Sony bossman, Shuhei Yoshida, has told Eurogamer that the launch titles coming for the new PS3 motion controller only need one of the motion controller to be played.

“The ultimate goal or wish for us is if you have two controllers, like we demoed at E3, we can do something really amazing,” he said.

“It’s like putting your arms into the TV, like a gaming space, and you have total control of the 3D space in front of you, but because of cost-of-goods and, you know, people have to have the PlayStation Eye camera as well, we are approaching the launch by making sure that all games that we create can be played with one controller and the camera.

“We will also introduce options for if you happen to have more than one controller available. Experiences will be enhanced if you purchase a second.”

During E3, Sony mentioned during the demonstration that up to four wands could be used and recognized by PlayStation Eye at once.
