15w ago - Following up on the previous rumor of Sony's PlayStation 4 costing around $400, today VGLeaks (linked above) has shared some details on the PS4 / Orbis Dual Camera functionality from a recent patent uncovered.
Below is the scoop, to quote: "When we unveiled Orbis, an enigmatic device called "Dual Camera" was also listed within the info.
"Dual Camera" appears to be an evolutioned HD Eyetoy instead of a Kinect device, based on the features offered right now.
It contains a pair of wide-angle cameras. Each camera offers a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p).
Sound is processed by a 4 microphone array working at 48 Khz.
The device can perform some non gaming tasks such as:
Recognize the user and log in the system
In the gaming field it supports head and hand tracking as new game inputs. Currently it's not clear if this device will support body tracking in the future as Kinect but it's almost sure that it will be bundled with every Orbis system."

i wish ps3 games were only $60us in aus. they are like $90 in aus and thats like $95 to $100 us atm. i hope they cost the same all around the world. its ridiculous i can buy a game shipped from england or usa to my door for up to half price of me getting it from psn store or local shop.
and whats even stupider is i can make a us acc on my ps3 and buy the same psn game for half price in us store than eu store. sony has got to be the biggest dog act around.
nothing like knowing youre being ripped off. mmm thanks sony... more please but anyways i heard the ps4 may cost $1000 in aus at launch. i'll still buy it 1st day (or new xbox) but it really annoys me thinking aus are stupid or whatever excuse they give.
$428 in USD? Yeah I'm pretty sure that's not the final price for the USA version. It will cost more than that here in the USA. I payed $600 for the PS3 when it came out. So.. yeah.
Now, PS2 games were like $50, PS3 games $60-70 and sometimes more lol. If PS4 games go higher than $70 I'm not going to bother with it at all and just build my self a gaming pc. At least i hope that they continue with the playstation plus features. Hoping that Sony also puts out something to stop the kiddos from playing matures games. Seriously...
