The controller is apparently still at the research and design stage and it is unclear if it will ever be released. Check the forums for a more detailed description from a source at TXB.

Yes, but it's a rip from PS3 and WII's SIXAXIS sensors.

Good point. Microsoft is just copying Sony and Nintendo now.

Yup, I agree with this, but the device looks like it gives more freedom of movement.Smile
Still, we can't tell without trying it out first, but as long as the controls are smooth, it should work great.
