Two of the UK’s biggest retailers started taking pre-orders today for PlayStation Move, which is set for release in Europe on September 15.

Play is listing the PS Move itself for £39.99, while the Navigation controller is listed at £29.99. The starter pack bundle meanwhile is listed for £49.99 which seems a really good price, considering it includes a Move controller, starter disk and the PlayStation Eye.

Amazon are also listing the same products, although it has went £1 cheaper on Move and the Navigation controller, while it lists the Starter pack at £59.99.

Sony are creating other bundles, one of which includes the PS Eye, PS Move and the Navigation controller.

Move’s out in the US on September 19.

    I dont understand Sony, You will need ALL 3 if you want to play games using Move. They should have announced the bundle that contains all 3 first and then followed it with the individual pricing of each.

    Said in the other thread, but I’ll be waiting for a price drop. A lot of the games need two wands per player, and I’ll want at least two players worth… so that’s £150+ straight off, or £135 if I swapped wands for nunchucks.

    Blech.

    The sub controller / move and camera will also be in a pack for $99.99 which is about £70.

    Thats quite good value. :)

    @7: Knowing Sony, you could be looking at a 12 month wait before there’s even a hint of a price drop.

    All of that Joe for $99.99 isn’t bad at all. Like I said I’m buying two. I have three PS3′s already so 3 PS eyes will come in handy too I guess :D

    That entirely depends how well this stuff sells. Look at the PS3 for instance.

    @6 – Which is how they’re going to market it. “PlayStation Move (from) $49.99!” It’s kinda genius, because Microsoft might not have that luxury. I’m sold on all this stuff. Put my preorders in earlier. 1 x Starter Kit, 1 x Move, 1 x Navi. Brilliant.

    I doubt there will be a price drop, but there may be better deals/pack-ins or better reductions on the RRP.

    I have a camera so I’ll want a couple of wands and a sub.

    How much is that for a family of 4 then?

    Fucking expensive, is the answer.

    yeah, its a lot of money to buy at all once. I would consider this a Christmas gift/Birthday option for people with kids.
    As for me, there are only 4 of us (Me, Wifee, Bro and Sis) that i need to worry about.
    I will probably first just buy the starter kit and an additional Move+Navi setup.
    From what i saw at E3, most games that require 2 Move controllers, 1 of those controllers can be replaced with the Navi attachment. Maybe im wrong though.

    @14 yea I hear you. I would hate to have extra add-ons I didn’t need around the house too.

    @17
    You would never need more than 4 controllers + 2 navis. It won’t support 4 + 4 – it doesn’t really need to. 4 player would be with 4 controllers. 2 player would be with 2 x 2 controllers or 2 x (controller + navi).

    Pick up your basics to start you off and expand as you find you need/want to with pack ins and deals.

    They need a bundle for the controller with a sub-controller for people with an Eyetoy already.

    Also, I think they’re giving way to many options here which could well hurt games design as the potential audience, if you go beyond a single controller, could be small.

    They thing about Wii is that everyone has at least the ‘mote plus the nunchuck.

    Given it doesn’t apparently have any motion sensing elements the nunchuck (sorry sub-controller) cost seems way too steep.

    Those prices seem steep compared to the Wiimote/nunchuck pricing.

    The controller plus a sub should be 39.99 I’d say.
