At the Sony E3 press conference, among the biggest announcements was release dates and pricing for the PlayStation Move motion controller. Topping the bill for Sony and its PlayStation group was its plans to enable 3D gaming right away. Kaz Hirai, the president of Sony’s Networked Products and Services group, touted the company’s “end-to-end” 3D offerings, from its Bravia 3D TVs to its new roster of 3D-enabled games for the PlayStation 3.
Sony announced 20 3-D games would be released for PlayStation 3 by March 2011 while 40 games that use Move, the console’s new motion-control system, would be out for the holiday season.
Among the unveiled 3-D games, which would require a 3-D television to be played in 3-D, were “Motor Storm: Apocalypse,” “Gran Turismo 5,” “Crysis 2,” “Tron Evolution,” “Shaun White Skateboarding” and “Mortal Kombat.”
Sony also announced the Move controller will be available for $49.99 on Sept. 19 in the U.S. while a bundle with the controller, PlayStation Eye camera, console and “Sports Champions” will cost $399.99.
