that,s got to be a good thing,that cheap ass controller maker thought they were on to a good thing.they soon backed off when they seen what tech was required to make the move .these suckers thought it was a wimote upgrade to make cheap then realized they couldn,t make it to sell at a profit.stick to the gen article these cheap ass controls are sh*t.

To Be Honest...
I never go for 3rd party peripherals anymore!

they're cheaper, but in the past they've disappointed me.

I can't stand MadCatz...
The best was probaly Logitech...I got this wireless PS2 controller from them, and it's still working just fine..but it also cost me about the price of the original controller itself.

This isn't really news to me...I prefer the original hardware anyway..

Game on!

This is really not that big of a deal. Has Sony even finalized the product for launch? Nobody..... The Move knock of doesn't have the tracking ball on it, if they were trying to shunt that part of the feature into a Wii like sensor there is no possible way they could get it to work right. It is also possible these clowns have no actual work prints to build a knock off with, they probably tried to use a Wiimote for the obvious basis so they could get it out early. It would be like them trying to release a third party Natal in June as well, there is no possible way on gods green Earth they would succeed. I would venture that Sony and Microsoft as complex as they can to avoid knockoffs for some time, especially to keep them for being able to release an inferior prodcut early.

or the move
will be similar in price
a bigger step into the future
sony's motion is more advanced that we think
or the move is more than just a wii-mote

I remember someone making a Wiimote-esque controller for both the 360 and the PS3 as well. I think it was a different controller than this one. Did that get cancelled as well?

When I saw the original story five months ago I was like WTF. Now I'm like go fig.

no wonder they cancelled it, too similar to the wiimote, it had nothing to do with how hard it is to make games work with it, they was afraid of Sony handing their arses to ninty, besides it would have got owned by ps move which is the most accurate and precise motion controller to date

But it would definitely had been cheaper. Much cheaper.
