140w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a fresh PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller tech demo video today.
To quote: While some of you already have the new PlayStation Move motion controller in your hands and others are just hours away, it seems a good time to post this tech demo from Move's inventor, Dr Richard Marks.
I particularly like the sculpting part and I really hope this makes it's way into a game one day as a weapon customisation tool.
I hope you're enjoying Move so far, those of you that have your hands on it.
In case you missed it, here's a video interview I shot with Richard when he visited London a couple of months ago.
141w ago - Sony Senior Vice President Peter Dille of Marketing & PlayStation Network has revealed today alongside some fresh videos that PlayStation Move will be hitting homes in North America soon.
To quote: This is a particularly special week for the PlayStation brand. Today, we're celebrating the 15th anniversary of PlayStation in North America.
As someone who was here at SCEA on 9/9/95, I can honestly say that the same enthusiasm and commitment to delivering great entertainment still drives the brand forward.
Which brings me to why this next week will also be special - the launch of one of the most exciting new products of the year: PlayStation Move.
We've been gearing up for the big launch of PlayStation Move in stores across North America next week and over the course of the next few months you'll be hearing quite a bit about PlayStation Move on your TVs, online, at your favorite PlayStation retailer, at your local mall and on some of your favorite products.
Beginning next week "PlayStation Move Headquarters" stores will come to San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and a larger scale mall tour will debut in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, DC and Chicago.
144w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced today that a PlayStation Move hands-on session will be taking place in Washington DC next week for fans.
To quote: Next Tuesday, we'll be bringing PlayStation Move out to the nation's capital to show to some local and national media outlets. But why should they have all the fun?
We cordially invite you, the PlayStation community in the Washington DC area, to go hands-on with PlayStation Move a month before it starts showing up in stores.
We're going to outfit Current Sushi & Lounge in Dupont Circle with final or near-final versions of Sports Champions, Kung Fu Rider, echochrome ii, Start the Party!, Tumble, and some brand new tech demos showing what the future of motion gaming may look like.
Attendance is, of course, free, and we'll pick up the tab on hors d'oeuvres and drinks (for those 21 and up). And all attendees will score the much-in-demand PlayStation Move tee.
Here's what you need to know; be sure to read and then RSVP:
145w 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.
145w ago - Earlier today we saw a new PlayStation Move Demo video in the light, but GamesOnSmash.com (linked above) kicked it up a notch and confirmed that Sony's PlayStation Move PS3 Motion Controller does indeed work just as well in the dark.
