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'.

The controller already has a few buttons, they showed what they showed only because they don't want to give out the design, which buttons are available, etc... but in theory, you could do a lot of things with the controller itself... also, they said they'd like people to be able to play games with one controller, but having two is better.. i think you could play LBP with two motion controllers instead of a dual shock + MC... I'm not really sure though...
but either way, the worst case I think is that you'd use the dualshock for the left analog stick, and the motion controller for the right side (face buttons, and motion for replacing the right stick), so you won't need to hold the dualshock with two hands anyway.. but yeah, that would still suck..
@agoudeau, it's not a ripoff of the wii, go have a look at the first eyepet stuff, Sony had this motion controller thing as well as using the camera to detect gestures (what natal does) back in the days of the PS2 before the wii was even invented and before project natal was a thought...
They just took longer than Nintendo to make it into a product, but they took that long because they want to do it right..
also, with project natal, I have no idea on how their camera would detect WHAT exactly you're pointing at and what you're trying to grab and how you'd grab it if you have no controller in your hands... makes no sense!
hi i'm really a big fan of the PS3 but i'm sorry i'm really not liking what i see!!!
for me this playstation motion controller is in no way a breakthrough it really does feel like a direct rip off of the wiimote even if it's more accurate.. and holding the dual shock in one hand?! that's stupid! and if they do a nunchuk it will be worse.
for me i'm sorry but natal is way way more innovative and you can still hold a controller with natal! i really do think that sony is totally lost right now not able of defining a precise strategy for the futur, please bring back kutaragi!!!
