Extremely Fun! Motion technology in HD!,
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 3 Move Starter Pack with PlayStation Eye Camera and Move Controller (PS3) (Video Game)
#THIS PACK IS ONLY REQUIRED IF YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY OWN A PLAYSTATION EYE CAMERA, IF YOU HAVE ONE ALREADY CLICK: Playstation Move Controller - Black (PS3)#
PlayStation Move really is great, from the first touch you get with it you know your going to have fun with this controller.
The feel of it is extremely comfortable, it fits perfectly into you hand and it has a very nice weight too it. The Main controller looks rather sleek and cool, and although the ball may look alil odd at first, but when you actually get in the game and it changes colour, it really does look pretty awesome.
The controller comes with a wrist band, so if you think you may get over excited when playing then I suggest you attach it to avoid any broken TV's :)
It doesn't come with a USB lead, but you should already have one anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem.
Setting up the controller is easy as counting 1,2,3:
1) Plug in the USB cable to the rear end of the controller.
2) Press the 'PS' Button to sync your controller with the PS3.
3) Make sure your PlayStation Eye is connected and is either at the top of your TV or bottom. (Set to Wide-angle view)
The controller consists of a few buttons; The four basic buttons of Square, Circle, Square and 'X' at the front along with the 'PS' button and the new "Move" button, which is basically the confirm button, and at the sides you have the Start & Select Buttons. On the reverse side near the top is the Trigger button, which is also known as button "T".
Scrolling through the XMB with this controller is very easy, hold the "T" button and move the direction you want to go, please note that it's very sensitive and will require a bit of practice to get used too.
As for games, at the moment their isn't a lot of titles out that are compatible with PlayStation Move at this very point of time, however the ones out are extremely fun! There are some updates for games which can be downloaded for free on the PSN Store that will let you use PlayStation Move on them such as "High Velocity Bowling" and "Eye Pet". The Sports Champions game so far has been the best to play with, encase you were wondering what game to get first.
The enjoyment I've had with using this product so far has been outstanding, I was amazed after a quick calibration on how accurate the controller is.
If you've played with the Wii before you will notice it's a lot smoother, more accurate and definitely more comfortable to play with and an even bigger bonus the games you play are in High-Definition, which is something the Wii is not capable of doing.
Overall this is a fantastic product, I would recommend getting another Playstation Move Controller - Black (PS3) if you have the extra money, as I believe some games (not all) require two.

Excellently structured and argued review! Will read it again thoroughly when I decide to invest in the Move - I have way too many games to still play before then. Thanks for the clarification and the links to the Navigational controller. Have you tried it with 'proper' games like Killzone 3 and Heavy Rain?
I really couldn't care about the promotional games but with the 'full' games I'd certainly be interested to hear feedback. Maybe you could review one if you have it? I like your clear and detailed style.

Thank you very much :)
I currently do not own a lot of titles for Move at the moment, however I have played 'Dead Space: Extraction' which is a great example of what the move can do, it was really responsive and very accurate, as for 'Killzone 3' I have seen positive reviews online about the Move feature (especially with the Sharpshooter attachment) although I haven't personally tried it out for myself yet.

Hi fabulous review.. Could you please tell me, how long is the cable to the eye? As all our equipment is in a cabinet, quite a way, from the TV..

Hello, thank you very much. :)
I believe the cable is around 2m+ (it's a little longer than my 2m HDMI cable), hope this helps. :)

Is the Eye pet camera the same camera for the PS move?
