January 20, 2010 Written by Anthony Severino

Originally slated for a Spring 2010 release, Sony have just announced that the PS3 Motion Controller (tentatively named) will be available in Fall of 2010.

Sony have just issued a press release which states:

“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.”

Sony plans to release the Motion Controller as the de facto PS3 controller along-side the Dualshock 3. The Motion Controller which needs the PlayStation Eye to properly function will release “in fall 2010 in Japan, Asian regions and countries, North America and Europe/PAL territories together with an extensive line-up of exciting software titles”.

This delay shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s just one of our many predictions for 2010.
