AFAICT it's just a glorified console controller marketed to the PC crowd, nothing special.

(Disclaimer: I'm biased, I hate Razer w/ a passion.)

Motion-sensing wouldn't work well for a 6DoF controller.

A good 6DoF control scheme needs either precision (e.g. mouse) or continuous movement (e.g. stick). Motion-sensing tech by its nature is restrictive, because you can only move so far in any given direction.
