Sony Delays Launch Of PS3 Motion Controller

Sony has just announced that its motion control peripheral for the PlayStation 3 will not, as originally planned, be shipping in Spring 2010.

"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," says Kaz Hirai, boss of Sony Computer Entertainment.

"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 expand and define the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home".

Not the world's biggest shock, since Spring is right around the corner (and we'd still seen/heard so little of the device), but if the delay means more/better games for it in the Fall, then all the better.
