PS3 Secret Hardware Revealed

Megagames has a juicy rumor on the PS3.

Quote:
In conclusion, we have a very reliable source that claims Sony will have a PS3 peripheral which will recognize a user and his entire environment as well as his movements and will incorporate them into useful, in-console actions. The applications of this tech to gaming are obvious and if this story is proved right, Sony may yet manage to steal Nintendo's thunder in this generation of the console wars.

I don't know what it is but they are working with this company

Hmmm. Could be cool, but it seems a little far fetched.

I will remain dubious yet interested.

Ya, it could give a boost to the PS3, but it isn't exclusive to the PS3. A PC version will be released around the same time, and if it is a success we'll probably see it on other consoles as well.

What?

They are going to try and IMPROVE the eyetoy?

Shocking!!!!

I also doubt that improved eyetoy software will be unique top Sonys console in any way.

I call bullshit:
Quote:
In a time when everyone is heaping praise, and rightly so, on Nintendo for innovating and daring to be alternative, many have forgotten that Sony has a proven record of fresh ideas including the introduction of Eye Toy which all of its rivals will be using in some shape or form in their new consoles.
The Eye Toy is not fresh innovation, and I hadn't heard that Nintendo would be using it on the Wii. And I really, really dislike articles that reference "anonymous sources".

Bleh.

Also, peripherals don't make or break consoles.

If it's an optional component, then many developers won't bother making games that incorporate it. For example, compare how many 4-player games there are for the PS2 when compared to the Gamecube. It's difficult for a developer to rationalize coding a feature that only a percentage of the users will bother paying extra to access.

Come on people! This is GOOD PS3 news. Aren't folks here always bemoaning the amount of negative PS3/Sony news?

It would be pretty huge if the EyeToy came standard with the PS3. Then maybe they'd start making good games that use it.

Sounds exactly like what MS already demonstrated with the 360 camera at E3.

And this is coming for PC as well? So then I would assume that it's just a standard USB device that could be put out for the other consoles as well.

*yawn*

I think it was stated, many years ago, that PS3 would ship with eyetoy, which is what this article sounds like it is describing.

Eyetoy won't work for me though. I use a Projector to play games on. The eyetoy freaks out with all that light thrown out by the projector, and, there isn't a TV to set the damn thing on.

It also makes me wonder, how will this device be able to pick out 4 people playing tennis together?

Please....... what a bullshit article. Not even worthy of mentioning on EA.

This kind of technology doesn't exist let alone in an affordable little package. Probably just is eyetoy 2 with some face tracking.

Many people here own projectors. Aren't they lesser quality than standard HD displays? They're cheaper, but do they still offer a great quality picture? I have no clue about this sort of stuff. I figured there were more cons to them than it was worth owning.
