eStarland: Playstation Move Sharp Shooter (PS3)

Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about my second purchase in eStarland, game store video game that sends the USA through to Brazil. This time I decided to purchase an accessory, the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter do Playstation 3 (PS3). In this official accessory you attach a Playstation Move Motion Controller and an Playstation Move Navigation Controller to have an intuitive and immersive shooter games. Unlike accessories unofficial buttons Playstation Move Sharp Shooter are connected digitally to Playstation Move Motion Controller in other words, no mechanical triggers or buttons inaccessible.

The Playstation Move Navigation Controller is only attached to the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter, so that the directional buttons are all accessible in normal use of the accessory, in other words, with left hand (if you're right or left handed) holding the front of metalhadora. The Playstation Move Motion Controller besides being embedded in the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter, is also connected digitally through the USB port on your base. With this buttons Playstation Move Sharp Shooter are mapped digitally to the Playstation Move Motion Controller. The button moves is discovered in Playstation Move Motion Controller, but it takes effort to punch it, because just below the trigger Playstation Move Sharp Shooter There is a button that moves can be easily triggered with the middle finger, while the index finger is on the trigger. There is also a lock button for Move, If you do not want to trigger it by accident. On the sides of the two sides are square and triangle buttons, as well within reach of the index finger of the right hand (or left, if you're left-handed). The circle and X buttons are usually triggered by Playstation Move Navigation Controller. There are also a key to adjust how many shots the gun must shoot each time the trigger is pressed (one to three). Underneath where would comb the machine gun is a button RL, used to reload the gun. Another option for recharging (at least in Killzone 3) is to pull the front (as triggering) of Playstation Move Sharp Shooter, as this mechanically actuates the trigger Playstation Move Motion Controller. On Killzone 3 there is still the option to reload the gun quickly raised, imitating the movement of the real exchange comb, after all the Playstation Move Motion Controller was made for it. The Start and Select are also mechanically actuated through Playstation Move Sharp Shooter.

As mencionei, I am using the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter to Killzone 3, I gained na ShopTo (I will speak of this in the next article purchase). The first experience was somewhat frustrating. Sentei-I did not pull that is about 3 feet from the TV, I usually play as always. From the days of Atari 2600, Master System, Mega Drive, Super Nintendo, etc. I had a habit of sitting on the floor and play closer to your TV. But with wireless controllers of Playstation 3 I ended up losing that habit and starting to sit comfortably on the couch. Montei has Playstation Move Sharp Shooter with Playstation Move Motion Controller and Playstation Move Navigation Controller, ajustei a Playstation Eye, fiz to calibragem, I put the 3D glasses and what followed was a tremendous effort to get control character. Any movement at least Playstation Move Sharp Shooter did totally change the camera. Aim at an enemy then was practically impossible, see trembled other. I hung up because the 3D was not seeing right, yet still sacrifice. Eventually I gave up and taking the Dualshock 3 to try to play, to at least see what it's Killzone 3, which seems to be a great game.

That's when it occurred to me that I might be too far from the TV. So I decided to reposition the camera Playstation Eye along the foot of the TV (for where she was, above the TV, she “would see” a Playstation Move Sharp Shooter), and sat nearest, in search of 1,5 meters from 46 de TV″ and straight. I did the calibration again and this time yes I really could feel the real intuitive and immersive experience promised by Playstation Move Sharp Shooter. Being closer to the TV, you can control the aiming and movement of the character correctly and the business really gets fun. To understand why it is easier being closer to the TV, only figure is the angle between the position which is Playstation Move Sharp Shooter when you point at the left corner position and when you point in the right corner. Longe da TV, this angle is small and it is very sensitive. Estando perto from TV, the angle is greater and it is less sensitive, facilitating or controle. By the effect of 3D Killzone 3 was much easier to visualize being closer to the TV, then went back to playing with him always on.

The sites specialize in games, in general, said they play with Playstation Move Sharp Shooter é fun, but it does not substitute the DualShock 3. Therein I must disagree. For someone used to playing first person shooters com o DualShock 3 (joystick or other similar) will really take to adapt to the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter. But in my case, I only had a single first person shooter, that is Resistance: Fall of Man, which came bundled with the Playstation 3, but I never played much. On the other hand, played first person shooters on the PC since the days of Doom, through Duke Nukem 3D, Crysis and many other. So with the controls I'm used to first person shooters are a keyboard and mouse. So, to start playing the Killzone 3, otherwise I would have to adapt, ou ao Dualshock 3, or Playstation Move Sharp Shooter. So why not opt ​​for the second? But to summarize: com o DualShock 3 you have to move more easily with the right analog stick, but it's harder to aim; whereas with Playstation Move Sharp Shooter the movement is a bit strange, but it is easier to aim and intuitive.

