Xbox 360 Wii-mote Clone Confirmed? Code Named "Newton"

The blogger who first broke the news of Bungie's separation from Microsoft is now claiming to "confirm" the existence of the motion-sensing controller that is rumored to be in development.

"The "Newton" controller's code name is after the physicist Sir Isaac Newton. The internal Microsoft engineering code name is for this controller is "Newton" as in Newtonian Physics relating to gravity, inertia and acceleration. This is not to be confused with the defunct Apple Newton PDA, this is just and internal name, when this controller comes to market it will have a retail name."

can,t see 360 hardcore with a dildo remote, how sad would that be the bragging rights would shift way to ps3.

What would the PS3 brag about? example: "In your face Xbox, you've added another form of gameplay and versatility. Ya. Take that Xbox. You continue to to adopt new ideas from competitors and innovate."

I guess when you put it that way, you're right. Adding another aspect of gameplay to pull in additional consumers, sell more units, establish a larger userbase, and thus have more games made... is a bad idea. Good call.

If something works imitate the heck out of it

I wonder about the compatability a controller like this will have with the games already out for the 360. Will it only work for specific "Box-mote" games; or will we be able to use it in games like Dead Rising, Bioshock, Gears...

... kinda makes me wonder if the sequel to Geometry Wars that got rated recently for Aussie-land and leaked might just be the Galaxies version that came out on the Wii.

It is common in most industry to copy an existing design and improve on it. In fact most businesses that start with a new "revolutionary" idea tend to die a painful death. Nothing wrong with what MS is doing.

I commend them for copying. Otherwise we get the other criticism "why aren't MS implementing this technology, it has been out for xx number of years!"....

Think wii rip is only a good thing if it is a improvement of the Wii mote which I don't think is the cause.

With a cheaper xb360 arcade compared to an Wii this might actually be a smart move from microsoft

The wii has two main problems...1>Graphics and 2>Lack of quality take the wii controls + 360 = awesome!

Marty83703847d ago (Edited 3847d ago )

Microsoft should have consantrated on fixing the 360's hardware failure problem. No point in having this when your console is at Microsoft getting fixed most of it's life.

The 360 has a major problem...'RROD'

Rip of Wii Controls + 360 = Pointless!

gnothe13847d ago

can we have just 1 post where somebody isnt puking the RROD out off their A55. this is about a Wii mote type controller an the 360. I bet if it was the PS3 getting a Wii mote style controller you would be all for it!! stop hating HATER!!
