Sony Releases "The Ultimate FAQ" For PlayStation Move
There are many questions floating around about PlayStation Move. So many, in fact, it would probably help to have a hand-dandy guide.
So if you're planning on becoming a Move gamer, you should check out The Ultimate FAQ over at the PlayStation Blog. It really tells you everything you could ever need to know, from the most basic - yes, Move can only be used with the PlayStation 3 but yes, it'll work with any PS3 model - to the most detailed. They've also got a super important rundown of the pricing: the Move motion controller will go for $49.99, the PlayStation Eye retails for $39.99, the Navigation controller has a $29.99 price tag, and there's even a charging station for the whole thing, which will go for $$29.99. Oh, and don't forget about that nifty shooter attachment for $19.99. If you lack the Eye, you should probably consider the PlayStation Move bundle; it'll cost $99.99, and you'll get the Move controller, the Eye, and Sports Champions. If you don't yet own the PS3, there's a Move bundle package, featuring the big 320GB PS3 system.
We like the answer to the question, "What kind of gamer is PlayStation Move geared towards?"
"Whether you’re experienced, casual, or somewhere in between, PlayStation Move has a wide variety of games including sports, action, party, family, and shooters. Social party games like Start The Party! and Sports Champions are perfect for families, while core titles like Killzone 3, SOCOM 4 and Heavy Rain will keep things challenging for more advanced gamers. In order to tell what games are appropriate for younger gamers, look for the ESRB rating and descriptors on the bottom left of every game case for an age rating and content descriptors."
So essentially, it's for everyone. Also, remember that Move titles will start at $39.99, but "specific pricing will depend on the game and the media format." Early games specifically designed for Move, like Sports Champions, Kung Fu Rider and Start the Party!, will retail for $39.99, while Move-compatible games like Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 will have the standard $59.99 price tag.
