After much research about which Motion Controller Console, I opted for the PS3 Move. This confused some of my frineds, since I am a Microsoft reseller and can get X-Box products much cheaper...
I went for the PS3 Move Starter Pack, which regrettably came with only a Demo Games Disk (although today a full Sports Champion Starter pack is available). Most of the games on the demo are geared towards very young kiddies, but nonetheless, the Sports Champions demo is great. The only issue being that the individual game demos are too short. Well, I ended up buying the Sports Champions Game and rented a few other PS3 Move games from a local store.
The PS3 Move is at this stage, definately the best motion control gaming console around and I believe will remain as such for some time. The downside, is that in order to get the most out of your games, you need several Motion Controllers, Navigators & other accessories, but the gaming options seem endless. Expensive, but worth it... The again, if I think about what I would spend on a night out, is it fair in stating that the PS3 is expensive? It has definately kept me home on several Friday nights, with friends coming over to 'Move' with me. I have also lost weight (4Kgs), playing the various sports games available (boxing, volley ball, table tennis and the like), so maybe it's not that expensive and maybe it will get you and the kids (if you have) off the couch.
The motion Controllers themselves are well designed, with all the buttons in easy to reach places. It does take a bit of getting used to in the more complex games, but most of the sports games are simple enough for young & old alike. To get the most out of the PS3 Move, it is best for each player to have 2x Motion Controllers, so my advise would be to get 4x Motion Controllers (if possible) or 2x Motion Controllers & 2x Navigators. If any more are required, simply tell your mate to buy there own & to bring them with when they visit. Its time to get PS3 Moving...
