Yesterday at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's London Studios confirmed that they are working on a first-person motion-tracking sword game that will be released by Christmas 2008.
i'm surprised this is ps2 and not ps3
I expect we'll see this kind of thing for the PS3 as well, but the PS2 is in a much better position to directly compete with Wii and the PS2 is still more profitable for Sony. By the time PS2 stops being a major profit center for Sony the PS3 should be firing on all cylinders - sounds like a good strategy to me.
Once PS3 gets 1:1 i'm selling the Wii.
Damn, I was hoping to sell you mine! ;) The likes of Red Steel was one of my primary motivators for picking up my Wii at launch...and we all know how THAT turned out. :(
U could own a 129$ motion PS2 instead of buying a 250$ Wii.
i want that on PS3 that is what nintendo should be doing!If they could make some very fun games that have a decent story and use the wiimote well i would buy more games and use it not only when friends are round.
Excellent, Sony aren't even close to fully utilizing the PS3 camera. This is a great start. I know a lot of people out there find it difficult to get their heads around the console controllers with all their buttons. This is a easy, fun and interactive way to get into gaming.
I think the logic on a PS2 rather than PS3 release, is that PS2 market penetration is still much, much better than PS3's. Plus, with it's cartoony graphics, a game like this wouldn't really benefit from a 'next-gen' upgrade.
One solution would be to copy the techniques of motion capture, which is to have indicative markers/dots on the peripheral itself. Making a foam sword or ____ obviously doesn't cost too much, so there's a lot of potential when they move over to the PS3 (publicly).
Totally never expected that! Nice to hear some little movements of technology going on at SCEE Question is; 'for PS3, or not for PS3?'
This is for the PS2, although Id like to see these ideas grow into the PS3's domain.
u could brobably play it on ps3.
From what we've lost, two PS3 exclusive, this is a joke. I promise you this isn't what this article cracks it up to be.
IT could be a trial run.. Maybe use it on Ps2 first see how it fairs.. then make the changes nessesary to bring it to PS3..
will be able to play it. Most def my 60 giger.
The 40GB or their new 80GB bundle they will be selling moving forward which means....they will need to redo the game for the PS3 if they are going to bring it specifically to the PS3. You can't segment your base that way, would make absolutely no sense.
maybe that ps3 rumoured controller might be more tangible after all: http://cruizd.blogspot.com/... i know these products are ps2, but i think they're test runs for ps3 versions.
not interested........ move along folks, nothing to see here.
Wow Sony, a Sword fighting game. How...original! PFFFFT! Too bad Nintendo already has their 1:1 system ready in Wii Sports 2. Once again, Sony can't keep up.
awwwwwwww somebody just jealous because PS3 and PS2 get 1:1 as well. Do we need to care who got it first? Not me, I'm fine as long as I get it.
I wonder how many times you said you wanted nothing to do with it until Sony said it was bringing it out?
maybe this is the first phase of their ps2 overtaking the wii plan? seems like it would attract casual buyers pretty well.
what do you mean overtaking, its already a long way in front it doesn`t need to over take the wii
I can see why Nintendo are pushing Wii motion plus,the basic motion sensing of the Wiimote can be done on the Ps2
By jew-Mas, you say?
I remember there was a story about this months ago.
Sony is once again going with their strength! "If you can't beat em, copy em!"
@Zerodin 'Lips' and 'You're in the Movies', 'Avatars'? Seems that way both sides of the spectrum. Also people, for some innovation eyetoy/PSeye game look up 'Eyedentity' on youtube...that game was going somewhere, might well still be.
owned again zerodin?
i don't know why zerodinis wasting his time trying to bash the ps3. in every thread he just gets owned. ;-) seriously zerodin, why you come here? there are no news about the x360, MS it's not even going to do a conference in leipzig...
now put more money into this and bring it to the PS3. I am still waiting for the eyetoy to be implemented into games where head and body movement play a role in a game.
Sony has been able to develop a face recognition algorithm. Just look at pictures of real life humans on your PS3 in slideshow mode. It will zoom in to their faces. They should try to get the algorithm to work with real time video feed. This would be amazing and could lead to multiple applications.
Whats next Sony fit with balance mat? Sony sports? Kratos crossbow training? The most pathetic part will be the ones who always trashed motion sensing as complete garbage will forget all about it now that its Sony offering it, and by next gen they'll claim that Sony brought motion sensing back and made it worth using.
They may well do. But this is actually doing the movements according to the camera displayed on screen, not just moving something in a direction at a certain speed to 'echo' a movement.
