  1. Keeping up with Nintendo and Microsoft, who recently unveiled an intriguing motion-sensing device codenamed Project Natal, Sony is showing off its own take on this novel way of controlling games. A demonstration team for the company took the stage at E3 today and showed off a new controller (video) that works in conjunction with the PlayStation Eye to supposedly offer an experience “closer to real-life than anything you\'ve ever seen.”

    Well thats fine, keep supporting casual gamers. They make developers more money and they just don't care to play a quality game anyways. One or two addictive properties, BOOM! New game.

    If all three consoles adopt motion support as their main control method, I'm done with console gaming. This is a novelty that should have died off after the Wii's introduction.

    This just proves to me that Nintendo is King, atleast for the moment. First Microsoft, now Sony. Will they ever catch up?

    Works quite well even if it looks like it belongs in a adult store.

    I was a bit disappointed about Sony's presentation at E3, when they came to show the Motion Controller, the presentation lacked stricture to the new prototype device, and the criticism that was made by the tester, saying it was too hard for him to control, and to select items with the controller doesn't reflect good.

    I think that Sony just put up the show just not to be left out with the New Wii upgrade and the New XBox 360 Natal.

    Should make for some interesting nights.

    I'd hate to see alcohol involved with someone using this
