PlayStation Move: What is this?

32 second read


Joystiq has gotten their grubby paws on the PlayStation Move at GDC and has taken pictures from every angle possible.

Most of them are pretty standard stuff but this one really has me baffled.

We can see the standard USB port for charging and what looks like clip holes for possibly adding something onto the bottom and then a weird little port labelled “EXT”.

Does anyone have any idea what that will be used for? Surely for any controller add-ons they could just use the USB port?

[Thanks again to Scot for the tip]

    Is it not to connect the two piece together? I.e. Right hand to Left hand?
    Ps the controller is hideously ugly!

      Nah, the sub-controller connects to the console wirelessly.

      It’s some sort of future proofing, although why the usb port couldn;t be used for that is beyond my reckoning. Maybe they opted to not use the usb port for proprietary reasons.

    Ext = extensions maybe?

    Not sure. But I once heard very useful advice from a lady friend: “ASK before you poke..” 😉

    According to independent research it is a well known FACT that this is supposed to connect to a light saber :w00t:

    Maybe its for charging purposes.

      Once again, the standard mini 5p usb port is for charging.

    Maybe its for screwing in another one of those light bulb things on top… just because a double sided light-bulby thing would be quite cool to have 🙂

    Strap some of those light bulbs jigs to your extremities and Natal is fu..d.

    Couldn’t it be for a nunchuck type peripheral?

      The PS Move has a nunchuck-esque accessory called the sub-controller. It connects to the console wirelessly however.

    I guess it’s for move things to “move” into it :whistle:

    My best guess would be: It’s to ensure that “cleva” people don’t try and plug the extention unit into their already exiting usb dualshock controllers, LOL

    Mmmmmm my guess would be to connect it to an external device ie a PSP for God knows what.

    LMFAO at the lightsaber comment.

    According to the LATEST independent research it is a well known FACT that this is supposed to connect to your Xbox. :ninja:

    Flesh-light integration maybe?

    I would think that it is used to connect it to some sort of other device turning it into a “gun” or “racket” with its own set of buttons for easier playability. /guess

    i think it plugs into the other controller so both devices can charge at the same time
