-----------------

The Playstation move takes motion-sensing gaming to the next level. True 1:1, sub-millimeter tracking puts gamers into the virtual world of the PS3 and allows them to interact with the environment as if the objects were in their own living room. The controller uses the PlayStation Eye Camera in conjunction with the light emitting 'orb' atop the controller to calculate your position in three-dimensional space. As the orb can change colour, multiple controllers can be tracked simultaneously.

This Playstation Move: Starter Pack Includes:

* Playstation Move: Motion Controller
* Playstation Eye Camera
* Starter Disc

£25 average RRP for the Camera, £25 RRP For the Sub Controller, £39.99 for the Move Controller, and then there are trailers showing games that support left and right hand Move Controllers, is this going to catch on?!

Got this bad feeling for both Sony and Microsoft with their motion add ons...epic fail.

It is pretty expensive for the "full" experience. Think the cheapest I've seen for the sub controller is £29, again at GameGears, so with the discount you're still looking at over £70 for the whole bundle.

As long as there's plenty of games which just support the Move controller without the sub controller though, then this bundle's fairly good value.

The only trailer that I have seen half decent so far is the Sorcery game, which I am sure will work just as nicely swirling round the analogue sticks, as for Kinect, I am yet to see anything worthwhile with that!

Wasn't a fan of what I saw of Kinect, especially not at the rumoured $150 price point (so probably £100-£120 for us over here). There's going to have to be some amazing games to justify that price.

As I just posted (comment #57) in the "Playstation Move Starter Pack - Move Controller + Eye Camera + Starter Disc Play.com £49.99" deal thread...

fanpages

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.

...

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

...

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

Not such a bad outlay if anyone has already invested in the camera, however as a gamer I am yet to see anything that would impress me to want any motion controller other than what has come with my Wii and its motion plus add on.

I am even surprised at E3 that Sony had nothing to show from Team Ico with Last Guardian, how did that exclusive get overlooked? Gran Turismo 5 certainly looks like its going to make Forza 3 look like Lego Bricks in comparison though, very impressive.

The thing with kinect is that one camera allows four players to play where as you need to buy four move controllers thats where kinect is the better deal.

The peripherals are aimed at the causual market just like the wii is aimed at the causual market, My four year old cant hold the xbox controller its too big where as kinect means that we can have a family night with the xbox so it's a must buy for me.

I don't think Move is exclusively aimed at casual market tbf. I wouldn't exactly consider Killzone 3, Socom 4, Heavy Rain, Time Crisis, Resi Evil 5, Dead Space extraction, Ruse to be casual games....

So will there be a bundle with the 2 move controllers as I already have the camera.

I suspect there are more people that just you & me [EDIT]...and Peterdj41... [/EDIT] who already own a PlayStation Eye camera, aerotec. Hence, I would expect a dual-controller bundle, or be able to buy the individual controllers separately.

Some of the game titles may well be bundled with one of the, or both of the controllers too.

With third person shooters surely a Keyboard + Mouse combination like as with PC is the best option.

Heavy Rain is going to be patched for use with Move, cannot really see what use its going to be...even Sorcery which looks good, whilst novel pretending you are waving round your magic wand its still going to be playable with a standard controller.

With that all in mind, it seems like it will be more of a novelty for casual games.

Owning both the 360 and PS3, I find I have very little interest other than curiosity on how motion gaming is going to pan out.

Well yes obviously but why are there 70/80million people playing with controllers on 360 and ps3s?

Heavy Rain will use gestures so the move will replace the analogue stick.

im pretty sure i read that heavy rain was first mant to be a game only powered by move until they changed it to support DS3
