Earlier I posted news of the Move.me app. One major question was is this available to everyone? Disappointing news...

sinncross4743d ago

Yeah a select few seems a little lame. But if its a process where they start making it more open over time, then thats fine, at the very least.

callahan094743d ago

I dunno if this is true, though. It sounds a lot like speculation to me. He is choosing to interpret a couple of words used in the press announcement to assume that it won't be available to everyone, but he's not quoting anyone from Sony when he says it won't be available to everyone, he's literally just making up an assumption and he does a really good job of stating it like it's a fact.

On the PS Blog, they announced it and said: "It allows anyone with a PS3 to experiment with motion controls and is officially sanctioned and supported by Sony Computer Entertainment." Why would they announce it on their public blog and say something like THAT if it wasn't going to be available to "anyone with a PS3." It would be an out-right lie.

So DigitalTrends is interpreting one word to say it's not going to be available to everyone, and completely ignoring the statement that blatantly says it WILL be available to everyone with a PS3.

Yep, I think you are right. I found an official link.

It looks to me like early availability will be limited, but it will eventually be available to anyone who wants it.

blackburn54743d ago

Okay. I can live with that. Give it to the people that can make the most use out of it. But it would be cool if you gave it to us to play with too eventually. Unless they are afraid of what hackers might do to misuse it.

DanSolo4743d ago

Well personally I wouldn't know what to do with it anyway.... but I am more than happy to experience and enjoy whatever the people who do know what they are doing with it, make from it!

hesido4743d ago

Why is Sony afraid of widespread dissemination of Move? They should open it to PC development.

Arksine4743d ago

The PSBlog entry makes it sound like this will be available to anyone with a PS3. McCutchan even goes on to state:

"It allows anyone with a PS3 to experiment with motion controls and is officially sanctioned and supported by Sony Computer Entertainment."

He then finishes with this thought:

"We know that some of you out there are aspiring software developers yourselves and we’re eager to see what kinds of applications Move.Move inspires. Maybe an aspiring developer like you will create the next big thing with PlayStation Move!"

That sure sounds like it will be open to me. If not, I will be very disappointed and there would be no reason for it to be announced on PS Blog.

A Small Mistranslation of PlayStation's Multiplatform Plans Causes Panic Among Sony Fans

A mistranslated statement by Sony's CFO and COO Hiroki Totoki about PlayStation's multiplatform plans is causing unwarranted panic among some PS5 fans.

They might be talking about Bungie's game Marathon. That game will also launch on Xbox.

“Sony's President quote clarified, "multi-platform" means PS and PC NOT Xbox and Switch“

Everyone should’ve known this.

Abriael5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I've read that making the rounds, but that's actually false (I believe it comes from a site doing some speculation and another site quoting it as gospel, because people nowadays can't do their job, it appears).

Totoki-san didn't issue any such clarification anywhere. He did not say anywhere or at any time that he doesn't mean Xbox and Switch.

But that's because no clarification is actually needed.

The original statement itself, if translated correctly as mentioned in the article, is pretty clear in the fact that he's focusing on PC and not other consoles.

Lightning775d ago

That it a correct assessment yes.

Jin_Sakai5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

“Totoki-san didn't issue any such clarification anywhere. He did not say anywhere or at any time that he doesn't mean Xbox and Switch.“

He also didn’t say anywhere that he did mean Xbox or Switch.

Einhander19725d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Typical, you write an article that correctly states that he is talking about PC, then you go directly into the comments to misinform people about what you just wrote.

And you're not the only person who can read Japanese. He does not say anything about xbox or Switch in the entirety of his message. You are just saying what you want to hear and what you want people to think.

The Microsoft agents on the web are going hard into a pressure campaign to manipulate the messaging in Microsoft favor.

Abriael4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

@Einhander1972: You don't seem to be able to read English considering that you appear to have completely misread my comment.

Read it again. Slowly. You literally repeated what I said and then said I'm wrong lol.

You really should chill, being a console warrior is unhealthy. Makes you see "agents" of the "enemy" in every shadow. 😂

After Sony changed their mind on PC support... guess we can truly never say never.

The question that people should be asking is will publishing on rival consoles really be the ONLY thing Microsoft do that Sony don’t?

Sony have followed in Microsoft’s footsteps (and I will remind people I think it’s a mistake but the fact is they ARE doing it) every step of the way. They did cross gen exclusives. Then they did PC releases. Then day 1 PC releases in this case and seriously with how Helldivers did you can’t expect them to keep their word on not doing day 1 PC games now.

I believe Sony will be watching how it works for Microsoft and if they see their fanbase accepting it they’ll start doing it.

Reaper22_5d ago

That's false. He didn't say that. I've noticed that you like to input your own version of a made up fact. Sony has already brought games to PC so it makes no sense for them to announce it. They will be putting more games than MLB The Show on xbox in the future. They'll be doing similar things that Microsoft are doing. The only difference is that Microsoft is telling us now. Sony is doing to slowly spill it...lol

XiNatsuDragnel5d ago

Yes they'll do pc not day 1 it's a stagger release which imo is cooler than day1.

XiNatsuDragnel5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Who knows? Maybe but if it's so I'll go buy pc and switch and won't get a ps6 simple I'll save money long term doing that. If not then good for me, my goal is a reason to buy a console still. Exclusives is a reason because it's a justifiable and substantial argument that I follow. This modern argument everyone should play games everywhere essentially go pc because everything is a pc these days. So I'm going to root with that logic.

anast5d ago

"get a ps6 simple"

If you don't mind eating $1600 in cost to play those games.

XiNatsuDragnel5d ago

Actually my pc was 800 when I was bought and it plays most amazingly so yes you're right on expenses but for Me I'm going pay another 200 for new parts and it's been decade so yeah I'm Gucci @anast.

anast5d ago

"was 800 when"

I am 100% certain your $800 doesn't run like a PS5 and it definitely doesn't run like a PS6

XiNatsuDragnel4d ago

@Anast

That was 10 years ago it beyond ps4 back then now I'll get parts for 200 to upgrade it to be beyond ps5/6. Again pc isn't super expensive it depends on rig and type of rig you want.
