Sony Motion Controller update features pinatas, wizardry, hairstyling


The PS3 Slim wasn't the only point of interest from Sony's GamesCom 2009 press conference -- attendees also got a look at some of the capabilities of the tentatively named (we hope) PlayStation Motion Controller which was revealed at E3 earlier this year. The device's developers created a neat little reel showing off a few of the controller's applications -- GameTrailers got its hands on the video, which is posted after the jump.

It looks like skeleton bashing and name-signing aren't the only things the peripheral can do -- the new video shows a few other uses, including piñata smashing, magic casting, light shining and, yes, hairstyling. Does this mean we're one step closer to finally receiving a video game adaptation of Queen Latifah's magnum opus, Beauty Shop? God, we hope so.
