So basically Sony is playing catchup with Nintendo now? :P

This looks a lot more promising than Wii's crap. and hopefully some of the games will be aimed at people who arent 5yr old girls unlike nintendo. :)

i dont think so.

i watched the live sony show from E3 last night & this looks very good! FAR more acurrate than the wii. tey demo'd tiger woods & kept going on about you not just being able to flick your wrist! as the camera is used also you do the full swing & its shown on screen

i have to say that i will get it, but its to expensive at the minute (as its just been announced) make it both for £40 & its a deal!

It looks great and I'm sure i'll be getting one as well.
but, it should be noted that the eye camera is also required to use this.

I'm sure most retailers will be doing bundles on this, especially as it's to be released on the run-up to christmas.

prices are way too high.

I mean the controller, the subcontroller and the ps eye all together will cost north of £100. Erm, thanks but no thanks.

Not really a fan of motion control, but this is what the Wii pretended it was!

I'm all for 3D games though and the 3DS.

thats your opinion, you do know that the move is compatible with a load of other games aswell not just the few you'll get on the disc e.g killzone 3, socom4.

$99 ≠ £50

Yeah I know but it is still a lot of money, even the wiimote and nunchuck, plus Kinect are expensive, companies just like to rip people off lol. But all three peripherals look amazing so I am sure people will end up getting them no doubt.

It's only just been announced so how/why is this a deal? It's way too expensive for a start, it just looks like a nintendo wii controller with a coloured ball stuck to the end of it.

Considering the recommended retail price of a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller is £34.99 & a PlayStation Eye camera is £24.99 (although you can find both cheaper if you shop around; as you will be able to do with the PlayStation Move peripherals) I don't think the pricing is that bad.

The PlayStation Eye can be used with other titles or as a microphone in many (first party) titles as well.

The Wii console controllers were a similar price orignally too.

As I have just mentioned in the "E3 is live!" thread (comment #379):

You do not "have to have" the sub-controller.
In fact you do not "have to have" the main controller.
You can still use a standard (SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3) controller if you wish.

As it was with the "Wiimote" & "Nunchuk" (Norris) controllers for use with the Wii console from Nintendo.
You can still play the same games with a "classic" controller if you wish to.

In fact, this leads me into another point...

The availability of PlayStation Move-biased games on the European PlayStation Store is obviously going to be prevalent (just before &) from the day of release (15 September 2010) in Europe. Hopefully such titles will be grouped in a separate category so you can choose to ignore those titles if you wish to.

However, without purchasing the "Co-Motion" (fanpages' term) or "3-mote" (coined by reakt) devices then you are never going to be able to fully appreciate the titles & what they can offer you.

I would expect Sony Road show ("PlayStation House")-type demonstrations & "pop-up" stands to be in local shopping centres in September so that the general public can make informed choices with on-hand (literally) demonstrations of titles they may be used to playing but that now support PlayStation Move as another input method of control.

Without such promotion then the take-up of the new peripheral technology is going to suffer (especially if a majority of the public consider the new controllers too expensive).

Yes, it does have the "rumble" feature like the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

I didn't know that UK/EU prices had been revealed yet.
Highly speculative.
really impressed by the proper demo's at E3, but still unsure.
Maybe Everybody's Golf 6 with Move support could convince me. C'mon ClapHanz, now that Everybody's Tennis PSP is complete how about a bit of PS3 golf love...

if thats the price its not bad, but will wait to buy with a bundle game

They have that pack listed on Amazon now, for £59.99 - not sure that it includes a sub-controller though, which seems a bit of a swiz.

EDIT: OK, it seems that you don't need the sub-controller, as it just duplicates the function of the left side of a regular gamepad. It would be a pain in the rear to hold a regular pad in one hand, and the Move controller in the other though.

The starter pack is 49.99 at game - plus double game points and probably c1.5% ashback through quidco.

Myself, I will wait till it is bundled with a a game.

Perhaps a “BenHeck(endorn)” one-handed controller is what you need?:

I submitted the following text in a comment in another PlayStation Move (deal) thread, so I may as well make reference to it here as well as I think it is relevant...

The Wii Remote uses an internal ("ADXL330") accelerometer capable of sensing three individual axes & ("PixArt") optical sensor technology for communication with the Wii "sensor bar" (containing ten infrared Light-Emitting Diodes; five at each end of the bar). Movement can be detected up to 5 metres away by the use of "triangulating" light sources from the two sets of light clusters & the image sensor within the controller.

Height & Distance are calculated by the same method & rotation is controlled by the accelerometer acting as a tilt sensor.

Due to the use of infrared the system can be subject to interference from other infrared sources in the same environment.


PlayStation Move relies upon the PlayStation Eye camera to track the wand's position along a multitude of planes (or, rather tracks the illuminated "orb" on the top of the controllers containing RGB Light-Emitting Diodes), & two inertial sensors (a three-axis linear accelerometer & a three-axis angular rate sensor) to detect motion & rotation when the controller is not in direct line-of-sight of the PlayStation Eye (known as "dead reckoning").

The distance of the controller from the PlayStation Eye is determined by the fact that the size of the spherical "orb" is known so the detected image of the light source can be used to gauge distance accurately (& with high precision; at the most to within one or two centimetres in the Z-axis, & to within a few millimetres in the X-Y plane) in three dimensions. A magnetometer is also included that can be used to calibrate the controller's orientation with respect to the Earth's magnetic field. This helps to make corrections against drift (cumulative error) of the inertial sensors.

The response time for the motion control system has been quoted (by Mark D Green, a senior designer for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe) as being around 22 milliseconds!

See: "PlayStation 3 News Articles: - PlayStation Move games interview" (UK.PlayStation.com)

The motion controller also incorporates haptic (tactile feedback) technology for vibration("rumble")-based feedback.

The two systems are similar, but not the same.

When you appreciate the amount of technology in each controller it may influence the impression you have about their respective & relative cost.

The Wii Remote ("Wiimote") & Nunchck controllers had a similar Suggested/Recommended Retail Price when Nintendo's console was first made available to the public.

"Shopping around" is always a good idea to secure a better deal/price.

BFN,

fp.

[EDIT]:
PS. With the Wii console the "Wii Sensor Bar" is issued as standard with the boxed product, as is a "Wii Remote" (and "Nunchuk" in some regions).

This is the primary input method for the console, although a "classic" or GameCube controller may be used as well.

The PlayStation Move technology needs the PlayStation Eye camera, but the primary input method for the console is the wireless SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 controller.

So, you can compare the motion sensor peripherals but it is unfair to compare both consoles on their primary input method(s).
