Recently we asked you if you were satisfied by the way Sony and Microsoft had supported Move and Kinect and the resounding answer from 54% of voters is ‘No’.
“Yes, I regret buying my PS Move. Luckily I didn’t buy the other analog part thingy, hopefully Sorcery will change this though,” said TSA member Nauraph, echoing the thoughts of many.
Sorcery launches on May 25th and our hands on was generally positive. Dan said title meant it was ‘time to dust off your Move’, and hopefully the release will restore people’s faith in the motion control system a little.
Whilst people aren’t all that happy with the way Sony has handled Move, Kinect fared little better. “I’ve got the two Kinect sports games and Kinect Adventures which are quite fun but are only used when people are round,” said BigBadWolf. “I also had Sonic Free Riders which handled like a cabbage in a tumble dryer. [Kinect] gets dusted more than it gets used, which is a shame.”
However, not everyone felt their motion controllers had let them down. McProley was one of the minority who did not regret buying into motion control. “I’m a sucker for House Of The Dead and other on the rails shooters. Dead Space extraction is awesome too!” he said and I am inclined to agree with him on Dead Space. The problem is that whilst the shooter works well with Move, it’s just a port of a Wii game.
With E3 looming 28% of voters were hoping that Microsft and Sony were going to deliver something more than yet another dancing game or a Wii port.
Whilst Microsoft have been pretty quiet about what they’ve got coming up, Sony have been firing out new game announcements with abandon. Unfortunately, none of the titles they’ve announced so far use Move; Move owners must be hoping they’re holding back a big surprise.
