well Sony did say Move, unlike kinect 1.0, would receive attention/adoption amongst the consumer through experience rather than advertising. fast forward a few years and Move is only justified as a better motion control device to either one of its competitors, let alone kinect 1.0, but the PlayStation Move has continued it's awareness over to the PS4 as both an optional controller and the primary building block for VR 1to1 limb tracking. it has become so crucial to motion gaming that the DualShock 4 and the VR headset has adopted the technology, also.

where is kinect 1.0?

Sony has filed Patents for New Motion Controllers

Two new patents filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) suggest that a new motion-controller could be on the way, specifically designed to boost the interactive nature of the company’s virtual reality (VR) platform, PlayStation VR.

There’s even a hand strap to help you keep your grip on reality.

Is It Time to Move on From the PlayStation Move?

The PlayStation VR is using motion controller technology from 2010. Is this a detriment to the PlayStation VR?

YES! Sony really does need new peripherals for PSVR. I was surprised when they announced it. The move should've stayed exclusive to the PS3.

The move works well. If you want them to move on, it needs to be better.

Move and the camera needs a upgrade.

robleroy2221d ago

The move works perfectly
But not many games have implemented it very well.
Two good move games are :
Batman VR

But a move controller with an analog stick or move handgloves would be welcome as additionals.

I love the fact that Sony is loyal in supporting old devices like psp or move and lately even ps2

OffRoadKing2221d ago

Yes and VR and Kinect and 3D and augmented reality and any of the other stupid gimmicky fads that are out there.
