Playstation 3 MOVE

The PS3 has a terrific motion gaming experience known as MOVE. It's used to allow the player to move and interact with their character on screen without use of a standard button controller. This system is great to get the player moving around, burning, calories, and really get immersed in the game. It supports realistic motion driven on-screen movement making each and every game you play that much more interactive.
