WSJ Apes X360 Motion Leaks

Rumors of a Xbox full-body motion controller gained fuel on Tuesday with a story corroborating the claims. The Wall Street Journal mirrors the earlier leaks and says the peripheral will hinge on a 3D camera system that recognizes not just basic movement but also depth, giving it more control than a device like Sony's EyeToy. It reportedly may show at the E3 gaming event, which starts June 2nd, but probably wouldn't ship until 2010 even if so.

The controller, which may use technology sourced from 3DV, is believed to be Microsoft's response to the Nintendo Wii's dominance of the console gaming market and would also recognize specific gestures and sounds, not just images. Sony is also believed to be planning a PlayStation equivalent.
