The captions for each video are below, roughly translated as follows:
Over at the Tokyo Game Show, the presenters showed off Resident Evil 5 with the new motion sensing controller coming up for the PS3 - the 'wand'.
Fresh from the Tokyo Game Show, a video of LittleBigPlanet working with the upcoming PS3 wand has been show off.

As far as the design goes, I can understand it has a lot of utility - in terms of what it can do. But the emotional aesthetics of the device aren't winning me over right now. I'm willing to give it a shot, but my gut tells me things are not looking good in terms of public reaction (near to none).
Maybe I haven't heard the hype machine on these babies, but I hope Sony comes out with an advertising blitz for it - and more unique games that take specific advantage of the device.
Oh and Resident Evil 5. After seeing video of the mansion sequence, that definitely gets me pumped up. But please almighty - it has to be DLC for us non-wand users.
I couldnt agree with you more. I hate how people judge antything sony does before giving them a chance. This looks really intersting and fun to me. I hope all goes well and have faith it will. People blame sony for ripping off but all there doing is trying to bring every apect of gaming to their fans. Trying to make gaming more fun. Which I think is awesome.
I personally have no problem with the controller. I think it will make the game seem more real if you have red for fire like a torch or yellow for a flashlight. But mostly what you said about how the controller performs is the most important. If its perfect and fun to use I dont care what it looks like. I mean come on who sits their and stares at their controller while playing a game, no one.
And again.. why do you nag and brag about the looks when it comes to terms like how is the technical side, is it wortking correctly and smooth.. if its handy and you could use it without rampaging your hands after 1 hour of play then its great.
Others could say it will look great for them because its black and glowing differently in the dark and that would look nice... i guess thats just a thing of likes/dislikes and shouldnt be mentioned because its a controler and if it works great it shouldnt be that important how it looks.
How quick some people jumpt to conclusions that are so obvisously wrong. How could you say its build to make the way for wii-like games when you just seen 2 i say it again TWO games that just gut an little upgrade..and that in such short time.They wanted as mentioned before something to show off naturally..what do you think that they will do a full brand new game in such short times using every aspect that such a controller gives us ?
Come on be a little more down to earth... they proven now it works and they proven that they even can IMPLEMENT that in games you allready got at home soooo why brag instead of saying oh hey i could improve my games that i allready own..what a NICE GESTURE instead of allready dooming such things without knowledge of what other games and utils are in the works that got build just for that controller instead of enhancing the gamingexperience in allready stored products !
So first of all... the WII mote could be decribed a rip of of the ps2 eyetoy if you state it like that..cause one technology builds on the other in way of thinking and improving.
But ... WII and The Wand are different technologies just giving the same effect for the user.WII is infrared and sensors so in my eyes not a real motiontracking system because it just calculates from the signals it gets... PS3`s the Wand uses a cam so its really tracking motion because it "see`s" (at least thats how i perceive it) So please all stop bout that always anyoing..they stole it from them and they stole it from us... guys its technology....one company has to be the first other follow with abstractions and/or better products because of watching the first one closely ! (and thats good for YOU the customer but that is something most of you dont seem to grasp).
Who said that in the final version you need the ps3 controler and the wand ? As mentioned it was to show off that it works..and that it can be implemented in existing games.Do you really think they would do a brand new wand only resident evil or little big planet in few weeks ??
That is just a demonstration that it works not more.And its a nice upgrade if you own the games allready.. Natal isnt that innovative as some guys mentioned.In your words its a rip off of eyetoy nothing more. So you brag about holding a normal ps3 controler and the wand...but you announce that you can hold a controler even when using natal that is made only for bodymovements if im right ?Isnt that a joke right now ?
If i use your way of thoughts then wouldnt it look damn stoopid holding a controler while using natal...waving hands jumping around..kicking or whatever and at the same time flip your controler and use the buttons and so on ?... see if i want to i could make it sound like natal is a horrible idea... but without even testing it with actual games i cant... same goes for the wand and the almost funny ways of describing its demise without any good facts and just with personal likes/dislikes.
What you have to remember is that sony said most games call for two motion controllers. Now whose to say that the resident evil video just wasnt showing one aspects of the controller. Sony showed us the early stage of being able to aim and shoot with the one controller. Just for tech purposes. Later they can impliment it in to the full game to where you can use the second motion controller to turn side to side and look up and down.
All you would have to do is hold the main button to walk and then tilt the controller in the desired direction. This would ultimately give you full control over the character. I htink sony just wanted to show the precision of the aiming and shootin so they only focused on that for this demo. Just a thought from me is all.
How can you say natal is more innovative? More updated maybe. There not really any different. Take natal being able to use your body to play games. The ps eye did that on ps2 where you hit balls or drums ect. Or the video where the girl wrote on paper and the boy read it and made something out of it.
The eye has that its called EYEPET and that will be released before natal and was shown before natal. In it the pet follows your hands makes what you draw and responds to your commands. So sony is the first to do it. What natal has is a more extensive and updated version in my opinion. Its funny how sony is ripping off the wii but microsoft is innovative go figure.
