Actually this seems to be more like a complementary "nunchuck" for the PS3 Wand, because as it stand right now it's missing a directional joystick as I stated in this thread: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/playstation-3-news/videos-playstation-3-motion-controller-resident-evil-5-littlebigplanet-108067.html#post272624.

I actually inserted the aforementioned joystick in the actual wand design but it seems Sony does not like that ideea! Probably the button clutter is too much for some people... (It's pretty straightforward that they aim for the casual market with these controllers so it actually makes sense!).

I uploaded the picture again... just for laughs (it's based on the boomerang prototype controller)!
