Motion Sensitive PS3 Controller to Debut at E3?

Less unlikely a rumour than a redesigned PSP at least.

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?
