Two of the most highly-anticipated video game accessories are being released soon: the PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect. Nintendo Wii pioneered the motion technology that these two accessories take advantage of, but now you can enjoy this same entertainment on your other consoles!
PlayStation Move: Releasing September 19, 2010
PlayStation Move is an accessory that brings Wii-like motion control to your PlayStation 3. The PlayStation Move bundle comes with the move controller, PlayStation Eye Camera, and Sports Champions game disc. Sports Champions allows you to choose from one of 10 athletes from around the world to play a wide range of sports like disc golf, gladiator duel, beach volleyball, archery, table tennis and bocce. Check out this video below showing off the one-to-one motion technology that PlayStation Move offers:
Unlike Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Move motion technology, Kinect does not require you to be holding controllers for you to play games. Kinect is a sensor that recognizes your body and mirrors your movements in the game, making you the controller! This means that you can bowl or play ping pong all you want and not worry about a controller getting stuck in your TV screen. The video below explains this “controllerless” idea better than words ever could:
Halo: Reach hits stores September 14th and fans are counting down the days until they can unleash havoc on planet Reach once again. You can make that countdown much sweeter now!

This edition of Madden is expected to be the simplest, quickest and deepest one to date. Its new GameFlow system allows you to control the quarterback and execute an authentic NFL game plan one play at a time. You can customize and use your own offensive and defensive game plans, or execute the plays based on your favorite team’s real-life tendencies for an authentic game.
For me, a big draw of purchasing a PlayStation title is for the trophies. Trophies are PlayStation’s achievement system to show off how much you’ve completed in a game. Bronze trophies are for simple tasks, while silver and gold are a little more complicated. Platinum trophies are earned when you’ve collected every other trophy in the game, and are therefore most difficult to achieve. Obviously, some platinum trophies are more difficult to get than others. Here are 5 smooth-sailing platinum trophies you can earn:
Recently-released mixed martial arts game UFC Undisputed 2010 has been one of this year’s best in the fighting genre.

The FIFA World Cup is the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world. In just two days, hundreds of millions of people will be watching this international soccer tournament live from South Africa; but you can play it live now on your Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360!
This game gives you one of the most realistic World Cup experiences possible. You choose one of the 199 nations available and compete from qualification to a virtual reproduction of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, and play in any of the 10 official stadiums used in the actual tournament in South Africa. The game is completely enjoyable in single player mode, but you can also compete with local 4-player support (including co-op) and online with up to 8 players.
