itwbennett writes “The PlayStation Move hit retail stores on Friday and blogger Peter Smith spent the weekend putting it (and his shoulder) through its paces. So how does this motion controller compare to the Wii? Smith says it ‘felt a lot more precise’ but that ‘there were instances where the depth perception of the camera got lost for a moment.’ The bottom line: ‘If you have a Wii and the Wii Motion Plus accessory, there isn’t a whole lot here right now to justify $100-$170 worth of gear for most gamers.’”
CNET is similarly critical, complaining of the continual calibration requirements and the dearth of good launch titles. The Guardian’s games blog agrees that quality games are currently lacking, but says the accuracy and responsiveness are a step up from the Wii, giving the Move a lot of potential. iFixit did a teardown, providing an interesting look at the hardware inside the device.
