Sony’s Live press conference has just finished and pretty much the entire thing was Sony showing off the (finally names) PlayStation Move controller. They showed many games and demos in the span of 40 minutes, games like SOCOM 4, LittleBigPlanet, EyePet, fighting games, tabble tennis, and much more in real time on stage. Most games shown were just from Sony but they did say that 36 publishers are confirmed to support the PlayStation Move and there is expected to be 20 games this fiscal year that support the Move.

They also announced that the Move will come in multiple bundles, this includes the bundle with the Move and the PlayStation Eye for “less than” $100. The other bundle they announced was that they will be packaging the Move with the PlayStation 3, which will sell alongside the regular PS3′s without Move’s bundled in the box. A “sub-controller” was also announced which acts as the Wii’s nun-chuck and will have an analogue stick on it which will be used for games like shooters. So what do you guys think of the Move? Is it better than the Wiimote?

    Yea, the Playstation Move looked very improved since E3 and they had a very good presentation to show it off, I just hope that Sony supports the 3rd party and the move is very successful……and they also showed off Socom 4 and they said quote ” The whole story mode is playable using the Playstation Move.

      To be honest, it doesn’t matter what Sony calls it. People are still going to bitch about it because it’s Sony and people like to complain about everything they do, even though they are a LOT more consumer-centric regarding the pricing of their products. I am personally glad they decided to make a bundle with it. Also, the fact they are going to allow you to use it on a big game like Socom will help hardcore gamers become more interested.

    This peripheral looks it was force out to the market in order to compete with the Wii, it looks like a RIP OFF if you ask me.

    @projectx126:
    i think its actually going to have 5 player co-op because there are 5 people in your squad, and the gameplay they showed looked nothing like the ps2 socoms cuz there was a cover system, you could sprint and it had similar aiming as uncharted 2. I think they are trying to attract a larger crowd which might piss off some veterens but we’ll see

    @Machee: you stupid piece of shit if you had taken the time to actually see how big the difference between the wii and this is you wouldnt be saying any of the shit, just shows how much of a fanboy you realy are. The technologies developed to make the playstation move work are 10x more complicated and sophisticated than the wii. and if anything was rushed it is the wii, ever wonder why you can throw a baseball(in wii sports) pitch by just flicking the controller? you can’t do that shit in ps3 its much more realistic. so get your facts right you worthless piece of crap.

    @PunjabiCowCrap

    Why are you even comparing how better the PS Move is to the Wii’s almost 4 year old nunchuck controller??? you’re the stupid cow crap fanboy. Stop defending you’re PS Move, because on how it’s designed and made it’s definitely just a Wii RIP OFF! with much improvement. When Nintendo comes out with its Wii HD (or next console), their controller will either be the same performance with the MOVE or better somehow…but again lets not forget who started it all, because after a few years from now PS3 fanboys like you will be calling Nintendo new controller a rip off.

    @Rico

    Natal is innovation, don’t fucking tell me it’s a rip off the Eye Toy because Sony had years of chances of improving that thing and making something out of it but instead focused on some piece of RIP OFF! Wii’s controller. Natal is very much talked about and took motion sensing to the next level, so lets just wait for MS Conference ok

    @Machee: you are the dumbest piece of shit i have seen in ages. if nintendo came out with motion controllers doesn’t mean that its their idea, other companies are gonna make better technology for same purpose and thats what Sony did. and again you retarded fuck the whole concept was built from scratch for ps move. sony used what it had and developed a superior controller with the playstation eye. nintendo just produced a piece of crap that is nothing but a novelty item. Nintendo claimed to provide motion controllers but they did’nt respond in real time so in my opinion the real motion controller is the ps move. and i will defend it because it needs to be defended.

    As For Natal- at this point ps move is better than natal, for natal in most of the games you will need something physical because it will be awkward playing a games by just swinging your arms around. and thats where ps move has the advantage. BUT as an interface natal can go very far just not in gaming.

    @blumatt: LOL WHAT? they are a lot more consumer centric about the pricing of their products? hmm thats why they priced the ps3 at 600, 700 in canada and the pspgo where u cant even play ur old psp games at 250, and now that they see ms is making bare money on live they wanna get their own premium service and mimic and also copy the wii mote and make it better, sony has really failed as of late they have fallen of as the leader and are trying anything to get back up there even blatant rip offs

    @XPUNJABIX: so natal is a rip off of eye toy but the move is not of the wii mote? i dont get it

    @baller: when did i ever say natal is a rip off i didnt say anything is a rip off. i said natal is not suited best for gaming but for other purposes like computer interface and shit like that. stop trying to twist what i say and give them a different meaning, like the fox “news” channel.
