Sony WWS VP in the US, Scott Rhode, has said shovelware software for PlayStation Move is a big “concern”.

But speaking with Joystiq, the exec says it’s pretty much going to be a non-concern at launch.

“It’s obviously a concern of ours as well,” said Rhode. “But, we’ve taken advantage of the fact that it is a PS3. Sports Champions, for example, has been in development for a while. We’re not announcing it yet, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the scope that’s offered in that title.

“These are not just one-off, ‘hey, play table tennis for fun.’ There’s an overall objective that crosses over all the different events in that title, and there’s a lot of long-term play value in there.”

Earlier this week, Sony announced the name of the motion controller, as well showed off new games for it. More on the controller is to come at E3. Catch up on this week’s announcement here.
