PlayStation Move Sydney launch party

Gran Turismo 5 in 3D, Time Crisis: Raising Storm, Kung-Fu Rider & more

  • Last night, the Australian gaming press were treated to a lavish PlayStation Move party at Waterloo, Sydney. Games at the event included Time Crisis: Raising Storm, Kung-Fu Rider, Sports Champions and the RTS game R.U.S.E.

    Some non-Move PS3 games also made an appearance, including Gran Turismo 5 in 3D.

  • Punters goggle at some of Sony's new eye candy.

  • The PlayStation Move is attempting to provide the best of both worlds, with games that appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers.

  • Start the Party: one of the PlayStation Move's family-friendly casual games.

  • As its name implies, Singstar Dance for PlayStation Move allows you to sing and dance at the same time. Woot.

  • SOCOM 4: for those who desire a 'grittier' Move experience. The game is compatible with the PlayStation Move shooting attachment; an add-on peripheral that looks like a ray gun.

  • In addition to Move games, punters got to try their hands at some regular PS3 titles, including Gran Turismo 5 -- in glorious 3D.

  • The addition of silly glasses failed to make us look any less badass.

  • Tch. In our day, it was all one-button joysticks. [[xref:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Cars|Super Cars]] FTW!

  • The air traffic control jokes never get old.

  • As is customary at these events, a DJ was paid to be pointedly ignored by the non-dancing crowd.

  • ...Nice afro though.

  • GamePro's Spandas Lui with Official Xbox Magazine's Nic Healey.

  • Gaming prowess was increasingly compromised by the endless flow of alcoholic beverages.

  • Drink driving isn't big, hard or clever.

  • Strike a pose!

  • Strike a pose 2: Electric Boogaloo. [Didn't I fire you yesterday? -- Ed.]

  • Taking a leaf from Microsoft's E3 press conference, Sony announced free Move packs for everyone who attended the event.

  • The kids boogie on down.

  • The PlayStation Move hits stores shelves on 17 September, with several different bundles to choose from.

    The PlayStation Move solo unit consists of the motion controller only. It retails for $69.99. This is aimed at people who already own a PlayStation Eye camera.

    The PlayStation Move Starter Pack retails for $99.95. The Starter Pack contains one PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Eye camera and a demo disc featuring eight Move games. The demo disc also comes with an instructional video on how to set up PlayStation Move.

    For some games, you will also need to buy a PlayStation Move navigation controller, which retails for $49.95. Sony has also promised to release special game bundles in the future. These will come with a motion controller and a specific Move game.
