Original article found here:
http://kotaku.com/5490632/playstation-move-everything-you-need-to-know?skyline=true&s=i



"The Move is a motion-sensing peripheral, which in conjunction with the PlayStation Eye Camera (which is already on the market) allows precise motion-controlled video gaming on the PlayStation 3.

The Move can, in some cases, be paired with the "Subcontroller", a nunchuk-like device that sports an analog stick and d-pad, which allows the Move to be used with more "traditional" titles like first-person shooters or role-playing games.

Unlike the Wii Remote, which is powered by regular batteries (or in cases of third-party solutions a rechargeable battery pack), the Move is fuelled by the same lithium ion battery that runs your PlayStation 3's DualShock 3 controller, meaning it'll have plenty of shelf life between recharges. As a bonus, the Subcontroller also has a lithium ion battery.

Both the Move and Subcontroller are wireless, and will sync with your PlayStation 3 via Bluetooth (with the Move also featuring rumble). At launch, they will be available in black, and black only.
"

So what do you think? Wii mote rip-off, or awesome new idea? I'm sort of baffled at the....large.....ball thing at the end of the right controller. It looks weird.

It's totally a rip-off. They took the Wii's controller and just improved it while changing the colors from white to black. I will totally not buy it... <_<

I can't believe it! Sarcastic tone: Oh yeah guys its not like a Wii remote at all! See it has this lightbulb on the end and uses the PS3 eye not a sensor bar!

Really Sony! Really? You couldn't come up with your own ideas so you steal from other companys. First you think you will shut down Nintendo's Hand-held gaming industry with your sorry PSPGo then you decide to take Nintendo's Wii-Mote paint it black put a lightbulb on the end of it change the button layout and call it yours.

Quite frankly Sony is so expensive with its products that is one of the reasons I have not purchased a PS3 yet.

Yeah good work Sony can wait to see what idea you "come up" with next.

Harsh XD But I had the same thought when I first read the article too. Pretty lame. I'd MUCH rather have the different companies go their own way, and make different/unique innovations in the video game world instead of just ripping off each other.

Shame,Sony. Do they really think that idea thievery will get people to buy their crap? Uh, yeah, I would TOTALLY never play anything Sony related...*quickly hides my Psp and Ps2*

Well, this product is still a total ripoff.I'll bet Sony has an entire cork-board in their office with papers attached to it labeled "ideas we can steal from other companies" xD

no no Dx this is completely different from the wii mote how so? Well according to the article it answers that question.

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM THE WII REMOTE?

While the Move looks similar to Nintendo's pioneering 2006 motion controller, there are key differences, like a reduced button count and what promises to be better motion-sensing.

>< still a rip off. I agrre with Dx and Clover on this one -_-

This is a rip-off! The Playstation Move looks like the Wii Remote,

But the Wii Remote is white, and this is black
And the Wii Remote doesn't have a stupid lightbulb on it

And they must be planning to be the only Game Company open!
