Nintendo America Inc. president Reggie Fils-Aime this month described Sony Corp.'s Playstation Move motion controller for the Playstation 3 as a Wii copycat in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.
"Looking at what PlayStation is doing, it feels very 'Wii-too'," Fils-Aime told the publication.
When asked to comment on Microsoft Corp.'s Project Natal gesture control system for the Xbox 360 he said "we'll wait and see when they actually show off their software.
Sony in Mar. took a pre-emptive strike at Wii and Natal in a new online video that discredits competitor technology.
The Playstation Move utilizes two motion sensors, three axes gyroscope, three axes accelerometer to detect controller angle and movement, Bluetooth 2.0 and a Lithium-Ion rechargeable internal battery.
It is used in combination with the current Playstation Eye peripheral.
Sony this month said the Playstation Move will be sold in a Starter Kit for under $100.
In addition, Sony will sell stand-alone controllers, including a Move sub-controller with analog stick, and a bundle with the PS3 hardware and Move at a to-be-announced price.
Playstation Move games in development include Move Party, Motion Fighter, Sports Champions, The Shoot, TV Superstars, and Brunswick Pro Bowling.
Move compatible titles include SOCOM 4, EyePet, and Toy Story 3.
