SOCOM 4 Move bundle mobilizes April 19

Sony to package Zipper's latest shooter with motion-sensing and navigation controllers, PS Eye, Sharp Shooter shell for $150.


SOCOM 4 has been the poster child for Sony's new motion-sensing controller, the PlayStation Move, since the device was given its formal debut at the 2010 Game Developers Conference. It makes sense, then, that the publisher will be offering gamers a way to pick up both Zipper Interactive's latest modern-military shooter and the PlayStation 3 peripheral as part of one package.

Today, Sony announced the SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs Full Deployment Edition will be available alongside the standard edition of the game on April 19 for $150. In the package, gamers will find the game, as well as a Move controller, a navigation subcontroller, and a PlayStation Eye camera.

The package will also include the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter shell, a casing that mimics the shape of a submachine gun and houses the Move and navigation controllers. The Move Sharp Shooter is also currently available as a stand-alone $40 purchase and is compatible with a range of other shooters, such as Guerrilla Games' just-released Killzone 3.

SOCOM 4 will be set in Southeast Asia after a revolution endangers a vital shipping lane similar to the Strait of Malacca. Players assume the role of the commander of a five-man squad of NATO commandos dispatched to prevent international trade from being disrupted. As is a staple for the series, SOCOM 4 will have an extensive multiplayer component, allowing for teams of players to shoot it out in 32-player matches.
