Nice, but why don't you use a PS Move / PS Eye for sword and gun tracking ? Wireless, off-the-shelf, cheap and confirmed to be usable by Sony.

Thanks. I hadn't considered using the Move, but I think I may add it as another option for controlling the game. For two controllers and a camera it doesn't look like it'll be less expensive than a Hydra. I'm hoping that Dante's Hammerhead controller (see the video linked in my video's description) will end up being cheaper and better than any of them.

A PS Eye with two PS Move can currently be found new for 2 x $26.95 + $14.45 = $68.35 on Amazon with free shipping. That's cheaper than the Razer Hydra which is not available anymore and can only be found used for no less than $230 on Amazon and $449.99 new at Sixense.

I'd say more Rift owners have Hydras at the moment than Move controllers. I know I do.

Yes, I think a lot more Rift owners also own Hydras rather than Move controllers (which I almost never see or hear about).
