Sony Computer Entertainment is still confident that it would release its motion-sensing game controller next Spring, the company is reported to have said during a meeting with game developer Sega. The electronics conglomerate also expects to sell around 4 – 5 million of its innovative game controllers next year, which is likely to make it the most popular, but not a compulsory, accessory for the PlayStation 3.

According to Sega’s internal meeting notes written after meeting with Sony Computer Entertainment America on the 5th of August (the notes were published by Joystiq web-site), Sony plans to launch its motion-sensing controller in March 2010 in Japan. In total, the company hopes to sell 4-5 million of devices worldwide, which is likely to be the goal for next year, but not for the lifetime of the device.

Video games for PlayStation 3 that support motion-sensing game controllers allow developers to differentiate themselves, however, since far not all game consoles are equipped with innovative controllers, it is unlikely that game designers will make their titles to solely rely onto motion-sensing devices.

Sony unveiled its long awaited motion sensing game controller at E3 show in early June. Sony’s motion sensing controller features a special light located on top and works in collaboration with Sony’s updated Toy camera. Even though the original EyeToy has been criticized for its limitations, when the new Toy device is used with the new controller, the accuracy of the controls is super-accurate, according to Sony. Pricing of the motion-sensing game controller is unknown.
