Although Sony confirmed the device – set to rival Microsoft’s Project Natal for the Xbox 360 – back in June, decent images of the controller itself have been notoriously hard to come by.

The latest images, captured during a Sony press conference at the ongoing Tokyo Games Show, reveal a sculpted black controller with light-up ball on the end.

The ball, it has already been confirmed, changes colour during gameplay.

As for Motion Control’s features, Sony Computer Entertainment’s boss - Kaz Hirai – hinted during the presentation that the controller will support image recognition, depth detection, and gyros, according to a report by gaming website Joystiq.

Hirai also reportedly claimed that Motion Control will meet the “stringent” requirements of hardcore gamers.
