Why in the blue **** does the PS3 move only work when it feels like it?? i'll explain, one minute im happily playing the demo of sports champions then switch to start the party and then the playstation move goes all screwy the cursor is all over the place (everywhere but the place im bloody pointing it!) now I have tried EVERYTHING!! re-calibrated it on the XMB bar menu, then diabled the magnetic sensor, got the perfect lighting conditions tried it all!! am I forgetting anything??...Yes I even thought the camera or controller was faulty so I went and got another one from game and low and behold the exact same problems......Please somone tell me what the **** is going on?? it works only when  it wants!!! this cant be right surely...I was so looking forward to this coming out now im just so ***** off.. .Im on the verge of getting a refund can anyone tell me have I forgotten to try anything??? thanks in advance.

This happened to me a few times on the demo, think i either quit the demo or turned the controller off/on. I've had it where both controller markers weren't even showing on screen but were stuck at the bottom right of the TV.

That is exactly the same problem im having, it cant be a faulty controller (as this is my second) it has to be a design flaw with the actually move controller. Refund methinks till Sony sort this issue out.

Yeah but i haven't had any problems on retail games though bud, except my 2nd controller that wouldn't calibrate which i fixed by turning the magnetic thingy off in the settinngs on the XMB (maybe try that?).

But that defeats the object, you need that on for accuracy or you might as well just use a wii controller.

could be the software that you're using. was start the party from the starter disc or from the psn store? i've been having no problems with move at all, and this is on sports champions, racquet sports and the shoot (all demos)

 

could be faulty software mate, try every possible factor before you give up

When I first came to use it, once I had set the troublesome camera angle fine it worked brilliantly. 

 

Although, when attempting to play The Shoot last night, I couldn't get it to work properly. Whether this was the camera angle or the controller, I do not know. The camera seemed to be positioned fine though. The cursor on the screen was all over the place. 

 

I tried it downstairs today with The Shoot and Beat Sketcher and both worked fine.

for me the move is a bag of old rubbish, to the point where i have completly given up with sony now because virtualy everything they bring out is knackered. please dont tell me about trying this, trying that to calibrate because ive tried it all. there are way too many people having problems with the move for it to be a calibration problem. sony if you are reading this if you are going to try and rip off another system(wii?) then do it properly, because the wii is a far, far superior experience with a motion controller than move, mainly because IT WORKS!!! i really do believe sont should recall the move, give refunds and put it right before putting it on sale again. as for me? i will be going back to xbox, may even try out kinnect as it cant be any worse than sonys effort.

actually sony were working on motion controllers before nintendo. i don't have a problem with move and it is one good piece of tech the beats the crap out of that garbage called kinect(i have tried one with a few games). i get absolute precision with move and unlike kinect i can play FPS games with it.

actually, there are only like ten people on this forum having problems, so NOT everyone is having problems. If you choose not to try what people are suggesting here, and 'giving up' then that is your problem, but don't bash the move or throw love to M$ cause your a little boy who can't work technology right. I have never had an issue with the ps move, EVER and bought it day 1. I also would like to issue the challange that you actually DON'T have move, but are an x box fanboy with no life, as to come on here and bash the move. You wanna talk about kinect, go to the forum for kinect, wanna call the move a wii rip off, well, other then you being an idiot, you have no knowledge, nor care to learn, about the PS Move and if its to hard for you to work, give it to an ADULT to help you. k? :Thumbs:

Hi,

 

Just to advise that I returned the move and exchanged for a replacement and it now works perfectly.  So glad we tried it before Christmas.

 

Thanks,

I'm sick and tired of people claiming that the people who bash the move for its problems are xbox fanyboys. Certainly not me!!! I got rid of my xbox ages ago. I'm a exclusive Ps3 owner, with countless of hours put into MAG, Killzone 2, Modnation, Little Big Planet, Buzz, Resistance 2, Sports Champions, The Fight etc.. etc.. etc...

 

The fight for me simply does not calibrate right.

 

Here's something interesting though I measured how far from the ground my playstation eye is and it's 6 feet 8 inches, that;s pretty high, especially since the tutorial says it should be shoulder height. I'm wondering if this is the culprit for all of my problems

 

if so I'm screwed when it comes to move because my TV is hung on the wall.
