Sony Admits that It Could Have Done Better with Move

Still being worked on
When Move was released for the PS3, it offered an experience similar to the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, but ultimately with superior and more accurate technology. In an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine, however, Sony UK VP and MD Fergal Gara has admitted that it hasn't been as big a success as Sony hoped, and that improvements are needed in software for the peripheral.
When asked about whether Move had targeted the correct audience or provided enough high-quality experiences, Gara was honest and upfront.
What I’m thinking is that it’s better suited towards the casual market, certainly, but we also are pretty clear that we could have done a better job on the titles we’ve had and we’ve brought to market for the PlayStation Move. As you’ve said, great tech, probably not so great applications so far. So there’s a job for us to do on the strength of games, and having seen what’s forthcoming gives me great hope that we can do a better job with Move as we look forward. So we’re certainly not forgetting about it.
What have you thought of Move so far, and do you have hope that Sony can improve the way it's used in the future?
