Xbox 360 to get motion-sensing add-on with full body game control?

Engadget writes: "Here's a wild one. We just got a tip from someone who purports to be in the know on Microsoft's efforts to beat the Wii at its own motion-sensing game, with some of the details lining up with what we were hearing last year along these lines. The word is that Microsoft is building a "sensor bar" of sorts, but instead of detecting the waggles of Wiimote-like controllers, it detects full body movement and sound, sans controllers. There are two sensors on the bar, along with a mic and a camera, and while our tipster has "no idea" how it actually works, it sounds pretty impressive."

Holy crap..the xbox in that pic looks hugeee

oh ..that sensor bar looks interesting. After this statement " MS is going to change the way people think of home entertainment, forever at E3" . This makes perfect sense

nah...just doesnt float my boat,give me a control pad any day,but im sure alot of people will enjoy this.

Exactly right. As long as they dont focus their undivided attention on this it's great. I like a pad, 'he/she' likes motion controls. Everyones happy.

I expect both MS/Sony will have something out by the end of this gen (if even, year). Nintento's got the majority of the pie, they'll most definitely want some of that. Cant beat them, join um. While keeping hold of your current slice of course.

Ya know MS, everyone says you got a good controller. Maybe you should find some interesting ways to use that.
