Officially unveiled this year on March 11, the PlayStation Move Motion Controller is now announced to be first available in Europe from September 15 followed by the US from September 15. The US retail price is announced to be $49.99. There are also two other options as “PlayStation Move Bundle” which includes one PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Eye camera, Sports Champions Blu-ray game and PlayStation Move game demo disc for $99.99 (MSRP) and (for PS3 newcomers) “PlayStation 3 Sports Champion Move Bundle” including all of the previous bundle plus a PS3 system for $399.99 (MSRP).
As to the Playstation Plus, it is Sony’s new paid subscription service. Available from June 29, it will grant PS3 owners several privileges including early access to betas, free and exclusive access to the full versions of certain PS3 and PSN titles including PS One classics and exclusive discounts on PlayStation Store content. The downloadable games will change every month and be playable for a certain period of time until the trial period is over.
There are two options for pricing: a 90-day option for $17.99 and a year-subscription for $49.99. And the cool thing is once you sign up for the first time, you will get the first 3 months for free.
