Tell Us Dammit

Dammit, we want you to tell us stuff! Stuff like what you would like to see from PlayStation Move.

This isn’t some marketing survey or whatever. It’s an emotional investment in you. Yes, we’re interesting in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know enough about us — more than you even want to, we’re sure. But, hey, we’d like to know about you, too.

Anyway, here’s today’s question…

Sony showed off its newly-christened PlayStation Move motion controller yesterday. They demoed a Wii Sports clone, a minigame collection familiar to anyone who's played Eye Toy, a fighting game akin to Punch-Out!!, a couple of shooters and a bizarre office chair racing game. Is this what you want from Move? And if not, what else would you like to see?

Me? I just want to see Quantic Dream's David Cage given a Move development kit and a ridiculous amount of money. Heavy Rain II with motion control? Yes please.


    As much as I am a mouse and keyboard guy, and always will be. I like trying out new control systems and ways of interacting with computers.

    That being said I was kinda burnt with the wiimote (and then again with the motion+) They were okay novelties but not worth the price.

    Someone else can be the guinea pig this time around, and I might jump on after everyone else is convinced.

    As for what I'd like to see. The first company who gets sword fighting motion controls right will own my soul (preferably lightsabers).

    With motion control, I don't want to be beaten by a kid who is waving the controller around violently. If they can take the 'Wii' out of motion control and re-invent it so that things are less 'waggle' happy and more precise then I will be happy. Having said that, there is no way that I would like these to replace the controller at all as I feel controllers and gaming go hand in hand (Excuse the pun).

    From all screen shots, it does look promising. If I was to say what one sort of game I would like to play it would have to be an ice hockey game as I am a big fan of the sport. Slap shots, wrist shots, poke checks, stopping goals as a goalie and fights. It all lends itself to the controllers, if they can integrate skating some how then it should be something fun to play.

      I'd second the ice hockey call. I'm surprised there hasn't been a crack at this yet. It would definitely lend itself to the more accurate 1:1 movements of the Move.

    So far I think Sony are doing a good job and differentiating their product from the Wii with the games shown. I just hope they don’t turn into a total Wii clone when they realise it’s far more profitable to do so. As for the move I’d like to see more mature games, just think of how many great game ideas for the Wii haven’t been given the green light because they were mature. If Sony swoops in and grabs this market it should be good.

    Is it really meant to look like a wierd sex toy? Surely, they are going to remove the knob from the end of it?

    Remember the controversy over the ja ja binks dolls. Isn't this going to be worse?

    A giant pictionary-like game where you have to draw stuff in the air. Throw in some light-trail kinda graphics (fantavision-like perhaps?), and it could be fun...

    ...maybe... :) I'll shut up now.

      That actually sounds cool to me. you could even play it over a network with friends and have some kind of voice response to guess what it actually is.

      I Think what the PS3 needs is actual party style games, like LBP, to feature on the PS3. At my friends places we always play the wii with 4 player games (SSB, Mario, Wii sports) and sometimes 4 player halo on the xbox. Most of my friends dont have PS3s and if they do, dont really have any party style games.

        Either pictionary, or something like JSR where vandalising (or 'street art' perhaps to make it more censor-friendly) where you have to tag, colour-in and personalize things in a virtual world.

        Couple this with a mass-online-multiplayer game and I guess it'd be the ultimate way of customizing graphics and skins.

        Taking this to the next level, given the move can be detected in a 3d plane, you could also allow players to model their own objects, starting with a giant sphere and letting them chip away at it; a virtual stone-and-chisel if you may.

        I really like those ideas actually... :)

    Here's hoping that developers would ramp up their effort on the motion-tracking technology! I'd be happiest if Sony tightens up their QA over potential shovelwares unlike the Wii/DS debacles.

    "bizarre office chair kung-fu game" - Fixed :) Regardless of PlayStation Move or not, the above game needs to be made, it just screams of awesome!

    Overall, after the E3 2009 Tech Demo, all of what was shown at GDC isn't really a surprise for me. It was expected that the first wave of games that hit the shelves were going to be abit 'simplier' in gameplay.

    There is alot that mimics what Nintendo brought to the table, the same can be said about alot of the PR shots that Sony relesed also, but I don't completely agree on Sony outright stealing and copying everything we saw yesterday.

    They've had tech demos for the beginning of this tech working on the PS2 (there are vids out there) and the majority of games shown yesterday I don't believe are 1st Party games.

    So yeah, with my actual Wii gathering dust at the moment, I'll probably still get it but I don't really have a wishlist of what I want it to do. There is only one thing that I do want from all of this.

    Move Controller Controls Optional.

    So when Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, etc... come out, I don't mind if they have an optional play method, but I want these types of games to still support the regular DualShock.

    I love the idea of an Ice Hockey game. Would you use one Move or two?

    What about a Rugby game? I love Rugby. They could make it so epic.

      I would suggest two of the remotes for hockey, just like you would hold a hockey stick really. If you are playing as a goalie you will need one for your stick and your blocker... and for fighting, one for punching and one for trying to get the jersey over your opponents head.

    A little off topic here but how will Natal make movement possible?, has this been explained?. With the Wiimote and Move it’s down to the stick but I don’t think I’ve seen a single Natal demo where the computer didn’t move for you or you just used your hands. I can’t imagine people being too thrilled with the prospect of having to walk or run in place to move.
