Video: PlayStation Move E3 2010 Sony PS3 Tech Demo Arrives

200°
212w ago - Today IGN has posted up a PlayStation Move Sony PS3 tech demo from E3 2010 which can be seen below alongside a Kung Fu Rider PlayStation Move video.

As recently revealed, the PlayStation Move motion controller features an orb at the head which can glow in any of a full range of colors using RGB light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

The colored light serves as an active marker, the position of which can be tracked along the image plane by the PlayStation Eye.

The uniform spherical shape and known size of the light also allows the system to simply determine the controller's distance from the PlayStation Eye through the light's image size, thus enabling the controller's position to be tracked in three dimensions with high precision and accuracy.

The sphere-based distance calculation allows the controller to operate with minimal processing latency, as opposed to other camera-based control techniques on the PlayStation 3.

Those interested can check out the PlayStation Move E3 2010 Sony PS3 tech demo and a Kung Fu Rider PlayStation Move video below!

Split/Second PS3 Demo Crashes Into PSN Tomorrow

50°
217w ago - Disney Interactive Studios Senior Global Brand Manager Mitch Powers has announced that tomorrow the Split/Second PS3 demo crashes into PSN.

To quote: We're excited to announce that the Split/Second demo is coming to PSN for PlayStation 3 tomorrow!

To prepare you for the action you'll be experiencing, I wanted to provide you with a bit more information about the demo which takes place in our "Airport" location. After we had such a great response from fans who played this level at E3 2009 and both Penny Arcade Expo events in Seattle and Boston, we thought it would make a great demo to release to everyone in advance of the game.

In Split/Second, you build up your power meter through skilled driving techniques and then trigger what we call "Power Plays" to take out opponents and alter the track. All this takes place in the premise of a huge global broadcast event where you play as a contestant trying to win the season championship.

The airport track features some incredible moments that YOU can trigger - including a navigational radar dish that explodes off its base and a tram that slams into a parking structure creating some real shock waves on the track.

There are also some other really huge Power Plays you can activate like taking down the...
