A motion controller for the PS3 ?

Forums - Sony Discussion - A motion controller for the PS3 ?

now this is getting out of hand. are sony and microsoft seriously going to do this? MOTION CONTROL ONLY WORKS ON WII. this is an idea neither sony or microsoft can pull off in my opinion so i don't know why they are trying to even rip off the wii mote. originality has died i'm afraid, all the next gen consoles are going to be exactly the same.

hmm, hopefully this remote thingy can do things that the wiimote can't so it doesn't completely look like sony's biting Nintendo's ideas

yea Sony is more technologically advanced than nintendo,,,this guy says this technology has been created and patented by Sony in 05.  so it might be some thing different

 

 



 

 

 

"But if this is true...way to be original, Sony and MS."

Being original is great but sometimes ripping of other people can bring in the cash (ask Microsoft).
After the success of the Wii it was crystal clear that similar motion controllers would be developed by Sony and MS. They would be stupid not to try it. The more interesting question is, can their offering compete with the Wiimote and how much success can they have when their motion controller is not bundled with every console.

 Hmm 2005. Was it before or after e3? LOL



Not sure why the hate. I might cosider a PS3 if it had decent pointer controls. If the PS3 is to last 10 years, better to add the control in the first 2 years and let the rest of the sales be great, instead of having mediocre sales the entire generation.

By reading these responses, you would think they announced discontinuing supporting the current cotrolls.

Anyways, it's all just a rumor...  I put it at 15% likely at best...

Yeah, the Sixaxis already has motion control. BTW, I actually really like the Sixaxis idea. I love racing in Motorstorm and flying in Warhawk with the motion sensors on.

So a Sony Rendition of the Wii mote is on the way? Seriously, didn't Sony learn their lesson with the SixAxis?

(BTW, I don't believe they would be stupid enough to do this.)

Whats wrong with the Sixaxis, aside from the lack of rumble?

 



what the hell is this?
there is no picture, it's like a radio lol



''Hadouken!''

@insomniac17 -flying in warhawk I can understand but driving in motostrom withthe sixaxis is near impossible. I heard Wipeout uses the sixaxis really well. I think the key of sixaxis is to treat is as another button instead of a whole new control type



 

My Real Redneck friends


just to say to all people saying it is too late :

remember,

1/ PS3 is targeted for hardcore but PS3 is also 400$, a lot too expensive for the average casual. Sony will take some time before targetting the casual crowd.

2/ the PS3 is a Playstation, and like the Wii, it sell by itself and since casual are sensible to the hype and the brandname, LATER, when the price will go down (250$ ?), the PS3 should be able to sell to casual.

3/ we still dont know if Sony will push the new controller as Hell or just release it as an optional feature (like a headset/EyeToy for example).

4/ As everybody stated, without the Wii, Sony would have NOT (EDITED) released this motion sensing controller.



Time to Work !
