Browse the Internet Using a Move Cursor in Update 3.50

Get online with the glowing ball

The PS3's Internet browser isn't bad – it works great for Movemodo for a start – but it doesn't make sense that you can't use the Move controller as an on-screen cursor for clicking links and so on.

Sony says Thanks for the Extra Coverage, Kinect

Move would be worse off without rival

Kinect or Move? Move or Kinect? The two motion rivals seem locked in an eternal struggle to generate the most column inches in the gaming and mainstream press, but PlayStation head honcho Shuhei Yoshida is grateful it has a competitor in the field, as it wouldn't have been able to generate such interest on its...

Sports Champions Grabs the Silver Medal in UK Charts

Only outsold by Halo: Reach

It probably wouldn't be unfair to say the European Move launch line-up wasn't exactly full to the brim with must-have new releases, but one title that obviously stood out from the crowd was Sports Champions, as it raced to the second slot in the UK All-Formats Charts.

Just Try to Forget the Music from this Ape Escape Fury Fury Trailer

It's impossible

First-person net 'em up Ape Escape Fury Fury is about catching monkeys with flashing lights on their heads, but that's got nothing on the musical madness in this Tokyo Game Show trailer.
