Finally Sony has picked the name for their new Motion Controller. Dropping the previous codename "Arc" and going for the name "MOVE". It will also come with an "sub-controller" which looks much like a Wii Nunchuk.
You will also need to own the EyeToy to make use of the MOVE, and Sony promises to you will be able purchase the new controller without the EyeToy, for those that already own it, and also that a complete bundle with EyeToy, MOVE, Sample Game will be packaged for under $100 this up coming Fall season.
Sony is calling their new controller which was showcased with some new games at this week's 2010 Games Developer Conference as "A more precise, immersive, and responsive game experience", and they plan on hitting it hard on the ad budget to kill any possible marketshare which might be taken up by the new Microsoft Natal project, and to put a dent into Nintendo's Money Printing Machines.
For more in-depth of the Move, you can watch the 45-minute GDC demo:

I don't know. -- After watching that full 45 minute demo. -- It make me sick, and the errors and trouble the demo people had in some areas to control the Move does not make much sense. -- I going to continue to fully enjoy my Wii as it is, and enjoy sitting down and playing "Heavy Rain" the old-fashion way with a six-axis controller. -- I don't think I going to waste $100 on this device for my PS3? -- Oh'well Sony is trying. -- Next-up is M$ with their demos of Natal. -- Ugh!
