Shake it off
Perhaps the biggest criticism that's been levelled at PlayStation VR since launch is that the PlayStation Move controllers just aren't up to snuff. While they're fine for general play, pretty much anyone that's messed around in virtual reality will have noticed some wobble from time to time. This occurs when the PlayStation Camera is...
Some of you will remember, but for those who don't, Supermassive Games' schlocky horror Until Dawn was originally in development for the PlayStation 3 – and, primarily, the PlayStation Move motion controller. It was planned to be an exclusive for Sony's illuminating wand, with the gameplay built around the 3D tracking of the...
Demo drops today
Remember the curious PlayStation Move powered pheromone shooter we told you about last week? That’s right – Gal Gun. Well we figured we’d remind you that today is the day you can finally get a grip on the game’s Japanese demo. You’ll need a Japanese PlayStation Network account to get in on the steamy action, but that can...
If you’ve not got much planned this Valentine’s Day, then perhaps you might be tempted to check out Inti Creates’ bonkers PlayStation Move powered pheromone shooter, Gal Gun.

The newly announced Resident Evil 6 may have been the main title under the spotlight at last night's 15th anniversary bash, but Capcom also found time to discuss some of its other upcoming Resident Evil products
One such title that was referenced was the Resident Evil: Chronicles Collection HD, which bundles the two former Nintendo Wii exclusives,...
We'll be honest with you: we have a fondness for Olympic games
It probably stems from our love of minigame compilations; we adore games in which there's always something new to do. With the sheer array of events on offer, Olympic games are traditionally packed to the brim with different mechanics, and London 2012: The Official Video Game sounds like it'll be no different. Officially announced this..
Who brought up toasted sandwiches? It's getting to that time in the day where we could go for a nice, appetising toasted cheese sandwich
It must include pickle and onions though — important ingredients. Mmmm, hungry. So who did bring up toasted sandwiches? Oh, that's right: Stickmen Studios has announced that it's bringing its former WiiWare...
Skill based control has become a foundation of EA Sports' output this generation
Tiger Woods, Skate and Fight Night have all experimented with right analogue stick inputs, bringing a new level of fidelity to traditionally arcadey experiences. Grand Slam Tennis 2 mimics EA Sports' ambition, bringing a new level of shot precision to the game of...
We're probably too socially awkward to understand why people enjoy public humiliation, but apparently it's a legitimate pastime
Seriously, all you need to do is look at the sales numbers for Ubisoft's Just Dance series — the latest entry of which, Just Dance 3, has already surpassed seven million units with no signs of slowing. That puts the franchise's total sales at a whopping 25 million units..
In a surprisingly candid interview, SCE UK's Fergal Gara has admitted that the PlayStation Move should have performed better in Britain
The executive noted that while the device has gained a "solid foothold" in the region, there is room for improvement on the software side. "I'd say we have a solid foothold with ," Gara revealed. "Could it, should it, have done more? I..

But as exciting as that sounds, it isn't even...
Grand Slam Tennis 2 is right at the top of our most anticipated releases for 2012
We know, pretty weird huh? But regular readers will be all too aware of our adoration for tennis based video games. While we're still a little concerned about the quality of the game's pledged PlayStation Move support — please, please, please be good — we're still intrigued by the game's standard controller..
Fiery tennis legend, John McEnroe, will head up the cover of the global version of Grand Slam Tennis 2, publisher EA Sports has announced
The argumentative legend will be joined by current top-dog Novak Djokovic and female favourite Maria Sharapova. There's no room for Andy Murray on the UK cover. The cover will differ across Europe, with France...
It's evident from yesterday's reannouncement that Sorcery has grown since its promising debut at last year's E3
While the PlayStation Move exclusive includes the same precise motion control mechanics as its original demo, it's visually prettier and much bigger in scope. "Coming out of E3, we knew there were some things we weren't happy with," design director Brian Upton told the..
Sorcery was the first game to make people take notice of the PlayStation Move
Debuted at E3 over a year ago, The Workshop developed motion exclusive generated buzz because it felt like the title gamers had been calling for ever since the Wii was released. Family oriented, yes, but with a deep underlying core. A year later, Sony's re-revealed Sorcery to the North American press. And, as we'd hoped,..
Slick your hair back, iron your best shirt and slip on those dancing shoes -- Just Dance 3 has finally launched on PlayStation 3
Ok, ok, so dancing in your living room in front of the television isn't quite like pulling shapes in a sweaty club surrounded by under-dressed women, but that's where your imagination comes in. If you close your eyes and think hard enough, Katy Perry will appear right..
Ghostlight's taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that its working with Idea Factory to bring the uber niche Agarest: Generations Of War 2 to Europe in 2012

There are still surprises in the video game industry
When GameTrailers' Geoff Keighley promised an unbelievable PlayStation 3 exclusive would debut at this year's VGAs, speculation automatically pointed towards the heavily rumoured Sony Smash Bros. But a brand new teaser trailer has proved us all wrong. The Last Of Us is the name of Sony's next PlayStation 3 exclusive. The
Despite receiving a super-positive review from Eurogamer today, developer Just Add Water is keeping quiet about the release date of its upcoming high-definition remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath
Still, thanks to our friends over at TheSixthAxis, we've at least got some more details to mull over. According to the website, Stranger's Wrath HD will...
Quiet and steady has always been Sony's strategy with PlayStation Move, and in a year packed with steady software support, it looks like the tactic has worked out
A report on Industry Gamers puts the motion wand's sales at nine million units worldwide, while Microsoft has yet to release an update on Kinect's ten million milestone in March. The implication from the publication is that sales for..

