    I just started using the Sharpshooter and I thought of an idea to make it easier to turn the view as you play. Instead of using the shooter, have some glasses or a head band that the Move camera could track. That way if u need to turn in the game, you turn your head in the direction to view. That would give you the ability to turn and aim in 2 different directions.

    G4 knows KINECT sucks so they being their usual selves Xbox 360 fanboys. PlayStation Sharp Shooter is only for PS3 and by Sony.

    I have both and have to say the sharp shooter is well thought out and a steal at that price, but holy-crap, it's hard to adjust to it and the first fifteen minutes I was ready to break something. My biggest issue is I'd swear the reticule is drifting, especially when you try to calibrate it. Notice that the faster you calibrate the less drift, but then it's off because you didn't take your time. Hoping this will be addressed through firmware updates for the Move or in game if it's KZ3 causing the issue (think it's Move). Anyhow, thinking this would put you at a dissadvantage in multiplayer action, but hope folks prove me wrong as it adds a cool aspect to gameplay.

    I have the smaller gun, and I think the bigger one looks fantastic. I love the peripherals, but I don't like the Move as a pointer. The cursor often drifts and ends up unaligned. Maybe its just me though.

    The Sharpshooter IS the killer app for the move imo and 40$ is not bad at all considering the fact that it is sold and crafted well, right handed or left it is slick and i like where the re mapped buttons are and i love the fact that you can reload by sliding back and forth the under barrel part like you where reloading a shotgun. Clearly not a toy for kids but rather a toy for adults who like to be a kid now and then on ps3's..not to mention every game for it is M rated i believe. And i am sure more game will use it but it just came out.

    I don't have a move yet but I am definitely going to get one when "Child Of Eden" comes out, and I'm not sure if I should go with the small one or the big one...
