Good: Gets you out of the chair and moving. It is more accurate and sensitive than Wii sensor technology because the camera looks for the glowing ball. Comfortable to hold, easy and speedy acces to the buttons/controls.
Bad: The motion controller needs to be calibrated every time before you play a game/round.
Comment: I would recommend this to a friend. I sold my PS Move because i didn't use it that much.
Good: Easy to operate, bigger controller than the wii, sturdier than a wii remote, funny squidgy thing on top of remote that changes colour according to action in games, can be charged like a remote
Bad: Shape (it looks like a light up dildo), laggy, needs to be in a certain point for the camera to recognise it
Comment: I own this and play 2 games with it: Michael Jackson: The Experience and HPATDH:P2 (Harry potter and the deathly hallows: Part 2) and they are fun to play (if you like MJ and Harry Potter obv, but this review is about the controller). Anyway, the remote when playing a dance game (e.g. MJ) the controller needs to be in the exact position as shown on screen with excellent timing unlike the wii (which is 10 times easier than the PS3 version) and on HP the remote needs to be pointing like ---- at the screen otherwise if it like this \ or / then it will just move you around and sometimes the controller shuts off when you pause the game and you have to configure the remote again. Basically, the remote is awkward at first, but when you get used to it, it is a good item to purchase
Good: very precise
Bad: it was Wii's idea
Comment: I like it very much.
Good: Improves control on PS3 - I have hated Playstation control pads since the original, and they haven't got any better apart from becoming wireless.
Bad: Doesn't feel as solid or slick as a Wii-mote; The ludicrous bobble on top!!!!!
Comment: Well, I for one am underwhelmed. I agree it is more "accurate" than a Wii controller, but I always found that to be the endearing quality of the Wii - it's more forgiving than real life! If you want to play sports that very accurately model real sports... why not get out there and play the actual sports.
I guess the true test will be games involving wielding a light-sabre or possibly a cricket bat - time will tell
Good: Amazing response time
Bad: Lack of quality games
Comment: Playstation Move in my opinion, is so much more responsive than the Wii due to, use of the Playstation Eye Camera to track the gamers movements. I love the way it feels in my hand (or hands if you have two), and the overall way that the buttons are laid out, suits mine, and I can guarantee, other gamers needs. The only bad thing I can say about this awesome new PS3 peripheral is, there are no quality games out yet. Lets just see what the future brings!
Good: SUPER accurate - has the highest-tech of all 3 systems
Bad: Slight lack of any good games at the moment
Comment: The PS Move combines the camera from kinect and the motion sensors from the wii plus a magnetometer and a large glowing orb. Very comfortable to hold and the accuracy is millimeter. Yes I really mean Millimeter! The camera counts the pixels of the orb and there is NO LAG. Comparing to other systems:
Kinect wont be able to be used for shooting games because it isn't accurate enough (it's an EyeToy V2)
Wii - don't even go there.
Good: Looking easy to use
Bad: I dont know as i have not use it
Comment: hay there:)
As the Sony no doubt the best in its class as well as the market leader in many of its product lines.This play station move is really nice as well as looking pretty easy to use.
The Sony play station move is one of its kind and its the only one which comes with such kind of Wii Device.
Lets see what will be the effect after using it
Good: PS3 & Wii Plus Plus Plus in one
Bad: Not that orginal
Comment: Why not? A ps3 and wii plus but better in one console, im going to buy it for sure. I hope they adapt or can adapt the kinect idea of no controller for some games, but if you think about it that kevin butcher dude is right, how are u gna play some games without a controller for example shooting games or driving games, i cant imagine pretending to have a gun or steering wheel is going to be good. That doesnt mean to say it wont work, it will be awsome for some games jst wont work for others.
But this will be great fun for all games and you still have a serious gaming console that can do everything in one, unlike the wii which isnt good for much else. So yh im sold but i need to see some oof the games to be fully convinced
Good: good sensitivity and buttons
Comment: as Kevin Butler said
"playstation move has something we in the 21st century call buttons which are really useful for anything that doesn't involve catching a big red ball"
