PlayStation platform holder Sony has confirmed that its upcoming PS3 Motion Controller will not now be launched until the autumn.
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, ” SCE boss Kaz Hirai stated.
We will continue to work to have a comprehensive portfolio of attractive and innovative games for the Motion Controller, not only from SCE Worldwide Studios but also from the third party developers and publishers, whom we have been working closely with.
We look forward to soon unveiling the exciting software line-up that further expands and defines the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home.”
A March launch had previously been touted, though this later changed to simply some time this year.
The date brings the device roughly in line with Microsoft's Natal, which is currently scheduled to hit shelves in time for the holidays”.
