Ready to conquer the living room
Ubisoft just hit with the first big PlayStation Move game of E3 — Just Dance 3 is on the way to Sony's motion controller on 11th October.
The game is also coming to Kinect and Wii, but while the press release mentions exclusive features for those consoles it doesn't specify anything for PlayStation Move. Hopefully Move will receive a bespoke version rather than a tarted-up port of the Wii game as we've seen before from Ubisoft.
