Sony's Move motion control system is not too far removed from that of the Wii, when it comes right down to it. Yes, detecting the wand's position in three dimensions is a huge improvement over Nintendo's effort but the device...
Here's yet another video of someone using Kinect to do something awesome. Using a PC and some custom-written code, this young man is playing Super Mario Bros. 1 with Microsoft's new un-controller. The controls look a little ...
VG247 has uploaded photos of the entire Microsoft Kinect manual today and there's some information inside which may affect many users' buying decision. Most significantly is the confirmation that you will require a minimum of...
(In honor of the upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive I shall deliver all the news this weekend twice: First the sane way, and then the fear way. It's the weekend, I get to do stuff like this (I h...
We got word of a new Kinect title aimed at powering up your noggin from Namco last week, with the famous Dr. Ryuta Kawashima on board, who is behind Nintendo's famous Brain Training series. Today, Namco spilled the rest of th...
Child of Eden, the one Kinect game that I really wanted to play at PAX 10, was a no show this year. To make up for that, fate tossed Kung Fu Live! my way, and I loved it. It's basically old-school Mortal Kombat but with bett...
When motion control first came out with the Wii, one of the most relaxing activities to take part in was the golf game that came with Wii Sports. It wasn't exactly accurate, and it didn't always work right all the time, but i...
When Sony announced that it would be releasing a motion controller for the PlayStation 3, no one was shocked. The success of the Wii had virtually guaranteed that Nintendo's competitors would start scrambling to enter the mot...
Keita Takahashi may be famous for making bright, happy games such as Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, but the quirky developer has a bleak and depressing view on the future of the games industry. In fact, he doesn't think h...

Microsoft demagogue and game developer Peter Molyneux has assured us all that Kinect won't kill videogame controllers. That's a relief, because Kinect is so hot looking that we were sure it would eliminate all other forms of ...
If you've been having a so-so day, this should cheer you up: EA Sports isn't shoehorning motion control into Fight Night Champion, the next entry in its boxing franchise. Thank goodness! In an interview with Eurogamer, gamepl...
It's a little weird to write a story that contains the terms, "Fox News," "videogame" and "sex" yet isn't actually negative. Well, not in the traditional sense, anyway. Fox News Orlando reports that the University of Central ...
NBA Jam is the lost basketball game for a whole generation. Born in the arcades, this legendary title was the very first basketball game to properly recreate the likenesses of the players we grew up and loved. With insane com...
I was at E3, but I sort of wasn't. Shooting/editing video non-stop kept me from seeing a lot of what the show had to offer, and don't even get me started on the parties I missed. One thing I did see at E3 was a prevailing lac...
Whether you care for Microsoft's Kinect or not, the fact of the matter is that the technology inside the device is pretty damn cool. Thanks can be given to PrimeSense, an Israeli company that developed the technolog...
Hollie Bennett and I just got some time in with Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. After seeing Miyamoto basically face-plant in his attempts to get the game's controls to work at the Nintendo press conference, I was sort of sc...
We shot a proper interview/hands-on with Hollie and myself playing this new John Daly golf game for the PS Move. I promise we did. For reasons beyond my control, we can't show it to you right now. All we can show you is this...
You know, I'll admit it: some of the most (drunken) fun I have had playing games with friends was with Ubisoft's Just Dance. And after last night, I would have to say that Harmonix's Dance Central for Kinect, after my hands-o...
So you've got a snazzy new motion controller, and need a game to show it off with. What do you go with. Sports? Exercise? Slapping games? Well, there's all that, and PlayStation Move has them, too, but they could certainly do...
Our initial reaction to the PlayStation Move has been all over the map, just like all the gamer reactions out there: will Sony's answer to the Wiimote actually be any fun? We got a better look today during Sony's E3 press con...
That's it! Now you know! Kinect for Xbox 360 is launching worldwide this holiday, beginning with North America on November 4th, 2010. The launch lineup will include over 15 titles, including Kinect Sports, Kinectimals, Kinect...
I'll say it right now: Kinect Sports is Wii Sports...for Kinect. That's hardly a bad thing, as Wii Sports is pretty awesome. Plus, it's being developed by Rare. In fact, a man from Rare was right on hand to demonstrate exactl...
And they are having an AMAZING time! Too bad I am not having nearly as much fun watching them play. OH SNAP! Seriously, though: While Kinect may be pretty incredible technology, I am still not sold on it. I love my Wii and l...
You know what is going to be fantastic about this year's E3? It won't just be Nintendo executives flailing around on stage looking like idiots. This year all three companies are going to have highly paid business men and wom...
My guess is that we have some Indian readers out there (it is the second most populated country in the world), and that this may be of interest to them. If we don't then here is a bit of random novelty for the rest of us. HP ...
OH NO THE BUTTONS! SO MANY BUTTONS TO PRESS! AN INVENTION AS OLD AS TECHNOLOGY ITSELF AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE IT! That's how Microsoft believes you think. At least according Project Natal demagogue Marc Whitten, wh...
Information on games for the upcoming Xbox 360 add-on Project Natal sure come from the strangest places. The latest bit comes from writer/director James Gunn, best known for his work as writer of the Dawn of the Dead remake a...
We all know that Crytek's CryENGINE 3 engine (redundant?) can make things look really, really pretty. We also know that some good games can come from it. However, how well will it handle the upcoming motion control apocalypse...
We've been chatting to Softkinetic Studios' Mike Nichols about the future of motion control. He should know all about it, because he was a producer for what we now know as Project Natal. His current studio is working on its o...
Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg isn't shy about his opinion when it comes to Project Natal. In fact, the company's attempt to grab a slice of the casual market is being hyped to the Moon, so much so that Greenberg believes it wil...
Quantic Dream has already talked up its interest in motion controls, having even at one point designed its own controller for Heavy Rain. Vague hints have even been dropped that a future update could bring PlayStation Move su...
This morning we told you how Sony tried to diminish the Wii's achievements in the hopes we'd pay attention to PlayStation Move. This afternoon, we give you Microsoft diminishing the Wii's achievements in the hopes we'll pay a...
With PlayStation Move gearing up for launch this year, Sony is pushing out the boat to try and make us forget that it's basically copying the Wii. The best way to do that, of course, is the imply that the Wii ruined motion co...
