Guns? Check. Swords? Check. Chargers? Check. Having covered all of the above categories it’s time to take a look at the last but not least important PlayStation Move accessories of our tour: the grips, the straps and the camera TV clips. Basically all the stuff that helps in protecting our PlayStation Move paraphernalia.

A quite elegant silicone grips set this is, protecting every inch of both the Move and the Navigation controller without hiding anything that matters. Not even the power indicator. The pack (which includes two jackets, one for the Move and one for the Navigation controller) also comes with one PS-branded wrist strap. Three colors available: red, blue and charcoal. A similar set by I-nique proposes different colors (see below).
Kinda like the 4Gamers set, this one by Hama includes silicone grips for both the Move and the Navigation controller but the Move jacket lacks the hole above the power indicator (which should still be visible anyway due to the transparency). Two wrist straps are included in each pack instead of just one, and they both have a similar lock mechanism to that used by the official Sony one. No PS logo tho. Colors selection includes: Blue, Pink, White and Beige.
If you don’t have or don’t care about your little Navigation controller, Hama also sells a Move-only set which basically offers half the content of the above mentioned kit (one jacket and one strap). At about half the price. Color options are the same.
This somewhat more aggressive looking set by CTA offers an extra layer of protection thanks to an increased thickness of its silicon covering. It also offers extra grip via a series of colored “bumps” on its sides. Each pack includes two grips (one for the Move and one for the Navigation controller), but no strap. Three color options available (relative to the highlights alone): Blue, Red and Pink.
Offered in just one color, this pair of Move and Navigation controller silicon skins appears to be quite transparent as you can easily see both the Sony logo and the power indicator. Despite the transparency, it appears to be quite thicker than most of the other grips for superior shock resistance. Notice the indented grips.

A set of four wrist straps which of course can be used with anything other than the Move controllers. Strap lock mechanism appears to be the same as the official Move wrist strap. Which is always a plus.
This officially Sony product conveniently mounts the PlayStation Eye camera on flat panel televisions with no need to use any adhesive. The clip angle can be adjusted to almost 180°, meaning you can also use this as some sort of stand for the camera if not located on the top of the screen. Going by the reviews at Amazon, this looks like a winner.
This rather unelegant (both in concept and design) solution to the “how do I keep this thing steady?” PS Eye conundrum is probably the best choice if you want to spend the least possible money.
Hard to tell how this works going by the only picture I could find, but this Rocketfish camera clip appears to be similar to the PDP one, with the added bonus of extension USB cable included in the package. Worth a check I guess, but it seems to be only available in Canada.
Nice idea for a Move accessory this is, and an unique one apparently as it seems Logic 3 is the only company selling it. As you can easily tell by the picture, the soft inner lining firmly hosts both the Move and the Navigation controllers, and it also comes with a nest for carrying accessories and discs around (put the latter in a plastic cover tho, unless you want them scratched). The outer shell of this dual zip case is made of rigid material for protection and features a carry handle.
