PlayStation Motion Controller Delayed Until Fall


image Sony won’t be releasing their motion controller in spring as originally planned. The still unnamed device has been rescheduled for launch this fall.


"We have decided to release the Motion Controller in fall 2010 when we will be able to offer an exciting and varied line-up of software titles that will deliver the new entertainment experience to PS3 users, " said Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.


"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."


One of those third party games was Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, which Sony demoed at Tokyo Game Show. Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition is still on track for spring. It’s unclear if Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition will still be compatible with the motion controller via a patch or if plans were scrapped.


Announced first party games include The Shoot, Echochrome: Reality Theory, Champions of Time, and a new Ape Escape game.
