Sony Sets ‘Arc’ GDC Plans in Motion

February 16, 2010 Written by Anthony Severino

Although Sony’s upcoming motion controller has been delayed to Fall 2010, we’ll be getting more information on the controller early next month when the Game Developers Conference hits. Sony has booked a 60 minute session dubbed “Introducing the PlayStation 3 Motion Controller”…

The session is aimed at educating potential developers for the controller/platform and is being presented by David Coombes (Platform Research Manager, SCEA Developer, SCEA), Kirk Bender (SCEA Developer Support, SCEA). The description on the official GDC website reads:

“The soon to be released Motion Controller for PlayStation 3 will allow developers to create new game play experiences, by allowing players to interact with their console in high definition using their bodies. The Motion Controller uses 3D position and orientation tracking, camera input and a controllable RGB LED to bridge the gap between camera, motion and traditional interfaces.”
