Introducing the Emmy award winning.....

Sixaxis? o.O While the PS3 controller loses its rumble feature, it can now brag that it picked up an Emmy. Now you're probably thinking hey, how come the Wii didn't pick up this award given the fact that the Wiimote has been built from the beginning to utilize motion and such? After looking into it a bit more, Sony has hardware employees who also happen to be members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, so I'm guessing that Nintendo has none.

In similar news, it looks like Microsoft also has members in the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences as X-box live also has won an Emmy.

Update: It looks like there was a mixup as Sony actually got the award for the Dual Shock. Also, it looks like Nintendo didn't get snubbed after all as they're listed here in the Emmy list as a winner for "Peripheral Development and Technological Impact of Video Game Controllers".
