PS3 Motion Controller Slated For March, Dreamcast Titles Inbound

According to a legit-looking leaked document from Sega, Sony is planning on launching their PS3 motion controller this March in Japan with the US release coming sometime before mid-2010. From the document:

Motion Controller Spring 2010 launch (March in JP) No bundle/pricing details yet, should come Sept 1 Plan on selling 4-5MM units WW SCEA agreed to provide a list of Sega IP that would work well with the motion controller, Virtua Tennis was an example Motion Controller support allows easy way to differentiate PS3 SKU Other differentiation opportunities include PSP/PS3 interoperability – think of features that would make users want to buy both PS3 and PSP SKUs.

PS3 and PSP interoperability? I could imagine a bundle with the motion controller and a PSP to replace the Dual Shock 3...if only it had all the necessary buttons.

The other potentially big piece of news here refers to Dreamcast titles coming to PSN (PS2 games are technically mentioned as well). Apparently Sony is courting Sega for their old games.

DC Digital Titles If we provide a list of DC titles SCEA will let us know which ones they're interested in having exclusively. If we give them a long period of exclusivity they'll give us more marketing support.

Note that "long period of exclusivity" is not permanent exclusivity, meaning that a slew of Dreamcast titles may be on their way to other platforms as well. [Objectif Sega via NeoGAF via Kotaku AU]
