The PlayStation Move, Killing Peripherals One At A Time

August 24, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

My fellow Time Crisis fans, do you remember the PS1 and PS2 days of the Guncon? I sure do! I still remember how the original Guncon on the PS1 would allow you to step on your  regular controller so that your character could duck behind cover. I also remember having to store the damn thing and all of those annoying cords. Ditto with the Guncon 2 on the PS2. Oh wait! Same problem on the first PS3 Time Crisis. Only one problem…all three peripherals lacked many titles supporting it, meaning all that money you sent on it went to waste once you beat the games a couple of times over. However, things are about to change…The PlayStation Move is here and is ready to clean out your closets and save you some money by first killing off the Guncon!

During some Hands-ons with Time Crisis: Razing Storm at Gamescom 2010, Razing Storm Producer Norihiro Nishimura told that they originally had plans for a new Guncon..until the PS Move made them irrelevant.

“We thought about making a new, wireless one. We didn’t make it because Move was released at the same time. It was pointless to make something that can only be played with one of the games while Move can be played with all of them.”

So there you go… The PS Move saved you some of your hard earned money. Not only that, but your entertainment center thanks you too.

If you don’t know what Time Crisis: Razing Storm is all about, let me give you some details. It’s three games in one — Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Time Crisis 4, and Deadstorm Pirates all packed on one glorious Blu-Ray plus it even supports the Guncon 3 for those of you who want to get their ‘light gun’ on but don’t want to purchase the PS Move.