The box Playstation Move Sharp Shooter come packaged with only one paper, therefore arrived slightly dented, but the product arrived full. Packing this way there was also the advantage of not increasing the volume of the package, since the box is already a rather large. The text box is in English and French, which leads me to believe that this Playstation Move Sharp Shooter was intended for the Canadian market, where the two official languages ​​must be used in packaging. But it may also be that the box is for the entire U.S. market, because the manual includes Spanish, besides English and French. A Playstation Move Sharp Shooter also comes with adhesives Killzone 3 and the SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, compatible with other game Playstation Move Sharp Shooter, that can be pasted into the gun.

Optei pela buy from Playstation Move Sharp Shooter in eStarland because the price is better than the other two stores I usually buy: ShopTo and OfferHouse. In ShopTo, besides being more expensive, freight accessories that size is only by courier, which virtually guarantees a tax. Furthermore, the European version of Playstation Move Sharp Shooter is red, I thought well feinha. Perhaps the European Union or the United Kingdom has a law requiring that guns are replicas of gaudy colors. Of course, the gray-Playstation-One American version also lacking, whereas further Playstation Move Motion Controller, Playstation Move Navigation Controller and other accessories Playstation 3 are all black. Ideally O uma Playstation Move Sharp Shooter Black, but video game replica weapons in black not existed since the days of the Master System Light Phaser. A OfferHouse offers the U.S. version, but the price skirt slightly more expensive than the eStarland, so I ended up opting for eStarland same.

In My first purchase in eStarland I opted for cheaper freight (Brazil-Regular Delivery) by $10,00 USD (U.S. dollars two), without a trace, and got no problems. But because it is a rather large box I thought I'd use a trackable shipping, not least because of the freight Playstation Move Sharp Shooter is greater than the gaming (the weight and size), and the difference between various freight ends up being less. O Brazil-Regular Delivery custaria $32,00 USD e o Brazil-Priority Delivery custaria $35,00 USD, either version with the version without trace as trace, then concluded that only by $3,00 USD difference would be worth asking the freight faster and with tracking. Only informação: in the case of games, o frete Brazil-Priority Delivery com rastreamento custa $22 USD, more than double the Brazil-Regular Delivery.

The purchase is made then in 06/06/2011. What I did not expect is that the eStarland would make a beautiful mess and send my package to another client. I was watching the tracking, seeing that the package arrived in Brazil in 16/06, quickly passed through customs without being taxed, which made me very happy. But, suddenly, behold, the package goes to the CTE Vila Maria in Sao Paulo, which I thought was a bit strange, CTE since this is not part of the normal route packets to my city, but I thought it would be a mistake for Posts. Eis that day 23/06 The package was sent to Campos Do Jordao. Still could be a mistake for Posts, more great chances to havia eStarland sending me the tracking number wrong (at best) or have sent my package to wrong person (the worst). I sent an e-mail to eStarland communicating the incident, to check whether there were any errors, but I ignored. No give 24/06 the package came for delivery in Campos Do Jordao, I knew then that eStarland missed.

I decided to immediately enter the chat shop, that estava online, and talked to Travis, who insisted that it was all a mistake Postal in Brazil and the eStarland do not miss, therefore confer all packets several times, etc. etc. I tried to reason with Travis that it was not error for the Post Office that package would have been checked at least 3 times between being sent to Sao Paulo, be referred to Campos do Jordao and exit for delivery in Campos Do Jordao, but to no avail. He insisted it was a mistake Postal in Brazil, this happened quite a number of other countries, what to me seemed a little arrogant (superioridade type states do unidense), but he quickly added that also happened in the United States. I gave up and waiting for postal delivery confirmation to contact again.

