PlayStation Motion Controller Officially Named – It's time to move it

1 min read

Sony had their GDC keynote earlier this morning and the big news coming out of that is the fact that they have named and priced their upcoming motion controller.

The motion controller will henceforth be named the Move and the previously rumoured nunchuck attachment will be called the PlayStation Move Subcontroller.

The great news is that they are expecting to release a bundle including he Move, Eye Toy and a game for under $100 (R1000) when it gets released later this year which is a pretty impressive price tag and instantly means that Project Natal must also be under $100 with a free game.

The Move is also the only real thing they announced that I saw so it’s safe to say that Motion Controlling is Sony’s plan for world domination over the next 2 years. Since the PS3 already does everything else I don’t really have any issues with that.

PS: They did also announce that GT5 will be shipped this year but they did not say when this year or whether they meant calendar year or financial year…

    “the PlayStation Move Subcontroller” WTF?? The worst name EVER.

    I already have a Wii which I use mostly for party games, so not too sure if you would buy this… yet. Not too excited (about this or Natal to tell you the truth)

      I hope its the PlayStation Move “Subcontroller”. They really need to work on a new name for that…

    Looks like Eurogamer is impressed , especially with the Sports offering and Socom 4 , so it is looking good. More responsive than Wii motionplus.
    No need to get a Wii then.

    And so it begins…


    I think Sony are going to start getting quite a few more Wii ports. This is starting to seem like a great move by Sony.
