Sony is moving forward with its 3-D and motion-control gaming plans.

The game maker announced Tuesday that 20 3-D games would be released for its PlayStation 3 console by March 2011 while 40 games that utilize PlayStation Move, the console's new motion-control system, would be out in time for the holiday season. Unlike Microsoft's Xbox 360 or Nintendo's Wii, the PS3 has been updated with software to display 3-D games.

"What PlayStation did for Blu-ray, we're now ready to do for 3-D," said Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kazuo Hirai during Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference. "It's that experience in content that will define 3-D."

Among the unveiled 3-D games, which would require a 3-D television and 3-D glasses to be experienced in full stereoscopic 3-D, were "Motor Storm: Apocalypse," ''Gran Turismo 5," ''Crysis 2," ''Tron Evolution," ''Shaun White Skateboarding," ''Mortal Kombat," ''Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier," ''The Sly Collection" and "NBA 2K11."

The first-person shooter "Killzone 3" was shown for the first time to the E3 crowd at the Shrine Auditorium in 3-D. Other games that were debuted included first-person puzzler "Portal 2," a new edition of the car-combat franchise "Twisted Metal" and "Sorcery," an action-adventure title that transforms the lollipop-shaped Move controller into a magical wand.

Sony also revealed the Move controller will be available Sept. 19 in the U.S. for $49.99. The Move's navigation controller will be sold separately for $29.99. Sony will also sell bundles of the controller, camera and the new action sports title "Sports Champions" for $99.99. The controller, camera, console and "Sports Champions" would cost $399.99.
