Zen Studios announced today that they will be releasing a patch for Planet MiniGolf
that will allow the game to use the Move motion controller. You'll be able to use the controller in single player mode, in the menus, and the game will support four controllers in the multi-player portion of the game.
This is a nice move by Zen Studios as it really enhances the game experience and provides Sony with another established (and cheap) game that supports their new controller. The patch will be released in conjunction with the launch of the Move.
