Heroes On The Move Renamed

All right, well, maybe they wanted to get the name of the actual hardware in the title.

One of the more interesting titles announced this year is the one that features Ratchet, Jak, and Sly Cooper; the Sony heroes come together in an all-new action/adventure title designed for the PlayStation Move. Initially, it was announced as "Heroes on the Move," but now, Nihilistic Software's Robert Huebner has announced a name change: the game will now be entitled, PlayStation Move Heroes. The news came at an event during this weekend's New York Comic-Con and while the title certainly isn't as...poetic, it might be a logical alteration. After all, it could really help to "move" Move and with the actual hardware name in the title, that's probably a good thing. Not everyone knows all the games designed for Move, right?  We don't all visit PSXE on a routine basis.

But what better names might they have chosen? Any brilliant ideas?

Not really interested in this game but I'll probably get it anyways since my Move library consists of only Heavy Rain, Sports Champions and soon to be MAG.

EDIT: I think i like Heros on the Move better.

It should have just been "Playstation heroes."

Doesn't need to MOVE in it. Adding the "move" in it just makes it seem like a casual gamer's game.

Ok, how 'bout "Playsation Heroes (MOVE)"
That'ts better imo

HMMMMM....Playstation Move Heroes, I see where you're point with the name change Ben, but honestly Heroes on the move just seems alot more fun, plus it has a nice ring to it.

I agree with Jawknee, Heros on the Move is a better title, it includes Move and makes more sense.

It's more clever than Playstation Move Heros. PMH just sounds like a "go to." Like they couldn't think of anything better...but they did. ha

I have to say that I liked Heroes on the Move better. It sounds slightly less generic than PlayStation Move Heroes. I have no idea how to make it sound better. Maybe Icons Together or Super PlayStation Brawl or something.
Anyways I can't wait to play all the greatest icons together, maybe... if it doesn't turn out bad.

As already said above, "Heroes on the Move" should have stayed.

All they had to do was to make the word "MOVE" twice as big as the rest of the title, and also change the "Move" coloring to something that stands out & grabs your focus that it's not only the title of the game, but that it's also tells you that it's a Move game too.

Yes! I love this idea and think it should of been obvious to do so, and that this game requires MOVE in the first place.

The name change is smart. There are tons of people who don't read the packaging and would have been hugely disappointed when they realized Heroes on the Move only works with a hundred dollar add-on.

Imagine a person looking for a 4 player co-op game, and it says so in the back, then only to find out at home that he/she will need at least 4 sticks ($200) and possibly 2-4 navigators ($120).

Surely, they have the option of DS3 play, right?

That's a pretty dull name change. But I can't think of anything catchy at the moment.

...and actually "we" do visit PSX on a routine basis. It's "they" who don't!

Oh darn... yeah. Whatever the case regarding the original, concept name, the new name is most definitely less catchy.

Nothing much to say here since I agree with everyone and everything that's said so far.

___PLAYSTATION MOVE HEROES___
Heroes Moving to the Station of Play.

The Heroes are on the Move in this joviantly moving tale of Heroes vs. Villains within the constantly Moving Playstation universe.

Find out why Jak & Clank have a bitter rivalry of grenades & serenades & Sly Cooper remains unpopular. Though not for long, they realise there is more within the depths of the Station's memories, a dark past consisting of a marsupial omnivore wearing cropped attire & a mythical creature who happens to be purple.

Find out why these former Heroes slowly transformed into artifacts of lame gaming & prevent them from spreading the infection inside Station universe into a froom infested, land of froom. MOVE YOUR WAY INTO BATTLE. I'm so moved.

---------------------------

Includes PS Home function ~ Quick! Move your Home to the Heroes HQ! ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US. MY LITTLE SUNFLOWERS.

1 - 4 players.

Ironically my brother just reminded me about "Heroes on the Move" the other day. At first, hearing about all the characters that would be in it made it a buy. Then I saw the trailer to it and it just looked tacky and empty.

Now they go and change the name to something that sounds so embarrassing. Seriously, it sounds like a name an elementary kid would come up with and say "Yeah!!!!" to.

"Hi, we're the Playstation Move Heroes" - No thanks.

Something more comical would have been better suited.

"The Greatest Side Kicks in the World!!!" featuring "The Playstation Move".

How does Playstation expect to win over a dedicated following when they don't have something concrete like Nintendo or Sega did? Nintendo = Mario and everything with his name, or similar to it was a "Smash" hit. Sega = Sonic and that one is a no brainer.

Playstation = Side kicks which quite honestly = no namers which = no dedicated following.

"Crash Bandicoot to the Rescue!" a Playstation Move exclusive.

It's that easy people. Apparently Sony doesn't have anyone with bright ideas on their payroll.

Wow, that is a pretty bad "move".
"Heroes on the Move" was catchy and neat.
Now it's just.. A game with a very, very, generic and unimaginative title.
Shame.
