PlayStation Eye More Precise Than Microsoft's Project Natal?

500°
276w ago - No doubt the major talk of E3 2009 was all about the motion-sensing technologies demoed by Sony and Microsoft at their press conferences.

Microsoft's Project Natal's major selling point is full-body recognition and the promise of a controller-less game experience, while Sony's PlayStation Eye-powered motion tech aims to turn a single controller into any virtual item imaginable (i.e. swords, tennis racquets, whips, whiskey bottle, etc.).

To quote: Sony's director of marketing John Holler told [Register or Login to view links] that the PlayStation Eye is "more accurate and more precise" than Microsoft's motion-sensing tech, and, even though Project Natal's full-body scanning capabilities is "impressive," it also, allegedly, suffers from "depth issues on the Z-axis."

This assessment is obviously impossible to confirm until some impartial testing can be done, so we'll just have to take Holler's comments with a PS3-emblazoned grain of salt for now.

What's perhaps more interesting about this whole ridiculously premature debate about technologies that are still years away from landing in living rooms is that Project Natal certainly does seem designed to out-casual the casual gaming genre Nintendo ushered...

Video: E3 09 on the Show Floor: Quantum for PlayStation 3

50°
276w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared another E3 2009 video, this time covering the upcoming PS3 title Quantum.

To quote: Today we bring you an interview on a game that many readers have been asking about: Quantum.

This 3rd person action-shooter is shaping up to be a very interesting addition to the PS3 software lineup, with a brutal brand of shooting that may well be a first on the console.

Take a look at the video (with US Producer Pete Garza) and let us know what you think.

I'm definitely looking to get more time with the game (which is currently around 40% complete), and we also are looking forward to sharing more with you as well.





More from the show floor to come!
 

Photo Sharing is Coming to Sony's PlayStation Home

100°
276w ago - Update: We experienced a minor glitch this morning with the Buzz space in PlayStation. We know what the issue is and we are working to resolve it as soon as possible. Please check back with the blog for an update on when it will go live.

Today PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX has announced that Photo Sharing is coming to PlayStation Home, as follows:

Greetings, Homies. Fasten your seatbelts, because we have the most exciting news to hit PlayStation Home since Open Beta! We know you loyal Home fans have been asking for media sharing since the get-go, and we're very happy to tell you that the first stage is here!

Photo sharing, the first feature to support user-generated content, is finally coming to PlayStation Home! Starting today, Thursday, June 4th, you'll be able to purchase picture frames in the Mall, upload photos from your hard drive or select from a gallery of default pictures, and then display them in your personal apartments.

So if you've got photos from your latest game tournament that you want to share, all you have to do is upload them, choose the angle and size options for display, and then invite your friends back to your Home pad for your viewing party. Awesome!

But that's not all! As usual, we have more exciting content...
