Video: PlayStation Move E3 2010 Sony PS3 Tech Demo Arrives

200°
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.

Sony CEO Jack Tretton: PS4 Only When Technology Exceeds PS3

750°
251w ago - During a recent 'Year of the PlayStation 3' interview with [Register or Login to view links], Sony's CEO Jack Tretton stated that PS4 will only come when technology exceeds the PS3.

To quote: What of the successor to the PlayStation 3, the PS4?

Jack Tretton doesn't seem to know, telling Fast Company that he "can't even imagine what can be done technically beyond the PlayStation 3 in the near future."

Tretton continued to reiterate the same "ten year" message - the proposed shelf life of the PS3 - that the Sony team has followed since even before the launch of the system. With 2010 marking the fourth year of the PS3's life cycle, it seems increasingly likely that Sony will stick to that goal.

Of course, that's not to say the "PS4" won't ever be realized. We'll see the PS4 "when somebody can craft the technology that exceeds what we're able to do on the PS3," Tretton offered, adding "we are still just starting to harness [the PS3].

Neither a price or release date was given, but we were told that the device will plug into the PSPgo, allowing users to play their UMD games on the portable.

"The only problem is that it'll make the PSP a little bulky", said our source."
