PSU quarterbacks use PlayStation to learn

Jay Paterno is melding the world of bits and bytes with that of hits and highlights in his Penn State quarterback meetings.

It's all made possible by the newest addition to the coaching staff -- a PlayStation 3.

The idea is to give the Penn State quarterbacks more work on their playbook, which is loaded onto a Madden football game for use in the video game machine.

Simulators long have been used for the training of pilots, but those are high-buck machines. NASCAR driver Carl Edwards struck a blow for off-the-shelf video games when he won a race at Pocono in 2005, his first visit to the track, and credited it to preparation he got from playing a retail video game. Edwards has said since that a neophyte could play a video game of a track and be 90 percent of the way to mastering it.
"It would be tough to put a percentage on it," said Paterno of the PlayStation work for his quarterbacks, but he's convinced it will pay dividends.

CodeMonkey73619d ago

The guy just openly makes fun of me because I am black and all you can say is "don't use all caps"?????

This site is beyond racist. You people make me sick

ElementXYZ3619d ago (Edited 3619d ago )

Doshy, this is between me and the Monkey please mind your own business. This guy thought it was funny to harass me so this is what he gets.

Go ahead and check the posts find any of my recent ElementX and most of them will have Codemonkey giving me sh*t for no reason. If he wants this to stop all it will take is an apology.

until then

CODEMONKEY = RECTAL WART

that not a bad idea on how to learn plays, you get to see them all from an above camera view. Notice how they weren't complaining about the 30fps?

sabbath4203619d ago

thats what the coach must be. Why would he use the ps3 as a traing tool with madden at 30 fps? instead of the 360 at 60 fps.
