Yes, Child of Eden On PlayStation 3 Will Have Move And 3D Support

By Ishaan . August 12, 2011 . 1:05pm

It took a while for the official word on this to get out, but the PlayStation 3 version of Child of Eden will indeed include support for PlayStation Move, according to Ubisoft and Q Entertainment. It will also support 3D displays.


Child of Eden is slated for a September 27th release on the PlayStation 3 in North America.

    I just got my copy for 360. It’s very cheap right now… and it looks like it will also be launching for a very cheap price on the PS3. Too bad, I guess Ubisoft noticed that this kind of game is a difficult sell at full price.

    I remember this game was originally proposed to be downloadable. That might explain why it’s apparently so short.

      Its should have been a $30 DL title. No matter how good it looks its still  obviously shallow.

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        I agree with the $30 dollar price tag. And it doesn’t look like it would last more than a few hours of gameplay. Any more than $30 is a crime.

        I will say, it does look trippy though.

        Well, on Ubisoft’s defense, looks like they eventually noticed: the PS3 version’s RRP is £20 (and many online stores are already pre-selling it for £15, including a free T-shirt!). It can’t get much lower than that.

  • I think this is literally the only game where I’d really want 3D and Move with.

    However, I will be having neither. (still gonna get the game though)

    Child of Eden was certainly…an experience normally. It’d probably make you high in 3D or something, that many colours presented as such can’t be good for people.

    It doesn’t surprise me.  This game came out on 360 with Kinect support, so it would make sense the PS3 version would have Move support.  I’m going to get this game whenever I have the chance.

  • Child of Eden or Totori. Hmm… Same price, and room for only one….

    • SerendipityX

      Go with Totori…Child of Eden is good but it should have been downloadable for such a short game.

      Edit: My 100th comment WOO! 8D

    • Same price as Totori in America? Perhaps import from Zavvi or other European import retailers, the game is budget priced here.

  • Oh GOD now I REALLY want a 3D TV >.>

  • PrinceHeir

    this might get me a Move along with No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise ^^

    might look into it :)

    Wait, why support for 3D on PS3 but not 360, I am confused.

    • malek86

      Two reasons:

      1) Right now the 360 can only do side-to-side 3D, the one which works at halved resolution. Not a great idea, albeit not bad either (this is how 3D broadcast works too, since it requires less bandwidth). This game will probably have full 3D instead.

      2) Microsoft doesn’t care much about 3D (since it’s not their line of business), whereas Sony makes money by selling 3DTVs and 3D BR players, so they encourage many developers to put the option in, as a way to make people want to buy into the trend.

      • Paul Chinn

        I’m not quite sure how either of those have anything to do with why the 360 version. 

        Both reasons would only really apply to a Microsoft developed/published game that went multiplatform. CoE is don’t by Ubisoft however, and the decision is entirely up to them which leaves me with my original question.

        • malek86

          Almost nobody who only owns a 360 really gives a crap about 3D. So they didn’t see the point in spending money to put the option in.

          On the other hand, there are at least a few PS3 owners who like 3D, so it’s a good idea for them to add 3D because it might increase sales by a decent amount, especially for a game that had previously fared poorly at retail so they’ll need all the help they can get.
