News PS Move Poised to Persist into PS5 Generation
If you went back to 2010 and told us that the PlayStation Move would not only be relevant ten years later but actually sought after, we’d have spat in your Vanilla Coca-Cola. Sony’s illuminating wands were seen as the losers of the motion control war, beaten out by the vastly more popular Nintendo Wii and Xbox Kinect. But while those...
News Where Can You Buy PlayStation Move Controllers for PSVR?
Sony's motion wands are rarer than stardust
Sony’s illuminating PlayStation Move motion controllers are a non-essential part of the PlayStation VR experience, but if you want to get the most out of the virtual reality headset, then you’re going to need to pick up a pair. Some of the peripheral’s best games, like Beat Saber and SUPERHOT VR,...
News The Inpatient's Controls Explained with DualShock 4 and PS Move
Which control scheme works best?
Like most PlayStation VR games, The Inpatient’s control scheme is a point of interest because it can be played with either the DualShock 4 or a pair of PlayStation Move wands. But what’s the best option? And how does it work? Things are fairly straightforward with the DualShock 4. You can move forward and...
News Sony Increasing Move Manufacturing to Meet PlayStation VR Demand
It’s a strange world sometimes. It felt like Microsoft’s Kinect won the not-so memorable battle of the motion controllers, but as Xbox discontinues its clunky camera, the PlayStation Move is still trucking along. Originally released for the PlayStation 3 in 2010, the illuminating wands have found a new lease of life as part of...

In addition to tweaking the PlayStation VR headset, Sony’s also announced a host of revisions for the PlayStation Move motion controllers.

News PlayStation Move Is About to Make a Big Comeback
And not just in Pog form
Who would have thought, when the Kinect was tearing up the charts and the PlayStation Move seemed like a lousy waggle copy-cat, that it'd be Sony's motion controller that would have a longer lifespan? Only today, this author played a handful of titles for preview with the illuminating wand – it's definitely on the cusp of...
News Sony Changes Stance on PlayStation VR Controller Support
Sony's still very much prone to bloopers as well, as it mucked up its messaging on PlayStation VR controller support this week. Those of you with sharp memories may recall the statement that it sent to Eurogamer.net, stressing that all virtual reality games will support the DualShock 4. Apparently that's not quite the case – it
News Strike! The PS4 Gets Its Bowling Game At Last
Don't be a turkey
The software variety on the PlayStation 4 is frankly outrageous, but we've been waiting patiently for a new High Velocity Bowling or something similar. There's good news coming out of Corecell Technology, then, as it's announced that Crazy Strike Bowling EX is in development for the new-gen system. Some of you will remember a...
News There Was Almost a Saints Row Brawler for PlayStation Move
Enter the dominatrix
In many ways, the PlayStation Move seems like a perfect controller for the Saints Row series – after all, the ill-fated motion wand already resembles a great big vibrating... Seriously, though, Unseen64.net has unearthed a bunch of information on Saints Row: The Cooler,
Rumour 14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3
PS Move compatibility also on the cards
A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to...

Rumour Is Teen Horror Until Dawn About to Strip Down on PS4?
Sony revives PlayStation Move fear fest
Horror games may be dime a dozen right now, but Supermassive Games’ ex-PlayStation 3 exclusive Until Dawn never sounded like your average scare-‘em-up. Taking inspiration from teen movies, the title promised a somewhat frisky affair, where you’d need to use the PlayStation Move controller to remove...
Review Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PlayStation 4)
Nobody suspects a thing
Loving father. Caring husband. Secret octopus. That’s the tagline to Octodad: Dadliest Catch, the sequel to Young Horses’ surprise 2010 splash hit Octodad. And it sums up the game quite succinctly. You take control of an undercover cephalopod living in the human world. You have to make sure that your family and those...
News This Patent for a New PS Move Controller Is Giving Us a Headache
LEGO meets motion control?
There's nothing quite like a totally insane PlayStation Move patent to get your blood pumping, and today we've unearthed a real doozy. The trademark, filed in September 2013, describes a new style of augmented reality controller made up of various individual blocks that you can rearrange to construct any shape that you...
News Until Dawn Staying Zipped Up Until the New Year
Keeping the chill out
Supermassive Games’ frustratingly frigid PlayStation 3 exclusive Until Dawn is set to keep covered up until the New Year, studio gaffer Pete Samuels has announced.

