Sony Computer Entertainment officially announced today that its Motion Controller for the PlayStation 3 will be available in fall 2010 in Japan, Asian regions and countries, North America and Europe/PAL territories. The announcement says the controller will be released alongside an ‘extensive line-up of exciting software titles.’
The Motion Controller, as it is tentatively named (still), will require the PlayStation Eye to operate. Both devices will detect the natural and intuitive movements of the hand and reflect the precise movement within the game. Sony believes this will offer a ‘whole new entertainment experience on PS3.’
"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."
The controller was originally slated for spring release.
