motion controller/sensors on game consoles

I am very interested in xbox kinect, playstation move and nintendo wii (or wiimote plus) reviews, especially to see if and how they can be modded..here is an early review http://www.cnet.com.au/xbox-360-kinect-vs-playstation-move-vs-nintendo-wii-remote-plus-339307363.htm?feed=rss
here is a youtube video of using xbox move as a form of 3D scanner http://idav.ucdavis.edu/~okreylos/ResDev/Kinect/index.html
an article on the above at http://hackaday.com/2010/11/15/rendering-a-3d-environment-from-kinect-video/

nb (wiki) From a design standpoint, Ars Technicas review expressed concern that the core feature of Kinect, its lack of controller, would hamper development of games beyond those that have either stationary players, or control the player’s movement automatically; remarking that the similarity of the genres of the launch titles owed to the hardware not being able to “handle much else”, they predicted that Microsoft would eventually need to release a “Move-like” controller in order to overcome this limitation.[76]
