Sony's early plans for motion controllers involved superheroes, magic, and... Teletubbies?

It's no secret that Sony's motion controllers were in the works for quite a long time before finally being unveiled at E3 2009. Still, it's fun to look back into the past and see how the whole project evolved. (Culture, Dev, Industry, PS3)

lol a teletubbies game?
thats ridiculous.
but also remember that this presentation was back in 2001,
when Teletubbies was at its prime.
it may have sold a lot back then just as much as popular TV show-games like Ben 10 and Naruto has sold now.

Teletubbies.....how embarrassing.
TheMART  +   2217d ago
Tinkie Winkie on the G@ystation 3.

And probably rubbing them like one can with the Eyepet game.

Fits the G@ystation 3 perfectly, and the G@ystation 3 only tards also.

You're reaching a new low Mart...

BTW how this got approved when the tittle was changed for flame war purposes? Isn't one of the rules for submitting articles to always put the original tittle?

You're the one that's playing Gay Tony and are you jealous the PS3 motion control "dildo" isn't on the 360 for your use.

wow...

Well then tbh that instantly puts to rest the "sony is ripping off the wii" argument...

I mean since these vids of older stuff have been around for so long I wouldnt be suprised is Nintendo went and copied sony...

Exactly SONY has been working on Motion controls for a long time. Nintendo just realized how to use them properly and implemented them correctly before SONY even thought about it. That's the problem with SONY. They have a lot of good stuff that they don't push enough. Eye toy could have been huge but there wasn't any marketing.

Even MORE...
Even more so, I don't think that Sony really felt that it was a viable commodity. R & D goes on in these companies all of the time, but there must have been someone at Sony that didn't go ahead a greenlight any projects based on the tech. Nintendo had it's back against the wall and just said "what the hell", threw caution to the wind, and did it. Remember, no one was REALLY worried about Nintendo in this generation. Thus, all of the buzz that was...and still IS around MS and Sony. I personally didn't think that the we would be the IT system this generation. Guess I am not cut out to be a console CEO!*LOL*

SONY always leaders in developing the gaming industry.

Thats why they're PS3rd this gen, right?

You know they changed it recently to:

SLOWNY

Always overpromising & underdelivering!

'THIS IS WAITING!'

EDIT

@ saaking below

The price of the PS3 isn't justified. It costs double the 360 and they can do about the same. Apart from BluRay, but with 99,9% of all games fitting on one DL-DVD it isn't really needed for gaming. Unless one puts endless CGI movies on the disc obviously. But thats not gaming. Thats watching a movie.

PS3 isn't selling at a faster rate anymore. It did up to September 2008, because die hard gamers buy at any price. After that especially during the recession kicking in, the sales dropped. Since September 2008 the 360 has been outselling the PS3.

And you know what, it doesn't even matter... The gap has become bigger, from 8 mln. its now up to 9 mln. units.

It's PS3rd all the way throughout this gen!

The only one underdelivering is MS and the price of the PS3 is more than justified. Yes, it's expensive, but it offers many things the 360 doesn't not to mention top of the line exclusives every year. And remember the PS3 is selling at a faster rate than the 360 and it's only 2 year 8 months old.

@ Mart
your mind has become twisted beyond comprehension your so deep in this fanboy mentality that you are legally retarded with g@ystation this g@ystation that just because Sony was working on motion controls before MS and nintendo how can a human being live like that my god you need help god your so pathetic it ain't even funny . also it's not 9 million it's 8 million more , seriously get help i hope your just a kid because i can't imagine a grown man sitting in front of his computer and write the kinda comments like that because if you are a grown man you make the Star Trek fanboys that have obsessed so much with it they actually know how to speak klingon you make them look like normal ppl with a life

@ The mart
well the 360 only outsold the ps3 by 100,000 units worldwide in Q1 when the 360 is half the price, and can do basically everything the ps3 can do, so why did it not outsell it by a ton. I find that sad.
