    (Thanks romj for the insight, appreciated.)

    You welcome.

    I just don't see this as a threat, unless Nintendo is really slacking on keeping up with this year's holiday season supply, this just seems like a cheap attempt to soak up a couple bucks from the incredibly cheap and the hopelessly desperate.
    I don't see it as a threat either, rather, I see it as a compliment.

    Sure it isn't the other way around?

    Then again, the motion controls in the Wii/PS3 isn't anything new either, if you have not seen this you should...

    So yeah, motion control was available for the PS1/N64 long before the mass market got a hold of it.

    Seriously, the Playstation is in fact the illegitimate b*stard child of the "to be" SNES-CD that never came to be, so in reality who is copying who?

    (Note: I went ahead and self-censored the word even though it is being used in it's proper form, much like the proper term for a female dog this word is also used improperly and delivered as common insult.)

    The Sony Wand:





    To be honest, I think Sony would be mad not to make something like this. It would make the PS3 complete. Something you can use like a sword, but also as a pointer.
    Yes it would be blatant copying of nintendos idea, but hey, welcome to the real world. As long as they dont copy anything patented i'd definitely swap my wii for a PS3 if they did something similar.

    I think they should desidn something round that actually looks like a lightsaber without the light bit. Something that is actually ergonomically designed for your hand rather than being like any other remote control unit.

    Joystiq: Sony has its own magic wand in the works

    From what Joystiq is saying, Sony's idea uses something just opposite of Nintendo's sensor setup, and had there "wand" produce the light while the sensor (ie Eye Toy) mapped out the position. Same concept, at least as a pointing device. I assume they'd just roll over there "Six-Axis" to this wand as well.

    As far as the posted photo by f1982, it's a great find, however I don't think Sony would go so far as to even rip off the exact light pattern commonly found at the bottom of Nintendo's design. I would guess if they decided to go so far as to at least mimic Nintendo's play style I think they'd complicate it by developing a DVD remote/controller hybrid and at least come up with a more original player light indication scheme that doesn't match Nintendo's with such precision. Such a blatant rip-off without any form "originality" at all would not look good on Sony, however who ever composed that image did a very nice job despite it being a home-brew "photoshop" hack.

    Oh yeah, for sure that picture is a mock up and was supposed to be a joke by the person who made it.
    There is also this one:


    The idea is sound though.
    It should happen.

    if sony really feels as a loser, and they admit that they have lost, they can copy now nintendo, just to show how low-class company they can get, when they are really in trouble.....

    they'll also have to spent millions and millions if they want a motion sensing console, please, don't hope that this kind of thing will happen in less than 5 years.....also.....nintendo now shows that they have the best technology, and truely their console is considered as nex-gen!!!

    (even if i love sony and ps3....) sony is a true loser if they just copy nintendo so fast!!!

    have you also heard about the nds emulator for the psp.....?????

    that shows by how much nintendo finally rules again, even if Game Cube wasn't so successfull ..... ;p

    *these pictures seem as fake as they are, do not expect something like this to happen for ps3, for which thing will it be used......??? some on.....

    nds emulators are not made by sony isn't it? hehe.. However, for the next-next gen.. I really do hope that somebody could make a console that has the motion sensing capabilities of wii and the visual power of the ps3 into one and it should be affordable. hehe..
