time will tell if it's a gimmick or an actual useful fun addon.

I got the Move yesterday and I only have 1 game that works and thats Hustle Kings and its easier with the sixaxis than the move.
So, for the price and only 1 game its not the best atm. If I knew it was so lame now I would've waited a few months for a few more games to come out.
The only good part about the 320 GB Move bundle is it should have 3.40 firmware and a 320gb Hdd. Sony once again pricing a gimmick item well above what it's actually worth.
Got the move with the Champion Sport game that has like 6 games and me and my family had tons of fun. It's pretty dam accurate too and works in 3d space very well. ITS great!

I went and got EyePet AGAIN that works with Move. Pity it wasn't just a patch. Yea, after having a go at that its very good. Very responsive, better than the Wii.
I got the ps move yesterday w/ the sport champion and i like it! but all of the game mode in sports champion can be play w/ one motion controller but some game mode u can play w/ two motion controller for full experience of the ps move ... But it cost me 2 psmove for 100$ 1 game for 40$ and i bought the navigator controller for 30$! Total 170$!! its pricey!!
I would take the navigator controller back and get your $30 back in the bank. All it does is use the left side of sixaxis controller. Nothing more.
If it does come with 3.40, how does one upgrade to 3.41 without using the Sony update process. I'm assuming, using the upgrade process on the PS3 would automatically upgrade you to the latest.
