New PlayStation Move Introduced As PlayStation VR Move Controller Twin Pack

It has now been confirmed that the PlayStation Move wands will be reintroduced with PS4 branding as PlayStation VR Move Controller Twin Pack. In Australia at least, it’ll be available as a pack of two controllers for $119.95. It appears that this will be the only way to purchase the Move controllers at the PlayStation VR’s launch. Outside of the rebranded box, It’s not entirely evident if these will be any different to those that launched on PS3. The model number suggests that they may be different, so it’s quite possible to expect Micro-USB charging and potentially rebranded Start/Select buttons. They will launch alongside the console on October 13th.

The product description reads:

“Whilst not required for PSVR titles, The move controllers will bring the best experience whilst playing VR titles that will utilise control. Nearly all PlayStation VR titles will support DualShock 4 controllers and several games will deliver an enhanced experience that further immerses gamers with the use of peripherals such as the Move controllers. For example, Batman: Arkham VR can be played without Move controllers, however you would be holding DualShock Controllers in each hand so the PS4 camera could see the light bar for the movement of each hand”
