Last Week, the European PlayStation Move Starter-Kit was Sold Out at Germans biggest Online-Retailer Amazon.de. Now, the PlayStation Move as Stand-Alone Bundle as well ...
Bu-bu-bu-but Move will bomb.
You know it won't do well when Sony themselves say its not a day one purchase and don't expect large launch numbers.
But it seems to be selling way better than Sony's expectations; maybe it will be slow only in America.
Sony: The PSMove won't selll very well on day one. Consumers: Oh yeah, we'll buy everyone until you are sold out!! Sony: Fell right into our trap..... Mwahahhahahaha!!
@justlikeme : Dude LOL !! Move will explode,.. Us Europeans like the shit that is good and works great !
What there saying is that the initial software line up is crap, like who's really going to pay 75 quid to play a clone of Wii Sports like Wii Sports isn't bad enough already lol, but once games like Littlebigplanet 2 and Killzone 3 come out Move will start to pick up. There just being honest about there sales projections.
It is gong to do great game-ur. In addition it actually works unlike that ridiculous device ms is trying to shove down the throats of the public with advertising dollars rather than working technology. Some people are just feeling the pressure that they smack talked and supported a piece of junk. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Omega4, your comment lacks...common sense, Sony probably knows that their gaming software lacks that extra ooh-ah factor, after all the games that are supposed to be the biggest pusher for the Move aren't coming out til 2011 (i.e. KZ3, SOCOM4, The Sorcerer etc.) so they don't expect a big bang, heck they probably expect Move to bitz the Holiday season quickly. But I bet they're hoping it does do all of that and more. Seems to me that the move is doing just fine.
They said they dont expect day 1 numbers but for it to steadily grow as more Software launches early next year etc. You really are just a fanboy.
The evolution of Omega4 1st gen Omega4: The cost is important, look at the PS3 it's $599 while the elite is only $X... then Sony dropped the price to $299 and Microsoft still charges too much for it's add ons and online 2nd gen Omega4: It's the graphics that sells units... just look at Gears of War. Then Uncharted 2 came out and NOT a single 360 game released has able to look better... now graphics aren't important 3rd gen Omega4; Multiplatform graphics really sell units... Burnout Paradise looks better on PS3 and he shuts up. 4th gen Omega4: No one plays blu-ray... HD-DVD DIES! 5th gen Omega4: Installs are killing the PS3... Microsoft launches install feature... he shuts up 6th gen Omega4: Sales... look at teh sales clearly the 360 is better. PS3 3 million behind... he shuts up 7th gen Omega4: Motion controls, look at how advanced Natal is... Bam video everywhere and casual games. When will Omega4 just shut up.
@Game-ur Maybe their expectations in North America aren't high but they seem to be in PAL. Sony said they're projecting 500k Move units sold in Germany this fiscal year.
and get a fucking life. The highlight of your existence is trolling N4g articles. Get a life you socially retarded virgin. (thats a fact that is truer than any NPD bullshit you flash around) Even the other Xbox fanboys on here will probably agree.
either my fellow PS3 owners (be you fanboy or gamer) have turned against me or the the Nintendo fanboys have come out of the pipes at last.
You deserved the disagrees. "...like who's really going to pay 75 quid to play a clone of Wii Sports like Wii Sports isn't bad enough already lol" Anyone that believes Sports Champions is a clone of that ridiculous Wii Sports deserves the disagrees and bubbled down.
