Gaming enthusiasts, take note. Sony’s PlayStation Move, the motion-sensing game controller platform for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) video game console, is all set to hit Indian stores. Quick! To the price details first. Considering the price of PS3 in the Indian market, the price of motion controller does not seem over the top:

  • Move motion-controller will have a price tag of Rs. 2,499.
  • Move sub-controller aka Navigation Controller will cost you Rs. 1,899.

In addition, the company is planning to launch a Starter bundle for Indian gamers that will incorporate the Move controller, Eye camera, Starter disc with Move game demos – all for Rs. 3,650.

For, the uninitiated, the Navigation Controller enables players to navigate in-game characters in select PlayStation Move games and is considered a must-have for avid gamers. This supplementary controller adds directional buttons, an analog stick, and two shoulder buttons into the Move’s control scheme. The PlayStation Eye Camera, on the other hand, works with the motion controller to accurately read each player’s position and translates a player’s moves into the game. In other words, it allows players to create a lifelike avatar of themselves in compatible games. The device also doubles as a video chatting solution.

From the available pricing details of the Move, it appears the Eye Camera will not be available separately. For, hardcore gamers, therefore, it might make sense to choose the Starter bundle.
