Haven’t picked up the Move yet — wish they’d had a better discount for those who already own an Eye. This just might be a game that helps tip the balance — looks like a blast!

Not really my cup of tea however this game keeps looking better and better, I think you can call me a convert!

    We’ll have a video up soon showing how it all works together. The Move controller will be used in a variety of ways, the Nav controller (of DS3 if you’re so inclined) will be used to uh, navigate your favorite character =)

    You can also check out the recent videos from CES here and on GameSpot!

Wow, earlier than expected. I’ll have to get a navigation controller for this and Sorcery.

Sony,

Do you realize this game is gonna kill Tomb Raider Trilogy if both come out the same day?

LOL i knew it , this is why Motorstorm Apocalypse got an April released date right ? anyways im getting both games but come on guys couldnt you done a MSA simultaneous worldwide release ? europe is getting the game a month earlier than us , oh well , first party line up these months is crazy LBP 2, Killzone 3 , Heroes on the Move ( oops i like it better ) , Motorstorm Apocalypse in the first months of the year , very very good , sounds like a holidays line up to me lol

+ vanwinkle on January 14th, 2011 at 10:29 am said:

I’ll be getting it. Now why doesn’t Sony focus on making some more Move-exclusive games? It’s a great piece of hardware that can’t show its full potential if it’s only an option for games that can also use a Dualshock. The only titles announced for this year are this and Sorcery (which we know next to nothing about and for which there’s been no new information since E3). You can’t help but wonder how much more successful Move would be if Sony gave it more of their time and attention. I don’t want to make it where they only do Move-exclusive titles but throw us some more bones here.

+ Brook-O_C on January 14th, 2011 at 10:41 am said:

Is there an actual storyline to this game or is it just a big collection of minigames? Also, way too many PS3 exclusives this year for me to handle (that’s not a complaint, btw)

    Great question. There’s actually a full story surrounding the game and why they’re all together (more on that later).

Just pre orered this and Team ICO collection! God im gonna be so broke this year, so many games to buy! Still hopinf FF Versus 13 is PS3 exclusive!

+ scorpio808 on January 14th, 2011 at 10:54 am said:

This is definately on my list to get this year. I love the concept of all the characters on one game. Hey SONY, why not try the Helgast versus the Chimera…

question…. where is the box art for the game? is there one incoming that we can see?

    Incoming! Check back in a few weeks.

+ ESIASON7 on January 14th, 2011 at 11:12 am said:

SONY i just wanted to mention this: could you spread out the date just little more next time? Move Heroes is 1 week before Team ICO Collection and some people still get paid every other week. Just a thought. I pre ordered both already though. Keep the games coming!

Please stop making games. Way too many these days.

Just pre-ordered from Amazon! PlayStation Move Heroes is the main reason I bought the Move bundle,extra controller, and two navigation controllers. March 22nd can’t come soon enough! I hope it won’t suffer any delays.

+ ckpotc on January 14th, 2011 at 11:24 am said:

I can’t wait to get this game even though I never played a game with any of these characters.

+ TomHoang on January 14th, 2011 at 11:24 am said:

@Lugia_EX

The TR Trilogy is a Square Enix release, not a Sony release. So I don’t think Sony really cares too much.

+ G-Force08 on January 14th, 2011 at 11:25 am said:

Awesome! This will be a great game for my PS Move for sure! I will get this game no doubt! This year is robbing me, but at least I’ll have fun playing all these great games while being broke! =p

Great job guys. :)

Will this be $39.99 like other MOVE games?

+ ACDarkKnight on January 14th, 2011 at 11:30 am said:

Wasn’t this game called Heroes on the Move? Just wondering when the name changed. Looks great, I’m with BigPoppaB though, is this a 39.99 Move title?

    It was the working title. We revealed the official name late last year.

Scratch that, Gamestop.com is listing it at $39.99. Mystery solved!

+ Yur_EpitaphAisle on January 14th, 2011 at 11:44 am said:

As excited for this game as I am. There is a new problem…well, its actually quite old…it all started when I went to post a forum topic about gaming in 3D and how awesome it is on my Sony Bravia with the new Bravia Engine 3.

