It's hard to believe that it's only been a year since the PlayStation Move hit store-shelves
The catalogue of supported games has been growing steadily ever since release — and continues to catch steam as the Holidays approach. In order to recognise the abundance of content, SCEA has announced two new PlayStation Move bundles for North America. For existing PlayStation 3 owners, there's a new..
Regular readers will know we have a minor obsession with tennis games
We're probably one of the few video game blogs that actually discusses tennis games on a regular basis. For that, we apologise to our non-tennis fan readers — but just give us 1,000 more words to talk about one of our dream E3 announcements: a PlayStation Move tennis game developed by Zindagi Games. For those that aren't aware,..
Sports Champions is one of the most heavily under-rated releases of 2010 in our opinion
It's not that the game scored unfavourably, it's just that it didn't manage to register on the radar of most players. Which is a deep shame, because as far as we're concerned, the sports compilation's interpretation of table-tennis is hands-down the most accurate demonstration of motion control available..
Cast your mind back to E3 2009 when Sony demoed the "PlayStation Motion Controller"
You may remember some tech demonstrations involving skeletons and specters. The PlayStation Motion Controller eventually became the PlayStation Move, and those tech demonstrations formed the basis of Sports Champions. But what of the skeletons and specters? Sony's confirmed that three new "Haunted"..
FIFA 11's jumped straight to the top of the UK sales charts this week, achieving the third biggest video game launch in UK history
The title overthrew its predecessor to take the crown, falling just short of records set by Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. Unit sales are up 21 percent over the previous title, with revenue up 36 percent. Basically it's making lots of money for EA. Sports..
Someone tell Jake Humphrey not to worry about his job; F1 is still a big deal in the UK
That's apparent as F1 2010 has scooped the number one UK sales spot. Codemasters' racing title beat out competition from both Halo: Reach and Dead Rising 2 — the latter of which debuted in the number three spot. PlayStation Move must-have Sports Champions held strong after plenty of positive buzz from..
I've spent a good chunk of my week playing table-tennis
Don't be silly, I've not risked my life sharing the Youth Club's beaten down excuse for a table-tennis table with a group of hoods — I've been playing the sport in my living room via PlayStation Move. I've always been a fan of motion controls and, in particular, motion controlled sports games. But brilliant though it was, not even Wii Sports..

Our biggest complaint with the excellent Sports Champions is that on a presentation level it's pretty flat
Let's be honest here, who is going to remember what Kenji and Giselle look like? Zindagi might have done an excellent job programming personality into the AI opponents, but their art team weren't on form designing the characters. That's fine, because Sports Champions is an enjoyable game..
Late last night, we were deliberating PlayStation Move sales
We knew we were due a weekly UK sales report from Chart-Track this morning, and we were mulling over what would be a decent showing from the PlayStation Move's first must-have title, Sports Champions. We've always expected Move's launch window to be slow. Unlike Microsoft's Kinect, we anticipate the PlayStation Move will be a slow-burn..
The PlayStation Move officially launched across Europe and the US today
We've spent our day making fools of ourselves in Start The Party and winning digital cups in Sports Champions. Needless to say, our attention's been torn today. Sure, we want to tell you about all the things that have happened in the world of PlayStation but... Move is here. Having said that, if you were lucky enough to pick up..
It's that time of the year when video games hit store shelves and, in all honesty, we're in a bit of a panic
But we're also excited. Particularly this week, because we'll finally be getting our hands on the PlayStation Move. We fell in love with the device when we checked it out earlier in the year; so we're awaiting the device's imminent retail...
If you're planning on picking up a PlayStation Move controller next week, you might want to know what gubbins you'll get on the starter kit's accompanying demo disc
Well, quite a lot actually. You'll get substantial demos of 11 games including Sports Champions, Start The Party and TV Superstars. Hit the jump for a video tour of the goods. <object id="viddler"..
