To quote: The controller, reports Sony, is incredibly accurate.
"What most people are really surprised about is the precision," Sony's Kish Hirani, head of developer services, tells game site Eurogamer.
"It's scarily good. The army has had this sort of technology for a long time, so a lot of academians have seen these things, but when you see a consumer space device with this level of accuracy – that's when developers say, 'Wow.'"
Something else that might make developers say "wow"? It's possible to set the color of the controller's light up ball.
"I'm not a games designer, but if I was I might use it as a muzzle flash if you're using a gun, or use it as a paintbrush you can use to dip in and pick up different colors," Hirani adds.
"There's always room for wizards..." Color could also come in handy for when four of these controllers are used at once. Another tidbit? The new controller will have buttons!

I'm just wandering here.. how come they know what kind of technology the army has? Maybe it's nothing like this, maybe it's something different, that does something else, maybe it has a laser like thing that instantly blows the head of the enemy
IMHO that 'Army Accurate' is just to give more hype to the motion controller.
How good it will be we don't know, because if it's 'Army Accurate' I doubt that even 10% of the players have that good coordination to use it properly which can lead to a very poor usability of the motion controller.
