Some fresh details about the new PlayStation Move controllers are here. You may recall that Sony had announced the PlayStation VR Move Controller Twin Pack back in June with a $100 price tag.
However, recently some signs were spotted that the company is preparing a different model.
And now EB Games Australia has revealed that this controller double pack is set to be released on October 13 and will include two Move controllers, two wrist straps and two USB cables — they don’t call it a pack for nothing!
Sony says that it has designed these new controllers specifically for VR, and recommends users to buy these new Move controllers because the older ones may fail due to the age of their internal batteries.
In fact, as the product description for the Twin Pack states, the controllers will be used for some PlayStation VR games, but not all:
“Whilst not required for PSVR titles, the move controllers will bring the best experience whilst playing VR titles that will utilize control. Nearly all PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers and several games will deliver an enhanced experience that further immerses gamers with the use of peripherals such as the Move controllers.
For example, Batman: Arkham VR can be played without Move controllers, however you would be holding DualShock Controllers in each hand so the PS4 camera could see the light bar for the movement of each hand.”
So it looks like these new Move controllers will be required for the best experience on PS VR.
The only question that remains is whether to buy this Twin Pack, or get them in the more expensive PlayStation VR launch bundle.
