Since Sony reported on Monday that the PS3's SIXAXIS controller had won a Technology and Engineering Emmy Award, the Emmy governing body, NATAS, has issued a statement to confirm that this claim is inaccurate, and the award was in fact given to the Dual Shock controller.
When blogger, Séamus Byrne, contacted NATAS after his disbelief that Nintendo hadn't taken the award for innovations of the Wii Remote, he received a reply confirming: "Sony did not win for their PS3 controller, they won for their Dual Shock Analog controller."
The statement confirms: "The award is from the Video Game Technology Group. It was nominated by our internal group and considered along with the Nintendo D-Pad both of which were considered Emmy worthy for the development of the generation of controllers that followed the classic joysticks."
An innocent mistake on Sony's part, or intentionally misleading information? Sony was not available for comment at the time of writing.
