Saw the new PS3 with motion sensing control, does anyone know if there is more substance to the new console?

PS3's motion sensing is the last minute "steal" from Nintendo's WII gyro... truth is, gyro control/motion sensing was used in MS's freestyle pro controller, and MS did not choose it in xbox 360 due to the lack of softwares/games that would actually use of it.


In fact, it's funny to think this but... did you know, Sony stole a lot from Nintendo... PS1 stole D-PAD from Nintendo/Sega, PS2 stole Analog joystick from Nintendo N64, Sony's LaunchPad (online service) idea stole from Microsoft's Xbox Live, and now Sony's motion sensing stole from Nintendo's Wii.




Internet is my backyard...
