The Other PS3 Motion Controller

By Spencer . October 7, 2009 . 5:04pm

Sony’s yet-to-be-named motion controller won’t be ready until spring 2010. Third party accessory maker Blaze is hoping to a capitalize on this with their own “Nintendo Wii-mote style motion sensing controller”.




That’s their controller, which, according to their press release, has full PS3 functions and Wii style gaming activity. Doesn’t appear to be compatible with Sony’s official motion controller either since Blaze’s device works without a camera and senses movement with internal sensors – like a regular PlayStation 3 controller. Basically, you’re getting a Sixaxis wand which might work with High Velocity Bowling, Flower, and Lair.


Seems kind of silly and almost as mind boggling as their WiiFit fitness weights.

    People will think it’s actually a “motion controller.” I think it’ll screw Sony over because people might start thinking that Sphere is nothing more than six axis with a different name as well.

      Oh yeah. And the obvious blatant Wiimote ripoff. Which will probably have a ton of Nintendo fanboys saying that Sony is copying Nintendo again.

    As they say in Japan; “OROKA!” (How foolish). And yeah, I’d say it is foolish. This’ just asking for Nintendo to spill lawsuits

    Oh, my.
