Sony postpones PS3 Motion Controller Launch

Sony Corporation postponed the launch of a motion controller for the PS3 from spring 2010 to a date later in the autumn of the same year. The device had been designed to enhance the control features in the PS3 and introduce motion gaming to PS3 gamers.

Currently, the Nintendo Wii gaming console already features a controller that allows motion gaming – letting you actually swing your arms to play tennis, bowling, and other games. The Wii’s sales are beating the PS3 sales by a fair margin and the release of this motion controller was predicted to give Sony an edge over its competitors. The controller uses a camera to detect your hand movement, and then loads it in the game.

The game division at Sony stated that the delay was to allow for more software to become available, so that the users make the most out of the controller.

This delay was the second in line after the first delay, involving the release of the latest edition of the super-hit game ‘Gran Turismo’ – originally slated for release sometime in March this year. The company has not declared a new release date for the Gran Turismo as of now. Meanwhile, Microsoft plans to launch a controller-free gaming system – Project Natal – sometime in the holiday season this year.

Before the delay announcement, Sony stock closed at 3,060 yen – which was down 0.2%. It fared better than the main electrical machinery index of Tokyo – which had gone down 0.9%.

Xbox might let you watch ESPN very soon

It seems that the Xbox 360 is going to be redefined again – this time with live streaming content from ESPN. According to an NY Times report, Microsoft and Disney held talks to bring live ESPN content to the popular gaming console for a small subscription fee. This seems to be in a bid to tackle the competition with respect to the amount of media content available on the console.

Previously, the Xbox has been the only gaming console to allow users to watch streaming movies – using Netflix. However, the Sony PS3 and the Nintendo Wii soon caught up and now, all three feature different levels of non-gaming media content.

However, the main test for Xbox in introducing ESPN features will be the viewer response – and whether they will be willing to pay more money to view streaming sports. Some feel that this might be too much to ask. However, if the success of Xbox Live is anything to go by, ESPN services on the Xbox are sure to be a hit

Although Microsoft and Disney both refused to shed light on the NY Times story, according to an anonymous source, the ESPN deal was as yet not on the cards.

In March last year, Microsoft and Sky struck a deal in the UK enabling Sky to broadcast content on gaming consoles – even overseas. This generally gave the feeling that similar deals were in the offing for Microsoft in the US too. Keeping the success of previous (similar) ventures in mind, Microsoft and Disney would have to have real strong reasons to not formalize something like the ESPN deal.
