179w ago - Earlier this weekend we saw a PlayStation Move preview from the Qore July 2010 Episode, and today CVG (linked above) has shared another PS3 hands-on PS Move video courtesy of Gamestrust via YouTube.
The video is approximately 14 minutes in length, and includes hands-on PS3 gameplay with the PlayStation Move motion controller showcasing footage from The Shoot, Sports Champions, Move Party and KungFu Rider.
To quote: "It shows off footage from The Shoot, Sports Champions (table tennis and Frisbee throwing) and our favourite, KungFu Rider, in which you roll around a city in Japan on an office chair, grinding on poles and kicking suited businessmen in the face.
It looks certain satisfy our lifelong desire to roll around a city in Japan on an office chair, grinding on poles and kicking suited businessmen in the face. All about it."
179w ago - While the release of Sony's PlayStation Move upcoming motion-sensing video game controller for the PS3 is still a few months away, PlayStationInformer (linked above) shared a preview of it in action from the Qore July 2010 episode.
To quote: "With the PlayStation Move hitting stores in just a few months, Veronica got some quality time with its creator Dr. Richard Marks for an in-depth look at how the technology works.
Dr. Marks also shows off some cool tech demos that will further illustrate how this will create new opportunities for innovative game play."
PlayStation Move is currently scheduled to be released on September 15 in Europe, September 19 in North America, and October 21, 2010 in Japan.

182w ago - Today Jacques of GamersGuidetoLife.com (linked above) has uncovered the new PlayStation Move Motion Controller chargers by Nyko for the PS3 entertainment system.
While these are not the official Sony charging stations for the PlayStation Move Controller, they come available in two versions: One holds just one PS Move controller set, while the other version simply holds two of the PS3 peripherals.
Finally, a price for the Nyko charging stations has yet to be revealed, nor has the official Sony Motion Controller Chargers.
To quote: "I bring you charging stations for Move! Specifically, two charging stations. One which holds one ball and rod remote (technical names, don't you know) and one which holds two of each.
In terms of design they're really as you'd expect. Smooth black finish with inserts for controllers, and lights to tell you they are charging.
Of course, these aren't official Sony chargers, as they are branded with Nyko, but they still look pretty sweet. No word on price yet, I'm guessing we'll find out after we know Move's official price."
183w ago - A few months back a PlayStation Move FCC listing was uncovered revealing Model CECH-ZCM1U, and today SiliconEra.com (linked above) has discovered schematics of exactly what makes Sony's PlayStation Move Controller function with the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: "This is what's inside, according to a schematic drawing from a patent filed by Sony Computer Entertainment America.
The accelerometer tracks motion. The gyroscope detects orientation. The magnetometer measures the direction and strength of nearby magnetic fields. And here's a diagram of the circuit board."

183w ago - Just under a month ago the IntensaFire PlayStation 3 Controller Mod by BGRMods was first announced, and today I have reviewed this PS3 DualShock rapid-fire modification below!
First off I would like to thank IntensaFireStore.com for providing this wonderful chip, installation was seamless and simple; if taking your controller apart is impossible for you, don't worry about it.
Instructions are included with this, no worrying about a large PDF on CD or 900 pages of nothing. Most of it is self-explanatory and anyone can figure it out (Maybe not a caveman, however )
Let's get down to business, shall we?
Again, installation is simple. Don't make a thread complaining that you can't get your controller open or you can't figure out how the chip snaps on top of the controller chip.. it's not rocket science ;]
I've demoed this mod on 3 PS3 games (I'm not your cheater here, so I worked with only PlayStation 3 demos). After I played the Battlefield 1943 demo, which had a trial period of 30 minutes, I haven't used it since.
It was rather amazing to be able to adjust the fire rate in-game as well, allowing me...
