Do you know that Wii MotionPlus and PS3 Motion Controller are the same?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Do you know that Wii MotionPlus and PS3 Motion Controller are the same?

I am quite shocked to find out that Wii MontionPlus and PS3 Motion Controller are basically the same. Most gaming websites claimed that PS3 Motion Controller are having better fidelity, however nobody really ever tried the PS3 Motion Controller.
Tell me, what do you think? Is it the same or one is far more superior than the other?

Poor PS3 Sales Means Smaller Losses

"Actually, because the number of units sold was not as high as we hoped, the loss was better than our original expectation," Quotes from Sony’s CFO Nobuyuki Oneda.

Great. I get to play games from two different platforms with similar, awesome technologies.

Always keep it optimistic.



 

 

They're not exactly the same, actually. They are, however, both utilizing tech from the same company.

And yes, I knew. *Gives self a cookie*



Yes I knew haha. They aren't technically the same. Better way to describe it is that they use two different methods to reach the same output.



that sword fighting didnt quite seem right. like as if there was some soft of invisible barrier around it. when he hits the balls, they seem to be hit before it touches the sword

I knew that, they are both dildo.... but just in different shape!

Look at the tech demo, it is almost the same as Sony's one without the Writing.

there is a bit of delay.
small but noticeable.

No, you're right, they're highly similar, but there are some key differences. For starters, I believe the Wand sticks the LED's on the Wand itself, and has the camera on top of the television. The Wiimote works exactly the opposite (camera on controller, LED on top of T.V.). This may seem minor, and it mostly is, but it does give the Wand some advantages: as long as the Wand stays in the camera's direct line of sight, it can be tracked with full accuracy.

The Wiimote, on the other hand, needs to recalibrate itself fairly often, to know exactly where in space it is, or else it starts to "drift" (anyone who's played Grand Slam Tennis knows exactly what I mean). How exactly it recalibrates depends on the programmers (GST does it every time you hold it still, while in Resort you can press down on the D-Pad to do so, etc.) but the most common way is to have it recalibrate as soon as the camera sees the LEDs on the T.V.

There are two problems with this: you're not always going to have the camera pointed at the T.V., so recalibration is spottier than with the Wand, and there are a LOT of sources for LEDs, including sunlight, so in some rooms it'll constantly recalibrate...in the wrong direction.

The Wand hopefully won't have that problem, if Sony is wise enough to make the Wand emit a range of light that isn't very common (and therefore won't be mistaken for sunlight). The problem I see is that the Wand won't work as well the second you somehow take it out of the camera's view, as in times when you spin or duck under something, but hopefully those moments should be fairly minimal.

Oh, and it looks even more like a sex toy than the Wiimote does, even when the latter has its condom on.



According to gametrailers, the PS wand/ps eye combination is more accurate than wii motion plus, similar to virtual reality(this was shane) so I dont know.

Not to be snarky, but I rather think that last part means we can consider the rest a nullity.
