Take a look at this Eye Toy video for the ps3. As mentioned back at E3 2005 it looks as if the new Eye Toy will implement some ideas from the movie Minority Report. Looks very cool but have look for yourself.
Good to see the ps3 cam is doing the same thing the 360 cam is doing. To be able to manipulate things on the TV via the vision cam. Another feature that Microsoft "released" first to market in this next generation. First to implement 1080p as a native resolution and first to have a live marketplace, first to have a cam that has motion sensing abilitites, First to put your face in the game via the cam, First Killer Game in Gears of War for next gen systems, First to many many innovations and features in "this next generation of gaming". Its one thing to talk about what you are going to do...and its another to actually do it. MS has came through time and time again. Worldwide Launch...DONE....1080p gaming and movies....DONE....Online marketplace with HD movies for rent/download....DONE....Its truly amazing when you sit back and think about how far ahead MS is over the competition. P.S. I think its great that Sony is following the leader. Its the ultimate form of flattery. If you can't beat them...Join um.
You are a complete xbox fanboy. Do you realize that Sony was first to have a camera out of all systems? MS copied sony when they released the eye toy for the PS2. so COPYING SONY'S CAMERA.....DONE You really need to learn your history before you go on rants about your favorite company
You really are up Gates A$$ arn't you? Sony had the eye toy way before MS had anything like it. Also I don't see any 1080p games for MS out yet last I heard Gow was 720p not 1080p.
Sony released the cam on the PS2 first which did all of this but to a smaller degree because of the lack of processing power. So stop your fanboy crap posts. As far as ahead, Microsoft has only released some of you list BECAUSE Sony is. They are followers. the only reason they released it first is because the machine is out already. You give Microsoft way to much credit.
MS is the first to release ? really ? I don't see any 1080p game on xbox 360, could you give some examples ? prolly not. On the other hand, PS3 will get a 1080p 60fps game for launch? Yah, RR7. For the camera, yeah lol. First eyetoy anyone ? But still, i've never seen something with the 360 camera that comes close to this video. Crappy face mapping for poker games ? woohoo You're really funny dude ^^ Or maybe, you didn't know about eyetoy, and RR7. Not what i'd except from a "topgamer"
Sega had an interactive camera with the Dreamcast. They also had "triggers" first, that have been copied by both Sony and MS. LONG LIVE SEGA..booyokasha
TopGamer- Don't be stupid. I guess everyone is copying MS by making a video game console because MS is the first video game console in this generation. I guess Sony and Nintendo are copying MS because they're using a controller to affect the content in the videogames themselves.
The Amiga had this in 1988 with the Mandala system that used the Genlock device to pioneer this sort of interactivity. It was the first device of this sort available to consumers. All of these camera toys copied them. nyeah nyeah!
please, next-gen is so close now. Nov. 17th is almost here people. get in line!! The king shall return to claim his throne. Play B3YOND
mama! amen to that bro. PLAYB3YOND is the word.Can`t wait for this baby ps:No need to claim the throne cuz ps2 has it already.Every month it`s doing mad damage in sales lol!
My computer had a camera before Sony ever imagined having one. I was talking about having a camera that does motion sensing and Face Mapping in this NEXT GEN. And I said a console that has 1080p native ouput for games and movies. Microsoft was the first to have 1080p native support. Now its up to the game developers to utilize it. Sony fans are so touchy and jumpy. Calm down and relax...Your wait is almost over. Hopefully you all have your ps3 paid for and guarenteed one at launch like me. ha ha ha ha. If not, take a gander at the amazing Gears of War reviews. WOW. MS has done it again. Stop being fanboys and be gamers. I didn't lie once. I'm sorry if the truth rubs you the wrong way. I'm happy that Sony's next gen console is doing the same things the xbox 360 is already doing. Good news right?
The truth has been spoken...and it sounds like Microsoft.
"Stop being fanboys and be gamers" With comments like yours, you are definitely a fanboy. You say you speak the truth, but you are just like TheMARt, MS butt budies.
1080p was also something that MS criticized for the past year or so before implimenting as a capability for the machine to output in 1080p. Like you said, it's up to the developers to utilize it. So far, none have. PS3 is launching with several. Really everything you mentioned were ideas that Sony was implementing, and then MS criticized them, then later implemented them themselves. Does that make Sony the copycat? Why does everything have to be a system war with you? Yes, MS is copying the Eyetoy, but who really cares? The webcam has been around for years, it's a natural evolution that these things would make their way to video game consoles eventually.
