For most of its life, the Nintendo Wii Remote has been sheathed in rubber, its native form factor obscured over fears of death and destruction. Sony's Move controller, on the other hand, will breathe the free air.

Raising the prospect of smashed TVs with Sony Computer Entertainment's studio boss, Shuhei Yoshida replied "What's good about the sphere is that it's very, very robust.
