Sony claims its new move controller is an improvement, not a copy, of the Wii.
Less than 3 weeks!! Hope my gamestop does a midnight launch.
We're not. :(
this thing is great hardcore AND casual plus coke marketing and KB = holiday season domination
PlayStation Move is more than an improvement wii = motion controls PlayStation Move = Augmented Reality
LOL CNN Gaming. But this is actually pretty good footage. (2:10) - Freaking great tracking.
and time will tell
this is why i like Sony. they don't pretend to have invented the wheel, they just say they've improved it -- which they have
since sony devs had this techs since 2002 .....and the ps3 sixaxis had motion sensors BEFORE the wii release date....
cannot wait for this :D Also cannot wait for Halo: Reach :) Life just gets better
...and you killed it.
how did i kill it....
By being a naughty boy.
Yeah, I can't wait to play Halo: Reach with Move. That's what you were implying right, right?!
hahahaha no Sarcasm = fail
It's a copy, but it's a better copy.
I don't think copy is a fair description since the technology is different, but if it is, then its a much better copy. First, Wii doesn't have true 1:1 tracking and most movements can be faked with wrist flicks; its mostly gesture based. The accuracy of the Move really looks incredible in comparison. Second, the Wii SD resolution is a real turn-off to me. Once you go HD, it is just impossible to go back. No more "tubes" in this house. The last difference is only ergonomics, but the Move just looks like it'll be more comfortable in your hand.
it might be slightly more accurate than wii but overall design are too much of the same http://www.thetanooki.com/w...
and shutup troll
That is why you have one bubble. Go away.
I remember the days when I couldn't see comments with 1 bubble.
Go into your preferences and change your level then. I put it back down to 1 bubble minimum, because i was missing half the fun on this place up at 3.
I guess someone missed the big glowing ball on the end of the move and the buttons, and the ergonomics or maybe that's just me. :P

If I was a Sony shareholder right now, I would be crying my eyes out and sell the stock. Sony had researched both EyeToy and PS Move, chose EyeToy and released it. Then backtracked and now releasing PS Move after seeing how well the Wii sold. Sony sounds like a company that is unable to execute a great product release despite having the technology far in advance of the competition. Now it sounds more to me like Sony never intended to releas PS Move, but because of MS Kinect showing at last years E3, they rushed it to market. Perhaps Sony was saving it for PS4? Note, I do not personally own any Nintendo, Sony or MS stock.
STOCK TROLL!! You're a rare breed *throws pokeball*
A big part of what makes Move work is the internal sensors. The gyroscopes and accelerometers. Anton Mikhailov has said that the technology of those has just recently gotten fast enough to make Move as accurate and fast as it is. I think you're right that they had shelved the idea, but part of the reason was that they didn't feel that, at the time, they had the right balance of performance and cost. At the time it just didn't add enough over what the Eyetoy was doing (the same reason they passed over 3D camera technology).
You are right about that, but Wii Motion Plus was released last year. I can't imagine we need much better gyroscopes and accelerometers than that. I do agree with you though that the technology available probably wasn't there yet in terms of availability and cost. However, Nintendo managed to release Wii Motion Plus in the meantime. In Sony's defense though, a lot of research happens at each of these mammoth companies and never see the light of the day or get shelved for a variety of reasons.
yup the Wii can do Z-axis /s
@ Dance: Yeah they're both black and they both are shaped like tv remotes, and they both have wriststraps. But the most innovative thing about the Move is the ball, and it is what makes all the difference. Motion Plus is a glorified orientation sensor. It just means the Wiimote now knows how its rotated. That's ALL. FACT. Move, however, is a complete 3D tracking solution, doing full XYZ position, orientation, 1:1 Virtual Reality, and 1:1 Augmented Reality perfectly. The Wiimote can't tell the difference between a punch to the face and a punch to the stomach. The Wiimote can't tell if you're holding your shield by your face or by your legs. The Move can, and there's really no question of its capabilities- it is a Super Wii Motion Plus Plus, or as I would call it, what the Wii should have been at launch. That's why the Wii is a letdown in terms of motion controls and the Move is not, and why suddenly motion controls are cool- because they're being backed by hardware that actually is tracking its position and orientation in true 1:1 and on all axes, unlike the Wiimote+, which is more like a travelling compact gyroscope with an accelerometer for waggle gestures.
I honestly agree. It's an improvement. This is what the Wii should have been (excluding the camera) not the "oh, it's been two years, let's release 1:1 Wii Motion Plus now" bullcrap. Sony stepped their game up.
