    Moving in a new direction

    Subtract the upcoming God of War: Ascension and The Last of Us from the equation, and 2012 is looking like PS3’s most mainstream year yet.

    Arro' there

    PlayStation Move is set to get another taste of Disney when Disney Pixar's Brave comes to the motion controller this summer.

  • News Puddle Makes a Splash on PSN in November

    Sorry about that

    Konami's liquid PSN puzzler Puddle looks like an interesting use of PlayStation Move, and at least as interesting as the rather-similar-actually Fluidity on WiiWare. The inevitable result of Move's motion controls and a game about fluids, you tilt the controller to funnel the liquids through a series of mazes, avoiding fire,...

  • News Wipeout is Coming to PlayStation Move

    No, not the good one, sorry

    We felt the same: when we read that Wipeout 2 is coming to PlayStation Move, we started imagining controlling futuristic racers with motion controllers. Then we read further down the announcement and saw it's a version of popular TV show Wipeout. Oh well. The holiday season game will use the Move controller to help guide...

  • News This Champion Jockey Video is Too Good for Words

    Sit back and enjoy

    Champion Jockey will make use of PlayStation Move when it launches next month, but how? Let this video answer all your questions. Interestingly the video shows two Move controllers are used, one of the few games to do so, though we'd hope a single controller option is in there too. Even if it's not, this guy sells the double...

  • News PQube Announces "Most Realistic Move Dancing Game"

    No, it's not Let's Dance with Mel B 2

    Some PlayStation Move dancing games are OK. Some, like Let's Dance with Mel B, are not OK. Here's hoping that PQube's new announcement Dance! It's Your Stage is better than that, at least. The publisher claims its new dancing game is the "most realistic and detailed Playstation 3 Move Dance game ever relea

  • News 2K Promising Better Move Controls for NBA 2K12

    Shoots a three-pointer

    We loved NBA 2K11 on PlayStation 3, but the Move controls left a little to be desired: no Navigation support and some shaky shot recognition took away some of the game's shine. Now 2K Sports is preparing to unleash NBA 2K12 and it's promising overhauled controls. For one thing, the game now features pointer support, allowing...

  • News New Champion Jockey Screens Shake Their Jockey Maker

    Tutorial too

    We've been expecting you

  • News Notch Teases Minecraft PS3 With PlayStation Move Support

    A wolf in sheep’s clothing?

    The surprise announcement at this year's E3 that the massively successful game Minecraft is coming to Kinect instantly got us thinking; wouldn’t PlayStation Move be a perfect fit too?
