Japan Sees Move's Public Debut, Goes and Plays Mario Galaxy 2

1UP: E3 attendees don't always have all the fun. Before the booths in LA could even be fully taken down, Sony gave PlayStation Move its public debut this weekend at Japan's World Hobby Fair, a bi-annual event that features the latest games, manga, and anime. We were on hand to check out public reaction as well as the two featured games, EyePet and Kung Fu Rider.

the power of the fat plumber
and by the way the title is a bit misleading

SOAD5137d ago

Of course the title is misleading. If the title gave an accurate of the article, no one would read it and it would garner no hits. That's why most of the popular titles on this site have misleading and/or incendiary titles.

@SOAD

You just described N4G in a sentence!

but he speaks the truth

unknownhero11235137d ago

and that is exactly why gaming journalism fails today. Instead of trusting the content of thier article, "journalists" rely(sp?)on flame bait titles. gamers should really not pander to these type of people.

csreynolds5137d ago (Edited 5137d ago )

Exactly. Most of the crud gaming 'journalists' write isn't worth reading, so they create ambiguous titles to pull in views. And people buy it, poor souls...

N4G in a nutshell, everyone.

Meanwhile, Mario Galaxy 2, a game that's been out in Japan for nearly a month, had the longest lines of the show. Those that did try Move walked away looking impressed, and the reason for the relative apathy towards the device remains unclear.

Well the name say it all "MOVE"

"Move" away

Keep "moving"

"Move" bitch get out the way

MOVE!!!!

Wrong name for the product i guess.

Alcon Caper5137d ago

Hm, I don't think it's a completely misleading title actually. He's basing the popularity of the product on the line lengths to play the new product:

"Judging by the length of the lines at Sony's booth, interest in the device isn't particularly high. ModNation Racers attracted twice the attention of Sony's motion controller. Meanwhile, Mario Galaxy 2, a game that's been out in Japan for nearly a month, had the longest lines of the show. Those that did try Move walked away looking impressed, and the reason for the relative apathy towards the device remains unclear."

If you're judging by longer lines, then Mario Galaxy 2 did fare better then Move... (although the Movie title didn't seem like a full fledged game...)

Japan not impressed with the Move? I wouldn't be either if I was showing only those two titles!

My top 3 are Mario 3, Mario World and Mario 64. Mario Odyssey is also excellent, and I enjoyed Sunshine but didn't care for the Galaxy series.
