    To clarify, the pad looks identical to the PS3 controller and has the same motion tracking technology used in the PS3 controller.

    Did see a pic, but it has vanished into thin air.

    the sidewinder pro only did tilt technology (and was utter tat)

    i think this (and the ps3 one) has motion tracking so you can move it right, and it picks that up..

    Hmm, from the headline I thought that Sony might be selling and supporting it. As it is, this will die a death like every other odd controller released for the PC; because there's no central authority to mandate thier integration in games.

    I hope Microsoft integrate the 360 pads really nicely into Vista, and make there use much easier and widespread in PC gaming.
