After the break. You can see very clearly what’s going on here. The game seems to work well with Sony’s wand, although the guy playing does appear to be holding both the motion controller and a standard pad. At the same time.
This is footage taken from yesterday’s Sony TGS press conference. PS3′s motion system is slated for a spring 2010 launch.

PS3′s motion system releases next spring. Thanks, Syrok.

Can you feel that? That’s the Internet doing a backflip, because Sony’s motion wand controller thingy finally has a release window.
“We are slating it for spring of next year,” Kaz Hirai told Times Online. “One of the things is that we just don’t want to put out the controller. We need a great software that supports the controller at launch. It’s something that we’ve been working on for the longest time.”

SCEE R&D boss Paul Holman told Edge at Develop this week that PS3′s upcoming motion technology will cause advancement in games thanks to its precision.
“I think we can just say that it’s very, very precise,” he said. “People are going to be able to take games in this space forward because of the precision aspects.”
Kish Hirani, head of dev services, gave an example.
“The classic example I give to people is that the most precise thing you can do is write your name using a [piece of] chalk on a blackboard,” he said.
“Try doing that with a mouse and it’s bloody difficult.”
More through there. Sony showed the tech in action at the UK conference yesterday.

Variety sources are claiming PS3′s much-rumoured motion controller is to be revealed at E3 in June.
As per a patent filed in 2007, the device is thought to be tracked by a small webcam and can read different coloured lights, as well as the shape and angle of each light, making it far more sensitive that the Wii-mote.
Is this true? Very probably. How surprising would it be? Not at all. In any way. You have permission to look tired and all-knowing when they wheel it out in the press conference.
