Move Receives Popular Science And CES Innovations Awards
The precision of PlayStation Move is impressive and it's even more impressive when those outside the industry take notice.
As revealed at the PlayStation Blog, Sony's new motion-sensing technology has earned Popular Science's 2010 Best of What's New Award in the home entertainment category. The editors of the esteemed publication selected Move as the only video game tech worthy of mention this year, calling it "the most immersive gaming controller on the market" and "the first motion-capture game system accurate enough to attract the hardcore gamers who consider the Wii and Microsoft Kinect to be kids' stuff." The comparison to the Wii and Kinect is bound to incite a few arguments but, well...there it is.
And that's not where the accolades end, either. Move was named a CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering award winner in the electronic gaming hardware category, and it has also received the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval in the video game category. Obviously, this helps Sony's cause when they say Move isn't designed for one particular group; it can appeal to both the hardcore and the casual; the young and the old. And with compatible games ranging from SingStar Dance to The Fight: Lights Out to Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition to LittleBigPlanet 2 to Killzone 3, that variety is definitely assured.
If you haven't given Move a try yet, we urge you to pick up a wand somewhere and get "moving."
