    So it seems as Sony already have some WiiMotion oh sorry Sony's Motion Wand controller [​IMG] games in the pipe lines

    Resident Evil 5 (Alternative Edition)
    LittleBigPlanet Motion

    After those two games, Sony released an official list of games that use the PlayStation Motion Controller (including a handful of titles that will be upgraded via a patch.) Those games listed include:
    Ape Escape PS3
    Echochrome 2
    Eccentric Slider
    Sing and Draw
    Champions of TimeMotion Party
    The Shoot
    Tower: Unknown what this is, but we'll take a flying guess and assume this is a motion-controlled version of Jenga?
    PAIN!: aka Mr. Pain. Now you can Ooooch with your own body!
    Flower
    Hustle KingsHigh Velocity Bowling
    EyePet

    What i find courious is that RE5 AE will be controlled with the Wand thingy and a PS3 controller !? how should this work well i´m sure Capcom does it right at the end it´s just a strange control setup [​IMG].

    I hate the way the controller looks....

    It looks like one of those fake Ice-Cream toys, where you press the button, and the top flies off.

    and sony said that UMD is a failure and is planned from the beginning. Sure....and this "motion control" is also planned from the beginning?

    Im glad im a nntendo fan from the beginning.


    Hmmm...you have two controllers on one game?

    you hold the PS3 controller like normal and the "motion control" inside your right/left hands (depends which one you write on it). I can see it now.

    I can't see holding a Controller and the Motion one at the same time, that would be difficult.

    I'd love to play Resident Evil 5 with the RE4 Wii controls, but I don't think this setup is the same. I mean, a DualShock in one hand? That doesn't seem comfortable at all, I vote for a Wii version.

    Are PS3 owners really gonna buy RE5 again just for the motion controls? Should have been DLC or something.

    Isn't Microsofts Natal is said to be able to work with already owned games with just a patch (like Burnout Paradise)?

    Anyway I don't see this taking off to be honest, will do well like the Eyetoy but I don't see it stealing the Wii's thunder. Sony should concentrate on trying to get the so called "Hardcore" Nintendo gamers than the casual.

    I wonder if by "Alternate edition" it means there's going to be two versions, one regular controls only, and one motion controls only?

    I mean I know it sounds stupid, but it also sounds like something Sony would do.

    *Probably going to get flamed, but...*
    I have never seen Sony in recent years actually come out with a product that no other big gaming company has. This is really just a copy of Nintendo's (better) version, and when Natal comes out it won't be long before we hear rumours of Sony's version of the device.

    Aaahhh, feels good to get this off my chest.

    And the Eyetoy is just a version of Sega's DreamEye.

    I think it is a great concept, that they use patched to integrate the functionality of the motion controller rather then releasing the game on a disc again!

    And the IR-Pointer is just great so ciongrats to every ps3-owner, since it makes game like CoD and RE5 way better!

    I really hope Wii shovelware that will utilize this Wiimote spin-off won't be ported to the PS3.

    It'll really suck if that happened

    Thank you very much.
    Didnt know that.

    When I was having a discussion with my GF about whats better, nintendo or sony, she always said the wiimotes are just some ripoff from the eyetoy.
    But actually sony already stole the idea from sega [​IMG]

    Actually the Wiimotes are real controllers, the Eyetoy really isn't. If you just wanna say that the Wiimotes ripped off something, it'd be the Dreamcast's Fishing Rod [​IMG]

    Actually, I find the Wiimotes pretty innovative. They haven't ripped off anything.

    Oh ho! Look like there's a bit of competition starting now... and only 3 years late!
    Well, I can remember seeing a chart of Sony's controller design and how they've simply ripped off other developers controllers. Well, lets hope now most of the Wii's shovelware heads over to the PS3! [​IMG]
