The first Eye Toy was deviced by Dr. Richard Marks who had an idea of connecting a web cam to a ps2 to play games.The idea was then taken by Sce London studio who showed an early concept in 2002 at E3.Soon after the PS Eye was launched........
well then i guess Atari gave birth to all console so far. Playstation/Xbox/Nintendo console series all come from Atari's first console! YOSH IT ALL MAKES SENSE! /end sarcasm
Your sarcasm could be true...
everyone borrows ideas from everyone, if this didnt happen we would see almost no advancement today, I mean come on if bill gates didnt steal ideas from steve jobs we wouldent have windows
what the heck is that guy up there talking about?
@qface64 His first language is not English so don't mind his spelling.He is talking about a group of elite bankers and corrupt politicians seeking to plunge the world in an economic recession so the wealth and power is manipulated in their favor. You can research it or ignore it.
The Microsoft sidewinder controller released in 1998 that had the first motion control for a game (the game Microsoft: flight simulator) gave birth to it. In 2005 at E3 Bill gates got on stage and reminded people of it! No one has disagreed and I have one of the original sidewinder joystiqs so I know it exist. How is the Eye toy which came years later talking about giving birth? It is not even a controller that is mimicked. Please, PS3 fantoys! can't give credit where credit is do!
" The Microsoft sidewinder controller released in 1998 that had the first motion control for a game " Actually atari had one too. The simple thing people don't get is that Nintendo made "motion-controls" primary over gamepads. I think thats why they are more known for motion controls because they promoted their product to be all about that. The eye-toy is not something that was used on high priority. And motion controls were already wanted way before the eye-toy, the design and hardware was just either to expensive or there was lack of processing powers. Atari did it with one of their joystick, Nintendo tried it with the powerglove. And if we could consider pointing devices as motion controls then The super Scope and the nes gun were already there. " He is talking about a group of elite bankers and corrupt politicians seeking to plunge the world in an economic recession so the wealth and power is manipulated in their favor. " Well its been done before =P. So lets not be surprised if it were to happen again.
Why the sarcasm? It's true. The Atari 2600 gave birth to all modern consoles. @1.6 - The powerglove had motion controls long before Mr. Gates "came up" with the idea.
if you really think Atari gave birth to them, then you guys aren't giving the engineers/developers enough credit.
The ONLY difference is that the wii uses waggle controllers and the motion sensor bar, instead of just cameras to track your movement. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Trashy Nintendo. Stealing ideas and calling it innovation...
So didnt Sony "steal" the idea of making a console in the first place by your logic?
no! Sony stole the idea of using english letters in thier name! S-o-n-y >_>
Didn't read it but, the Wii was conceived in 2001, when the Gamecube was near in its shine concepts were already being talked about, in 2004 Nintendo talked to the public about it, and in 2005 it was unveiled. They wanted to change the way people interacted with games and that they did. Most likely the development of the actual hardware began somewhere in 2003 if they were to get it out by 06. The Eye Toy was released on the November 2003, there is no way they could have took'n the ideas from Eye Toy, that and it wasn't such a big hit when released so why would Nintendo go that route?
How long was the Eye Toy in development before being revealed in 2002? How long was talk of the Eye Toy floating around the development community before being launched in 2003? Also, the Eye Toy has sold 10.5mil units to date. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
they eye toy was the biggest waste of money at least the play station eye im guessing that's the ps3's eye toy huge waste of money as for the ps2 eye toy that one was alright for a bit the games did get boring really really fast but it was still pretty fun
It's an indispensable tool for making pictures and textures in LittleBigPlanet. The PS3Eye is also funny as all get out to see people's faces when racing/takingdown racers in Burnout.
i don't really like little big planet so i can't really use it for that and i can't even play eye of judgement there's no one top lay with
I'd say the Power Glove gave birth to the Wii.
It's so bad.
PS Eye Toy: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Miyamoto never told you what happened to your father. Wii: He told me enough! He told me you killed him! PS Eye Toy: No, I am your father. Wii: No. No. That's not true. That's impossible! PS Eye Toy: Search your feelings, you know it to be true! Wii: No! No!
damn.. bubbles for you...
Nice one Freakwave
...the catastrophic failures of both the N64 and the GameCube, gave birth to the Wii. :o
...if they were "catastrophic failures" then we wouldn't have the Wii to begin with. I enjoyed my N64 way more than my PS1, tbh.
Sony's Eye Toy should've had an abortion *EDIT* @ Below: I was just being sarcastic and witty
Why? So that the gaming industry could be truly suffering from the recession? You do realize that quite a bit of the 360 and PS3's success is from Wii owners branching out, right? No, probably not. Though it is a pretty simple observation.
@Cheeseknight28 "You do realize that quite a bit of the 360 and PS3's success is from Wii owners branching out" please tell me your just "acting" stupid...
O boy, fun fact is that Sony did not even invented the Eye-toy. But whatever "motion" controls/devices go way back.
The Wii is a gussied up, much easier to use Power Glove. Which was WAY back in the day.
SONY: WII, I AM YOUR FATHER!!!
I am not looking forward to anything on the Wii. The Eye Pet looks pretty cool, but we will see.
Um, the power glove gave birth to the Wii.
The internets are ruining my English.
