Sony has unveiled the PS3’s Six-Axis Bluetooth motion sensing controller. After some hands-on, wires-off time with WarHawk, it looks like this tech just might go the way of the Rumble Pack.

Now that the old Batarang controller has gleefully been blipped back to the dark Photoshop void from whence it came, the new Nullshock PS3 pad handles as naturally as a paint brush.

However, it does take some decently-sized strokes to match your aircraft to your desire.

Treading the laser-thin line between digital and analog, the Six-Axis sensor works in defined portions; so adjusting your aircraft’s pitch when turning tight corridors will, at first, visually jump like a racing game tapped on a D-pad.