Today is the day of reckoning
Just a year after the PlayStation 3 Slim's launch here in Europe, Sony's got another big day ahead of them. The PlayStation Move is out in the wild, and Sony's let some of the big publications go knee-deep with impressions. On the whole, everything's looking pretty positive for Sony's motion controller. Joystiq describe the hardware as a "resounding success,"..
Sony's confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that "there are plans" to bring DLC to the excellent Sports Champions
According to one of the game's producers, Jeremy Ray, the team will be "announcing details soon". Whether or not the DLC will stretch to new sports, we're uncertain. We'd hazard the added content will focus on adding characters, but obviously entirely new activities would be..
We thought we'd seen the end of the Sony and Subway partnership the moment we posted this story earlier in the year
We were wrong. Seems the pairing really are best buddies at the moment. Take Subway's latest promotion, the "Fiery Footlong Frenzy". There's a bunch of PlayStation-related gubbins involved, including: PS3 systems, games, 3D HDTVs, PSP systems, and exclusive access to the..
Irritating, cheap, annoying
.. cute. We couldn't resist posting this one. Good PlayStation Move promotional work PlayStation Taiwan. Just make sure you turn off the sound.</em>
Admittedly, Sports Champions has about as much charm as a limp sock
But having got hands-on time with the compilation's table tennis game, we're not sure it matters. That's because PlayStation Move works; this is not a device playing on empty promises and faked lifestyle commercials - it does what Sony have always said it will: track your movements...
That's all we want. That's all we've ever wanted. Well to be honest, that's not strictly true. A good motion controlled tennis game is truly what we've always wanted. But for now, table tennis will do. Yes, we know you can play it on the Wii, but Sports Champions looks to take those Wii Sports Resort concepts an elevate them to an even higher depth of accuracy. Sports Champions is the..
In America you can get a PlayStation Move Starter Kit (that's a Move controller, PlayStation Eye and copy of Sports Champions) for $99
99. In the UK, the same starter kit without Sports Champions is £59.99 (or £49.99 if you do a bit of shopping). In Japan though, the Starter Kit costs just $67 (5,980 yen). You get the same kit as the US version, except you get a game called Sing And Draw instead..
Here's your first glimpse at the European packaging for a bunch of PlayStation Move launch titles
The pack shots come courtesy of French site Gamekyo, who somehow managed to get hold of the job-lot. We're not too hot on the "You'll Need These" logo on the front of the boxes, but we guess it gets the job done. Perhaps the most notable point of discussion comes on the Sly Cooper Collection..
A new 30-minute PlayStation Move demo has hit the 'Net, offering new footage of both Sports Champions and Move Party
The video, which is in German, offers some footage we're yet to really see of Sports Champions, including volleyball and frisbee. Sports Champions looks particularly impressive from a technical stance, but we fear its art-style is a little too plain to make it a worthy rival to Wii..
The lucky folks at Stuff magazine have got a chance to go hands-on with Sony's new Playstation Move motion controller, a device they describe as "pleasingly accurate"
The British mag checked out the likes Table Tennis, Eye Pet, SOCOM 4 and Move Party - giving a glowing preview of all the content they played. Playstation Move's due later this year. Expect to see lots more of it at E3.
Sony's Worldwide Studios VP Scott Rohde has spoken out to IndustryGamers regarding the difference between the Playstation Move and the Nintendo Wii Remote
Both devices are thematically similar, where the player gestures with a controller and has their actions represented on the screen. But Rohde reckons that's where the similarities end, using Sports Champions Table Tennis game as a point of..
During their GDC keynote last night, Sony showed off a sports game collection for the Playstation Move with some similarities to Nintendo's own Wii Sports Resort
The game, Sports Champions, features archery, table-tennis and a gladiator-esque game (massive potential for future third-person action adventure titles there). Check the screens after the jump. The Playstation Move has unparalleled,..
Sony held a keynote in San Francisco as part of GDC tonight
Lots of things were announced including Sony's new motion control solution, the Playstation Move. Here's a full recap of tonight's events: Playstation Motion Controller unveiled. Will appeal to the hardcore and casual gamers. The controller will be officially named the Playstation...
