PlayStation Move Bundle: Final Retail Unboxing

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 02, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

You may have seen some new impressions of PlayStation Move recently. A number of sites, both gaming and mainstream, received their press kits last week, hence the new reviews. We’ve been linking out to many of them on the sidebar, and we’ll fully recap on Sunday’s What We Read.

But what about you, the customer? How will your Move experience begin? We just got in the final retail packaging for the PlayStation Move Bundle. Here’s what you get in the box:

Like we said in the video, the included demo disc is so stuffed with content – 11 games! – that we decided to make a whole seperate post on it. Look for that one soon.

Lol nice I think this is Sony’s first-ever official unboxing of a product. If not first ever then surely first on the PS.Blog! :) My Move controller’s been pre-ordered for a while (already have the Eye thanks to EoJ), contemplating if I should get the Nav controller in place of my DS3…

Confused about the release date… seems every store will have this for sale the 17th not the 19th as mentioned in the video. Has it changed?

It’d be nice if the controller came with a game seeing how I already have a PS eye….

Will the demo’s eventually end up on the PSN? I already have the PS Eye so I won’t be getting the bundle. I hate to miss out on the demo’s.

I already have a PS Eye, is there a bundle without the Eye?

    No. Currently, we are only offering the hardware and software bundles which both include the PS Eye camera.

Why is there not a usb cable in the box? It should at least be in the starter kit. If the bluetooth headset can get one, so can this.

@12 There is no bundle without the eye but you can get the controller and the game separately

Put down the money for the 99.99 pack and a nav(traded in my 360 for it back when the slim 360 first came out).

I’m wondering what’s on that disck

+ MarinoBrea on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:28 pm said:

It’d be interesting to see someone playing with the Dualshock in one hand, since they say that bundle is “all that you need”.

+ austinite04 on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:29 pm said:

Why NOT include the ALL important Analog controller??? That is sony Nintendo of Sony.. I hated the wii for a reason, everything I wanted in the first place out of the box cost an extra fee… :-(

I MAY get this since I already have a ps eye from EoJ which btw, I haven’t played eoj since a week after i got it.. when it Launched.. So thats why i’m waiting on this one.. I do like it for having something to hold unlike XB Kinect.. But at least give us analog controllers, I dont wanna hold my ds3 in one hand, i might break it..

    Nope, they’re just demos. Sports Champions has a full slate of Trophies, including Platinum.

So will the demos from the demo disc be available on the PS Store? I already have the Eye so I’m just gonna get a Move (maybe 2) and Sports Champions (wish it had online).

+ GreyLynx on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

@austinite04 all PS3 consoles including this bundle come with a Dualshock 3

+ wontbesilenced on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:34 pm said:

I heard a rumor that the evil p!r@tes found a security hole in the Move that allows you play unsigned games.

Firmware 3.50 will include a patch to disable all Move functionality to protect the system.

Yeah, I’m still bitter about the loss of OtherOS functionality. And this is obviously not true (yet) but I wouldn’t put this past Sony.

Of course Karma reigns supreme, and you are going to get what you deserve. You know, since you can now officialy copy games to a hard drive. You dug your own grave, no sympathy here.

Y is sports champions eye pet and so many other games releasing on sept 7 when the ps move n navigator are both releasing sept 17 or 19 one those 2 days. Well neways why are those games been release a week early when it requires the ps move. Pretty st**** if u ask me big fail only Sony would do that

+ barnaclejoe on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:37 pm said:

Ah.. well, I already bought the PS Eye much earlier in the PS3 lifecycle, because of the promises that it would provide so many awesome gameplay opportunities.

….then… yeah, not a whole lot came out for it.

But then the Move comes out! Awesome.. But… I guess since Sony assumes no one bought the move, anyone who already has it has to buy Sports champions at FULL PRICE…

WTF.

That’s okay Sony, I don’t feel TOTALLY RIPPED OFF!

In today’s terrible economy, couldn’t Sony have made this a little more affordable, or, include some kind of incentive or discount to purchase it at a lower price?

+ MarinoBrea on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:40 pm said:

Also, don’t you think $400 is too much to ask? I mean, what’s your real target with that bundle? Not casual gamers trying to decide for this instead of $200 Wii, are they?

I suggested you should have made a bundle matching 1:1 everything the Wii packs inside. That would mean leave the Dualshock 3 out, include a Move controller, a Nav controller, PSeye and Sports Champion. Why 320GB for the casual audience that isn’t going to appreciate that kind of value? Bundle a 40GB PS3 if anything (10x more than the ridiculous 4GB X360) and it’s 100% more storage than a Wii for sure), and let them know they can easily upgrade the HDD.

Sell that bundle for $300, and you’ll see how you catch some of the Wii’s audience, and at the same time you’ll sell more Dualshocks which retail higher than the Nav controller. The important thing here is building up a installed base quickly, and you’re giving the potential customers everything they actually need for a competitive price. Save costs on HDD and that DS3 which is expensive and rather clumsy paired with the Move, and lower the costs to capture the audience you should be entirely focused on with the Move.

+ Jeigh on September 2nd, 2010 at 3:42 pm said:

Unfortunately, one thing that you may or may not acknowledge in those reviews you are touting is that most say that the experience is only partial/incomplete without a second Move controller. One thing you SHOULD bring up is that most say that the Nav controller really isn’t necessary- just optional, which should at least put aside some of the complaints about pricing.

My ideal bundle: 2 move controllers and The Fight or Sports Champions. $100-120
