The Move looks like a wireless microphone festooned with the familiar PlayStation square, triangle, circle, and x buttons. It also has couple of other buttons, including a trigger like the one found on the Wii remote. The Move’s distinguishing characteristic is a plastic sphere on top of it. This lighted ping pong ball is what the Eye camera uses to track the controller’s movement and changes color, presumably to make it easier for the Eye camera to follow it (or to just make it look cool).
The Move is a huge step for Sony and will result in an explosion of games that you’ve never seen before, at least on the PS3. Already, dozens of third-party publishers have signed up to develop games for it so when Sony releases it this holiday season for under $100, there should be no shortage of ways to play around with it.
