Sony on PlayStation Move: As good As Dualshock 3

June 11, 2010 Written by Anthony Severino

Ever since the PlayStation Move was first revealed back at last year’s E3, it’s been touted as the most precise motion controller on the market with its 1:1 motion tracking. Such accuracy is possible thanks to the glowing sphere at the top of the PlayStation Move controller when used in conjunction with the PlayStation Eye.

Many early hands-on users of the PlayStation Move complained of latency issues, however, when we tested out the controller we found it to perform with perfection. So just how quick will the PlayStation Move respond to button pressing, waggling and waving?

In a recent interview with ElectronicTheatre, Shuhei Yoshida, President of SCE Worldwide Studios reaffirmed Sony’s intent on having the PlayStation Move be the “de facto” controller alongside the Dualshock 3.

When talking about the PlayStation Move’s precision, Yoshida went on to compare the response time to that of the Dualshock 3 – Sony’s staple PS3 controller.

“the response time that is as good as DUALSHOCK 3”

Yoshida went on to discuss how the PlayStation Move forces developers to “throw away conventional wisdom” on game design and come up with something that is more immersive. Yoshida continued:

“If this cannot be achieved, players will just be happy to stay with using the DUALSHOCK 3”

The PlayStation Move is planned for a fall launch and full details on the launch, including pricing and more are expected next week during Sony’s E3 press conference, which will be live streamed here on PlayStation LifeStyle.

Whether you like it or not, the PlayStation Move and motion controlled games are going to become and integral part of the PS3’s line-up. What are your feelings about the PlayStation Move? Will you be picking it up this fall?
