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 women waving their arms around like maniacs while millions watch. In case you want to get the crazed arm waving action going early you can check out the video above from German gaming site GamersGlobal.
They have 30 minutes worth of Move action in that video and go through most of the sports and mini-games that we’ve heard about already. The first thing you’re probably going to notice is the recalibration that occurs, though Wii MotionPlus has to do something like this as well. The second thing is that the sports games seem to share that same lifelessness that Home has. Wii Sports is so successful because it just looks fun, this looks odd until until you get to the non-sports games.
But enough with the nay-saying. It does look like the controls work and work well, and that Sony is actually doing something different with a few of them. Clearly, the big thing that Move offers that the Wii does not is the ability for you to be on the screen as well, and the games that use that seem pretty darn cool, especially with Move’s ability to replace the controller with something else on screen. We’ll just have to wait until E3 to get our own hands on it and tell you all about it in English.
