Is there any hope left for PlayStation Move?

With Sony yet to deliver that triple-A PlayStation Move experience, ponders if there's any hope left for the motion-sensing peripheral.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

himdeel2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

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.

LOL im sorry buddy i just had to laugh
i never actually thought anyone would ever say that

Pixel_Enemy2337d ago

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.

Wh15ky2336d ago (Edited 2336d ago )


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.

guitarded772336d ago (Edited 2336d ago )

@ 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 !

Iceman X2337d ago

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.

abzdine2337d ago

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

StraightPath2337d ago

Move was pretty much dead on arrival.

Knushwood Butt2337d ago

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.

Wh15ky2336d ago

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.

Knushwood Butt2336d ago

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.

Wh15ky2336d ago (Edited 2336d ago )

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.

Knushwood Butt2336d ago

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

SAE2336d ago

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.

Y_51502337d ago

If no third party support, then there is no hope. But there is so don't count out the move just yet!

LOGICWINS2337d ago

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.

brettyd2337d ago

Bought the sharpshooter day one, could never get used to it.

pupa2337d ago

you have to calibrate and work on it mate.

LOGICWINS2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

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.

morganfell2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago ) 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...

xursz2337d ago

Wth. So it must be Move players that crush me in Killzone. I've gotta try this "sharpshooter".

kneon2337d ago

That could be, pulling off head shots with the Sharpshooter is so easy it feels like cheating.

pupa2337d ago

What a pathetic article or rather opinion. I get owned by move players every day, so why "hope" for something that is?
