E3 2010: We play The Fight: Lights Out with PlayStation Move

Senior Editor Mikel Reparaz and I got our introduction to Move at Sony's booth on the E3 show floor last week. The Fight: Lights Out is a simple boxing game which uses two Move controllers and - that's right, believe it or not - your own punches. The game itself is very tech demoey, but we didn't hate Move's motion tracking... after more calibration than we'd prefer to endure, it sort of worked. See for yourself how foolish we looked:

    That is, in fact, some good videography Tyler.

    The whole point of Move was to be a high def RESPONSIVE Wii... The lag on this demo was absolutely terrible and at this point doesn't perform any better. Im not sure if they really even tried to improve on the current tech or if they just wanted to copy what Nintendo has already done. I know its already outdated but don't release something before it works well. The Kinect is by no means great but at least the tracking and lag isn't an issue. If they can make some decent games(probably not though) it will have a chance at being something that is actually cool. It is a stretch but at least the tech is there to make it a possibility

    @TheWebSwinger Glad someone finally pointed out the "glowing ball" comment! It was meant as a joke, but maybe I was too straight faced? :P

    @Jordo141 The cameraman wasn't a GR staffer, but an LA freelancer we hired. He was fantastic!
  • zanthox - June 22, 2010 4:44 p.m.

    haha, nice video guys.
  • presc1ence - June 22, 2010 3:23 p.m.

    so you need four controllers?for two people to play? Lemme guess sony woudl sell the at somewhere between £30 and £50??? Nice one $$$ony Yeah 'move' is sooooo the suckiest of the motion crap bandwagon!
  • Cyberninja - June 22, 2010 2:32 p.m.

    you guys need to make a news show it would easyly be better then fox news
  • Jordo141 - June 22, 2010 1:25 p.m.

    Who was your cameraman? Just curious
  • sleepy92ismypsn - June 22, 2010 9:25 a.m.

    I think Move has better tech than kinect but one thing both are lacking is great games to use them with. So until I see that the move has some more interesting looking games for it i'm not biting sony.
  • KaiokenKid - June 22, 2010 9:13 a.m.

    Glad to hear it atleast worked.
  • xDxP - June 22, 2010 8:52 a.m.

    Although I must say that that was some outstanding videography.
  • xDxP - June 22, 2010 8:46 a.m.

    Haha seems like you guys couldn't tell the truth in the video because of the big guy ready to really fight you.
  • Tronto13 - June 22, 2010 8:01 a.m.

    looks like a good idea but from the shots of the screen your opponent seems to just tame all your punches. Seems a little boring.... Also it uses 2 ball controllers so to be able to play this game on release not only do you need to buy the game you have to spend £120 on 2 ball controllers (Amazon are selling them for £60 each) Ripoff much??
  • foxyexplosion - June 22, 2010 7:13 a.m.

    Pretty cool system but do you think kinect could do better or fare worse with the same concept? Also would the delay make it impossible for legitimate 1v1 punchouts with friends? I know I could fight in real life but thats why I play video games, that and Im very sure I have a glass jaw.
  • - June 22, 2010 6:14 a.m.

    I already have a wii, which has all the motion control games I want. So Im going to pass on move to by Natal which does something that I cannot already do =)
  • garfunkling - June 22, 2010 6:08 a.m.

    wow. that delay. you could go to the bathroom and come back in time.
  • T3xH - June 22, 2010 3:55 a.m.

    looks pretty bad. I hope that they can fix it before it is released
  • TheWebSwinger - June 22, 2010 3:40 a.m.

    The first time I touched a glowing ball involved ET, some roofies, and a whooole lotta acid. Come to think of it, "ET" might've been the homeless guy behind 7-11...
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - June 22, 2010 3:28 a.m.

    @Romination Hey now, we're some of the biggest motion control skeptics there are, and while we'd probably never buy this game, we weren't lying about the controls feeling responsive. Look more carefully, though the character is punching more slowly than me, he is punching in the same direction I am. :P We don't lie.
