The PlayStation Move controller is Sony's response to Nintendo's tremendous success with the Wii. Using a combination of internal sensors and the Playstation Eye, the PS3 is able to track the Move's position and orientation to enable Wii-like motion based controls. Both the Playstation Eye and a Move controller are necessary to enable motion controls. For games that require an analog stick, a regular Dual Shock controller can be used, or a more optimized one-handed controller that Sony dubs the PlayStation Move sub-controller.

Probably the most notable physical feature of the Move controller is the large glowing ball at the top. This ball is used by the Playstation Eye to determine the controller's position relative to the TV, and performs other calibration tasks. The ball itself can be set to any RGB color and will probably vary depending on the lighting in the room, and the number of people simultaneously playing.

On the PlayStation Move controller itself there's a large button in the center where your thumb rests. Along the four corners of this central button are the four regular PlayStation buttons (Square, Triangle, X, and O). On the backside of the wand are two triggers in similar style to Xbox 360 triggers, with one trigger button having a concave ramp, while the other is more of a bumper or traditional button.

An improvement on the idea of motion gaming. This looks like what I thought I was getting when I purchased the nintendo wiik

It's a major improvement over the Wii; it's like comparing a Tiger handheld to a PSP. It's far more accurate tracking of motion allows them to use movements that more realistically simulate the movements on screen.

The game support will improve as is the case with all hardware launches. Looks versatile. Hope it is used like the wii mote is on some racing games as a floating steering wheel. Fun!
