I remember talking to a guy once that was part of the group that tested the boomerang controllers. He thought they were amazing. Apparently it had different vibration points throughout the controller which acted as a kind of 3d vibration feedback. In the example he gave me, he said you could clearly tell in FPS type games just via the vibration alone which direction you were being hit from and from the front or the back.

But as we now know, Sony was stuck in the middle of a lawsuit over vibration control which Microsoft settled rather than fight (buying 10% of the company in question). Obviously the boomerang controllers couldn't have launched while the lawsuit was still ongoing, so we got the cheap feeling Sixasses controller while Sony lied and said "Oh! Gamers don't want vibration. It'll wreck motion controls." not "We can't. We're fighting patent disputes in court."

It's too bad. Based on what this guy told me back in the day, I would have liked to have given them a try.
