(or just discuss Sony's Motion Sensor/Rumble Deletion bluh bluh.)
^good pic tho^ lol
...the ps3 controller IS motion sensing.
the motion sensors work exactly the same as the wiimotes.....
Well if so, then the post is more towards the excelled use in games then it is the modification of the hardware. I ment more as in the software then the hardware.
Edited. Delete thread.
Doesn't that Lair game use the motion sensing also?
And I think you have the wii's pointing and it's motion sensing confused.
The motion sensors and the pointing are two different things. Sony has said nothing of making a motion sensitive pointing device.
Not sure of the Lair game, havnt even come across it :/
But maybe i do have them confused. It be kinda hard to have the SIXAXIS as a pointer eh?
The PS3 controller does not work the same as the Wiimote. The wiimote uses a combination of 3D triangulation and accelerometers to track both position and acceleration in 3-Dimensional space. Whereas Sixaxis only has a gyroscope to track tilt. Not motion, not location, tilt. You can point and laugh at it now.
They would of been better off with rumble. lol
Sony can't use rumble, they were sued over something stupid a few years back and basically lost the right to use rumble in their controllers.
oh? i thought it was due to them adding last minute motion sensors and the rumbling would of affected/damaged it. Oo
Why cant they use Rumble while Microsoft/Nintendo can?
That's because it isn't a pointing device, and because of it's design. I mean you can't really use a playstation controller as a baseball bat.
well you could....
Is it just me or did you contradict yourself? :idea:
No, because the "Tilt" is motion sensing. It just doesn't recognize all the motions a wiimote does. This is because of the reason I stated before. The ps3 controller would not work with it's design in the way a wiimote does. It can't be held multiple ways.
but yes as far as how they use motion sensors, they work the same, one just not as versatile.
I'm not sure of the specifics of the trial, but at least with he PS3 they can't use rumble because it would shack the gyroscope and risk screwing up the plane your flying or the car your driven in whatever game you're playing.
are you sure thought sonys controller were different as in only tilt controll as in the x and y axis and the points in between them as in wii it goes all directions
No, it's because they got sued.
There was a video of a guy using a PS, PS2, or DC (can't remember which one) with a tilt controller and... I think it had rumble. It can be done.

Sony wished that they made the wiimote in that pic. tsk tsk
