Video Chat has been confirmed and possibly the new eye toy will be available at launch.
If Sony/insomniac has figured out a way to have video chat (even with only one other person) during a 40 person death match than they have one upped xbox live. I doubt this is the case, it's probably just postgame/pregame video chat.
Eh Picture-in-Picture could be possible. That would be fun hahahaha.
I doubt that is the case though. =(
It's possible with the 360 Vision cam as well, but hasn't been implemented yet. Expect some announcements soon from MS on that front. ;)
It's possible for the 360, but resistance will be the first game to implement it. Of course, that is if it actually does it.
I'll only get it if it runs while a game plays too though.
mmm... I am very interested to see how they managed to allow 40 players, video chat, voice chat and yet have no lag. I can't wait to see how this play out.
but optical internet providers are coming soon so it dont matter, the future is bright people!
is not something that will be used by the masses, this gen anyway. Hell, standard broadband is only just now becoming cheap enough to be considered moderately mainstream. Optical, like HDMI, 1080p, and HD-DVD/Blu-Ray, is something better suited for NEXT next-gen gaming.
want to see how you can have 40 PIP on-screen and still be able to see what the hell's going on!
Sweet!Can't wait!! ;)
well, i ain't here to debate the ramifications of whats possible or impossible. if Sony and Insomniac feel confident that they can do it then i say kudos, even though i don't game online enough for it to be that much of a useful feature for me.
of the new eye toy. I remeber having an xbox and I that little device made me want the PS2 sooooo bad. It was so innovative. I can't wait to see what this eye toy can do!! I can't wait to see how this video chat thing works though. Hope it dosen't let anyone down.
coming from sony. i wonder how long it will last, release the dam console!!!
why would want video chat in a game (unless in the lobby or something). i don't get it. the 360 camera already does video chat. just like normal voice it is simply a channel in the side menu. i don't know how that works when you are playing a game but cross game chats with friends works AWSOME. unless it is a poker game (which the 360 already has a game out that has video in the game) i don't see why you would want to see video of someone while playing?
...so you can see the look on their face, when you cap 'em in the back of the skull. ;)
the vision camera has a built in video processor, so it can process its own data. That way, it causes little or no lag/strain to the console or your connection. So Video in a big game is certainly possible, assuming the eyetoy does the same thing.
I don't really see the point. I can hardly look at the cross-com on GRAW as is without getting shot, I don't see why I would want to be looking at the other players during a firefight.
Imagine if you could have your face dropped into an interface, similar to DOOM (pic link below), to represent your character. And the video chat during online games, would be most used for 1-on-1 sessions with buddies. That's what I'm wanting to do.
I don't really look at it at all. Sometimes I'll get freaked out cause i'll see something move out of the corner of my eye, but it's only the com. Plus, I don't like the way the com takes up a portion of the screen, it interfers with the whole experience sometimes.
could work for 2 deaf teammates doing fps missions online
Interesting. I imagine you mean by signing, right? But wouldn't that be kind of awkward to take your hands off the controller in the middle of the game? Great idea, though.
since sony DOESNT have a dedicated online service like live then its up to the developer to supply the service(voice an video chat).I honestly think that sony's online service will actually be the sony online store they been trying to get going, sorta like the iTunes store where they call sell all of the content(music, games).since its all up to the developer, they decide if they want the features. you may be able to play online for free, but maybe without voice chat or video chat.thats why sony doesnt even offer a headset out of the box because its not up to them(sony)if voice chat is included in the game!!so the more I think about it, sony's service very well maybe free, but to what extent is yet to be seen!!
i probably won't use it, but cool all the same
If this is true (I don't really take Kaz at face value anymore then than I'm really impressed. Regardless of what one thinks about the game, to have video chat up and running at launch with what has always seemed like a "last minute" network system is quite impressive.
Who cares, M$ can do this better...
still not worth $600 bucks...
Sony's online will suck...
RFOM sucks anyway....
Sony's going down...
waah, waah, waah...
Now take your pick. Am I..
