Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer that PlayStation 3 owners will need just one of the handheld wands to play games with motion controlling, but that having a second one will enhance the gameplay experience.
"The ultimate goal or wish for us is if you have two controllers, like we demoed at E3, we can do something really amazing. It's like putting your arms into the TV, like a gaming space, and you have total control of the 3D space in front of you," Yoshida told Eurogamer in an interview published today.
"But because of cost-of-goods and, you know, people have to have the PlayStation Eye camera as well, we are approaching the launch by making sure that all games that we create can be played with one controller and the camera. We will also introduce options for if you happen to have more than one controller available. Experiences will be enhanced if you purchase a second."
