..not really. Anyway, it's nice to know that it does work but it's not really something you'd go out of your way to use while watching a Bluray.
would be nice to be able to scrub through content with the move im sure it will be better integrated at launch or slightly after
"Not as cool as you would expect..."? What does that mean? I expect it to navigate the menu. Did you expect something else?
Why not have the tracker ball come on (but go off after the controller is still for a few seconds), providing you with all sorts of easier navigation tools? Fast forward/Rewind by making a circular motion, Play/Pause by making a stabbing motion, bring up the pop-up menu by holding the Move in the air, etc. Of course, none of that is easier than pushing a button, but it would still be a cool tech demo or last resort if the controller is beside you and you are too lazy to get up and grab the actual Blu-ray remote/Dualshock.
maybe it's because he's not using the ps eye.
Listen... It's completely possible for them to integrate this with blu-rays, but it's not exactly a demanded feature. You could also use the PlayStation Eye itself to navigate movies...like Kinect. For obvious reasons, Sony chose not to do this, however.
no, I mean he's using only the move without the eye apparently. Maybe if he add the eye the controls improve.
I think he meant how un-intuitive and useless PS Move is on blu-rays. See how he had problems navigating the menu? Figuring out what does what? Might as well use a controller, it cost less and you can figure it out faster!
Also notice how he has his 360 placed on the TV? No wonder these 360 goes RROD! This guy is a "supposedly" hard core gamer, yet he is dense enough to block the bottom vent as well as the right vent! I'm sure we will get an article about how he kept his Xbox 360 in the open yet it RROD soon.
Then he proceeds to comment on "gyroscopes" which clearly he is clue less. Blog news at it's best!!!
That is a really good movie. It's an awesome commentary on the value of human life, and how we treat it as a commodity (high supply = low value/low supply = high value).
its a controller for the playstation 3, is it not?
Without reading I would say yes as it has all the same face buttons. You know what would be a really cool idea though? If you could use the PS eye's voice function to stop and start it. Of course you would have to use a verbal code to avoid confusion, lets say, oh I don't know...... 'PS3 PLAY' and 'PS3 STOP'. Infact I gonna write a letter to Sony right now!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well of cause it does, like it's been said why wouldn't it.
LOL.. yea I trust anything this kid says...he didnt even know the internal workins of it,,,LOL and I never read it was BR compatible to begin with
I just watched part of the video, but this just helped confirm my decision not to even bother with move. IMO the standard DS2 will work much better!
cool video, but he doesnt sound very informed or professional. the last kinda guy i want to see in my videos.
Why the guy is very close to the TV or to the PS Eye?
So I can get me and the TV in the same shot.
Can you play games quite close or do you need a 'Kinect' sized living room?
I prefer the optional Blu Ray controller - it is only 20 dollars, and has a seperate button for every function, like every other DVD/Blu Ray controller.
He's using the Move before the final firmware for it is even out. For all we know, there could be lots of other Move options in the release firmware, which I'll bet Sony will update shortly before the Move releases at retail. I wouldn't expect too much extra stuff, however. Remember the OS on the PS3 is absolutely minimal, as far as memory footprint goes, to make more available for games. I doubt they'll have too many cool pointer-style features available for it -- just because they can't add much without making the OS bigger (which would make some games unplayable). If we see cool uses of the Move, it'll be inside games and apps, not in the OS.
Stupid... I have a PS3 remote to navigate DVD / BR menus. Why would I like to use a motion controller?
Why would you even need to use move? I'd rather stick to using DS3 to navigate.
Don't listen to him. "Children of Men" is a terrible movie.
