Sony has released a new video of EyePet, the new virtual pet game for the PlayStation 3.
sony shuld have shown this at their conference.
Sony is definitely at the forefront of innovation in everything they do. I expect the Xbox Defense Force to come in here real soon and try to downplay this epic trailer but the truth of the matter is, this was awesome and the innovation is undeniable. I definitely believe that the PS3 Eye is the most accurate motion detecting camera I've ever seen on a console. And look, you can draw on a sheet of paper and the PS3 instantly recognizes it, think of the possibilities. Just imagine if they showed this at E3? It serves as just another gauntlet Sony could have let loose to decimate the competition. But Sony loves to keep it's cards and play at the right moments. That's smart. Oh, speak of the devil. Hey Jolly, how's it going? Troll much today?
That little guy was super cute.
Had too much on their plate this time around, and probably weren't expecting something like Milo from MS.
Love it! Sure gift for all the kids of PS3 owners. Thx Sony! Getting me out of gift decisions easy.
with all of the disagrees, I guess it wasn't cute. Naw man, I don't really troll. Thanks for asking though.
You're probably a victim of rep.
@JOLLY1 The "little guy" could also mean the kid.. bad choice of words i guess
More like a victim of opinion. *Edit* Good eye Leio, My bad! That furry creature was adorable.
Basically the PS Eye already does what the Natal can do..
The trailer hit the PSN last night. I am looking forward to this, I was hoping they would show it a E3 but I will take a new trailer. Yes this little guy is super cute, I just wonder when this is going to hit retail.
@40cal...the trailer's on PSN? Nice EyePet FTW!
"Basically the PS Eye already does what the Natal can do.. " "Basically" being the key word. With Natal that little monkey thing would be able to interact differently with every person within the camera shot and recognize that there are multiple people. Still this is very cool tech and not a diss on it. The EyeToy has been good for its time. I just wish Sony would support it more.
So cuuuuuuuuuuuute! *~* They should have shown this! That would have really blown everyone away.
OMG don't feed that M*****F***** after 12, I'm telling y'all now.
have the option to change the creature in Eye Pet to the creature in the Last Guardian. Instant buy for me on day 1.
@Crab I think Eye can do it already (recognize faces), actually this entire "control games with you body" thing was totally possible with EyeToy and the hardware of Eye (which I'll take as an example of what Natal will be more or less) isn't that differente from EyeToy. Those motion controls will be much more based in new software than in new hardware.
And he kept asking me to play tis video again... and again... and again. He was mezmerised by it! Smiling broadly and really quiet whilst watching. That makes it a day 1 buy for me (my son). This isn´t really as advanced as the body tracking in Natal is SUPPOSED to be. The PS eye (please don't call it eyetoy, its not an eyetoy, its much more than a bog standard webcam) can recognise objects and sound in 3D space, but its not full body motion like Natal. And I agree with GE Crab..... where are all the PS Eye games? we got a handfull on PSN when PS eye was launched (Along with Eye of the Beholder) and we've had nothing since! We sould have had at LEAST a new Eye(Toy) Play game! Eye Play 4 with 3D space recognition and audio positioning features anyone? (PS eye can detect audio space as well with its multi mic array). Well, my imagination is running wild now! :)
I don't think they had enough time. They even had to cut the GOW3 presentation short.
They should have cut the #'s talking down. We don't need 30 minutes of talk about ps3 sales. Show fun stuff!
I agree with Jolly here. I was thinking the same thing during the conference. I'm not impressed by sales. I just want to know what kind of fun I can expect to have. For me, the PS conference definitely delivered on that front with my highlights being Last Guardian, Uncharted 2, and ModNation Racers. But they could have shown EVEN MORE fun things and left out some of the sales talk.
great fun for the family, young and old alike.
Wow i love what they did with the picture thing, how you draw and it comes to life. I wonder though if there is a limit to what can be drawn and come to life. That is cool, i will keep my eye on this game.
Actually, I would like to know, if that's not just a fake. I mean, how does this little guy know, that those parts make a plane. And then even builds it and you can take the controller and fly it. If true, that's awesome, but I think that's just marketing. I would think you can paint and he would scan that, but knowing its a functional plane ??
its not new.
released yesterday. its not the same.
Whats the release time frame on this ... application???
Q4 2009 US and UK.
That thing is completely fascinating, the motion tracking and recognision of the drawing. That video have just blowed my mind :) And that pet was so cuute :)
...'pp' isn't he CUTE!!! ;-D Looked really cool that, i want 1!!! ;)
For sizzle my hizzle.
Imagine if they put a Sackboy in the selectable pets
http://blog.us.playstation.... nitro look at this back at 2007 they got it working btw same guy from sony presentation. Pse blog has a interview about eyepet btw.
Oh yeah, I'm remembering those videos. I really can't wait to see what the developers can do with the PS Eye. Adding your own contents to games is a really cool thing :P
So how come this is a cool video, but the vid that MS showed of the possibilities with the camera was BS?
