144w ago - As a follow-up to their previous PlayStation Move video, today Mucu from GamesOnSmash.com (linked above) shared two more, spotlighting Sony's PS3 Motion Controller working with music along with showcasing the Tumble PS3 demo.
Although it does work, based on his experience with fast-forwarding music via PlayStation Move he recommends doing it the normal way instead.
To quote: "In this video I am showing Tumble, which I actually think is the most impressive demo on the Move demo disc.
It's basically a virtual version of Jenga, but it has plenty more to do. Watch the video and get excited because this could be a hit for the Move when it releases."
Those interested can check out the PlayStation Move videos below!
144w ago - It wouldn't be fair to only show off girls demoing the Nintendo Wii, so today courtesy of PlayStationTaiwan via YouTube we have a video spotlighting Taiwanese girls demoing Kung Fu Rider on Sony's upcoming PlayStation Move PS3 Motion Controller.
For those curious, Kung Fu Rider (previously known as Slider) is an upcoming 2010 action video game for the PlayStation 3 developed by Japan Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for use with the new PlayStation Move controller.
Players take the role of Tobio or Karin in the game, Tobio is a typical white-collar office worker while Karin is his secretary who has to escape from the Yakuza in Tokyo.
Players have to utilize the Move controller to navigate through the crowded streets of Hong Kong, HKSAR on a sliding office chair. Players can move the controller up and down to increase speed while tilting it left and right would turn the chair while tapping the Move button would cause the character to spin and kick items out of the way.
Players can cruise through the streets hopping over cars, juke left, right and pick up money along the way which act as points in the game and sliding through onscreen ticket outlines which will boost the game's meter which can trigger a burst of speed by jabbing at the PlayStation Eye.
144w ago - DDR Music Composer Naoki Maeda has announced today that DanceDanceRevolution is coming to PS3 complete with PlayStation Move support, and those who wish to check out a demo can do so today in LA.
To quote: My name is Naoki Maeda, and I'm the Music Composer and one of the creators of DanceDanceRevolution! If you're not familiar with DanceDanceRevolution, it's the cult favorite arcade game and pioneering dance game that started it all!
If you followed the franchise, you know that we've been a part of the PlayStation family for years now. In fact, we recently teamed with the SCEA and the state of West Virginia to bring DanceDanceRevolution with the PlayStation 2, to all of the public schools in the state of West Virginia.
This program, designed to combat childhood obesity, was a big hit -- with Governor Joe Manchinpraising it and Michelle Obama even stating President Obama has DanceDanceRevolution.
With each year and each iteration of DanceDanceRevolution, we work to bring new and fun challenges to players -- which leads us to today, where I'm happy to announce DanceDanceRevolution...
