Sony: Motion Controller Is Coming This Year

In a statement released today to the press, SCEA senior director of corporate communications Patrick Seybold confirmed that Sony will be delivering its answer to Microsoft's Project Natal before the end of the year.

The story is too old to be commented.

"2010 will offer entirely new gaming experiences to consumers as we launch MAG, God of War III, 3D gaming, and the new motion controller this year.”

The statement seems to be in chronological order.
So it will come out after Sony's 3D firmware update?

@ 1.1 Yea same here

I wulda rather heard "Coming this Spring"

legendkilla3253d ago

i thought spring as well... wait and see i guess

AKNAA3253d ago

I think the next time that Sony shows their motion controller, its gonna come out with a BANG! Jaw dropping amazing sh1t!

til then, Sony will just watch and let MS talk this'n that all they want about natal cause it's just creating more pressure on themselves not to fail in any way of many will be extremely disappointed.

I believe in the wands 100% after watching that sword & shield tech demo at for natal, not so much.

Wasn't it supposed to come out in two months??

If not, why are they releasing Resident Evil 5 for Sony's motion controller in march?

The Resident Evil game, I thought, was confirmed for 'spring' in Japan. Since Mr. Seybold works for SCEA perhaps the 'sphere' is not being launched worldwide at the same time but in the spring for Japan and later for the rest of the world? (bad choice imo)

n4gn4gn4gn4g3253d ago

The way I read that is that the content is coming in the spring but the functionality of motion control might not be there for the US/EU market until later.

They need to turn that E3 tech demo with the sword fighting and archery into a medieval hack and slash with great graphics. I'll buy two controllers for that.

Darkstorn3252d ago

Considering how little we've seen of it, I highly doubt it would be coming before fall 2010. Looks like this is going to go right up against Natal.

Sony need to shake up the people working on this, otherwise it gives the impression of a half arsed product.

Natal is too much hype and the marketing for psmotion seems to think no attention is good attention lol.

edit: If i were in charge get studio japan to do a new build of folklore built around motion control but keeping costs down same with a new installment of Siren with some cool augmented reality instead of eyepet in your living room its the girl from the ring, some ape escape party games.
Get ea and sega to do a fitness game and tennis, and delay heavy rain so it uses the controller and bundle it for a knockdown price, prove it can be used for some serious stuff.

Still not sold on this idea. I'll need some hands-on before I start to care. Did look impressive, though.

Blaster_Master3253d ago

hands on what controller? Oh you were talking about natal. *rolls eyes*

dalibor3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

I concur, a hands on preview yourself would be the best thing to really see how good it is. I think that after the motion controller is released every game from then forth should have an option whether to be played by a controller or the motion wand. That is if there are going to be games that could be played both ways.

DaTruth3253d ago

What do they mean "answer"! They were both announced at the same event and Sony actually had a working prototype and are also launching sooner.

Answer to Wiimote maybe!

unrealgamer583253d ago

if sony made a star wars game with the combat style of naruto ultimate ninja storm the world would stop the next day

Doc Sony3253d ago (Edited 3253d ago )

Thats all they need to do to win a lot of people over IMO, release a decent Star Wars FPS with good graphics and story.

ThatCanadianGuy3253d ago

That's the first thing i thought of when they showed off that sword & shield demo.

A star wars game with true 1.1 motion would be SICK!

Edit: Now that i think about it..
That Sword & shield demo was pretty badass too!
