News: The Fight's Transparency Patch is Out Now

The Fight's Transparency Patch is Out Now

See through it all

The Fight: Lights Out is very much an acquired taste, with many reviewers criticising the lack of transparent fighters to make landing your punches easier, and now developer Coldwood Interactive has released a free patch making a few tweaks to the title. The biggest of these is the ability to turn your pugilist see-through, which...

News: Sony Could Update Move to be More Accurate, But Probably Won't

Sony Could Update Move to be More Accurate, But Probably Won't

Would be as simple as a firmware patch

Move's technology is super-accurate, but according to Sony engineer Anton Mikhailov most studios aren't yet using the controller to its full potential, something we'd expect after just three months on sale. When they do maximise the controller's precision, they may find Sony moving the goalposts, as Mikhailov...

Korean Move Cosplay is the Way to the Country's Heart

Costumes out in the wild

We've seen plenty of Move costumes already – check out Norway's Move Men and Paris's fashion take for just two examples – and now it's the turn of Korean streets, with predictably odd results. Whilst the suits seemed to go down well with most punters, one plucky young chap took a swing at the controller, clearly confused...

Sony Europe Reminds You of the Great Move Games Out Already

And some other treats on the way

Sony's Move line-up is growing on a weekly basis, with no fewer than 39 titles now available for the motion controller, so the company naturally wants to crow about the games by putting out a press release. We'll let Sony speak for itself, but as always remember you can get full reviews of these titles and many, many...

Can You Beat this Sports Champions Disc Golf Record?

Tall order

Sony's fond of its by the numbers diagrams offering statistical fascination to anyone with a numerical interest, and now it's come up with a sheet dedicated to Move's most popular launch title, Sports Champions. Full of interesting statistics – did you know over 155 million arrows have been fired, of which 1.1 million have split? –...

These Awesome Nikes are Our New Favourite Move Accessory

Ten on the beau foot scale

Move's a lovely item to hold in your hands for sure, but if you wanted to show your love for the controller on your feet you've been all out of luck – until now. Sony and Nike have combined to create two limited edition pairs of sneakers to honour the launch of PlayStation Move and the upcoming arrival of Killzone 3. The...

PlayStation Move Wins Popsci's "Best of What's New" Award

Nabs "most immersive game controller" gong

We know Move works great, you know Move works great, and now Sony's controller has been honoured with an award in Popular Science magazine's "Best of What's New 2010" issue. Honoured in the always hotly-contested Home Entertainment category, Move was called the "most immersive game...

Exclusive Day One DLC for PDC on PS3

More players, modes and more

PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour isn't the first sports game from O-Games to make use of PlayStation Move – its previous release was the very playable John Daly's ProStroke Golf, and now the publisher is lined up at the oche with a new title on Friday. PS3 owners who pick the game up on launch day will be greeted...

TRON: Evolution's Move Controls are Light Cycle Only

Short but sweet

TRON: Evolution is due to de-rez Europe on Friday, and now we've had our first look at the Move controls we can confirm they're a bit disappointing. Considering the game's heavy combat focus and use of a throwing disc, you would have thought Move could have been used in any one of a number of interesting ways, but as it happens the...

Talking Point: Why Are Accessories So Important Anyway?

Why Are Accessories So Important Anyway?

What's the big deal?

We've reported on Move as an important factor in growing the accessory sector at retail, but with hardware and software figures falling year-on-year why is the success of plastic add-ons so important? Accessories Make Money: For retailers, accessories are key: profits made from add-ons far outweighs the margin on a new game or...

This is What Move's and Kinect's Children Would Look Like

If manufactured very, very cheaply

When the Wii was released we saw countless cheap knock-offs flood the market – remember the Vii? – and now it looks like Move is about to receive its own sincerest form of flattery in the form of the "i-dong". (Really, we're not making these names up.) Displayed at a Chinese technology event, the...

Check Out Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves Next Month

A taster of LittleBigPlanet's Move mode

Here's something we didn't see coming: Sackboy is about to get his own PSN-exclusive title, called Sackboy's Prehistoric Moves, and it's only playable with Move. A co-operative-only experience, the game needs one player with a Move controller and another with a DualShock 3, as players must team up to overcome...

Snakebyte Announces the First Third-Party Move Controllers

And they don't look bad

German manufacturer Snakebyte has emerged as the first manufacturer to offer its own line of PlayStation Move controllers, starting in January 2011. Recent PS3 firmware updates have rendered some third-party controllers out of action, but Snakebyte has a cunning plan, equipping its controllers with the ability to receive...

Navigation Support is Not Coming to NBA 2K11 After All

Will be in 2K12 though

If you've been playing the superb NBA 2K11 with PlayStation Move, you might have been disappointed that the Navigation sub-controller is unsupported, leaving you with a Move in one hand and DualShock 3 in the other. Whilst we presumed Navigation support would be introduced later in the game's cycle, 2K Sports' Community...
