175w 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.

176w ago - Over the weekend we caught a glimpse of the first PlayStation Move Review featuring Table Tennis and Tiger Woods, and today another PlayStation Move PS3 Motion Controller video has surfaced spotlighting footage from The Shoot.
To quote, roughly translated: "A new video has surfaced that shows in almost ten minutes of new game scenes on upcoming PlayStation Move games.
Among other things, this shows video game scenes in front of The Shoot. The game will be published on September 15, 2010 in the starter set of PlayStation Move as a demo version.
With PlayStation Move The Shoot offers plenty of destruction on the sets of numerous action films.
The more you break shot, the easier it is to impress the virtual director... as scenes are five different venues, including a setting in the Wild West."
176w ago - Last week we saw images of Sony's PlayStation Move PS3 Motion Controller dissected, and this weekend NeoGAF (linked above) user AlexMogil has shared a video review of PS Move House Party he recently won.
Here are his thoughts on PlayStation Move thus far, to quote:
"Overall the device is nice, a little heavier than what I would have expected. As I mentioned in another thread I had to stand for every game but it isn't because of the technology, it's more because the games were designed that way.
For example, Sports Champions' table tennis allows you to move in all directions to play the ball and is surprisingly effective. I will try and be more detailed about it in the description of the titles.
Controlling the PS3 interface with the Move controller is really frustrating. Hold in the trigger and shake the stick to move in all directions... but it is waaaay too sensitive. I found myself giving up and reaching for the DS3. The web browser also does not create a virtual mouse which I thought would have been a nice touch.
The input lag is noticeable with everything. Not so much that it is make or break, but it is noticeable. It's a little like playing online...
