Motion Sensing Confirmed For Spring 2010, List Of Software
We had heard the estimate before but now it's official, as Sony has announced that their new motion controller will arrive for the PlayStation 3 in Spring 2010.
"Equipped with high-precision, highly accurate motion sensors," this controller will open new doors in the world of interactive entertainment. It will be able to track a user's facial expressions and voice as well as the now-customary body movements, and the PlayStation Eye will be able to place your body directly into the image on the TV screen (as we've already seen). This motion controller will come with two motion sensors, three axes gyroscope and three axes accelerometer that will detect the controller's angle and movement. The sphere at the top of the controller is used to track the "absolute position" and "give visual feedback to users by changing the colors or the illuminating patterns of the sphere." And yes, we know some of you have been asking: it will also support the rumble feature found in the Dual Shock 3.
Of course, we'll need the games to go along with this new experience, and Sony was good enough to provide us with a list of titles that will support the motion controller. And here they are:
- Ape Escape (Working Title)
- Echochrome 2 (Working Title)
- Eccentric Slider (Working Title)
- Sing and Draw (Working Title)
- Champions of Time (Working Title)
- Motion Party (Working Title)
- The Shoot (Working Title)
- Tower (Working Title)
Now, Sony will also add motion control compatibility to a few current titles via impending Network updates, and those games are: PAIN, Flower, Hustle Kings, High Velocity Bowling, and not surprisingly, EyePet. Yes indeed, it's only the beginning as this new motion technology of Sony's is both innovative and revolutionary.
