At least 15-20 Move-enabled games will be available at launch (including Killzone 3), with approximately 40 titles slated for holiday season.

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told TG Daily that the advent of Sony's PlayStation Move platform signaled a "true evolution" in motion based gaming.

"Move finally allows developers to create high-definition motion based games that target both the casual and core gaming audience.

"Through combining both video and motion based control, Sony's PlayStation Move is able to immerse both the core and mainstream gamer into true high-definition motion, highly interactive gaming experiences."
