VG247: Head of comms at SCEA, Patrick Seybold, has told VG247 that the PlayStation Motion Controller will be "promoted" at release with an "aggressive approach"
they better be aggressive. dont turn this into a PS eyetoy/eye
Its identical to the Wii so i dont see how then can market it without seeming like a copycat
At least they made their own hardware like nintendo, shame it cant be said for the other guy.
"Identical" if the Wii was more accurate.
So what do you call Natal?
You're right, to a certain extent. Sony will have to be very clever with the advertising otherwise the casual Wii owning crowd are going to see the commercials and think it's just a wii rip off. However us people in the know will know better.
Natal=eyetoy. PS wand is far more accurate than the wii's motion control. In addition Natal is far more accurate than an eyetoy. Too bad natal will take up 30% of the 360's already insuffiicient processor resources whereas the arc should theoretically make little significant difference at all to the performance of the ps3 (partly due to its 3.2ghz xdr ram and spus which will be calculating and transferring the tracking data)
Make compelling software and it will sell itself.
Push the Wand! Push the Arc! Way out! Go Sony Go!!!
If its hardcore yes if its casual then f*ck em.
good to hear :)
Cause the way they advertise there product's half the time is not what i call aggressive it seems a bit laid back imho. If they want this to sell well they need to start putting the Playstation arc in some kids tv programs to help it to sell more and do what MS did with Natal in Smallville, They need to advertise like crazy just like MS do with there products and stop thinking that just because it has the Sony/ Playstation name brand it will do most of the work for them.
when is sony's GDC Conference
Do you know what time it will be airing in the UK and what site is covering it?
i've been sitting on the eyetoy and the pseye waiting for new games to take advantage of motion conttrol.with the arc,i can have even more fun with my family without getting a wii. cool things is that sony is doing things right. they have already done ACCURACY right. they have listened to gamers and have done CONTROLS right. looking at the games they have released over 3 years,they have done that RIGHT too. i'm ready for tomorrow sony.show me the stuff.
I have a feeling that Sony will be very successful with their motion controller. I think people will be shocked. To be honest I think Sony's success with their motion controller will hurt Wii sales a lot. This takes away from the Wii's uniqueness. Nintendo will be fine because they are releasing Mario, Zelda, and Metroid this year.
