It’s finally here! The PlayStation Move, or Wii Remote for the PlayStation 3. Is it everything the Wii is not? It it revolutionary? Let’s find out using the final product, as well as some full version games and demos.
Halo: Reach is pretty incredible so far. I’m not even near done, thanks to school and the mediocre X-Men Origins: Wolverine had me finishing the game so I could send it back to where it came from. But I got to test out the core aspects of everything, so here’s my impression.
