Never-Before-Seen PS Move Tech Demo is Amazing

DualShockers writes, "Yesterday we were fortunate enough to hang out with our buddy Anton Mikailov from SCEA at Sony’s Holiday media preview event in NYC. We caught up with Anton and the PS Move a while back, and although he had some cool stuff to show us last time around, this time I was absolutely floored. Anton showcased some never before seen PS Move tech demos; the same demos that are being shown to 3rd party developers and publishers in order to showcase what the PS Move is all about. The first demo in the clip, is one you may have seen but just wait until you see the “chameleon” and “Rts” demos. Just think about all of the potential. Amazing is the only way to describe it. Check out the clip below."

Honestly, the more I see the Move in action, the more impressed I am with it. A lot of people tend to actually compare it to the Wii's controls. But, although the Wii IS a motion controller, I have yet to see it apply its tech onto applications the way the Move has been doing. For those of you who will try to compare both controllers, do yourself the favor and read on the difference in techs. The fact that developers have the option to patch code into current and future games that can make use of the controller is an amazing feat on its own.

Joule3639d ago

The physics are just crazy.

HorsePowerr3639d ago

Holy shit this is amazing.

joydestroy3639d ago

i know! i can't wait for it to come out. i'm pretty excited.

Montrealien3639d ago

That was a pretty cool tech demo, hopefully this will catch on, it clearly has motion to take Wii style motion controle to a whole new leve.

sikbeta3639d ago

PS Move is here to Stay pals, you'll love it, it has the potential to replace the DualShock if Sony can find a way to take out the camera...

PlayStation Move FTW!!!

Perjoss3639d ago

its an impressive video, you can see by the reflection of the balls in the TV that there is very little lag. Really looking forward to trying this out for myself.

WhittO3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

Next PS3 to have inbuilt HD PS Eye? haha, in 4 years time might not seem so stupid.

Have to say, I was probably going to get Move after seeing E3 conference, but the more I see what it can do, which is not just the crap Casual stuff, makes me excited to see what amazing games Devs like Naughty Dog could produce.

WhittO3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

Sorry in 4+ years time I'm sure it will be a 4D cam that will cost alot to include, trying to push the industry forward with the tech, increasing the PS4 price higher, making people cry, then 2-3 years later when the tech becomes common place/standard get over it and start to realise it was the best decision/value for money and will be used for years to come without the need to buy any extra (expensive) add-ons etc.

barom3638d ago

i'm just waiting for a truly cool game. I hope there'll be an Alan Wake-esque game for the Move. That would've been awesome. Or if Dead Space 2 supported Move, I would buy that in a heartbeat.

For now I'll still wait on the sidelines. No games have truly "moved" me yet. Tech demos are awesome but we're not getting access too them :/

raztad3638d ago

Check Echocrome ii

I intend to play some shooters with MOVE, KZ3 among them.

BTW, I agree that a MOVE enabled Dead Space 2 would be amazing.

plumber153638d ago

Think of uncharted 3 with the climbing mechanic that will be sweet

Quagmire3638d ago

Is there any chance of getting the Tech Demo for free when buying the move? That looked INSANE!

theEXPATRIATED3638d ago

Screams Demon's Souls to me! :)

BannedForNineYears3638d ago

What about Demon's Souls?! >:[

sxpacks3638d ago

No Demon's Soul because the Sword and Shield was already demo-ed and implemented

See Sports Champion.

I'm looking at the chameleon demo and the Hado-ken aspect

morganfell3638d ago

Demon's Souls is fantastic but when I think of Move and a RPG I cross my fingers and think about The Witcher 2.

