This might be a bit late for this review but im a new member so reviewing as much as I can :P Playstation move is basically sony's attempt to include a proper motion controller like the wii and kinect. Is it able to stand out however?
It hands down beats the wii controller. It is so much more precise. I assume it is because of how it is detected. For example when comparing the tennis games. On the wii you can basically swing in a direction and that is where the ball will go. On the playstation it is far more complex and allows you to actually hit the ball in such a way as to induce a spin. This may not sound like much but in my opinion (having owned a wii, move and kinect) playstation move has by far the greatest precision of all 3. (It is also the only one I now still own).
I do not want to come across as a sony fan boy, but again having owned all the major competitors in this market I think I can make a fair comparison between them. In my honest opinion playstation move does have the greatest responsiveness of the 3. There is no lag between movement and it appearing on the screen. Although now the wii U has been released this is at the same level of the move.
Ouch. Yeah it is quite pricey. You need the camera and a move controller and the other controller (one with the analogue). Also if you want to experience the best of the move controller you will want to play with friends, so a minimum of two sets of controllers are most likely needed. It will probably be the most costly of the 3.
I quite like the feel. It is far smoother to hold than the very rectangular wii controller (obviously not as smooth as the controllerless kinect though haha). Overall it is easy to hold and not uncomfortable. The buttons are all easy to press so overall very good.
Yes there are a few, some silly things to make your controller look like a gun etc. I never purchased any of these because in all fairness they are not necessary. If you are interested in them go look them up on ebay and see if there is anything you like.
In my honest opinion the playstation move is far superior to the wii controller. Although given sony's fans are generally slightly older/serious than nintendo's they have not made that many games for move which is a shame. It is quite pricey but if you enjoy motion gaming give this a shot.
