Sony Presents The Move Controller
Wii is having Wiimote, Xbox 360 has Natal and the PlayStation 3 has the Move. Because so, Sony decided to call his own motion controller presented here under the original name of Eye Motion. And it’s a fairly complex controller, composed of three different devices, and labeled as a function somewhere between Natal and the Wiimote with Nunchuk.
More specifically, we have the main rod, 200*46 mm and 145 grams, easily recognizable by light ball on top. This is for main hand, and is the essential component of the Move’s. Its movement (in this case the light ball) is brought before the Board Eye, available for years. And on the other hand will be available on a rod, sold separately, with dimensions of 138*42 mm.
These two rods are providing the user a lot of buttons, and even a mini joystick, and incorporates gyroscopes and accelerometers for all three axes, plus a terrestrial magnetic field sensor. So motion is not brought before the Board only, but all these systems and sensors. And that’s why Sony assures us that Move is the most advanced motion controller.
Both controllers are based on Li-ion batteries for energy, and communicate among themselves and with the PS3 by radio (wireless). The user receives feedback by Move, in the form of vibrations of rods or ball color changing light.
Although Move is largely complete, Sony has decided to release it until the Autumn. And give time to this game studios to make compatible titles. It is hoped that by the end of 2010 a total of 20 games to support Move.
The price for this controller will be under $ 100. It remains to be seen which console will dominate the moving games. Wii from Nintendo is clear the best in this area at this moment.
