The Xbox Gametrak Freedom, long in coming, has finally arrived giving Xbox 350 owners a viable Wii-like experience at last. The Freedom motion controller uses ultrasonic 3D positioning for pin-point accuracy when interacting with Xbox 360
Wireless connected to the gamers display via two mounted sensor bars, up to four Xbox 360 Gametrak Freedom controllers can be used simultaneously. Packed with more accelerometers then you can shake a stick at (pun intended), the controller has no trouble recognising pitch, roll and yaw, distance, orientation, and speed.
The first set of games to make use of the Xbox 360 Gametrak Freedom controller will be available at launch and include Gametraks own title – Squeezeballs. Third-party games are to follow. Set for a Q4 release we can’t tell you the price as yet but there will also be a PS3 version of the Xbox 360 Gametrak Freedom controller pencilled in for 2010.
