Playstation Move Local Pricing

1 min read


A newsletter sent out by Incredible Connection has revealed the local pricing and availability of Sony’s imminent motion controller, Playstation Move. According to the retailer the device will sell for quite a bit less than anticipated when it finally reaches our shores.

The start-up bundle, including the Move wand, the necessary Playstation Eye camera and a demo disc will retail for just R699.95, with standalone wands for just R449. This is pretty darned reasonable pricing – and at that price point I’m much more likely to get Move at launch than Kinect, which launches locally at a price of R1999. There’s no word on what the sub-controller might cost though – but a standard Dual Shock will suffice for its purpose.

The accessory will be available from September 15.

Thanks to Uberutang for the tip.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
