The Playstation Move was released in September of 2010 and was called the “Wii HD” by consumers. While using this product I have found this name to be false.
The Playstation Move is priced at $99.99 for the PS3 which includes a controller, a game, and a camera.
The set up for the move is simple. To set up the Playstation Move you must charge your controller and insert your Eye camera via usb to the PS3. Then you must place your Eye in the middle of your TV or on top of it. Then on the xmb menu go to settings, accessory settings, and then go to collaborate Playstation Move. After collaborating your controller you are ready to play the game of your choice.
The $99 bundle comes with a game called Sports Champions. Which is similar to Wii sports. The sports in this game include disc golf, gladiator duel, beach volleyball, archery, table tennis, and bocce. This game is playable up to 4 users. This game is decent for the fact that it comes standard in the bundle. It is a fun game especially with friends. The are good for what is being played. Also the game is easy to learn how to play and is smooth. There are many games with Move support such as Killzone 3, MLB 11 The Show, Little Big Planet 2, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011, NBA 2K11, and many more and more being announced at this year’s E3.
The Playstation Move is a great motion gaming experience. I have both the Move and the Wii and the Move and without a doubt the Move trumps it in almost every category, such as realism, and graphics. The graphics in a move supported game such as Killzone 3 are amazing with stunningly realistic graphics. One of Sony’s selling points in their commercial to sell their product was the point that you must actually get into the game. For a game such as ping-pong on the Wii all you have to do is flick your wrist to hit the ball. On the Move you actually have to hit the ball as if you are playing ping pong. The move also trumps the Wii on accuracy even with the Wii motion plus it still is less accurate because the Move has a camera which can precisely track 360 degrees. In the end the Move has a lot of potential, and I am looking forward to the plans Sony has for this stellar device.
