Sony's Motion Controller Delayed Until the Fall

Sony has reportedly delayed its motion controller, pushing the device way back to the fall.


When it was announced last summer, Sony's PS3 motion controller was set for a Spring launch. However, yesterday Sony announced that it will be delaying the device's debut until the fall. President of Sony Computer Entertainment, Kazuo Hirai, hinted that the reason for the delay could be that, at the moment, there just aren't enough titles for the technology.

"We have decided to release the Motion Controller in fall 2010 when we will be able to offer an exciting and varied line-up of software titles that will deliver the new entertainment experience to PS3 users," Hirai said in a statement.

The delay could also have something to do with the fact that Microsoft's Natal platform is also set for release in time for the holiday period. Did Sony delay the launch in order to better compete with Microsoft's own motion sensing platform? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
