146w 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...
147w ago - Sony's PlayStation Move PS3 Motion Controller model CECH-ZCM1U specifications were first uncovered via FCC listing, and today Examiner.com has shared some pictures of it dissected for those who are curious!
The images appear to have surfaced from Jamtex of AssemblerGames.com (linked above), and show Sony's PlayStation Move Motion Controller being opened revealing the chip set, the rumble pack and the internal battery.
To quote from Examiner.com: "Sony is planning to launch their motion-based controller, PlayStation Move, in just over a month when it officially hits retail shelves during the start of September.
With the release coming up so soon, it's expected that developers, publishers, and other industry folk will find the controller in their possession relatively soon, if not already."

148w ago - For those who'd like to see how the development of Sony's PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller has progressed since E3 2010, today DualShockers (linked above) have shared a fresh tech demo from SCEA's recent NYC media event.
To quote: "Yesterday we were fortunate enough to hang out with our buddy Anton Mikailov from SCEA at Sony's Holiday media preview event in NYC.
We caught up with Anton and the PS Move a while back, and although he had some cool stuff to show us last time around, this time I was absolutely floored.
Anton showcased some never before seen PS Move tech demos; the same demos that are being shown to 3rd party developers and publishers in order to showcase what the PS Move is all about.
The first demo in the clip, is one you may have seen but just wait until you see the "chameleon" and "Rts" demos. Just think about all of the potential. Amazing is the only way to describe it."

150w 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."
150w 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.

Dr. Marks also shows off some cool tech demos that will further illustrate how this will create new opportunities for innovative game play."
