PS3 motion controller named 'Move', new details surfaces

Posted by: Ahmed Al-Dajani 11/Mar/2010
At the Game Developers Conference 2010, Sony has finally unveiled the official name for the upcoming PS3 motion controller. Called 'Move', is a motion-sensing peripheral, which in conjunction with the PlayStation Eye Camera allows precise motion-controlled video gaming on the PlayStation 3.  
The Move can be paired with the "Subcontroller", a nunchuk-like device that sports an analog stick and d-pad, which allows the Move to be used with more "traditional" titles like first-person shooters or role-playing games. The Move will be available in three packages: a standalone Move (for consumers that already own a PlayStation Eye camera), a bundle that includes the Move and PlayStation Eye, and a hardware pack that includes the Move, PlayStation Eye and PlayStation 3 console. Pricing details for the standalone pack and PS3 bundle are yet to be announced, but we know that The Move and the PlayStation Eye option will cost $99.  
In fiscal year 2010, Sony will release over twenty games dedicated to or that support the controller. The PlayStation Move will be released sometime this Fall.

Is this serious? if it is I really hope it gets canceled. The reason I and most of the people I know bought a playstation was because it had nothing in common with the Wii. I don't know which is worse this or the Wii-mote. Wii-mote: +"original gameplay" +game compatibility -crappy sensorbar with poor detection. -poor motion detection from the mote itself. -needs motion+ to get decent detection. (I personally don't know how much this helps) -bad button layout. -wire between mote and nunchuck. PS3 ripoff-mote +no wire between mote and nunchuck. +button layout seems slightly better judging from the picture above. =how well will the motion detection work? (not expecting much) =will it need a sensor bar? (big + if no) =how well will games be compatible with this controller? -unoriginal/rip off -a light bulb...? (anyone knows what that is about?) I wonder if Xbox is still keeping a little sanity and won't join in on this they already have project natal which I don't think will be a success at least not for the hardcore/pro/full-time or just those above average gamers but who knows maybe its a big hit.
