The lights are on
Coming off of Microsoft's big push for Kinect yesterday, Sony had a new motion controller of their own to begin getting gamers hyped for. Unlike the competition, though, Sony came to E3 prepped with specifics on the release date and pricing for PlayStation Move.
The Move will be available beginning September 19 in America, September 15 in Europe, and October 21 in Japan.
If you want to pick one up for yourself, it will set you back $50 for the main wand controller and $30 for the "Navigation controller" -- the nunchuk-esque add-on. A bundle that includes a Move controller, the Eyetoy camera, and the game Sports Champion will be available at launch for $99, as will a new PS3/Move bundle for $399.
Stay tuned to Game Informer for hands-on impressions with the games that use Move as E3 continues.
i cant wait im exicited
The price tag is def more inviting than the Kinect
they spent way too much time with move in the press conference
After seeing all the E3 stuff I don't think any of move's games will be able to do what Dance Central is going to do for the Kinect. The price really isnt that big of difference in the scheme of things.. the natal does a lot more stuff overall (Don't get me wrong, hate the prices of both regardless).
so, that makes NO SENSE! The bundle has ONE WAND. that means you cant even PLAY the fighting game thats in the PAckage (It needs 2). at $50 a POP, if you want a 2 player FIGHT, it will run you $200. BLAH. Ill wait for some generic ones from MADCAT or NYKO
Why even announce the 399 bundle when a new ps3 + a new move package cost the same price if bought seperately?
To me it just made them look stupid and took a little wind out of their sails at that point during the press conference.
but wait, there's more...
if you order today you can get 2 ps3s for $600. woohoo
I agree with HamJamIAm. The pricing is way better than the Kinect. I'll still wait to get this though until I see what kinds of games will come out for it.
Ouch. For my budget, it isn't worth it.
Hm, prices are about what I expected, and they're making a good MOVE (hahaha, I keed, I keed) releasing it before Kinect if you ask me. Get a jump on the market.
wait so the bundle for 99 is that the wand and the little nunchuck thingy or just wand because then you looking at 130
ill be getting the 99 dollar bundle.
Hmm at least it isn't 150 bucks like Kinect.
Look's like a cost problem to me, and the same for Xbox's pricing...
I'm excited for this. I love the Wii, and a lot of its games, but this seems to be taking it to the next level. And the price is really good! I also like how it is still a controller (well, sort of) and not just a camera thingmebobber (although the Kinect looks kinda cool). I also like how hardcore games (like Killzone) are supporting it. Awesome!!!!
Much better pricing than Kinect.
Great price! We have a winner!
Move > Kinect.
Don't care. Kinect FTW.
