PlayStation Move Developer Diary: The Shoot for PS3

Ray Khalastchi's Avatar Posted by Associate Producer, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe

The Shoot is a title exclusive to PlayStation Move, an arcade shooter where you are an action hero and the PlayStation Move motion controller is your gun. Listen to the director and shoot your way through five different spoofs of classic B-Movie themes: the Wild West, undersea monsters, haunted house, mobsters and a robot invasion. Shoot through parts of the highly destructible set to see what they’re really made of.

You can use the PlayStation Move to activate special powers. Shoot into the ground to generate a shockwave and destroy all your enemies in one blast, spin on the spot to slow time with Showtime, and fire in the air to activate your all-powerful rampage gun. No more need for buttons or foot pedals — just duck behind cover and dodge projectiles, using the PlayStation Move. You can even co-star with a friend in your own action movies!

Oh, and don’t forget about Challenges. We’ve taken our movie themes and applied them to motion games like underwater baseball and haunted house bowling, and a few more surprises…

Putting The Shoot together has been a brilliant experience for me and the team at Cohort Studios. The PlayStation Move has been a joy to work with from day one, giving us amazing accuracy and opening new opportunities to take the shooter genre forward in the game’s design. Putting the PlayStation Move and the PlayStation 3 together, we’ve created a fast-paced, fun-filled action title that wouldn’t be possible with traditional controls or even a lightgun. Check out the video to get a taste of what The Shoot has in store for you.

We really hope you enjoy the game when it comes out around the launch of the PlayStation Move. Looking forward to seeing all your high scores!

I think this is the one title in the bunch that I really want to see more on. I’ve had hands on with pretty much everything but The Shoot and Lights Out, and I’m intrigued.

While some of the above posters are quick with the disparaging remarks, I’m pretty happy we’ll have some more arcade-centric games that are relatively easy to pick up for even the most casual gamer. I mean, my parents could come over and I’d tell the rules…shoot stuff. How hard is that to wrap your head around?

It looks fantastic and I’m really impressed with the environmental damage. There was plenty going on in the screen and THAT is not the norm in most of these rail shooters. The older ones always had those static background with almost shooting gallery styled enemies.

The way I see it the launch of PS move will contain both wii ripoffs and outstanding original games
the key is to strike a good balance so people see good more than the bad.
Hopefully the second generation of move games only improves the experience and won’t have to fix it.

I know people who visit the PSblog aren’t exactly the target, but none of these have done anything for me so far. I see so much potential in this, but not in the software so far.

I still think it should have had an analogue stick on it, so you just just play normally and then use the gun bit when required. For something like Uncharted when you’re not aiming the whole time that would have been much better, only pointing when you’re holding L1.
