Wii competitor codenamed 'Newton' claims website

Xbox 360 motion sensing controller confirmed?

The Xbox 360 motion-sensing controller reported previously is real, says 8BitJoystick, and will see a release before the end of the year.

According to what the site calls ‘internal sources at Microsoft’, the tech will be remarkably similar to the Wii’s, with a sensor bar, accelerometer, gyroscopic sensor, rumble motors, wireless two-way communication with the 360 and a microphone voice Xbox Live and voice-controlled games.

Microsoft is also rumoured to have licenced patents from Gyration, a company that was hired by Nintendo to create a prototype of the Wii controller in 2001. It also licences the same patents for its current hardware.
