A PS3 revolution?

Well, the Sony press conference is underway and it looks like they have some sort of motion sensor type thing in their controller, just like Nintendo. The difference is that Nintendo’s is IR related and Sony’s uses a physical gyro to sense movement. Nintendo technically has a superior design since there are no physical parts, but Sony surprised many with this new addition. However, they’ve dropped the force feedback element of their controllers (i.e. the rumbling), which they say is in part because it interferes with the gyroscopes, seems a legit issue to me.

More news as it develops.
