A Safer Way To Throw Darts At Your Television Screen

Wagering the staggering power of the PlayStation 3 combined with the innovative motion control of the PlayStation Move, Devil's Details' Top Darts transforms your television into the world's fanciest dart receptacle.

As a teen I fell in love with darts, but I never quite got over the fear that I'd turn around one day and have my eyeball skewered by a steel tip. After accidentally dropping one too many pointy metal bits into my sneakers I gave up the game. Now developer Devil's Details may have created a way for me to get back into the swing of things.

Presented in full 1080P HD, Top Darts swaps the dangerous projectiles for Sony's big glowing lollipop, giving players the sensation of tossing darts about without the danger of an unwanted ocular piercing.

Up to eight players can take turn participating in games like 501, Around the Clock, and Cricket, with a wide variety of boards and darts to choose from. The only thing missing is my old crew's favorite game, "I bet I can hit you with this dart," and perhaps we're better off without it.

Top Darts is due out sometime during the Christmas season on the PlayStation Network.

That has some fancy visuals, but I wonder how accurate it feels.

I haven't played the Move, so I can't speak for how the '1 to 1' feels.

For example, this seems like an ideal Kinect game, but in reality, after playing the Kinect, I get the feeling unless there was a UI that showed your avatar's hand holding the dart on screen, while it might be fun, it would also feel like blind luck most of the time.

Then again, now that I think back on all the times I played darts in a bar, that actually sounds pretty accurate...

For anyone that has the Move, do your experiences with the controller make it seem like this is something that could work or not?
