Sony's pricing of PlayStation Move is pretty clever. They can get away with saying that the Move experience costs less than $100, since the Sports Champions bundle -- which comes with the game, the PlayStation Eye camera, and the wand -- retails for $99.99. (And if you already have the camera, the wand itself is $49.99.) But technically, in order to have access to the full range of Move games, you'll want to shell out an additional $29.99 for the Navigation Controller (i.e., the Move's analog of the Wii's Nunchuk).

Thankfully, there's a cheaper solution, although it's less than ideal. PlayStation Move software engineer Anton Mikhailov affirmed at E3 that the DualShock 3 and Navigation Controller are interchangeable; you can hold the DualShock 3 in your left hand like you would the Navigation wand, so a controller that you already own will function just as well as one that costs an extra thirty bucks. (It's not confirmed that the Sixaxis controller will work, too, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't, since the DualShock 3 is literally a Sixaxis with vibration functionality added.)

I just tried holding my DualShock 3 in my left hand alone, and I have to say, it's not all that comfortable. Then again, if I were to buy Move, I think I'd rather deal with this relatively minor issue than spend another thirty dollars. You can decide for yourself when Move launches on September 19th.

Incoming bias! Prior to the DualShock 4, I've never been a fan of Sony's controllers. My thumbs always bumped against each other when I circle-strafed, my fingers slipped off the convex triggers and thumbsticks, etc. We just ...more
