To quote from VG247.com (linked above): The Motion Controller itself will be £34.99, while the Sub Controller will be £24.99. The PlayStation Eye will cost £24.99.

There will also be a £49.99 bundle featuring the Motion Controller, the Eye and a starter disc.

PlayStation Move Starter Pack

The disc will contain, as well as an instructional video, the following demos on the disc:

•Sports Champions
•Start the Party!

Sony's been keen to point out this morning that the Sub Controller isn't necessary to play Move-enabled games: you can use a DualShock instead.

Sony Expands PlayStation Licensing Program for Non-Game Items

100°
222w ago - Last year Sony first announced the official licensing program for PlayStation peripherals, and today they have expanded the program to non-game items.

Essentially the company is granting rights to use the PlayStation logo and symbolic triangle, circle, x and square marks on t-shirts, accessories and other items.

The packaging for such items will show the same "Official Licensed Product" logo that's applied to licensed gaming gear.

To quote from Next-gen.biz (linked above): "Approved licensees can design products using the PS3, PSP, PSPgo, PS2 and PlayStation logos, as well as the iconic triangle, circle, x and square marks. They can also use the Official Licensed Product logo on product packaging and other promotional tools.

To date the licensing program has allowed manufacturers to use PlayStation logos on game peripherals and accessories developed for use with Sony's gaming systems. Launched in 2009, 45 licensees have released over 123 items."
 

Netflix Adds Search Functionality on Sony's PlayStation 3

100°
223w ago - Recently we reported that Netflix will be going discless on the PS3 by October, but today JoyStiq (linked above) revealed that Netflix also offers PlayStation 3 users the ability to search through their entire video library.

To quote: "Netflix just became a lot easier to use on the PS3. No, you still need a disc (for now), but the application has been stealthily upgraded with the ability to search for and watch videos from the entire Instant library.

For example, typing the letter "A" quickly revealed Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Live and Wii versions of Netflix don't appear to have been updated with this feature yet. Xbox owners will have to wait until November."
