Since the NGP was announced, many people have wondered “What is the front camera useful for?”. Finally, today we received information about it from a Sony inside developer. ...
Sounds pretty cool.
It would be cool if you could video chat with NGP and PS3.
This is 1 piece of hardware I don't see anyone complaining about. Thats great.
So the NGP has a mic on the front as well?
yes, it has a mic in the front as well.
plus...why would you want to have mic at the back to begin with?
This is the kind of handheld system gamers want. Its developers and gamers dream
Everything's sounds great about the system.... That's until Sony announces the price.
If they decide to have it "open" for devs to do apps for it--and have Skype or something, I'll sale my iPhone for it.
yep, 3g+skype+bluetooth= amazing
Because Sonys consoles have always been "open?" Last time I checked, they were suing people for "opening" up the PS3 to developers. I'm sure they will have apps on it, but there's no chance Sony will make it "open" in the sense that users can download and install any code they want on it. It will probably be much like the iPhone, a curated platform that is moderated by Sony. And there's nothing wrong with that, "open" is not always the best answer.
I'm pretty sure he means an app store sort of ordeal. Having everything open would be a nightmare.
cross game video chat? lol
"from a Sony inside developer" - Who knows w/ a comment like that. Seems like a great idea though.
it only make sense... PS3/NGP facetime should be a given... If Sony was smart... They'd just ink a deal with Skype and release it on PS3... Instead of wasting time and money developing something new... Easy way to draw in new customers... And im sure they could make it only PSN+ compatible for the added revenue... I dont have PSN+ right now... But i would sign up for this feature alone...
But wouldn't that make PS+ just like XBOX Live? Exactly the same but with cross game voice chat and a $55 per year sub fee?
i kinda wish the NGP used android as it's OS with access to android market. sony wouldn't even need to create individual applications for stuff
well, thats pretty obvious considering that it has a front and back facing camera. i just wish i would be able to communicate to PS3 gamers via NGP via video and voice. i mean, this should happen considering we would all be on the same PSN.
I Thing The NGP is More Power than PS3,XBOX360,WII and 3ds Combine
Hahaha I imagine this being liek Starfox with a random head just spouting off tips on the side of the screen. Could be kind of fun.. Imagine Warhawk style game where you can talk to your squad via cam.. DL speed would come into play but a guy can scheme.
Ooooooooooooooo. Apple ! GTGO of the way PSP 2 Is gonna execute !
