PS Move Sharpshooter peripheral for Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4
Sony makes a play for motion controller domination with the Socom 4 bundle pack.In my mind, I believe that the first motion based console/peripheral that can make a good game (for example an FPS) will dominate. Both the PS Move and the Kinect have pumped out a bit of shovelware shortly after being released. Now the meat and potatoes are starting to arrive.
Killzone 3 was just released this month and at the same time came the most beautiful peripheral I’ve seen since the Super Scope.
One of the more normal looking gun peripheral I’ve seen to date with a telescoping stock and a top rail for mounting your acog or red dot sights. It also incorporates a pump action front grip for things such as an m203 or masterkey attachment in game. It currently runs for $39.99 and comes with a sticker pack for Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4. But if you can be patient til April you can get the Sharpshooter gun, a PS Move Motion controller, a Navigation controller, the PS Eye, and SOCOM 4 for only $150. If you were to pay for the pieces individually, you’d be looking at about $220.
The video is a good up close look at the gun and all the details incorporated in using it for Killzone 3 including swinging the gun for a melee attack. Epic.
