PlayStation Move Controller is a Cheap Cellphone, Minus Calling Capabilities

On one hand, the Move controller is a very pricey gaming controller. On the other paw, a tear-down revealed "it's quite the bang for the buck," with a processor, accelerometer, gyroscope, Bluetooth, vibrating motor and MEMS compass tucked inside.

iFixit's rip-apart didn't reveal much that we didn't already know about the spec, but apparently it was dead easy to open it up—good news for home-tinkerers. While the vibrating motor can be peeled off somewhat, it's still fastened down to the motherboard, along with the LED, charge contacts and EXT cables. The 1320mAh lithium-ion battery, however, can be disconnected.

Cool. I still don't like the PlayStation Move. It's just the Wii with Ping-pong balls.

They say it's cheap like it's a bad thing, yet the system it uses is better than what the Wii uses and can get a more accurate position on where the controller is.

I really don't think that thing is going to surpass the Wii... can't believe how far down Playstation has gone in the past few years.

I have always had a soft spot for Playstation, I am so glad I have a PS3 over a 360. But to be honest, I didn't even know there was a move controller. Research time!
