Since then, Sony America marketer Peter Dille has revealed that Sony's motion sensing development kits have already been making their way into the hands of developers.
Dille also revealed that Sony is a bit past the research phase, to quote:
But it seems as if Sony's motion tech is more near completion than previously thought. Sony America marketer Peter Dille told GameSpot that its already found its way into developers hands.
"We're a little bit past the research phase," he said. "We're having conversations with the third-party community. The dev kits have started to go out to the third parties as well. They're working on the tech. They couldn't be more excited about it."
We must admit it did look lots of fun fun aiming arrows at skeletons, as Sony did during its presentation.
That said the smart money would be on Microsoft's Project Natal arriving before PS3's own movement detecting device. Not before Wii MotionPlus hits stores though.
