Sega documents reveal March 2010 launch of PS3 motion control A leaked Sega U.S. document has indicated a date for the release of motion control technology for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console. It also additionally included details on the availability of PS2 games through the PlayStation Network (PSN) online service and the availability of Dreamcast titles for download as well.
The document is a summary of a meeting held between Sega and Sony on August 5 this year. It pinpoints a March 2010 launch for PlayStation 3 motion control initially in Japan, with the goal of selling between 4-5 million units.

While the document suggested that price and bundle details may have been clarified by September 1, it doesn't hint any of that information.

It is likely that Kaz Hirai's keynote speech at the Tokyo Game Show this week will include talk of the Motion Controllers in more detail. As for the PlayStation Network (PSN) predictions, the document stated that Sony intends to sell PS2 titles (such as GTA: Vice City) via PSN, and may also sell popular Dreamcast titles with marketing support in exchange for a long period of exclusivity.

I didn't think they would scam people as quick as this. They keep going on about PS2 compatility being too costly, I wonder if when they do release Vice City (or whatever they choose to release), my disc copies will work also, I doubt it.

No chance of xbox scamming you on any of their old games, accessories or online service. If ad had emocons of someone rolling their eyes, it would go here.

I think it'd be awesome if Sony would be able to sell SWBII on PS3 via PSN.. that would be sick. Great game..
