What We Loved, What We Hated About the Playstation Move

Due out later this month, the Playstation Move promises to deliver the best of two worlds: The motion-sensing realism and casual fun of the Wii combined with raw muscle power and high-definition graphics of the Playstation 3.

We've had the peripheral add-on in our offices for a little less than a week now, plenty of time to play a myriad of games, test out the limitations of the hardware and figure out just what the controller brings to the Playstation experience.

Over the course of the morning we'll be delivering to you reviews for quite a few games, impressions, hands-on with demos, videos, pictures, guides and tech tests of the Playstation Move.

Why don't you hang out and join us for a read? If you don't have the time, or would rather cut to the chase, I've summarized all of our thoughts below in concise summaries. But remember, the full, in depth coverage will be hitting the site throughout the morning complete with plenty of videos and images.

The Hardware

Totilo and I agree: The Playstation Move is a keeper, offering up enough potential while absolutely nailing the basics of motion-control to make the relatively modest investment more than worthwhile.

The Game Reviews

Sports Champions: This high-def version of Wii Sports offers up an eclectic mix of motion-controlled sports that we almost entirely loved. You're going to want to get this one.

Kung-Fu Rider: A neat, but exceptionally thin game that quickly grows tiresome.

Tumble: This stripped down version of Boom Blox offers plenty of mind-bending puzzles with very little artful direction or colorful distractions.

Start the Party: The premiere showcase for the Move's amazing capacity for augmented reality.

The Game Impressions and Demos

Flight Control: The Playstation 3 Move version of the iPhone game offers all of the kitschy fun of the original with precise motion controls.

High Velocity Bowling: Bowling, pure and simple. Not much new here.

Racquet Sports: A Wii Tennis wannabe/expansion for the PS3.

Beat Sketchers: A musical art game, the sleeper hit in the making.

Echochrome II: A terrific puzzle sequel all about light and shadow.

TV Super Stars: An interactive gameshow that will test your tolerance for British-style pop TV.

The Shoot: Who wants a light-gun shooter? They're usually fun.

Heavy Rain Move Controls: A debatable change, an improvement for we're-not-sure-who.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 Move Controls: A fun little motion add-on to an already fantastic game.

EyePet Move Controls: While the Move controller adds some neat functionality to the digital pet. It's still the same, rather wonky game.