The forum is down…I cant access the TrendMicro Security page via my PS3…it says “Please click the button below to return to the previous page.”…kinda like when your PC has a virus and you are prevented from accessing the solutions to cure it. What if I need to activate my Trend Micro Secuirty app…I cant do that now.

SCEA, I think its time to admit whats been going on for years now…there IS a virus on the PS3 systems. Your message system CAN be ‘hijaked’ thru faking a message header. The PSN is NOT as safe as you claim.

motion controller only or navigation controller too?

    + Cristian Cardona on January 14th, 2011 at 12:14 pm said:

    Move controller required. You can use the DualShock 3 controller, but the Nav provides the optimal experience.


26

+ LordRaoh on January 14th, 2011 at 11:50 am said:

I would have been more interested if it had a larger list of Playstation mascots..

playing as nathan drake, nathan hale, capelli, snake, kratos, a customized sackboy, etc..

that I would be pumped for. this seems a bit niche to me..

It originally had a smash bros feel to it but then i noticed that all the characters were mentioned. missed opportunity if you ask me.


27

+ dragonmagician on January 14th, 2011 at 11:51 am said:

Now we just need release dates for Sorcery and ICO Collection.

@ 15 ESIASON7

LOL, your asking too much, sony released Gran Turismo 5 on december 24th after most of the holiday shopping was done.

japanese titles translated into american released on the same day as other major releases.

marketing and release dates are just something sony does not do.

Please tell me this wont be some mini game crap. cause i wont spend $40 on a mini game. im hoping this is an all out action adventure game.

+ KazeEternal on January 14th, 2011 at 12:36 pm said:

Just because R&C are in this and the price tag is a sweet spot I’ve decided to put the pre-order down. However we need more details, I feel like I know next to nothing about this game other than it supports the Move, has PlayStation Characters, and that there was some work getting Sly to mix and match with the other characters due to some aesthetic choices.


36

+ StargamerX on January 14th, 2011 at 12:36 pm said:

@33: I’m curious as well. Do all of the characters have their original voices? Plus, are there cutscenes?

If there was a Move bundle that came with this instead of Sports Champions, that would definitely be the final nudge to convince me to pick one up. Just saying…

Do we HAVE to own PlayStation Move in order to play the game, or is it only “highly suggested”?

    + Cristian Cardona on January 14th, 2011 at 1:27 pm said:

    It’s absolutely required. The only option is whether or not you use the Nav controller of DualShock 3 controller to maneuver the characters.

+ plaztiksyke on January 14th, 2011 at 1:14 pm said:

Does the game render in 1080p natively when in 2D mode?

Who is composing/performing the music?

Will the music and audio assets be HD quality?

Aside from Heavy Rain, I was disappointed by the graphical and audio quality of the Move games to date. It’s like a 2-year step backward. Hopefully this one brings things back up to the HD audio/video quality what we have come to expect from PS3 exclusive titles.

I have my Move and navigation controllers ready. I’m getting this game day 1. I just wish the Sly pre order costume was more robotic like the other 2.

So far so good with keeping all these PS3 exclusive release dates spaced out. I have LBP2 for January, Killzone 3 for February, Playstation Move heroes and Team Ico Collection for March and Motorstorm Apocalypse for April. It would be perfect if Socom 4 came out in may, inFAMOUS 2 in June, Sorcery in July, Twisted Metal in August, Resistance 3 in September, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One in October, Uncharted 3 in November and The Last Guardian in December.

Thank you so much SCE for getting all your developers to make us plenty of amazing games to play in 2011.

OMG you guys are KILLING me! Of course I have to snag this as a Move enhanced platformer featuring some of my favorite characters is a no brainer. I’ve already picked up DCUO (great game btw) then LBP2 and Mass Effect 2 next week followed by Dead Space 2 and Two Worlds 2 the week after… then Killzone 3 in February, this piece of awesome in March as well as hopefully Sorcery and then did I hear Motostorm Apocalypse in April?!?!? Sooooo many amazing games and such fantastic exclusives… PS3 just went into juggernaut mode.
