not dropping out (being timed).
I stopped reading at... "With Sony yet to deliver that triple-A PlayStation Move experience" You'd think these bloggers would actually do some research before making themselves look like retards.
Sports Champions 2 FTW.
with online multiplayer please! If the first one had it I would still play that game. The higher levels of table tennis were intense, lol.
"With Sony yet to deliver that triple-A PlayStation Move experience" um, I am assuming they are just ignoring the numerous move compatible games like killzone 3, LBP2, Heavy Rain, and so on. if it isnt "move only," does that mean no one with a move will want to play it? no
Your right but at the same time why would I go out and buy move to play games that I can play on my DS3? Even if they do feel better with Move the fact still remains that you have the option to play them with a regular controller.
I guess if you count those as move games, then I guess skyrim, mass effect 3, and ghost recon can count as kinect games
Are any of those games more intuitive with the Kinect than without? More to the point, arbitor listed three exclusives and you fire back with three multiplats. In this way, you see that Sony is supporting the Move with AAA titles, while it's third parties that are doing so for Kinect. I mean, you could have at least put Forza on the list.
can you play skyrim, mass effect 3, and ghost recon with the kinect as your sole controller? no with move games you can. it is fully integrated, not just crap like voice commands. there you go. case closed
well they finally supported it with sorcery which actually dose look interesting but they need more support
Sony has no clue how to support stuff they sell with a lot of show at first. Move is laying around here, its a nice glowing disco stick though. Sony needs to make more exclusive content for it, not some dumb patch for a game where DS3 is used too and almost everytime the better device to play the game with...
i got the move. i wanna use it with that 007 game. bout to grab that off PSN for 30 bucks lol
I bought the move and sold it a few weeks later. I love my dualshock 3
They must support it if they want it to be successful. Plus Sony doesn't want to get the reputation that they put out add-ons to their systems and don't bring the full experiences to drive them home to the consumer.
Sorcery just came out. Seems like the best Move-only game out there. Hopefully they announce at least 1 more at E3.
Sorcery is really fun!! My son can't stop playing it. I had a blast with it!!! Is kinda sad that I had to wait like 2 yrs.. :( Sony will u ever learn smdh
PSMove is failing because Sony doesn't really support the hardware
I've tried to use this in Resistance and Socom with the sharpshooter and it's way to loose and finicky. I tried to adjust the options. Killzone works pretty decently. It could be i'm not far enough, but it's much more hassle. Tiger Woods works great when it wants to. When they release those Resident Evil games from the Wii on the PS3 i'll definitely get that and use the move.
There is more accuracy on PS Move with shooters than using the DS3 controller, but it takes a while to get used to it. DUST 514 is also compatible with PS Move, so anyone should try this when the game comes out, and is F2P.
r u serious?! I did not notice that it will be move enabled.... This game just got even better! I can't wait for D514 now this... thank you sir.
PS move will be huge with PS4!!
I understand most sentiment on "Move" the product itself, an d "how they love to use it " and how "it changed gaming" for them and how magical and all but with the options of being able to use a regular controller, the mass is not going out and purchasing PsMove to play these games that are compatible. PsMove and Kinect are just gimmicks to prolong the life of these consoles. If the devs don't take them serious(because they really don't have to)then these peripherals are just fads and will fade over time. The thing is, Nintendo fully supports the wii-mote with most most of their gaming library. On the Wii, this is how you play. With other consoles, your are given a choice and most of the time games will stay retro and use a controller and devs also might not see money in a certain titles that uses move.
You'll never get a AAA game from any motion control device game. They are casual experiences for a reason.
Dance Central is probably as close as we can get to that.
That's pretty much the same as the SingStar Dance game. Funny to watch online (SingStar feature) but i wouldn't consider it AAA or even AA, it may be -A
Giving a AAA Move title as I understand it is something Sony did NOT want to enforce on people, they wanted the ability to play the games anyway someone chooses. Now i'm not saying some Move titles are not AAA but this is Sony's thinking.
I think the problem is developers, they are the ones not taking advantage of it, we should be yelling at them not Sony. Sony could promote it better for sure, but lets face it what does Sony promote well? Heck even the Vita had horrid promotion..
nope Move=sixaxis 2
