Finally some videos of the motion controller being used in a real game. Sorry I don’t know what they are saying. Looks like a interesting way to use it in LittleBigPlanet. On Resident Evil 5, you have to hold a Dual Shock 3 in addition to the motion controller. I tried this myself at home but used a remote in place of the motion controller and it felt ok. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Sony version of the Wii nunchuk

It nice that they are incorporating the PlayStation Eye instead of having us buy a new PlayStation Eye. What do you think of the final design? I’m sure that it may change a little before release though. Here are some more photos of the PlayStation Motion Controller from the Press Event last night. No video just yet.
For all of you wanting to know what the final design is, here you go.
So, you heard about that price-cut for the wii? Well don’t waste your money (Or time) on that, and wait for something along the lines of this. The Playstation UI: Motion Controller. At TGS, they showed demos of Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition and LittleBigPlanet running with the motion control scheme, which, to me, is exhilarating.
For RE5, it sounds like one person is using the analog sticks to move and the other guy aims and shoots. Sounds awkward for when you want to play alone though; hopefully they describe the controls more later on. As for LBP, when you’re by yourself its no different, but with co-op, the other player moves around and shoots objects out the way and collects bubbles for you. Maybe I should take back what I said about the Wii. The Motion Controller is to be out by Spring.

As of right now, I’m not 100% sure if these will be made available in either North American or PAL territories, but Sony has announced at it’s SCEJ Press Conference the FFXIII Bundle, called the Lightning Edition, which includes a 250GB hard drive and is white with a red Lightning design on the face of the console (thanks to No Kill Tayler pointing out where to find the pic). The bundle will retail for 41,600 yen and will be for sale on December 17th, day and date with the standalone software.
Also of note, Final Fantasy VIII will be made available on the PlayStation Store (at least, in Japan) on Thursday for 1,500 yen. Hopefully it will hit state side and across the pond tomorrow as well. I’m sure one of my favorites, FFIX, will soon follow suit in a couple months.
This video was shown at the end of the White Knight Chronicles media event. I’m still unsure of what the gameplay is actually like, but looking back on their previous games, it won’t be anything short of jaw dropping.
Remember when the Shadow of the Colossus demo came out and a lot of us got it in the mail (being signed up for the PlayStation Underground) and you came across that first colossi? It literally took my breath away. It was definitely one of the gems of the PS2 era, and also managed to get the Greatest Hits status in the process. If you ever get the chance, be sure to check it out.
The Official Blog will have an interview with Team ICO Director and Game Designer Fumito Ueda sometime soon, and as soon as that pops up, we’ll get it on here for you guys (and gals).
