Ned commented on Sony Patents Wii Remote Style Device:

That's nothing like the Wii's system, in fact it's completely inferior to the Wii.

The Wii's sensor bar isn't a sensing unit, it's a pair of lights which allow the remote to triangulate it's position. The name sensor bar is a misnomer, the remote does all the sensing. Hence you can use candles instead of the sensor bar.

The PS3 system sounds really dodgey. Since it requires multiple sensors the target area of light emited from the PS3's remote will be pretty big. This also implies that any reflective objects nearby could have a nasty effect on the accuracy.
