Sony "Introducing" PS3 Motion Controller To Devs At GDC

This year's Game Developers Conference will see the introduction of the PlayStation Motion Controller and our newest peek at the PlayStation 3 peripheral, the subject a newly added session at the annual gathering of developers.

The Sony-sponsored lecture will be our first new look at the hardware since Tokyo Game Show, when Sony showed off Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition with the motion controller. The device, which may ultimately named Arc but probably not Gem, will be given some developer-targeted attention.

According to the description, the "soon to be released Motion Controller for PlayStation 3 will allow developers to create new game play experiences, by allowing players to interact with their console in high definition using their bodies." How that will be done will be explained by David Coombes and Kirk Bender of SCEA, who will hopefully explain why we have to wait for the new controller.

Keep an eye out in March for our coverage of GDC 2010.
