So, it took a whole day for Sony to come up with the whole motion controller scheme integrated into a camera based technology?

Yikes! If you trolls lose your consistency, you'll have no other intellectual merits to fall back on...

If Sony managed to come up with that, build a prototype, have software for a tech demo all in a day, then I am very impressed. Way to go Sony.

And after rumors of Sony unveiling new hardware began floating around parts of the net shortly after GDC 09, MS put together the most original motion control system since eyetoy for the PS2... opps... I mean since man created the wheel.

You guys are f*cking idiots. Sony has been working on the motion controller before the Wii even came out. Why dont you do your homework before you run your mouths?

since 1999 or earlier.

Sony really needs to officially name their motion system. Until they do, even though it is the most advanced system for consoles so far, it will still be treated as being underdeveloped as a product. MS nailed the marketing part with Natal, but the tech is lacking in some major functionality. So if Sony could just step it up and name this beautiful baby they have created, it can turn into a system selling beast not seen since the PowerGlove.

I hope they manage to get it together for heavy rain some tweaks and motion control could be very interesting.
