Rumor – PS3 Wiimote tested?

Both Microsoft and Sony have had rumored Wiimote lookalikes in development for quite some time. Although not nearly identical, the sixaxis PS3 controller is the closest thing to the Wii remote. Sony may be pushing its motion control further, as a new rumor has surfaced. Allegedly, a number of PS3 owners were taken to an undisclosed location in California, in which the participants were able to try out a new PS3 controller (which is very close to that of the Wiimote.) At the event, games like tennis and paintball were up for testing, in addition to a modified version of Quake on someone’s laptop. However, the PS3 controller is far from complete, as one downside it was its usage of a tripod and many issues need to be hammered out.
