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.
Big 3 Gun Shooting is described as a "gun game value pack" and includes three titles: Time Crisis Razing Storm, Dead Storm Pirates and Time Crisis 4 Arcade Version. For a limited time, people buying a Move controller will also get a demo disk of game samples, which Sony are calling the "PlayStation Move Omnibus Demo Disk".
The "PlayStation Move Bio Hazard 5 Alternative Edition Special Pack" and "PlayStation Move BIG 3 GUN SHOOTING Perfect Pack" will be priced at 7,980 yen ($91) and 11,980 yen ($137) respectively. The Move controller will make its debut in North America on September 19th; more details here.
