Sony officially unveiled the PlayStation 3 controller at this year’s E3 and it looks like the boomerage is out and the DualShock is back in. However, this time around the Dual Shock has dropped shock support in favor of motion capturing. The PS3 controller will feature six axis of of movement — roll, pitch, and yaw. Wait a second, don’t I remember another game company alrady unveiling a motion capturing controller?
The PS3 controller will be wireless using Bluetooth and charging via USB. Oh wait, that sounds a lot like the XBox 360’s play and charge. I gotta tell you, Sony wins for originality with the new PS3 controller.
