Sony Isn’t Forfeiting Anything With PS4 By Not Including The PS Eye The system still has motion gaming capabilities with Sixaxis.
I´m glad that the PS4eye is optional
ps4 eye vs kinect? An unfair competition for sure. although each camera have their own features.
lol, sounds like th author was trying to convince himself. He said rumble hasn't been used in an interesting way but then said don't mention when you fire a gun or a bomb goes off, only useful things....lmfao, yeah it was so useful its expected now, its subtle feedback that adds that little bit extra to the experience. I mean does he want "rumble" to shock us or really blow him up? lol, whoever wrote this should be ashamed...I feel dumber for having waisted 2 min of my life.
It's really all about software. Compared to the Kinect, the new PS cam has an extra camera (allowing for 3D photo and video), double the framerate (120FPS), a lower resolution (800p HD versus 1080p full HD), and no InfraRed blasting (allowing nightvision effectively and improved depth sensing). As far as i'm aware, both have the same field of view, and both have high sensitivity noise cancelling microphone arrays. But when it comes down to it - the capabilities come from the software, which is where Microsoft have a definite hefty advantage as they are so invested in their offering. Both provide motion control, play well with the controller and (as far as Sony has hinted) voice control and player/facial recognition. But as I said, Microsoft is putting a lot behind the Kinect whereas we can't really expect Sony to do as much software wise (especially as it is just an accessory in the PS4's case). Both cameras, in essence, do pretty much all of the same main things.
@blueblood17 You're honestly trying to tell us that the Eye is anywhere near as advanced as Kinect? Dude, the One may be shit in your opinion, Microsoft may be greedy pigs to you... But please, at least admit that in reality if anything the Kinect is miles better than the Eye, so much so that they're borderline incomparable.
Unnecessary comparison, more like it. BOTH will have full body motion tracking. BOTH will have voice and facial recognition. BOTH will have the SAME exact gameplay. Because believe it or not, BOTH will be limited by human motion, no matter if one has better tech than the other. They said the same thing about the first Kinect, but have you guys even seen most of its games? Who are we kidding here. Half of them were EyeToy level. The main advantage the PS Eye may have is buttons, which can add control and depth to the gameplay. Anyway, can we stop pretending that we care about either camera here as if they were important enough to redeem their respective consoles? Thanks. But if it helps some of you sleep better at night, yes Kinect has superior tech.
@Spoons I never said that! But it is true that they offer pretty much all of the same things, but that it really comes down to the programs running the camera - which I stated I believe Microsoft have a definite hefty advantage in simply because they re more invested in the kinect tech. @Disagrees, uh what is there to disagree with? I was only stating facts...
I think its a fair comparison.. Thing is, MS actually invested in something instead of tacking it on
If you haven't heard, so is kinect.
Honestly, who cares about either of these devices.
Both Cameras have differnt functions for their system. Xbox gamers and buyers are getting a great deal on Kinect 2.0 with all the techhnology and future upgrades it will provide.
An employee working on the One has even said that Kinect cost as much as the One to make. Things no joke, I was amazed at how it can practically track things under your skin!
An eye for an eye and a bluetooth for a bluetooth :P
There's always one! lol
I'm sure Sony has a few great ideas. I find it amazing how well killzone played
That article is horrible. Did anyone else feel like a 6th grader could have written that?
My attention span dropped by 50 points
Made sense to me. Was entertained. Maybe I'm just dumb.
I borrowed a universal translator from Captain Kirk, but even that struggled to make sense of this article.........
My head hurts but I have read the article to give all of you the low down. The author starts off by saying that like the ps3 the ps4 has motion controls. No one ever really did anything with them even though they have always been there. Then he goes on a rant about how rumble controls have been in consoles since 2000 and no one has done anything with it other then force feed back for guns and grenades. He ends the article saying that he has not seen any developers talking about Kinect and has not seen anything that developers will be using it for. He would like people to write him if they have seen the purpose of throwing in the Kinect in every box. now my head hurts. I am going to go lay down for a while.
good summary Dusdg. Why would someone write so ignorantly about something that is so highly publicized in the first place is beyond me so thinking 6th grade is close. All this guy has to do is google kinect and he'll instantly find several articles to clear up his confusion or he can start with one of the best launch games of either system, deadrising 3.
No contest there. Kinect is the more advanced technology. PS4eye isn't even a real 3d sensing camera.
Incorrect, on both fronts.
PS4EYE. Log in from view recognition. Voice control. To be used with psmove and ps4 controllers. Sony's PlayStation 4 Eye has two cameras each with a max resolution of 1280 x 800, four microphones and a field of view of 85 degrees, and all of these aspects work together in new ways, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida tells Engadget. The cameras, for example, mark a departure from the current PS Eye's single lens, and they each have specific tasks: One is in charge of capturing the setting and ensuring a quality picture, and the other handles motion tracking. The cameras will triangulate the 3D space, recognize gestures, enable Kinect-style body tracking and will work with Move functionality embedded in the DualShock 4 controller. Sony's goal is for players to be able to snap 3D pictures and video and store it on the PS4. The microphones will be incorporated into PS4 games, though Yoshida was tight-lipped about their role in potential voice-control functions for the console itself.
In other words they will attempt what kinect has already done...lol PS4 eye is 99% the same as the the last one. All they did was add another lens and put the move technology inside the ds4 and kept the same move controllers. pseye can't do what kinect can. MS has put billions into that technology that they developed in house. sorry but kinect is the more advanced tech. Sony is beat once again in this area. I'll leave you with this quote from the article which is so true. "But, Sony can only do so much. And, so far, they(devs) don’t care about those “external” things that come with the system. It’s meaningless to them. They have demonstrated it time after time."
@belking dang what an expert!!! s/
I'm not saying it's something i want. I couldn't careless about many of those features. I have Move controllers because of a few family games and the fight on PS3. Move works great when it's needed. For all else you use the standard controller. Some will love it, but it's never going to change the way people really game 99% of the time.
Wow its a troll convention in here. Glad there's nothing but Sony fanboys on this site./s. It'd gotta be hard to type when you got one hand on your junk, thinking about how cool Kinect is, and getting the most out of motion control.
Haha xbone fanboys getting giddy over kinect, might as well buy a wii.
By not including it they pretty much are. Kinect 2.0 will have 100% attach rate, which means companies will be much more likely to build games around it or add features supporting it. PS Eye will have a much smaller user base prompting companies to be much less likely to take advantage of the features, b/c there will be a considerably smaller user base for the PS Eye. Not saying it's a bad device, but attach rates do matter for developers especially when they are pumping in valuable resources to get games and features up and running on it.
Not sure how it's possible to downvote you here. What you just said is exactly the problem...100% attach rate means it's way more likely that devs include hybrid gaming experiences (Kinect + Controller), as well as more purely Kinect games. The risk will be too high for Devs on the Sony side knowing that the attach rate could potentially mess up any pay off of having motion gaming included in their games. Unless of course lots of people go out and get the PS4 Eye. In my opinion it just feels like Sony is doing another round of "me too" but not fully committing to it - Move anyone?? (Basically a cooler version of the Wiimote)