Rumour Sony Working on Touch Powered PS Move for PS4?

News Supermassive Games Keeping PS Move Title Until Dawn Alive
Not dead yet
Do you remember Until Dawn? The intriguing PlayStation Move teen horror title was announced at GamesCom a couple of years back, but has remained as tightly concealed as a cheerleader’s dressing room in the months since. That doesn’t mean that the release has been cancelled, though – in fact, according to managing director Pete...
Review Skydive: Proximity Flight (PlayStation 3)
Don't try this at home
What happened to extreme sports games? They were more popular than Mountain Dew towards the end of the PSone era, but the genre seemed to fizzle out faster than a ska band’s fanbase. Overexposure certainly contributed to Kelly Slater and crew’s sudden crash in popularity, but with only a half-hearted Tony Hawk to compete...
Video Giggle Through Eight Minutes of Octodad: Dadliest Catch on PS4

Review Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD (PlayStation 3)
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD harkens back to a time when games were simple and focused.

You play as a nameless hunter,...

News Octodad: Dadliest Catch Reels in PlayStation Move Support
Flop 'til you drop
Never one to miss out on an opportunity to announce tons and tons of stuff, Sony has made an assault on PAX Prime 2013 – just over a week after revealing over 50 games in Germany. Kicking off the announcements with a very floppy limb is the news that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will support PlayStation Move controls on the...

Review Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (PlayStation 3)
Fairway to heaven
You’d need a heart more barren than a bothersome bunker to dislike Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (or Everybody’s Golf, as it’s known in Europe). Originally putted onto the PlayStation Vita, this PlayStation 3 port of the sugary sporting sim is every bit as sweet as its portable predecessor. Boasting a bevy of colourful...
First Impressions An Audience with Puppeteer, the PS3 Panto Deserving of a Standing Ovation
Games like Puppeteer don’t deserve to be sitting out in the wings. You’re more likely to find Japan Studio’s side-scroller nursing a cold cup of coffee and pushing about props than strutting its stuff on centre stage. In an industry increasingly obsessed with leading lights like Call of Duty and Battlefield, there’s becoming...

Feature How a Jaded Child Set the Stage for PS3 Exclusive Puppeteer
Children are honest souls, augmented with an innocence that evaporates with the steady infiltration of adulthood. It was a sharp bite of sincerity from the son of creative director Gavin Moore that gave birth to Puppeteer, a twisted platformer with a co-operative focus from Sony’s very own Japan Studio, the home of hits such as Ape...
First Impressions Turning the Pages of Wonderbook: Book of Potions
Brewing up a storm
Wonderbook may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for families, and those of an inquisitive nature, it offers a totally new way to play games. The only problem, up until recently, was that there was only one title that used the novel peripheral, Wonderbook: Book of Spells. Fortunately, last month saw the release of
E3 2013 Wonderbook: Walking with Dinosaurs Roars onto PS3

E3 2013 Sony Brews Wonderbook: Book of Potions for PlayStation 3
Pass the Polyjuice

Talking Point Will the PlayStation Move Really Have a Place on the PS4?
Contrary to what Sony initially promised, the PlayStation Move didn’t really change anything at all. You’ll struggle to find a bigger fan of the two Sports Champions games than this particular author, but the motion device seems to have fizzled out swifter than a budget sparkler on a stormy Bonfire Night. Despite this,
Rumour Has Until Dawn Severed Its PlayStation Move Requirement?
Motion controlled adventure may have added DualShock 3 support
Until Dawn, the fascinating teen horror slasher from Supermassive Games, may not need a PlayStation Move motion controller after all. As spotted by the ferocious folks over at Bloody Disgusting, the title’s box art merely states that the game is ‘compatible’ with Sony’s...

News Quantic Dream: We Don't Think PlayStation Move Is Necessary for Beyond
Developer rules out motion controls for epic
It may not have been designed with motion in mind, but Heavy Rain was an early showpiece for the PlayStation Move.

Feature Crafting the Contrasting Sounds of The Unfinished Swan
Secret gardens and synths
The Unfinished Swan is a blank canvas; an engrossing adventure open to interpretation and debate.
