Thomas Ellis of Gamer Attitude wonders how the PS4's Camera could be used.
Skype and thats it. No one wants to play games with these things.
Everyone knows it's a speciality device to stream **** on Twitch via Playroom. Duh!
Id really like to see Sony try and put that Eyedentify PS3 game into production. Could be a sweet game for a camera.
I wouldn't know seeing as how the have been sold out since launch. Very frustrating.
Yeah, it's been literally harder to spot one in stock at $60 than it is to spot an in stock $400 PS4.
PS4 has Skype?
It is nice having all that playroom stuff (as long as the content remains free) but I feel the camera is best served with unimportant features in games and not directly with games. For instance with split screen swapping over the screens if you move. Things like that which isn't so important or necessary but for those who get the camera it is a nice addition. Let's be honest the camera is only really useful for (and built for) streams. I am okay with it only being used for that.
TBH, i am not really bothered either way, my little lad loves it playing Playroom, but they need to release some Move orientated games. Also logging into PS4 is a breeze with facial recognition, just sit there with controller in hand as you power on and the PS4 logs me into my PSN account automatically.
yet people put down the xbox ones kinect for doing the same type of thing in regard to auto sign in etc
I do understand what you are saying, but the PS4 eye was not forced onto people, people werent forced into paying an extra amount because there was a camera included. I bought the KZ:SF bundle which had two controllers and the PS4 eye, as it happens i wanted KZ:SF and two controllers, this package had it all plus the camera and for the same price as just buying a PS4, KZ:SF and two controllers, in essence, i got the PS4 eye for free. I really want to buy an X1, but i wont until they release a kinectless version and is around the £300 - £320 mark.
People are not putting down kinect because of its auto sign in feature lol. People are pissed that they were forced to buy a 200 dollar camera to do it with. There also pissed the hardware is weaker because the entire console has been based around an overly priced gimmicky camera.
I disagree about the logging process. If I have the controller in my hand I will just press X. It would be great if you have tens/hundreds of accounts on the system but for four or five if you have the controller in your hand you might as well press x
Nah about the Kinect stuff. People down play Kinect because it is on the other system. Some legitimately want the price lowered, but that is a separate issue, as M$ could drop the price if they wanted to, by as much as they feel to, and still leave Kinect in the box. People were hating on Kinect before the first one was even released.
I agree Kinect is forced on people but he didn't say that, he said that Kinect does the same stuff yet people put it down, yet when Sony does it it's ok, that was his point, not about price.
But people put the Kinect down because it is forced on people and in turn puts up the price of the One (nothing to do with the more positive fealing towards Sony than Microsoft). That is an issue as some people don't really see the kinect's added value if it is doing said stuff. The ones that do like it probably don't mind the extra cost and probably would have bought it as an extra (for doing those system functions as that is pretty much what the new Kinect does at the moment) It is all about options. I am not a camera person. The only reason why I ended up with the PS camera is because I wanted another controller (for FIFA times) and the Killzone bundle pretty much gave it to me for free.
Eye of Judgement 2
I can only see these devices being used for streamin, voice commands, party games or like any other webcam.
I wouldn't have bought Kinect as an extra on X1, but since it was forced on me I've given it a chance and I actually really do like it a lot. The voice stuff has worked great for me and I do like turning my entire entertainment center on and off by just saying Xbox On/Off. It's best use so far as been Xbox Record That, which is awesome. Beyond that there's no huge thing the Kinect has done that's made me go WOW, but it's done its share of little things to make me like having it. Like I'll realize I left the receiver remote on the desk, so I can just adjust the volume with my voice instead rather than having to get up. Sure, a tiny thing, but useful. I think people who claim they got home with their Xbone and just threw the Kinect in the closet and never bothered hooking it up once should at least try it for a few days. You spent the 100 bucks either way. At least TRY to get some value out of it.
Port the Eyetoy games to PS4 as free to play.
The camera can be used for Head Tracking in War Thunder so their is a game that does use it and I believe one more does or its coming out soon that will. I heard of some games that will take use of it. I really wanna get one as soon as I find it. Should of at least picked it up before I got a PS4 if I knew it was gonna be this hard to find.
yes theres a game coming , im not sure of the name but it takes a picture of you at certain scare points in the game for you to upload and share . this should be funny
Wait I think you reminded me it may be a horror title called Daylight?
yea that could be it , i keep getting that and dying light mixed up though but either way im sure devs are going to find funny and original ways to use these that aren't going to be detrimental to the game if you don't have a camera but add to it if you do, so im glad i got mine.
I got one with my killzone bundle used it for about an hour on playroom have now sold it, I'll grab one again in the future when it's an essential unlike the console itself which i had to have it was just cheaper to get the über bundle even if I didn't want a second controller or camera, I'll grab one Christmas time or next year. I'm not a fan of streaming me playing as I like to just get on with it and why anyone would wanna just sit there and watch someone play rather than just do it themselves is beyond me, I can understand to gain tips or tactics and then using it when playing themselves again, but don't really wanna just sit there and watch someone else play and just chat rubbish all over the top. But that's just me.
I'll get one when somebody releases an extension cable. I can't use it since I have a projector and my components are 15 ft from the screen.
i just cant find one anywhere,i want mines specifically for my streaming needs,loooks so fun!
