Nice idea, unfortunately it's just an advert meaning a Move controller can act as a saber in game. Think about it, without a complete redesign, how would the Eye see the Move orb? Happy to be proved wrong though.

Pah! Never wanted to be Skywalker, always played as Vadar. And this 32 yr old still has a couple of replica Sabers lying around for those 'special' days. :Lol:

Thats just a real picture tho advertising Move and The Force Unleashed 2 saying its perfect for Lightsabre games ;) Which it will be :)

 

If an attachment comes out it will only maybe be a replica looking 'hilt' but then the move controller resembles one in shape anyway.

Yeah agreed. I really don't think this attachment is needed as (like you said) it does actually look like a lightsabre, only more complete without the random pieces of metal being visible.

I would agree with you but The Force Unleashed is due out at the end of the month so why 2011?

 

Unless it's a patch that's in the works.

If it's real, I'm going to smashing all kinds of sh** up in my house.

 

I don't think the controller is real, as in I don't think it will have a blade at very least, it could be just the grip though I suppose? Hell it could even be a plastic add on like the official gun attachment.

 

If the blade was included, lights and all, it would be very offputting to see that, and the one on screen (if there was one) and I'm sure that they'd be thinking about broken TV claims, or even injury.

 

Still, ANY lightsabre game at all is welcome in my house with Move compatibility.

That looks fantastic !! - got my interest straight away.  :D


If a new Star Wars MOVE controller is imminent, I'm not so sure the full blade may feature in it, as you'd end up smashing all kinds of things trying to swing it round in a medium sized room.


But I don't think that the blade would impede the controller working at all.

Yes the PSEYE needs to see the orb to judge distance from the lens

(bigger = closer / smaller = further away).

 

The same principles can be applied to a light saber 'beam'/ 'blade'.

 

Not only can the same bigger / smaller principle be used to judge distance from the lens (as the beam's dimensions would be known to the software), but the angle & apparent length of the beam would give the PS3 / MOVE software an additional way of calculating the saber's exact pitch / angle.

 

It's basic trig. and would help the already present magnetic & tilt sensors in judging the way the saber is being held.


Either way, beam or no beam, I'm sold.


P.S.I already own a full-size Darth Vader Force FX light saber

**Feel free to mock me, I don't mind :D

wait people actually think this is real?...wow....just......wow.....

 

its a badly photoshopped picture of the hasbro efx Obi-Wan Lightsaber with move controls on it

 

here's the amazon listing with the same picture

http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Lightsaber-Removable-Blade/dp/B003I86C94/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qi...

 

it's the same picture

 

also if it was legit I don't see Lucas letting Sony put a red blade on Obi-Wan's saber....strange though it may sound, it just wouldn't happen...

 

so as much i would like a move based star wars title.....this advert is a fake...

Badly Photoshopped? If it is (which it probably is) one it's a very good attempt!
