Along with that Surround Sound System, Sony also revealed more about the upcoming Move motion controllers for PlayStation 3.

While originally slated for a spring 2010 release, Sony pushed the launch timeline to fall when presenting the Move controllers at GDC 2010 in March.

Then yesterday at E3 2010 in Los Angeles, we got a detailed roadmap, price guide and listing of games compatible with the Move controller for PS3.

The Move motion controllers will be rolled out this fall, starting in Europe on September 15 for €39.99, then in North America on September 19 for $49.99 USD, and then finally in Japan (which usually always gets the cool stuff first) on October 21 for ¥3,980. An optional PlayStation Move navigation controller (meant to be paired with the motion controller) will be launched the same days in those regions as well for €29.99$29.99 USD and ¥2,980, respectively.

Gamers can also pick the Move up with one of two bundles. The low-end set includes one Move controller with a demo disc, a PlayStation Eye camera and the Sports Champions Blu-ray disc game for $99.99. The high-end bundle for $399 will get you all of the above plus an actual PlayStation 3 console.

The PlayStation Eye camera can be picked up separately for $39.99, as can a charging dock for the Move controllers for $29.99 and a "shooting attachment" for $19.99.
