Way back in January at the 2011 CES, yours truly had a chance to take a look
at NYKO's prototype assault rifle for the PlayStation 3 Move. At the time, it was being called the "Power Shot", but it since has been renamed the Skill Shot
and is now available in stores. The Skill Shot will retail for $19.99 (half the Sony versions cost) and still sports many of the features I saw in January. Included are dual ergonomically correct handles, ambidextrous play and a removable navigation controller dock. If the Skill Shot is half as good as the prototype I saw in Vegas, than this is a must have for anyone that plays any FPS game that is Move capable.