THE KING OF KING IS COMING THATS WHY MICOSHIT IS CALLING 11-17-06 THE EMERGENCE DAY IS NOT FOR GEARS OF WAR IS FOR THE KING OF KING PS3.....................P.S THE PS2 IS OUTSELLING THE DUMB-BOX 360 WORLDWIDE AND IS TRUE
...but it's too bad it was 100% fabricated, with ZERO actual implementation of the camera. Nice ideas as usual Sony....now show us something real. :o
You really think that MS didn't have 1080p in the works? ha ha ha ha. All that you stated...does it change the FACT that MS was first to market in this next gen with vision cam funtionality for motion sensing and face mapping? Does it change the fact that MS is the first console in history to do 1080p native for MOVIES and Games? Nope. Whats the big deal? Why are sony fans so touchy on this topic? The facts remain the same regardless.
The 360 can do native 1080p for games, it just hasn't done it yet because there are no native 1080p 360 games out. All it does right now is upscale games to 1080p, which isn't native. The ps3 will still technically be the first system to do native 1080p. Not really a lie, just a mistake.
What Xbox 360 games currently out output in 1080p native? Any 1080p tv can upscale a 720p image to 1080p. Upscaling means nothing.
The PS3 was running at 1080P at E3. So if you want to get all technical, they were the first to have 1080p on a console. That was when MS was bashing 1080p. As others have stated, they bash something, then implement it themselves. Very fickle. Both side (MS & Sony) should shut up and do what the consumer wants and ignore the other competition.
I know people are not comparing that 1.3 megapixel POS to this eye toy. And in no way can you interact with the camera like in these videos. And im sorry 1080p upscaled and through VGA is not something to brag about. HDMI NBA 07 in TRUE 1080p not upscaled. As far as M$ and its video service, have fun trying to find some place to put it.
You really think the PS3's Eye Toy will do what this video shows? This is just like the PS9 commercial... it's fake.
if you guys think that the eye toy wont be able to do this, that is the highest form of a compliment. Thanks.
i would like to see stuff like that.as for microsoft,let's see: copied the idea for the hard drive. copied the dual analog stick. copied rumble. copied dvd playback. copied the idea for e distribution. copied dvd remote. copied backwards compatibility(hahahahahah!!!) copied 1080p games at 60fps(hahahahahahahah!!!) copied the eyetoy. copied 100 million plus sales(hahahahahaha!!!)
"copied the idea for the hard drive." (What other storage medium you suggest? Consoles are not as powerful as computer; actually they share the same components. Shouldn't you say microsoft also copied cpu, gpu, ram, disk drive, etc. why should the hard drive be any different? Suggesting this is simply stupid. "copied the dual analog stick." (Everyone copied from Nintendo on this) why? Cause it was a good Idea, and good Ideas define the standards. Logical approuch again. "copied rumble." - Technically they own a big pie of the people that invented it. is that copying?, oh yeah... Sony will not have this. "copied dvd playback." from who? No comments on this one. Sad.... "copied the idea for e distribution." - who else is currently doing this? I can be wrong, but you can only copy an existing product; the only console currenly offering e-distribution is from microsoft. "copied dvd remote." too stupid to comment on this one too. "copied backwards compatibility(hahahahahah!!!)& quot; I'm sure you actually believe this. but it's obvious. Have you done an IQ test? If No... dont. "copied 1080p games at 60fps(hahahahahahahah!!!)" ; The 360 is the only and first console to support 1080P. "copied the eyetoy" I think the gameboy had a camara first. and I had a camara for my PC way before the PS2 was launch. Please try harder.... you don't need to be that smart to actually come up with at least one real valid point. Also, you probably heard about copyright and pattents. If Microsoft would to copy anything from Sony; Sony would take them to court. copied 100 million plus sales(hahahahahaha!!!)
Speak on what you know. The 360 cam is able to interact with onscreen objects. Its ok that you have no clue about the 360 and its capabilities...But you show how little you know. And the 360 is the first console to get a next gen console with 1080p native support to the public. You can talk about what you got coming...meanwhile we have it in our hands. You can talk about games coming out for the ps3 that are suppose to be in 1080p. But I'm talking about a console that is already out that is fully capable of 1080p MOVIES and Games. When I bought the 360 last year. I thought I was getting a console that does 720p and plays DVD's. Little did I know that it would do 1080p and have an hd dvd option for 300 less than the HD dvd stand alone. Little did I know that games like Gears of War would look better than a console "PS3" that costs 200 dollars more and had an extra year to tweak it. Amazing to say the least. Thanks Microsoft. P.S. Once again. The vision cam does have motion sensing and already has a game "although it is weak" that lets you manipulate items on the screen as this video for this article shows. Nothing new for us 360 gamers.
