PlayStation "Move" Release Date Revealed at E3

Yesterday at E3, Sony announced that the new PlayStation Move would be available on September 19th.

When first released, a Move bundle will be available for $99. The bundle will include a Move controller, an EyeToy camera, and a Sports Champion game. The Move bundle will be available with the original PS3 console for $399 as well.

If you're not into the bundle, each Move wand is going to cost you $49, and navigation controllers, which don't seem to be coming in the bundle, will cost you $39.

The whole thing just gets a little ridiculous when you hear that some of the game ideas for the new add-on are going to require multiple Move wands, some will require the navigation controller and a Move wand, and pretty much everything requires the EyeToy camera which is another $30. If you take all of the controllers required to be able to play all of the games that are to be released on the Move, then it's costing near $170 for just one person.

I can't wait to hear more about how the games are performing, and I can't wait until they redesign the Move Wand. Currently, the wand has a big pink ball on the end of it, making it look like some kind of sex toy. No thanks.
