PlayStation has really learned from its competitors and delivered a compelling and entertaining experience complemented by the hardware's ability to push HD visuals. But like its rival, the success is going to be largely dependent upon the games that support it.

The Move is just more accurate, it gives you a better range of motion, and the PlayStation 3 is a graphical powerhouse. It used to be that you'd tolerate the Wii's graphics in order to use its motion controls. Now you don't have to.

Move doesn't seem like a passing fad, but as is often the case with new hardware, those games that tip you from "wait and see" to "purchase" just aren't there from the start.

As expected, Sony's Move is perfectly competent, hardware-wise, because Sony is a hardware company. But making games that mimic Nintendo's casual-friendly Wii party games is the wrong move. Instead, they need to focus on their true fanbase: The hardcore fans.

The platform that Sony built here has incredible potential — now it’s up to game developers to make it worth while.

Its ability to add an extra dimension to non-casual games means that it possesses more than mere novelty value, and should make it a slow-burning success story.

How do you score something this early in its life cycle? We have to score it on potential. We recognise that PlayStation Move could be something great, but it's all about the games. Having played a few titles, we're left wanting more: the technology works, and that's the real point here.

Move is more accurate, and offers HD gaming, but the Wii is less demanding in terms of space, and unless you own a PS3 already, a good deal cheaper.

If you're eager to buy into the system now, don't expect a whole lot of great content straight out of the gate, but with time and certain kinks ironed out, the Move could prove to be a great way to add new gameplay experiences to the PlayStation 3 and attract new, more casual players.

Move won't be for everyone, if only because of its steep price as an optional extra, but those that do invest will find an excellent piece of gaming technology.

It's clear that Sony -- with this outstanding technology -- has the bones to be a fighter that can hold its own in the motion-control space. Whether it has the brains is mostly up to developers; whether it has the stamina is up to consumers.

PS Move also has an advantage in its ability to track movement in a 3D space giving it the potential to extend motion gaming beyond what the Wii can offer. ... However, PS Move does not seem suited to fast action games due to the lag I experienced.

Feels great, I just wish there were more mainstream games that either I could download or buy for this. I have Sports Champions and The Fight:Lights Out and both are good at what they're meant for. I tried Socom and Killzone and didn't like either, plus everyone I have talked to says they are...

I only purchased this because it was on sale. It is very accurate and light to hold. It looks like a glowing ice cream cone. There are not many games to play using this controller, and only a few are actually worth playing.
