Tomorrow see’s the launch of the Sony PlayStation Move, which maybe similar to Nintendo’s own motion controllers but more accurate and precise. The new hardware is Sony’s attempt to bring more families and young children to its PS3.
Claudine Beaumont from the Telegraph.co.uk is reporting that the decision is in response to Nintendo selling over 70 million Wii’s since it was first launched back at the end of 2005. We will also see Microsoft joining the fray in November with the release of the Kinect for the Xbox360. Although this device does away for the need for controllers altogether.
While a lot of gamers prefer the Xbox, the PS3 has slowly grown in strength and the Move is just another addition to its capabilities. When it first launched a lot of people were turned off the console because of its high price tag, but with recent firmware updates which allow it to play 3D games (providing you have a 3D TV) the console has added more strings to its bow.
The Blu ray player and the fact you can watch and download movies via the PlayStation VideoStore, further enhance the console. Does the PS3 Move help to create the ultimate entertainment center? Share your thoughts below.
