PS3 Move Misconceptions
The Playstation Move was announced at E3 2009 and there are now 25 currently announced PS Move supported titles. As with all new products, there are misconceptions in the gaming community about it. There is already confusion that needs to be cleared up.
1) You Will Need To Buy Two Move Controllers
The Playstation Move lineup currently contains NO software that has been officially announced to require two Move controllers. (EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that one title, "The Fight: Lights Out", does require two controllers. Releases October 31. However, you still will not need two for the rest of the known titles, as far has been announced.)
2) You Will Need To Buy a Navigation Controller
Joystiq reports that Sony's Anton Mikhailov proclaimed at an E3 presentation, that the Navigation controller is interchangeable with the SIXAXIS/DualShock 3 controller.
3) It Will Cost an Arm and a Leg
At the base of $90 ($40 for the Playstation Eye, $50 for the Move controller, and using your included SIXAXIS or DualShock 3), I would have to say that the price of adding Move isn't too unreasonable.
While it could get more pricey when playing multiplayer, it's likely that friends interested in playing with Move will likely have their own controllers. Siblings could join the fun for less than the cost of a DualShock 3 for many of the games.