Move is looking pretty sic! Anyone notice that one of the creators is just a gamer like us and near our ages, that is why I think Move is so in tune to what real gamers want. Its not some PR middle aged guy with a bunch of child actors demonstrating an overpriced camera with pre-rendered footage.

tawak3638d ago


nycredude3639d ago

If you order this month's (July) Qore they have a huge section with the creator demoing real use of the tech. It is amazing to say the least. If you are still on the fence I guarantee the demo will make up your mind. Go order July Qore for 2 bucks.

nycredude3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

Seriously get a life cez. 2 bucks to me mean shit since I make money with a job. I don't spend my life on N4g bashing everything Sony and sucking MS's dick. Go ahead take my bubbles I don't give a shit. N4g is a cess pool of hate anyways so I could care less.

I get more aggravation from visiting this site than I do information so see ya and I wouldn't wana be ya.

"Shooters and motion controllers don't really mix..." Sure I bet you think shooters and a mouse and keyboard don't mix either right? That is exactly what it will be like to play a shooter with the move.

Yeah I am a Ps3 fanboy that is why I had a Wii, 360, Ps3 and A Laptop that runs rings around your DESKTOP.

Now move along kiddo... and remember there is more to life than N4g.

Scotland-The-Brave3638d ago

Dude, you seriously are fucked up, what the hell is wrong with you?
There are a lot of fanboys on this site(including me) but at least im civil and elaborate my perception of things. You on the other hand are hands down the worst on here,(Cez,Green,Hallmark) i think your all the same person, Get a life
On Topic: This is impressing me a lot now, before i wasnt interested but after the sorcery tech demo i'm sold.

Motorola3639d ago

I liked the Chameleon one, I can see interesting games made from that

Red Panda3639d ago

You could make one hell of a jedi based Starwars game. Pick people up and force push em, or impale them with the saber after you take off a limb or four.

bviperz3638d ago

Definitely down with the Star Wars feel!

CobraKai3638d ago

It would be so easy to go to the dark side when you can force choke and dismember your enemy limb from limb. Imagine how creative and sadistic you can get.

jerethdagryphon3638d ago

hrmmm force unleashed 3 with star killer wielding 2 sabers convientintly colored blue and purple looking very confused at tyhe 3rd hilt in front of him

mmmmm force push pull throw herll they could even require tossing the move for that one then it returns to you ie you flick it back to your hand via wrist strap so many possiblitys

Two PlayStation Move controllers .... Day One Get!

It Only Does Anything!

MariaHelFutura3638d ago

I`ll like the Statue w/ the Lightning bolt through it.

menoyou3638d ago

This would be amazing in 3D holy crap!

pain777pas3638d ago

This is what I'm talking about when I talk about motion controls. The Chameleon may be able to be done with Kinect but move's precision is just what the hardcore need. I am getting this officially day one. They convinced me Socom 4 here I come or Heavy Rain.

megazeroxuxm3638d ago

well common, its like comparing an old car to a new car. of course the newer modded version will be better :)

Lykon3638d ago

i keep reading about move compared to wii, but seriously , has anyone here tried using wii controls? my experience was that they were highly inaccurate. Move looks like it actually works extremely well. i'm not someone who was interested in motion control, after several frustrating sessions with the wii, and a play through of heavy rain, flapping the dual shock around feeling bored out of my skull i'm starting to feel quite impressed and interested in move.

hazeblaze3638d ago

Yea, that shit was bananas! I hope some Sony 1st party studio gets started on a starcraft- caliber RTS!!! The level of precision in the control was sick! And the fireball demo was pretty sick too... I can't wait to see what the 1st part studios are going to come up with using this tech. Hopefully 3rd party devs will invest some R&D into it too... these short demos already showed how much additional gameplay potential is there!

ShadowCK3638d ago

I love how there is no hate for this device yet in a Kinect article it's the entire opposite. If you think that this technology will appeal to the casual you've got another thing coming. Sony would need a miracle to increase the interest in its Move system. Current sales numbers are not speaking in favor of the PS3.

It's going to be pleasure seeing Kinect crush this appalling abomination.

