Playstation Move

Sony has announced their newest venture, titled "Playstation move" it is essentially motion-sensors combined with a webcam and the PS3. I'm not gonna lie, this looks like a straight up copy of the Wii, the big difference however will be the accuracy and how it interacts with the webcam. The Wii was a good idea, the only downside is the system itself is pretty weak in terms of hardware. Not a lot has been shown on the Playstation move yet but E3 is right around the corner. We should be hearing a lot more on this and Microsoft's "Natal" in the coming months. Here is some more info courtesy of magic box

"The system will use the PlayStation Eye Camera and PlayStation Move to perform high precision real-time three dimentional tracking. The PlayStation Move will come with a sub-controller which is like the Nunchuk for Wii.

There is virtually no log and latency is the same as the DualShock 3 controller. Sony's SOCOM 4 will support PlayStation Move. Sony said virtually every major developer is making PlayStation Move games, including Activision, Ubisoft, EA, Disney, Sega, Konami, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, Koei Tecmo, Capcom, Crave and more.

The PlayStation Move starter kit will come with a game, controller and PlayStation Eye Camera, and the price will definitely lower than $100. Sony plans to release over 20 games that support the motion controller by the end of the fiscal year."
