Get a Move on ... with SOCOM 4

We've seen how a fighter operates with the PlayStation Move, now let's get a look at how a shooter functions under Sony's new motion controller. Here's SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs.

Looks like the Move enables not only the expected point-and-shoot aspect of a tactical shooter, but also the tactics as well, using the wand to identify objectives to your squadmates and send them there to carry out your orders.

DISCUSSION

Random question; are they using fat PS3s for the demo units? It kinda looks like one of the older models attached to this kiosk...

The controls seem pretty standard "shooter with a pointer"-ish from what I've seen; pretty much exactly what we'd come to expect from the pre-existing Wii first and third-person shooters. Not really my bag, personally, but I know quite a few people who LOVE the Wii controls for Metroid Prime.

Also, that orb glows BRIGHTLY. Wow.
