Take a picture of the receipt and send it to me and I'll post it for you if you like

Just got one in John Lewis Liverpool. Thanks OP, just need to decide whether to get a second or the navigation controller :).

wish we had a john lewis here, really need a second one of these

Bizarre design! Like a golf ball balanced on the end of a remote!

works great though

This doesn't include the vid cam.. right?

So this is just for those who want more than 1..?

Or if you already had the camera...

Picked up 2 at 24.95 in the oxford street john lewis today. It was marked on the shelf at 29.95 though.

Great price but I'm not convinced the move is a keeper for me. Introductory games are very much like the Wii (not too good) and I'llbe damned if I am buying resi evil again just for move compatibility.
Anyway, heat added.

Because you can't buy a multipack of the main controller and navigation controller?
Because not all the Move games require the navigation controller as well?
Because someone doesn't want to fork out £45 for the Starter Pack when they already have a PlayStation Eye?
Because they can buy this controller and then find a cheap deal for the navigation controller?
Because I'm starting to run out of witty things to say regarding your statement?
Because I'm going to finish doing this after the next one of this I can think of?
Because that's all folks I'm gonna find a John Lewis and buy one of these things.

It's a flippin' excellent deal!! You don't actually need the Navigation Controller (Nunchuck bit!), because the Move Controller (with the ball on top!), can actually control the XMB and other options within games by holding down the trigget button (T-Button), and then pointing!

So if you already have the camera, like me (which most long-time PS3 owners undoubtedly have!), then 2 of these controllers at £24.95 each is a bargain!

Admittedly, you only need one to start playing but things start to get a bit more immersive when you use two! And for games that don't use two - then you've always got another for 2-player games!

Considering I just bought 2 at Asda for £27.97, (which was an amazing deal!), then this at £24.95 if you can get it - is flippin' AWESOME! So stop your rubbish! Definitely major HEAT added!!

I bought 2 from John Lewis in Newcastle...this is a brilliant deal. Thanks a lot for the OP for listing it.

Yeah i mean could you imagine how bad this deal would be if it was around £115. Oh wait, rings a bell

good deal although i think i would prefer to get the set..

I went to JL this afternoon to see if they had a MOVE set-up i could have a fiddle with. They didn't. Had a look around and couldn't see any on display. I ask a sales assistant who looked at me sheepishly and said ''errm i think you mean this'' and took me to the sales desk. He picked up the PS Move box and point at the JL printed POS printed on a piece of card that said PLAY STATION MOVE GUN CONTOLLER £12.95. Is that the price i asked? ERRRR...yes he said. Longer story short, two MOVE controllers for the price of one. BOOO-YAAHH.

How does one know someone has got an iPhone?


They tell you

No, thats the navigational controller, not the main one. That controller that you've linked to is £18 at Amazon.

£25 is still a bit much considering the lack of compatible titles

move is awesome soon as you try it you will be converted, really is best gaming tech thats hit for a long time.

Having two of these right now is FAR more beneficial than having a Nav controller. Not only will it allow for 2 players, but Sports Champion, which I believe is the only retail game worth owning right now, is GREATLY improved by using two controllers at once, as well as other titles. The Nav controller has no motion ability at all, it's just a gimped DualShock shaped better for one hand and, if needs be (though it's necessity is rare right now), a DualShock can be used instead (though it's comfort won't be comparable).

tl;dr -- Buy two Move controllers rather than one Move and a Nav.

Your comparing this to a complete system for 2 players that does it all in the one bundle that also comes with a full game and no battery charging needed ?!!!!!!!. lol

You can do nothing with this on it's own so it's a lot of money for what it is should be £20 at the most, it's just a controller.
-------------------------

I don't mean the OPs price is not a good deal but the price they have set of the controller itself .

So good price OP seems to be cheapest yet

Ive had a PS Eye for a couple of years so to be able to only have to layout £24.95 is fantastic . I have a few games already that have just been patched to support Move ( Hustle Kings , High Velocity Bowling and TW11) plus all the demos off the PSN store .
Please dont turn this into a fanboy bitchfest , go to Eurogamer if you want to do that .

That was Darkknight doing the fanboy comment, my original comment had nothing to do with other systems just the price of the controller, that is why I underlined it for end of that discussion.

You may have the PS Eye but a lot (Most) people don't, me included, but that really has nothing to do with me saying "The price of that controller is simply to much for what it is".
When it comes down to what it should be about £20 then I will say it's a good price but until then it's to much for what it is...

Monkey nuts 2

Yeah, do tell.



It was Welwyn Garden City. The staff there had obviously not been informed of the release of the Move.

You are a weird guy, you say it's "no way a good deal", and then after i criticise you, you then say it's "hot".
Surely if you think it's a crap deal, you would vote it cold.

I wasn't comparing a Move controller (Solo unit) to a Kinect system. I was comparing the prices for you, as Kinect is way more expensive than a full Move system (If you do actually need a full one as most people don't)

So actually, you CAN use Move with just this controller (If you have an Eye and DS3 already), so once again you are wrong.

And i'm sure if i went on to a Kinect thread saying it's a bad deal, i would be shot down and be called a fanboy.
Yet you do this so shouldn't you be called a fanboy here?

This thing is amazing. Lovin 'Shoot' and the table tennis paddle action is just amazing!!

More more more!!!

As I said the controller is not a good deal for what it is,It's RRP is to much but the deal by the OP is the best price for what you have to pay so it's a hot deal.

Well the Kinsect is way more overpriced than the Move, or parts of the Move. That's all i have to say about that.

And lol at you going through all my posts, is that what you've used your sunday for? Why don't you use it by playing on your Xbox?

What's with fanboy **** like this? I'm a PS3 owner, and there is a reason why Reach is one of the most critically acclaimed games this generation. If you can complete the campaign on a worthy difficulty in 5 hours, you are a god. It's easily the most feature-packed shooter on the market, so to talk about longevity and content with regards to Reach in such a demeaning manner is nothing short of idiotic.
