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".Read more ›
Here's what you will need to fully enjoy PlayStation Move:
PlayStation Eye Camera (included)
PlayStation Move Controller (included)
Navigation Controller (NOT INCLUDED)
A GAME!!!!! (NOT INCLUDED)
Even the basic Wii Sports was included with the Wii console. The Move Controller and Navigation controller are a lot like the Wii Nunchuck (but better). Nintendo were kind enough to include Wii Sports when buying their product so why couldn't Sony do the same? You need the four items listed above to properly experience PlayStation Move but this package only includes two of them. That's HALF of what you need. Hardly a 'Starter Pack' is it?
Unfortunately you WILL have to buy the PlayStation Move Navigation Controller (PS3) at extra cost. Sony never fully supported the Move controller or encouraged developers to take advantage of it. I can honestly say that there are only about 10 worthy Move games out there.
Just keep in mind that this package only gives you HALF of what you need.
Quite frankly this is an expensive starter pack, especially since it only comes with one orb controller and a camera (although to buy them both seperately will still set you back more). But then to get the full experience you will have to go out and buy a navigation controller (about £15 - £20) and a clip to attach your camera to the TV. Which is a lot of money combined.
However saying that, I'm glad I did get it as part of the bundle, as it is a lot of fun. It essentially turns your PS3 into a Wii, and you can play similar type games (such as sports games etc) with the rest of your family/friends. So for those people who want that experience as well as having the PS3 to yourself for more traditional games, then it is an excellent buy. (Certainly cheaper than buying a seperate wii, and the games are much, much superior.)
I'd say getting this controller at this point in time is more an investment for the future. Past titles for the PS3 move have been bland at best, sticking to the Wii route of bland family orientated games that people can play at parties or at christmas when the family are round, sports titles, move fitness, start the party and the like. However, there are a number of mainstream games now that are beginning to incorporate the move within their games as well as being able to use the traditional controller, Amazing Spiderman for example, or the horror title until dawn, which uniquely uses the move as an in game torch.Read more ›
The graphics are better than the wii and it all works okay but I prefer to use the PS3 for regular gaming without 'move'. I just feel that the PS3 was designed to be comfortable to play lounging around with a highly polished game such as God of war, GT, Fifa or COD, etc. - and I feel the move accessory does not allow you to do that. I tried Killzone 3 with the sharpshooter - but after all the hassle and expense I was disappointed and uncomfortable after 20 mins. Much preferred Killzone 3 in the normal way with the regular PS3 dual shock controller. Sorcery came with the 'move', it was played for 4-5 minutes then placed back in to its box where it has lived ever since. Prefer the PS3 for regular high quality gaming, leave all the jumping around to Nintendo Wii.
