Sony lists internal wand launch projects

Echochrome 2! Ape Escape! Bowling.

As well as promising Resident Evil 5: Director's Cut and LittleBigPlanet support for the PS3's wand motion controller, Sony today revealed a list of launch games being developed internally to make use of it.

They are: Ape Escape, Echochrome 2, Eccentric Slider, Sling and Draw, Champions of Time, Motion Party, The Shoot, Tower, PAIN, Flower, Hustle Kings, High Velocity Bowling and EyePet. Some of those are on the market already of course, suggesting we'll see patches via PSN, and some of the others sound like extensions of technical demos showcased at E3.

The motion controller is due out in spring 2010 and features two motion sensors, a three-axes gyroscope, three-axes accelerometer, a rechargeable battery and Bluetooth connection to the PS3, and a bit of rumble. It requires the PlayStation Eye camera to play, as it works in conjunction with the big-headed little peripheral.
