Last year was a pretty full year of PlayStation Move games — we make it 80 Move-compatible games were released in 2011 — but we're sure 2012 is going to be even bigger.
Here we've picked just five upcoming PlayStation Move games we think you'll want to watch out for in 2012.
Publisher: Sony. Developer: The Workshop. Release date: Spring 2012.
Sorcery had a great showing at E3 back in 2010 but totally dropped off the radar until early December 2011, when Sony removed the game's invisibility cloak and showed off its new graphical style. It was already one of our most anticipated titles, but the new Sorcery trailer cemented its position in the top 5.
Publisher: 2K. Developer: Irrational Games. Release date: early 2012.
A new BioShock is good enough for any list, and with Ken Levine excited about PlayStation Move in BioShock Infinite we have every reason to believe this could be one of 2012's best Move games.
Publisher: Tecmo Koei. Developer: Team NINJA. Release date: March 2012.
The inclusion of Move in Tecmo's hardest of hardcore franchises is reason for mixed emotions, but truth be told we can't wait to get closer to Ryu Hayabusa with the first motion controls in the Ninja Gaiden series. Tecmo promises players will "know how it feels to cut someone down" — what could be better?
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment. Developer: CCP. Release date: 2012.
CCP's innovative online shooter is set in the world of massive MMO EVE Online and promises to "change the online shooter forever" with a microtransaction-led service. The concept of a shooter set in a persistent online world could be a real breath of fresh air in a deathmatch-oriented genre.
Publisher: Paramount Digital. Developer: Digital Extremes. Release date: 2012.
A third-person co-operative shooter with a touch of Mass Effect, this game is set between J. J. Abrams' Star Trek movie and the upcoming sequel. It'll also come with a special Phaser-themed Move controller, which is pretty much the best news ever.
