Trials of Topoq is a strange one. Trying to explain how it works to someone is a tough task, so CVG.com is going to show it to you instead.
So check out their video so see what is easily the coolest uses of the USB camera, ever seen so far.
I'm a bit fan of these game but this is something else. Way cooler and more awesome than anything before it. Coolest indeed.
PlayStation Eye. I'm sure their are alot of other games in development for it that we don't even know about yet. Also imagine adding Playstation Eye "mini games" to some of the big titles.(It'll have to optional of course) but like face mapping, or imagine like in a shooter there is a part where you use your body and the PlayStation Eye to dodge slow motion bullets or avoid obstacles! or in an RPG you use it to open chests or something or a shooter where you only use a light gun and the eye and your clearing a building you use the gun to shoot and your arms or legs to kick open doors! The possibilities are almost endless.
there was another game for the eye that looked much better.
i cant remember the name but it was one of the games that was in a story about the three new games for the eye..........
scottie2521, Re you talking about Operation Creature Feature?
Yeah that game was also rad. I'm personally a big fan of games like Balance, Mercury and Marble Madness so Topoq excites me more but I also really love that Op Creature game.
yeah thats the one. i just found it going through the old pages. you beat me to it.
Haha, eat your heart out wii, this is how you get interactive with games.
the ps3 truly is about variety - from killzone, to rachet, to echochrome, to this - it's kinda like a wii + 360 in one, expensive box
I hit disagree by mistake meant to hit agree. But your comment is true i own all 3 consoles but like the PS3 better for its diverse lineup and read my comment above for some things they could do with this.
who ever comes up with these ideas needs a pay rise! the potentail here is outstanding!!
where is the video?
EDIT: NM i found it and thats pretty insane! The future is looking bright for gamers.
wii + a 360?! what are you f!cking retarded. No similarities AT all, ps3 is best for grilling steaks and ribeye's, that what George Foreman grills do. Oh ya nice piece of black plastic! LOL
u r the definition of a stupid fuking fanboy u d1ck get a life and stop eating gates sh1t every time his goes to the loo
Their is a reason you have 2 bubbles.
Comparing the PS3 to a George Foreman grill. That's new, funny, and refreshingly original! Where do you guys come up with this stuff?
However if we are on the subject of cooking, would it not make more sense that the 360 would be better at cooking? I mean it obviously is capable of getting hotter right?
Then agian I guess you actually need the unit to cook on it. Too hard to cook on it if it's in the repair facility.
See what I did there? I took your joke, and turned it around to make one of my own. Really did only require 5mins of my brain power.
Gosh you guys are just so original.
dude.. you put a rib eye on a george foreman grill... thats... just.... blasphemy. You are an abomination to grilling.
Keep it up and soon I'll never have to see you again.
Rhezen:"That what".....go back to school kid!
I believe its just the pseye now, not the eyetoy....
Yes I know that isn't the submitters fault.
I like it but i know Studio london has been creating more amazing eye toy games than this, i'm sure we'll see a load of them at TGS and then they will be released on Blu-Ray disc at some time, i really can't wait the tech in this eye toy is amazing...
For anyone who isn't upto date on what this camera can actually do reply and i'll get the details...
ehhh... I know many of you will think I am just flaming this eyetoy camera. But I am not flaming the camera I think the execution sucks... ofcourse the game looks nicer... graphics... but what is this camera doing that the PC camera:
These cameras may be able to do better (more accuracy and map a face into a game)... but as far a game are concern.. it's all the same $h!t... they suck! All the games are about pushing things.. or touch things... and they all show a reflection of you in order to help to know where you are at...
When Microsoft, Sony, PC presented this cameras they didn't say it will be great for casual gamers.... They created the impression that hardcore game would use this... I personally didn't picture myself pushing a ball... around... I picture myself playing a FPS, fighting game... not with some stupid reflection on the background... but making games like Halo 3, Kill Zone 2...
