It has been about four years since Nintendo first showed us how fun motion controllers can be. Now, Sony is ready to deliver the next step up in motion control.


Move It, Groove It

First revealed at E3, the Sony has finally named their motion controller during this year's Game Developers Conference: PlayStation Move. This controller combines motion sensors in the controller and the PlayStation Eye camera for extremely accurate motion detection. The glowy ball at the end of the Move controller changes colors for maximum accuracy. The Move controller also has basic buttons and a rumble feature.


Nunchuk Sidekick

Like the Nintendo Wiimote, the PlayStation Move has a nunchuk sub-controller. However, unlike the Wiimote and its accessories, the PlayStation Move is completely wireless! Also, you will never have to worry about buying new batteries as both controllers recharge with the same USB plug system that the SIXAXIS and DualShock controllers have.


The PlayStation Move sub-controller is only used for its analog stick and buttons; it does not have any motion control technology in it at all. Instead, if you want to play a game like boxing, you simply grab two PlayStation Move controllers and ignore the sub-controller entirely!


Already on the Move

Game makers are already designing games with the PlayStation Move in mind. Before the end of the year, there will be more than 20 games that you can play using the Move controller! Supporting developers include Capcom, Square-Enix, Disney Interactive Studios, Electronic Arts, Hudson, SEGA, Ubisoft, THQ, and Warner Bros. Interactive. The PlayStation move is set to be on the shelves in North America by Fall 2010.
