Sony's much rumored motion sensing controller for the Playstation 3 is real, and it will likely be unveiled at E3.
my sister told me eyePet uses advanced motion sensing so either the playstation eye will be upgraded at e3 or this motion tech is real btw my sister doesnt work at sony but she works at a firm sony uses for marketing its games in eu
Who cares... sony will never match up to the Wii's motion controller. Press Agree.
"Sony's controller apparently used LEDs (light emitting diodes, essentially little electric light sources) and a small webcam to track the device's movements. Because the camera can read different color lights and the shape and angle of each light, it's much more accurate than the Wii-mote. It can track precise movements, including along the Z axis (pushing toward and away from the TV; something the Wii is really bad at) as well as velocity." Combine this with 3D? Sword fighting anyone?
You can't see me with a sword son... /throws smoke bomb and vanishes like shinobi
I'm not surprise, this must be the "Motion" in the riddle Sev gave us on this page http://playstationlifestyle...
But if it is from Sony, i trust them. Al least they fully support what they release, like the beta for example. I will also support them, they deliver with the PS3 and i am grateful. It may sound blind fanboyism, but that is the way it is, it has Nothing to do with the competition.
Fanboyism and confidence are two different things.
the PS3Eye was going to be something great. it's useful with it's built in, noise canceling mic but not supported as much as i wish they would. This device might fall in the same category as that thing.
If that stuff about it being more accurate than the Wiimote is true, this might turn out to be something I could enjoy. One of the things I dislike most about the Wiimote is how inaccurate it is. It actually makes many games I have played worse, not better. However, there is nothing inherent in the concept that says that motion controls have to be crappy, just because the implementation in the Wii is poor. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
Two years late :( I guess better late than never though
this should be usable for the PS2 think about how it would rival the wii price= lower downside though its definitely less powerful i think it can still beat wii in a graphics race
showing the awesomeness of this 'ps3mote' a few months back. I clearly remember seeing a video of it.
madworld...please give us madworld
"Last thing we would like to leave you off with is… We all know E3 is GOing to be filled with HEAVY announcements, potentially COLOSSAL even if we’re lucky. Don’t let all the MASSIVE amounts of rumors RAIN on your parade. It’s a great TIME to be living the PlayStation LifeStyle, so TUNE in as we bring all the news, LITTLE and BIG to you as things are set in MOTION every step of the way." GO -psp go HEAVY -Rain? COLOSSAL -ICO MASSIVE -MAG RAIN -Heavy Rain TIME- R&C a crack in time TUNE- MUSIC STORE??? MOTION- CONTROL Any other guesses?
Im Quiet Sure Tho Nintendo Will Have Problem With It It Shouldn't Really Because People Who Buy The Wii Is Normally Because Its Cheaper I Think PS Will Use It To Its Full Potential Unlike Nintendo Which Still Looks Like A Cheap Toy. I Know Little Kids Are Gonna Disagree But They Need To Realise PS Is The Future Untill Microsoft Come Out With Something Else. In A Way I Wanted Nintendo To Collapse So They Multi Platform But I Know Its Not Going To Happen :(
is it 2006 again ?
Why is this awesome?... When Microsoft has hints that they would be doing motion, everyone laughed at them and said that it would be a terrible idea. Now, when the fact that Sony MIGHT announce such a product, everyone praises it and says that the depth of this is going to be massive. You guys really confuse the hell out of me.
Because Microsoft's motion controller will be crappy, like all of their hardware and in the end have no potential. While Sony's will be sterdy and actually work.
Doesn't sony already HAVE motion control? WTF would they want to copy the wii? Sony added analog controls to their controller after the n64 was revealed to have analog control now they want to release a ps3mote after nintendo has had one? I just dont get it. Sony should just concentrate on the hardcore and leave the softcore to the likes of nintendo and MS.
