Remember that rumor a couple years back of PS3 motion control gaming being based around a pull-apart DualShock 3
? Well, perhaps it wasn't such a wild idea after all. No DualShock 3s have been harmed in the making of Move
, but Joystiq
has just confirmed that you can actually use the existing controller for Move gaming instead of springing for the Navigation Controller if you'd like. Obviously, you'll be one-handing the DualShock, not quite as comfortable as the Move's tiny, dedicated quasi-nunchuck, but it saves you $30 for your hassle. You'll only have access to the d-pad or four face buttons, depending on which side you choose, but interestingly, the Nav Controller's X and O buttons are redundant with the full Move wand, so hopefully this won't impact gameplay too greatly.
