Sony launch PlayStation Move website
Sony has launched a nifty new website to promote PlayStation Move, their upcoming motion control device – and Wii Remote beater. The promotional site contains the latest Move related news, a list of launch games, and developer diaries. Details explaining Move and the equipment necessary to power it (i.e PlayStation Eye) can also be found.
The site is nicely laid out and clear, and it’s good to have all the developer diaries in one place. They are worth a watch if you haven’t done so already.
The website, however, isn’t just a useful resource for those interested in learning more about the controller, the wording used on the site can also give us a clearer picture of how Sony plan to push their device. Move is described as “the most immersive gaming experience possible” that has your “every movement mimicked on-screen in breathtaking Blu-ray powered HD.” Here you see Sony taking the USP of the Wii Remote (a more “immersive gaming experience”) and applying to to Move, but to differntiate the two devices they have used the Blu-ray trump card. It goes without saying that the PS3 walks all over the Wii when it comes to graphical superiority.
Move will “excite every gamer”; it will bring “core gaming to a new level” and “bring your whole family in on the adventure.” Diversity is the key here: Sony don’t want to give the impression that they favour ‘casual’ gamers over their loyal ‘hardcore’ fans, but they do want these ‘casual’ users on board because there are many of them.
There are nine games confirmed as being compatible with Move listed on the site, but more will certainly be available in and around the launch date. We expect to see more games confirmed at E3, and maybe even a specific release date. We expect Move to be released around the holiday season. Will it be on your Christmas wishlist?
