It's not long before all of us will require a motion-controller in some form for our home console. However depressing that is, if you're looking to be a step ahead, you can pre-order the Playstation Move Starter Pack off Choices UK for just £38.49.
When you consider just how much Sony stuffed into these starter packs, Choices UK's deal is pretty damn good. Along with the Move controller, which I'll discuss later, there's the requisite PS Eye Camera, and a so-called 'starter disc', presumably loaded with demos of Move games. Not bad for just under 40 quid.
So, the Playstation Move. Essentially, it's a beefed-up Wiimote, except instead of relying simply on a set of inertial sensors which monitor the Move's orientation, it has a spherical protuberance fitted on the top, which glows and is tracked by the PS Eye Camera. The camera tracks the movement of the orb to such a precise degree you can simulate drawing on a bowstring and releasing it like an arrow.
Unlike Kinect, which, at face value, is a mouth-watering prospect, but with Microsoft's strategy in mind, is simply a colossal disappointment, Move seems fairly well set-up to build on all the advances made by developers on the Wii. As such, it's not getting much attention at the moment, outside of the media and loyal fans, but with enough coverage and the right games, the Playstation Move might just be able to cement a place in the market.