Will simply use the existing PS Eye. Trust me. ^_^
"Because Microsoft's motion controller will be crappy, like all of their hardware and in the end have no potential. While Sony's will be sterdy and actually work." Yeah... just like the Sony VAIO.. lol.
Rumors and patents for this thing have been circulating around for years now, not too big of a surprise.
i bet both microsoft and sony are gona release this damn thing i hope they both dont go casual or ill quit gaming
A real true lightsaber game. Golfing, pool, baseball, and football would be great.
lol even if if they did go casual from now on id be satisfied with the library we have now, including those that are coming soon. Still not encouraging it to actually happen.
millions of ppl said the same thing about the wii controller... Smells like Sony is gonna try and cash in on a "Sony Sports" title
MLB the show 2010 now with motion controls.
more future fps using LED GUNCON instead of the traditional controller? one can only wish. http://www.renchi.com/uploa... or.. Led sabers for star wars and bleach games
i have the guncon 3, i think its pretty disappointing though, since its still not like the arcade, were you get recoil for shooting despite that being possible on current gen hardware today.
i really really really hate the wii and what its doing to gaming.
I agree with you. Sony would have to have some really insanely cool motion controller for me to be at all interested. Cause i hated my wii when i had it.
If Sony (and Microsoft as well) can give us the stupid fun games like Wii Sports but also provide the God of Wars/Halos then I wouldn't mind at all. I would only have a problem if they decided to focus too much of their attention to this motion sensing technology.
If sony and microsoft can give us tiger woods 10 with ps3/360 graphics and wii motion controls i'm all in.
would be amazing, but I would also like Virtua Tennis. :)
SONY ALREADY HAS A MOTION CONTROLLER!
I have used it in a few games and it is not insanely accurate by any means. Good idea, poor design.
Thank god someone realizes this. Why would Sony sink money into a motion sensing remote, when they have the sixaxis already. And if developers havent embraced motion controls with the sixaxis, what makes people think they will do so with a remote?
That has a secondary function of motion control - a gimmick. But it's still essentially the run of the mill Dual Shock. It can't be used in games as the wii'mote/nunchucks combo.
Who cares? I don't like waggle.
So, So sad.
Sony doesn't need this. They just need to put more attention into the eye toy. I doubt after they released one game for the eye toy they would be itching to jump to the next thing.
Maybe this will be bundled with a Eye Toy and a game...
it'll likely be filled with the motion pluss tech. there's no excuse.
i find this hard to believe, not saying its a lie i don't know that but just doubtful.
I cant believe you posted your auction listing here. This isn't usenet.
Who better to beat Nintendo at their own game than Sony...
This will be different.
U think that PS3, will replace all the Wii units sold to retirement homes and rehabilitation centers? HAH! It would take a genius to come up with that kind of take over. Although i'd love to see it.
I know right, look at the Sixaxis.
That might be true, but for the very same reason I wonder how Nintendo will possibly do as well next generation as it has this generation. Are all those casual gamers really going to be wanting to buy a new console in only a few years time? I doubt it. Depends on the games though. If Sony or Microsoft came out with some really compelling casual games they might be able to gain some of the market share of that demographic. What I don't want is for MS or Sony's push into the casual territory to cause them to release fewer "hardcore", in-depth games. If that happens I will be really disappointed. Already I didn't like the childish avatars that Microsoft implemented in an effort to be more like the Wii. If they try to go more casual I suspect it will only serve to further alienate the hardcore gamers.
The wii controler is the worst that has happended to gaming, period...
can u even grow facial hair?
Im working as an paramedic, what do you do with youre life? Atleast im contributing to this piece of sh1t world! Edit: Sorry, im a little cranky today..
If Sony and MS bring their own versions of the wii-mote then how wrong you are. They know a little bit more than we do about the game industry and have invested millions. so watch this space.
If Sony decides to do this, I'm fine with it. But don't expect me to care. If I wanted to waggle a remote-control looking thing in the air, I'd've bought Wii.
