Well two days to go for some PlayStation Move goodness and it seems like SONY is heating things up down the final stretch. Today, they released a video which shows a bunch of different things in which you can expect from Sports Champions Archery.
Tomorrow get your Gladiator Dual on!
For those of you interested in the PS3 and the MOVE might want to look into this. Yes, this looks some what expensive since it’s $599 + $16.72 for shipping & handling, but if you really think about everything that you are getting, it’s really not that much. Remember the PS3 when it first released was $600 alone. QVC is running this for TODAY ONLY so if you are thinking of getting it as a present act quick.
It’s pretty wild with all of the things it includes, I wasn’t even aware a bunch of this stuff was out there. Check out the Bow, Table Paddles, Frizbee, and Sword/Shield to help you with the MOVE games.
I put together a video of game play from PlayStation’s Sports Champions Table Tennis and Wii Sports Resort Table Tennis in a side by side comparison. I played a game as normally as possible. I played a game simply waggling either controller back and forth and I played a game frantically wailing either controller back and forth.
What did I find?
- On the PlayStation version, if I hold the controller at a medium level and stand in the middle of the table, I can hit the ball a decent amount of times when simply waggling back and forth.
- On the Wii version, when simply waggling back and forth, I just about always hit the ball, I just didn’t have much control over the ball.
- It is possible to play the Wii while waving the Wiimote above your head like a cowboy.
- It is not possible to play the PlayStation while waving the Move above above your head like a cowboy.
- The Wii is fun to play.
- The PlayStation is too.
Can’t wait for the MOVE to come out? Need as much info or footage of the MOVE as possible? Well here is something that hopefully carries you over. Jeff Rubenstein and Sid Shuman are here to save the day. A video was just posted of the MOVE unboxing by the both of them with a little information on what you can expect to come with it and the price points. This isn’t really anything new but it’s just nice to see them ramp up the coverage as we count down to the 17th or 19th depending on where you live.
On a side note, anyone else like what SONY has done with their video rep introduction?

I was playing the demo for the PlayStation Move game Sports Champions, Table Tennis, with my step-son earlier. He kept flailing the Move controller around like he was having a mini seizure in his hand. This is how he typically plays most motion control games. I handily beat him in a 5 point match. This video just goes to show that you can’t wildly wave your hand around and expect to successfully play a PlayStation Move supported game. You actually have recreate the actual actions as if you were participating in real life. This is what they call that 1 to 1 tracking.
If you ever thought the PlayStation Move was simply a Wii knock off, I can assure you that Sony is re-writing the rule book when it comes to motion control. Like I say in the preceding video, Kevin Butler told us this stuff months ago (actually a couple of months from now).
