Second motion controller coming for PS3

sony controllerThe PlayStation 3 launched with a motion controller, but hasn’t had near the success of the Wii remote. Instead of tossing in the towel, Sony is sticking with its guns and working on a second iteration of their original design.

Many have made the claim that Sony is stealing the motion controller idea from Nintendo and reports on the new design from Sony won’t do much to stem these opinions.

Rumor has it that the new controller can break into two pieces and both have motion controller functionality, thanks to an accelerometer like those found in the Wii remote and the Apple iPhone.

With the rumors stating also that this new controller has already been shipped out to some developers, one has to wonder if Sony’s new toy will make its debut at E3 this year.
