Rumor: Details on New Sony Controller, No Break-Apart

June 13, 2008 / 04:20 PM EDT / (@salromano)

An anonymous industry source has told Kotaku that a new motion controller will be coming to the PLAYSTATION 3. The controller will not break-apart and transform into other things, however.

The control system consists of a smaller-sized device that can be attached to the body of the controller. Multiple devices are intended to be used in concert, such as moving a characters hands in-game, etc. This was all according to the source.

Sony declined to comment.

    I have no idea why they even bother with a motion controller when they have the PS Eye.

    They’ve already proven that they can do head motion tracking without any attachments on the player. And what about all those really cool tests they were doing in the lab? I saw video of PS Eye developers taking pictures of actual items and applying physics to the item.

    I almost wish I hadn’t bothered buying the PS Eye if they’re going to continue to ignore the potential the system had. I’m already sorry I bought that stupid PS Eye fish game. Like Jessica Simpson, pretty to look at but otherwise useless.
