Games line-up for Sony's motion controller (from G4TV)
LAME! I can think of a few titles that would benefit from motion control more than some of them...

- super stardust HD (motion control AND 3d would be awesome!)
- red alert 3
- savage moon

Hopefully they wouldnt think of using a motion controler for a 3rd person zombie survival game

I would call it the PS3 Mote ... Nah... does not really make much sense what its name is... anything worse then Nathal (for 360) will be hardly impossible.
