Not to be outdone by Microsoft’s Project Natal TGS news, Sony has announced new details on the still-to-be-officially-named PS3 Motion Controller. First up comes confirmation (or reconfirmation I guess I should say) of a planned launch in Spring 2010. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but the controller will work in tandem with the PlayStation Eye camera and feature two motion sensors, three axes gyroscope, three axes accelerometer, Bluetooth 2.0 support, a built-in lithium-ion rechargeable internal battery, and DualShock tech for force feedback.

Sony has also announced some early Motion Controller games that are currently in development at the company’s Worldwide Studios and a few existing titles that will have motion control support patched in, games like PAIN, Flower and EyePet. Kotaku is reporting that a Resident Evil 5 re-release and LittleBigPlanet will receive motion control features as well, which is pretty exciting news.

Look below for the Motion Controller games Sony has confirmed thus far.
