Sony has officially revealed its PlayStation 3 motion controller, and it's not called the rumor "Arc." Nope, it's PlayStation Move. 

The controller will be offered in a number of flavors to consumers. The Move controller itself will be offered as a standalone product for those that already own the the PlayStation Eye, which is require to use the controller. A "started kit" will also be made available, which will include the controller, the Eye, as well as a game; Sony is shooting for this kit to come in at under $100. 

In its promo video, Sony showed off some of the game's software which included a wide range of games, including: a dancing title; table tennis; a bare-knuckles gritty fighting game; a sword and shield game not unlike that seen at E3 last year (with graphical upgrades); a light-gun style shooting game; Electronic Arts' upcoming Tiger Woods title; updates for LittleBigPlanet and EyePet; and the upcoming SOCOM 4.

Also revealed is a nunchuk-style second controller Sony is calling the "sub controller." A representative from Zipper Interactive showed off the use of this secondary controller, which will be fully supported SOCOM 4.
