TGS 09: Kaz whips out Sony motion controller at keynote

Thursday, 24th September 2009 03:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Sony bossman Kaz Hirai has shown attendees at his TGS keynote the new motion controller demoed at E3.

He didn’t demo it, but spoke a bit about it instead, showing a wand with changing colors of yellow, blue, and purple.

“The controller has image recognition and depth perception and it’s accurate and can trace user’s positions,” he told the crowd.

Hirai went on to say that Sony will continue to work closely with devs to help support the motion controller as it can attract “light” users.

He also said it has “a light vibration feedback”. Rawr. Day one purchase.

Hit this for the rest of the keynote’s news.

    I dunno, in that picture it basically looks like a torch to me. Flashlight if you’re from A’murca.

    Nope, it’s clearly a travel portable shaver.

    They really do need to give it a snazzy name.

    Seems to me they’ve actually put the buttons where they can be used – crazy I know – so not quite a Black-Wiimote. ;)

    As for the additional “light vibration feedback”, make of that what you will ;-)
