So it seems that the Wii and PS3 won't be hogging all the motion-sensitive gaming fun for too much longer: the first motion-tracking controller for the Xbox 360 has just been unveiled at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The Gametrak Freedom looks like a cross between the regular Xbox 360 control pad and a Wii Remote. Judging from the picture it's wireless too, and apparently will be supplied with a base station/stand that connects to your console via USB.

The system used can reportedly track up to four controllers at once, and each controller will be packaged with a game called Squeezeballs, which has  been specially designed to show off the technology. We still don't know if the controller will be compatible with existing 360 titles, and if so, which ones - but with the Gametrak launching this autumn we expect to hear more about it in the near future.
