PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect Available for Pre-Order

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 17, 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:

You can pre-order PlayStation Move and receive 100 points toward our P.C. Richard & Son Video Game Rewards Program. Should you need additional motion and navigation controllers, we have those too!

Xbox Kinect: Releasing November 4, 2010

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:

The Kinect sensor is $149.99, which nets you 150 points in our Video Game Rewards Program. We also have a great Xbox 360/Kinect bundle available for those interested in these games, but don’t yet have an Xbox! The Xbox 360 4GB gaming console with Kinect is just $299.97.

PlayStation Move and Xbox Kinect will be the hot new holiday items this year, so preorder now and reserve yours today!

About the Video Game Rewards Program

The P.C. Richard & Son Video Game Rewards Program gives you points every time you purchase video game accessories or software. You will receive 1 point for every dollar spent on video games and video game accessories, and will get double rewards points for software pre-orders. For every 1000 points you earn, you’ll receive a $50 P.C. Richard & Son gift card! Want to know more? Click here!

5 Easy Games for Platinum PlayStation Trophies

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:

1. Burnout Paradise

This is an enjoyable game to get platinum in and will take anywhere from 20-30 hours of total play time. Make sure you have the EyeToy, since you’ll need it for the “Send a Mugshot or Smugshot” bronze trophy in order to take a picture for a friend. You’ll also need to get some trophies online and may need to team up with other trophy chasers to complete them.

Order the game now or view the Burnout Paradise trophy guide at ps3trophies.org

2. Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection

This is one of the most fun games to achieve platinum in if you once owned a Sega Genesis. Each Sega title includes a trophy that can be obtained pretty early in each session. There are a few trophies that are more difficult to get than others, especially the puzzle game ones, but this is a great game to hunt for trophies with a friend. No online connection is necessary for this trophy.

3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This game wins the award for highest quality game with an easy platinum. The story, characters and overall game play are really enjoyable, and will take you between 20-25 hours to complete over a minimum of 2 playthroughs. There are 2 online trophies, but are very simple and you’ll get them almost instantly.

Order the game now or view the Uncharted 2 trophy guide at ps3trophies.org

4. WWE: Legends of Wrestlemania

This is the easiest of the games on this list to get a platinum in, and will take you an easy 8-10 hours to complete. It’s also the game with the fewest trophies to accumulate! All trophies can be obtained across any difficulty level and you’ll only need to play through each of the 3 game modes once.

Order the game now or view the WWE Legends of Wrestlemania trophy guide at ps3trophies.org

5. Madden NFL 10

Our final platinum recommendation is another short one. You’ll only need 5-10 hours to complete this game, and won’t need to branch out into too many of the game modes to finish it.The ps3trophies.org guide is very efficient in showing you the fastest ways to get these achievements.

Order the game now or view the WWE Legends of Wrestlemania trophy guide at ps3trophies.org

That’s It!

Another advantage to this list is that most of these games have been out for a bit, and are therefore marked down. Plus, when you order this title from pcrichard.com or purchase it at our stores, you can earn points in our Video Game Rewards Program! How many PlayStation trophies do you have?

$10 of Every “MLB 10 The Show” Purchase Goes to Cancer Research

SCEA has teamed up with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Major League Baseball (MLB) to aid in the fight against cancer. Now through July 10, purchase MLB 10 The Show for PS3 in retail stores and SCEA will donate $10 of its proceeds to SU2C to fuel research centered on saving lives and quickly getting new treatments to patients. They are donating $10 for every copy sold, so now is a great time to purchase this title for your friends and family too!

The PlayStation-exclusive The Show series has been a huge hit for baseball fans. With this year’s MLB 10 The Show, you can enjoy a first-rate baseball experience with features and modes destined to quicken the heart, raise the stakes, and hurl you into a true MLB baseball experience with Home Run Derby, MLB All-Star Futures Game, Movie Maker, Catcher Mode and more. What’s more, you can include custom sounds into the game, like the P.C. Richard & Son whistle jingle for your Yankees strikeouts.

Sony Computer Entertainment America is doing a highly commendable service and we thank them for it. As they say on their site, “Not only will fans get the most authentic and realistic sports game around, but it will also allow them to join the ever-growing SU2C community to raise awareness and support for cancer research.” There are few valuable opportunities like this to benefit cancer research, especially in retail game sales. Make your purchase count by going to any P.C. Richard & Son retail location and purchasing MLB 10 The Show for PlayStation 3!

Kick Off with the FIFA World Cup Video Game!

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.

EA has done a great job with really capturing the culture and passion of the World Cup. You can enjoy all of the emotion and spectacle of the experience right on your couch with confetti canons, streamers, seat cards, flags and fireworks just as they are being presented in real life. The soundtrack is comprised of 28 tracks from 21 countries that “celebrates the cultural vibrancy of the first FIFA World Cup to be held in Africa.”

Good luck in the FIFA World Cup! Which teams are you rooting for?
