Clearing Up E3

Already, the mumblevine is starting to get things wrong from E3. Let's try to set a few things straight.

The PS3 Controller Is Not The Wii-mote
As Brin has also pointed out, the PS3 controller may have tilt-sensitivity ... but that's not the same thing as the Wii's ability to determine location in 3D space. Very, very different in fact. And it's kinda funny to read all of the hooplah about how "Sony didn't steal the gyro from Nintendo, but from Microsoft/Logitech" when that's really missing the point completely. They're different controllers completely.

Grand Theft Auto IV is not 360 exclusive
Rockstar has already announced the title will be on both the 360 and the PS3. The "exclusive" portion of their contract with Microsoft is only for specific episodic content on the 360. Or maybe they'll pull a Bethesda and you can pay $5 for cool rims. Who knows?

I'm sure there will be more later.

I had to give it up a while ago, when I refused to agree that the PSP was a miserable failure, sales-wise, the day it launched.

I'm a bitch.
