Motion Sensitive PS3 Controller to Debut at E3?

2009's E3 may is shaping up to be a very interesting one, in rumour at least. Sony is already apparently showing the PSP Go! - the purported next-generation PlayStation Portable - and now it's being reported that we'll be seeing motion sensitive PS3 controllers, too.

According to Kombo a "source, which has a superb track record for accuracy" has revealed the details. According to Kombo, the PS3 controller on display at E3 will offer similar motion tracking abilities to the Wiimote. We can expect precision similar to Wii Motion Plus, not the standard Wii remote isn't what you could call accurate. Something akin to Sixense perhaps?

The new controller won't be a replacement for the existing Dual Shock 3 controller, but will rather be made available as an optional input device for select publishers.

Is a new console and a new way of using an existing one too much to hope for from E3?

Unless it's packed in the box no one will use it.

@Luan Bach, not necessary, look at the wiifit did not come with the box(Nintendo wii) but everyone brought it.

if this new PS3 controller is better then the Wiimote and it will have great games with it, then every body will buy it and use it.

Wiifit is a platform in itself that you cannot replicate with any other controller and an anomaly in that it is a killer app. You'll need to put it in the same box as the game and Sony has to supply the killer app at launch, what are the odds of that ?

It doesn't need to come with the console, just the big showcase games. Look at things like the Buzz! button pads, Singstar mics, etc, etc.
