PS3 controller vs. Wiimote (The Original)

IGN has a nice comparison on the differences (and superiority of the Wiimote) of the PS3 motion control versus the Wiimote. From the article: “Is this technology the same?
No. In fact, the best way to imagine it is to relate the Sony PS3 controller to the left-hand Wii controller; dubbed nunchuck. In short, you would not be able to play a game like Metroid Prime in the same way using the PS3 controller.”
