No. It promises to do it better. Wait until these actually come out. If the developers just do flashy waggle games, this will not be better (although I expect reviewers to hypocritically ignore their waggle criticisms even if the control is identical). If some developers make games using full motion that Motion+ has yet to do, that will be a better thing.

But wait. Don't assume the promises here actually make the product better.

I actually saw footage of it, and the press is playing with the games right now. I saw no waggle during the Socom 4 demonstration. So if the press are playing with it, that means its real. I watched the conference. I'm waiting for more hands-on with people later.

Just wait until it gets proved that you can play these games with your arm at rest. If you have to elevate your arm for shooting type games then it'll be worse than waggle.

Btw its not about how responsive the game is, its about how fun the game is.

I saw the one guy playing Socom 4 with his arm at rest, basically with mouse-like precision. I didn't see him have to move anything around once.

Of course it's about how fun the game is. That's what gamings about.

At least they got that right, good to know.



Do you know what its like to live on the far side of Uranus?

I didn't mean the waggle motion. I meant the weak or tacked-on controls that plagued Wii games before. For all we know, SOCOM is just ripping the controls used for some of the top tier Wii FPS.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

yep, i would wait till e3, either way, the wii wil always be there, and the ps move will just keep getting better news as time passes by, i strongly recommend waiting before making a 200$ investment

From what Sony showed from 1st party, very little involved waggle.

The street fighting game had much more impressive motion gaming than anything i've seen on Wii.

And i fail to see how the red part of your post is anything other than your opinion. Move has already proven it is massively accurate, and it also uses a camera. I don't see how it will automatically be a better thing.

how is it just ripping the controls? what part of 1 to 1 motion dont you understand?

Socom 4 isn't a FPS. So i fail to see how this works...

Plus, Move offers 1:1 Motion from the box. You don't need the add-on. So it is very unlikely it will have, as you say, "tacked-on" controls, which are by the way still plaguing the Wii.



After seeing the video and the lineup I'm thinking the opposite. Stick with the traditional games and controls for my PS3 and forget about Move.



Thought it was a stupid idea at first, now re-considering after seeing Motion Fighters.



Currently playing: Marvel vs. Capcom 3, League of Legends

I'm still gonna wait. If I start seeing Wii games being ported to the PS3 then its gonna be a really hard choice. No More Heroes is coming to the PS3 but I'm not sure if thats gonna take advantage of Move or not. Though they could easily work it in with an update.
