uh… are gamers irate or something??
Well, judging from the comments on several gaming sites, people are not giving Sony much love right now. The negative comments about the Wii have temporarily stopped while gamers negatively comment on Sony’s new Move controller for the PS3. They weren’t so mad back at E3… but NOW… they mad, brah. Probably because we saw some actual games. After seeing those games, the Move is being labeled as a Wii rip-off.
And if you actually see the Move, it’s pretty easy to see why.
As you can see, it’s like a Wii remote with a friggin ping pong ball on top of it. How exciting.
Now, it’s unfair to say that having motion control itself makes a system a Wii rip-off. Because Microsoft and Sony were bound to jump on that bandwagon eventually. The thing is, we really see no originality in this Move controller. I mean, with Natal (which I am not very excited for, by the way) they at least tried to make it original. I don’t think it will really “change entertainment” like they think it will. But in any case, there’s no shame in it. Unless it ends up sucking. Now, Move, as I said, is not original.
Of course, it’s supposedly better than Wii remote with Wii Motion Plus. It’s definitely better than the Wii remote by itself. But better than Wii Motion Plus? Some sources have said that there is not much truth to that. That’s unsurprising. Wii Motion Plus gave me true one to one motion control. Does it need to be recalibrated every once and a while? Yes, yes it does. It also gets a bit out of place at times, but that’s easily fixed. Well, with Move, I’ve read… some different opinions. Some say it’s good. Some say it’s not quite there yet. I did read that that boxing game wasn’t even 1:1. Which is lame.
Obviously, the games seen were not final. So we’ll see what happens when this thing comes out.
Buuuut… the price point is around 100 dollars. That’s not exactly a good deal when you take into account the price of the console.
Well, that’s all I have to say on the subject for the moment.
I don’t got much else to say at this time. Except to go here to get a free iPod.
