E3 2010: Dual Shock 3 Can Be Used With PlayStation Move
Okay, so we now know all about PlayStation Move. The total controller - wand plus navigation controller - will cost $80 ($49.99 and $29.99 respectively), you can opt for the bundle that comes with the PlayStation Eye and a game for $99.99, there will be a PlayStation 3 package that features Move and lastly, it'll be available in North America on September 19.
There were also quite a few Move-related presentations during Sony's E3 press conference (make sure to check out the Live Demo for Sorcery), but one question remained: could we still use the standard Dual Shock 3 controller with Move-based games? Well, yeah. You don't necessarily need the navigation controller; if you wish, you can just hold your Sixaxis or DS3 controller in your left hand and the Move in your right. The Nav controller does have a few extra buttons, but the crucial buttons for most titles - L1, L2 and the analog stick - are available on the regular controller. Obviously, it may not be the most comfortable setup; it will probably be a more pleasant experience with the Navigation/Wand setup. But if you'd rather save a few bucks, it's good to know the option exists. And for the last time, could we stop seeing people compare the price of Move to the price of the Wii? The technology is just a bit different, you know. The price comparison really isn't fair.
Anyway, we'll have to see how things play out this fall. The idea of Heavy Rain: Move Edition certainly sounds intriguing...