It is inferior to what is offered by the Wii remote or did you just not read that article and just assume that since its from Sony it has to be better? Have fun adjusting the lighting in your house just to get it to work like the Wii Remote does now. I guess you also missed the part where it was only 2d tracking while Wii does 3d tracking? LOL it's funny to be proven right and the person doesnt even understand they are doing it.I mean it is clearly inferior from the article yet you are already trying to build it up as superior.
Ok, Voice, so you think just because his opinion doesn't walk hand in hand with your's mean he's a ps3 fanboy?
A nice little D/L'able PSN game to go along with my purchase of LBP and PSeye, don't you think?
http://www.joystiq.com/2005... Oops I guess they did. So much for the Wii being the "ORIGINAL" motion sensing technology.
I never knew that.
Dude the link to the patent in the article doesnt work. It is a fake. You really think Sony would go 3 years without throwing a lawsuit on Nintendo if that were real?I bet your really enjoying those 4d graphics too...
no cuz sony not like every other company that like to sue just to make some money cuz they know they will never be able to and no im not talking about ms or Nintendo so dont even try to start sh!t
Sweet, I would like this on PSN too. Will snatch it up for ps2 if I must.
i use my eyetoy fit and try to exercise this will be a hoot
Why did they even bother making the ps3 if they keep supporting the ps2 like this?
PS2 PSP PS3 the Untouchables
I wander why is MS not currently supporting the Xbox1? hell and they are still new games and money spent on R&D on the PS2...Reason being Sony is pretty serious about gaming... I had the Xbox1 one of the first....sh!t had to get raid of it and still cannot play old games on my 360.. Thats why I appreciate my PS3 if I choose not to purchase a New Console for at least the next ten years I know........there will still be support..Hell i was just sitting here thinking all I need a 1TB HDD for my PS3 and I be cool for a minute..
If they are going to turn the ps2 into another waggle fest- there will be no reason to have a wii.
I kind of agree with that. Certainly there is no point in owning a Wii for what most people want them for. Cr4ppy motion (before the motionplus comes out) But, unfortunately for hardcore fans, the Wii is also the only way you can experience Galaxy or Zelda. Which many people aren't bothered about but which I really enjoy.
What I did was buy a wii, mario galaxy, played it until I was done, then sold everything for near the price I paid.
If you can't get a reply from me, You're probably on my ignore list! Feel free to PM me, and I'll gladly delete the unread message at my leisure! Can't touch me!
*pokes zerodin firmly in the face* there i just did, now hush child!
Zerodin... Stop trying.... Please...
Probably a derka derka.
dont worry i wouldnt expect you to be inteligent enough to understand just go play halo 3 mmkay?
there is no copy right for technoloy like brand name. Just like the wireless controller wich xbox, wii, and ps3 all have.
Ermm.. There is such a thing as copyrighting for technology.. It's called patenting. I don't think anyone is saying that Sony is directly ripping off the Wii. After all, the EyeToy was released several years before the Wii. The question is.. why has it taken Sony so long to make such interesting use of the technology? And would they have even done so were it not for the success of the Wii?
the ps3 will have a glove that work with the Playstation eye allowing you to use your finger for interface. Looks like the one Tom Cruis use in "Minority Report" movie.
its better than paying $150 more than what a console is worth for motion controls.
there also making a shooter were the eye toy tracks the motion of your head,so when your leaning around a corner the eye toy follows yor movement and all you do is pull the trigger.PLAY B3YOND waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaay B3YOND!!!
The PS2 eye is a pretty cool idea..The PS3 Eye Toy has taken everything that Sony has learned from the previous EyeToy and is obviously still learning. Sony has repackage and re-engineer the New PS3 Eye Toy with a more complex system(PS3). In the very Near FUTURE Sony will be doing some pretty amazing things with the PS3 EyeToy.. http://www.eetimes.com/news... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... (everyone have seen this before)
Yea that Eye Toy is the future.
Man this is hilarious watching sony fans.A whole city of hypocrites.Yea Play Beyond Contradiction.
my guess is that they put it on ps2 to to see how it sells and if it sells good then they will put it on ps3 and perfect it.
If Sony could realease with Lucas Arts the SW: Force Unleashed to the PS3 with this sword 1:1.... OMFG it would indead destroy the Wii in salles for many many weeks to come.
how this pans out.
i love ps3 and sony but man we dont need gaYe stuff like this let gimmiickdo and xbiitch copy and paste we just need more amazing games like mgs4 and uncharted
well i did hear of a wiimote like controller for the ps3 coming out. It is also said to have - the motion sensing as the wii motion plus. But it isnt really inovative and doesnt claim to be so i dont understand how the xbox fanboys can say whey r copycats. Lips(singstar) avatars(home) and appearently some new thing similar to the playstation eye.
