Sony Canada was super nice to send us a surprise package this morning, it’s the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter, or Sharpshooter as I call it. This reminds me of the Super Scope, for all those old enough to remember. Here’s a quick picture to remind all those children of the 90’s or those still playing games in the 90’s at least ;)
While certainly bad ass back in the day, it was only playable with a handful of titles and never came close to matching what the original NES’ Zapper did. Remember that light gun?
Alright enough with the trip down memory lane. Let’s take a look at what Sony sent us this morning. Behold the Sharpshooter!
Why didn’t I put a navigation controller in the lower portion? I have no clue, I just saw the Move controller beside my PS3 and so I grabbed it, put it into the Sharpshooter and took some pictures. I like doing things half-assed apparently. If you visited the site at all yesterday you can testify to that ;)
Included with the Sharpshooter are three sets of decals which can be used to nerdify your Sharpshooter, as if you really needed to do that. I’ll take a picture later showing what I look like actually playing with this thing. Let’s just say, it’s not pretty.
There are some pretty cool features on this bad boy though. It has several shooting modes, which is handy, all the buttons are located around the trigger for easy access with your thumb, and the pump action grip as Sony calls it is bloody awesome. All that remains now is a game. The gun is compatible with Killzone 3, SOCOM 4, Time Crisis: Razing Storm, and Dead Space: Extraction. Considering I don’t own the two games that are already out, and the other two get released shortly I can’t test it out. That’s just the news you were hoping for, I know. Fear not though, I’ll be using this gun to review Killzone 3 which should arrive early next week. So be sure to look forward to that, and the picture ;)
If any of you have picked up the Sharpshooter, what are your impressions of it?
