i'm surprised this is ps2 and not ps3

I expect we'll see this kind of thing for the PS3 as well, but the PS2 is in a much better position to directly compete with Wii and the PS2 is still more profitable for Sony. By the time PS2 stops being a major profit center for Sony the PS3 should be firing on all cylinders - sounds like a good strategy to me.

Once PS3 gets 1:1 i'm selling the Wii.

Damn, I was hoping to sell you mine! ;)

The likes of Red Steel was one of my primary motivators for picking up my Wii at launch...and we all know how THAT turned out. :(

U could own a 129$ motion PS2 instead of buying a 250$ Wii.

Excellent, Sony aren't even close to fully utilizing the PS3 camera. This is a great start. I know a lot of people out there find it difficult to get their heads around the console controllers with all their buttons. This is a easy, fun and interactive way to get into gaming.

I think the logic on a PS2 rather than PS3 release, is that PS2 market penetration is still much, much better than PS3's. Plus, with it's cartoony graphics, a game like this wouldn't really benefit from a 'next-gen' upgrade.

One solution would be to copy the techniques of motion capture, which is to have indicative markers/dots on the peripheral itself. Making a foam sword or ____ obviously doesn't cost too much, so there's a lot of potential when they move over to the PS3 (publicly).

Totally never expected that!
Nice to hear some little movements of technology going on at SCEE
Question is; 'for PS3, or not for PS3?'

Fishy Fingers3722d ago

This is for the PS2, although Id like to see these ideas grow into the PS3's domain.

thePatriot3722d ago
