TGS 2009: More Playstation Motion Controller Details and Supported Games | PS3Blog.net

It nice that they are incorporating the PlayStation Eye instead of having us buy a new PlayStation Eye. What do you think of the final design? I’m sure that it may change a little before release though. Here are some more photos of the PlayStation Motion Controller from the Press Event last night. No video just yet.

Motion Controller* for PlayStation(R)3 to Become Available in Spring 2010

Motion Controller (Unofficial Name) Equipped with High-Precision Motion Sensors, Combined With PlayStation(R)Eye Camera, Delivers Whole New Entertainment Experience on PlayStation(R)3

TOKYO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) today announced that it will release a new Motion Controller (unofficial name) for PlayStation®3 (PS3®) computer entertainment system in Spring 2010. The new controller, equipped with high-precision, highly accurate motion sensors, can deliver a whole new entertainment experience on PS3 when combined together with the PlayStation®Eye camera(*1). Capable of recognizing and tracking a user’s face and voice as well as body motion, PlayStation Eye can also output the player’s image onto the TV screen. SCE will vigorously promote the expansion of this new experience only possible on the PS3 platform.

The newly announced Motion Controller is equipped with two motion sensors, three axes gyroscope and three axes accelerometer that can detect the controller’s angle and movement held in the user’s hand. Together with the PlayStation Eye camera for PS3 which can accurately track the absolute position of the controller, the controller can detect the natural and intuitive movement of the hand and reflect the precise movement on to the game. The sphere placed on the top of the controller is not only used to track the absolute position but can also give visual feedback to users by changing the colors or the illuminating patterns of the sphere. Furthermore, the new controller is also equipped with a rumble feature, familiar to the PlayStation® DUALSHOCK® series controller, delivering an immersive gaming experience to users.

Further expanding the new experience on PS3, SCE Worldwide Studios will deliver many exciting software titles for the Motion Controller in 2010(*2). SCE, with strong support from software developers and publishers, will deploy various measures to enhance the software title line-up for the new Motion Controller and vigorously promote the PS3 platform.

    I find it funny people always complain about the “ball” on the end of the controller, but without it there is no motion controller. it basically works like a motion-capture suite.

  • yeah the ball is definitely necessary for it to work. i think it looks fine, although i can’t help but be reminded of the hitachi magic wand sorta 😛

    lol

    I just hope Sony can get some good games to use this tech. Using actual product demos at TGS was very smart, what, with RE5: Alternative Edition and LBP (which, in that sense, wouldn’t be tech demos per say). Natal only had a discussion panel and a few target videos. Actuality vs potentiality as G4 put it. Here’s hoping we get more good games and less shovelware like the Wii gets!
