Local PlayStation Move pricing and release date confirmedBy Tom Manners 5 August 2010 | Categories: news
Incredible Connection today announced official local pricing and a release date for Sony’s highly anticipated PlayStation Move motion control system.
According to the retailer’s monthly newsletter “the Playstation Move will be available at Incredible Connection stores from the 15th of September. The Start Up package will cost R699.95 and the Stand alone version will be R449.”
This is considerably less than Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect system, which brings similar functionality to the Xbox 360. In July Microsoft South Africa announced that the Kinect sensor with the ‘Kinect Adventures’ gaming bundle, which is similar to the sporting bundle which Nintendo packages with its Wii console, for R1 999.99.
In June Sony announced at the annual E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles that the Move bundle, which also includes a number of motion control capable games, for $99 (R750).
This means that South African PlayStation 3 owners will be able to purchase the Move bundle for R51 less than we had originally predicted, a rarity for an imported product.
