Playstation Finally 'Moves' Off Its Ass

Now real surprise here but Sony's jumping into the motion controller world with their Sony PlayStation "Move" system. It looks like it's going to be a fall release based on what I'm seeing online. Additionally, there's some decent advertising circling the web to support attention to the launch. The new ad campaign A new ad for the Sony PlayStation move, featuring the actor Jerry Lambert as Kevin Butler (the twitter account is a must see), assails the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft's Project


Like I discussed in a previous post, the Wii is simply ahead of the curve right now. How well the play out their marketing dominance with motion controlled gaming remains to be seen. But it's clear that they finally have a fight on their hands (every relevant pun intended). Other than looking like a dorky clowns nose on a light-saber I will say that it seems promising. It's hard to say without actual game play.

So far there's a limited grouping of game coming online, but fear not I'm sure this list will double in size but the time it actually hits the street:
