Throughout its development, Sony didn’t say much about its motion controller device. However, during the companies development programing presentation at the Game Developers Conference, the PlayStation-maker released mountains of details about the upcoming device, a device entitled “Move”.
Fully titled “PlayStation Move”, Move uses a combination of wand-style controlling devices and the PlayStation Eye camera to track movement. “It allows you to immerse yourself into the action with incredible precision, rather than simply playing a game,” said Sony Vice President, Peter Dille. Dille also says that the device can recognize both “fast and subtle” movements.
“We’re paving a path from the Wii household to the PS3 household,” he continued. “We’re planning to design games that target all genres and audiences, including core gamers, and we’re treating this like a virtual platform launch. This will be our biggest effort of the year.” In conjunction with the Eye, Move will launch at a “sub $100” price tag — with three featured bundles — this fall.
