I’m impressed. How come nobody posted even a quick note about Sorcery, the upcoming title SCE will bring us? It was first announced at E3 2010, and it uses the new PlayStation Move controllers. And it is a blast!
You will take the role of a magic apprentice, and must protect people from the evil Nightmare Queen, which broke a pact with men. Inspired by the traditional Irish/Celtic mythology, it will let you use twelve different arcane magics, including manipulating elemental powers, like fire, wind, ice, etc. Heck, you can brew elixirs using the Move controller to “mix” the potions.
It’s just not a hack’n’slash, though. You’ll need to solve puzzles and numerous quests for townsfolk, like rescuing kidnapped children and finding ancient magic in city ruins.
The comparison to the Harry Potter games is inevitable, but Sorcery’s atmosphere looks darker and it seems more polished to me. Its mechanics will be used in all sort of wizardry/sorcery/alchemist games, includingÂ the upcoming Harry Potter title itself.
Sorcery will be available in the Q2 2011 (why will it take so long?!? :D). E3 presentation after the break…
So now we finally know what the price of these accessories are, and what’s included in the bundles. First of all, the standard Move controller has an MSRP of $49.99. If my memory serves me right, that’s about the same as the DualShock 3. The Navigation Controller (which will be used mostly for games that require you to run and move around) will have an MSRP of $29.99, and, of course, the Eye is still at $39.99.
As far as the bundle goes? It includes the Move controller, the Eye, a free copy of Sports Champions (which is, apparently, really fun based off of people who have played it), and a Move demo disc, and that will retail for $99.99 (MSRP). Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a Nav controller, or a second Move controller, so I don’t see some of the games being able to work unless you had another Move controller (sword fighting and archery come to mind). The accessories go on sale on September 19th (though, apparently, the bundle will be on sale on September 21st). September 15th in the EU and October 21st in Japan.
Sure the upcoming Move controller looks great but what if you want more than your arms to influence a game, like to be able to kick some dude in the head? Well with upcoming Kung-Fu Live you will be the star on screen thanks to “Freemotion technology” so know you can pull your groin attempting to kick the end of level boss in the kidney. Now I’m not trying to say that the Eye has the technology to be as good as what Natal is, but it’s interesting to see a game on PS3 using your body as the controller like Natal rather than just Move which is operated with your arms.
Hit the jump to see a video
A little over a week ago Engadget showed a video of Anton Mikhailov and what the future of the Playstation Move may have in store. Now they are showing us some extra footage of why it’s a bad idea to go head to head againstÂ a developer as well as aÂ little about what he does for a living and where he would like the technology to go.
First video shows somebody using the PlayStation Move with Socom 4. Looks like it’s pretty easy to jump into and controls well. I would love to try this out for myself.
The second video shows a little more Socom 4. After that it shows how to calibrate the PlayStation Move. Then a little Sports Champions action.
The Playstation Game Developers Conference verified the recent post by Tosh, that Sony’s new motion controller is indeed known as the Sony Move. Scott Rohde then announced that “Sports Champions” will be one of the first games for the …
