Six Degrees of Muscle Strain

"The controller's got X-Y-Z, pitch, roll, yaw, lateral motion detection. The controller uses bluetooth and wireless controls. It's lighter than the PS2 controller. This is interesting, because it suddenly makes Microsoft look like the odd man out on the motion-sensing controller front. "

Well, that's going to completely shag my RSI, then.

Is it just me, or does it make no sense at all to include motion sensors in a joypad?

In a wand - a pointing device - it makes plenty of sense. But in a joypad?

I know that Sony has to copy every interface advance that Nintendo comes up with (they always have, from analogue stick, through rumble feature to motion sensors), but you'd think they'd have a sensible think about it before rushing in half cocked.


Hope all is well!
