I want this, come on holidays and a PS3/Move bundle.

Posted by YukoAsho

The calibration problems are exactly why I'm not going anywhere near this thing.
 
Yeah, I'm sure it kicks major ass when you have the perfect setup, but who the hell has the perfect setup?

Posted by TheUnsavedHero

Seems alright. But other than random sports and mini-games, I can't think of any other good application for these types of controls.

I love the greenscreened QLs for motion games, great idea.
 
Also, would you say that two sticks per player is really the intended/ideal experience?

Edited by Solh0und

Hmm....where have I seen this before? 
 
Edit: Christina Lee does a voice in this game(She's the Pulse girl)

Looks like Wii Sports... but that's not necessarily a bad thing.  Definitely a decent enough start for the Move's life-cycle.   
Also... Gladiator Duel.  My favorite real-world sport.

Confirmed: Ryan really likes vibrating blue and purple balls attached to shafts.

Wish I had a PS3

Posted by nmarchan

Yeah it looks like the move stuff works really well, but I already have a Wii, so  I already own this game.

jeff is a lefty like me i feel loved.

Great QL. Green Screen tech was working clean! Surprised at how good it looks.
 
The game looks pretty fun, maybe a little shallow but technically seems to be very sound.

Posted by Slaneesh

very proffesional.

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.

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 senkir

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

Posted by sagesebas

this looks rad

Posted by Sooty

Eww, motion controls.

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 Reverseface

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

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 warmonked

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

@Ygg: your name is green, youll probably buy kinect. 
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 zityz

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

Edited by hollitz

This looks surprisingly fun.  Not really sure that I want one though.
Also Jeff looks like he's losing weight.
 
I'd also like to point out the helicopter in the background of the volleyball game.  I hope that it will be considered in this year's awards.

Posted by mrselfdestruct

You convinced me that I dont need or want Move.

thank you.

Posted by LiK

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

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.

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!

Edited by gbrading

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 reddin

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.

Edited by ImBigInJapan

Based on the character reactions getting a bogie in frisbee golf is justification for suicide.
 
I really don't care for the characters at all... this really needed some kind of customization and quirkiness. I just don't understand  why Sony is dead-set on this "realistic" (yet completely UN-realistic) character design.
It's just bizarre. I suppose I would learn to ignore it but I would be way more into this if I could make a dude in a monkey suit play beach volleyball instead of these clothing catalog models.

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

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 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!

Yeah hes definitely lost some weight!
Posted by SaucyJack

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

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 Willy105

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

Posted by CyleMoore

Video production on this was amazing!

" Man those characters are generic soulless. They are like something out an 80s cartoon about the importance of following the group. "
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 corpulateguitar@gmail.com

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

Posted by Zeouterlimits

I hate the animation, god it's terrible.

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

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

Thats one high tech QL. Good jobs Giantbomb.

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).

Posted by cooljammer00

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

Posted by Bruce

Ryan is such a bear.
