PlayStation Move: "A Benchmark In Entertainment Innovation"
Perhaps you need the reminder. And even if you don't, after talking about it for months on end, it's only proper that we provide you with the launch announcement.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced the arrival of PlayStation Move exclusively for the PlayStation 3. The new motion-sensing technology will be in retail stores across North America on Sunday, September 19 (some GameStops are preparing midnight launches, too). Offering the "most immersive and realistic gaming experience" yet, Move allows us to utilize a "full range of motion, as well as the opportunity to project the player's image into select games," and of course, it all includes high-definition quality. Said Jack Tretton, SCEA CEO:
"The launch of PlayStation Move is the latest in a long line of innovations over the past 15 years that demonstrate how the PlayStation® brand continues to push the videogame industry forward. We've spent a lot of time perfecting the motion control technology of PlayStation Move, and we are confident this is a benchmark in entertainment innovation that will change the way consumers interact with games."
Nearly 30 Move titles have been announced to date, and that includes EyePet, The Fight: Lights Out, Kung Fu Rider, Sports Champions, The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, Time Crisis: Razing Storm, and Sorcery. Sony has also added Move compatibility to existing and future titles as well, including Killzone 3, Heavy Rain, Resident Evil: Gold Edition, and SOCOM 4.
Move is available at a range of different prices; the Move bundle - priced at $99.99 - features the Playstation Eye, one PlayStation Move controller, a copy of Sports Champions, and a Move game demo disc. If you don't yet own a PS3, there's the PS3 Sports Champions Move Bundle for $399, which features a 320GB PS3 Slim. If you've already got the PS3 and the Eye, you can nab the separate Move controller for $49.99 and the optional navigation controller for $29.99.
So, who's Moving?
