PlayStation motion controller revealed

Spring 2010 release for new peripheral with multiple applications

Sony has unveiled its answer to the Wii Remote with a controller that works in tandem with the PlayStation Eye to track motion in 3D.

The controller, presented on-stage by Dr Richard Marx, who worked on the original EyeToy, admitted that the technology had been in the works for several years, and "far surpasses any technology on the market now" - although he obviously made no mention of Microsoft's reveal of Project Natal.

The demonstration featured a variety of different applications for the controller, including various sporting environments, an archery demonstration and a light saber effect.

The controller is set for a Spring 2010 release, although no specific title compatibility was announced.
