There seems to be a growing trend of adding Move support to older Playstation titles, but a newer trend has spawned from that, Playstation Plus only availability. High Velocity Bowling is so far the only game to have this limitation, though the re-released Blu-Ray version will have the patch on the disc.
The game was originally released as a Playstation Network download only title back in 2007, since then much DLC has been added on to the bowling experience, and the Blue-Ray version will provide all content to you. What does this mean for you Joe Gamer, well it means if you have already purchased the game and perhaps some of it’s subsequent DLC then you will have to pony up another $50 for that PS Plus subscription for Move support.
Either way, Sony is getting a fatter wallet while you are getting a more accurate bowling experience, fair trade-off? hardly. But if you are patient enough, free Playstation Network subscribers, you may get the patch as well in the future according to one Sony rep.
Whether High Velocity Bowling is an isolated incident or the first of more staggered Move patches to come is unclear, as Sony had not commented as of press time. I guess it really does pay to be a Plus subscriber.
