A UK magazine has published an article stating that Sony's motion-sensing PS3 controller will be "around £45," which is equivalent to about $75 in the US. That's markedly cheaper than some early speculation had suggested.
Playstation fansite TheSixthAxis.com posted a scan of the most recent issue of The Sun magazine, a monthly current events publication based in the UK but with subscribers across several countries.
In an article about what it calls the "Sony Move," it details that it will be "about £45, out later this year." The article goes on to tell Nintendo that it's time for them to "Move over."
This is the first anyone has ever heard of a price point for the Move, and it is a world-renowned magazine reporting the fuzzy £45 price (not some nameless blog). Still, it's far from concrete info.
Gamers will need both a Playstation Move controller and a Playstation Eye ($40) to be able to take advantage of the upcoming PS3 games that use motion-sensing controls. This has led to some trepidation about the Move's viability, depending on how expensive it will be.
$75 is still kind of pricey, but it's better than some early speculation that put the controller at $100 or more. The Move is expected to be released later this year.
