Video: PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter - Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4
Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager Richard Ho has posted up a video today of the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter featuring Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: My name is Richard Ho and I'm part of the SCEA marketing team that has brought you familiar peripherals such as the DUALSHOCK 3, Bluetooth Headset and Surround Sound System.
Back in December we showed you the new PlayStation Move sharp shooter and its compatibility with Killzone 3.
Today, we took some time to walk you through the sharp shooter's anatomy and show you how it works in action with two of our most anticipated games - Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs.
The PlayStation Move sharp shooter's authentic design allows you to literally take aim and move into the firefight with the most intuitive and immersive control experience for shooter games. For those of you FPS fans on the fence about the sharp shooter, here are a few things to consider:
Developers for Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 have created their games with the sharp shooter in mind. There are customization screens available to adjust the sharp shooter settings which will allow for a perfect gaming experience.
The PlayStation Move sharp shooter enables easy access to the navigation controller and features easily accessible buttons (use of the extension connector to map the motion controller buttons onto the body of the gun). Extra features such as the reload button, pump-action grip, and firing mode selector give you additional in-game options to play with.
The digital trigger allows for short pulls - meaning faster firing compared to manual triggers. An adjustable shoulder stock increases comfort for those long play sessions. Finally, you can customize the gun with included Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 stickers to suit your taste.
With the more than 50 supported PlayStation Move games available, there's definitely something for everyone to enjoy. For the hardcore gamers, rest assured that Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 will not disappoint!
The sharp shooter is only $39.99 (MSRP) and will be available at the time Killzone 3 launches on Feb 22, 2011. We can't wait for you to test out the sharp shooter for yourselves. When you do, let us know what you think!

Wow ... this is so much better then the Wii zapper!
Nice, a plastic retainer for a move controller for 59,95 € here in Germany. I'm very amused !
/ Irony off
It will be interesting to see how these hold up in online play.
Does anyone think COD will add a Move update to allow use for this?
becuase that's the only practical use for me. not to mention it would be badass.
Wow... just saw the price of this beauty... 60 euros :|
That's the same as a Sixaxis controler
I played the KZ3 BETA with just the move controller and it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to control. I don't no if it was just me or what but everything is inverted and just messy.. Couldn't even find a way to change that :S
863dj: Nah they said there wasen't going to be move support, but I do think the game supports kinect. figures...
Don't you just love expensive time delays between control inputs that's exactly what the playstation move does oh yeah the Kinect sucks worse doesn't even work right for me (6'4) I need to be like 15 feet away and people have that big of a living room.
here is a little trophy that should be put in KZ3 and Socom 4 "YOU JUST KILLED A MOTION CONTROLLER NUB 1 Platinum"
What ever happened to the Guncon3? I thought it was the "official" PS3 light gun and got suckered into buying time crisis 4 with the gun like 3 years ago and since then only ONE other game has come out and it's another short time crisis (Razing Storm)
well the wiimote and nunchuck works really well for fps games making it alot easier to move and aim at the same time while giving access to the buttons. It'll be good to see this kind of control system on a console with some graphical grunt.
