Motion control to be 'essential' to PS3
Chatting merrily with GI.biz at E3, new Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Andrew House has said that motion-sensing will become an 'essential' part of the PS3 package.
He used the word 'essential' to describe the new wand-based system that will make Wii-like motion control possible on the console.
"But the PlayStation 3 is also one of the best Blu-ray players around for high-definition movies and that almost gets lost in the mix," he enthused.
"That gives it an enormous sense of longevity, people want the best if they are buying into high-definition entertainment from a television standpoint or from a movie standpoint. That's an inherently long lifecycle and it helps bolster the traditional gaming lifecycle as well."
