"The combination of the PS3 system and PlayStation Eye camera detectsthe precise movement, angle, and absolute position in 3D space ofPlayStation Move motion controller, allowing users to intuitively playthe game as if they themselves are within the game. PlayStation Movemotion controller delivers unmatched accuracy through its advancedmotion sensors, including a three-axis gyroscope, a three-axisaccelerometer, and a terrestrial magnetic field sensor, as well as acolor-changing sphere that is tracked by PlayStation Eye camera. Through PlayStation Move system, both fast and subtle motion can bedetected, whether the user is swinging a tennis racket, or paintingwith a brush. With PlayStation Move motion controller, users canprovide direct input through action buttons and an analog trigger,while receiving physical feedback from rumble functionality and visualfeedback from the sphere's ability to display a variety of differentcolors. Furthermore, PlayStation Eye camera can capture the player'svoice or image, enabling augmented reality experiences."
Wow, super Wii copy anyone. I mean, this thing is so totally different from the Wii controllers because they have... ummm... built-in lith-ion batteries! Yea, and Bluetooth! Wait, I know. We'll add a fax lightbulb to the end!

Agreed infinity, who even can't see the similaity they are either a Sony "ps3" fanboy or stupid... Lol.
agree blatant copy but it is nice to see alternative controls hitting other systems than the Wii.
Software support will dictate it's success. Despite being inspired by the Wii, I'm curious to see how it will compete against natal and which console will have more compelling games to back their respective tech.
YA its nice to see that and it could mean wii games could become available to other systems... *waits for Microsoft to come out with copycat controller for the xbox* xD
Motion control is a good thing to see on multiple platforms. Just imagine using something like this on an HTPC that is linked to a 3D TV or Holographic display. I am not much for consoles personally. The control method lends itself to many other platforms in the long run though.
The Wii has Blue Tooth as well. No difference there.
This is inspired by the Wii, but is different. This controller will have six axis compared to the Wiimote's three. The Move is reliant on the PS Eye, where the Wiimote looks for the Sensor bar for direction (or two candles if you prefer). The bulb not only gives it's position to the Eye, but developers can program so that the remote will look like a tennis racket onscreen if you are playing a game that uses your actual picture in the game. The Move also have a 1:1 ratio for movement, and will be compatible in all Move-enabled games. The Wiimote needs the MotionPlus to achieve the same results, and is not compatible in all games.
You can also use Two Moves for one player. The Wiimote has to have a Nunchuck in all cases.
