PlayStation Move 'sharp shooter' gun revealed

Rifle-attachment cranks things up a notch

New add-on coming a same time as Killzone 3.

Sure, that nifty little pistol you’ve been using with PlayStation Move is fun. But let’s face it: when you’re annihilating undead or picking off innocent bystanders, you want something a bit more heavy duty.

Hence Sony’s new ‘sharp shooter’ rifle add-on for Move. The new piece is due to land in April next year, coinciding with the release of Killzone 3. The Big S says the fake firearm packs, “…easily accessible buttons, responsive digital trigger, realistic pump-action, firing mode selector, adjustable shoulder stock and convenient access to the navigation controller”.

The sharp shooter is set to cost $39 (£24), when it hits shelves. And we can already see a string of men of a certain age taking cover behind the couch or poking their heads round the corner of doors to ensure they get that immersive experience Sony’s banging on about.

Fancy it? Or happy to stay slumped on your sofa, regular controller in hand? Let us know now on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
