Playstation Move: First week reaction

Sony’s Playstation Move has been out for about a week now and the reaction to the new gadget has been very positive. If you have not had the chance to give it a test run then you had better run round to your nearest friend’s house and check it out!

Plenty of online reviews and customer feedback surveys in stores have give the shiny new product a 4-5 star rating, which will raise the expectation now from the Microsoft Kinect. Check out this review for the Move from Electric Pig, which explains all of the pros and cons in nice detail.

We must remember that the Playstation Move is in fact an add on to the PS3, however the fresh new features and gameplay style it brings are as if it is a new console. I would describe it as a PS3 and Wii hybrid. The immense advantage of the Move only being an add on is price, as you can pick up the starter pack for a very generous £45 ($70). That includes the motion controller, Playstation Eye and the set up disc. We also reported in another one of our articles of the “Gun Attachment” that would be released for the Move.

If you already have the camera from previous games such as Singstar, then you can purchase just the motion controller for £30 ($47). Either way this is an extreme bargain in terms of the fun it is going to generate in the household, especially around Christmas time. We are preparing ourselves for an all out war between the Move and Kinect this December and it could get very interesting. We already know that the Move is cheaper than the Kinect, so for people with tight pockets this could prove crucial.

Have you played on the Move yet, if not are you planning to get one? Let us know your thoughts on this by leaving us a comment.

    It's a dud - whilst at JB HiFi last night I saw two customers returning it and the staff said the feedback from the few customers who purchased under the promo offer ($79) was not good…

    Move looks really stupid and the games look even worse. I don't think anyone even cares about this thing since it just seems like a blatant imitation of Wii to most consumers.
