Video: Sports Champions Table Tennis on PlayStation Move

300°
200w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available a video today spotlighting Sports Champions Table Tennis on PlayStation Move for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: If you've previously played a tennis or ping pong video game, you might have an idea of what it's like to play Table Tennis in Sports Champions. You might also be wrong

We wanted to wrap up Sports Champions Week with Table Tennis, because what might seem to be a very basic game proves itself to be quite complex when you factor in the precision of PlayStation Move.

In this video, producer Jeremy Ray demonstrates how the paddle is replicated in 3 dimensions, X, Y, and Z-axis tracking, and also shows off multiplayer and how you too can fend off a robot attack with ping pong balls.





That concludes Sports Champions Week, which will be available in the PlayStation Move bundle this very weekend. If you missed them, please take a look at our Archery, Gladiator Duel, and Disc Golf videos. The final game also includes Bocce and Beach Volleyball.
 

Video: Sports Champions Disc Golf for PlayStation Move on PS3

201w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today spotlighting Sports Champions Disc Golf for PlayStation Move on PS3.

To quote: I've played disc golf once before, and the course wasn't anywhere near as nice as the one in Sports Champions.

After the rapid, manic action found in Gladiator Duel, an event like Disc Golf is a fun, relaxing way to wind down. That calmer place doesn't mean that it doesn't take full advantage of the PlayStation Move technology, however.

Producer Jeremy Ray shows us why Sports Champions presents the best "[Register or Login to view links]" experience you've ever seen in a video game.





I particularly like how you're not going through pre-determined motions - if you want to underhand toss your disc into the goal, you're free to do it (and it's a pretty good technique from 20 feet and under).

We wrap up Sports Champions week tomorrow with Table Tennis.

201w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared the second video in their Sports Champions series today, this time spotlighting Gladiator Duel on the PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller.

To quote: Sports Champions Week continues here on the Blog with the hack 'n' slash action of Gladiator Duel.

In the Move demonstrations we've given at trade shows and Move meetups, Gladiator Duel has been the event that people have gravitated to immediately.

And it's easy to see why - bashing your friends in a head to head battle with one-to-one tracking is pretty awesome. Producer Jeremy Ray walks us through the features:

More than any other Sports Champions event, Gladiator Duel is the one that's going to get that heart rate up and a bit of a sweat going. Tomorrow we'll continue Sports Champions week with the comparatively mellow Disc Golf (a personal fave of mine).

To quote: PlayStation Move is just days away from hitting store shelves, and for those of you picking it up, Sports Champions is your likely first destination. So what do you get with this game?

And how does Sports Champions show off the power and precision of PlayStation Move?

For the rest of this week, we'll be highlighting some of the half-dozen events featured in the game. Today, we get our [Register or Login to view links] on with Archery.

Any questions about archery? We'll do our best to answer them. Tomorrow: Gladiator Duel.




 

Online Pass is Now Required for EA Sports Online Gameplay

219w ago - Electronic Arts is launching their new one-time online pass registration program to enhance the sales of new EA Sports titles, while offering the pass with used video games for $10.

The move is designed to offer additional downloadable content to members that sign up with the purchase of a new game in the form of exclusive content and matchmaking tournament opportunities.

EA plans on unveiling the Pass with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, and will subsequently release the Pass for all EA sports titles.

To quote: "EA Sports boss Peter Moore spoke highly of the new direction in online subscription-based downloadable content: "This is an important inflection point in our business, because it allows us to accelerate our commitment to enhance premium online services to the entire robust EA Sports online community."

Many gamers might look at this and think that GameStop would be against the trend, but even more would be surprised to hear that GameStop is looking at this as an opportunity. "This relationship allows us to capitalize on our investments to market and sell downloadable content online, as well as through our network of stores worldwide," said GameStop president Dan DeMatteo.

While this is not a totally new practice, the information presented gives telling...
