Here's a video from Sony's event in Seattle showcasing the PlayStation 3 Move system and SOCOM 4, followed by today's column - a Q&A with Brian Soderberg, president of SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive.
best of both worlds!
i can't wait..
wow I thought the face buttons were a bit bigger. seems tiny
^^^^^^^^^^^^ And if they were a bit bigger you wouldve said the face buttons are HUGE!!! Just say you dont like move and continue on,
one thing is that they took "nintendos" idea and are trying to make it better, now hear me out, i'm very pro-sony, and one of the things i like about sony is that they come up with awesome ideas of their own, like for example the eye-toy. but this "MOVE" is very similar to the "wii-mote" and although it is better, it is still very similar. the second problem i have is that alot of resources are beign use to create games for it. not only money wise but also man hours developing games that will satisfy the casual crowd. i think i would rather see that money spent on making great blockbuster games, like UNCHARTED2, GOW3, KILLZONE2, MGS4, etc Now i guess my last problem with it is price. call me cheap if u want but i think i would rather save that money to purchased games for my ps3. you see, the Wii came with the wii-mote & a nunchuck for only $249. if a casual person wants to get the move, he will have to spend $299 for the system alone and then about $80 more for the "move", then another $20 for an HDMI, oh yeah and don't forget $50 for the eye-toy. that's a whooping $450 before tax,........ hell before you even buy a game. in this economy, you are either unemployed or you know someone very close to you that it has been. please don't think of me as a hater. i love my PS3 (PSN: X3MEKILLA), had it since launch with 0 problems. i also have a Wii that i haven't even use for a long, long time. the thing is that i really don't like idea of the "move"....... i wish them luck thoug
It will work with FPS. The question is: will it be preferred over DS3. With cover systems and stop and pop work as well? If it works better than DS3, it could bring some 360 hard core over to having both consoles, and that will mean more sales for Sony and a better attach rate. If it does not then they still need to bring in those casuals. I think at this point the casuals are the market Sony mostly needs. E3 will clear up a lot of questions around the motion war. Fanboys throwing insults at each other should keep us entertained until then.
What the hell? I just said they're tiny...how in the world does that translate to I don't like MOVE? I'm actually excited to play The Fight: Lights Out. The buttons are tiny then they are tiny and I thought they were bigger. Plain and simple.
Nah, I don't think THAT'S the question. Move isn't meant to compete with or replace the DS3. It is meant to be a device that can ease non-traditional "hardcore" gamers into traditional hard core games (and also casual style gaming without a control pad) if they choose and also as a fun alternative for traditional hardcore gamers. Traditional gamers are not interested in replacing the traditional control pad but rather would welcome alternatives to enhance & vary their gaming experience ONLY if done properly. I think the real question is, can/will the MOVE work properly for a wide variety of gaming groups and be fun and I think I certainly has accomplished that in my view.
dunno why Blaze is receiving such a hard time - those buttons are indeed small as hell.
1)You seem to forget that the ps3 already has a 34mil user install base. 2)Anyone looking to purchase any console (with a HDD) is going to have to fork out some coin.
ps3 articles that's why.
Those buttons are kinda small lol, shouldn't matter though because they're all far apart from eachother, so you won't be pressing the wrong buttons by accident :) ----------------------------- ------------------------------- --- 00:39 Playstation cushions!! I'm so jealous =(
LOL at these bizarre price analyses. You "have to" spend $450 to use this with your friends? I have the Eye camera already. I'm buying one controller, which I'm estimating will probably cost $50 to $60 without the camera. I may eventually buy one more Move controller to play a game with friends. Any more than that and I'm going to expect other people to bring their own controllers.
DS3 isn't going anywhere. No dev is being forced to support move. Even on the motion side of things, DS3 can remain alive, as devs still can use DS3 + Camera on PS3 (which will be more widespread on the base after move). Also DS3 can still be used as a NavCon (so just don't trow away your DS3 yet, who knows how much a NavCon is going to cost). That said, the gamepad system shall remain the control of choice for most estabilished franchises from Sony. Sony have a lot of first party studios that aren't doing anything we know of right now. Don't be surprised if Sony used this great support capacity to keep both controls/crowd well served, and still having their wallets crying (2010 is the third year in a roll that my backlog is getting backlogged, and that is while some major studios have yet to reveal or release any games this gen).
Saying Move is a copy from Wii, is just Ignorance. Better take a research.
The pricing is wrong. PS3 $299 already includes a game in most stores. PS3 Move + Camera + Another Game = $99 So you could be playing on Move + Have all the other high tech features of the PS3 for just $400 with 2 games. Not $450 with no games like you said. Also you can be sure that the PS3 Slim will come bundled with the Move and Eyetoy and the price will be even lower on those bundles maybe even $350. A $100 difference between the too is very reasonable for the graphical advantages. To anyone who knows what they are buying it is stupid to get the Wii unless your after a certain Wii exclusive. @Edit To the people saying they hope Sony spent money on something else... Move just like with Natal will sell like hot cakes and make both companies a profit. By taking money from casual gamers they can make more games for you/us hardcore gamers.
^^ lol, they are going to a special all in one package(ps3 + motion control) my guess is they will make it cheaper then what you just put up there, I am guessing $350
PS Move will be the best out of the 3, you cant deny that Harcore + Casual = Win
Was this a press only super duper secret event?
