Sony updates PS Move controllers with some much needed changes

Sony first released the PS Move controllers back in 2010 to work with the PlayStation 3. Since then, absolutely no changes have been made to the controllers leaving them severely outdated. That is finally changing.

Earlier this week, Sony announced a few changes coming to its PSVR headset and its continuing to improve other peripherals as well, starting with the PS Move controllers. The main change you will notice is the shift from Mini USB to Micro USB charging port.

Most products made today support Micro USB. The fact that Sony sold a key product that charged via Mini USB in 2017 is comical, but it finally saw the light and took a step into the present. It probably should have jumped the whole way and gone with USB-C, but that’s a discussion for another day.

The battery inside the Move controllers also got bumped up. Previously, the controllers had a 1,350mAh battery but now they will have a 1,900mAh battery. They will only work with PlayStation 4, sorry PlayStation 3 owners.

Sony did not announce a release date or pricing for the updated PS Move controllers.
