At its E3 2010 press conference this year, Sony superciliously aggrandized its PlayStation3 Move platform with Kevin Butler’s bombastic messages from the future (again!), and then demonstrated its capabilities with some live gameplay of Sorcery and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (lite version on Move demo disc). Calling it "a new product that will allow consumers to literally move into the game", Sony revealed both pricing and availability of its new technology, unlike Nintendo and Microsoft.
