Commercial Break: Moved to near boredom by new PS3 ad

6 September 2010

Oooh, the Playstation Move is almost here! You know, the motion-sensor controller that has a big stupid-looking coloured ball on the end and lets you play games in a Nintendo Wii style, three years after the Wii itself.

Here’s a new ad from Sony that shows off just how amazing life will be once you allow the PS Move into it. Well, amazing if you’ve been living in a cave since 2007 and have never seen a Wii before. Otherwise, the dramatic, crashing music and quick-cut visuals will probably lead you to conclude that… it’s just like a Wii then?

Stupid coloured ball.

    oh dear, badwagon late joining. I've been doing this since 2007 on the wii. motion control is so last decade.

    Why do they say it's not for kids and then show some kids dancing to a kid's game?

    Good graphics don't make good games but shit graphics do make shit games.

    I'll reserve judgement until some "decent" games start coming out for it. RE4 on the wii, is still a superb game.

    So are they going to force awkward Move controls into most games now like they did with the sixaxis? The only bonus I can see with the new weird dildo looking controller is basically having a Wii with better graphics.

    I have been playing with my own joystick since 1985 when my auntie bought a VCR and instead of a normal film it came with a XXX. Much better than WII and this. Sometimes a let my girlfriend play with it as well.

    I really don't like the idea of the 360's kinect but at least it brings something new to the table. This is just a straight port of Wii technology.

    I was wondering where all the hype in the magazines was this month about MOVE then Looking at all the reviews of the Move i see why they werent shouting about it. I have Moved(lol) from a must buy on day of launch to a wait and see. Only one game semi worth considering on launch thats just pathetic, when Wii launched it had more games and a Zelda for the gamers out there. Im waiting until some better games come along, dont need another set of controllers hanging around.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-the-case-for-playstation-move-article I must really find Kaz Hirai's DeLorean time machine so I too can jump on band wagons 3 years before the product is released. Not yet convinced about the move, but have a feeling like it might be something like guitar hero where when I first played it round my brother's, I was on play.com (back when it was still brilliant) 10 minutes later ordering it for myself. Anyway my brother is getting a Move on launch so will try before I buy yet again. And kinect bringing something new *eyetoy says: "hello there"* and if you respond with "but, but the accuracy of kinect...." then how would that be different to the accuracy of move over the wii?

    2006 actually. Wii was released in November 2006. Making it the #1 x-mas gift. I should know, was the Nintendo fan-boi on the waiting list. By the time DSGi got off their arses it was February by the time I got it. @The Real Bob. If you like RE4. Try House of the Dead: Overkill or even RE: Umbrella Chronicles /pedantry