She totally wanted him.
Wow. She was so full of fail. Edit: And yet... ...I want her.
Once Sony markets the move its gonna be lights out. Im surprise I haven't seen an ad yet
First off, Mr. Stacker...huge fan. You are delicious and I honestly can't contain myself around you. Also...you'll see the ads popping up in the next two weeks. Walmart and Best Buy will be doing kiosks of Move one week before it releases also. The Coke products with Move on them will be launching in the same time period, as well as the Subway campaign. As you see in GameStop, Walmart, and Best Buy...Sony already has an active ad campaign in the stores.
thanks for the info...cant wait to get a Move on got mines preorder already
ps move is an incredible device.
That burger isn't actually real is it?
comment of the day
You should look up Burger King's Windows 7 burger (only released in Japan)
Considering it's coming up at the same time as Reach there's probably no ad space left to buy. Of course you couldn't expect Sony to change their ways and actually market their stuff could you?
Look At My Picture I See No Copy Controller + Camera = Best Of Both World
stores are starting to get their posteres, signs, booths etc in for move and a ew for kinect as well.. i pre ordered 2 motion controllers, a sub controller, sports champions game, lights out, socom got pushed back i'm pissed about that but at least there is mag, ruse and resident evil 5 and heavy rain, which reminds me if i'm going to get an re5 gold used i need to get it now before they sell out.. i'm looking forward to mag and ruse.. i actually never played resident evil 5, i was going to play heavy rain a few months ago for a third time but once i heard about move support i figured i would wait..
NBA 2K11 is on Wii and PS3 supporting Move. Bet you all my bubbles the PS3 version kills the Wii version all around and this is just a start.
Forgot to add the Move channel my bad
Its a copy and an improvement, hence, its a refinement, and thats what games are all about. Thats why we're driven by sequels. Rarely does a concept get nailed 100% on its first iteration, so the idea is that sequels get better and better. Maybe not in the movie world, but in games this is generally true.
The video was good but the last few seconds were how do I say...akward.
That's not awkward at all. If I were in that situation...I'd tap one of the girls on the shoulder and ask her out. Then, I'd beat her in the face with it. Yeah...with IT!
haha the camera man is a little awkard
That is the problem with people. They go in and try to make the the Move work like the Wiimote.And then they come back claiming it doesn't work well. Good example is The Fight. People who try to play it like Wii Boxing get knocked down on their @$$ by the A.I. But those who use the the Move's accurately and fight like you are fighting a real person using dodges,looking for weak points and punching properly and not flailing widely do a lot better. I think those who are buying the Move better get it out of their heads that it is a Wii-mote right now. It is definitely a different controller and you should ignore the idiots who say otherwise.
CNN game coverage? o.O?
at the beginning she looks like she holding a @#$$%^& lol
I showed him a video of the tech demos for Move saying how I think that it is much better than the Wii. He responded by saying "Wow... Makes me glad that I bought a Wii." That pissed me off so I abused him and the Wii. (I own one as well as the PS3 - he only owns Wii.) So he posted this on Youtube and my facebook lol... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Its me fixing my YLOD from my original PS3 that I had for 4 years. I felt like I got stabbed in the heart that day. :( God damn it.... I think he won that round. My other friend still doesn't talk to me when we had a XBOX/PS3 is better argument which ended in a drunken punch on. At least he finally came around and bought a PS3. Fanboy wars in real life lol... Before you comment about me being sad fanboy geek - Im not. Im just a highly vocal and opinionated person who will argue anything and everything with my friends so they just try to wind me up.
An improvement, anyone ever play the wii and try to aim on screen with the damn thing? Uugh talk about counter inuitive :\
Move = improved Wiimote Kinect = Not improved Eye toy
Can't wait! :D
move is awesome and is the future of motion gaming, but the needed more time at the end there, they should have trained her up on sports champions so she had a chance to get used to it as most wii users will think they can get away with wrist flicking and doing daft moves
A true KILLER APP for Move would have to be DEMON'S SOULS 2. Let's hope Sony and From Software are already developing this game secretly...
No sh*t. At PAX I'm going to walk up to the Move demo and ask them to show me something Wii can't do... and I'm confident they will give it to me. They might block arrows with a shield, or swat blaster bolts with a lightsaber. That's the big difference. Wii motions tend to "activate" actions, where the Move tends to give you finite control. That's the difference here.
