Though it was initially scheduled for a release during the 2010 Spring season, Sony has announced that the release of its currently unnamed motion controller has been moved to the Fall of 2010. The main reason for the move appears to be that Sony wishes to ensure a stronger and more diversified range of software supporting the motion controls.
Sony once again reiterated that it will position the motion controller as the de facto Playstation 3 input device alongside the regular DualShock controller, indicating that Sony intends to develop the platform further beyond being a simple accessory.
A release date during the Fall 2010 season means the motion controller shares a release window with Project Natal, the motion controller that is being developed for the Xbox 360, which is scheduled for an unspecified release date before the holiday season. Earlier this week, rumors spread that the motion controller will be known as the “Playstation Arc”, though this remains unconfirmed.
