E3 2010: Sony Talks PlayStation Move, Debuts New Footage
After telling us the PlayStation 3 has hit 35 million consoles sold worldwide, and reminding us that 3,400 movies and 20,000 TV episodes exist on the PlayStation Network, Sony moved into the PlayStation Move presentation.
Sony boss Peter Dille spoke about the new motion-sensing technology; this innovative mechanic unveiled at GDC is really primed to make big strides for the industry. It's not about just being entertained or "surrounded," it's about literally becoming part of the game. And they say the difference between Move and other motion-sensing systems lies in the overall realism: it has the ability to replicate most any motion with pinpoint accuracy and furthermore, the potential is almost limitless. In addition to creating plenty of family-oriented games but at the same time, they also intend to create new experiences designed to cater to the hardcore gamer. They say Move is special, with the combination of the PlayStation Eye and unique wand controller, which makes the entire interactive adventure "both challenging and rewarding." During the show, they also went and showed off some new Move projects, many of which look awfully impressive. We'll be updating with relevant videos for all our Sony E3 press conference coverage as soon as the footage becomes available, so stay tuned.
Move definitely appears to be a step in the right direction concerning new technologies, and we're seeing plenty of new stuff in terms of capability. Really, we're sitting here saying, "damn, that's pretty effing cool.
