Canadian Retailer Prices PlayStation Move Controller at $59.99
Update: Gadget Show head Jason Bradbury has also http://twitter.com/JasonBradbury/status/13974039565 that PlayStation Move will launch this September, to quote: ".. another thing I was meaning to say. Sept for Playstation Move!!! I'm sure of it. Can't say why. Just.. September 2010."
Today Engadget.com reports that Canadian retailer http://www.gamestop.ca/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=255736 has priced Sony's upcoming PlayStation Move Motion Controller at $59.99, however, the premature listing now appears to be mysteriously removed.
Sony previously stated that the pricepoint of a PlayStation Move starter kit will be around $100 US and will include a PlayStation Eye camera, a game and a Move controller... meaning the listing above likely referred to a single Move controller.
To quote: Sony's been pretty fuzzy on pricing for the PlayStation Move - we've only really heard "under $100" for the full package with controller and camera - but it looks like the numbers are starting to solidify, as Gamestop Canada has the controller itself now listed for $59.99.
How that number will translate into a US price is obviously up in the air, but Sony's MSRPs tend to be the same or similar across the US and Canada, so we'd say we've at least got a reasonable estimate of how much this thing is going to cost.
We'd also guess that this points to a full package price of $99, but we'll see - Sony's got months before the Move's planned holiday launch to tweak all these numbers."
