Interesting article. They can't make me buy one though! Seriously James, how do you manage to work on NL, Movemodo, and play videogames, and have any kind of social life at the same time? You must be one hell of a multitasker.

I've made a small correction there that might help you understand! My personal archives make frightening reading to me, but you can probably tell I found myself with a lot more free time on my hand in May

Exactly the same as I do now but on a third site. This Christmas is going to be crazy but I hope it'll be fun at least, then next year when things have settled down... I'm going to work on a fourth site

@James.... well you and all of you at NL get tons of respect from myself. You guys do a great job here with Nintendo and so far are showing that Movemodo will be just as great, and Im sure the Kinect site will be as well. Covering the full spectrum of motion controlled gaming is something you guys should be proud of. Stepping out of the "cover everything, such as IGN, Gamesradar, etc" genre into the niche markets as Move and Kinect surely are at the moment is not a garuanteed success, but Im very much hoping it works out for the best for you guys as well us the readers and games.

EDIT... also for allowing us Nintendo fans have a Playstation and Microsoft related threads that thrive here and have for over a year now.

Oh and let me help you with that Heavy Rain review James.... cough.cough.10.cough.cough

I'm in two minds about Heavy Rain. I really enjoyed it - I thought the acting was great, graphically it's superb, and it's really unlike anything I've played before. But that said, it's really flawed: it's very sexist, most characters are stereotypes and walking your characters around is like steering a tank sometimes. It's to be commended in most areas, but I hold back from calling it a masterpiece or anything like that.

Oh, and thanks for the praise! I appreciate it

Heavy Rain is a breed of very few. The few others like it on colsoles really comes down to Dreamfall on XBOX and Indigo Prophecy, all of wich are kinda like Interactive Novels of sorts. Not for everybody by no means, but yes I do agree Heavy Rain as well as all of them, are in fact flawed and great at the same time.

PlayStation Move Launch Party tonight. I seriously can't wait to get my hands on it. Also hoping to get to demo The Fight. My bundle will hopefully be in tomorrow but my buddy is getting his tonight so we will be playing the heck out of it tomorrow. Ill post my impressions here of it all.

can anyone answer how the move's pointer controls work? i've been curious about it but have yet to hear what they're using in place of an IR camera. from the looks of it they may be using just the internal sensors alone, similar to how the slingshot in skyward sword is going to work. maybe one of you guys can tell me how it works out in a few days, but i don't think motion-only aiming sounds too intuitive.

@romulux.... yes, its the camera that reads the glowing orb on the controller. Its extremely accurate and has no lag at all. The controls are so intuitive its hard to get used too. After waggling in Wii Resort on Table Tennis moving into Sports Championships we laughed a good while at my buddy trying to waggle in Ping Pong and failed horribly, until he actually started swinging the controller correctly like you would if you actaully was playing, only then did he interact with the ball correctly.

Bottom line... this is NO Wii Ripoff in no way shape fashion or form. When you get your hands on it and play the gladiator, disc golf and ping pong are the games that really show off how great it really is. Archery is so accurate its almost too easy, but yet again I only got a few minutes with it. Right now Im updating my new 320gb PS3 as I traded in one of them for the new Move Bundle and Ill get into Sports Championship later tonight and tommorrow and have a much more detailed info for you guys.

@slapshot: I can't wait to hear your impressions of it. I'm considering picking up a Move controller later today since I already own the Eye camera. None of the launch games really grab me but I think that Sports Champions and Eyepet look pretty fun. I'd like to try those out one day. I'm going to pick up a copy of Heavy Rain because I'm dying to play that with the Move.

@Wolf.... well Sports Championships is a no brainer Ive put about an hour actual playtime in with it with about 20 people tonight and its great fun.

I have Eyepet and Heavy Rain as well and will pick up MAG this week also as its also getting a Move patch by the end of the month. Just dont mess with Start the Party or Kung Fu Riders as they are complete shovelware. Ill be sure and put some time in with Eyepet tomorrow and Ill post impressions, my friend already got time with it at a showing last week and said it was great.

i found some stuff that says the pointer controls are a combination of all the motion sensors together at once, so it's no one part of the remote i guess. in the end it is just like the slingshot controls in skyward sword then, where you don't even have to point at the screen. supposedly that method feels like moving a mouse in 3D space, which'll probably help win over some computer gamers.

move is definitely a better controller, but i don't think quality has a bearing on the 'rip off' argument... no matter how good it is, they are a little similar:

sony has borrowed before, to the extent that you could argue there's hardly a part of the dual shock that didn't originate from nintendo, but the point is that sony does a good job of improving on whatever they borrow and move is no exception. i welcome it because it means now nintendo will have to step up and give us something better, hopefully starting with a wiimote with motion+ built in already.

the reason i bring it up is that the image of HD fanboys (none present here thankfully) suddenly embracing remote controls after years of turning their nose up at the wii bugs me. i hope people appreciate it as being the highest evolution of a motion controller yet while still giving the credit due to nintendo for the ground work; hopefully once they see what the wii's had to offer all this time the mockery will die down a little.