A game where you can manipulate stuff ? Ho my, sounds like the eyetoy for PS2, incredible ! I'd like to see a video or something tho, i mean for the 360, because the eyetoy for the PS3 is way more impressive than the first eyetoy.
UPSCALED, not NATIVE.
name one 360 1080p native game?who came out with an interactive camera first and made many games for it?sony? or microsoft? who sold 100 million plus systems TWICE?did microsoft sell 100 million plus systems?name one microsoft 1080p movie that they made? name 1080 p movies sony has made?gears of war sacrifices advanced gameplay for GRAPHICS.4vs4?hahahahahaha!!! AND IT IS NOT EVEN MICROSOFTS.NAME ONE GAME MICROSOFT MADE THAT LOOKS BETTER THAN GEARS?WITH ALL THOSE BILLIONS YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD HAVE MADE REALITY GAMES.
Sony needs to work on their controllers before they mess around with the camera, what are those things on the DualShock?, are they triggers or buttons(click action insted of being anolog sensitive/pressurized). How can you have next-gen gameplay with Duel shocks.
The square, triangle, circle and cross buttons on the DS2 are analog. Not sure about the L and R triggers tho.
Once dev's use them it's a hole new ball game.
I think it wasn't that used for the PS2. First examples that come to my mind are gran turismo 3 and platform games for instance. Well that was for the PS2. Dunno for the sixaxis, but i guess all buttons are analog, would make sense. They even pushed the stick sensitivity from 8 to 10 bits
It can track you and pick up motion and actually follow you around the room. Watches you. If you 360 fanboy's don't know that you need to read up on your tech articles. It looks awesome and it's better than anything 360 can do so far. Warning Error:Power brick, crashed systems, PC port graphics for a year, Waste of money, Loud, ugly, one killer ap gears of war, piece of crap. Dreamcasted.
"fully capable of 1080p MOVIES" yea that's not native, that's upscaled...."Little did I know that games like Gears of War would look better than a console "PS3" that costs 200 dollars more and had an extra year to tweak it. Amazing to say the least. Thanks Microsoft.".....one of the BIGGEST overlooking of xbox fanboys! The XBOX 360 has been out for 1 year longer, hence they are in the 3rd generation of games. Developers know how to code for the system. the PS3's LAUNCH games look just as good if not better than the xbox 360's 3rd gen. HA! You are a moron..
^Lmao you know nothing PS2 sold 100 million units, xbox sold around 20million. Xbox was selling 260,000 thousand units a year after launch and 360 is slling 250,000 as of October. Xbox was selling more than 360 is. Do the maths even a five year old knows that's not good. Dreamcast was unchallenged in the market and we all know what happened to that. 360 has one game GOW that noone is going to know about because it can't be put on kiosks. The ratings to high. The only people that even know it's there are owners of the console or people on the internet. 360 came out early but with nothing new to offer and a year on is still gathering dust in all countries but America. In fact my local GAME store the other day took down the 360 stand and replaced it with a DS one. Haven't you seen the low shelf space in Japan for the xbox 2.5.
You seem a bit misinformed or twisting the truth somewhat... These are undeniable facts: The PS3 was the first console to enable native 1080p resolutions for developers. The PS3 was the first console to showcase native 1080p games. The PS3 will be the first console with native 1080p games readily available to consumers. The PS3 was the first "next-gen" console to showcase EyeToy like features at a consumer event. The PS3 will in all likelyhood be the first "next-gen" console with a "native" fullprice game featuring gesture controls. The PS3 will on the day of its launch be the console with by far the most gesture control games available (through backwards compatibility). The X360 so far has only one game announced or released with gesture controls and that is an XBL Arcade game.
All I can tell you is SHUT UP! All the news turn out to be "mine's better than yours" M$ vs $ONY threads. You are like stupid puppets running on end of strings controlled by these companies who are just in it to make a sh*t load of money. And you think someone actually cares whether some company wins or loses. Let's just read the f*cking news and enjoy?
WHOW! Topgamer got canned in this thread!! lol. Gee, thanks Microsoft.
