"Whee, Sports." 
 
Very funny, Jeff.
 
But, from what I can tell from 30 seconds of some table tennis archery, and sword-fighting, pretty much.

"whee sports"

What an anticlimactic ending...

Posted by upwarDBound

At least it looks nice.

I think it's footage from a sizzle reel that has been edited into several clips. 
That would explain why they all end so abruptly.

Cool tech demo...

Goood Subcaption. (Is that the right word, subcaption? Probably not, huh.)

"Whee Sports"
 
I see what you did there, Jeff.

Puns.

Those are certainly mini-games I've played before, only with all the charm sucked out of it.  
 
Yup. 

Posted by immike

man, this is not looking good, but it may be the lack of music. Must be it.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Its like Wii Sports minus the personality. Half of the reason I like Wii Sports was that I could create a baseball team full of the worlds most evil people. Hitler, Stalin, the Joker, Jesus... just kidding about the Jesus bit. 
 
Consider me uninterested, and I sold my Wii.

This has some potential...
 
 
 
to be bad.

It's missing that NIntendo charm. If I were Sony, I'd be pushing the SOCOM 4 motion control stuff and not Wii Sports: PS3 edition.

Posted by supermike6

YES! Did you see that Ping pong? IT WAS INTENSE. I can NOT WAIT!!!!!

Posted by PJ

Did they just seriously show of three sports that all were in Wii Sports Resort? I bet theyll have Jetskis and bowling too.

Wishlisted!!!

I like sports!
Posted by MormonWarrior

Between this and Natal, I just gotta say...nobody seems to understand the personality thing of the Wii. I hate the Miis and all, but at least they add flavor to the game. This just looks like bad generic realistic stuff.
 
But hey, maybe it's way fun. All I know is I don't need a ping pong video game. The real thing's always more fun and plenty accessible already.

Where's baseball?

One look at the visuals of this game is like a pictograph of "missing the point". 
 
"Hardcore" gamers don't want to play ping pong on their PS3, and grandmas don't want to play as busty young women. 
 
And hitpoints in the sword fighting game? 
 
REALLY? 
 
Sony, once again, displays just how little they know about the market they've been in for almost two decades now.

When did sword fighting become a sport exactly?

Posted by Gamer_152

I can't blame Sony for bringing out a sports game at launch for their peripheral (at least not when their launch titles seem to be covering a wide variety of genres) but this doesn't have the charm of Wii Sports. Maybe that's what some people prefer but I feel like there's something missing.

And allot less personality, or art design. Or Fun.

Fencing says hello? 
 
Granted what was shown in the video was far from fencing but... go Playstation Move! Yeah... (no).

I don't think even fencers would deem it sword fighting. Of course if they wore armor and carried shields it would be a lot more metal.

The "Whee, sports!" description was about 10 trillion times funnier than this looks.

Posted by Griddler

Table tennis, archery and swordfighting all in one game? With motion controls??
WHY HASN'T THIS BEEN DONE BEFORE??!!!!
 
 
 
oh wait...

@JazGalaxy: Where does it say this is for hardcore gamers?
Posted by Evilsbane

Its amazing how they can take a cool concept and make it look like complete shit.

Posted by Artemis_D

If this is what you wanted... wouldn't you already own a Wii?  Can someone please tell me why this exist?

Posted by Doubt

what makes it worse from all these playstation motion control horrible games is how the videos just end abruptly lol

Posted by Kraznor

These all seem like kind of early tech demos, not sure why everyone is hating on them all so intensely. Yes, its like the Wii, just hopefully better. And lets not forget Sony actually knows a thing or two about the internet, so these all have the potential for online multiplayer.

Well many of PS3 owners just have PS3, this will help them convert their girlfriends and Mom's now as well, and they didn't have to buy a Wii which they might not want to buy to do that. 
 
Plus many girls still hate PS3 and Xbox even if they get converted to like the Wii. Both of my best friends own Wii's and PS3s, and their wife/girlfriend will play the Wii when i am over, but if we turn PS3 on they go "oooh, PS3, lets do something else... blaaaah... im a girl.... blaaaah..." My best friends girlfriend loves their Wii and plays Blue Ocean on her own now all the time, but he bought Aquanaut's Holiday for the PS3 (spent a lot for it too on ebay) and she won't even touch it, even though it looks nicer than Blue Ocean, because she is scared of the PS3. PS3 is still more intimidating to casual gamers than Wii because of the way it turns on, and has online, and has a regular controller. Now if he buys the wand, she will accept his PS3!!! AWESOME! And then he really didn't need the Wii which he doesn't play...

Wii Sports is good enough for me.

Posted by ArchScabby

So this looks like basically the most boring game ever.

Posted by Brunchies

I'll just stick with playing my wii, thanks sony. 

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

This is pretty sweet.

Posted by Junpei

This is bothersome, even though the Move is easily the superior tech to the WiiMote they are launching it wiht the same slate of shovelware that plagues the Wii. This is not how you make a case with trying to do something new, this is how you pander to a demographic.

Posted by JazGalaxy
@Mickey: That's my point. It;s NOT for hardcore games. And it's not for casual gamers either. It's Home all over again. 
 
Sony has to take nIntendo's idea... and then Sonify it, which generally means try to make it cool, edgy, gritty, and "hardcore" and then watch it fail.
