Sony To Split Controller Like Wiimote?

Update: Kotaku has a source on the topic that claims the new motion controller(s) will be modules that will be worn, for instance on your hands and feet, but never actually connect to each other. So not a split up dual-shock or anything. We'll see.

Sony is looking to open get their Wii on by splitting their controller into something a little more Wiimote like, according to gamesindustry.biz. It's unclear exactly how such a device would look or function, but expect an accelerometer in each like the Nunchuck and Wiimote combination. WiiHD would love to see an IR camera as well, something we consider to be the defining triumph of the Wii Remote. If a Sony device like that were heavily supported it could lead to more and better cross platform games between Sony and Wii. But since this new scheme likely wouldn't show up in the box with the system, it isn't likely to be heavily supported. Alternate controllers are alternate controllers. Call us when you ship it with the system Sony.
