Tomorrow's PlayStation Move launch details confirmed

Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand has detailed the various PlayStation Move motion-sensing hardware and accompanying software for the PlayStation 3 that will be available in stores nationwide from tomorrow.

The main component, the PlayStation Move controller, will retail for $79.95. An optional navigation controller (which is, however, required for some games) will set you back an additional $59.95. Those without the existing PlayStation Eye peripheral (which is mandatory for PlayStation Move use) should look instead to the starter pack, which consists of one PlayStation Move controller, the EyeToy camera and a starter disc featuring demos of Sports Champions, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, Start the Party and more for $109.95.

Sony has also confirmed that the following software will be available upon launch:
