Sony Unveils Official Sharp Shooter Attachment for PlayStation Move

December 9, 2010 Written by Sebastian Moss

The PlayStation Move may be a super-precise take on motion controller gaming, and with its buttons, the trigger makes the controller perfect for First Person Shooters, but it doesn’t exactly look like a gun. Want a bit more realism when you game? Don’t worry, Sony has announced a “Sharp Shooter Attachment” for the Move – just in time for Killzone 3.

Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced the official sharp shooter attachment for the PlayStation Move, coming February 2011. The peripheral will support Killzone 3, Time Crisis: Razing Storm, SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs and Dead Space Extraction, as well as many future PlayStation Move titles.

John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing, SCEA said:

PlayStation Move was designed with the goal of providing the most engaging and intuitive motion gaming experience possible, from a diverse range of genres.


We’ve already seen a tremendous response to PlayStation Move’s launch lineup. With a heritage built on innovation and a significant lineup of shooter and action titles on the horizon, we’re truly evolving motion gaming with unmatched precision and a deeper sense of immersion than has ever been offered. When coupled with stereoscopic 3D support, such as in Killzone 3, the PlayStation Move sharp shooter represents a new step toward the ultimate goal of any cutting-edge video game: placing players directly in the game.

On top of that, a new “Jungle Green” DualShock 3 controller will also be available in February 2011 for $54.99.
