Sony Delays PS3 Motion Controller To Autumn

leave a comment »

Sony has today confirmed that their as of yet untitled motion controller for the PS3, has been moved back from its previous Spring release window to an Autumn release window for all territories.

While there is still no official title for the device, many rumours and ‘trusted sources’ are pointing toward the device being called ‘Arc’, as opposed to the ‘Gem’ moniker that EA Boss John Ritociello gave it a couple of months back.

According to Sony Computer Entertainment President Kaz Harai:

“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 Sony Computer Entertainment president Kaz Hirai.

“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 expand and define the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home.”

The delay to a Fall release window, more or less puts the device on a head to head with Microsoft’s competing motion control system; Project Natal.