Some of you dare to say, " BETTER than wii " and many of you know how critical I am about the wii.... but the wiimote execute the way it should. It can be use for many games.. on better than others... but this camera thing it's all about potential... which was not use with different eyetoy version on the PS2... PC.... xbox 360... etc...
Until they start making real games and not all these pushy crap... this is not worth it.... I regret buying my xbox 360 camera expect for playing Uno, CC3 or using it on my PC to video chat... but for games... ewwwwww.
PS3 news? Post all the links you want its not going to change anyone opinion that this game looks fun and that the Eye has a lot of potential. I mean are you just afraid or don't have self confidence or something so you feel the need to try to get people on your side? Let people enjoy the news without you trying to spit your nonsense. Links and your opinion isn't going to change anyone elses.
It's not just any camera though it's cutting edge...
"Minority Report style menu systems on the, er, menu for Sony's next console
Comments made by SCEE vice president Phil Harrison in an interview with the Australian Financial Review suggest that a more advanced version of the EyeToy motion sensor is being considered for PlayStation 3.
Speaking to the business publication, Harrison stated that Sony is investigating the integration of a motion sensing device into its next console, and suggested that the existing EyeToy was a preliminary test for the technology.
"EyeToy was a signpost for things in the future," enthused Harrison. "If you can attach very high-resolution, low-cost video cameras you can deduce some quite interesting things about their users. We'll be able to extrapolate eye movement and gestural recognition, more complicated finger movement, and the logical next step of that is to deduce from a person's facial expression and demeanour what their emotion state is."
Harrison also discussed the possibility of the new console sporting a menu system which was entirely driven by hand gestures, comparing it to the computer system used by Tom Cruise's character in the movie Minority Report."
"As well as opening up new gameplay possibilities, and scaling down the importance of the joypad interface - often seen as a barrier to more mainstream acceptance of gaming as a pastime - it would offer a number of other benefits to the console.
For example, online multiplayer games - an area which Sony is sure to promote strongly on the PS3 - could use the feed from the camera for in-game message windows, allowing you to see your opponents and teammates as well as hear them. Although there are obvious privacy and security issues with such an approach, it's not hard to envisage video cameras being to the next generation of consoles what voice headsets are to the current generation "
"The patented process would allow a game system to view a rodlike controller on a two-dimensional camera image and map its position in 3D space. The title of the patent specifically notes that the process is intended to let users control the action in a game. Technologies like this have been devised before, but they've required multiple cameras to work. In March GameSpot reported on a Microsoft patent that required two cameras.
The Tech-On! report indicates that the patent leverages the PlayStation 3's Cell processor, which it says is "optimized for image recognition."
Video of what Sony were working on a year and a half ago: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
now that's insane...
But the 360's camera sux! PS3's Eye is cool.
Ahh, poor Bladestar all bitter cause he has no Eyetoy. You have none, hence it must be bad, its the same with the PS3, right, you have none, hence its bad and you feel the need to bash on it every chance you get. Other people would call that bitter childish envy, but then thats what we all expected from you anyways.
Watch a nice video so you feel all better: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Eyedentify and Eye of Judgement,
Well those 2 games is a most!
Well if you can call Eye of Judgement a game...Lol...
Some board game little like pokemon.
All ive seen from u is hatred on the ps3...All your comment's have been
negative things about the ps3...I thing you are a xbla fanboy or pc.......One more thing.........Get a life!!!!
while bladestar is supporting 360 where microsoft NEVER thinks of these types of games,sony always supports devs who think outside the box.
eye of judement
shadow of the collosus
and now trials of topoq
keep expanding gaming sony.that's how you win.not being innovative by copying other companies(microsoft) who are already innovative like sony and nintendo.
................mag lev super train....................
I have seen a couple of vids on this now (from PSN) and I rather like the idea. Will certainly give it a try.
I also like the Ignore facility on these pages which is why I am not grumbling at bladestar as I cant see what he/she wrote.
