After spending some time with PlayStation Move themselves, some of the industry's top critics have seen first-hand the power and precision of the PlayStation Move platform.
As a result, Move has been recognized with one of the industry's most coveted awards. We're very excited to share with you that Popular Science has awarded PlayStation Move with their 2010 Best of What's New award in the home entertainment category, an accolade we're extremely proud of.
The editors of Popular Science selected Move as the only video game technology worthy of the honor this year, calling it the "most immersive gaming controller" on the market and "the first motion-capture game system accurate enough to attract the hardcore gamers who consider the Wii and Microsoft Kinect to be kids' stuff".

A few weeks ago, I was invited to London Studios to see first hand how the new SingStar titles, SingStar Dance and SingStar Guitar, were shaping up, and chat with some of the awesome team who bring us the ultimate party game!
During my time at London Studios on the wet and soggy Thursday afternoon, I was given the opportunity to chat and pose questions to Mike Rouse, Senior Producer of SingStar and was shown how the new versions of the game functioned by Charlie Hasdell, Principal Designer of SingStar.
This was before being given the chance to prove my worth against Charlie and some of the developers of the game!
Of course, this was all captured on video for your enjoyment, and my embarrassment
What can I say about the new versions of the game? Well I have been a fan of SingStar...
