I know, most people see these types of accessories as, well, worthless junk. However, as the video above depicts, there’s a lot more to this accessory than meets the eye. Besides the handles being adjustable (to go from a car-like steering wheel design to a motorcycle-like design), it also has longer, concave triggers for better finger grip, paddle shifters, and its own directional DualShock motors (one on each side), all powered by the Move controller itself.
Anton Mikhailov, SCE’s R&D guy, even mentioned how it could be used for flight games as well. Another really cool feature, as far as motorcycle control goes, the right handle could be twisted as a throttle, which also drives the right hand DualShock motor. Watch out for this later this year. It will retail for around $40.

The eagerly awaited sequel to Warhawk hit the shelves back in May of this year. Before I go on and give you the low down on Starhawk, let’s quickly recap on this series’ first outing on the PS3 as Warhawk.
Warhawk is as a fast-paced, arcade style online multiplayer title which wasn’t packed with a single player campaign. The single player campaign was cancelled during development, as there were concerns that it was inferior to the game’s multiplayer component.
Warhawk, similar to the Battlefield shooters, is based on a fictional war (between Eucadian and Chernovan armies). Basic principles of the game applied, you can either run around maniacally, shooting everything and everyone in your path or you could make use of the in-game vehicles at your disposal to wreak havoc on the maps.
The game was an instant success, and as a result of this, we now have the sequel – Starhawk.
