videos like these show that what they are doing,is nothing that hasn't been done before.

and this guy is kicking just fine.

the technology has been in the works.just NOT by them.they BOUGHT it from someone else.any PROOF that they were working on it has not been REVEALED from any video site can clearly see Microsoft Surface.but no PROOF that they ever was working on gesture controls before BUYING 3DV.and it looks like the MANY videos on youtube are bringing back the inner child of having fun on ps2.

microsoft are liers and clearly copying sony.some say sony was copying wii.but clearly wii games were copying eyetoy games and just added a controller.

the experience they are bringing out is the ps2 experience reborn.

darthv722859d ago

you are convinced they are one and the same. I am a person who is willing to give benefit of the doubt to something until i try it myself.

You just dont want MS to release this and it makes me wonder why. Does this coming out in some way devalue the enjoyment of playing games on another platform or do you have other issues?

I am taking a neutral position on this so I am not for or against your opinion.

Apocalypse Shadow2859d ago (Edited 2859d ago )

microsoft speaks as if they have been working on this for's a fanboyism.they bought the technology.truth is not fanboysim.

if they were working on this for years...."how could 3dv have offered it to nintendo and sony if it was microsoft's tech?"logical conclusion right?

now,i could prove sony was working with it on ps2 with just one video.but we have all seen it already.but that's not the issue.

the issue is that microsoft claims gesture has never been done before on consoles.that's another lie.they could claim that avatars have not been done.i could give them that.but not gesture.but the same jumping around on kinect is the same gameplay on ps2 in my videos above.

does it make my games any less fun?nope.i believe sony is providing the overall quality this gen.and back it up with 20+ developers that they didn't close during a microsoft backing kinect with in house devs?nope.they closed most of them.shows their support for gaming.

gesture can be fun.i have eyetoy and i know what they can do.kinect will have fun games coming out on it.but the games will play similar to what i and 15 million others have already seen and played.i just don't buy the hype and 500,000,000 dollars of wasted money that wasn't on their core audience.

it tells me they had the money,but didn't want to waste it on them.if i was a core 360 gamer,i would call bullsh!t on them for not releasing more than 4 core titles a year.they've been more dangling a carrot in front of them making them salivate over a small amount of games...well..and gouging their pocket books.

do i want to rain on legitimate 360's fans parade?no.i want to rain on the 360 fanboys parade and microsoft's and their lies and halftruths for the last 5 years.

THE MAX SPEED 212858d ago (Edited 2858d ago )

Does it matter if they did it first or not? I could swear I've seen people use the PS MOVE elsewhere ... Oh yeah Wii-mote and nunchucsk. You dont see me typing paragraphs about it. stop crying for god's sake.

Pedobear Rocks2858d ago

Nintendo didn't come up with it first either...

big_silky2858d ago

dude, the thing is the "core" 360 audience is doing just fine, they're perfectly happy. it's fans from the other side that are telling them how they should feel. i don't see any legit 360 owners complaining.

to play devils advocate, sony is actually wasting their money on all these devs. after 4 years and all these games they're still 3rd place, the public at large really doesn't care and nor do ps3 owners when you look at the #s. these "4 core titles each year" has kept MS firmly in the #2 spot for 4 years, why change what isn't broken?

if anything sony spreads themselves too thin imo, they're a jack of all trades yet a master of none.

You are a blatant fanboy that makes no sense in the points that you bring up. I did type up a response to your invalid blind biased points that made no sense to prove my unbiased valid point, but my response was deleted somehow and I don't feel like wasting anymore time on your nonsense to type my response up again. Dont take offense to this but here is a little advice: make sure you use common sense and bring up valid truthful points from now on when you try to bring up points concerning the stupid fanboy console war garbage that you have shown that you are clearly involved in, because when you bring up the nonsense that you posted in the post that I am replying to it not only wastes every unbiased person's(such as myself) time reading it but it makes you look foolish. Of course you don't have to take my advice but it would be wise to do so.

SkyGamer2858d ago (Edited 2858d ago )

Every game company is not completely honest. What about dual hdmi on the ps3? What about router functionality? What about 4D? Let's talk about copying. The dualshock3. Copied X360 center logo button. Copied trigger buttons. Copied flatter thumbsticks. Copied HDD from first Xbox. That is just this gen. How about copying Nintendo? Copied Joystick. Copied Rumble. Even Ubisoft called them sony "me too". Let's not even get into removing features . . .

Not saying sony is a bad company, just that every company spurs untruths.

skyblue142132857d ago (Edited 2857d ago )

-"What about dual hdmi on the ps3?"

What are you talking about?

-"What about 4D?"

The ps3 is capable of 4d in which I found out reading an article a long while ago, unfortunately I cant find the article anymore on the net. From what I remember though the article was referring to things like degradation and growth in real time that was at the time(and still is for consoles) only possible on ps3.

-"Copied X360 center logo button."

It is possible, but then again the ps1 and ps2 had center buttons so to speak but they weren't for anything like what the center buttons for xbox 360 and ps3 are like now, so that probably(and I mean probably not definite) might be valid.

-"Copied trigger buttons."

You are wrong on that one. The snes was the first to have trigger buttons, then came ps1, n64, ps2, dreamcast, and then the xbox etc...
as a matter of fact the xbox controller looks like a rip off of the dreamcast controller more than anything except the xbox has the exterior shape of a playstation controller.

-"Copied flatter thumbsticks."

Are you serious??? Do you know how ridiculous that is and sounds! You must be desperate.

-"Copied HDD from first Xbox."

Wrong again. Believe it or not the older model ps2's(which came out before xbox btw) had an internal hdd expansion slot so you can use a hdd with your ps2. If you want to go further back the n64 had an hdd serial port on the bottom of the console so you can use a hdd with the console, but due to low support and the high price of hdd's at the time it did not last long and was limited to japan.

-"How about copying Nintendo? Copied Joystick."

Wrong again. To my knowledge the atari 2600 was the first console to use joysticks.

-"Copied Rumble."

This award goes to sony which came out with the dual shock just before the n64 rumble pak was released.

-"Even Ubisoft called them sony "me too"."

Motion controls were used way before the wii came out, I guarantee you that. And let's not get the wii's entry level motion controls confused with sonys entry level motion controls, because besides the outward appearance in a slight way, the performance is probably a lot better with the move. I have no intentions or interest in getting the move so I am not biased.

-"Let's not even get into removing features"

No, no, lets get into it while you brought the subject up. While it is true that sony removed the linux feature(AS IN ONE FEATURE NOT FEATURES LIKE YOU STATED) which is the only feature that sony has removed from the ps3 console. It was a feature that about at least 95% or more of the ps3 populace never used. While I would of preferred having the feature stay just for the sake of having the feature, I would have cared less if it was taken out because I had no use for the feature as I am sure most of the ps3 populace would have no use for the feature either, beside me as well as many others have computers which does the exact same thing as linux and you can get linux as an alternative to windows on a computer, so whats your point?

Speaking of features, what features does the other 2 competitors consoles have that the ps3 doesn't?... As a matter of fact the ps3 to my knowledge has more features than the other 2 consoles combined.
