PlayStation 4 Eye Detailed

Sony went into great detail behind the PlayStation 4 Eye and Dualshock 4 during their GDC conference, going as far as explaining why the L2/R2 buttons have been curved. (PS4, Tag Invalid)

This is actually pretty interesting. I hate how a video on Hulu will rewind or fast forward when I put down my controller.

"1920×900 resolution on the analog touchpad"

Wait, what? What does this mean? The touch pad will now have a visual display (?).
Karlnag3  +   1050d ago
I think it just means it's pixel accurate up to that resolution.

"Can see the controller, so if you’re playing split-screen and move, your half of the screen will switch sides also"

How cool is that?! Very!

It's those little details I find impressive.

What if your playing 3 player splitscreen and someone else has the big bit at the bottom, do you think you could move and steal it from them? LOL

blending real world fighting for position with virtual world fighting for your life. Now that's what a man calls immersion!

In a game of Warhawk, screen space is king. (and so is the 3rd player)

never cared for the ps eye, maybe things will change?

LMFAO all of a sudden Kinect is cool...just as long as it says PS4 EYE on the box.

I love the hypocrisy on this site.
nevin1  +   1050d ago
I dont get it either.

And no I dont have a 360.

But seriously, it really does seems that people will only be excited for things that the company they favor after dissing others for offering the same gimmicks.

People are very inconsitence.

And the people who do the disagrees will be the 1st ones to complain when they have their PS4(or 720).

Ps gamers liked the camera long before kinect. But for me it's not so much the camera as it is the move controller, It is a much better version of the wiimote. That is one reason i'm glad the wii was such a success, i love the move.
loulou  +   1050d ago
i cant wait to see n4g explode with joy when ps eye games are made.. it's going to be like the second coming.
The_Infected  +   1050d ago
How many Kinect style casual crap games did you see Sony reveal for the camera at their PS4 reveal? Exactly there was none Sony didn't spend 80% of their conference revealing motion control games like MS does with Kinect. It's not like Kinect and people like the features it gives you "with the controller" and like switching split screen depending on where your sitting.

Anyways Sony didn't have Usher come out on stage so it's all good.

It might be similar to kinect but Sony will never depend on kinect like games to push the console.

I want buttons
SlavisH2  +   1050d ago
yep there is a huge bias towards sony here and im a playstation fan lol.
scott182  +   1050d ago
Well it is playstation article....
JasonKCK  +   1050d ago
i know i will get a lot of hate 4 this but it really is just kinect. get ready for a lot of dance and workout games.
BitbyDeath  +   1050d ago
No, Kinect still isn't cool.
Kinect 2 though, that might be.
NeXXXuS  +   1050d ago
Kinect was never cool. It was a gimmick that microsoft made just because everyone else was doing it. they didn't pull it off that well either.
let me refresh your memory...

also, kinect support for the next xbox system may not be optional which is a bad move on their part.

I couldn't careless about either but what you say is true.

They are & have been basically the same thing with a different name on it.
zebramocha  +   1050d ago
@lvl no,there was a kinect like camera for the ps2/ps3 that had games,excluding the trolls,kinect did more harm for the core xbox gamer than good,it took away from core games being made by Ms first party studios,it didn't work the way it was unveiled to the masses and didn't enhance gameplay much,wether you like the move or not it was better for a variety of games than kinect will ever be.
GravelerMagnitude9  +   1050d ago
Ps4 eye is not Kinect. Ps4 eye doesn't require you to stand up while using and it tracks the controller positioning , not jumping and punches and kicks with body parts. If ps4 eye is used with the move controller, it would be more precise than a Kinect. Also, if you could please stop bashing next gen tech, us gamers over here could enjoy gaming as a whole, but you have to bring Xbox to a Playstation article comment section.

PS4 will be great¡

"1920×900 resolution on the analog touchpad"
how is that? is there a screen on the DS4?

"Can see the controller, so if you’re playing split-screen and move, your half of the screen will switch sides also"
this feature is pretty sick!
Jaqen_Hghar  +   1050d ago
I think it effects the precision of the touch
cyclindk  +   1050d ago
"Will come with an exclusive SCE Connector, so it can’t be plugged into a USB port on your computer to use as a webcam"

So you will just need an adapter is all

Interesting:

The AR will use the PS4's camera, the PlayStation 4 Eye, in combination with the new DualShock controller, which will combine with facial recognition to let the PS4 identify each player based not only on their controller, but their face.

Midway through the talk, Norden showed a demo video of the augmented reality stuff in action. First, we saw a guy in a living room who pulled out a virtually projected menu--we were seeing what he'd see, a reflection of himself on the screen, with the augmented reality graphics projected around him. It then cut to him sitting with a friend, pulling up a digital Pong field, which displayed superimposed over them and their controllers. They then used their controllers to move the pong paddles.

The second demo was cooler, and had the guy "zooming in" to his controller with the touch-pad, where the screen showed an army of little robot dudes living inside it. This is similar to an old Ubisoft mini-game that involved little Rabbids creatures seeming to live inside the Wii Remote.

The demo also felt a little like those little aliens in Toy Story were living within his controller. Watching them on the screen, he'd press buttons on the controller and see them react as the massive structure above them (which was actually his controller) lit up and changed. When he shook the controller, they all freaked out, and when he covered the touch-pad with his hand, their light source went away. Then, he "flicked" the touchpad and we cut back to a view of him in the room, tossing the robots out of his controller and into the room, pushing them around with his hand before eventually vacuuming them back up, also using the controller.

I wish they released the (video) presentation. Would be cool to watch.
iXenon  +   1050d ago
yeah, they really should have done a livestream
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1050d ago
Here's the important part...

It's always on when you play.
BitbyDeath  +   1050d ago
Is not mentioned anywhere at all in the article.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1050d ago
But it's true. And it's required for use with the controller, which was hinted at during the ps4 reveal.

Now let me clarify when I say "always on" I mean only when you are playing games.

But I do think its weird that both 720 and PS4 have a camera that is always on during play.

All I can say is that I love big brother and I have always loved big brother and we have always been at war with Oceania. ;)

No that is incorrect.
Their is an option for devs to use the camera with the controller but it is up for them to code for it.
r21  +   1050d ago
Heres the really important part you forgot to mention, you can plug in and take out the camera ;D
kingPoS  +   1050d ago
I think the main draw of the ps4 eye, is that it integrates well with controllers, and if needed.. can operate by itself.
