Yesterday, Sony finally announced the name and gave a little more insight into its newest motion controller, the PlayStation Move.
Sony made the announcement yesterday at a press conference at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. You can watch the entire presentation below:
The PlayStation Move is a combination of a the Playstation 3 iteration of the Playstation Eye camera; a wand controller which features a multicolor, light-emitting diode sphere and a secondary controller for character movement similar to the nunchuk on the Nintendo Wii. This combination is Sony's answer to the Nintendo Wii and its motion controller - just four years late - and Microsoft's up-coming Natal for the Xbox 360.
Sony has released the most information on the Playstation Move on it's European blog filled with photos and a trailer:
The new Move is slated for release Holiday 2010 and is reported to cost less than $100. Sony is also suggesting that Move features can be added to existing games since integration of the new controller poses low technical demands on PS3.
Be on the look out for more information relating to the Playstation Move and Xbox 360 Natal on VGF.
