Furthermore, SCE also announced today the release of two PlayStation Move controller peripherals, “PlayStation MoveCharging Station” and “PlayStationMove shooting attachment,” that will help further enhancing the PlayStation Move experience.

  • PlayStation Move charging station
    By utilizing the “charging station,” users will be able to charge up to two PlayStation Move controllers, motion controller or the navigation controller, at once without having to connect them to the PS3 system. The “charging station” will become available concurrently with the motion controller launch in each region at a RRP of euro 29.99, US$29.99 and 2,480 yen (including tax), respectively.
  • PlayStation Move shooting attachment
    The “shooting attachment,” designed to place the PlayStation Move motion controller horizontally, will allow players to hold the motion controller as if they are holding a gun and to easily aim at an in-game target. The trigger on the attachment is interlocked with the motion controller T button and will enable users to intuitively play the game, not only limited to shooting games but also on games that may require precise button input and control. It will deliver immersive gameplay and will work perfectly with software titles like The Shoot!3 by SCE and Time Crises: Razing Storm by Bandai Namco Games Inc. which is expected to support the attachment. The “shooting attachment” will become available starting this fall in each region at a RRP of euro 14.99, US$19.99 and 1,480 yen (including tax), respectively.

Through the introduction of PlayStation Move controllers, attractive software line-ups and peripherals, SCE will continue to further expand the PS3 platform and create a new world of computer entertainment that is only possible on PlayStation.
