With games like Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 specifically being built with the PlayStation Move in mind, there may be some hardcore gamers out there who want to try out motion gaming. Fret not gamers, your prayers have been answered.
Launching simultaneously with the retail edition of SOCOM 4: US Navy Seals will be the just announced Full Deployment Edition of the tactical squad-based shooter. Now this edition of the game won’t come with any in-game unlocks or collectible items, but something a lot more useful. This version of SOCOM 4 will not only come with the game, but a PlayStation Move, Navigation controller, PlayStation Eye, AND the PlayStation Move Sharpshooter attachment. That’s right, the entire PlayStation Move setup specifically for your SOCOM needs. How much would you expect to pay for this whole package? It comes to you at the value price of $149.99. John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment of America, is very excited about the PlayStation 3’s hardcore motion lineup.
Given the high level of anticipation for SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, we wanted to provide the most immersive offering to fans of the franchise, who seek to experience the next evolution of motion gaming. With the precision of the motion controller and the intuitive design of the sharp shooter, PlayStation Move delivers on that promise. When used in tandem with the stereoscopic 3D support for games like SOCOM 4 and Killzone 3, it results in an experience only possible on the PlayStation 3 system.
The PlayStation Move retails at $50, with the Navigation Controller and PlayStation Eye both selling for $30 in stores. The Sharpshooter is $40, and SOCOM 4 will be the standard $59.99. All together this adds up to $210, a sixty dollar difference if all these items were bought separately. You could buy an entire PS3 game for all the money you saved! Why not Killzone 3? Or any of the newly announced Greatest Hits titles? What it comes down to though, is that the PlayStation 3 offers you an unbelievable bang for your buck.
