I really want to play Bocce and Disc Golf, but I don't want to spend that kind of money just for those two games.

Get hype for Bocce 

Posted by Box3ru13

arg, I kinda want to get this especially seeing how I can get the move bundle for $80 off amazon with free 2 day shipping.  
 
Gladiator, Archery, Bocce all look pretty awesome. But aside from this and maybe playing heavy rain with MOVE i don't know of any other games aside from sorcery that I'd be interested in.

yay, Jeff represent us lefties!

I've played it a bit, best way I'd describe it is that it's what people thought Wii sports would be like before they played it.  The amount of control is much greater, but it does mean you really need that space in front of your TV to take advantage of it, especially for table tennis on higher than easy, because it's _very_ depth based.

I'm the champion of sports.

Posted by SavageM2

I kind of wish they played a bit more of the Bocce game. :P

Posted by Branthog

There's no point to motion control, unless it improves upon or adds something to previous controls. There is nothing I have seen so far that could not be done just as well or even better, by existing control systems.

i think i'd rather play with a nerf set than pretend to use a fancy bow

Never knew Jeff was left-handed.

I get the impression Sony settled with this bundle of odd, underwhelming games for their preliminary package so they could milk regular pop-sports (aka, what was included in Wii Sports) to hell.

Ryan is such a bear.

What is the timecode of the video when Jeff is dancing?

Posted by Spekingur

The package that includes the game and the camera only comes with one controller wand, right? It doesn't include a second wand nor the navigation controller(s).

Thats one high tech QL. Good jobs Giantbomb.

Maybe the game is funded by a generous grant from the uncanny valley?

All the voice acting in the Gladiator fights makes me feel like I'm watching a porn movie.

I hate the animation, god it's terrible.

im planning on getting Kinect just so i can try it out but i also bought Move on day one and to be honest its pretty amazing ive been gaming for around 25+ years now seen the best and worst and this is far from the worst (worst being VB or the NGage), i have Tumble, EyePet (which is pretty fun), and Sports champ the only thing im sadden by is the same argument i have for Kinect how long will time pass before we see new innovative games for them. I'm getting DC for Kinect and thats about it not if MS has the right idea on what to do with it so ill leave that to the other developers, but for now Move is pretty great if your just jaded on motion i dont blame you but trust this the games some developers have been pimping lately are pretty interesting so just try and keep your eyes open. GB for life

its about the gameplay, and clearly by this quick look and jeffs review the game is definitely fun  to play. who cares what they look like, its more about the users anyways. 
Posted by CyleMoore

Video production on this was amazing!

Posted by Willy105

Looks like a fine version of the original Wii Sports for PS3-only owners.
 
Love the green screen.

Posted by Kyodra

The games look fun, but the characters and their behaviour to what's happening looks terrible. I'm still on the fence on this PS Move stuff, it just needs more fun looking games before I'm ready to take the plunge.

Posted by SaucyJack

This is probably the best Move demonstration video I've seen so far.

Yeah hes definitely lost some weight!
Posted by Renocide

The gladiator game is a blast and I was only playing with a single move controller. I can't wait to pick up another one and play it again!

Posted by Zereta

Didn't sell my cousin on Move, I thought it looked pretty good actually. Its a better Wii Sports than Wii Sports was. Still, Kinect is still more interesting to me so we'll see.

Posted by Aarduil

Sports games instead of playing the actual sports always boggles my mind. Especially if said sports are as inexpensive and common as table tennis

Well, this looks surprisingly not horrible, especially for a pack-in minigame collection.
Still, not seeing anything that makes me run out and buy a move controller or two.

Picture in Picture action and excitement! I was more impressed at Giant Bomb's green screen skills rather than Sports Champions.  

"We're not going to take this to 11." Ryan, it always goes up to 11. It's one more than 10.
Posted by Rox360

Very clever use of that green screen! No clumsy picture-in-picture boxes here! I hope this'll be the new standard for motion games, or even some other videos!

Yeah only because it looks better green, I own a PS3 and even if I didn't I wouldn't say such a thing about Move just because of that. I don't have allegiance to console manufacturers, it's incredibly dumb. I think Kinect looks terrible and I won't be buying it. No matter what the cost. "
I think both the Kinect and Move look great, but both suffer from the same price of entry problems along with having just a handful of games that I am actually interested in. I guess I will be a late adopter, holding out hope for more gameplay innovation on both Microsoft and Sony's part.

Great QL. The way Ryan and Jeff were speaking made this seem like I was watching QVC. XD

Btw, I cracked up when Ryan told Jeff to "Step Off!" lol

Posted by mrselfdestruct

You convinced me that I dont need or want Move.

thank you.

Great, sweet. Now bring on all those 200 mini game titles with better visuals.

Posted by LucyGlitter

Wow. I am very disappointed in the move. Very. It doesn't seem to respond as well asthe Wii, and that's been out how long? So not buying.

Posted by warmonked

I gotta say, except for the avatars, everything else looks kinda neat. I had exceptionally low expectations for the move.

Posted by Tr4gic_H3r0

I was going to hold off on buying this, but after seeing sports champion in motion, I really want to play this! What's even more interesting is I own a wii and wii sports/resort.

Posted by Reverseface

As soon as i saw the picture for this video i was like I GOTTA SEE THIS!

Posted by MrKlorox

The PSEye that came with my Move bundle is grainy as ever loving fuck. Should I send for an RMA?

Posted by Sooty

Eww, motion controls.

Posted by sagesebas

this looks rad

Posted by senkir

It's strange, but I kind if want a ps3 now. Mostly for the gladiator and archery games.

Posted by NTM

Hm, at first I was thinking it was reall stupid because it looks exactly like Wii. But... I think this looks great.
Posted by Woodroez

This QL will probably go down in history. You guys are on to something with the green screen stuff. If you don't use that to overlay a little image of the guys playing on the couch during at least QLs for AAA games or, just maybe, for the next Endurance Run, I might be a bit disappointed.

very proffesional.
