Even though Microsoft may have gotten a head start on Sony by launching their motion controller first, Sony is attempting to be the first one to actually come out with it. Recently, Sony has announced that the motion controller will be releasing in the fall of 2010. They will be coming out with the controller along with a lot of new games to play along with it.
Sony president Kazuo Hirai described in a statement:
“We will continue to work to have a comprehensive portfolio of attractive and innovative games for the Motion Controller, not only from SCE Worldwide Studios but also from the third party developers and publishers, whom we have been working closely with. We look forward to soon unveiling the exciting software line-up that further expands and defines the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home.”
Sony also talked of their plans to “vigorously promote the Motion Controller as the de facto controller of the PS3 platform along with the DUALSHOCK series controller.”
Microsoft’s Project Natal has one other thing over Sony. The name that will be presented to Sony’s controller is still unknown while Microsoft has had a title for a pretty long time. Make sure to keep checking for new information about these two motion controllers!
