SCEE president and CEO David Reeves has hit back at criticism of PS3's motion sensing controller, insisting that it has, in fact, been in development for over two years.
Despite claims to the contrary by senior figures at rival Nintendo, Reeves told MCV that Sony had been working on the controller long before details of the Wii controller were revealed at the Tokyo Games Show last year.
"We've had a positive reaction to the controller and obviously some people have asked if it's a last minute thing," said Reeves. "It's not - it's been planned for around two and a half years."
