"Why so much 'hate'?"5.0 starson by Po_Panda
Pros: Very accurate
Rechargeable battery (like the DS3 controller)
Blue Tooth connection
Gladiator Duel is awesome!
Variety of options to obtain it (wand, bundle, etc.)
Previously released games can be updated via software patch to use with it
Cons: Very limited amount of GOOD launch titles
My arm(s) hurt!
If the room is 'too bright' it can affect the performance (I have not experienced it, but have been warned about the possibility)
Summary: First things first. I played with the PS3 Move at PAX 2010 and was not completely impressed with it (Aragon's Quest). However, the concept of playing with a motion controller that utilized HD graphics was too appealing for me to ignore. I am so glad I did not discriminate because of ONE game.
The bundle comes with Sports Champions. ALL the games are fun! BUT the two most addicting games to me were Gladiator Duel (why my arm(s) hurt!) and Archery. I can not even begin to tell you how fun Gladiator is! If you put a whole hearted effort into the games, you will enjoy it to no end. That is the case with all the games I am sure. I even learned some things that the system is capable of doing that you can only learn through trial and error. I can tell you that there is more to the game play than meets 'the eye' (pun intended).
Two nights I picked it up and played, and both nights I played until 4AM. It was that addicting. Thank goodness I have HALO Reach to play while my arms recoup. But I digress...
The disc golf is a good showcase of the capabilities of Move as well.
I am looking forward to seeing how Heavy Rain will work once they patch the game to be used with Move. It will be amazing. I have heard mixed reviews of the RE5 Gold Edition patch, but I don't have that game to judge. Also, Tiger Woods 2011 will be getting (or has gotten) a patch to use with Move too. So I think it is safe to say that a lot of games that already exist can be patched up to utilize Move controllers. Which will be awesome!
If they come out with a Soul Caliber game with Move controllers...I will need arm transplants!
I encourage anyone who wants to try something different and if you have the funds, go for it! I have all 3 current gen consoles and I can honestly say my experience with Move has been better than with the Wii. I will hold judgement on Kinect though. Although I have read a lot of bad things about it in the gaming media and I also wasn't that impressed with it at PAX 2010 either. But hey, I wasn't impressed with PS3 Move there either...
I'm a 40ish year old gamer, I play a lot of games on all consoles, portable handheld systems and PC. I'm having fun with it and I think you will too if you give it a fair shot and immerse yourself in the intent of the experience.