Omega was expecting a sh!tload of Overhyping PR talk and massive budget in advertising Over-promising to ends up Under-delivering with the final product... hmmm... pretty much like kinect... O-T Casual Gaming + Hardcore Gaming = All with the Same Device = PlayStation Move
It is an exact copy of Sports Champion because the concept of both games is exactly the game. Granted, tech wise the SC is way ahead of Wii Sports but the concept of both of them is to play mini games that are based around sports and show of the technology to developers. The reason Sony are releasing a game like this is because Wii Sports has so far sold around 72 million copies. If Sports Champion even sells even 10% of that it's 7.2 million copies sold ,which judging by the amount of disagrees I got will happen on the launch day lol.
omega4 your momma still not leting you buy a ps3 yet.!! hope you had your fish today and your 5ive aday. ;-)
And all shooters are the same because there is shooting. See how ridiculous that sounds? Look, you are wrong. No if, ands, or buts. You are wrong, you made a ridiculous statement, were slapped with disagrees. The fact is the two titles are not the same. Instead of saying, "That isn't the way I meant it", or "I was off on that remark", you redouble your efforts. Redoubling your efforts when you aim is forgotten is known as fanaticism. And there should be no more whining because you asked why you received disagrees. I told you. You just aren't mature enough to accept the answer you were given.
I am willing to admit I am wrong about what I said if you can give me a reason why, judging it as a game and not including the technology behind it as we're talking about the concept (not genre) of the game, Sports Champions is an improvement on Wii Sports in any way shape or form.
This really shouldn't be necessary. It shouldn't. If you understand the technology and depth of control then that alone should be the beginning of understanding as to why the two collections are as different as Doom and Killzone 3. I had time with Move as far back as GDC where we played SOCOM behind closed doors. The relativity between the two titles ends with the words Sports and Motion Control. That is all those subjects have in common. I have had a Wii with all the accessories for quite some time and we are discussing night and day here. For a reasoning person it really shouldn't require anymore guidance to begin to see things clearly.
with no clear answer in them. But since you have no bubbles left I guess the last word is this, I am not disputing the technology (never have been and never will) because the technology is what puts Sports Champion above Wii Sports and it's awesome. This article is about a 360 fanboy saying "Sony themselves say its not a day one purchase" and I remember reading an article where someone from Sony did say that. Instead of going against what he said, because what he said is true, I'm trying to give a reason why Sony would say that. it's because they know the majority of people that own a PS3 aren't going to be duped into buying an amazing bit of technology by games that haven't been getting good review scores and are pretty basic. I was thinking about getting Start The Party but after seeing the reviews I think I'll just stick with the move enabled games I already got. Since this is my last bubble for the topic here's a closing word FANBOYS SUCK!
@shotgun_ps3 No they are not saying the launch games is crap. What they are saying is that it is launch games and there will be much more to come. Who will buy Wii Sports on PS3 with Move? Well - those who would like to play Sports games with the Move controller because it is accurate, HD graphics - and who has a PS3 console. I am one of those. If the PS3 was not going to get a wand motion controller, then I was going to buy a Wii. Most likely a lot of Wii owners will buy PS3 + Move with Sports titles simply because the graphics is better and the Move is more accurate.
No hyrius, no one ever thought that (no one worth taking seriously anyway) the true doubt of move is, will catch on and be considered as an equal to DS3 instead of a gimmick/casual only alternative that only time will tell, but it is shaping up nicely with KZ3, Infamous 2, Socom 4, MAG / MAG2, HR, LBP2 and RE5 support but no way will Move bomb simply because of all the attention the Wii created for motion controls, people are naturally inclined towards Motion Controls now anyway for this, we have Nintendo to thank (for taking the first big step)
I played the Ruse demo this morning and cannot wait to run the full game with Move. I have to Full Move sets preordered for pickup this week (Move, navigators, charging stations, ect) and can't wait. I am going to take Friday off and just spend the weekend with some great gaming.
I found R.U.S.E. to be mediocre as did other reviewers. Under Siege might be the RTS to get for Move.
i guess ze germans like to move it
hmm but i still dont know if i should buy move or not...
I am getting it for RUSE now but if you do not want to play RUSE probs wait for LBP 2 or Socom and if they do not entise you then do not get it
it's usually the 2nd generation of software that makes hardware shine (e.g. Sorcery) so you could wait a bit before making a decision. For my case, i'm buying a set next week coz Razing Storm and table tennis looks too fun to miss out on :p Also really looking forward to using them in LBP2,KZ3,inFamous2 and all the future first party software with Move support. This is what sold me on Razing Storm: http://kotaku.com/5615513/t...
