Sony fails yet again with Playstation Move
Ok, besides the obvious fact that this appears to be a desperate attempt to cash in on the popularity of the Wii, Sony has also failed in other ways with Playstation Move.
It turns out that the PS3 Bluetooth module can only support up to seven wireless devices at a time, which will cause a problem for the Move controllers. You see, Playstation Move is not simply a single wand, there is also a second controller for your other hand, which can be used in certain games (think ‘nunchuck’ for the Wii). Now let’s quickly do the math here.
Let’s say I want to play a game with 3 of my friends, and said game supports Playstation Move and required both controllers. So let’s see, ( 4 friends times 2 controllers each = 8 bluetooth devices), ok…oh wait, Playstation only supports 7 bluetooth devices at a time, WTF.
Sony’s official response was this:
“Four PlayStation Move controllers can connect to a PS3 at one time (or two PlayStation Move Controllers and 2 PlayStation Move sub-controllers).”
So basically what they’re saying is you can only enjoy the full Playstation Move experience with one other friend at a time.
Good Job Sony.
