imageNext spring there will be a PlayStation 3 motion controller and Sony is making a new Ape Escape game for it.


Awesome. I’m can’t wait to use the wand as a net to capture monkeys.


Here’s the first list of motion control games Sony is working on:

Ape Escape (temporary name)
Echochrome: Reality Theory (temporary name)
Eccentric Slider (temporary name)
Sing and Draw (temporary name)
Champions of Time (temporary name)
Motion Party (temporary name)
The Shoot (temporary name)
Tower (temporary name)

In addition to those, Sony is also updating some of their games, mostly PlayStation Network titles, to support the controller. It’s unclear if these updates will be free or released as paid DLC.

Hustler Kings
High Velocity Bowling

    None of those even sound remotely interesting.

    “Tower”. Best title ever.

      Never thought ‘Building’ would ever get a sequel!

    Wand to catch saru, I’m in :)

    Sigh. I guess I just see waggle as a step of further separating people from reality.

    Why go bowling or shooting when you can do it at home with a waggle wand?

    Video games are an escape from reality, true, but I think they are best when they offer the chance to do something you can’t do in reality. Like race a car, or shoot Nazis, or save a princess.

    But when they seem to be at the expense of people going out and doing that activity in real life, they’re bad. Even something like Solitaire has probably had a huge impact on people’s shuffling skills.

      I think that ‘waggle’ games are an OK alternative. If anything, it might get people to actually want to try to bowl, for example, at a real bowling alley. It’s like people playing Rock Band and wanting to learn how to play real instruments.

      That’s a pretty good joke post. I LOLed.

    Should Sega decide to follow suit someday and create a follow-up to Sega Superstars, I’m good as sold.
