Who’s up for some MAG? I’ve only played it once, when I got the Move controller and I got destroyed so I’ll probably use the ordinary controller next time! It hasn’t caught the attention of Youtubers like BLOPS or BfBC2 has but there must be more people playing it than Medal of Honour online surely? (Don’t call be Shirley!)
You’d think I had loads of time to spare. Might be a few days before I get a chance to play again!
Well, I bought a Playstation Move controller and a navigation controller, plus MAG, as that’s the only shooter supporting Move out there right now.
I’ve only played 2 of the supplied demos, Shooter (accurate but yawn inducing on-rails shooter) and Echochrome ii, an interesting game where you line up shadows to allow a character to run across the screen and escape.
MAG is now loading. It downloaded a 35MB PS3 update fairly quickly but the second 520.84MB update is crawling along.
Yeah, it’s just like the Wii, but with fancy graphics.
Gamestop are offering a trade in for the Playstation Move starter pack. Trade in 2 games and pay €14.99 for the new motion controller. play.com has the pack for €55.99 so it might be worth checking out how much you can get for these games in other stores as you’re only getting €20 per game, some of which are quite new.
I notice that COD WAW for the Wii is on the list, as is Blur for the PS3 (and my hate for that game is without limit) so there’s plenty to go with. MW2 is there too but I think I’d rather keep that than play Blur again.
Will you be getting the new Playstation Move controller?
Playstation Move, from the future by Kevin Butler.
It’s funny, and throws a few punches at the Wii and Natal but did you see the guy hunched over playing the FPS? If I had to do that for any length of time I’d be sending Sony the bills for my physio!
Oh, here’s a less than glowing review of the Playstation Move.
How did people react? There is a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the product, and people were talking about similarities to Nintendo titles and about the price of the product in hushed tones. There were jokes made about the look of the Move; many people compared it to a certain sexual toy. Others placed the glowing orbs on their crotch, to mimic testicles. In short, there wasn’t a lot of love for the Move at the launch.
