At the EA Showcase we also managed to get our hands on the Sony’s latest motion controller, Move. It is a motion-sensing controller that functions with the help of PlayStation Eye Camera claims to give a 1:1 tracking.
On the design front, PS3 Move is ergonomically designed. The curved shape of the controller sits nicely in the hand and the control keys are placed at adequate distance so you don’t have to reach for the keys with your other hand.
We tested the controller on EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 and the least we can say is, we were impressed. Agreed, it took a bit of time for us to adjust but when it was done, the club of Tiger Woods responded exactly to how we swung the controller, corresponding with the speed of the swing. Imagine playing Cricket with the controller and harnessing PS3’s graphics prowess!
The PS3 Move pack and its individual accessories are available right now but Sony is also expected to launch a 320GB PS3 Slim bundled with PS3 Move Starter Pack this month for a price of around Rs.23,500.
