At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.

Launching alongside Killzone 3, the PlayStation Move sharp shooter provides the most intuitive and immersive control experience for shooter games.

In addition to Killzone 3, the sharp shooter will be compatible withalready released titles such as Time Crisis: Razing Storm, upcoming releases such as SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs and Dead Space Extraction, as well as many future PlayStation Move titles.

With its authentic design and precision, the PlayStation Move sharp shooter immediately places the player directly into the action. The streamlined design features easily accessible buttons, responsive digital trigger, realistic pump-action, firing mode selector, adjustable shoulder stock and convenient access to the navigation controller, allowing gamers to take aim and move into the firefight for hours of comfortable and engaging gameplay.

“PlayStation Move was designed with the goal of providing the most engaging and intuitive motion gaming experience possible, from a diverse range of genres,” said John Koller, director, hardware marketing, SCEA. “We’ve already seen a tremendous response to PlayStation Move’s launch lineup. With a heritage built on innovation and a significant lineup of shooter and action titles on the horizon, we’re truly evolving motion gaming with unmatched precision and a deeper sense of immersion than has ever been offered. When coupled with stereoscopic 3D support, such as in Killzone 3, the PlayStation Move sharp shooter represents a new step toward the ultimate goal of any cutting-edge video game: placing players directly in the game.”

In addition, a new “Jungle Green” DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller will also be available in February 2011 for $54.99 (MSRP), to coincide with the upcoming launch of as Killzone 3. Adding to the already wide variety of colors available in the DUALSHOCK 3 family, the new “Jungle Green” color is tailored to the core fan and offers another option for gamers to choose from. 

The official sharp shooter attachment for the PlayStation Move motion controller will be available for $39.99 (MSRP) at major retailers nationwide this coming February 2011.
