The PlayStation 3: Past, Present and Future

334w ago - The PS3: Past, Present and Future...

Past

March 23rd 2007. This was the date that many Europeans had been anxiously awaiting, counting down to the day that they would get their shiny piece of the future. Expecting to find graphics that blew away the competition, and features that left all before it in the dust, many early adopters fired up the latest iteration of the Playstation only to be met with a system that lacked support, and had only a handful of exclusive features.

It is true that on launch day the PS3 did not seem to be the powerhouse, or gamer's choice machine that it promised to be. Despite having great launch titles such as Motorstorm and Resistance, the PS3 was a victim of its own hype, delivering nothing more than a standard console launch with only a handful of killer titles. This was to continue, as time went on the entry 20GB system was axed, leaving the 60GB as the only option for those who wanted to enter the next generation of Playstation, and at £425, it was by no means cheap.

This combination of price, lack of support and only the mere promise of killer apps and a bright future held the PS3 back at the beginning of its lifecycle. Sony believed that they had an ace in the hole however with the inclusion of a Blu-Ray drive and HDD as standard on all...
 

Sony to have 1:1 Motion-Tracking Sensing Sword Game by X-Mas?

50°
337w ago - Sandy Spangler has revealed two new EyeToy games that will be released by Christmas this year.

Although Hero is the more interesting out of the two. It is a title in which the sword can be tracked at all times and allows for more complex gameplay, sounds like the Wii better be on its guard!

To quote: Hero was undoubtedly the more interesting of the two, being the first story-driven EyeToy game. (That means the other eighteen EyeToy games were just gimmicky mini-game collections then?) This title is controlled by means of a fluorescent-green foam toy sword. If you felt silly with a Wiimote in your hand, you're gonna love this.

As the game can track where the sword is at all times, this allows for more complex gameplay. The first thing to note is that EyeToy Play: Hero is played from a first-person perspective, so the player's image is not displayed onscreen like most other EyeToy games.

What is seen onscreen is a glowing green representation of the sword that the player holds, and as the game is camera-based it follows the player's movements to an exact 1:1 ratio.