The cardboard cut-outs are gone
It's not just SCEA that's gone through a re-imagining of its marketing strategy lately — SCEE's jumped on board too. And there's definitely a hint of the "old" PlayStation marketing message in this new European PlayStation Move commercial. The 60-second spot shows an unreasonably attractive couple rushing...
Over a year ago Sony announced a game called Sorcery
The PlayStation Move controlled action title quickly caught the attention of the gaming stratosphere, promptly elevating itself to the status of "killer app". But shortly after its announcement, the game went missing in action. We thought it had been cancelled. But thankfully, that's not the case. In an interview with IGN, Sony's Eric..
Clearly Sony hasn't promoted titles such as The Fight, Move Fitness and DanceStar Party heavily enough in the UK, as British member of parliament Dianne Abbott has criticised "PlayStation" games for the on-set of children's obesity
Far be it from me to advertise any particular product in this Chamber, but Wii Fit games are perhaps better than PlayStation games, the Hackney North and Stoke..
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..
Insomniac's been pretty great about adding new maps to Resistance 3 with each new patch
And from Friday it's chucking another couple of locations into the game, completely gratis. Patch 1.05 will add a new 16-player map called Creek to the game, in addition to a four-player map called Granary. Both will be available to players for free once they've downloaded the patch. Thanks Insomniac. But the..
With the BioShock franchise loosely associated with the XBOX platform -- despite all of the games appearing on PS3 -- it looks like Sony is going out of its way to make BioShock Infinite feel more at home on its premier platform
One way its achieving this is by heavily promoting the game's PlayStation Move implementation. In a new interview, Irrational Games gaffer Ken Levine has said that he can't..
Virtually every banner PlayStation 3 exclusive includes PlayStation Move support at this point
Except one — Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. In an interview with JustPushStart, Naughty Dog's Keith Guerette has explained that the motion controller was initially considered for the banner third-person shooter, but was eventually rejected. Sony actually did approach us in the early stages of..

When Ken Levine announced PlayStation Move support for BioShock Infinite at this year's E3, it seemed more like a statement of intent than anything else
But in a new PlayStation.com post, Sony has hinted that BioShock Infinite's heavily anticipated Move support might be further along than we anticipated. Outlining all the upcoming PlayStation Move related software, the article says of BioShock..

When the Nintendo Wii was new and shiny, hardcore gamers screamed for some traditional third-party experiences
Publishers compromised by releasing rails-shooters, with some of the more memorable titles being Capcom's Resident Evil 'Chronicles' series. The light-gun games — entitled Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles — fleshed out portions of classic Resident Evil fiction from a..
Back before the PlayStation Network went down Dark Energy Digital promised us a PlayStation 3 release of its former XBOX 360 exclusive Hydrophobia Prophecy

We're so excited
As we've probably written approximately eighteen times now, House Of The Dead: Overkill was one of our favourite Nintendo Wii titles. So we're ridiculously stoked to see the silly on-rails shooter make the jump to PS3 with full PlayStation Move support. The game's vulgar, potty-mouthed and downright ugly, but that's absolutely part of the charm. Catch the trailer after the jump for..
EA Sports has served up a new trailer for its PlayStation Move powered tennis sim, Grand Slam Tennis 2
The package is brimming with big names, from Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray, through to Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic. Like the original Grand Slam Tennis, there's also some classic names in there such as Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. We. Cannot. Wait.
Some people are absolutely terrified of clowns, but we don't really understand their trepidation
So they have hideous hair, abnormal grins and way too much make-up, but what's so frightening about... Oh right. Yeah, perhaps we do get it. If clown clowns frighten you when they're being worn by normal human-beings, then you probably shouldn't think about the possibility of a zombie outbreak taking..
City Interactive's dished the dirt on a couple of its upcoming titles
First up is Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, the sequel to the budget — but surprisingly alright — first-person shooter that debuted on PS3 this year. The follow-up — which is now powered by CryEngine 3 — will debut on March 16th, 2012 in North America and March 20th, 2012 in Europe. In other news, City Interactive also announced..
Admittedly we're rather curious about Deep Silver's Winter Stars
Not because it looks particularly outstanding or anything, but just because we're suckers for motion controlled sports games. Sadly, the game's latest "trailer" is low on gameplay details, opting for blinding smiles ahead of useful information. Just look at what you started Nintendo.
This is music to our ears

Regular readers (and followers of our PlayStation Network account) will know we developed a bizarre addiction to The Fight: Lights...
