With the plethora of Wii-mote add-on attachments available it comes as no surprise to see that Sony’s PlayStation Move controller is set to get the same treatment. It also comes as no surprise that one of the first add-ons for the device was the Move Shooting Attachment aimed at titles like Time Crisis: Razing Storm and The Shoot. Being an official Sony product the unit is slightly better than the bulk of cheap plastic lumps released by third party manufacturers for the Wii, but the company has gone one better with its new PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter Attachment that will hit store shelves alongside the much anticipated Killzone 3 in February.
The Sharp Shooter houses both the motion controller and navigation controller and features a digital trigger, adjustable shoulder stock, firing mode selector, realistic pump-action and a reload button. The motion controller forms the gun barrel while the navigation controller fits into a slot located underneath that provides easy access to the buttons, trigger and navigation joystick.
The unit was designed specifically for first person shooters such as Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs and even comes with sticker packs for both those games. It is also compatible with Time Crisis: Razing Storm and Dead Space Extraction – although there’s probably nothing stopping you using it with EyePet if your virtual pet starts getting on your nerves.
Sony will release the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter in February 2011 priced at US$39.99.
