Wouldn’t it be better if the PlayStation Move could be used on the move? A recently published patent from SCEA suggests that the company may indeed be planning to make the Move compatible with the NGP and PSP.
well that would def. be interesting.
Note: he said "interesting," not "good" or "bad" however, I am saying this is bad. Why would I want to use Move on my PORTABLE gaming devince?
Would be funny if it was a finger attachment, like a little blue ball at the end of your middle finger.
I'm confused what the real purpose of this really is. If you are using PS Move, then the screen is hard to read since it is so small. I guess the only reason I see this is as a protective patent similar to what patent trolls do. Sit on a bunch of patents to sue others or prevent others from using it. Note, all major companies do this including MS and wouldn't surprise me Nintendo.
Hook NGP to the back of the person in front of you and walk down the street playing. That would be awesome /s
Well, it is just a patent. I'd go as far to say Nintendo doesn't really use 90% of its patents, and the other big 2 aren't really much of an exception. I think the hope is that the NGP can push portable to start to overtake consoles, because they can do so much and with a dock or whatever, they could give it many of the same functions (and run on a TV for the time). Then when you wanted to play on the go, you just unplug. I wouldn't mind something like that....but I think we'd have to give the technology a few more decades, first.
Its sorta hard to stare at the little monitor and keep track of your arm movments unless they release a projector attachment, then maybe it might rule
because the NGP's front facing camera has the capabilities of the PS Eye which means the NGP can be a PS Eye substitute that can connect to a TV. But the best functionality I can see an NGP unit does is to function as a PS3 controller with LCD screen ala PocketStation/Dreamcast VMU/Project Cafe controller. and the NGP also has a built in microphone for additional game control possibilities for any PS3 game.
sounds like a disaster IMO
it def. could be, though i still stand by it would be interesting to at least see in action, how Sony would implement it.
sounds as bad as when they planned using the psp as a rear view mirror for racing games
kind of a small screen to use IMO. If this is true then i hope their is TV connectivity or remote play like PS3 to PSP only the other way around.
Not sure if you can really make out what's on the screen standing that far back as the figure supposes. But using the Move freely can be as useful as all of the newfangled uses for the Wii Remote.
whats the point? The ps move provides worse controls than the psp already has. No more stupid gimmicks please
Well, as much as I love my playstation 3 and all, and love killing higs with the move, I'd rather not look like a complete doofus carrying the move on the go.
imagine if they made mini moves for the PSP. I do not think they will develop this. Just patenting the idea
please no.... =/
Well that will be interesting.
wtf.. all I said was it will be interesting.
i dont get how this would even work
Tbh it would be a stupid idea, kinda defeats the purpose of a hand held device if you have to sit it down to play it with your magic wand. I can see that working well on the train, as dodgy Dave runs away with your NGP while you play.
Why would you want to its a handheld ?
That was my first question. Seems silly and inconvenient if I'm playing on a train or plane -- which is often.
I'm guessing they're tryna tap into the fact that there are more handhelds than home consoles. Still seems silly to me.
maybe if you were playing the handheld at home, connected it to your PS3 and used move controls? Or possibly take out the PS3 part of that and just playing it at home.. I mean I cannot see myself personally using it but I won't count it out until I see it in action
yes psp n tablets lol
I don't care for the move or handhelds. That being said. If it's possible and people actually want it then I say go for it. It just sounds to me that it wouldn't really work with a tiny device. What would be the point of it?
Like something that might be big in Japan where houses are smaller and portables are bigger.
uhh... how the fuck?!
Could it work if they put TV out on the NGP?
I could see that working a lot better than a dock and playing off the NGP screen.
Yeah that would definitely work, just use the NGP's cameras as the Eye.
If it's driving up the cost of NGP then no thank you.
Well its says for PSP aswell.
I'll wait to make a judgement until I actually see it in action.
Who knows, Sony might be able to pull it off.
I'm cautiously optimistic
Would be good if they can work on the tablets Sony just released but i'm not sure about it on the PSP/NGP but hey i'm not complaining about additional functionalities. The PSP has a tv out cable as well so i can sort of see it working.
they might be planning on letting you use the ngp as a ps eye so if you dont already have one, you wouldnt need one if you had ngp, just use the ngp as a camera
The glasses part interests me.Anyone remember CES 09? they did a stage demo and showed off glasses that had screens in them. 2 min mark http://www.youtube.com/watc... I'm sure the tech has improved by now,and they should be able to do 3D.Could be interesting if NGP can stream to them.And while the pics look funky,it could make a move style device work. With the glasses on you could do some crazy augmented reality.You could play COD and see the gun in your hand,and if the glasses had gyros,you could also head track.
Whoa, so the dock has two of its own cameras and it has mechanics to move around and track the PS move? Quite intelligent, Sony. For those who are not seeing the plans falling in place, yet. Here is a little illustration of the possible gaming implications: -You have a PS Move, 3D glasses, NGP, PS3, an HDTV and, the dock (in front of the TV). --You insert a game CD into the PS3 disc tray --Boot up the NGP and place it on the dock --The NGP syncs with the dock --The PS Move syncs with the NGP --The NGP syncs WITH the PS3 --The stereoscopic 3D is synced -Ready, set, go!!! A gamer has the perspective of two (stereoscopic) 3D displays, a wider range of motion controlling and everything else that comes with technology like the PS move, NGP and, PS3.
Its portable meaning you can take it places.. NGP and psp can hook up to tv. On vacation? just bring ur NGP and ps move controllers in a small case. Fun even while your chillin at the hotel. nothing wrong with that folks. great idea
NGP dose not need it & PSP is on it's way out the door eventually anyways!
