PlayStation Move previews – more videos of Move launch titles – only a couple more weeks to go!
- Kung Fu Rider – it looks a little crazy, but it’s genuinely fun to play
- Hustle Kings – this great PSN pool game obviously wasn’t originally designed for the Move, and unfortunately it shows
- Start the Party! – this entertaining mini-game collection is FirstPlay’s favourite of the Move’s launch titles
