CNET got its hands on the Sixense control system, which is essentially a Wii remote with the accuracy of a Bullet Hell aficionado. The remote utillizes a technology called TrueMotion to measure exactly what position the controller is in, allowing for much more realistic on-screen movement.

Developers have had the tools necessary to integrate TrueMotion into their games for over a year now, and come this December, when the Sixense controller ships, a few PC titles will support the tech.

Crysis, Call of Duty 4, and Madden were listed as examples of compatible games, but Sixense says we won't be seeing a console version of its remote until 2010 at the earliest. I must say, I'm liking what was shown in the video demonstration.
