PDP Offers Peek at E3 Offerings, Reveals Xbox 360 Motion Controller

Performance Designed Products, or just PDP for short, just dropped us a line with a preview of their upcoming lineup for E3 this June.

Now, with the latest motion sensing technology created by In2Games, the game will interact with the player" says Chris Richards, president and CEO for the California-based PDP. "We are extremely excited to bring this unparalleled technology to first-party console manufacturers, as well as third-party publishers and developers to further heighten the level of game interaction with the player." ... "We are planning a coordinated launch with other titles from participating publishers and developers that will position PDP's Gametrak Freedom technology as the standard for the industry," said John Moore, vice president of marketing for PDP. -- TechRadar UKThe remote will be released in 2009 and work with a new game, In2Games' own Squeeballs, which you can find out about through the link. I don't know. Frankly, this doesn't impress me, at least not on an aesthetic level. The Wii remote was remarkable in how familiar it seemed, integrating familar elements into a polished final form. I don't really get that from this. Likewise, I think Darwin looks better, simply in that almost-Star Wars sort of way. What do you guys think? Read More
