IN2Games, developers of multiplatform wireless motion-sensing technology, have announced a holiday lineup of six new PlayStation 2 games, each with its own unique Wii-mote like wireless motion sensing peripheral for games like golf, tennis, bowling and pool. IN2Games' wireless motion-sensing controller "Freedom" (previously known as "Fusion") for next-gen consoles is still in development, with IN2Games promising more details on its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release soon. For now, though, the company has announced a new lineup of six motion-controlled PlayStation 2 games, which it plans to fully unveil at the upcoming Leipzig Gaming Convention. Each game in the product line retails at £29.99 (about $59.50 USD) with its own PS2-compatible wireless controller, with IN2Games plans to make available in the UK by the Christmas season. Its lineup includes REALPLAY Tennis, which comes with a wireless tennis racket, REALPLAY Pool with comes with its own cue, REALPLAY Golf packaged with a wireless club, and REALPLAY Racing with a steering wheel. The lineup will also see REALPLAY Bowling, packaged with a wireless bowling ball, and REALPLAY Puzzlesphere, a rolling-ball party game that comes with a hand-held manipulable sphere. Said IN2Games CEO Elliott Myers, "The REALPLAY range of games is aimed squarely at those PlayStation 2 owners who want to play wireless motion-sensing games without needing to splash out on a new console. Each peripheral is as accurate as any video gaming technology out there at the moment, but on an entirely new format."
