Hustle Kings PS3 Interview with Tech Director Mark Williams

50°
221w ago - SCEE Contributing Editor Roland Fauster has shared an interview today with Technology Director Mark Williams on Hustle Kings for PS3.

To quote: Programming is maths and, in Hustle Kings, you've had to calculate friction, respect natural laws of spin and momentum, and have all these balls clashing with each other in chaotic order.

Who explained the physics and to you, Stephen Hawking?

Haha, well yes, you are right: programming is maths. Unfortunately, they don't teach you the equations for moving balls around a pool table in school. However, for most things a bit of imagination and intuition can help to combine several basic rules of maths and physics to do things that actually look quite clever.

For the really difficult stuff, we have to rely on other people's work and, luckily for us, one guy by the name of Wayland Marlow spent years researching exactly how billiard balls react with one another and with the table. We use his research extensively in Hustle Kings to get the motion of the balls as close to real life as possible.

Are you aiming to simulate reality or to gain the most entertaining gaming experience?

I think it's always very important to concentrate on the gaming experience first and foremost. There is no...
 

Video: New PlayStation Move PS3 Tech Demo Arrives

222w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a fresh PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller tech demo video today.

To quote: While some of you already have the new PlayStation Move motion controller in your hands and others are just hours away, it seems a good time to post this tech demo from Move's inventor, Dr Richard Marks.

I particularly like the sculpting part and I really hope this makes it's way into a game one day as a weapon customisation tool.

I hope you're enjoying Move so far, those of you that have your hands on it.





In case you missed it, here's a video interview I shot with Richard when he visited London a couple of months ago.




 

Video: PlayStation Move: New Tech Demo Video Tour Arrives

225w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared a new PlayStation Move PS3 Tech Demo video tour today.

To quote: Anton Mikhailov has become a rockstar of sorts, headlining a global tour with his favorite instrument – PlayStation Move.

Armed with a collection of new tech demos, Mikhailov and our Research & Development group have spent the year demonstrating the technology and precision behind PlayStation Move to developers and the larger gaming community.

With camera and PlayStation Move controllers in hand, Anton and I locked ourselves in a room and captured a new peek at what you can expect to see from titles on the PlayStation Move. You may have seen PlayStation Move tech demo videos before – including the PlayStation.Blog's three-part tech demo tour from E3 2009. But you've never seen them like this!





You'll notice that Anton was comfortably sitting on a couch when using the PlayStation Move controllers and the PlayStation Eye never reacted negatively to its reflection from our wall of monitors. These aren't gesture triggering animations, folks, but true 1:1 gameplay.

Video: Fresh PlayStation Move PS3 Tech Demo from NYC Event

230w ago - For those who'd like to see how the development of Sony's PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller has progressed since E3 2010, today DualShockers (linked above) have shared a fresh tech demo from SCEA's recent NYC media event.

To quote: "Yesterday we were fortunate enough to hang out with our buddy Anton Mikailov from SCEA at Sony's Holiday media preview event in NYC.

We caught up with Anton and the PS Move a while back, and although he had some cool stuff to show us last time around, this time I was absolutely floored.

Anton showcased some never before seen PS Move tech demos; the same demos that are being shown to 3rd party developers and publishers in order to showcase what the PS Move is all about.

The first demo in the clip, is one you may have seen but just wait until you see the "chameleon" and "Rts" demos. Just think about all of the potential. Amazing is the only way to describe it."

Video: PlayStation Move E3 2010 Sony PS3 Tech Demo Arrives

236w 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!
