Did you think that the SIXAXIS was the only motion control solution for the PS3? Well not for long, and I'm not talking about Sony's untitled "wand" controller. BLAZE is getting ready to release the Motion Sensing 3D Freedom Controller
to bring "Wii style action" to the PS3. I'm a bit skeptical--if I owned a PS3 I wouldn't want the Wii's crappy waggle controls bolted onto my favorite games, unless it was more like the accuracy of WiiMotion Plus. I also think BLAZE needs to work on their product titles--this controller's name works better as an acronym and doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
Still, I'm interested to see how this turns out. As more consoles implement motion sensing the Wii won't be able to stand on that gimmick anymore, and Nintendo will actually have to make good games again to earn their pay.