It might be nice to have a new gadget for the Ps3 but the thing is howmuch will it cost and are there going to be more lawsuits with this controller. But I honestly think Sony should have had this controller prior to launch of the Ps3 or wait till the release of the PS3 before they braught out this new controller.
Is this the 3rd party motion controller similar to the one that is being done for the 360 or is this actually a Sony product? It sounds just like what was rumored from MS last year that never was announced thankfully. If I wanted motion games I would/will buy a Wii. That is not what I bought a 360 or PS3 for. However, like someone said above if they can continue to deliver AAA blockbusters that push gaming and they want to have the ability to make fun little motion games like Wii Sports than I don't have a problem with that. I can guarantee neither Sony or MS will replicate Nintendo's success with the buying public with motion controls. It's too late for that.
Great graphics with motion controls should be good. RE4 was a good game that made good use with the WiiMote.
In all fairness RE4 Wii version was the best edition of a grat game-and probably still one of the best five Wii games there are. I tell you something else-I'd love to be able to play RE5 with that control set up too. It was poor from Capcom not to give wii owners another chance to use those controls as they worked almost too well. A motion sensing edition of Resi5 would be a thing of joy to me and make playing the SP practically bearable. Thing is I just don't see why it's taken them so long if they're going to do it-the tech wasn't even new when the Wii started using it. I dunno whether to believe Sony are doing this or not.
Sonys president David Reeves says the ps3 will dominate in 2013 http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... And now rumors of bringing a gimmick motion sensing controller like the wii.
...I told them to do that, but to put it on the PS2 for direct competition for the Wii. Plus, it would give the Wii some new life, seeing that Wii developers will be working with consoles with roughly the same power. But they never listen. :P
Sony need to stop copying nintendo if you ask me the ps3 controller with motion sensing is better and I like the ps2 controller look.
Resident Evil 5 should work great with a WiiMote like control. RE4 was perfect with the WiiMote but it was too easy too.
Many of u are arguing that this device should have been released with the launch of the system. But do u think over the price? These wii-buyers would have never purchased ps3 with 599 dollar price tag attached to it. I would bet that when if Sony announce this thing at the E3, they will slash it down to 299$. Maybe with a slime ps3?
If they release a decent motion control device and support it in the right way, without cutting any development time or money from the real games then it can only be good. If it helps bring the large casual gaming market over to the PS3 (people who want a Blu-ray player and fun party games all in one) then that can only help Sony shift units and have a much bigger install base. Then hopefully the real games will gain from this as sony will be in a position to use the money gained from the casual gamers to invest in making a better all round service.... assuming they stick to the way they are going at the moment and adding as much usability to the PS3 as possible. I play my PS3 all the time, but I never play my Wii as I find it boring. After playing Wii Sports I couldn't wait for some decent Golf games to come out. But after playing Tiger Woods and taking it back and getting a refund I realised that the Wii's motion control is only good for simple party games (which I assume is why nintendo are bringing out motion plus or whatever its called). If the PS3 can do it right then being able to play all the normal games with the normal controller, but also being able to get certain games like tiger woods with motion control is just a good thing. The only potential problem with it I see would be if they try to give motion control functionality to games that it doesn't suit. Basically if I can play COD/ect ect as normal, but also have access to golf, tennis, boxing, party games with the motion control then I will be happy with that. If done right its no different than having some extra games with different controllers like guitar hero for example; just cos they released a game that used a little plastic guitar controller it didn't affect the other side of gaming. Sorry about straining your eyes with the long ass post!
How sad are sony? They copy everything from Nintendo. Nintendo made rumble....$ony copies Nintendo make analogue sticks....$ony copies Nintendo make motion sensing....$ony copies Nintendo makes light gun...$ony copies $ony is a joke.
lolol i want to see the bots faces this e3 when MicroFu*k announces something similar along the lines.
well third part is making a xbox 360 one.Aswell as ps3. http://www.destructoid.com/...
MicroF*ck? Thats the most unoriginal insult ever...
