It's not just a white PS3 and a chunkier hard drive that Sony Japan are promising today; they're also spilling some details on the PlayStation Move launch including the awesome retro ray-gun "shooting attachment" we saw at E3.  Two bundles have been announced for Japan, set for release on October 21st 2010, one with a single Move wand, PlayStation Eye camera and a copy of Bio Hazard 5 Alternative Edition, and another that throws in a ray-gun shooting attachment and replaces the title with Big 3 Gun Shooting.

Sony PlayStation Move no memory hog but has controller limitations

Sony PlayStation Move no memory hog but has controller limitations

So, we already know the Sony PlayStation Move controller is coming Fall 2010 and should be priced - in "starter kit" form - at under $100, but we're still seeing more tidbits about the motion-control system drip out GDC this week.  There's good news and bad, unfortunately, including a limitation on multiplayer support in part thanks to the PS3's own Bluetooth connectivity capabilities.  Turns out, while up to four-player gaming is possible, that's not if everyone wants to use both the Move controller and a sub-controller.

PS3 3D gaming due Summer 2010

Remember how we told you the Sony PS3 was compatible with the Blu-ray Disc Associations finalized 3D specification back in December 2009?  If you've been wondering when exactly that 3D technology would actually arrive on the console, the answer is sometime this summer.  Pocket-lint grabbed John Koller, director of hardware marketing for SCEA, and pestered him into confirming that Sony are currently developing 3D stereoscopic games that are scheduled to arrive alongside the company's 3D LCD HDTVs over summer 2010.

Sony PSP-4000 rumors re-examined after tipster proves mettle

Sony PSP-4000 rumors re-examined after tipster proves mettle

With the veracity of his information seemingly corroborated by accurately tipping the Sony PS3 Slim back in June now that the skinny console has been made official, tipster Super_Secret's next prediction - regarding Sony's portable gaming line - is now under the microscope.  In June the anonymous source suggested that rather than phasing out UMD-based PSP models, Sony were instead preparing to replace the current PSP-3000 with a new PSP-4000.

Amazon Limits Number of PS3 Slim Consoles Per Household

Amazon Limits Number of PS3 Slim Consoles Per Household

So, Sony announced the PlayStation 3 Slim yesterday, and while we're sure you read about it, and are clamoring to get one, Amazon wants you to hold your horses. While they have the console up for pre-order right now, they are now limiting the number of consoles available to a household down to a marginal one console per home. Of course, this isn't really unheard of, especially not with the launch of a new console, so it's not necessarily unorthodox. But, Amazon is also saying that there are already shortages across the US. So, did Sony not manufacture enough for the initial September launch? Or has the PlayStation 3 suddenly become preternaturally desired?

Xbox set to get Wii-like with motion control

Xbox set to get Wii-like with motion control

Well, not exactly Wii-like. If a leaked image is to be believed, Microsoft has a new motion controlling system in the works to compete against what the Nintendo Wii is offering. However, this isn't set up like the Wii in that you can wave around a remote and the sensor will pick up the motion. Rather, the Xbox system simply detects your body's movements and interprets them on the screen.

Sony gaming patent suggests motion-sensitive Transformer controller

Sony gaming patent suggests motion-sensitive Transformer controller

It looks a little like a tool to remove the head from your favorite miserable robot, but this is actually a diagram from one of Sony's latest game controller patents.  The as-yet unnamed controller takes the accelerometer and LED-based tracking system of the Wiimote and adds ultrasonics to gauge its absolute position relative to your TV (via the PSEye microphone array) and other controllers.

Sony releases new PlayStation 3 stuff in Japan

Sony releases new PlayStation 3 stuff in Japan

First off, and least important, they get the new 40GB PS3 model. Now for the good stuff, a ceramic white PS3 with matching controller and Dual Shock 3 controllers.

I think the 40GB will be the one available in white and the matching controller will be a regular SIXAXIS but it will be the same white. However Sony is also looking to phase out the 60GB and 20GB models, so they are bundling them with Spiderman 3 for the holidays, the 40GB also gets this bundle.

Sony denies rumble feature in new SIXAXIS

I'm sure that plenty of you out there have a PS3, if so, I doubt that you've missed the fact that your controller doth not rumble. It has been speculated for some time that Sony is putting the rumble in a new iteration of the SIXAXIS, but sadly Sony has come forward to deny this.
