So maybe it isn't exactly Mario Paint, but it sure seemed that way. The upcoming PlayStation Move title, previously known as Sing and Draw, allows us to turn our TV into a glorified version of MSpaint, complete with drum loops and audio samples to keep you entertained.

I had a chance to try it out and to be honest, I wasn't very impressed with anything but the control itself. The accuracy of the wand was dead on and makes for an impressive tech demo -- however, the poorly lit room did nothing to help the Eye Toy in terms of video quality, and the current build of the game lacks many of the features that are currently in the works. In hindsight, it failed to keep my interest, but I could easily see how little kids might enjoy playing with it.

Features such as the use of multiple wands, video recording and more are currently being considered, however there was no word on if the features will be ready by the time Tokyo Game Show rolls around. The game is currently set to launch with PlayStation Move in the fall, and will be receiving a retail release in Japan, but as it stands, it'll likely be a PSN exclusive here in the US. Hopefully we'll be able see more at Toyko Game Show, or at Gamescom later this year.