Lykon3638d ago

your right. I've not seen any hate for move , but not just here but from every hands on preview . I think that's because it is a really good piece of kit... and it would appear to bridge the gap between hardcore and casual effectively...if casuals can manage with the wiis broken (innacurate) controls , they'll be fine with move. Commercialy though we will have to wait and see. Move clearly fixes and improves the wii, I wonder if Kinect can make something new and useable out of webcam movement recognition software (that i remember coming bundled with logitech webcams 10 years ago).

badz1493638d ago

real life Star Wars there got me excited big time! Force Unleashed 3.0 anyone?

the-show-stopper3638d ago

or just a whole new star wars game

JoelT3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

it the Wii. Yes it's using two motion controllers and yes it's based on the same general idea. However, even with wii motion plus you CANNOT compare them in accuracy and natural movement. The move is a day one buy.

.... seriously though, I'm one hell of an interviewer right? lol

Cloudberry3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

I couldn't get to the site, probably my Internet connection...

So I asking, could you embed the video in this site / YouTube link???



Just got your video via PM, thanks.


stuntman_mike3639d ago

nice vid joel any chance of a sorcery demo???

pretty please. lol

JoelT3638d ago

unfortunately no, Sorcery wasn't there for hands on.

I took the time to check out a lot of the stuff we didn't have time to see when we were at E3. Like a lot of the 3D stuff. Look out for impressions of Motorstorm Apocalypse... it's going to be SICK.

Jake3603639d ago

You are though lol. I really enjoy watching your interivews. :)

JoelT3639d ago

I (and the site) really appreciate the viewership and readership. This is why we do it!

HeroXIV3639d ago

That was pretty awesome. Need a star wars game to utilize it exactly like that! Force Push! *throws lightsaber* oh hell yes! :)

Hadouken at the end was pretty sweet too. :P

GiggMan3639d ago

Ha yeah that was cool. Kinda reminded me more of a firebender than a Hadouken.

Narutone663638d ago

Avatar: The Last Airbender would be a great game with Move controller support.

RubMyTaco3638d ago

That hadouken comment makes me wonder..
Would be pretty cool if they found a way to make street fighter playable with move. Doing your normal attacks (punching, kicking) with the normal buttons, but hold the z button (or whatever it's called on move) and make a movement with the controller(s) to do specials. Seems pretty cool to me. Not sure it would be practical though...

IRetrouk3639d ago

kinect move over your done b4 u begun

siyrobbo3639d ago

why does every move or kinect thread turn into a move vs kinect debate? cant you just enjoy something for its own merits without having to compare it to something else?

anyway, back on topic, that chameleon demo was very good, i like the direction they are going with the tech, pushing in different directions than what has been done before. Just wish the launch line-up was better

IRetrouk3639d ago

wot merits does kinect have other than being expensive and laggy, we have seen time and time again that it doesnt work as advertised, its an eytoy with a 3d camera, dont get me wrong i love my xbox but move just does a better job of motion control, sorry if you dont agree but i honestly dont really care.

siyrobbo3638d ago (Edited 3638d ago )

maybe so but why does it have to be continuously rammed down our throats

every new kinect article has 100's of comments about how crap and expensive it is. yes its shit, yes its overpriced, but why the constant repetition

not every kinect article need 3 dozen comments about why move is so superior

alphakennybody3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

Nice demos, lol at the chameleon demo. the move is showing what the wii should've been years ago.

PS: new AC gameplay footage at the background near the end.

JoelT3639d ago

sneaky Eddy. Good eyes!

ULTIMATE_REVENGE3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

Honestly I've always thought that Assassins Creed looks like a PS2 game in HD. AC1, 2 & AC:BH all look the same.

Do they even update their engine or what?

silvacrest3639d ago

i said the same thing a while ago and got loads of disagrees

I'm glad that at least someone else noticed this

DigitalAnalog3639d ago

Ubisoft utilzed an outdated engine for SCC and a very "non-HD" POP along with that. I don't think graphics is their forte.

-End statement

DatNJDom813638d ago

i think things would be different if it was a PS3 exclusive. but since its multiplat, u know..... no real improvements can be done. limiting hardware.......
