VG247: According to a GamesIndustry story, developers are already in possession of the motion-sensing PlayStation pad - unofficially named "The World's Worst Kept Secret" - and apparently it's made of pieces which break apart.
Interesting, I wonder if Guerrilla or Insomniac uses it in there upcoming game?
I wonder whats games will use this motion pad
after playing mgs4 and now reading this sony aint messing they are really are taking no prisoners
that Sony was working on a "transforming" controller and that Resistance 2 would use it. Good idea but they really should of released it earlier and eliminated the Dual Shock 3 altogether. Now having 3 controllers on the market at %$50+ a pop is bound to cause confusion and some backlash from consumers.
i am sure that i have seen a 'break apart' motion sensing controller for the PS2.. it was from a peripheral developer.. i just can't remember which ... it was like, the DS2, but then whenever you needed, you could break it apart in the middle, and use it e.g. for climbing a ladder.. or playing tennis with only one side.. it was quite a cool concept.. but i just can't find it any more, i think i saw it on the website of in2games.. but i can't find it there any more either.. greeetzz
With all due respect, I disagree with the buddy above me. Edit, ops my post came too late, i mean my friend on comment 1.3 I think on the PS3, there are room to use more than one controller set. It depends on how they design the motion controller, because it may not have all the buttons you think it may have (You will be surprised when you find out). So some games, especially classic PS1 and PSN games still work the best with the normal DS3, this is also the reason nintendo has their classic controller as well. Much like other peripheral, i think it is realistic for Sony to release this controller with a set of casual games in a new SKU (probably also include one DS3) and display in malls like Nintendo did. So ppl walking by can pick up and play and buy it. Future games that makes use of this controller can be a packaged deal as well much like Eye of Judgment for camera and Head set for Warhawk. Then of course they will also be sold separately
I KNEW IT!!! in2games Fusion demonstration: http://dl.uksites.futureus.... Computer and Video Games paid a visit: http://www.computerandvideo... it was in fact from in2games!!
If they make a star wars lightsaber game with 1 to 1 motion control for light saber battles the world will beat a path to their door. FPS first person sword fighting ftw.
Actually, I have thought this and that secret game comes together.
So is this the transforming controller thats was talked about? Just hope it's not a flop. Could see some interesting games that will take advantage of this peripheral.
Great! A shovelware magnet that snaps into two shovelware magnets. Can we leave the Wii-mote to Nintendo please? On most games it doesn't actually make a significant improvement to game play.
Can you tell me what color the controller is?
the one I'm talking about or Sony's controller?
Sony's controller,since it's "shovelware",you must have used it and thus seen it to make such a conclusion,correct?
"Sony's controller,since it's "shovelware",you must have used it and thus seen it to make such a conclusion,correct? " Erm.... Not correct. May I refer you to my previous post. A shovelware magnet, not shovelware. So this product will attract no shovelware at all?
Ahh,I see I see.But what if I told you Uncharted 2 was going to be using this new controller?
Well... maybe then I'll change my mind. :-) Seriously though. I like the IR pointer in the Wii-mote. Pointing is good. The use of the IR within the bounding box of FPS Metroid and MoH2 actually works well too. But accelerometer motion controls on the other hand. I haven't seen them used well... ...ever. If any Nintendo bods know differently, I'm happy for them to prove me wrong. I just haven't seen it myself. To me the Wii mote isn't very good motion control - it's swipe then watch the move that it is translated to on screen. See swiping the tennis racquet in Wii Sports. Sword in red steel and Zelda Lightsaber in Force Unleashed. It just isn't that good. But then again perhaps Sony will have improved accelerometer technology, we will see. (Maybe the Wii accelerometers are backward like the hardware, so maybe Sony accelerometers will be current gen... ;-) Just kidding - don't k1ll me fanboys.
I like motion sensing the way it already is, in the Dual Shock 3. If it's better than the Wii-mote though...
no its not its only have six axis(the name of the controller)to move its not accurate it cannot detect if you move forward or backward it does not detect if it rotate you cant really use it in a shooter to aim LIKE the wii mote is doing
Who ever knew that Sony was going to mimic Nintendo's controller? *Gasps* (sarcasm) It seems all fine and dandy but I didn't read anything about the controller having an IR Pointer which is a very useful function of the Wiimote.
like sixaxis which is kind of a let down really why dd they added motion sensing
if this is successful, wii will die!
theres a little thing called PRICE POINT and NINTENDO first party software which is always awesome.
The wii is already too succesful to fail in any major way, at least as far as the casual market is concerned. I think this and the conroller from MS(if it is real) is needed just to break the monopoly nitendo has on motion sensing games such as wii sports. I would hope with the power that the ps3/360 has that devs could come up with really impresive motion controlled games whilst highlighing how under powered the wii really is in this day and age.
Gamers..dont laugh about this post okey? but i was right when i in my previous statements here said that sony would produce a "pepperspray"..hehe. .and i was right wasn't i?:) hehe But now seriously, i dont think its such a bad idea. cuz i mean with wii u have only one option, and that is to play these games with garbage graphics. But with this concept from sony u can choose either to play games that are casual-oriented or the traditional type of games. They give the consumers options. And with blue-ray and all the state of the art technology that is integrated into the ps3, i think its a better choice than this peace of garbage called wii! now, i will be looking forward to hearing from u guys. Dont make some statements based on preconceptions okey? May god bless america and its peace loving people:)
so you dont want to buy the wii just something that look like wii like a copycate not something original is that it?
I can't help but wonder though. Will the developers who develop the same games for Wii/Ps3(/and apparently 360 but there's not much more than loose rumors about the "Newton") bother making the graphics Ps3 quality, or will they just keep the quality the same? Sony is probably doing this to capitalize on casual games which are fun because they are quick enjoyable experiences, not necessarily because they are graphically awesome. I pray for Zack and Wiki on my Ps3, as it is one of the few reasons i am jealous of Wii owners.
Will save me getting a Wii (was planning to get one end of the year)
pieces that break apart?
"made of pieces which break apart." Can you create something new with the pieces? The device with 10 different uses.. lol Or perhaps join them together to make some Sony mech warrior figurine. '^In some ways similar to the Clank figurine.'
Please for the love of god don't be true! Sony, work on something that means something. Games! Motion sensor crap is a casual work and that's it. why would Sony stoop to these appauling levels? The face of gaming will be dead when all 3 of these idiots have their motion sensor garbage out the door. All I can say.
i agree. thats why i dont like the wii, but maybe sony will do it right. it sounds different and somewhat innovative already,
Welcome to E3 2008, this year should be exciting
If I remember correctly this technology has already been patented by another company. Meaning sony bought a license or the company if true
