What games are coming out that support Move?

Tons of games are on the way, with many designed purely for Move. Various other titles have support for Move control. For a full list of compatible games, past, present and future, check out our PS3 Move game schedule. Here's a few tasters of what's to come:

The Shoot

The Shoot

TV Superstars is a reality TV game, while The Shoot is an on-the-rails shooter that takes place on a film set. Sports Champions is a bionic, HD version of Wii Sports, with the boxing element taken out, made more visceral and released separately as The Fight: Lights Out. Start the Party is a compendium title with an emphasis on augmented reality.

Pretty much all the major games publishers have also lined up to say they're working on Move-capable titles.

How many controllers can I have?

As many as you like, but you'll only be able to connect four of them to the PS3 at once. That's four devices - a motion controller and a navigation controller count as two devices, not one as is the case with the Wii. That's the downside with connecting the navigation controller wirelessly, rather than through a cable to the motion controller.

What if I'm left handed?

The Playstation Move can be calibrated for left-handed people.

Start the Party

How much does it all cost?

A Starter Pack that includes a motion controller, EyeToy camera and games disc will set you back £45, this doesn't include a navigation controller - it can be bought separately for £25. A bundle which includes the Starter Pack plus a 320GB PS3 and Sports Champions is available at £285. More bundles will no doubt be available to suit different needs. ®
