I think this is still a little steep for single controllers but they are the cheapest around at the moment. Playstation Move Navigation Controller £27:85: http://www.shopto.net/PS3/ACCESSORIES/PS3…

agreed way over priced. I always said I'd only get Kinect or Move on release then get the other in the long run.

At the mo I'm thinking kinnect but it depends how much it is.

Agreed, Kinect supports multiple users where as shelling out for each Move controller is putting me off for the time being. The best price around at the moment but still too much in my opinion.

As I have posted in a few deal threads already, 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.

don't want to get drawn into which controller i rather buy (although i do have a preference)

but the first thing you should consider when buying a new controller are the games available and the types of games supported.

so the technology is 3 led's and an accelerometer?

thats £50 well spent

"three-axis" does not mean three diodes. Please re-read what I typed & then come back with your negativity.

Thanks.


Do you favour the Wii Remote & Nunchuk controllers? They too had similar retail prices three years ago.

I agree that the controller seems fairly expensive. However I will still be getting it. You may or may not know that until recently, Sony were making a loss for each PS3 sold. However their plan was to make up for this loss (and make profit) through software sales and peripherals (such as this motion controller). So yes it is expensive, but it is somewhat understandable. I doubt that the price of this will go down (just look at Dualshock 3). I am sure this product will provide great entertainment for years to come.

At the moment, this seems to be the best price, however I would hold out on pre-ordering as I am sure (or more like hope) there will be some super-hot deals as its release date approaches (or maybe another one of those Very/Littlewoods/Kats/Additions £30 off a £60 spend vouchers would be available)

Kinect doesn't look good at all & Move is way over priced,i think i will stick to wiimote & motion plus.

I think those people hoping for wonderful multiplayer compatibility on Kinect are deluding themselves. I have a strong suspicion that crowded rooms and domestic pets will totally screw up any hope of multiplayer accurate control. I don't want to have to exhile my friends from my living room if they aren't interested in playing the game.

Once they see the game selection they may well leave of their own accord.

Harsh but fair, for the European release date, I feel.

The selection (& quality) of titles will increase next year, but we may all well have gone back to convention "joypad" controllers by then anyway.

yes, not particularly busy rooms, these demo booths.
What happens if your wife/cat/dog walks in front of the Kinect?
I know it struggled with sofas and certain colours to begin with, has that been sorted out now?

FYI: "Move pricing ‘could confuse customers’" (MCVUK.com)

Michael Pachter thinks multi-SKU approach and mixed requirements of titles could lead to low initial sales

Customers may be left baffled by both the range of accessories needed for the full PlayStation Move experience and the variation of compatibility between titles, according to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter.

Sony’s PlayStation Move comprises three separate components – the Move Controller, the Navigation Sub-Controller and the PlayStation Eye. Some games will require just the Eye, some the Eye and the Move and some all three.

Add in multiplayer titles to that and the combinations become more confusing – and the cost more intimidating.

“We think that the pricing has the potential to confuse consumers,” Pachter warned. “In order to be safe, consumers wishing to participate in the Move experience will have to purchase the Eye, two Move controllers and the Navigation controller, plus a game.

“If purchased as part of a bundle, the all-in cost to play with Move will approach $180, which we think is beyond the reach of the typical household. We think that Sony’s Move is truly impressive, but remain concerned that initial sales could disappoint.”

MS ‘struggling’ with Kinect pricing (MCVUK.com)

Outspoken analyst Michael Pachter thinks Microsoft must price new device “close to cost” for maximum impact

Analyst Michael Pachter believes that the reason behind the continued lack of a confirmed RRP for Microsoft’s Kinect motion camera is that the platform holder is still struggling with some aspects of its launch strategy for the device.

Speaking in a note to investors, Pachter noted that he was “less impressed” with both Kinect and Move than he was with Nintendo’s 3DS, adding: “We think unlike the 3DS (which is a truly revolutionary experience), pricing for Kinect and Move will have a profound impact on ultimate sell-through.

“Microsoft did not announce a price point for Kinect. We think that the company is struggling with a pricing strategy, as it is logical to argue that the lifetime value of a customer is quite high, due to the user-friendliness of the device.

“In our view, Microsoft could dramatically expand usage of its 40m Xbox 360 installed base if it could drive Kinect sales to this audience, as we believe that the non-gamers in the typical Xbox 360 household will find Kinect inviting and unintimidating.

“We think that if Microsoft prices Kinect close to cost (which we estimate to be around $70), it will see a very high attach rate, with the potential to drive $200 – 400 in lifetime value from each Kinect household. On the other hand, it is equally logical to charge a very high price for the device, especially if it is expected to be supply-constrained.”...
