£60 ant bad u say, i agree then u got to pay for the sub controller which is 29.99 then theirs the charging kit which is another £30 so its gunna total at £120 for a controller to function to its full potential, reckon its de-ja-vu again what with sony pricing the ps3 to highly when it first came out.
@Craig: You don't need the charging station to charge your move controllers, you can simply use the same mini USB cable you use on your current PS3 controllers. And furthermore, you can use a SIXAXIS controller instead of a sub controller. So yeah, you only need £60 to use the Move (unless your game requires 2 Move controllers, that is).
W.S Beaujon, good luck holding a six-axis and a move controller at the same time with any real ability, lol. Anyone interested in this get a standard webcam which apparently functions the same as eyetoy then just get the move and subcontroller seperately, probably about 70 quid max.
you don't need the Sub Controller - infact its main use is for easy navigation of the XMB, and it is essentially just the left side of a sixaxis controller, so i'm pretty sure we can hold a sixaxis controller long enough to use the left analog stick to start the game. :)
That bundle there gives you everything you need to play Move games, although a 2nd main controller may improve your experience in certain games.
What worries me is that Sony hasn't yet acknowledged that the bundle that people can buy here will be sold in Europe =/
Yes but a Wii remote can cost up to £50 with an extra tenner for a second Numchuk, which is essential if you want more than one player. And the numchuk was needed for a fair few games. My understanding is that most Move games will not need the sub controller at all. Whether Move is merely a wii ripoff gimick or a serious piece of game kit that will expand the PS3 experience remains to be seen. I will be getting this but to be honest I'd probably read a few reviews from people who've bought and played AFTER it's mid-September release before making a decision
Day one purchase for me, due to a mix of me being a massive idiot and wanting allot of the games that will be coming out that support it...
Resident Evil 5 Gold Killzone 3 EA Create Time Crisis Razing Storm (3 game in one) Sorcery Little Big Planet 2 Socom 4 Kung-fu riders Dead space 2 (PS3 version will include a move compatible version of "Dead Space: Extraction - http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=251817)
Hopefully there will be some more interesting stuff down the line!
just traded the Wii and the handful of good games I had for it in... for the move starter kit and a second controller. Goodbye Nintendo. I agree with the above poster - I'll be getting Sports Champions though - to play with the wife... then RE 5, Killzone 3, Time crisis, probably The Shoot... Can't wait to see what developers start doing with this tech... its very impressive.
BEFORE BUYING A MOVE *Are you an hardcore gamer? *do you know the following titles- Resident Evil Gold Edition or RE5? Heavy Rain? R.U.S.E? Hustle Kings? Tiger Woods Golf? *If you don't own any of them, are you willingly to pay for old updated games? *are you willing to fork out £150 just to get the best experience for the Move? *are you alright with playing casual games for a feel months till better hardcore games arrive for the Move?
Because the Move has no games! comes with casual demos to showcase power of Move and not Games. You are required to shell out more money to get more out of the Move if you are hardcore, Sony expects you to stick with old games such as Heavy Rain, RE5 till better games comes out.
Not worth it! Wait dec 2010 or 2011 and then buy a Move!
you can get 2 sticks, a camera and a game (all you need)for £90 assuming you want a game, the starter box and a second controller, which you don't need (just an enhancement all games are compatible with just one. What i have observed by sales though is that several have been sold already, which will likely mean a fair few games will be developed in the coming months, or have a Move addition before release. Plus Sorts champions is pretty good, and most "old" games can have Move patches downloaded so i'm not sure this argument is entirely fair
This is true for now, but when they start using it in FPS games that sub controller is going to be essential for lateral movement of the 'body' (camera) on screen - same as the left stick on a normal pad is now. So it's an investment for the future. I know Killzone 3 is using move but not sure how it's going to handle movement.
As a PC gamer I've never got on that well with FPS games on consoles, they feel so clunky/tank like but the move controller (nav in left, gun sights in right main move controller) will hopefully not just make it match mouse/kb on PC but surpass it due to comfort and feedback.
