Sony has already unveiled plenty of third-party “weapon” accessories but now they unveiled a new one which they made by itself and will come on Feb 2011 at the launch of Killzone 3 for $39.99.The new shooters game friendly attachment, called PlayStation Move sharp shooter and new “Jungle Green” DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
The new PlayStation Move sharp shooter houses both the motion controller and navigation controller to give you “most intuitive and immersive control experience ever found in a shooter game.” It is equipped with a responsive digital trigger, adjustable shoulder stock and has incorporated a firing mode selector, realistic pump-action and a reload button. Sony says that it gives convenient access to the navigation controller and was designed specifically with games such as Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, but of course you can expect many more upcoming games that will work with this “SMG” as well.
Its official colour is ‘Jungle Green’ although that’s mixed with black casing on the rear side of the pad. Otherwise a regular DS3 controller, the new colour will hit US stores in February along the flagship PS3 shooter for $54.99.
We suspect Sony may bundle the game and the controller together at some point, but there’s no word on that yet. Nor are there details of a UK release.
