Sydney, March 11, 2010 – Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) today announced that PlayStation®Move motion controller for PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system, launches worldwide this fall (Australian Spring), offering a motion-based, high-definition gaming experience unlike anything on the market. Concurrently with its launch, SCE will also release PlayStation®Move sub-controller to be used along with the motion controller for intuitive navigation of in-game characters and objects. The PlayStation Move platform, including the motion controller, sub-controller, and PlayStation®Eye camera*1, together with a strong lineup of software titles, will deliver an innovative and highly immersive experience on the PS3 system.
The combination of the PS3 system and PlayStation Eye camera detects the precise movement, angle, and absolute position in 3D space of PlayStation Move motion controller, allowing users to intuitively play the game as if they themselves are within the game. PlayStation Move motion controller delivers unmatched accuracy through its advanced motion sensors, including a three-axis gyroscope, a three-axis accelerometer, and a terrestrial magnetic field sensor, as well as a color-changing sphere that is tracked by PlayStation Eye camera. Through PlayStation Move system, both fast and subtle motion can be detected, whether the user is swinging a tennis racket, or painting with a brush. With PlayStation Move motion controller, users can provide direct input through action buttons and an analog trigger, while receiving physical feedback from rumble functionality and visual feedback from the sphere’s ability to display a variety of different colors. Furthermore, PlayStation Eye camera can capture the player’s voice or image, enabling augmented reality experiences

The newly announced PlayStation Move sub-controller is a one-handed controller, developed to further expand the game play options that PlayStation Move games can offer*2. PlayStation Move sub-controller features a sleek curved design that pairs with the motion controller and comes with an analog stick and directional buttons that allow users to easily control the game when moving characters or choosing a direction. Like all other Wireless Controllers for the PS3 system, it comes with a built in lithium-ion rechargeable battery as well as Bluetooth® technology, enabling the controller to transfer the input information wirelessly to the PS3 system without a cable. PlayStation Move motion controller and sub-controller will further broaden the gaming experience on the PS3 system for all genres, from games that use one motion controller to games that use both controllers.

The introduction of PlayStation Move controllers has been well received within the industry and now 36 third party developers and publishers*3 have decided to support PlayStation Move platform. In fiscal year 2010, SCE Worldwide Studios will also release more than 20 games that are either dedicated to or supported with the PlayStation Move platform.
SCE, with strong support from software developers and publishers, will deploy various measures to enhance the PlayStation Move software title line-up and vigorously promote the PS3 platform.

*1 Users will need to use the PlayStation Eye camera to enjoy PlayStation Move motion controller on PS3.
*2 DUALSHOCK® or SIXAXIS® Wireless Controller can also be used in place of the sub controller.

    i think natal is most likely going to be better for me at least and i don’t think it really has what it takes to compete with the juggernaut that is the wii mote but it will still be nice for ps3 owners that only have ps3s and want motion control

  • Mark

    Seems a “Wii” bit familiar if you ask me 😉

  • Hmm… gonna reserve judgement for when I see it in action 🙂

  • skull_x_man

    Sony…is that all you got? Really low…

  • I liked the name Arc more, and this looks wayyy to much like the Wiimote in my opinion but I’m not particularly in to the motion controls anyway.

  • Andrenekoi

    Arc was a better name in my opinion too, and the design is not what i could say i’m impressed.

    As I said, I like the idea of getting people up and active but I still think after all the negativity they gave to Nintendo, this is a rip-off. Just my thought.

  • versapak

    I know a lot of people are skeptical about the motion controls coming from Sony and 360, and the fear that we will be looking at an onslaught of crud like that which flooded the Wii, but I am excited.

    There are come cool things that can be done with motion controls, and with so much emphasis being put on them from all 3 major consoles now, I am excited about the possibilities. Especially from the HD able consoles.

    This thing just looks like some cheap dollar-store toy… haha