Natal was a good demo also. I like the idea behind both of them. Although M$ showed a lot of different things with Natal, The Eye Toy can already do most of that stuff. The Milo kid demo was cool too, but again if Sony wanted to they could add this functionality to EyePet. Basically EyeToy + Motion Controller = Natal with more functionality because of buttons on the controller. Milo = EyePet with more functionality. In conclusion, what M$ showed was cool, but it wasn't anything that someone with an EyeToy hadn't seen before. Yet, what Sony showed with the Motion Controller was different because of the emphasis on accuracy. Example: Natal's paint demo vs Motion Controller's writing demo. The paint demo was horrible because it lacked accuracy. Where the Motion Controller was like writing with a real pen in hand.
but Eyepet = interactive fuzzy cat/dog/monkey thing. and Milo = interactive 12 year old boy. it just seems...WRONG. as for Natal, personally, i was impressed, but i remember when Eyetoy was shown off for the PS3 a few E3s ago, many an Xbox fanboy hated on it, and downplayed it. now that MS has something VERY similar to Eyetoy, with improvements, it's hot sh*t. ALL fanboys do this. motion control sucked until every console got their version of it. i just find it ironic that Microsoft and Sony's motion control seem to be applying it to gaming better than Nintendo. lol.
12 year old boy ? No way. In no way can an AI simulate a 12 year old boy. It can use an expert system to "simulate" responses, which might look that way, but in no way will this simulation be complete. Its very sophisticated, for sure. But that behavior is actually independent of the visual recognition problem, but solely an AI one. I think the "hate" reaction (if you want to call it that way) is maybe (?) based on that some people praise Natal as the second coming (because its from MS) while the PS-Eye (not-toy - the PS3 version is called PS-Eye) is simply ignored like it had never existed. Weird, don't you think ?
i agree. at this juncture, it's simply way too hard to simulate real artificial intelligence, so, if anything, Milo will more than likely creep everyone the f*ck out more than amaze them. things like animation, movements, will always feel unnatural, because we all know what a 12 year old looks and moves like. i think Milo will always disturb us, because, subconsciously, we'll constantly know that it's not a real kid. i think the EyePet route is smarter, because it's a fictional creature, that behaves like an animal, but because it's not a real animal, we don't have all of those subconscious triggers that we recognize when interacting with real dogs and cats and animals that will remind us that this ficitional EyePet creature isn't a real animal. it will move and behave like, well, an EyePet, thus selling it's believability. it's the same principle behind the cat/eagle thing in The Last Guardian. because we've never seen a real life cat/eagle thing (yet), we can totally buy the realism and believability of the creature in The Last Guardian. lastly, i just can't imagine ever wanting to talk to a 12 year old in my games. however, i can see having a little EyePet as a cute diversion and less creepy to play around with (especially when here in Los Angeles, there are plenty of apartments that won't allow you to have pets). if i wanted to interact with a teenager in my video games, Molyneux, i'd hop on Xbox LIVE or the PSN, and be called all manner of racist, sexist, homophobic expletives.
Nice, but I hope this wasn't the "big" announcement that was scheduled for today.
this was released yesterday on psn, thus not an unveling either cause this was frist unveiled at last year's e3
that goes to show how after seeing what Microsoft showed the previous day, they sent some one to japan to look into the old dusty closet and bring something to E3, they just forgot to bring this one. looks cool though.
You just couldnt resist trying to turn this topic into a PS3 Eye vs Natal could you.God damn fanboys
omg how late dude
and even i found this awsome! too bad i have no viable excuse to get it lol
I do have one: Curiosity.
Wow! This is the next level on virtual pet interaction. I love it.
Thanks for linking the song. Now I'm off to listen to it!
You think this is more advance than Natal? Hahahahahahhahahahahahahhahaha hahahha delusional PS3 droids! Hahahaahahaha This is Casual stuff I thought you PS3 fanboys hate that stuff. ;-D
I guess both companies (Sony and Microsoft) are developed AI enabled characters according to the intelligence of their target audience. This is indeed a cute little sony leg humper.. isn't he?
Give it a [email protected] rest will you. You keep calling people sony leg humpers, but you must go the whole hog and hump every part of Microsoft.
Bladestar humps Microsofts leg, in return they rape him in the ass! in return he acts like a retard in their honour on N4G
"Bladestar - 1 hour ago PM Track Ignore 3 - ... I guess both companies (Sony and Microsoft) are developed AI enabled characters according to the intelligence of their target audience. This is indeed a cute little sony leg humper.. isn't he?" yeah, he reminded me you but you are green and live in a cave
"I guess both companies (Sony and Microsoft) are developed AI enabled characters according to the intelligence of their target audience. This is indeed a cute little sony leg humper.. isn't he? " hahahhahaha "are developed"? I guess Microsoft's AI must be incredibly stupid to reflect your intelligence.
i want it, dont care what anyone says, but sony should show teens playing around with it. itd take away a little of the OMG ITZ TEH CASUAL feeling to the trailer when gamers like my friends see it.
I said it looked cool, give it a rest. and if you look through the natal stories you're gonna see 80% of posts talking sh!t about it from PS3 fanboys, so don't give me that fanboy line/crap.
It's so awsum!! =D At least it isnt a creepy depressed kid.... Omg its so cute i might get one!! =O its hella awsum =D!!!
the pet should have been the Kitty-bird from The Last Guardian, he is cuter :)
id settle for a baby dragon pet which can grow up into an adult flying dragon pet (still small tho) u no something that can breathe fire, has wings, walks on all 4's and very sharp spikes and scales on it.
there always has to be the image/reflection of the person on the TV screen, same with the boxing game, just curious, is this somthing it has to have to work?
I think it's just so you can easily see where you're moving. Mesmerise, for example, has modes where you can't see your image on screen. Same with Aqua Vita, I believe.
Bladestar this is meant for a younger audience, just give it a rest will you.
House really looks like that on the inside lol that chair look really bad and not nice to sit on lol.
Create your Pet thingy.
I do believe PS3 fans will request for sheep.
It is fact, M$ fans will ask for repairs!