Show some footage of Knitting Grandmas 3!!!!!!!!!!! j/k lol i wanna play demon souls with this beast
How come nobody asked about competing with dualshock players? I think this is going to be a problem. Sony wants to play it safe by adding this functionality to their games, which in turn will create a two-tiered system. Kind of like playing with keyboard and mouse players. The guy said in the video that the Playstation Move is more accurate so it seems to me dualshock gamers will be at a disadvantage. I expect the first year or two to be like this until the Playstation Move is in a lot of homes before they make a big budgeted game that revolves around the Move controller. Instead of it being merely an option.
yeah socom 4 is a big budget game. Sony has to be careful here with prices...they already missed up with the psp go for $250.. For instance that fighter game with the move controller.....requires 2 move controllers and the camera ..just to play it....plus the other part of the controller for the other games (....unless the Move controller and nunchuck are bundled together....and not sold like the wii controllers) I am very interested to see the pricing strategy and how these controllers will be sold. I don't have a PS eye for i have never had a reason to until now.
no difference between a keyboard and mouse player and a dualshock player I think UT3 made evidence of that. Its all about preference and how well you can use your controls. However Move seems like the bridge between both worlds and if its really more accurate then it could really spark a revelation in how shooters are played especially in the hardcore market where people are always looking for ways to get the upper-hand with best precision.
It seems likley that the average PS3 user is going to assume that analog sticks are going to be more accurate until Move is released, then they will start getting owned badly by Move just as they would with mouse and keyboard. The first hardcore shooter in which Move is really well implemented (could be SOCOM 4) is going to change a lot of perceptions about this device. Unreal Tournament III had an option to filter out mouse and keyboard users in games for this reason; other games will probably require the same sort of thing.
never mind wrong post lol
so glad the conventional controller is not being replaced, i wont go for this motion control frenzy
Sony hit the mark w/ Move. I really think MS are kicking themselves saying why we didnt do that first because MS core are shooters and the Move looks like its more precise than a mouse and still has the joystick to move around which is why I like console controllers better for the joysticks. Sony can hit the casual and the hardcore market something that wii nor natal will ever achieve. When this hits ill be eager to demo it hoping some stores allow it to see how accurate it is with shooters if its as good as it looks ill definitely be picking 1 up.
yeah i agree but its Xboxlive......there are enough shooters always...even ps3 fanboys know this. I think MS is going for a different crowd with natal....but they will know how to market unlike the eyetoy. but like i said earlier I am very interested to see the pricing strategy and how the move controllers will be sold. I don't have a PS eye for i have never had a reason to until now...same for MS and also once again i wanna play demon souls with this beast.
I have an eyetoy and never really used it other than as a mic/vid maybe move will finally put it better use lol. Its also another reason why I know natal will just be blowing smoke because it does nothing my eyetoy cant do no amount of marketing will make a crappy product/idea a good 1. I heard Move will be like 50 dollars but yea I hope it comes w/ the extension nunchuck thing or w/e if not ill have to contemplate about getting it more because w/o that all you really have is a wii-too.
@Mastermind Yeah, I'm interested to see how this would go with Demon Souls as well. When I first saw the demo of PS Move when the guy was using the bow n arrow to hit the targets on screen the first thing I thought was, "Wow, if they put this in Oblivion/Demon Souls..." E3 2010 will be veryyyyyy interesting...
JIMMMY!!!!!!JIMMY!!!JIMMMY!!! I AGREE!!!! :D
well i'm looking forward for sonys move but i'm alittle worried i played call of duty of wii and holy crap i played 3 mins and said no way so i love sony so i really hope this thing works
@LevelHead "Playstation Move is more accurate so it seems to me dualshock gamers will be at a disadvantage" if that's the case they better go out and buy the move! that could be a big selling point! I know if I was playing a game and everyone with a Move Controller was kicking My ass I would go out and buy the Move too!
lol I am going to be advertising the ps move when I use it on Socom 4 so when I start owning people will know why, lol, hopefully this will help to rise awareness and more people will buy it to prevent being owned on shooters, only problem being is once they get a ps move is i will go back to being owned again lol:):)
That definitely should be the main selling point for core gamers. Now the DS3 is great, Move will not replace it but should definitely supplement it by bringing new experiences. I just wish my fellow gamers could use their imagination and realise exactly how much potential Move has. It's all going to come down to how games implement the Move. Shooters have been reported to be very accurate. Move will make RTS games viable on consoles. Imagine how much better a game like GTA would be with move; driving, fighting, shooting, interacting with the world. I personally want to see a good rpg done with Move. I love old school turn based rpg but the menus can get tedious. Using different actions with the move controller to quickly execute attacks, defences, healing, magic, in real time would be just awesome.
Woo, I hope there's no latency issues...Pleaaaaaaaase!
Ps Move looks so promising at least it offers the best of both worlds, I can't wait come E3 to see more on ps move, I'm so excited.
I really hope they don't mess this SOCOM game up, seeing that it's being done by Zipper this time I have faith. If they use what they have learned from SOCOM 1-3, (mainly SOCOM 2), keep those elements and add new things here and there that integrate well with SOCOM IV, then Zipper will have floored me. Don't get me wrong, I'm very much looking forward to seeing how the PS Move will turn out as well, but being a SOCOM fan ever since SOCOM 1, this is the game I've been waiting for 5+ years and one of the main reasons I have a PS3. I guess you could compare SOCOM IV to GT fans who are still waiting for GT5's release. I just hope Zipper comes through with it.
SO HERES A BREIF SUMMERY OF WHAT I THINK.!! I WANT ONE NOW ! a ball that changed color with your inviroment.?? AMBILIGHT TECHNOLOGY TOO OH MY TOUNGE IS WET forgive me..
