The war of video games developpers (Part 1)

Last week, we saw the new Nintendo revolution with the Wii U. This week, we are going to linger on the two other video games tenors: Sony and Microsoft.

In a first part, I’ll be attached to show you, the new technologies created by Sony to conquer the video games market.

Sony tried at the end of 2010 to conquer this market with an all new way to play video games, it’s the beginning of Playstation Move.

The PlayStation Move is an add-on peripheral on PlayStation 3, which acts as a motion controller. It’s also named PS Move, and it’s distributed since the 15th of September 2010 in Europe, the 17th of September in North America and then the 21st of October in Japan.

Its first name was usually Playstation Motion Controller, when it was revealed. But its commercial name was announced as the Playstation Move during the Game Developers Conference the 11th of March 2010. Some rumors announced it as Gem or Arc

The system is composed by:
– The PlayStation Eye: a new camera, replacing the EyeToy, which  track the wand’s position,
– A handheld motion controller wand, including  inertial sensors in the wand to detect its motion,
– A supplementary PlayStation Move navigation controller,
– An optional PlayStation Move charging station.
Up to four Move controllers can be used at once (four Move motion controllers, or two Move motion controllers and two Move navigation controllers).
The PlayStation Move won the 2010 Popular Science Award for “Most immersive game controller”.
There are a large range of video games which allow to play with the PS Move, such as Kill zone 3, Sports Champions, and updates of Heavy Rain Move Edition, RUSE or Dead Space Extraction.
But Sony wants to conquer the entire Video games market, including the handled game console market, which was for a long long time under the control of Nintendo with the range of GameBoy.
We already knew the PSP, the first Sony handled game console, produces to stop the Nintendo DS. Now, we know the next generation of Sony handles game console, secretly names Next Generation Portable, but mostly known as the PlayStation Vita!
It was presented for the first time during the E3 Conference, one of the most important Video Games Salon. This new portable will be sold at the end of 2011, for Christmas time all around the world. It will be a revolution to play like in front of our TVs!
But now, it’s time to look on Microsoft’s side…

The Nintendo Wii U

It should be one of the most expected announcements of the E3, the most important video games show in the world, the new Nintendo game console, secretly named Coffee Project.

The main novelty of this console comes from… the game controller. Now it will be a touchscreen tablet.

An all new Pad

The TVscreen is no longer alone. The game controller/tablet allows a synchronized display with the Wii U box, which is directly connected to your TV.

So now, you can turn off your TV or change channel,  but still playing your games on the tablet.

The Wii U offer the possibility to get a zoomed image directly on the tablet screen, and more new innovator options promising a lot of surprise. It’s now to the developers to make us dream !

The Wii U allows you to play with friends and family thanks to the 5 game controllers (four on TV, and one directly on the tablet. Furthermore, the new game console will be compatible with the Wiimote and the Balance Board

The front camera et the microphone allows you to communicate with other connected users. A software which could be competitor of Skype, acquired by Microsoft. But for the moment, only few information are given… Nintendo keeps the secret.

The classical buttons are still present (A, B, X and Y) thus the buttons (L, R, ZL, ZR) but also the directional cross and the analogical sticks.


Nintendo goes to HD

Wii U has an 1080p, 1080i, 720p and 480i HD screen. The Nintendo game console works under IBM power multi-core processor, which allows to be as realistic as the PS3 Sony and the XBOX360 Microsoft

Wii U will get Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to get an Internet and a Nintendo Network access.

The line-up is still huge with a lot of great games such as  Batman Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed, Dirt and Darksiders II
