Following the announcement that the PlayStation Move controller would go on sale from September, major UK retailers Amazon and Play.com have already opened pre-orders.
The new add-ons will be available from September 15. Currently, Play has set pricing for the Move itself at £39.99, the Navigation controller upgrade at £29.99, and a bundle containing Move, a PlayStation Eye and a demo disc sits for £49.99. Amazon asks a pound less for the Move and Navigation, but has bumped the starter pack price to £59.99.
This may be seen as unfavourable pricing for Britain, given the Move is €39.99 in Europe and $49.99 in the US.
Additionally, UK subscription pricing for PlayStation Plus, the premium upgrade to PSN, has now been revealed. 12 months will cost £39.99 (€49.99 in Europe, $49.99 in the US) a period during which Sony claims subscribers will have access to £200-worth of content. If a subscription is not renewed, any games or content downloaded during it will no longer be accessible.
