Motion controllers are going to be the hot topic in 2010. From a more realistic virtual system like Project Natal, the now confirmed release date for the PS3 Motion Controller to the now updated Wii Motion+. Gamers around the world will be experiencing a whole new way of interacting with our consoles no matter which system your on. The future is unknown for the interactive motion controlled products but I believe that their is a light at the end of the tunnel of the virtual entertainment machine.
Motion Controller, Together with an Extensive
Line-up of Software Titles, Delivers Whole New Entertainment Experience on PlayStation(R)3
TOKYO, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) today announced that it will release its new Motion Controller(1) (tentative name) for the PlayStation?3 (PS3?) computer entertainment system in fall 2010 in Japan,
Asian regions and countries, North America and Europe/PAL territories together with an extensive line-up of exciting software titles. The new controller, combined with the PlayStation?Eye camera(2), can detect the natural and intuitive movement of the hand and reflect the precise movement within the game, delivering a whole new entertainment experience on PS3.
Though many games are in the pipe for all of the current consoles and their idea of what people (gamers) want, no one can actually judge any of these innovations until we (the gaming community) get our hands on the new controller/device.
"We have decided to release the Motion Controller in fall 2010 when we will be able to offer an exciting and varied line-up of software titles that will deliver the new entertainment experience to PS3 users, " said Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
"We will continue to work to have a comprehensive portfolio of attractive and innovative games for the Motion Controller, not only from SCE Worldwide Studios but also from the third party developers and publishers, whom we have been working closely with. We look forward to soon unveiling the exciting software line-up that further expands and defines the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home."
Now, I for one have had it with all of the so called add-ons waggle sticks and more talk from SONY on what we will get and not what is available right now. So instead of hating on SONY for not bringing forth all of the PS3?s promised technology, I will just let you the gamer(s) make up your own mind on this new Motion Controller (updated Wii-Mote).
Give me games and across all features Party Chat system, I mean it?s been over 3 years now and I ?STILL? can?t talk to my friends over PSN no matter if I?m downloading games or even just watching a movie, com?on SONY? ( RANT )
SCE will vigorously promote the Motion Controller as the de facto controller of the PS3 platform along with the DUALSHOCK? series controller and will deploy various measures to enhance the software title line-up for the Motion Controller, delivering groundbreaking interactive entertainment only possible on the PS3 platform.
(1) Motion Controller is a tentative name.
(2) Users will need to use the PlayStation Eye camera to enjoy the Motion
Controller on PS3.
Bottom line for me and SONY?s upcoming Motion Controller is that when it launches I hope I will be able to actually play a solid AAA quality game. I don?t want a million mini games. I will have to hold the new controller and see what SONY will be offering to the world of motion technology. I?ll personally keep my 360 controller over all others on any system, even over Project Natal.
