"Could make enemies tougher as players get scared"
Would be awesome if we could see some really scary monsters! Except that, Zelda games doesn't really scare me

Wow. This could actually be kind of cool. Other things I'd like to see:

1. Physical or emotional fatigue actually reflecting on Link.

2. Some way to distinguish between the fearful thumping of the heart and the adrenaline pumping? The former could make enemies tougher (but yeah, haven't really been scared by Zelda monsters either), the latter could make you faster, hence allowing for better reaction times...or maybe some kind of slow-mo mode? (Also reduced damage).

3. Wouldn't be so bad to finally work on those relationship angles. ;)

If this was properly done, man, it'd be way cool.

what exactly does this sensor do? How are you supposed to play the game with the thing attached to on of your hand's finger? Not trolling or anything just uninformed on this device.

I was wondering the same things. The vitality sensor seems like a huge distraction to gaming and I thought it was more for the Wii Fit crowd.

I find the Vitality sensor rather pointless though this would be a good way to implement it. The problem is, like the first guy said, Zelda games aren't scary...

Hopefully they find good ways to implement it, but it looks stupid playing a game with my index finger pinched by another attachment.

This is probably a good device for horror games, but Zelda? I don't know.

It can detect heart rate and other stats from your body.
You could clip it on your pink...its not like you are using your pink other than supporting the controller.

Nintendo constantly tries to use gimmicks for their games, it's so annoying because they don't even have basic things like proper online functionality. I sure am glad we are getting the real Zelda game we've always wanted on the PS3 (3D Dot Heroes). We can't rely on gimmicky Nintendo anymore.

ChickeyCantor3493d ago

Why the disagrees?
What was it I'm false about.

I would like to know.

" I sure am glad we are getting the real Zelda game we've always wanted on the PS3 (3D Dot Heroes). We can't rely on gimmicky Nintendo anymore."

Dude your trolling skills are horrible.

Keep telling yourself that. Zelda will shi$ on 3D Dot Heroes...stop being a fanboy. :)

I can't believe they're still doing this. I guess since they're pushing forward, I can act as if it matters. How will they account for people using the device with a lower standard of health? How will players with abnormal ranges of heart health properly use it? I am sure it will be able to get a rough baseline, but it will be the most boring 15 minutes of the gameplayers life. But even with a crude baseline, how will this help in any game? What is the point?

Sonyslave33493d ago

Vitality Sensor is going to be next big thing and Sony is going to copy it as they usual do.

kenpachi3493d ago

ChickeyCantor3493d ago

It wasn't sony who invented it damn it.
They actually got it from somewhere else.

na-no-nai3493d ago
