Press Release: PS3 INTENSAFIREā„¢

From the minds of gamers. We saw a need in the gaming market. Console and accessory customization is a large part of the gaming world. The problem was that gamers buy mod kits for their controllers only to find out they were too complex to assemble themselves. So we partnered with an engineering team to get a product to the gamers that eliminates the technical curve, and offers more than the standard mod kit does.

206w ago - Update: Gadget Show head Jason Bradbury has also Tweeted 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 GameStop.ca 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.

For those curious, this adapter didn't require any hardware alteration to the PSP or the PS2 controller, as a plug-in was used on the PSP Firmware side of things.

The adapter then makes use of video out and PS2 controller extension cables, along with an ATmega8 microcontroller to handle the signals between the two devices.

Check out a video of the PS2 controller hack in action with a PlayStation Portable below, via YouTube!




 

PlayStation Move Subcontroller CECH-ZCS1U Navigation Controller

210w ago - A few weeks back Sony's PlayStation Move hit the FCC, and today Engadget (linked above) uncovered the subcontroller dubbed the Navigation Controller.

The FCC docs state that it will be officially known by Sony as the CECH-ZCS1U.

To quote: "Sony part number CECH-ZCS1U just hit the FCC's database, and "Navigation Controller" is written in nice bold letters right there on the label.

It's looking like this is official, as the Sony US Web site has been quietly updated with the change, and we think it makes a certain amount of sense, as most 3D games let you aim the camera with your dominant hand and relegate navigation to the other. Like the Motion Controller, Sony's opted for confidentiality on this one."
