Video: Sony’s PS3 Move, with a Wiimote

Sony finally shared details of the new PlayStation 3 motion control system that’s going to battle it out with Microsoft’s Project Natal (and the Wii) this holiday season.

The word from San Francisco, where it was shown last night at the Game Developers Conference, is that it’s fun to play.

But it sure looks familar — just like Wii controllers, including a primary controller topped with a ball that reminds me of the Jack in the Box antenna globes. A secondary controller is pretty close to the Wii nunchuck, but with Bluetooth wireless instead of a cable.

Starter kits with a sensor and a game will cost less than $100.

Here’s a Sony video with game demonstrations via Joystiq, which has a big roundup on the gadget.
