While I've heard it has pretty good controls, I've also heard it doesn't have many games for it to work with and that most of the games that it works with aren't all that good. The only game I can think of that it might be fun to use with is No More Heroes.

Yes, and so was Kinect.

Leave the gimmicks to Nintendo.

I've used it before and it actually works very well. The problem is that there are barely any decent games that use it.

Never tried it before, but my cousin has it. Probably didn't look cool enough for the consumer, because it looks like a Wii knockoff, even though it isn't.

Unfortunately, there are almost no good games that support Move, which makes absolutely no sense at all.

I agree with this. The Move is the only one that would actually work for me, but the lack of games kills it for me. Wii is fine and all, but sometimes the motion detection is a little bit off and the kinect is just horrible when it comes down to gaming.

To me, it's kind of like the vita; impressive technology, but few games to support it.

Totally. I bought it over a year ago for LittleBigPlanet's Move Pack, and I haven't touched it since.

Wii motion plus was pretty good, but still off. The Wii U apparently has some sort of new fangled sensor bar (it is all black) that makes everything 1 : 1. I'm not exaggerating, the Nintendo Land Zelda game is 1 to 1.

Motion control is a brilliant idea. However game creators have yet to understand how to use it. They still seek to replace a controller using it which will simply never happen, nothing beats a controller for controlling. Until they realise the point of motion control is to add to the original experience and not provide a new one, they will continue to make pathetic games.

A prime example of how to use motion control. You are making your way down a hall in an RPG and there is an item on a shelf in the game, you reach up with your hand and take the item. That is something motion control would be best suited for, something which uses the body in ways that will come naturally and be more involving.

I hate to sound like a broken record here, but it's actually pretty good. No decent games that support it, though.


The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called...

I have used it before and it seemed alright. But there is no appeal at all for these fancy controllers. Just give me a normal Gamepad please.

It would've done a lot better if more games supported it.

It was fun in Killzone 3. Well I won one of those gun controllers which the move fits into. Really put me in the battle.

But yeah it was a failure.

Have you guys played it with No More Heroes? Should I buy it for No more Heroes or is it not worth the 40-50 bucks it would cost me to get it for only one game? I know no more heroes was fun on the wii with wii remote and I could only imagine it being even funner on the ps3 with its Playstation Move. I don't know, at the same time I feel like it would be an idiot move to get it for one game and especially since that one game supports regular controls.

Of course it's a fail.

Kinect is okay because it's funny to watch people play Dance Central.

The Nintendo Wii is the ultimate out of the three.
