The Sony PlayStation Move is a set of two controllers that give you motion control gaming above and beyond what the console's current Sixaxis controller offers you and the chance to get into the game as if you were really there.

It's a stick that you wave around in front of your console, the game reacts to your movements and then relays that positioning information on screen meaning you've just swung a golf club or pointed your gun at someone. That's the basic reality of it. In actual fact it's a lot more advanced than that, and is all the better for it.

This second controller is like the Wii Nunchuk and offers you the ability to control your character's movements in-game with an analogue stick you control via your thumb. If you've played on the Wii the whole process for moving around is second nature with the navigation controller operating like a dumb partner to the more intelligent Move controller.

Controllers and how they work are one thing, but what about the games? So far Sony has announced 16 dedicated titles for PlayStation Move available on the day of launch and 40 more slated to hit throughout the holiday season before the year is out, servicing both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

Some titles already are: Sorcery, SingStar Dance, Heroes on the Move, SOCOM 4, Heavy Rain Move Edition, echochrome ii, EyePet, Sports Champions, Tumble, Beat, Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Toy Story 3 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11.
