The video-game world is abuzz over this MTV News report asserting that Microsoft is working on a motion-sensitive Xbox 360 game controller in the style of Nintendo's "Wiimote" controller for its Wii console. Questions have been raised about the story, which relies on a single, anonymous source. MTV defends its reporting in this post. Microsoft is giving the standard line: "It is Microsoft's policy not to comment on rumors or speculation."
Whether or not the report turns out to be true, the other interesting question is, should Microsoft be working on something like this? Or would a motion-sensitive Xbox controller be seen as nothing more than a copycat?
