Sony ‘Pounds’ Out Details for the UK PS Move Launch

July 29, 2010 Written by Thomas Williams

Having already detailed and priced the PlayStation Move controllers here in the US and in Japan, UK gamers were left in the cold in not knowing how much they need to save this September so that they can get their ‘Move on’. We have the details you need plus the contents of the UK PlayStation Move demo disc revealed, inside. Yeah, you know what to do.

For those of you who already own the PlayStation Eye (which is quite a bit of you, thanks to EyePet), the stand alone PlayStation Move controller will cost you £34.99 ($54.00 USD). For those looking for the ultimate edge when using the PS Move, the Navigation controller is priced at £24.99 ($38.00 USD), and the UK’s version of the PS Move starter back comes with (1) PS Move Controller, the PS Eye, and a Starter demo disc for £49.99 ($77.00 USD). No details were revealed about 1st-party software pricing ($39.99 here in the states…DEAL!), however, Sony’s GamesCom press conference is going down on August 19, which will be less than a month before the PlayStation Move hits, expect an explosion of EU Move information to be unleashed.

Last, but not least, here’s what the ‘Starter [demo] disc’ will contain.

  • Sports Champions
  • Start the Party!
  • The Shoot
  • EyePet: Move Edition
  • TV Superstars
  • Tiger Woods PGA TOUR ® 11
  • echochrome ii (PSN)
  • Tumble (PSN)
  • Beat Sketchers (PSN)

Seeing as how Sports Champions is bundled with the PS Move’s US bundle, the content of the US disc could be a different.

Once further details regarding the exact launch titles for the US and UK PlayStation Move are discovered, we here at PlayStation LifeStyle will be sure to give you all the details you need to know so that you’re prepared for the launch of Sony’s newest ‘platform’, The PlayStation Move motion controller on September 19th here in the US, September 15th in EU, and October 21st in Japan.
