    ps3 PS3 Motion Control details incoming

    Rumours point to launch date, partners and hardware specifics reveal at GDC
    With much of the world’s games industry gearing up for GDC in San Francisco this week, the number of rumours doing the rounds is rapidly increasing – and there’s plenty being said about Sony’s Motion Controller.
    Chief amongst the talk, VG247 claims to have word that Sony will tomorrow go live with details including a firm release date and list of launch publishing partners.
    You can also expect the peripheral to be given a concrete name – be it Arc, Gem or something altogether different.
    Further chat has claimed that the device will come in two parts much like Nintendo’s WiiMote and Nunchuck controller.
    There are plenty more rumours doing the rounds, too, though the credibility of most is up to question. Here’s one that caught MCV’s eye, though – LittleBigPlanet 2 will tomorrow be revealed as a Motion Controller exclusive due out this Q4.
    The truth will be known first thing tomorrow morning.

    Why don't they just call it the CloneAmote because like 90% of what Sony does Nintendo does it first and they just wait for them to develop the idea and stick it on their own console, it'll start off with developers just doing HD ports of Wii games, and with the cost to develop for Ps3 and rubbish SDK and of course Sony's lack of support with helping developers i can't see much coming of this.

    @symbal: microsoft should then name natal CloneEye. And nintendo wasn't the first to come with a mote. I think motes are there since 5th gen and cameras since 6th gen.
    btw sony had a wand in sixth gen for use with eyetoy. It is a fact N fanboys

    Eyetoy is purely just a webcam that reads the general direction of where you moving so never had any potential, but Natal has 2 cameras so it sees you in 3d and measures depth and distance and the power of 360 means it can measure exact limb movements and use those plastic peripherals like the Wii uses, it really is nothing like the Eyetoy, and the simple fact is if you look back into Nintendo's history they are the ones that do massively more innovating than anyone else and they show how things can be used and other manufacturers copy.

    Natal uses an Infrared projector and one sensor to obtain its 3D image of the world. Nintendo had the chance to use Natal but turned it down.

    The Wii's tiny 729mhz and 88mb ram couldn't even begin to handle what Natal does and Nintendo's never been one for using hardware if they can't make it work well, why do you think they resisted Cd/Dvd's and internet connections on their consoles for so long?

    still PS3's arc is to wiimote what natal is to eyetoy. It uses the eye and ps3 has more ram and cell.
    Also, natal is faulty. It lags(TT boss said that) and isn't all that precise.
    You also mention nintendo's innovations. But it was neither the company to introduce cds,dvds and blu-ray discs, camera or analog sticks(sony) nor the one to introduce online services(microsoft). And let's not forget that Sixaxis(E3 2005) was revealed earlier than wii remote(TGS 2005).
