It’s official. Sony has just confirmed in the last couple of minutes that it’s forthcoming motion controller will be called ‘Playstation Move’.
At it’s GDC 2010 keynote reveal, Sony’s Peter Dille announced that “previous motion devices have used controller simply as pointer of mouse — ours becomes an extension of your body.”
“We’re approaching this like a virtual platform launch,” Dille continued, explaining that the Move would be available by itself, with the PlayStation Eye camera, which it will work in conjunction with, and as part of a special forthcoming PlayStation 3 bundle.
Dille did’nt give any real pricing details away but the Move bundle with the PlayStation Eye and a game would be priced at just under $100. That’s about let’s say €75 to you and me folks.
During the keynote, Sony showed off a number of demos as well as first party titles such as Little Big planet and Socom 4. Socom 4 it appears will fully support the Move as well as it’s sub-controller. The Move is being supported by 36 third party firms will support the controller. That and 20 first party Move titles will be available by years end. All of that and they even mentioned that 3D Gaming would be supported this summer.
No concrete release date was mentioned.
Stay tuned, we will bring you up to date information, screens and video of the controller as we get them.
So what do you think? Will you be tempted to buy a ‘Move’?
