I thought this week I would discuss one of the best PlayStation Move games. You know those wands you bought that had the light up ping pong ball on the top of them? Sure, they are collecting dust right now, but once Project Morpheus comes out I think they will become an integral for said device.
Sports Champions is the equivalent of Wii Sports from the Wii. It lets you use you new motion controlled wands to play different games including Disc Golf, Archery, Gladiator Combat, Table Tennis, Volley Ball, and Bocce Ball. Some were quite good, and I remember my wife and I playing quite a bit of Bocce Ball. The Archery was really fun as well. Unfortunately with all of it’s positives it still lacked something similar to what made Wii Sports special, and even ended up looking like a clone of it in the process.
I recently dug up: Sports Champions. Over here in the UK where I am, the Commonwealth games have recently come to an end. For those of you not aware of what they are, think of them as a smaller version of the Olympics but for countries that at one time or another were under British rule.
One of the reasons that I really appreciate the company behind our beloved console is that Sony does a fantastic job supporting small, unproven game developers. Sony gave thatgamecompany a three-title contract that resulted in the fine trifecta flOw, Flower, and Journey. In 2008, Sony made a similar deal with Giant Sparrow, and their first title, The Unfinished Swan (released exclusively to PSN on Oct. 16, 2012) is a winner.
With Sports Champions 2 launching later this month on October 30th, a demo has been announced to be coming to the US PSN store today.
“Today, we’re excited to give you a free taste of the experience with a demo on PSN. In the demo, you’ll have a chance to start working up a sweat in a singles Tennis match against the AI, play a hole of Golf for one to two players, and try out a fast flying and jumping Ski run for up to two players.”
