Epic fail again!!! Sony is just lame. All they can do is copy from another company.
Sorry but every Sony product is just a waste of money.
My bro owned a Sony TV with black trinity technology. It turned black and white,
but channel number stayed green. He sent it in for repair. It was working fine for a month,
then the same problem happened again.

Don't buy Sony products, they suck.
I will never ever buy a Sony product. This ain't no fanboy talk, it is based on bad experience.

This dild....I mean "Sony Move" is such a blatant Wii rip-off that it litterally makes me cringe. I mean come on, if you're gonna copy the company who is clearly better than you in every regard at LEAST try and hide it! The first image in that article litterally looks like Sony photoshopped out the Wiimote and Nunchuck and put in the Move and sub controller. I'm actually glad they're doing this though because it shows how seriously desperate Sony has gotten and that they are very much at the end of their rope. I predict that this rip-off will fail miserably and drag the already suckish PS3 down even further. I hate both Sony and Microsoft but I can at the very least say that Microsoft if doing something different! Natal will also fail but atleast Microsoft won't come off looking like total copy cats.

My backloggery:


Play nice folks. The tech looks very impressive -- although I'll agree they could have taken measures to ensure there isn't this huge "Wii too" backlash.

EDIT: Let's also not forget that Sony's EyeToy, SingStar and Buzz! franchises spurned this "casual gaming" movement in the first-place.

Sony hardcore exclusionists, get ready for party games influx ;-P

"They say video games are bad for you? That's what they said about rock n' roll."


What?! What kind of excuse is this i mean Sony has been Ripping Nintendo off for Years i mean since 1993 all they did was Copy NINTENDO, everything i mean Everything from Controller, to Market Logo, Analog Stick, Handheld System, heck even the Name PlayStation was stolen from Nintendo how do i know this? well:

Everyone who thinks this is an "Original Idea" should have their brain check i mean at least SEGA and Microsoft yes they where / still competitors to, but at least they actually invented instead of copying: SEGA invent Grip things on the Controller (example look at your Gamecube Controller you just put your hands and you will see what i mean) and Online Feature for Console, Microsoft made Xbox live Marketplace aka multi-use of an online server and Natal (Yes i know the Eyetoy exist and even that's copy aka Game Boy Camera) but the deference here is that Natal is a "Motion Sensing Camera" specially design for the Human / Object Control. I'm surprised Sony can even get away with this seriously. Nintendo should file a lawsuit to not just Move but to everything that Sony Computer Entertainment has copied. Iff Apple can sued Motorola, Nintendo can and will win a lawsuit if they filed it against Sony. 500 billion dollars sounds fair enough for damages.

I like an old-fashioned controller, with some buttons, a D-pad, and a couple of control sticks. No innovation, please.

Continuing from the other thread that was redirected here, in regards to if Ninty can sue Sony ...
I am an attorney and although my practice is not in Intellectual Property, the field was one of my main interests during law school and i had originally considered entering the field (one of our professors is/was pretty well-known in IP atty circles). But anyways, i just mention all that by way of context ...

Chances are more than likely that Ninty would not be successful in any infringement suit (they can always bring an action, but it just may not be sustainable and potentially ill-advised if not fully justified). Despite the superficial similarlities, it seems that the tech (which is really what matters since the physical asthetics are different enough) is wholly different than what Ninty uses. And Sony aren't complete idiots (business-wise); they know how The Move will immediately be percieved as a Wiimote clone and i can't believe they would be so stupid as to produce something that in any way even steps on the toes of any Ninty patents or protected IPs.

It is of course possible -- if Sony was stupid enough to allow production (and public unveiling) of something that bit off the Ninty tech, they'd potentially be screwed.

The globe on top looks idiotic, but I expect PS3 owners will queue around the block to drop £60 on this.

Or about $100 since it requires the camera and a compatible game.


Sticking by what I said in the other thread:

Because nobody responded to it and I'm a massive attention seeker ;-;

There really needs to be a permanent fix for this where you don't have to constantly be recalibrating the device.

in all fairness we've still only seen a few motion+ games, and there's room for improvement even with the current hardware. red steel 2's developers claimed that they found a way around the recalibrating through programming, but we'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out if they're telling the truth. you can at least bet zelda will have much better controls than WSR.

i don't know how the sony remote compares to nintendo's, but i do know that sony deserves credit for being good at ripping things off; they usually do manage to top the devices they copy. the dual shock took the n64's rumble and analog control while losing its need for batteries and plugging/unplugging different packs to save, for instance. their strategy seems to be to let someone else do the hard work while you lie in wait, then take their finished product and build on it.

That glowing orb looks like it would bug the piss out of me, pardon the language.

i'm absolutely sure it'll be annoying; even the blue LED on the wii remote is too bright for me. and, if you're playing in front of a window the famously stupid looking wiimote thrashing will be topped when you add a rainbow strobe light into the equation.

Nintendo has copied just as many ideas over the years as anyone else. Hell they're constantly being sued, just like the others. While this "wand" is obviously a clone of the Wii Remote, nothing wrong with bringing something new to your console as long as you bring some original ideas along the way.

Plain old gamer :)


And you can use it as a bed lamp too.

hey come on, if I can't be a fanboy here, where can I be? ;D
