Sony sets UK PlayStation Move prices

Anticipating VAT rise?

Sony UK will release the PlayStation Move in a bundle pack comprising the motion controller, the PlayStation Eye camera and a trio of games.

The whole lot will cost £50, which is cheaper than the motion controller and Eye bought separately. They will be priced at £35 and £25, respectively.

That's slightly higher than the Euro-to-Sterling price conversion would suggest, based on the European pricing announced yesterday, but Sony may be anticipating the much-predicted VAT rise, to 20 per cent, that will be a key feature of next week's budget.

If it isn't taking the VAT rise on board, it may end up having to put prices up - or take the increase on the chin.

Move's navigation controller accessory will also cost £25. ®
