Rumor: Move Lands On Store Shelves September 2010
We know PlayStation Move is scheduled to launch some time later this year - likely fall - but Sony has yet to narrow down the date.
Initially, the fancy new motion-sensing technology for the PlayStation 3 was supposed to have released in the first or second quarter of this year, but Sony wanted to have more compatible software on shelves when Move debuted. Hence, the delay. And we've heard hints and whispers that we should probably expect an October or November launch but according to Gadget Show head Jason Bradbury, it'll actually be ready for the consumer in September, which is more like the end of summer. As Bradbury said on his Twitter page:
"... another thing I was meaning to say. Sept for PlayStation Move!!! I'm sure of it. Can't say why. Just.. September 2010."
We may have our reservations about Move but there's no doubt that it's a new piece of technology, and one that likely deserves some attention. Can it wrench everyone away from their precious Wiis? Can it top Microsoft's Natal? Will the games truly represent distinct, unique experiences that actually up the level of immersion on the part of the player? All of these are questions that require answering and if Move arrives in September, we'll have our shot at the answers before the leaves fall from the trees.
