5.0 out of 5 stars Great control, got it with the bundle, September 17, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Playstation Move Motion Controller (Video Game)
I already have a PS3, so I bought the bundle with the Eye, game, and controller, then I bought this controller for 2 player and more 1 player versatility. So far, I have had a lot of fun with the system. The camera and controller are very easy, just plug and play. You calibrate the controller at the start of each game, which basically entails pointing the controller at the Eye and hitting a button. Not difficult.

The game play is fun and intuitive, especailly when compared with the Wii remote, which was pretty cool for its time (I mean, they just took a Game Cube and made a new controller for it. I certainly didn't guess it would sell as many as it did). The Move just takes it to a new level. It's not shaky like the Wii, and you actually have to move to make it move around the screen. If you've ever played Boxing on Wii, you will have noticed that you don't actually have to punch, just flick your wrists. With the Move, you have to actually move around.

Anyway, I like the new controller and am glad I bought 2 to start with. I may buy more later, as the games are developed, but this is a lot of fun out of the box. One more thing: the glowing, color changing, ping pong ball looking thing on the end of the controller is not hard plastic, but a rubberized material, like silicone. So, if you whack it into things, it won't break or anything. Seems like a good design.

It's obvious you've not used the Wii-mote with Motion plus, because if you had then you would realize that it's just as accurate. I've now used the move controller, and it's not anymore sensitive than the combination wii-mote/motion plus. You should probably do your own research before making claims.

Of course, if there were more well known games that supported the gyro add on for the wiimote, there would be more of a chance that people would experience it. Why should the reviewer be faulted for not playing with the WM+? It's personal experience and opinion. Also, there's no WM+ boxing game yet that requires you to use two remotes. Plus, only a bare few have anything good with the WM+

And support for the WM+ is looking a little thin, compared the the confirmed Move library, less the multiplatform titles; the Move games outnumber all of the WM+ supported games now.

Such a shame though, WM+ is good stuff, but the way the Wii is built, paints Nintendo into a corner.

However, I myself don't regret buying WM+, and I definitely will won't regret buying Move either.
