    Sony to Copy Nintendo



    I'm Sure Nintendo Attorney's are all over this one... !!!! (LOL)

    That's because an unnamed games development source went along to MCV sister site Develop and revealed that Sony's new motion controller device - perhaps labelled the Arc, subject to copyright law - will work alongside an optional Nunchuck-style add-on, similar to that available on the Wii.

    The character also went onto say that claims the controller's final execution will be very similar to the Wii but will allow developers to move forward with the power of HD.

    Still, the future of the Arc - in name only - is under threat from Microsoft, which holds the rights to the name Arc after releasing products under that title a few years ago.

    More details about the Arc will be revealed on Thursday on stage at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. (gamezine)
