Bevy Of PlayStation Move Bundles

Come this September, you’ll have your choice from three ways of getting your motion control-action on with your PlayStation 3. Depending on your threshold for colorfully phallic controllers and reasonably priced peripherals, this may or may not excite you.

To actually play with full PlayStation Move capabilities, you’ll require a bright light-up lollipop—err, I mean, a PlayStation Move controller, a PlayStation Eye camera, and a PlayStation 3 console. If you have none of those things, the first bundle combines all three of those components together with a copy of the Sports Champion game and a demo disc of other PlayStation Move games for $399.99. It’s (brilliantly) called the “PlayStation 3 Sports Champion Move Bundle.”

Next is the “PlayStation Move Bundle,” particularly packaged together for those of you that already have a PS3 and are simply looking to either get rid of $99.99 or get a Move controller, a PlayStation Eye, Sports Champion, and the Move demo disc. In all likelihood, you’ll probably be doing both.

Lastly, Sony is also offering the Move controller by itself for $49.99 and the PlayStation Move Navigation Controller (I’ll just call it the nunchuk) for $29.99. While the actual Move controller is absolutely required for Move games, the Navigation controller is ostensibly just the left half of a DualShock 3 controller as, according to the PlayStation Blog, Move players can do all the same things with the nunchuk as they can with the DualShock 3.

All in all, this is largely pleasing to my thrifty eye. The PlayStation Eye itself usually comes in at around $30, and, assuming Sports Champion would have otherwise been a $60 release title, it seems like either of the two bundles is a heck of a deal. Of course, that depends entirely on your desire to shoot bows and arrows with your PS3.

    I agree. The $99.99 price isn’t too bad really. We might pick this up sometime. I think we are getting Kinect first though.

    • Same here. The Kinect just seems so much more intriguing and fresh to me.
