Since its unveiling at E3, there hasn't been much info on the PS3 motion controller. Today will be different, now that we'll get a bigger picture of what the PlayStation Eye-powered controller has in store for us. Taking off from the details they revealed at the expo, Sony now coughs out more details for their motion control project.
Addressing its development partners, Sony Computer Entertainment revealed that the PS3 motion controller will come with force feedback rumble, adding that its "face-tracking and head-tracking capability already in the PS3 SDK" will offer developers "powerful tools for new types of user interaction." The controller will also work with the PlayStation Eye's built-in mic array for voice input and recognition.
Apart from the controller, Sony is also currently looking into integrating the existing PS3 controller functions into the PlayStation Eye, like using the PS3 MC as a sword and the DualShock 3 as a shield, which shouldn't be too much of a task since the PlayStation Eye can handle up to four of the new motion controllers simultaneously.
Still no pricing at this point, but Sony has revealed that they're aiming for a Spring 2010 launch, accompanied by a selection of first and third-party content, supporting all sorts of genres from casual to core.