Move is great and will bomb in
I caught the new ad on UK TV last night, still no KB for us :( but it did a good job (the ladies present asked me about it) and was on during a popular show, which i'm not gonna admit to half watching ;P slightly more OT: This is great news for Sony, Germany loves the Move... ...and Hasselhoff.
I am not suprised! i preordered 2 move and 1 navigation :)
Those crazy germans
ill be busy playing gt5 and need for speed hot pursuit. i will not have time for ps move. i will get it at the end of the year thou edit: why disagree? u really think im going to get ps move at launch? i will not but my brother will be and i will try it out on his ps3
5 PS3 Move bundle's
:) wow that's alot. are you planning to put one on your bathroom?
coz playing in the bathroom is badass! edit- @NAGNEWS: ok just please ingnore my comment.
i think he means why 5 PS3 Move bundle's ;)
I think Wii will have hard time when both move and kinect are out.
Doubt it, Wii is so far ahead with its user base and memorable franchises, that Move and Kinect will have little impact on the Wii. I don't own a Wii personally, but they have a great amount of new games coming out to keep Wii owners busy.
Like what, just out of curiosity?
Epic Mickey, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Zelda: Skyward Sword.. http://kotaku.com/5427185/2...
Wii has a free ride for years they'll be just fine, plus Zelda is still coming out.
Actually I think it is the XB360 that is going to have a hard time. The low budget, casual gamer will go with the Wii - because the Wiimote works better than Kinect and is a lot cheaper than XB360 + Kinect + $60 games. The core gamers and high budget casual gamers will go for PS3 + Move, because it is the best motion controller available, and it is HD. The diehard XBox fans will buy Kinect and pretend to love it, trying their best to explain why so many games is supporting Move and Wiimote but not Kinect. PS3 owners has no reason to buy XB360 - well - maybe the Halo series - but that has nothing to do with motion controllers. Kinect is giving low end functionality at high end price - less than Wii, but asking more than PS3 for motion controller. So no-one really has a reason to be interested in Kinect. If anything we will see motion control enabled for more than 60% of new games - excluding Kinect. That will move XBox owners to migrate to either Wii or PS3. So really - I think it is the XBox360 that is the one that has a lot to worry about in 2011.
As good as move is doing in germany Kinect will do better, this is just typical hype before a product is released, by the time Kinect comes out people will have been over Move like damn I just got "wii'ed" again lol,Kinect will steal the holiday from Move. Also I've seen killzone played with move, looks incredibly boring and pointless, my goal would be for it to be more immersive and well fun...youtube it, its like sony's goal was for you to not have to "move" total fail on the grenade tossing,picking up weapons and assassinations.
Anything Kinect can do, PS Eye can do as well. Add two PS Eye's and it can do more - and cost less. But it still will not be an alternative for a wand controller. Kinect is going to be a huge disappointment. It is not going to appeal to the Wii or Move crowd. It will barely acceptable to the blind XB360 fanboys.
:) gonna be so sweet.
I can't believe at this stage people are still making the sex toy joke. And people call Sony immature and juvenile for making fun of Kinnect about buttons? Any way glad to see Move making it's mark. Ten years perfecting it well spent.
yeah I agree
Is David Hasselhoff in the German TV spots for the Move?
wow all i can say is the germans are really gonna get moving this winter. watch for the youtube vids. im glad sold out i hope it catch on world wide. wii done very well hitting the casual market. kinnect trying to hit the casual market bit too late if you ask me. and sony yes doing the same only they can continue doing what they do with the hardcore gamers too. I LIKE THE WAY YOU MOVE!!
Germany is just the begining, Move will sell well across the rest of Europe.
guys may i ask what does the demo disk include? is there like full games demo or something?
