If you think your wallet was stinging after forking out $99.95 for a Dual Shock 3, you ain't seen nothing yet. According to GamesIndustry.biz, Sony is hard at work on a brand new PS3 control pad which splits in two parts, each sporting motion sensing capabilities.
At this point it's all hush-hush, with Sony supplying units only to a few selected developers.
It's not Sony's first attempt at motion sensor control -- the PlayStation 3 Sixaxis launch controller featured a limited amount of tilty fun, but nothing that could really be compared to the Wii Remote.
The development of the new controller is an attempt by Sony to capture some of the market that Nintendo tapped into with Wii. Combine the motion sensor technology with Blu-ray, PSN and Home, and Sony could have the best of all worlds. In theory, at least.
