Sony Suffers Embarrassing Moment With Playstation Move Demo attended the Sony Move Demo Event at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston, MA on March 25th, 2010 from 5pm to 8pm. Arriving at 1:45, there were 20 people in line ahead. 150 people would be allowed in, so glad I arrived early.

Sony opened the event at 4:45 or so and the crowd filed in. There were 5 demo units, ranging from a gladiator fighting game, drawing of simple shapes, and a game that can only be described as a girl racing down hills on a deskchair. At least the physics were 'moving'.

The funniest thing is that the demo unit failed. The staff attempted to recalibrate the unit by exiting and reentering the game. Then when all hope was lost (amid much grinning) changed the batteries, and there was much rejoicing! All in all Sony's Move looks like it has potential. Let's just hope it doesn't go the same route as the Wii.

Hey there gamers. Article editor/writer Mikallen here. I'm sorry that those of you who read this article took it more seriously than we intended. It was supposed to be satirical, but I guess my comedic writing needs work, haha. Just a little gamer humor guys, no need to get so hostile. We know accidents happen. Besides, it would be extremely amateur of us to completely write off a demo because of a simple mechanical issue. We truly think that the Move has potential, but found the little mess-up just too funny not to post.

I was there and there wasn't any notable kinks other then a dead battery. Wasn't a big deal at all. It moved and worked like a dream.

I was at the conference and the Move ran like a gem. The only reason this article is titles as such is to attract hits for this website. Sensationalist "journalism" at it's finest.
