Microsoft and Sony are positioning their motion control devices as innovative and game-changing. Is there more to the story? Perhaps this explains it.
thats true to an extent sony were the first ones to put it to use in games for a popular console.
Didn't sony showcase motion tech to the industry 11 years ago? Im pretty sure they did.
Didn't Nintendo have a motion control device 20 years ago? Wasn't a great one but they still had it. Nintendo Power Glove http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
thats what i am saying, sony were the first company to put the motion tech to use in games. As a proper alternative to controling games with motion vs the early crap like the power glove.
21 years ago.
Anyways, Sony worked on motion gaming since the beginning of the PS2. They even had motion controllers being demoed at events such as E3 and Games Con as early as 2000. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sony ripped off the Wii 10 years ago? O_o @Brasi82: A glove is different from a controller. Plus, the very link you provided stated that it wasn't Nintendo's creation. "Though it was an officially licensed product, Nintendo was not involved in the design or release of this accessory. Rather, it was designed by the team of Grant Goddard and Sam Davis for Abrams Gentile Entertainment (AGE), made by Mattel in the United States and PAX in Japan."
These all are videos from long ago, with Dr Richard Marks demoing motion gaming with a camera: this is with the 3dv camera that MS owns now: http://www.youtube.com/watc... These are videos of Dr Richard Marks demoing motion-stuff with the PS2 and the EYETOY (last gen) =/= PS-EYE (better camera) http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... So, technically Sony didn't "steal" the idea from Nintendo, Dr Richard Marks explained in the First video that the 3dv camera has issues and it's expensive for what it can do, the other videos show how much he could implement motion-based gaming with the PS2 and the EYETOY, Sony have Patented the "wand" as shown in those videos since 2004, so they were redesigning and making the device better as we see Move now That doesn't take any merit to Nintendo for releasing the wii-mote, N came out first, Sony waited, made their proprietary motion-device better and now they're ready to release it...
And the Atari had something called Le Stick.
Does the Move and the Eye use the same camera?
It's the same camera, the camera is called Eye.
That Miyamoto smile is hilarious.
@chspicer the move a controller that works in conjunction with the eye to make a better motion control. it is a combination of the sixaxis motion and a camera capture. Nintendo created console motion control with the power glove over 20 years ago
how low can this site get
The BEST article I've read all day.
Not the best for me, but one of.
Microsoft Buy 3DV company and brag about the future of gaminng and Sony was allready busy back in 1998 and Nintendo is the only one who copy from Sony. I don't know wy i get this disagee's, but MS buy 3DV company and brag about future of gaming without contols, if this is not true than you are misinform. Sony was allready develop this technolochy before 2000. Nintendo came up with motion controles in 2002 for develop, second this motion controles is from another company who give the licence to Nintendo for using this technolochy. And yet i get disagree's without any arguments, shame on you.
They just ripped it off
So Sony ripped off Nintendo 6 years before the release of the Wii at that expo where they demoed "Move" in it's concept form. RIGHHHTTT
http://www.gamesradar.com/p... Sony inovates with Move 10 years ago. And if you want with Video and Audio, take a look the first 30 Seconds: http://ps3.nowgamer.com/vid...
Someone doesnt know how to read...shame.
'Steal' is a word used by childish ignorant people who are afraid that the other company will take the device and make it better. Did every company that made a smart phone after the first one 'steal' it? Did every company that made a computer after the first one 'steal' the design? Did every car company who made a car after the first car Ford made 'steal' the idea? No. It's just a defense wall fanboys put up like a comfort blanket to stave off fear that a rival company could actually make the product they invested in and defend to death look like cheap scrap compared to their own. This is why people get so mad when they find out there is proof that Sony was working on motion controllers long before everyone else. You are taking their comfort blanket away.
I think 'adopt' would be a better word or say it was 'inspired from'.
