Sony is really pushing Move titles this holiday season and with good reason because they really need to move more Move units (terrible joke of the day!). The holiday Move titles include Carnival Island, Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest, EyePet & Friends, and LitteBigPlanet 2: Special Edition.
Fun Holiday Fact: there are more than 80 move titles released or currently in development. This includes infamous 2, infamous: Festival of Blood, and
my game of the year a game, Everybody Dance.
Sony is releasing a couple bundles to get your Move started as well. One comes with Sports Champions and Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest and the Move controller and the PS Eye for $99. Then there is the PS3 Everybody Dance bundle, which comes with a PS3, Move controller and the PS Eye for $299.
And to avoid me writing any more bad jokes in this article, I’m just going to paste in what Sony would like you to know about the Move games being released this holiday season. Trust me, it’s better this way.
The Holiday PS Move titles:
Carnival Island invites you to take a trip to a magic carnival and experience the joy of classic family-friendly fun with more than 35 carnival games and attractions. Using the PS Move controller’s precise tracking technology, every toss, roll, throw, spin and slam is translated directly into the game for accurate, responsive and fun gameplay. By completing challenges, players can create their own cheering squad consisting of lovable pets throughout their experience. Players can also redeem tickets for amazing prizes, and have fun by interacting with fun house mirrors and upload snapshots of their experiences directly onto the XMB(TM) (XrossMediaBar) to send to a PlayStation®Network friend. In addition to its enchanting single-player mode, Carnival Island is the perfect ingredient for family game night, featuring a fantastically fun party mode, which supports up to four players at once, for play with one or two Move motion controllers.
