SCEA: Sorcery Proves PS Move’s superiority next to Kinect, Wii

SCEA: Sorcery Proves PS Move’s superiority next to Kinect, Wii

For many PlayStation Move owners, Sorcery is the game they’ve been waiting for.

Up until now, we haven’t seen to many games that make the PS Move “Relevant” However, according to what Sony Santa Monica creative director Brian Upton told IndustryGamers, Sorcery will drive home that fact. Furthermore, he says the actual gameplay – casting spells, mainly – will appeal to both hardcore and casual gamers. Said Upton:

“What we’re trying to do with this… it’s more hardcore than most motion games are. Most motion games are intended to be very, very casual. They have an almost Simon Says quality to them. We wanted something that would appeal to a more hardcore audience and would have depth and complexity.

That’s attention to detail that more serious gamers are interested in. It’s not, ‘Oh I can just button mash my way through.’ By actually mastering the system, I can feel like I’m a more powerful gamer. The fact that Move is so precise, it lets us create that very technical focused, skill-based motion control game.”

Upton goes on to say that Sorcery “does an excellent job of showing what makes Move a better and different system than other motion controls.” He also adds that he’s not sure such a game would work on either the Kinect or Wii, which is bound to incite plenty of argument, but perhaps he’s right. We’ll have to see how the game turns out; we’ve certainly been waiting for a while…it better be worth the wait!

    how is this game more hardcore then the others?
    that is EXACTLY why im so disappointed in it, it started out at E3 looking like a dark creepy game like LOTR meets harry pot head.
    now it looks like tellietubbies meets harry pot head!

    ” We wanted something that would appeal to a more hardcore audience and would have depth and complexity.”
    again, so why did you turn it from a awesome looking dark dungeon crawler to a crappy kids game!?
    im sorry but this looks the complete opposite to what fans want from the move!
    $ony keep tooting their horn that you can play core games with the move, but are yet to prove it ONCE!
    90% of the move games are crappy kids games ie playstation move heroes and medievil moves dedmunds quest, or this.
    and the final 10% which arent are really hard to control like KZ3 or SOCOM 4.
    even with the sharpshooter the move is just too sensitive to use for a FPS.
    people dont stand still like a statue, they shake and that causes the reticule on the screen to shake all over the place!
    in yet im yet to see a single game on the move worth its weight!

    looks crap!
    i was so excited when they announced it at E3 i said to myself finally $ony is releasing something for the move the core crowd, 99.999999999999999999% of their fanbase will love!
    then they show nothing for so long, we think its canned, then they finally bring it back with this harry pot head meets tellietubbies crap!?
    i thought this was suppose to go against the motion controls are locked to casual games stereotype, not prove it!
