Gunning for big sales

Nyko's PlayStation Move support continues today with the launch of the Skill Shot, a "tactical rifle attachment" for Move that arrives just in time for the launch of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs.

Costing $19.99, the Skill Shot is half the price of the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter and offers support for left or right-handed gamers via a rotating housing for the Navigation controller. It doesn't offer the fancy extra buttons and features of the Sharp Shooter, but you wouldn't really expect it to as it costs $20 less.

The Skill Shot is available across North America from today. If you grab one, let us know what you make of it.
