A French gaming website, Objectif Sega has uncovered an internal Sega memo (Gizmodo says it looks "legit") that speaks to a March launch in Japan for Sony's new motion-capture controller.

The controller should hit the US later on in the Spring, and with it will come a bunch of new Sega games. According to the memo, Sony is in talks with Sega about gaining a long-term exclusivity agreement to the rights of several major Dreamcast titles. (For you young'ns; the Dreamcast was a Sega console that failed spectacularly.) That is very exciting news. For all its flaws, the Dreamcast had some of the best games of its generation.

The memo also spoke to PSP/PS3 interoperability. My best guess is that they want to find ways to bundle the motion controller and PSP together. Sony wants to induce customers to buy both, so they're looking for ways to make both items necessary for the best Sony gaming experience. At least that's my take on it.

Spring release for the Sony motion controller is more or less what we'd anticipated. While we still need independent verification, these rumors seem pretty on-the-level to me. Of course, I could just be getting overly hopeful about seeing my favorite Dreamcast titles again. Ahh, memories...
