New PS3 remote looks very Wii-like

With a design most likely lifted from Nintendo's book, the new 3D motion-sensing device from Blaze bears a striking resemblance to the Wii remote right down to its form factor.

A Wii remote for PlayStation 3? That appears to be exactly what video game accessory maker Blaze had in mind when it conceived of the PS3 Motion Freedom 3D controller.

With a design most likely lifted from Nintendo's book, the new 3D motion-sensing device bears a striking resemblance to the Wii remote right down to its form factor. The key difference is the Motion Freedom 3D's suite of PS3-centric controls, ranging from the PlayStation's signature cross, square, triangle, and circle buttons to the analog stick.

According to Blaze, this hybrid concoction has been ergonomically designed and will give gamers complete control. The only problem is the lack of news on pricing and availability in the company's press release, so there's no telling when you can give it a go.
