And to serve as a reminder that Sony’s motion controller is still very much a thing, today the company laid out its Move plans for coming months. There, at the very least, a handful of games still coming out for the thing from the people who make the PlayStation 3.
In North America, expect the following PlayStation Move games, with selected quotes from Sony Computer Entertainment America explaining why you might want to finally pick up a Move controller.

This time though you’ll have a brand new toy to make things easier, The Brain Crane-a new power up that allows you to control objects with the power of your mind. There is also a new suite of powerful gadgets for use with PlayStation Move allowing players to create their own PlayStation Move games, record fluid motions, and paint their own stickers, while a boatload of new stickers, materials, decorations, costumes, music, sound and sequencer objects will vastly broaden your creative palette, and make your Popit burst at the seams.”
