PlayStation Move Playable at Osheaga Festival

By Paul Hunter

PlayStation Canada have announced on their website that the company will once again be sponsoring the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival, taking place on July 31 & August 1, 2010 in Montreal, Quebec.

The company's upcoming motion control peripheral, PlayStation Move, will be playable at the PlayStation Gaming Lounge at the event. PlayStation Move is poised to compete with Microsoft's upcoming controller-free motion device, Kinect, and Nintendo's highly successful Wii. This is your chance to try Sony's motion control device in advance of its North America launch on September 19, 2010.

But wait, there's more.

Sony have also announced that their line-up of 3D gaming will also be playable on the PlayStation lounge. The first four games to receive the 3D gaming treatment are WipEout HD, Pain, Super Stardust HD, and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. No word as to which games will be playable, but it's a good bet those four will be available for some hands-on.

Music artists performing at this year's Osheaga Festival include Weezer, Metric, Snoop Dogg, Sonic Youth, and Arcade Fire.
