Sony is thinking about translating our feelings to the game experience.
I do not see the point in this because developers will have to make their games more stress orientated to work which I can see not happening at all as it requires more thought and talent to pull off. This will only work for really talented developers
This is the kind of stuff Valve has been spending time with. I think it could really move games forward if as you say the right developers make use of it. Having games respond to your own emotions instead of what the devs think you might be thinking could open up a whole new way that games play.
Sony will more than likely lead the way with their own games using it, in hopes that it will be successful and popular, if it is, then developers will do anything. Truth is devs/publishers will do whatever it takes to sell games. Developers complained the PS2 was difficult to develop for. Then the other consoles dropped out of the race and sony was the only one standing. Did developers complain or quit their jobs? Nope, what they did was start making more playstation games. Everyone laughed at the wii, while one can argue that third party wii games kind of sucked, they sure as hell did try though, to sell games to those wii owners. Why do you think ms pays people to make kinect games and add kinect features? Because if it becomes a hit, more devs will want to do kinect games without ms having to pay/beg devs/publishers to do it. There have been pressure sensitive buttons on the PS2. Think of it this way. I hate click to run on CoD. I prefer the old ps2 way things were with pressure sensitive sticks, push lightly and you walk, push harder and you run.
I think it could be a good tool to enhance the ambience in the game (sounds, music, colour effects...) but that it also could affect the experience in a bad way if they develop a game around this technology (something that Sony may demand to some studio).
Sometimes I worry that the rumors were made to match up with these well-known patents...
This would be so cool. Imagine this for metal gear... or any stealth game that requires you to stay calm.
Ha I can see that coming into play with the old Sniper Wolf fight. Your own emotions would affect snakes breathing and scope movement.
Not to troll or whatever, But I'm sure Sony fans will praise this but bashed this: http://sickr.files.wordpres...
It's not the same thing.
