so magnetometr, gyroscope, and accelerometr.. how cool is that ? :>

PSEye even won't be needed to use Move in 3D space. PS Move is more used to tracking full body gestures than Move.

long ago I read that the PSEye is also used to recalibrate if needed, so you don't need to do like the motion plus adn stop playing. But i'm not sure about it...

Also why do you need a magnetometer?

So someone wanna tell me how this differs to Wii Motion Plus?

Wii doesn't track in a 3D space/no depth like Move. Only side to side and up and down.
Wii Motion "Plus" only improves the accuracy of a normal Wii controller.

This is the outer casing and when we open it up a Wii Mote is inside! Surprise!

The Wii doesn't have all that inside. It may have the accelerometer, but that's probably it.

When Sony does something it always looking for perfection!!!

You got So much tracking, No surprise it's so accurate and can track 3D movements.

Accelerometer, gyro, magnetometer, PSEye...

I'm Very exited to have it, After disappointed from the Wii Plus shitmote.