On the same day (24/06, Friday), a little later, the customer received my Playstation Move Sharp Shooter contacted by email saying they received my package and I probably would receive it. Even suggested that we do the exchange between ourselves when it came to me because, he said, a eStarland is wound and never repaid him by two packages that were missing. Comuniquei has been eStarland the incident and was awaiting the package and it's response eStarland to decide what to do. But behold the day 27/06 (Monday), the package it was sent to Campos Do Jordao, in other words, a eStarland no packets exchanged, just sent my package for him. Ironically, the package it was Brazil-Express Delivery, presumably more expensive and faster to all types of freight, but eventually came after the Brazil-Priority Delivery, which was sent on the same day. Neither was taxed. Remember that the priority packets pass through customs in Rio de Janeiro and expressed pass through customs in Sao Paulo. Both seem to be much faster than Pinhais, through which the common and recorded from Europe and Asia (But I do not know if the “Regular Delivery” U.S. pass through there or through Rio de Janeiro). For those who live in the state of São Paulo does not seem to be much difference between the term Priority or Express, since the Express arrived until the day after. Maybe make a difference to other regions.

But back to the mess eStarland. I entered the chat again on Monday, 27/06, and there was Travis again, which made me very happy because I could tell you that eStarland is not as infallible as he thought they were and that they were wrong. At first he did not accept, said that they would investigate and then return to me, but insisted that he wanted an immediate solution, because they had already sufficient evidence that my package had been delivered in the wrong place: tracking and postal own contact another client. Given this, he asked to wait until the end of the day and a few hours after the eStarland gave me a full refund of the amount paid (no estorno via PayPal), e but $10 USD in store credit for the next purchase, as compensation for the inconvenience. I was pleased with the solution, but dissatisfied by yourself without the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter, even though she has no tax even being a rather large box. I decided to wait a few days to decide whether to buy again eStarland or attempted to OfferHouse.

The following day, 28/06, the customer received my Playstation Move Sharp Shooter contacted again stating that it also received the packet and would send my package by registered mail to be collected. I replied that I had already been repaid and that perhaps the eStarland it had levied the return package. As I still wanted a Playstation Move Sharp Shooter even suggested that could pay him upfront sedex, and then pay again eStarland, explaining that he had sent me the package. But then he did not answer me any more. I do not know if the returned Playstation Move Sharp Shooter or if she got. The cost to send it back to the U.S. will probably not compensate for eStarland (who would bear the freight, seen that the error was them), because the shipping would more expensive than the cost price of Playstation Move Sharp Shooter for them, but as states are somewhat bureaucratic unidenses, never know.

Note that in the post 09/06 to delivery in 24/06 were only 15 calendar days, a deadline fast enough, so I decided to risk it again eStarland. I made a new purchase on the day 29/06/2011, Shipping and again chose the Brazil-Priority Delivery w / Tracking (with tracking). This time I added the item Package Imaging Service in Cart, service, the cost of $1 USD, take a picture of your package before it is sent. So I could check that the label was actually with my correct data. If I had done that first purchase in the error would have been detected immediately and any disorder would be avoided. Just do not understand why throw that into account the cost. Should include such a service for free for all international customers, since it serves to detect errors by which they themselves must take responsibility, increasing costs and the risk of losing the customer, that is frustrated with the delay folded.

At the second purchase price Playstation Move Sharp Shooter já gained havia $37,95 USD to $39,50 USD. Adding to $1 USD do Package Imaging Service acabei spending $2,55 USD more than the initial purchase, but as he had the $10 USD which gave credit for the inconvenience, buying all ended up leaving by $65,50 USD, less than $72,95 I had paid the first time. Thus, my compensation for the lost time in chat, I waited the extra time and the headache was unnecessary accurate $7,45 USD.

Then the second Playstation Move Sharp Shooter was stationed in the U.S. 30/06/2011. Received in Brazil 04/07, which was referred to the customs and, amazingly, released the same day! No give 08/07 the package was already in my hands. We just 8 calendar days in transit (6 days), the package fastest I've ever received on purchases abroad. And it was not taxed, even though a relatively large package. If only it were always so.

The package with the Playstation Move Sharp Shooter came with the description “Videogame Accessory” and declared value of $39,00 USD, which is almost the real value of the product, But the value of posting is not declared. The sender of the time it is “Jose Mendes”, but his name comes below the store name “Estarland”. This time not marked the item “Gift”, but the “Merchandise”. Until questioned by email why this change, since my first purchase had noted the “Gift” and had not included the name of the store, but got no answer. Anyway, the package was not taxed, even being declared as merchandise.

That lojinha complicated viu, misses, does not assume the error and sends packets with different information (important information) and does not answer emails.

I would not buy more there.
