Next-gen PS4 Eye rumored to sport dual 720p cameras, compete with Kinect

We’re only a few days away from what will hopefully be a major console announcement from Sony. The PS4 is right around the corner, and rumors have been circulating about what gameplay hook it will offer.

Im looking forward to it.

GribbleGrunger1262d ago

If it's for video chat or something simple then I don't mind, but if it's forced into games, forget it.

StrongMan1262d ago

Don't worry. Sony will never abandon the hardcore like their competition. They barely supported the Move while MS put 100% focus on the casuals with Kinect.

testerg351262d ago

Strongman, that's comforting that Sony barely supported Move.

Skips1262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

"They barely supported the Move"

My guess is they'll support it more, but it DEFINITELY won't be a focus. Like more integration similar to that of Killzone 3, Socom 4, Resistance 3 etc.

As long as the Eye isn't REQUIRED for the PS4 to function like rumors of the Nextbox and Kinect. lol

GribbleGrunger1261d ago

I don't care if they support the MOVE more heavily as long as most of the time it's optional. I can understand Sony making games for MOVE only. I don't buy them and will probably never buy them, but it's obvious there are people out there that do like them and I'm not selfish enough to think they should just cater for my tastes. BUT, if they force me to sign in using the camera and force me to use it in EVERY damn game, I'll be seriously pizzed off.

Dont look into black hole @ N4G! Or you will have 7 days left :D lmao

On topic, 2 cameras seems to be better choice than one! Sony is showing its intelligence as always!

ALLWRONG1261d ago

StrongMan Sony has done a great job with all those core games in 2011 and 2012. Lets see there was... LBP karting, Battle Royal and Wonderbook.

Sony is just so core

MrBeatdown1261d ago

@ALLWRONG

You continue to live up to your name.

2011 and 2012? Seems you forgot a few...

Infamous 2
Killzone 3
LittleBigPlanet 2
MotorStorm Apocalypse
Resistance 3
Socom 4
Uncharted 3
Twisted Metal
Starhawk

I have no problem with this sony needs to make more casual games to compete. I doubt they will forget the core gamers. You would think they would give up on core gamers during a financial crysis but ps3 still came back to outsell xbox even without focusing on the the casual market.

Isn't a new killzone coming plus the vita version? Plus god of war , the last of us and beyond? yeah we good.

I expect ps4 to be the next best sony console next to ps2.. They made a lot of mistakes and will be going hard next gen.

back to ni no kuni.

greenpowerz1262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

When you say PS3 outsold the 360 I assume you're talking about the IDK report that quessed/came up with those numbers with no proof and or real source or info(4 hits) on how they tracked those numbers and are the only data company that came to that same conclusion.

2nd place best seller in NA this holiday didn't even sell half of what the first place seller did. Sales from the rest of the world are not going to make up those impossible numbers even if the 360 wasn't selling one console overseas LOL.

I'd probably would wait for Sony to announce the numbers. Sony would have been releasing statements left and right trying to garner more PS3 support with developers if that were true. Sony has announced good numbers after they started hiding them you know.

The number one seller sold almost 6 million consoles this holiday I doubt Sony overcame a 3 million console gap and also sold 6 million consoles in not even 2 months.

Tapioca Cold1262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

Compete with who? What are you talking about and why do you care? "the casuals"? Is that who?

They are not important to gaming/the industry/ or gamers.

the 'casuals' will never be needed to sell a console.

We the gamers are needed. Our hardcore gaming needs and passion for games.

"The Xbox started out as a gaming machine, but now the majority of the 76 million users worldwide spend more time viewing entertainment than playing games, said Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of Interactive Entertainment at Microsoft."

The casuals have killed that console. The gamers will buy ps4's next gen. The were abandoned.

Lvl_up_gamer1261d ago

Still using 3rd party estimated numbers? How sad.

Sony fanboys will cling to anything no matter how pathetic it is so long as it supports Sony.

How pathetic.

cannon88001261d ago

I'm surprised nobody mentioned 3d recording. If there are going to be two cameras then 3d recording should not be a problem. Since sony released and advertised the crap out of 3d televisions, it would be a no brainer to add this as an option. This might even help them with sales. Since 3d tv's cheaper now.

USEYOURFIST1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Good point that didnt even cross my mind, good thinking! I do hope there is some surprise stuff like this, that's not been rumored, announced on the 20th

AngelicIceDiamond1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

So MS and PlayStation fanboys have something to worry about.

Next gen motion sensing technology was already rumored for the PS4 last year. The rumor just needed to resurface. Its clear Sony wants to get into "Kinect like games" because MS proved the market is ready for that kind of thing. 10m+ Move sold and 24m+ Kinect Sold. The market is clearly ready for this kind of alternative gaming.

I don't personally care as long Sony and MS cater to both the hardcore and casual market. I'm hardcore through and through I don't wanna see "Eye" or Kinect 2.0" in my hardcore games. Share the market so both can be happy

As I said, both fanboys do have something to worry about I'm afraid.

As long as it's worked on more after the PS4 launches and NOT sold WITH the PS4 so we have to pay more for our new console then I'm fine with it. They should focus all their attention of the PS4 it's self and the quality control on it.

However you know what's going to happen next gen :|

"Oh look at that Sony are copying MS and are doiung their own version of Kinect"

Despite the fact Kinect is basically an improved Eyetoy which Sony did first years ago

JoGam1262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

Same is going to happen with MS Let them announce a Bluray drive. Same will happen.

PopRocks3591262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

Oy. I truly hope that won't be the selling point of the console. I'm not really an EyeToy or Kinect fan to begin with. If it's an optional device that doesn't jack up the price of the initial console, I'll be happy.

One of the things I hated about Kinect was Microsoft's incessant focus on it. It was underdeveloped technology to begin with that didn't provide many fun game experiences (except for the Gunstringer. I liked that one) and only seemed to be a fun little device for hackers and modders. From a consumer standpoint I think devices like these should be optional.

And inb4 someone says Sony's copying Microsoft. PS2 era - EyeToy. Bam.

EDIT: Just wanted to make the point of saying not to get me wrong, more than likely I'm getting a PS4 regardless at some point. I'm just saying I would not enjoy paying more for a souped up EyeToy since none of those sorts of devices ever really enticed me.

Cocozero1262d ago

If you can't beat them join them...

whoyouwit041262d ago

You know it would be so funny that why Sony fan boys stay dogging the kinect that if Sony starts focusing on making all there games focus on the PS eye next gen, we know for a fact that Sony are focusing on new controls why Microsoft is keeping basically the same controller.

zebramocha1262d ago

That would be funny except that Sony had the eye toy,ps eye and ps move,that didn't stop them from coming out with new ips.
