Sony: PS3 motion controller "rumour and speculation"

A full reveal is being tipped for E3 say "several sources"

Sony will reveal an advanced motion-sensing controller for PS3 at this year's E3 show in LA, according to "several sources".

The rumours stem from a Sony patent that did the rounds way back in 2007, which detailed new motion sensing tech that uses three LEDs and a small camera to detect the controller's exact position - far more accurately than the Wii Remote in theory.

Sony has select developers already on the case to develop early software for it, and the new device will be revealed in some form at E3, according to a Variety report.

Sony UK told CVG it won't comment on "rumour or speculation".
