I hate to be really thick and girlie but..... we are getting our sons a ps3 as a joint pressie for christmas (they have a ps2 already) So this is a bit like a wi controller? and can it be used on all games or is it just certain games you can use it on?

This is the navigator...it works with the Move 'Wand' which you buy separately. This is like the left hand side of a Dualshock 3 and saves you having to use one with the Move controller. Of course, very few games actually need this yet. To repeat, this is not the Move controller and, even if you got one of them, you can use the controller that comes with the PS3 alongside it.

As for games, many release titles are good for kids and families but more 'mature' gamers have only Resident Evil 5 Gold at the moment (if you can find a copy) but more Move compatible games are promised. As a bonus, the new firmware released today (which gives 3D Blu ray support...woohoo) also lets you use the Move controller to navigate the web browser.

Sorry, PS3 only and will not work on a PS2.

Absolutely ridiculous isn't it? I'm still waiting here for the ps2 firmware update that enable forwards compatibility. I take it it's out in your region?

Thank you so much im not very techy at all! that clarifys it more to the point now i cant just buy that bit for it to work lol :-)
As for firmware? whats that? argh! i think i need to get my fella to look on here instead and ill stick to my amstrad. There seems to be a lot involved in deciding which ps3 to buy too as some are backwards compatible and some are not, some are skinny some are fat and all those different size mb stuff. I think im gonna head to the cave i have been living in for 10 years and stick the kettle on. Thanks again splinters

Firmware unlikely to be a fix for PS2, possibly because the processor will be too slow. You can buy new PS3 packages including the Move controllers and maybe a few games thrown in for around £299-£399. Best of luck.

I ordered mine from the games collection before release and they never posted it, bought it from Amazon the day before and received it on release date...

hmm i rushed out and got a move and if you are thinking of getting one you need 2.5m between you and the camera which I nowhere near have so it works very poor for me. If you havent got the space for this I honestly wouldnt bother.
Sorry to hijack the thread just thought I'd give people a heads up who were thinking of getting one.

If you have got the space this is an excellent price for the navigation controller and i've seen this running with socom 4 and looked good.
Heat given - good find
#11
@Mix69. Have you calibrated your Move correctly? I only have a meter between me and the camera and it works very well.
#12
Pre-ordered mine from play and still haven't recieved it, not happy :P

Saw this :) does it work perfectly? you put a smile back on my face hah :)

i ordered two of these mainly to use on resi evil 5 for co-op but realised u dont need them its just as easy to use ur dualshock 3 in one hand because u dont need to use any of the buttons on the nav controller just the directional pad
so i put them both on ebay go tmy money back
depends what u prefer to use
#15
just a comment about the space it says u need 8 foot from camera to where u play
i have 6 foot of space from camera to were me and my gf play and while it works for some games,other two player games like sports champions table tennis it doesnt work for us because were always going out of the cameras view and our moves dont react
so yeah if u have the required spac eit works well if not not so well

You're new to this sarcasm thing, aren't you?
#17
Can anyone clarify how much of a distance you have to be from the camera as someone mentioned you need 2.5 meters and another mentioned 1 meter also my cam is sitting slightly to the left of my plasma on the stand that my plasma sits on. So does the camera have to bang in the middle on top of the tv. The reason I'm asking is that I've got a wii and it's very inaccurate and I don't want to spend more money on something that's going to give me similar problems.
Thanks in advance
#18
I spent 2 hours fannying around friday thinking what the hell have i wasted my money on! then decided to sellotape the camera to the top of my TV dead centre and tilt it slightly upwards and hey presto it is perfect!

I love it and as for he 2.5 metres I think that is a recommendation for best results however I am normally around 6ft from my TV and it works fine, am loving volleyball and table tennis on Sports Champions and Tumble is a great puzzler that is eerily accurate!!!

Go the whole hog, get a PS3, starter pack and extra wand and 2 navs, it will cost a few bob but well worth the investment for the kids and you will fing the qwhole family (just like the Wii) will eventually wanna play!

With regards to the overall space, based on my setup and living room, I would say at least 6 feet away from TV and a width availablity af about 6-7 feet also so you can properly get into the game. This is not the Wii and little flicks of the wrists will not get you very far, you need to throw yourself into it, the table tennis when you do is amazing (I used to play for real regularly so can vouch for that!)

It works well, I have a little over 1m space. Camera works best on top of the tv and as central as possible but it can take account of such discrepancies. For example the setup routine on Sports Champions, if you do smaller movements instead of shoulder, side and tummy - it responds then to smaller gestures. I would recommend it overall though as move works very well, the navi is less of a must-buy purchase as you can use the standard pad though it's more comfortable.
#20
Expired?

Link says Product no longer available.
#21
Regarding distance, it states 2.5m but I only have 1.67m & have no issues playing any of the Move games/ demos that have been released at launch.
#22
shame its expired, this low prices are tempting me!
#23
Like mentioned above, just adjust the position of your controller when calibrating. Don't hold it as high as shoulder height or a low as down by your side and it will react to movements in a smaller area. We're about 5-6ft from the TV when we play and it works perfectly.

One thing that has came to light regarding space issues is that we definitely won't have room for Kinect as there's no chance of having enough distance between ourselves and the TV to pick up our full bodies nevermind then being able to move around, although wasn't gonna get it until either a price drop or the first must have game came out so might have upgraded to a bigger house by then :P

1m is not going to work for SOME games. I can assure you of that.

@Shadowdogg. I have played every event on the Sports Champions game, and every demo available for Move, and I've had no issues what so ever. Works perfectly.

Tennis needs you inside the frame to see you properly. You will NOT be able to get inside that from 1meter away. Unless you managed to zoom out somehow?

Is your camera set to widescreen?

Yes it is slided to the blue.

Like I said before, everything I've played works perfectly fine at just 1m away.

Well, don't want the guy buying it then realising he cant. For me I can't. Do you have it above your tv/below your tv? Beside your tv?

For tennis for me it seems I would need to be around 2-3 meters away. Also using new PS eye if that is any thing.

What makes you think that ? as MS say 6 feet (1.8 meters) between you and your television for play space.

Kinect is motorised, the Motor in Kinect is able to move the unit’s head up and down, plus or minus 30 degrees, meaning that when placed at the optimal 3-6ft height it can still work regardless of your TV unit’s height.

The motor also operates the camera’s zoom function, which allows it to expand the play space.


So it should be fine.

It doesn't say anything about 6 feet on the kinect website, I don't think Microsoft have definitely stated how much space is required, well not officially anyway.

What do they mean by "other factors"?
That's on the US store, why haven't they put it on the UK/EU store?
EDIT, apologies, it is on the UK store.

OK firstly I take it you are not trying to draw me into any sort of argument here ?

It means that exactly like PS3 Move they cannot guarantee that is the exact distance, (it would be lawsuit paradise if either company set an exact distance) You have so many varying conditions in peoples homes.

In comparison Sonys Q and A have exactly the same thing but in even more detail -

MOVE
Q. What is the best position for a player to hold the PlayStation Move motion controller from the camera?
A: Players should calibrate in the location and position where they intend to play. The working range is 2 to 10 feet away from the camera, but the *ideal* range is 5 to 9 feet away from the camera, depending on the game.
