PlayStation Move is Priced For Profit

July 10, 2010Written by Zak Islam

Despite it taking Sony almost 4 years to earn a profit on the PlayStation 3, their upcoming motion controller, the PlayStation Move, is priced to make profit from the get go.

Speaking with Develop, Sony Worldwide Studios head, Shuhei Yoshida, stated:

We are pricing Move as if we are launching a new platform. So because the install base of Move will help third party studios create games for it, we benefit by helping those third-parties. But we are not losing money with each one we sell.

The PlayStation Move controller will cost $49.99. Other peripherals can also be purchased such as the optional navigation sub controller and the PlayStation Move gun.
