Engadget has released information that Sony will be debuting their new motion-sensing controller for the PS3 at E3. Kombo stated last month that several developers are already working on incorporating motion-sensors into already released games.

We've reported before that there were rumors of an Xbox motion sensor as well, but this is the first solid piece of evidence we've seen. Engadget recieved word that Microsoft had developed a sensor bar to monitor whole-body motion for the 360. An actual photo of the set-up is out now, complete with what appears to be the on-screen calibration tool and the motion sensor hooked in front of the television.

The source from within Microsoft revealed that the device will be able to capture a full body's motion, and also gave some hints as to the device's other features;

-In fighting games you kick, punch, duck, dive, jump and so forth with your body.

-It also picks up small hand gestures like pinching, grabbing and scrolling.

There will also be video conferencing and games with video.

-Trivia game over the internet with live images of each person playing. When a question pops up, they can clap to buzz in.

-You can "move objects on your screen" and the other party can see what you're doing in real time.

-Sensor detects only the person playing, not folks observing on the couch.

From Engadget.

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing what a set-up like this will do for fully immersive RPGs and MMORPGs. Social interactions in these games, including gestures and on-screen character mapping based on the player themselves, is coming into a whole new era of possibilities. We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
